A splash of colour, jubilant excitement, music blaring loudly from speakers in every street brings forth only one kind of a festival to mind. What better way to reign in your inner wild child and go a bit crazy this Holi?
With the kind of parties we have to attend, all of us need a little bit of primping up on festive occasions, and the festival of colours is no exception! From staying on-point with trends to taking inspiration from our favourite Bollywood Divas, here are a few styling tips by LIVA to keep you looking your fabulous best this Holi.
Try Colour Blocking for Added Drama
For decades Holi has been attributed and celebrated in white–the colour of purity. Be it a simple, no-fuss kurta or a crisp saree, white has been the go-to colour for most when it comes to Holi. But this year, how about you try something new that is festive yet very trendy?
Say hello to the colour blocking trend! The festival of Holi is the perfect playground to experiment your style with this trend. Not only is colour-blocking in sync with the theme of this festival, but it can also amplify your overall look. Choose a kurta or tunic in a vibrant colour like red, orange, or blue. And, if you are feeling experimental, pair a neon shade with white.
Go Desi in a Legendary Bollywood Style
Remember the grand lehenga-choli that Deepika Padukone donned in Ramleela or the Patiala Salwar suit worn by Aishwarya Rai for a retro look? Not to forget, Rekha’s classic white salwar suit combo from Silsila. There is a ton of inspiration that one can draw from films portraying Holi, and we are all about the drama, aren’t we? A pop of colour can add oomph to your festivity and a kurta set like this one can be the head-turner for a classic Holi party.
Focus on the Fabric for a Move-Easy Stance
A very important aspect of being carefree is the kind of fabric your outfit is made of. When selecting your Holi outfit, choose a fabric that is breathable and well-absorbent, so it dries off quickly. Lightweight, nature-based fabrics like LIVA are soft and comfortable that they feel like second skin. They drape effortlessly, making them ideal choices for a day like Holi when you are bound to be on the move. Choose a flowy dress from LIVA that will fall effortlessly, making it an ideal choice for a day like Holi when you are bound to be on the move.
Mix & Match the Wardrobe Oldies
Aren’t we all big on using wardrobe rejects for our Holi day? Reusing our oldest clothes from the wardrobe, the ones that might as well be thrown out is a joy experienced best during Holi. No judgements, no inhibitions, bring out your oldest clothes and pair them well. So, let’s get the looks on point with these. We’re talking about a pair of old shorts with a tunic or a kurti. Or, a casual blouse paired with a printed flared skirt hiding away for months. Don’t be shy to rummage through your wardrobe for that oldie. Style it right, and and you will have your Holi OOTD on point.
Accessorise for a Finishing Touch
Never forget what a little bit of accessorising can do to your overall look and adding that extra bit of glam is essential. Whether it’s a set of ethnic bangles from a thrift shop, oxidised jhumkas, or necklaces that dangle, it all comes down to that one accessory that makes a chic statement. Flaunt traditional accessories with an ethnic skirt or kurti set to rock the theme like a desi diva!
With a little bit of thought, you can spruce up your Holi festive outfit in no time. So, go all out and play with your wardrobe choices. Wishing you a happy, vibrant and a super safe Holi, ladies!
