makar sakranti


Fashion knows no weather! Here are a few ideas for the upcoming January festivities.

Every year, 13th of January brings with it the excitement of the Lohri with bonfire, songs, mouthfuls of gajak and rewaris. It is followed by the festival that celebrates the solar cycle, Makar Sankranti. This winters, don’t let the cold be an excuse to run away from fashion.

Here are a few outfit ideas to have glamorous and fun filled festivities:

  1. Patiala Suit

Nothing speaks finer Punjabi than a gorgeous Patiala salwar. Ranging from heavy work to solid statements, there are so many varieties to choose from. Complete your look with a beautiful phulkari dupatta, juttis, and a long braid to add a more traditional flair.

  1. Kurta and Palazzo

It’s a simple look, but it looks chic and is very comfortable. Complete the look with a shawl or a phulkari dupatta, and some statement earrings.  Add a bindi for a more desi and complete look. Dhoti pants are the new rage. For a little deviation from the palazzos, you can try them for a more daring look.

  1. Swivel with the Sharara and Gharara

They’ve been in fashion for a long time now and they are still a charmer. It’s better to opt for a dark colour for the night time as opposed to the pastel hues for the daytime. Choose wisely, and live this royal look. Opt for an impressive eye makeup to make it an ethereal combination.

  1. The Bohemian festive

We all from time to time have the surge to go ahead and do something creative with our outfits. Mix and match! It’s the perfect way to ensure there is no monotony in your outfits and that you can create as many outfits as possible. Indo-western is a popular look.  A solid black maxi skirt with a heavy work kurta or formal pants with desi kurtis are an eye catcher. Keep in mind that simplicity is the key. Do not get over-dressy.

  1. Accessorize

Accessorize what suits your outfit the best. If you desire to keep it traditional, then stick to jhumkas, bracelets and beautfil anklets to complete the look. Style your hair open and add a maang tikka to it or simply tie them up in a French braid. To add a more modern effect, you can incorporate choker, bohemian necklaces or even stud earrings to your outfit. A nose pin is also a stylish must!

Hence we wish you a happy Lohri and Makar Sankranti and hope you enjoy the festivities to its finest!
