Wearing this lovely Jamdani or Dhakaai saree from Kolkata ðŸ˜ÂÂÂÂ Jamdani (Bengali: à¦œà¦¾à¦®à¦¦à¦¾à¦¨à¦¿) is a fine muslin textile of Bengal, produced for centuries in South Rupshi of Narayanganj district in Bangladesh. Jamdani was originally known as Dhakai named after the city of Dhaka, one of many ancient textile weaving centers in Bengal region.

3. Boho For the Go
Wear a jumpsuit with vibrant ethnic prints or embroidery. You’ll get showered with compliments for this bohemian yet oh-so-Indian fashion trend. To make the look more apt for the occasion, stick to shades of coral, orange or green.
4. Ethnic With a Quirky Twist
If going completely ethnic is nothing like you, here’s your pick for the day. Your best bet to be your ‘extra’ self for the office event will be to go for a feminine kurta with flared palazzos and top it off with a heavy dupatta.

Republic day holidays are often spent tucked inside a blanket, watching the parade on TV and a movie to follow it. If you are one of those who love getting to the streets exploring the patriotic sentiments, fashion should be high on your agenda.
