There is a swift acceptance of a different colour palette which comprises of shades like peach, champagne pink, marsala, wine, aquamarine blue and green, coral, and pastel hues. Since the festivals run over a long period of time without any differentiation in day or night, one should opt for ensembles that are effortless, comfortable, yet chic.
Do not go overboard with the bling. A hint of defining embellishments <g data-gr-id="87">go</g> a long way to reflect the overall zest of the celebrations.
Macro florals have made a huge comeback and this is a great time to wear them with grace. Opt for a floral skirt and team it up with a flattering crop top. Experiment with bold colours at the bottom like vermillion red, but take the look a notch lower with a <g data-gr-id="102">pastel hued</g> crop top or blouse. Always keep a golden blouse handy that suits your body type and can be used at any time to complete the look. Experiment with a layered or dhoti style skirt that will factor in the element of comfort in your look.
Delicate embroideries, bold block prints, tie-dyed silhouettes, foil prints, golden shimmers and sequins, vibrant phulkari, luxurious brocades, are trends that one should experiment with. Choose ethnic wear staples that can <g data-gr-id="109">transit</g> easily from day to night without adding anything more than a piece of accessory.

Choose <g data-gr-id="117">anarkali</g> dresses crafted from cotton or cotton silk, adorned with block printed motifs to keep a balance.
