We are approaching the exciting and much-awaited festivities and there is tons of stuff we are looking forward to. The first one of those is Raksha Bandhan.
The festival of Rakhi is widely cherished in our country and celebrates a very special bond between siblings. To celebrate such a special sentiment, your choice of outfit for this day should also be very special.
Over the years, the trend of traditional attires has seen a massive change- we started with plain Kurtis and went to heavy floor-length suits, and then back to plain Kurtis and pants.
This shift has left a lot of women in a confused state about what would be the best Rakhi look for this year. Well, we have made it super easy for you.
Here is a list of Rakhi outfits to slay your festive look in every way:
1) Light Sarees
The one outfit that differentiates Indian women from everyone else- sarees. Saree is one of the most underrated outfits in the segment of traditional wear and yet, one of the most charming!
There are multiple reasons why sarees are an amazing option for Rakhi: they are light- so you can spare yourself from the hot and humid weather; they are always trendy, so you never have to worry that you are wearing outdated attire; and finally, there are so many ways to experiment with a saree, you can never get bored.
Drape it in different ways according to how big of a celebration Rakhi will be for you, and you are all set to go!
Another great thing about sarees? They are a perfect blend of elegance and style, so you can never go too extra or too dull with them.

2) A combination of Kurti – Palazzo
We are all doomed because of the current situation and amidst all the virtual celebrations, you are bound to lose the zeal to get dolled up for an occasion. But we always have alternative solutions, right?
Of course, there is no logic in wearing a heavy suit only to celebrate Rakhi at home, which is why you can opt for a simple yet appealing set of Kurti and palazzo. They are comfortable, flowy, and very apt for a cozy virtual get-together.
Just remember, for a small get-together, your focus should be on being comfortable in what you are wearing and this outfit will give you that comfort. Along with that, it also adds a hint of the traditional Indian attire that we all love!

3) Long skirts/ lehengas
Bringing back the 90s, long skirts are giving us serious nostalgia and a crazy fashion makeover. Skirts make it super easy to create a whole outfit by yourself- in the mood for a heavy look?
Wear a skirt with a shimmery blouse. In the mood for a very subtle and light look? Wear a skirt with a plain shirt, and you have your outfit ready according to your mood!
Skirts also give you the freedom to accessorize in a very playful manner, and women adore that don’t they?
This Rakhi, experiment with your look and go for a skirt to enjoy both a comfortable and chic look!
Oh and you don’t have to be stressed about purchasing a skirt, you can also go for a lehenga and pair it with a blouse/ shirt to create your look.
4) Maxi dresses
For all the girls who love being stylish but want to keep their Indian origin intact during the festival of Rakhi, Maxi dresses will be your best friend! The perfect mix of a dress and suit, maxi dresses create an illusion of wearing both an Indian and western outfit at the same time.
And yes, thanks to the flowy concept of maxi dresses, your Instagram and Snapchat pictures wearing this outfit will come out great!
Moreover, these dresses can be worn on a lot of different occasions because of the versatility that it brings.

5) Indo-western combinations
Our favorite fashion trend this year has been the combination of Indo-western dresses. However, we have tweaked this trend a bit to make it more relevant for all the virtual celebrations we are having.
Wear your Kurti with a pair of jeans and some accessories to go with – and you have a customized Indo-western look ready for yourself.
We promise you, this outfit will give you the chicest and the most modern Indian look!
While these are just some outfit options that we feel will make your overall look very festive, make sure that you choose dresses that are comfortable and not just visually appealing.
Opt for light fabrics and avoid fitted dresses as much as possible to get through this heatwave! And of course, regardless of what you wear, remember to have a great time with your siblings!
