“Rang barse bheege chunar wali, rang barse
Are kaine maari pichkaari tori bheegi angiya
O rangrasia rangrasia, ho
Rang barse bheege chunar wali, rang barse..
Sone ki thaali main jo na parosa
Are, sone ki thaali main jo na parosa
Haan, sone ki thaali main jona parosa
Are, khaye gauri ka yaar balam tarse rang barse
O, Rang barse bheege chunar wali rang barse..”
Holi, a spring festival celebrated in India. It signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive. Yes! The festival of colours is here. Don’t we all love this festival? Unlike other Indian festivals Holi fashion demands a twist. There is no way you are wearing things as you wear for other Indian festivals. Here, you need to go out and get all messy with colours and water and yet look your best! Sounds difficult? Not really!! I have got you some easy and comfortable styling tips. So make sure you look good and at the same time feel good this Holi!
Go ahead and have a look at the list that will not only keep you on a safe spot but help you look your best in the holi party.
Outfit Ideas –
1. A plain white anarkali suit with colourful dupatta! Team it up with kolhapuri sandal to complete the look. Simple, elegant and ready to go!
2. If you love experimenting, this one’s for you – pair a straight long kurta with denim shorts.
3. If you are not going the traditional way, denim shorts is the best thing to grab. Team them up with a white tee or t-shirt and for something different add a colourful cape!
4. For a more easy and carefree look, go for an oversized tee paired with jeans.
Hairstyle Ideas –
1. A side braided fish tail.
2. Half up bun. Oh! You can see them everywhere.
3. Again, if you love experimenting go for two french braids. The bohemian vibes this hairstyle gives. 😍
4. Two buns up if you’re going for something modern and not traditional.
5. Messy bun, no doubt is a saviour for every occasion.
6. And if you want to leave your hairs open try experimenting with a stole or a bandana. You can also try a Rajasthani pagadi with a nose ring to slay the look.
1. Put double layer of coconut oil all over your body and most importantly your hair. The oil acts as a protector and do not let the color stay nor lets it penetrate into the skin.
2. Use moisturiser which is highly hydrated and have spf because you’re going to be out in sun all day. And the layer of moisturiser will protect you from chemicals that colours are made of.
3. Instead of lipstick try to go for lip balms. Apply a thick layer of balm on your lips and don’t forget to carry it with you.
4. How much we hate when the color refuses to go away from the nails and no amount of nail colour remover can remove it. So, take out the darkest nail colour that you have and apply them on your nails.
Pro-styling Tips –
1. Wear sunglasses – go for a classic aviators or the most awesome sunnies that you own. Also wearing sunglasses will not only make your outfit better but will protect your eyes from the harsh chemicals of the colors.
2. Holi is probably the only day you can show off your flip-flops (with a ‘good grip’ so that you don’t slip) in public. Avoid wearing heels if you love them a little too much to save them from getting coloured.
3. Don’t wear any thin material clothes, because that can make you feel uncomfortable once you are all wet.
4. Make sure to cover your body as much as you can so that you will be less tinted.
5. Carry a small sling bag to keep your phones and other important things safe.
So that is all you can do to look your best and stay safe. Until then have fun and look your best. Happy Holi to all!
Much love! 💋
