- Solid Anarkali with Statement Dupatta
Anarkali never disappoints, no matter what the occasion is. For Rakshabandhan we’d suggest you go for a solid colour Anarkali and pair it up with an embellished or heavily printed dupatta.
- Indo-western for the win
Indo-western is like a go-to-option when nothing else strikes a chord. They look chic yet traditional, the perfect combination that never goes wrong.
- Ghagra/palazzos with a crop top
This gorgeous ensemble of either a skirt with a crop top or a flared palazzo with an embellished crop top looks super stylish on women of every age and size. The mix and match magic works the best with this styling. So go crazy, women!
- The Timeless Saree
The classic saree is timeless. No matter the occasion is formal or casual, traditional or western, the saree always fits in.
- Saree with a Twist
Well, if you wore a saree on the last occasion and don’t wanna redo the similar look, you can try some contemporary drapes with pants and skirts.
- Coords with a contrasting Jacket
Coords are back in vogue. You can jazz up your coord ensemble by pairing it up with a contrasting jacket or a cap. Feel free to go a little over the top with the jacket if the outfit is subtle.
- Slay in a Sharara
Young girls or mid-aged women, everybody can pull of shararas like red carpet celebrities. The elegance of sharara sets is unmatched. You can pair the pants with a crop top or a matching kurta, as you like.
