7 Celebrity-Inspired Outfits For Holi, 2017
With athleisure continuing to be among the top trending even this season, you can opt to wear your tracks and tanks to your holi parties. If you are bored like us living out of your tracks, then we say upgrade to something more cooler and comfortable like a lightly pleated denim jogger and pair it with a bright not so body hugging vest, just like Alia wore recently while promoting her Holi release, Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya.
Shorts and Shirt
Since Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani released, this has been our favorite Holi dress up protocol, courtesy Deepika’s look in Balam Pichkari. With celebs taking that quirk plunge we say elevate your basics to their more quirkier versions and wear it with your shirts loosely tucked in. Carefree and spot-on look.

If you feel like giving your shorts a slight variation, then we suggest you could use a hearty printed layering for a bit of that added fun element. Take a cue from Alia Bhatt’s Dear Zindagi look.
Separates in both their co-ordinated and complementing forms are a celebrity favorite. You can evolve them to make your Holi chic and starry.
Opt for a pair of bright color separates, to turn heads at the Holi party. Stick to bright and loud colors. Alia gives us some major inspiration here wearing a bright red and yellow Raw Mango separates.
For the more carefree dresser, we would highly recommend coordinated separates like the one Anushka wore most recently while promoting Phillauri. The polka dots print on denim fared high on chic quotient.
Short Handloom Kurta
Short kurtas paired with patialas have become like Holi staples. With the handloom fervor on, ditch the usual chicken and work kurtas in linens, handlooms and Indian textiles, this holi. For some added charm and sparkle you can opt to amp up your desi diaries with a long neckpiece. This look from Vidya Balan’s recent sighting can be duplicated for your holi party this year.
Bombers are hot this season and not wearing them will be a crime. A recent look from Kangana Ranaut’s, Rangoon promotional diaries can well be translated into your statement look for Holi this year. A white on white cropped denim and vest look was given an instant facelift with an edgy denim bomber jacket. We were all hearts for this one, and we hope you already have a denim bomber in your closet to whip up a head-turning look.
Off Shoulder With White Distressed Denims
Off-shoulders and cold-shoulders are still trending high on the fashion charts. Instead of whites, pair up tops in light pastel shades like pinks, blues, and lemons with one of your most distressed faded white denim to create a rock chic Holi look. Take a cue from Athiya Shetty’s casual street style.
Glam this basic look with a pair of sunnies with neon metallic tints and you are sure to grab spotlights. Take a cue from these crazy pink shades Parineeti recently sported on her Dubai vacation.
Bollywood seems to be getting back to flaunting beautifully printed sarees with flowing pallas. If you can handle a saree to perfection and are more of an audience in Holi parties, then we did recommend you opt to dress up in a light printed saree in pastel hues to your party this Holi.
