Got a Lohri party to attend tomorrow, ladies? Here’s your quick guide to stand out in the festive crowd.
When in doubt, go traditional. But make sure to put your own fun spin to it. Pick your mom’s phulkari buys and use them in quirky ways to dress up for the night. Play with a lightweight bagh embroidered dupatta and use it as a multi-purpose drape. From wrap-around skirts to even a sarong-style dress, show them party people some colour might.
Raid your mother’s jewel box and have fun with a pair of traditional earrings. Even if you are wearing something understated, these will make up for the needed festive touch. From heavy-set polkis, to chunky silvers and multi-tiered jhumkas — you can bring these jewelled favourites back in fashion by styling them right. Take cue from our ladies, Aditi Rao Hydari and Esha Gupta (above).
We love Alia Bhatt’s love for braids, and all you need are a few beauty tutes online to learn how to spruce up your hair twisting techniques. The best part? Having fun with accessories. From jewelled sparklers to even their floral counterparts, you can make your braid game strong by just experimenting a little. You have till tomorrow to practice, so let’s get to it!
If you are bored of dressing up the same for Lohri every year, this one’s for you. Monochrome lovers, pick up white and gold tones and light up your festivities. Check out Jacqueline Fernandez giving us major old-school vibe with the white drape and oversized statement earrings. And of course, Sonam Kapoor’s gilded look (above). Skip the maang teeka if it’s too much for you.
OTT (over-the-top, if you will) is never fun. The season’s all about keeping it neutral and indulging in delicious peaches n’ cream. Whatever you might be wearing, keep your beauty look basic. Be inspired from Katrina Kaif’s understated makeup and pull off a glossy pout to add sheen. You could even go Sonakshi Sinha’s way and pair pastel lips with lashes on fleek!
