With all the major Indian festivals almost over now, one would think that the Indians are done with their festivals for the year. Technically, it might be true, but what about the great Indian festive spirit? Does it need yet another Holi or Diwali to get a kick start? Well, truth be told, nothing can hamper that Indian festive spirit and to help continue that happy feeling, we are yet again approaching one of our festivals quite soon: Makar-Sankranti or Uttarayan! The first harvest festival of the year is almost a pan-India festival. It takes up various names like Pongal and Lohri, depending on the region it is celebrated in. Believed to be a time for peace and prosperity, this festival is also a time to which Indian women look forward to. Why? Because who doesn’t love yet another reason to get all out and about with one’s style and get dolled up? Well, to help our Indian fashionistas to figure out the best style for them, we are here today with our tips about what to wear this Sankranti. So let us get started without wasting any time!

Chanderi Kurti

Thinking of a way to create that chic yet royal look for this Sankranti? Worry not. Chanderi Silk kurtas and Kurtis are the answers to all your style dilemmas! Pair a Chanderi silk Kurti with a pair of complimenting bottom-wear and complete the look with heavy earrings and matching footwear. For a more bold look, one can try pairing their Chanderi Kurti with skirts that have thigh-high slits and long boots. Who knows, you might fall in love with the experimental look!

Ethnic dress

No matter whether the event is formal, relaxed, traditional or modern, a dress can always be worn and styled accordingly! So for this year’s Makar-Sankranti, one can try wearing a beautiful dress with ethnic motifs and prints. A long, tiered Kurti can be your ideal match if you’re looking for something feminine and traditional. Pair it up with matching footwear and go for your choice of make-up and accessories.

Our last tip is possibly our most ‘deep-rooted in tradition’ tip. For all our fashion enthusiasts who want to move forward in the fashion world with customs and fashion hand-in-hand, black is the color that you’d want to wear on Sankranti. For women, zari-work on a black outfit would be like a cherry on the top of a traditional cake! Apart from the obvious cultural beliefs, black will also help your clothes to absorb more sunlight and make up warmer. So it’s a winning situation anyway!
