Earlier, August used to mark the beginning of colourful kites flying in the sky in the spirit of Independence Day in India. Now, it also means 'Freedom Sales' online and shopping for tricoloured Indian outfits for theme parties at work and at home.
Now, the big question is what to wear to these parties? Of course, you have to include orange, white and green in your independence day dress but how? How to wear the tricolours stylishly without looking like the Tiranga? Are there any special clothes for independence day? Don’t worry, we have some amazing independence day dress up ideas for you.
To put all your burning questions to rest, all you need are these two words - salwar suit. A salwar suit or salwar kameez will go perfectly well with the spirit of the national holiday and the celebration of our freedom struggle. Here you go:
Choose one of these 20 pretty salwar suits that we have hand picked for you in orange, white, green and blue and jazz up your look with tricoloured nails, earrings, and juttis for the win.
The first colour in our national flag is saffron, or what we call Kesari in Hindi, indicating the strength and courage of the country. If orange is your calling, check out these suits:
1. Palazzo, Please?
For an easy-breezy feel at work, trust a cotton palazzo suit set to keep you comfy and stylish all day long. And what’s better than this orange and blue printed set that takes care of two flag shades at once? Take your Independence Day outfit to the next level by styling this suit with green-toned earrings and a french manicure.
2. Handloom Bloom
This handwoven suit in saffron stands for everything Mahatam Gandhi stood for when he hailed the Swadeshi Movement in 1905. The bright orange kurta when paired with an olive green churidaar and multicolour dupatta, will leave you feeling particularly special on August 15. Complete the look with mojaris for a full-on desi feel.
3. From AM To PM
Back to back parties? No problem. The crisp off-white trousers in this suit set will sail you through work stylishly and the popping orange will be simply perfect for an informal gathering. Accessorise with a clutch and fine jewellery, and complete the look with a pair of heels.
4. Anarkali Style
Feeling particularly festive? This all-orange suit with lightly printed trousers and dupatta and blingy gotta-patti work on the kurta’s sleeves will be a hit at the party. We are loving the Anarkali silhouette on it just as much as as the wide tassels on the dupatta’s border. Glam up with a choker necklace and call it a day in style.
5. The 3-in-1
Orange, green and a touch of white in this designer suit make it an ideal Independence Day dress. The colours are not too vibrant, not too dull but a perfect balance that won’t make you look like the Tiranga. Style it with a pair of drop earrings and pucker up with a natural coral shade. We guarantee you maximum style at minimum effort, ladies.
The middle colour is white and it indicates peace and truth. This universal colour looks good on all skin tones and that’s why we have these to offer:
1. The Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Suit
We know for sure that the Bollywood buff in you is going to want a salwar suit for Independence Day just like this. This white kurta and palazzo set with a bright red dupatta in bandhej is not only similar to Kajol’s iconic look from the film but is also an elegant way to celebrate the day. Accessorise with jhumkas and juttis before you head out for the kite flying competition.
2. Silver Surprise
If the question is glitter, the answer is yes. Same goes for this white suit with silver gotta-patti detailing all over. When teamed with green-toned earrings and orange nail paint, your look for Independence Day will be unbeatably beautiful.
3. Feels Like Freedom
All that this white and orange suit is missing is a little bit of green. But don’t worry. Once you step out wearing this number, an envious green will be all around you. This pretty summer suit will be perfect for the occasion. You know it!
A monotone sharara set is a wardrobe-must for Indianwear lovers, and we have found just the one for you in pristine white. This pure cotton sharara with minimalist work in grey and a net dupatta will haunt your dreams if ignored. Do you want that kind of negativity on your conscience?
If you are looking for a new fashion investment, may we suggest this white suit with colourful placement embroidery? All you need to nail your Independence Day outfit is a pair of oxidised earrings, the really BIG ones, et voilà! From festivals to wedding functions, this white suit will have your back stylishly.
The last colour is dark green and shows the fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land. How about you ‘Go Green’ this year with one of these suits?
This dark green suit with a matching churidaar and dupatta is an excellent way to nail the monotone trend of 2019. A contrasting embroidery and net details on the sleeves and dupatta are all the suit needed to make your Independence Day look a hit at the party. Glam up with a red bindi and rouge lips.
2. Pretty In Pastel
Speaking of hot fashion trends, this suit checks the majority of the list when it comes to this season’s Indianwear craze. Firstly, it’s in sharara style.Secondly, it’s monotone and thirdly, it’s all pastel! Did you notice how every garment in the three-piece set has a different gold print on it? Accessorise with gold-toned jewellery and wear juttis to round up the look.
3. Anything But Basic
In my opinion, there’s nothing more ‘everyday elegance’ than plain suits with heavy dupattas. As they say, simplicity is a style statement in itself that speaks more with less. This cotton suit comes with deep back design, a gold print and taping on the dupatta, and oodles of panache. Put your Kohlapuris to good use with this gorgeous number.
4. Floral Glory
If you can’t handle proper salwar suits with dupattas for longer hours, may we suggest this palazzo and kurta set? The beautiful floral print in pink matching the taping on the kurta’s flared silhouette is an absolute head-turner. Accessorise with statement earrings, some bangles and pucker up in a nude shade of pink.
5. Anarkali Disco Chali
Make the best of this holiday with this dark green embroidered Anarkali suit and light up the house party with your style. The organza dupatta in popping magenta looks great with the dark tones of the suit. We love! Team up with oxidised jhumkas or a statement necklace for the ultimate desi feels.
Blue, precisely, navy-blue is in the centre of the white band as a 24-spoke wheel, the Ashoka Chakra, depicting the Dharmachakra. The colour represents the colour of the sky and ocean--the universal truth. Embrace it with one of these suits for the occasion:
If you are a college girl looking for the perfect suit for an Independence Day party with friends, this blue and white printed suit will be the ideal choice. The cottony soft material will make you feel at ease all day while you look your stylish best. Don’t forget your earrings, ladies.
This suit is the best way to represent the white and the blue in our flag, and you know it. It’s so graceful that even your mom would want to borrow it! We suggest you style it with some silver jewellery such as drop earrings and metal bangles. Dressing up for Independence Day doesn’t get better than this.
3. Brocade FTW
Here’s a suit that will take you from Independence Day celebrations to Diwali parties to wedding functions effortlessly. The smart kurta and trousers combination, when paired with a blue brocade dupatta, is establishing the ultimate work to werk fashion goals. Put a micro-dot gold bindi on your forehead and ditch accessories so your suit can shine like it’s supposed to.
4. In Angrakha Style
I am a big fan of angrakha style kurtas and suits. They work on all body types and are high on glam, especially this one in solid navy-blue with gold print on the sides. The flattering neckline and super-flowy silhouette are oh-so-chic. Skip wearing a necklace and let a pair of dome-shaped jhumkas take care of your party look.
5. Indian Formals At Its Best
Party or no party, you don’t have to think twice about wearing this navy-blue salwar suit to work. And what better than Independence Day to debut your new purchase, am I right? Pair it with white flats, a pair of jhumkas and a statement ring to complete the look. Trust us, people won’t stop asking where you bought this from!
Happy Independence Day! It’s time to suit up in style, ladies.
