Holi Style Guide - Chikankari Edition

Rooted in Hindu Mythology, Holi celebrates the arrival of spring and commemorates the triumph of good over evil. The festival of Holi entails an exuberant sprinkling of coloured powder on friends and family, with each colour representing a different sentiment. While Holi is known to be the festival of colours, white is one colour that reigns not just the markets but also the hearts of people celebrating it. White is widely associated with peace, humanity and brotherhood and makes for a perfect colour to don on the festival that celebrates the victory of truth and goodness. 

Whether you’re deciding to stay indoors to avoid getting laden with colours or you’re exhilarated to go all-out, our in-house stylists have curated a list of chic and stylish Chikankari outfits that could accentuate your holi look this season. While you may already be scrolling through some kurtas, here’s a reminder for you in time that a touch of embroidery on a classic silhouette adds a playful and fun element. Our classic Chikankari Kurtas can be easily jazzed up with some jewellery to create an occasion-friendly ensemble. So, without further ado let’s check out some classy Chikankari outfit ideas to stand out among the crowd this Holi Festival:
