Hola everybody, I hope all of you are doing great!
Festivities is around the corner and like always I took out my white kurta with a bright neon duppatta as my Holi party outfit. No matter how much I loveeee white coloured outfits (particularly oversized shirts and classic kurtas) this time it looked utterly boring to me to wear on Holi. Just then, in the middle of my messed-up wardrobe I saw a dyed blue anarkali kurti, waiting to explode in Holi colors.
My passion for fashion and love for colours are almost synonymous. But it is not the only reason for my exponentially increasing love for Holi. I feel nothing depicts happiness better than a riot of vibrant colours in our outfit. Holi magically transforms our dull mundane world into a colourful paradise. People chasing each other with dry colours/gulal in their hands in the streets, fields, colouring one and all. It’s madness. And it’s really fun!! A time when we all get united to celebrate with each other irrespective of religion, class, caste, race and become friends in an instant even with complete strangers.
But every festival comes with the dilemma of what to wear… specially with the trend of holi parties. Gone are the days when we used to wear white kurta or white tee as our best bet on Holi. Now, with changing trends, colourful vibrant outfits look uber stylish with the theme of this festival.
Since Holi is the festival of colours, choose dresses in bright shades like neon green, orange, yellow, blue or scarlet. In case you opt for plain colours, add one colourful element like a pair of vibrant shoes/shrug or a sleeveless vest with your dress to add a pop of colour.
Take a cue from Bollywood – from Alia Bhatt in Badrinath ki Dulhaniya in her bright yellow outfit to Deepika wearing vibrant red top in epic Balampichkari song. And how can we forget Alia Bhatt in 2 states in a beautiful multi-coloured skirt!! It’s time we ditch the basic all white outfit with colourful ensembles.
I picked this outfit long ago from Aks on myntra – it is bright, colorful, casual and yet comfortable to move. This beautiful navy blue and green ombre dyed Anarkali kurta surely can make anyone a show stopper in a holi party. I love how the flowy flare of this kurta makes it so dreamy in style.

Pro Styling Tips
- Wear something that offers both comfort and freedom to move, without compromising on the style quotient. Like I chose this bright kurta with a huge flare.
- For a boho chic look, you can go for vibrant red/yellow sleevless tank tops with palazzo or printed bandhani shrugs/vest over jumpsuits too!
- And, if you really wish to stand out, I would suggest you to wear a rajasthani pagadi with a nose ring to slay the day!!
- Another great way to stand out from the crowd is to braid your hair with a colorful stole; a sure shot way to look uber cool!
