This day being a culturally significant one, women take additional efforts for selecting their festive wardrobe. The dress code followed for this day usually revolves around ethnic wear like sarees, salwar suits, lehenga cholis and these days, even tunics and other fusion wear silhouettes. Keeping the current trends in mind, we have some smart outfit ideas for the upcoming festival of Raksha Bandhan. 


Try a breezy Saree

Coming to the attire for Rakshabandhan, ensure that it is something Indian in spirit and essence. Also, keep things very feminine and demure. Look and feel like a devoted sister!


You may not be considering this, but Saree is a very nice ensemble to wear on Rakhi. Many of us generally don’t get to wear this wonder outfit, so why leave a chance – when we get one.


So, go ahead, and pick a fluid, breezy and elegant saree. 

Or, go the Indo-Western way

If saree is not your cup of tea, you can channel the trendiest trend by donning a super-stylish Indo-Western attire for Rakhi.


Look around – there are tons of choices in this contemporary trend. You will not have to scout much to find the perfect one for you! These ensembles give a youthful appearance and can be channeled by girls and women alike. Smart Indo-Western gowns, floor-length suit ensembles, lehenga suits, palazzo suits and trousers-suits – all come under this category.


Floral Lehenga Choli

The brightness surrounding this delightful occasion should reflect in your wardrobe too! How about donning a colourful floral lehenga choli to match the cheerful mood of the occasion? Lighter hues like neutrals and pastels can be picked since the ritual of tying ‘Rakhi’ is usually celebrated during daytime. 


Elegant Anarkali Suits

I don’t think we women will ever be able to get over Anarkali suits. The grandness and majestic appeal of this silhouette is definitely drool-worthy and that means that Anarkali suits are here to stay for a long time! 


These days, floor-length Anarkali and Abaya style suits are quite in vogue. The Indian version of western style gowns, these silhouettes radiate an aura of elegance and are an absolute ‘Yes’ for a semi-formal or formal celebration of Raksha Bandhan. 


Look like a true-blue chic desi diva

Not happy with any of the going-on styles? Well, why not create one of your own! Or, buy an ensemble that fits your dreams – just like you want it to.


Whatever you wear, pair it all with some really interesting, chic Indian jewelry and accessories to polish your whole look. Jhumka are great – and they are available in all sizes, big or small.
