1. Straight cut kurtas and palazzos: Make heads turn and shine away in straight cut kurtas and palazzo pants – a combination that talks of sophistication, elegance, grace and chic style. To complete the look, you can tie the hair into a sleek bun, and embellish with a chunky stone embellished hair pin. The makeup should be a little more than moderate- think of shimmery eyes and glossy lips for the night time party affair. Colorful dupattas and Phulkari bottoms would add more grace, but don’t forget to accentuate the look with heels in neutral shades and a tote or a clutch bag in nudes to hold.
2. Embellished salwaar kameezes and Punjabi suits: You can make a grand entrée at the lohri gathering in a chic and heavily embellished Punjabi suit or a wedding salwaar kameez. Heels are a must for the feet to flaunt the look, and the accessories you choose to wear should be chunky and heavy too. Since the bling factor on clothing and accessories would be high, apart from the eyes, we would look at minimal makeup for the cheeks and the lips. The hair should be messy and left wavy, with a flower on top of the right ear.3. Sensual churidar kameezes: Subtle and sensual, but if you want the bling factor to come through, choosing churidar kameezes with plenty of traditional paisley patterns and chumkis or sequences should be your aim. Wear heels or wedges with this look and drape your Phulkari dupatta accordingly, with statement neck pieces to flaunt.
4. Phulakri patialas all the way: Opt for bright and vibrant, sensual and heavy, colorful and bold, phulkari patiala’s with intricate embroidery necklines that run amok. Go for a sleek kurta on top and make sure the sleek cut suit patterns on the kalidar lines exudes a distinct phenomenon when the embers burn bright through the night in Phulkari patiala pants. You could also try the structured phulkari nehru jacket with loose dhoti pants to flaunt. Keep the makeup minimal with this look and shine those lips. The hair should be sleek and tied into an updo, with mojaris or heels for the feet to complete the look. Bohemian and beaded accessories work wonders!5. Anarkali at the lohri vibe: Make the party scene ooze hauteness wearing an anarkali this time. From mid-length chunky numbers to the empire waist and more, depending on your body type and shape, you can add more spunk and vibrancy to the festivities this evening.
