Being Indians, we have always loved to dress up grand of any occasion we go, but when it’s comes to dressing up for holi, a whole new approach is the need of the hour. With just one more day to go it’s high time to get enlightened on what to wear on this festival of colours. The foremost thing to consider is where you are going on this holi, is it to the full-time fun filled holi celebration with colours or to the evening parties or the houses of the relatives. Here let’s see about the most awaited celebration of colour powders and waters.
The colourful adventure
To start with the fundamentals apply olive, mustard or coconut oil on your skin and hair, and make sure that this doesn’t mean get soaked with oil. This will prevent colour from seeping through and make it a lot easier to get rid of it later as well. Now pick up a light coloured dress, preferably white and make sure is a perfect fit shirt or t-shirt and not so tight or not so loose. If you don’t have a white one, you can choose wear light shades of green, yellow, blue and pink. You should choose for light colours as the celebration is about colours and they should be visible, in dark coloured outfits colours are not visible enough to prove your celebration.
It’s always better to wear a full-sleeve t-shirt or shirt so have your skin safe from the chemicals in the colour powders that could affect it. The selection of dress can be old, but not worn out, since a worn out dress can put you in awkward situations when you are having fun running, playing and splashing colours. If you feel your hair is too sensitive of the colours that will be splashed at you please remember to wear a cap or cover your hair with a light coloured scarf. Wearing a scarf can make you look trendy and at the same time have your hair in safe zone. For the selection of pants an old fitting jean will do good.It’s always better to go with cotton outfits rather than clothes made of other fabrics.
Accessories for holi
Make sure you keep your expensive watches, branded sunglasses and designer accessories like handbags, belts and shoes at home. Since you aren't going to manage to keep them safe or dry, please avoid carrying phones and other gadgets and gizmos. The same will go for expensive jewellery. The only accessory that’s advisable to wear is a normal chappal, have in mind to wear normal rubber chappals or the Hawaii or your flip-flops, these will help you enjoy the whole celebration aiding you move free. Strictly say no to leather slippers. That’s it folks, you are all ready for the exuberant celebration of a lifetime. Spread the colours of life into every heart in this holi festival.
