Dressing up for Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan celebrates the chaste bond between brother and sister. It is a special occasion where the emotional bond is celebrated by tying Rakhi — a holy thread on your brother’s wrist. This auspicious day, look different and special as you seek sisterly love and protection.  This is one of the deepest and noblest human emotion. Clothes for this occasion symbolize love, decency, and joy. So, ladies, this Raksha Bandhan pick from latest fashion in ethnic wear. Here are a few options for you to choose from.

Kurta sets


Break the monotony of kurta that it can only be paired with leggings. Kurtas of 2016 are blessed with trendiest designs that you can pair them with pants, palazzo, skirts and what not. You can pick long length kurta and pair with a cotton palazzo for getting simple and elegant looks for the day. Leave the times when you team kurta with churidars and salwar. Kurtas with embroidery, phulkari and prints are totally in trend. Pick from them today.



Talking about ethnic wear and not counting Anarkali in, well this is impossible. Anarkalis can be a decent choice for Raksha Bandhan this time. They have been ruling Indian fashion from past many years. Every year, Anarkalis come with a twist. This time, it is floral prints and fairy silhouette.

Jacket suits

Jacket Suits


Experience harmony in the culture.  The Indo-Western style of dressing is famous amongst the trend makers of Indian fashion. The suit sets are coming with a jacket over them. From long jackets (achkan) to short ones all are in trend. Jackets of raw silk, embroidery silk and ivory silk will look good this festival.

Border sarees


Move on with the times when sisters used to wear just glitters on your dress. Let your shimmery dresses and sarees take a back seat. This year try simple border sarees. They look simple and stunning. You can experiment with your blouse. Get them tailored in different patterns.
