Winter is a fabulous time for festivals and India's diverse culture is a great excuse to celebrate various occasions. Lohri is celebrated annually in January, and January 13 is the date for Lohri 2021, which also marks the end of the winter solstice. It is primarily celebrated among Sikhs and Hindus all across the northern belt with bonfires being burnt, folk songs being sung and traditional dishes being prepared for the occasion. Even though it is essentially a harvest festival, a newly married woman's first Lohri is extra special. It's an occasion to glam up in her best ethnic outfits and receive gifts and abundant blessings from family members. This Lohri should not be any different either. You've come to the right place because we're here to help you look your best in traditional attires. Here are some style tips for new brides to glam up this Lohri in fabulous ethnic styles.
Outfit Ideas To Ace Ethnic Fashion This Lohri
Experiment with colours, prints and textures to make your first Lohri a stylish one.
1. Velvet On Velvet Style
Velvet is a fabulous material to work around with during this time of the year. Not only does it make you look stylish but keeps you warm as well. The subdued sheen of the fabric gives off a very regal and sophisticated look that is perfect to make a fabulous first impression in your new house. Rich hues like maroon, turquoise and midnight blue are excellent options to throw in for some chic ethnic style. A velvet suit is a great pick if you wish to create stunning look with minimum effort.

2. Keep It Warm With A Shawl
We understand it is cold and the warmth from the bonfire is the only thing keeping you going but why compromise on the style quotient too, eh? Shawls are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in our winter wardrobe and what better excuse than this to flaunt it? Make the most of these heirloom pieces to create a fabulous look. Gorgeous pashmina shawls double up as dupattas for your suits or go Indo-Western with a shawl wrapped around as a cape to create a unique look.
3. Slay It With Silk
Even though silk is lightweight, it is incredibly warm, making it a good pick for this time of the year. Silk has a natural sheen which adds unprecedented elegance to any look. Add a heavy embroidered dupatta in a bright hue like a phulkari one for that colourblock look or pair it up with pretty polki jewellery to further accentuate your look. A silk Patiala salwar kameez is a great option for this occasion. Go the extra mile and add a parandhi to your hair.
4. Glam Up With Shararas
Shararas have been the trending outfit of the season and it is yet another occasion to flaunt your best one. Experiment with different traditional and contemporary sharara styles for the celebration. Colours like red, green, pink and yellow are auspicious for newlyweds to look dressy for the festival. Pair them up with gorgeous chunky jewellery and traditional or jazzy juttis.
5. Go The Traditional Route With A Saree
Is there ever a reason not to wear a saree? We believe sarees are always right. Even for Lohri, we believe you can turn heads in a stunning drape. Versatile in every way, wear it in a traditional avatar or go the fusion route by pairing it with a turtleneck sweater. Choose from Benarasi or raw silk sarees to look your stylish best in your own extraordinary way.
