It is that time of the year when the Indian flag proudly flutters high up in the sky as the feeling of patriotism sweeps through the air. Since Independence Day is right around the corner, most of us tend to wear ethnic dresses to schools, colleges and at work.
A lot of us find it challenging to look comfortable and stylish while maintaining the dress code. So, if you’re struggling to put together a cool outfit for the occasion, here are some outfit ideas for both men and women, specifically curated to commemorate the day of freedom.
Styling Tips for Women
Culottes and Palazzos – The combination of kurtis with culottes or palazzos are a great way to spice up Indian attires. These versatile pieces of clothing can be easily paired with your favourite ethnic top. You can either opt for a tri-colour look by pairing a white kurta with green palazzos or culottes along with a saffron dupatta, or you can go for a top-to-toe white look and team it up with a tri-colour dupatta. Wear a set of hoop earrings and throw on a pair of Kolhapuri chappals with this casual-chic outfit and you are good to go!
Elegant Long Skirts- A simple short cotton kurti paired with a long ethnic skirt is a great way to look sophisticated and comfortable. And if you’re not in the mood for a kurti, you can team up a beautiful printed long skirt with an ethnic crop top. Add on some shiny bangles, danglers and flat sandals and voila! Ready to go!
Six Yards Long Elegance: Saree- We often neglect sarees as draping them can seem like quite the task. But this is a classic outfit that flatters every Indian woman, regardless of her body type. Wearing a simple, saree with an embroidered blouse is a great way to look both simple and royal at the same time. To take the sophistication of the look a notch higher, just add some chunky silver jhumkis and bangles.
Styling Tips for Men
Men often complain about not having enough outfit combinations to wear during festivities. But with some planning, you can put together a look that is dapper and theme-oriented –
The Classic Nehru Jacket – For a day, ditch the denim and go for the classic with this garment. Team up a pair of all white solid or embroidered Pathanis with a green or orange Nehru jacket. Slip on some Kolhapuri sandals or juttis, and you’re ready to join the traditional celebration! And if you’re willing to let go of all white and experiment a little with your look, pair your saffron or green Pathani suit with a white Nehru jacket.
A Kurta Pyajama Never Goes Out of Style – It is a symbol of ethnicity and what better way to celebrate the day of freedom than with a traditional sherwani? A classic sherwani with a tri-colour scarf and some ethnic sandals are the simple ingredients for a stylish statement this Independence Day!
These ensemble combinations are quick and easy to put together. Whatever you choose to wear, Indian outfits have their charm, just make sure that you wear what makes you feel comfortable.
