Here are some Bollywood divas who can be your style icon for the spring fest!
Lehenga Choli the Deepika way
Lehenga choli can be a an inconvenient option for all the mad holi fun, but if you are attending a holi that is more about dance and food and less about colour, Deepika’a white and maroon lehenga choli from Ram Leela is the best pick
White Patiala salwar for Aishwarya fans
Patiala salwar suits are graceful and comfy. Wear a white kameez with contrasting shades, of salwar or dupatta and you are good to go. You can look ethnic without compromising on your comfort just like Aishwarya did in Action Replay
Long shirts to be as chic as Alia
If you want something casual, easy going yet fashionable than Alia’ look from the movie 2 States is your style file. Pair a loose tank top of a light shade with a flowy printed skirt. Chic and smart!
All classy in white kurta, Rekha style
Nothing says Holi more than a classic white outfit. Just like Rekha Ji wore it in the legendary movie Silsila, for the legendary holi song, Rang Barse you can do it too. Admit it, the white salwar suit is the only ideal canvas for all the shades of Holi colors.
If these fashion ideas are not enough here are few new ones.
