The festival of colours is merely a few days away and I am absolutely ecstatic, not only because Holi happens to be one of my favourite festivals, but it also marks the end of the wintery feels and welcomes to wonders that spring brings with it.
I cannot think of a more better festival to complement the chirpiness and the colourful atmosphere during this season, and to add to the festivities, why not be our quirkiest best? Here are a few fusion-wear pieces that you really ought to have in your wardrobe this time around!
- The Long Skirt:
The long skirt can never go out of trend come what may! Be it a beautifully western skirt with a wonderful silhouette, or a brilliantly embellished skirt with an amazing flare, there is literally no comparison of the grace that a long skirt lends to the wearer.
During the festival of Holi however, ditch the silhouetted long western skirt, and opt for the solid coloured skirt with the zari border or even an embellished skirt. The best part about such a skirt is that you can pair it with any kind of ethnic top-wear like a kurti or a long kurta with slits on the side. Super comfy and easy to move around in, skirts are perfect for this beautiful festival.
- Jacket It Up:
It goes without saying that if we are talking about the festival of colours, one or two of the said colours, in some way or the other, will make their way on your outfit! If you are someone who is conscious about the visibility of these colours, then a jacket is your best, and most stylish bet, without a doubt!
The combination of a long kurta with a long ethnic jacket can be a wonderful way for you to be at your fusion-best during the festive season. Pair this combo with a palazzo pant or a cool pair of churidar pants and you are sorted!
- Maxi Dresses:
Like long skirts, maxi dresses are another versatile element you can and should have in that wardrobe of yours. From western maxi dresses to the new and wonderfully designed ethnic maxi dresses that have now become a talk of the town.
The ethnic dresses now available in the market can be found in a variety of colours and designs and compliment everyone beautifully. Lending amazing grace to the wearer, this is something that should definitely be on our must buy list!
Shrugs are essentially a lighter and flouncier version of a jacket and you can wear them in varying lengths, be it in a shorter, cropper version or a longer, more flowing version. When not in use, or you do not feel like you need it any longer, then just take the shrug off and you are sorted!
- A classic suit:
Bling is always good when done in a classy and controlled manner. Bling during the festival of holi? Yay! There are plenty of indo-western suits that you can give a try to this Holi season without compensating on the comfort or the grace that a traditional suit offers you!
So what do you think guys? What is your favourite pick from the lot?
