The Indian Independence Day is almost here and each year, and everybody
is set to celebrate the day with grandeur, pomp, show and magnificence. This
year will mark the 70th year of independent India and the
just feel that much more special! Are you looking to make an iconic fashion
statement adorning the tricolour on your outfit on this special day? Look no
further. Check out some of our ideas to go trendy the ‘desi’ way.
Tri-colour Saree – the zing thing!
Let us start with our
traditional saree. Pick any hand-woven saree in cotton, silk or khadi. All you
need to jazz up your saree is to take two dupattas in orange and green, fold
them up length-wise. Now pin these on
your saree pallu and that would simply leave a thin white strip in between. Add
an extra zing to your appearance with a blue pendant neck-piece. What you can
also do is take a long chain and simply string a blue bangle all through to
give an ‘Ashoka Chakra’ look. Pair this up with your colourful pallu and become
the cynosure of attraction all along the day. Also, check out designer sarees
if you prefer fusion wear.
Jazz up with the Drape
multi-colour bordered white saree with a saffron or green coloured blouse
definitely adds the oomph factor to celebrate Independence day. If you prefer neon green, you gotta sport a
neon green saree with contrast saffron colored blouse and team it up with
of Tri-Colour in Kurtis
This Independence day, you can shop for tunics in natural luxurious
Indian textiles such as khadi silk, silk, tussar silk, chanderi or cotton
silk. Picking summerish shades such as
sky blue, yellow, orange and red may look outlandish for the occasion. So, go ahead, and simply drape a tri-colored dupatta
or stole along with your tunic for others to envy your look.
Speck of Tradition in
Indo-Western Fusion Wear
Want to flaunt off in style with a blend of tradition and design? Why
not opt for a Ghagra-style skirt with a longish blouse or a dhoti pants and a
Kurta to stay stylish this Independence day?
Accessorize to exhibit a
show of Indian spirit
If you don’t want to
wear tri-colored clothes, that’s fine too. Pick accessories like bangles in the
colors of the Indian flag to add style to your kurta and to keep up with the
patriotic fervour. Or another option would be to choose a pair of traditional
earrings in the same color theme to go with your saree.
