What To Wear On Raksha Bandhan
1. Slit kurta with a dhoti
Dhotis are no more a man’s outfit only. Women are taking over almost everything men possess even if it is their national attire. And why not, if it’s making them look so good. Dhoti pants and dhoti palazzo is what you need and team it up with not an ordinary but a slit kurta and you’re ready to rock.
Accessorizing your attire should ideally become your mantra as this is literally your rescuer when it comes to carrying your outfits. Accessories can make you look slimmer, taller, shorter, etc. and even ethnic if required. Accessorize your plain kurta with the antique, traditional or junk jewelry along with a bindi and, your outfit is complete.
3. Kurta with a skirt
Lolo is wearing a fully designed piece in the picture, but, if you look for bits and pieces in your closet and fetch out the closest match of skirt and dupatta for your kurta, you can flaunt your ethnic outfit just like she did. This is a ready-made trend these days anyway, but I’m here to help with a DIY and save your money at the same time.
4. Not so saree
Our national attire turns out to be the most obvious ethnic for us anyway. And just a bit of twist in the same is gonna give you an entirely different and contemporary look. In this particular one, instead of keeping your pallu at the back, you need to bring it in front like a scarf and team it up with a sleeveless long cape with it. All it takes is just one added step in your saree draping. For more ideas, check out this link.
5. Get a cape and fly
A casual outfit is not a suitable outfit for Raksha Bandhan but adding a shimmery cape along can definitely make it so. Sometimes, it’s good to go beyond monotony and try out something new and unique. Accessorize it with traditional danglers (if looking for a traditional look), tag a clutch bag along and voila!
6. Palazzo with a crop top
What to wear on Raksha Bandhan? Well, how about palazzos? They have become a part of our ethnic attire now, isn’t it? Just team it up with a bling top or a crop top and tag it along with a jacket or a dupatta with some jewelry.
Shararas are evergreen. Keeping one in your wardrobe will be a savior if you don’t have one already. Just make sure to keep a neutral color like golden, white, black, beige which will go with maximum shades if you’re thinking of not having a huge collection of shararas.
8. Slay in an ethnic jacket
The one that Karishma Kapoor is wearing is an elegant one for sure but you might not find the same or the most resembling one out there in the market. It’s not even necessary to find the same type of jacket anyway. The catch is the kind of work that’s done on the fabric should look ethnic. If you have one, great! Tag it along with a dress or a plain kurta and a legging. If you don’t, not to worry, there are still other options you can go with.
I hope this article is helpful to you guys and you don’t have to worry again about what to wear on Raksha Bandhan. I really wish you rock in your Rakhi outfit more than any of your friends around!
