Holi Dressing Tips

What to wear this Holi: Some tips and tricks

It is time to play Holi and drown yourself in the ocean of colours on the most awaited festival of India. While you drench in the colours with your family and friends, it is essential that you dress in comfortable yet fashionable clothes so that you can enjoy the festive mood without worries. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you dress stylishly and comfortably for the fun to come.

Get inspired

If you prefer a comfortable dress then you can get inspired from the famous Deepika Padukone in “Balam Pichkari’ Holi song. Pick a slightly loose Tee in bright shades and pair it with hot pants. Colours of choice for your t-shirt may be yellow, orange or red. If you want to stand out and add a little twist, you can also go for a fitted t-shirt pairing it with funky pajamas or culottes. But make sure that you do not wear transparent and clingy clothes because they will stick to your body once you get wet and may call for unwanted attention.

The best fabric for Holi

Without doubt, the best fabric for this Holi is Cotton. Holi is late this year and cotton will keep you cool irrespective of how harsh the sun is. So, you can choose a comfortable cotton dress in vibrant colours. The dress will look pretty even if you get drenched. Do you remember Alia Bhatt’s Holi dress in ‘2 States’? You can wear a white sleeveless kurti with a multi-colour flared skirt or shorts. But if you want to save your skin from the colours, your best choice will be to wear a full-sleeves short kurta with linen pants or a full-sleeves long kurta with palazzos.

Best ethnic Indian wear

If you are in a mood to wear ethnic wear, you can follow the gorgeous Rekha in ‘Rang Barse’. This outfit is always in trend. You can wear a white colour chickankari long kurta with leggings and to add a twist to it, you can pair it up with a colorful bandhni print dupatta. Also, the Holi colours look best in white. A white kurti with comfortable jeans may also be a good option and it will make you look relaxed yet stylish.


You can sport a tie-dye duppata or a block print scarf with any of the above outfits. To make a fashion statement, you can also tie an ikat-print stole around your head and save your hair from the damage.

So don’t shy away, rather go out and get drenched in the colors of joy. A very happy Holi !!
