reate a splash this spring not just with colours but with your wardrobe too. Holi gives us an excuse to let our inner child out while we party it up, but it doesn’t mean you let your style take a back seat. Clothes are a very important part of every Indian festival, so this Holi make sure you look fabulous with some hot looks from Style Mynt.
Look 1: Holy Holi
The Holi Pooja usually takes place on the eve of the festival or on the day itself. This is a ceremony to dress up for and wearing new clothes is usually a must. Ethnic clothes are most appropriate but remember not to go overboard with the bling. Whether you wear an Anarkali or a fitted salwar suit, dress it up with drop earrings, some pretty bangles and moderately high heels to complete your look. The boys can go for a silk kurta pyjama set or even an embroidered kurta over jeans with classy leather sandals.
Look 2: Colour me pretty
This is when the real party begins; playing with colours is fun but also needs you to get down and dirty. Dress the part and you will have a blast! White is often the first choice of clothing so that all the colours ‘pop’ once they are on you. However pastels like yellow, blush, powder blue and mint are also good options. If you feel like standing out in the crowd a vibrant hue would be the best. Girls can choose from simple salwar suits, tees and tanks paired with shorts or pants. The boys can wear kurtas, tees and jeans. Remember to wear clothes you are prepared to bid goodbye to, as the colours sometimes refuse to wash off.
Look 3: Holi Party
Playing Holi is not really everyone’s cup of tea, a lot of people host parties where you don’t necessarily have to participate but can just relax while you socialise and indulge in some delicious delicacies. Again, ethnic clothes are most ideal for Holi parties all though this time you can dress up more than you would for the Pooja. We are talking silk, shimmer, contemporary twists to traditional Indian wear, jewellery to adorn and footwear that will make heads turn. Perfect
Men can wear party shirts and trousers as an alternative to Indian attire, but most appropriate for the ladies would be a salwar suit or a saree.
So no matter how you are celebrating this festival of colours, make heads turn wherever you go. Happy Holi!
