Hey everyone! So you're back from the morning holi celebrations? And I hope your faces don't look painted for life! Well, I don't play colors, but definitely enjoy seeing others play from my terrace, while relishing the holi special meals at home. The gujiyas and the traditional lunch are my favorite.
PS : For my Indian readers, you don't need an introduction to the festival of colors but for my overseas visitors, Holi is one of the most fun festivals of India, celebrated globally where its a feast for everyone with gulaal, water balloons, lots of music, traditional Indian food and love! Apparently, holi is also celebrated for the mythological reasons symbolising the victory of good over evil, and the reaping of the first crop while welcoming spring. So yeah, the festival is all about peace and happiness!
Having said that, there are a lot of evening holi parties that I love attending, because they don't allow dry/wet colors and just play with flowers. And, I take dressing up for it very seriously. Fashion after all is distinctive and constant and one should never refrain from looking their best. Festivals are a great time to dress up extravagant and today, I'm here to share with you an ethnic wear look (in association with a brand called SAREEZ), which is both interesting and inspirational and you can don it tonight to celebrate the festival in style!

As India is a rich platform of numerous cultures, religions and languages; it also showcases diversity in the ethnic wear, and it has always been the most preferred choice of Indian women including myself as it is the reflection of our rich culture, capable enough to enhance the feminine appeal of the wearer, and for a festival like holi, there can be no room for boredom!
So, while scrolling through one of my frequently visited websites for Indian wear clothing - Sareez.com, I stumbled upon a beautiful set of Anarkali Kurti and Churidar with Dupatta! The fluorescent yellow color on the base with multiple other colors patterned stylishly on the chest in the front and back of the kurti makes it look even pretty! Anarkalis are an age old style and look graceful on all women, and accentuate the height of a petite person like myself! I absolutely love how the fabric layers are stitched and finished with the net on the top. The border of the kurti is a zari embroidery and appeared magnificent as well! the set also contains a solid yellow churidar with a net duppatta embroidered with the same pattern as on the kurti to match. To be honest, I don't really wear too may bright clothes but this suit looks quirky and an unapologetic mashup of colours!
Accessorising Indian wear for a minimalist like me becomes a task, but when you have a jewelry collection so fanciable, as from Vamira and Silvette, you cannot help but choose only the best to add on! I picked up an aesthetic gold choker with pink & green triangular colored stones studded on it, with a matching pair of sea green earrings, a handcuff for my left wrist and a bold stone ring to match the whole attire! For my footwear, I chose a pair of comfortable, multi colored ballerinas from Jolaa that looked perfectly stunning with the suit, matching the print on the kurti and dupatta! Lastly, I opted for an elegant party makeup with pink eye shadow, winged eyeliner, dense contouring and blush on the cheeks, with dark coral pink lips. And, I loved the dazzling hairstyle that my stylist gave me with a stretched braid, covering my head like a floral band!
So yes, that was the whole Holi party look for you pretty women. Go bright and loud this time. Choose color blocks and pick some head turning Anarkalis to rock the festival. Until next time, lots of love and best wishes. May you and your family have a mind blasting and an eco-friendly holi!
