If you can’t think of what to wear when you step out to
play Holi, then don’t worry because our TV divas are here to help. This is what
Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Helly Shah, Shubhangi Atre and Sara Khan have to say
about dressing up for the festivals of colours.
There is just no end to the types of dresses you can wear at Holi- Kurtis, saari, jeans, tunic, shirts, there is just no limit to experimenting with looks on this day. So, if you are still keen on keeping the tradition and wearing white, how about mixing it up with your favourite colour? Almost every colour looks good with white, specially the bright ones like red, orange, blue, shocking pink. One of the most popular ones this year has been the combination of white and plum colour. Apart from that, floral dresses also create a different and yet beautiful look for Holi. Obviously considering the occasion, avoid dresses you can get caught up in or which are hard to manage and go for the one you will be most comfortable in.
The best hairstyle for this occasion is definitely the ponytail. But if you are daring enough, try combining it with a braid. Also remember to apply some moisturiser or other products available in the market to protect your hair. If you want to be extra careful about your hair, you can even find a scarf or 'bandanna' that goes well with your dress.
Though there is a widely held concept that there’s no need for make-up on Holi since it gets spoiled anyway, this is not true. Make-up is more important on this day than any other function as it will help protect your skin from the dangerous chemicals in the colours. So use water proof make-up, esspecially as a base and eye make-up, and don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your face and all visible body parts. Bold eyes will enhance your looks even after you have been covered in colours.
Don’t ever wear your precious or expensive jewellery on Holi as it might get ruined. Instead try going for the cheaper and yet funky jewellery available almost everywhere. If you are wearing a traditional dress, try some jhumkas as they seem to be made for the occasion and are available in so many eye catching designs and colours at very reasonable prices. For a western look you could go for bracelets, ear cuffs, rings or necklaces.
Totally avoid wearing heals and find some comfortable rubber fancy shoes. They can be in any style that you are comfortable in like slippers or sneakers as long as there isn’t a chance of slipping in them. If you are carrying a western look then obviously go for sneakers or pumps and for an eastern dress, go for slippers. But don’t forget to get the stylish one so that you look stylish.
