We all know Holi is a festival that brings color back into our lives after the gloomy winters.

Since Holi is here, so too is the need for style inspiration. To help you choose outfits and style ideas, here are some cool tips and tricks for dressing in style and comfort.
Style Inspo for Holi:
For those of you who like to dress comfortably, why not take inspiration from the gorgeous Deepika Padukone?
What should you do then?
Transform yourself into a hottie by sporting a vibrant t-shirt with a pair of warm pants, like she did in the song “Balam Pichkari”.
Want to add a little touch to that Holi festival dress code?
If you think Holi isn’t the time to flaunt your long legs, pair a t-shirt with comfy pajamas. This will help protect your skin from the onslaught of stubborn colors. You’ll thank us for this styling tip that will help you reduce your bathroom’s difficulty removing all those color stains.
Words of wisdom for you –
Avoid wearing sheer, sticky clothes on Holi as you are sure to get wet and feel uncomfortable.
Best fabric for Holi:
Without a doubt, it is cotton. It keeps you cool while enjoying the outdoor fun that the festival brings. For Holi, you can dress up in a vibrant cotton dress that is rich in hues and prints to add a touch of liveliness to your festive celebrations. Alia Bhatt’s Holi outfit in “ 2 States ” is a perfect example of flaunting the Indo-Western look or you can don a vibrant skirt with flares and still look dazzling. But if you want to minimize the damage to your skin from chemicals and tanning, then without hesitation, pair linen pants with a short kurta or a palace with a long kurta. Make sure you choose a top with full sleeves.
Chikankari and Holi?
Ah, that makes an awesome statement. A white chikan kurti when paired with jeans is fabulous and so perfect for college Holi functions, right? Ask Dia Mirza.
Think I’m going to miss a Patiala Salwar costume for the Holi festival dress code? Certainly not.
And then there is a colorful tank top and an ethnic skirt. A trendy Holi outfit with a touch of tradition. In doing so, accessorize this dress with colorful bangles and funky jewelry.
Ethnic clothing for Holi:
If ethnic wear is your calling for festive occasions, then go Bollywood style by opting for an all white Rekha ensemble in the song “Rang Barse”. It’s an evergreen trend that will make sure you look your best!
And what is that? Wear a crisp white chikankari kurta with the basic leggings. Want even more twist? Pair the white kurta and leggings with a colorful bandhani print dupatta.
White outfits work as the perfect canvas for painting the city red on Holi with your friends and family. You can even go for a white kurti and pair it with jeggings.
Do you want to get ahead of the game?
You can simply add a colorful dupatta or tie dye scarf to add that pop of color to your choice of classic wardrobe and use it to protect your luscious locks as well.
Accessories for Holi:
Holi fashion demands a twist. You have to be messy with the colors and the water at the same time. And the accessories to wear on Holi have a lot going on to help you nail the look. Here’s how:
Caps and bandanas: Take your family and friends by surprise when you wear the best headwear (a stylish cap or a printed bandana) with your outfit this Holi. It is an effective way to style your outfit. Plus, you end up protecting your hair as well.
Sun glasses: You can’t go color blind on Holi, but you can definitely add that extra glamor to your outfit by wearing sunglasses. Look a star at your Holi party wearing one of these awesome sunglasses. Going for classic aviators will definitely help you steal the show. Plus, when you wear sunglasses while playing with color on Holi, it ensures that your eyes are protected from harsh chemicals.
Flip flops: For the fun festival, are you going to wear one of these fancy sandals or pumps? Do not do that. Holi is that festival which gives you the chance to wear and show off your shoes for Holi. So do it while wearing flip flops in public. Just pair them with your funky clothes and complete your Holi outfit. Other shoe options include sneakers, floats, ballet flats, moccasins, or simple slippers.
Denim shorts: Suppose you don’t want to go the traditional route this Holi. Be a smartie wearing denim shorts and a cute white top or t-shirt. Complete this look by wearing a bandana and flip flops.
Hairstyle for Holi:
Protect and protect!
It will always be your hair mantra on the occasion of Holi. To do this, moisturize your hair with coconut oil beforehand. Bring out the hairdresser in you and go for a braided bun or a double French braid tied into a high ponytail. It is the best and sleekest way to save your hair from the onslaught of colors and chemicals.
Nail Art for Holi:
To protect your nails from Holi colors, paint them in bright shades. It could be bold, contrasting colors or a Holi-inspired nail art design. Add a pop of color to your nails by using vibrant shades rather than letting chemical colors take their toll on your manicure.
Now that I’ve shown you some great possibilities for Holi style outfits and ideas, feel free to follow them. Don’t be shy, go out and soak in the colors of joy that only come once a year. Happy Holi to all your readers and family members!
