Holi, the most colour­ful event of the year which brings about a joy and hap­pi­ness of its own, is here. If you can't think of any­thing else when it comes to holi out­fits, there is al­ways the op­tion of go­ing with the tra­di­tional look, a white dress. But why go with the same old stuff when there is so much more to ex­plore and try out? If not a com­plete guide, shar­ing of idea­son how to dress up for holi fes­ti­val, what out­fits to wear, brings about no harm for any­one.

Out­fit Ideas for Holi

There is just no end to the types of dresses you can wear at Holi, Kur­tis, Saari, Jeans, Tu­nic, Shirts, etc. as there is just no such limit to ex­per­i­ment­ing with looks on this day. So if you are still keen on keep­ing the tra­di­tion and wear­ing white, how about mix­ing it up with your favourite­colour? Al­most ev­ery colour looks good with white, es­pe­cially the bright ones like red, orange, blue, shock­ing pink. One of the most pop­u­lar ones this year, I think, has been the com­bi­na­tion of white and plum colour. Apart from that, flo­ral dresses also cre­ate a dif­fer­ent and yet beau­ti­ful look for Holi. Ob­vi­ously con­sid­er­ing the oc­ca­sion, avoid dresses you can get caught up in or which are hard to man­age and go for the one you will be most com­fort­able in.

Per­fect Footwear for Holi

To­tally avoid wear­ing heals and find some com­fort­able rub­ber shoes. The shoes can be in any style that you are com­fort­able in like slip­pers or sneak­ers as long as there isn't a chance of slip­ping in them. If you are car­ry­ing a west­ern look then ob­vi­ously go for sneak­ers or pumps and for an east­ern dress, go for slip­pers.

Holi Make-up Idea

Though there is a widely held con­cept that there's no need for make-up on Holi since it gets spoiled any­way, this is not true. Makeup is more im­por­tant on this day than any other func­tion as it will help pro­tect your skin from the dan­ger­ous chem­i­cals in the colours. So use wa­ter proof make-up, spe­cially as a base and eye make-up, and don't for­get to ap­ply sun­screen on your face and all vis­i­ble body parts. Bold eyes will en­hance your looks even af­ter you have been cov­ered in colours. It's also the per­fect oc­ca­sion to go for nail art, or if you don't have time for that, how about wear­ing a dif­fer­ent coloured nail colour on each nail for a change?

Cute Hair­style for Holi

The best hair­style for this oc­ca­sion is def­i­nitely the pony­tail. But if you are dar­ing enough, try com­bin­ing it with a braid. Also re­mem­ber to ap­ply some mois­tur­izer or other prod­ucts avail­able in the mar­ket to pro­tect your hair. If you want to be ex­tra care­ful about your hair, you can even find a scarf or ban­danna that goes with your dress.

Ac­ces­sories to Wear on Holi

Don't ever wear your pre­cious or ex­pen­sive jew­elry on Holi as it might get ru­ined. In­stead try go­ing for the cheaper and yet funky jewel­ery avail­able al­most ev­ery­where. If you are wear­ing a tra­di­tional dress, try some Jhumkas as they seem to be made for the oc­ca­sion and are avail­able in so many eye catch­ing de­signs and colours. For a west­ern look you could go for bracelets, ear cuffs, rings or neck­laces.
