Everybody likes to look best in the Holi season. And, you did just that. We went around the city to find a few style codes that you cracked this Holi. With a twin deal – Holi and International Women’s Day, it was one fashionable ramp walk. If you are one of those fashionistas, then read on to know more about what’s hot.

This year, the fashion statement was a bit different. This year, ladies went traditional. They tried colours like yellows, magentas and pinks, instead of the quintessential whites. And there were a lot of surprises. Who said, that you can wear only whites during Holi?

Come on, gone are the days when you wore only ragged t-shirts and denim. Now, times have changed. So, has the style. If you are a Bollywood fan, then you can take some fashion inspiration for Holi from your favourite actress.

Rajasthani Kacchi Work On Lehengas And Sarees

These stunning lehenga in bright yellows, magentas and pinks add a pop of colour. Gota, Kundan, embroidery and a silk base made these stand out in the crowd. The patterns seem to be inspired around leaves, flowers and other natural motifs. They are lightweight and can add a touch of glamour to Holi. You can also pair up oranges with pink. It is a hot combination.

The Perfect Summer Essential – Handlooms

These lehengas appeal to all senses and can be teemed with westerns, for an Indo-western combo look. Moreover, this season handloom is doing the rounds. You can go back to Bandhej skirts, Silks with Gota Patti work and Chanderi. Handloom has essentially become a style statement today. Frills are trending in sarees. Sport one with contrast shades. Chanderi, tussar and linens are a fashion statement and our models are rocking the trend in various styles. Phulkari is another trend, this season. It can brighten up, any dull outfit today. You can team it up with a potli bag and a nice floral Juda.

A pop of colours is what you would expect. Checkout Sonam Kapoor’s looks in Ranjana. This is basic yet bold – we are talking about the yellow salwar kameez here.

Sequined Lehengas –

This Holi our models rocked the party in sequinned sarees and lehenga. Take a cue from Alia Bhatt’s look in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. It is super glam and can pep up anyone’s mood.

Drapes Say It All This Season –

Moreover, you can drape the saree in multiple ways. The Bengali style and lehenga style is quite cool and comfy, this season. So, try incorporating the look or get a professional do it for you. If you want to ditch the lehenga, try getting your saree draped that way. Better still, seek professional help for the Holi look.

For The Evening Look –

Grab some Maxi Dresses in midnight blues and maroon or wine reds. If you are saree person, flaunt a white Gorod Silk with black and red temple borders.

Makeup And Jewellery –

You can add a dash of pink or magenta to your lips. Keep the kajal to a minimum. And, leave false lashes at home. You don’t want to end up like a drenched mink, do you? It is better to go light on the accessories, especially hair accessories. All the colours seem to gather in the tresses.

You can stack up on some nice bangles, in a riot of colours. Try handmade, handcrafted and tribal jewellery. They are making headlines today. This will add enough oomph to your Holi attire. Silver and oxidized jewellery are trending.

Bonus Tips to Follow –

  • Saying goodbye to winters is not a bad thing after all. Do not wear heavy suits, lehengas and sarees.
  •  Settle for a messy look.
  • Go for light fabrics like cotton, tussar, muslin and chiffons.
  • Apply an ample amount of moisturizers and coconut oils.
  • And, last but not the least, apply a lot of coconut oil to your hair.
  • Sunglasses can glam up any outfit, so get a cool aviator this time or pop-coloured ones.
  •  Try using a colourful scarf as a bandana around your hair, to protect it from synthetic colours.

The Holi festival is meant to spread love and happiness. However, so do not forget to take care of your skin. Slay the roads, make them your ramp and enjoy this beautiful season of colours. Keep up the style- quotient for a few months, before another festive season arrives.
