Style Old Clothes for Holi in a Jiffy!
The season of "colours” is here, to paint the town red. From "gulaal’s”, pichkaris and mithai’s, Holi is a season that marks the beginning of summer. While a lot of us might opt for white kurtas and tees to kick start the pool parties, a huge number of people will be rummaging through their wardrobe and pick out clothes from the "rags” to play holi in. Today, we bring to you 6 amazing tips on how to rock those clothes that your mom had intended to turn into a "pocha”!
1) Shirts all the way!
Take a cue from "Deepika Padukone” in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani! Any loose fitted shirt is an absolute yay! Knot it up or pair it with some shorts and you are ready to rock! Tip- To avoid scrubbing your arms later, opt for an old, "full-sleeved” shirt from your dad/boyfriends wardrobe!
2) For the Traditional Ones
Those opting to go simpler by ditching the silver and green colours that refuse to fade for a lifetime and instead opt for organic gulal’s, mithai’s and tika’s, take a cue from Sonam Kapoor’s character in Raanjhanaa. Simple cotton or chikankari salwar suits, with subtle pastel colours will save you from the summer heat! Style it with some cool braids to avoid getting the colour stuck on your scalp!
3) Tank Tops to the Rescue
Who said that tank tops only come in handy during exercising! This Holi, take a cue from your favourite stars, Kartik and Nushrat from Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety, who styled these tank tops with colourful shirts and accessories!
4) Dupattas for the Boys!
Dupattas are extremely useful for wiping colour out of your mouth, eyes, and nose. Use colourful tie and dye ones, or your mom’s/girlfriends old dupatta, to have a safe and fun Holi! Take a cue from the King of romance – "Shah Rukh Khan” himself!
5) Recycle an Old Blouse!
For all those of you, who are planning to go "full glam” for your "Holi Party”; we have an easy DIY to your rescue! Stick some sequins to your crop top/blouse with the help of fabric glue and pair it with an old skirt! Voila! You are ready to rock like Alia from Badrinath Ki Dulhania! Tip- You can also experiment with cuts and dyed patterns to add that extra oomph!
6) Layer your T-shirts!
To get ample protection from the colour stains, heat and dust; layer your clothes! Bring out that old t-shirt with holes in it and layer it with another loose shirt! Take a cue from Arjun Kapoor in 2 states, who absolutely rocked this look!
