The month of August is here to give us many reasons to celebrate, from Friendship's Day and Independence Day to Raksha Bandhan. This year, Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated on August 11, and to start the festivities with a bang, it is time to put your fashion foot forward and glam up in stunning ethnic wear for the occasion. Raksha Bandhan will be followed by Navratri and Diwali in the following months, and since we will have our calendars filled with numerous events, let's not forget to stock up our wardrobes. Let's make 2022's festivities a grand affair by taking style inspiration from Bollywood celebrities. Here are a few celebrity-inspired ethnic looks that we have bookmarked for you. Take a look!
Alia Bhatt's Kurta, Palazzo Set
Seen in deep shade of blue, Alia looked breath-taking in her recent kurta and palazzos, for the promotions of Darlings. The stunning outfit had a sheen to it and featured cape sleeves, a deep V neckline and pleat details below the bust line and had delicate floral prints in shades of white, yellow and pink. Isn't this a comfortable pick for rakhi?
Mrunal Thakur's Yellow Co-Ord Set
For the promotions of her upcoming movie Sitaramam, Mrunal Thakur wore a stunning co-ord set in yellow from the designer brand House of Kotwara. The sunshine outfit consisted of a crop top and wide leg pants, which the actor paired with a long ethnic jacket. The full-sleeved jacket featured delicate embroidery and beadwork throughout, making it simple yet chic for the upcoming festivities.
Kriti Sanon's Embroidered Jacket
Kriti Sanon's contemporary ethnic look got us literally drooling. Kriti wore a gorgeous red outfit from the clothing brand of Ritika Mirchandani consisting of a bralette-style blouse with stunning sharara pants. The outfit had intricate thread work and embellishments throughout. What added a dramatic edge to the outfit was the full-sleeved long jacket with power shoulders. Her choice of jewellery, studded choker and earrings too, is setting the right mood for the festival.
Ananya Panday's Deep Red Saree
What better way to celebrate Rakshabandhan than in a classic saree! You can even add a modern twist to the saree look, just like Ananya Panday for Liger promotions. Ananya's uber-stylish saree in deep red was from designer label Arpita Mehta. The rich organza and silk blended saree featured beaded borders and a ruffled hemline with its sheer fabric. Adding a modern twist to the drape, Ananya opted for a backless all-red bralette and oxidised jewellery to complement the look.
Kiara Advani's Summery Co-ord Set
If boho is your mood and you want to dress accordingly, Kiara Advani's look for Bhool Bhulaiiya 2 promotions can be your inspiration. To channel her boho chic vibes, the actor opted for a metallic crop top with beadwork and embellishments and teamed it with a pair of abstract printed palazzo pants. The backless crop top had a plunging neckline and tie-knot detail at the back while the palazzo pants showcased a warm colour palette. Kiara accessorised the outfit by opting for a bandana as the headgear in the same print as the palazzo pants. The outfit from designer label Arpita Mehta was everything you can ask for, this festive occasion.
Deepika Padukone's Breezy Kurta
Deepika Padukone recently wore a polka dot pink kurti which looked exceptional. Her kurti showcased long sleeves, a round neckline and intricate gold embroidery work. The actor teamed the kurta with a pair of beige flared pant-style salwar adorned with lace embroidery at the hemline. She also carried a matching pink dupatta with embellishments and gold patti borders. If simple, breezy outfits are your style, this one should definitely be added to your list.
