The beginning of August rings in with a lot of pomp and show as it brings with itself a flood of festivities. And basically, a lot of festivals means a lot of new outfits that you'll have to come up with. We sincerely can feel the pain and hardship it requires to stand in front of your cupboards for long tiring minutes, even hours trying to come up with an outfit while you make your room an absolute mess in the process.

 

So, this Raksha Bandhan that kickstarts the festivities of 2019, have a happy and put together start by looking elegant and subtle without going over the top or bling laced with the help of this Rakhi Lookbook!

 

1. Stripe It Up

This season stripes have slowly crept in but have made a huge impact on the fashion market. It is a fashion print that basically looks good on everyone. Don't forget to match your stripes with stripes or basic color. You don't need to create a mess of your look by pairing stripes to another bold print. And always go for vertical stripes as they elongate your body and give you more height and shape as opposed to horizontal stripes that make you look broader. 

You could opt for stripes in pastel hues that look beautiful and are pleasing to the eyes in a matching set of crop top and skirt.

Or you could also go for bold stripes paired with a subtle companion that gives you an edgy and powerful look.

2. Go Heavy On Print

Matching a bold print to another bold print can be a bit of a daunting task and we may always opt-out of it. But this is the time to take a risk and try something new. Pair your prints with other prints, for example, Polka Dots with Stripes and see the magic it creates. Your outfit will automatically become bolder, more stylish and class apart. Prints make a huge impact as opposed to basic plain colors, and if double the print, then double the impact for sure!
