A serene, beautiful journey to the East Khasi Hills, Meghalaya!
The festival of colours is around the corner and revellers are all out to immerse themselves in colours and flaunt their best attire. Fashion during Holi has become quite the trend with celebrities following suit and donning their best attire to capture the essential Holi selfie. Although the quintessential wardrobe choice would be jeans paired with a white Kurti or Kurta, however, festivals call for experimentation to flaunt the look that would make heads turn. Here are a few style tips to capture the essence of the festival through your wardrobe.
No transparent clothing – The sultry summer heat can make anyone want to ditch solids and go for transparent clothing, which should be something everyone should avoid. Transparent clothing or clothes that cling to your body are not the ideal summer outfits as they cleave to your body when you get wet or sweat and make you feel uneasy.
Wear a loose fitting attire, preferably a cotton fabric – Cotton helps ease the heat from the sun and a fitted shirt can enable you to enjoy splashing colours without feeling squeamish. Go for vibrant coloured clothes or bold prints that make you look good even after you’ve drenched yourself in colours. A white Kurti with a bright coloured skirt or a tops in shades of yellow, orange and red paired with shorts would get you ready and all set for Holi. People with sensitive skin can pair a full sleeved Kurti with palazzos or long skirts to limit the exposure on their skin. A tie dye dupatta can add a little of funk to your outfit besides keeping you sheltered from colours that might affect your skin and damage your hair.
Go for a Classic Ethnic look – For those who wish to keep it traditional, opt for a ethnic outfit with a classic look. Take a cue from Rekha in the Holi anthem, ‘ Rang Barse’ and add grace to your style with a white chickankari long Kurta with leggings and a vibrant bandhini print dupatta to bring in the element of funk to your attire. When in doubt, you can always opt for the classic off white saree with an orange, yellow or red blouse to suit your outfit to the tune of Spring. A hair bun adorned with flowers would pair off well with the saree.
Choose denims for your casuals – If you wish to go casual this festival, throw in your light denim washed jacket over a casual white tee and pair it with a light ripped jean and finish your look with a pair of trainers. Since, you have decided to your look casual, you can always wear your old jeans or denim jackets to avoid wrecking your new outfits in the splay of colours. A white Kurti paired with jeans or a white shirt with shorts can also help keep your look simple and stylish. A pair of casual colourful slippers and sunglasses can go a long a long way in making an effortless style statement.
Fuse to suit your mood – Holi colours and coloured powder usually leave a stain and are quite difficult to scrub off. In case you want to enjoy the festival without having to spend the rest of your time scrubbing off the stains or lamenting the stain mark on your new shirt, you can create a fusion of the Indian and western garments to chalk out a stylish look. A colourful dupatta wrapped around your shirt and faded jeans brings in the Indo western edge to your attire and also prevents your shirt from getting stained. Accessorise your look with some silver jewellery like a silver necklace or danglers. Wear colourful or nude slippers to complete your look.
Ghagra Choli to flaunt at all the day time Holi parties – A ghagra Choli can never go wrong for all your day time Holi parties. Choose a cotton one with bright coloured floral prints and some tassels to add to the intricate design of the skirt that makes you stand out and feel comfortable. Punjabi juttis would bode in well with the ghagra Choli and complete your ethnic look. Go for minimal jewellery and wear silver bracelets to accessorise your attire.
