Updated - March 5, 2023 6 min read

Colours, laughter, and the arrival of spring is what we picture when we hear the word Holi. But when it comes to the festival of colours, clothing is the one item we also consider. Since this awaited festival is all about comfort, movement and vibrancy.


We have created a very special list of the 15 Best Holi Outfits for Both Men and Women.


For Women

Classic Pure White Saree

There’s no denying that sarees are a woman’s best companion for Indian festivals. If you want to wear something breathable and lightweight, the classic pure white saree is the perfect choice for you. You can choose chiffon, georgette, satin or Chanderi, which are all famous for their comfortable yet playful material.

After all, what is a Holi celebration without a pure white look, right?

Kameez and Churidaar 

Ideal for a traditional look, this Kameez and Churidar suit gives you a skin-fit and evergreen look. This suit flatters all body types- from tall and lanky women to short and curvy ones. You can go with a plain or a richly embroidered Kameez and pair it with a simple cotton, Banarasi or Chikankari Churidar. Seal the look by wearing a chiffon dupatta and become Holi-ready.

Western Wear

Want to ditch the ethnic look and try something cool this time?

Don’t worry, we are glad to inform you that there is no particular dress code for Holi. You can simply rock a white top with denim or tie-dyed shirts which will give you the OH-SO-CHIC look without overdoing anything.

Kurta with printed Jackets

I mean, why should girls have all the fun? Men, It’s your time to shine extra by wearing a printed Jacket to grab all the eyeballs during the upcoming Holi season. Pick a jacket with a contrasting colour and prints, and style it with a brooch to give your plain kurta a regal taste.

All white 

Nothing screams ‘ I’m ready for Holi ’ more than all-white apparel. To achieve this fit, you can wear a white shirt with white pants or shorts. You can also elevate the outfit by flaunting a colourful scarf or bandana.

Cotton Kurta with Jeans

Comfort is non-negotiable for both genders, and what better than a Cotton Kurta to celebrate a bustling day with ease?
