So if you are still keen on keeping the tradition and wearing white, how about mixing it up with your favourite colour? 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 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. Make-up 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 waterproof make-up, especially 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. Its 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?

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 moisturiser 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 jewellery on Holi as it might get ruined. Instead, try going for the cheaper and yet funky jewellery 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.
