Raksha Bandhan is one of my favourite festivals and very close to my heart. It reflects the love between siblings and makes the bond of love more strong. I love the get together with all my siblings, cousins and even my parent’s siblings also join us. In our busy schedule, it is rare to have such a beautiful get-together, so this is the only festival when my father’s sisters also join us, which makes everyone feel so special.  So a single thread of love which is called RAKHI brings a bundle of joy and love altogether and ties a beautiful relation between a brother and sister for a lifetime.

So when it comes to the most famous festival of India, how we can forget about the outfit of the day. As the festival is very special for everyone so the look of Raksha Bandhan also has to be very very special. I wanna give some trendy outfit ideas for this beautiful festival.

Ethnic & western combo:  This look is perfect when you are running short of time or you do not have time to purchase anything. In this look, you can use any kind of skirt, western or ethnic and match this with a pretty simple plain white shirt, or you can take any of your favourite plains which could match with the skirt. And the final part of this look is an elegant neck piece which will add glam to your overall look and will make this look wonderful. And yes, you can either keep the shirt inside or if your body is absolutely toned, you can tie a knot in the shirt to look more trendy.





Kurta with shrug:  This is really a good idea that you can use a kurta in so many ways and it will always give you an amazing look. Believe me, I have tried this so many times. All you need is a simple elegant kurta, pair it with a white plazo or pant and then wear a  long shrug over this look, try to match the pattern and colour accordingly. Wear some silver jewellery over this look like you can wear a silver cocktail ring, silver chandbali and some silver bangles to give glam to your look.




A Saree with off-shoulder:  When you have nothing to wear than a simple saree will help you rescue this. Check your mom’s wardrobe and select an elegant saree and pair this with one of your off-shoulder tops and then see the magic of your look. You will be surprised when you will notice that how much you can do with a simple 6-meter yard long cloth i.e saree. Personally, I love this so very much.




Anarkali suit: When it comes to an Indian look, how we can forget Indian suits. Yes, you can wear a beautiful and minimal work Anarkali suit on this occasion, it would be better for you if the suit’s material is cotton so that you can carry this outfit for the whole day and you can make yourself comfortable. Do not wear heavy jewellery rather wear something elegant light weighted one.





Indo-western dress: Sometimes we can’t wear western all the time, so I always try indo-western, which gives a wonderful look too. There are many types of Indo-westerns available in the market or you can pair up some of your outfits to make them indo-western. One of my favourite summer outfits is the long cool dress or you can also call it a maxi dress and you can pair it up with a beautiful shrug or a pure dupatta.
