Rakhi outfit ideas inspired by the ethnic looks of Bollywood celebrities

Well, it’s that time of the year when it’s ringing festivities especially starting with Rakshabandhan just around the corner. Rakshabandhan is not just a day to celebrate the beautiful bond between siblings but also a day where the whole family dresses up and eats together. 

Like everyone else, we have also taken inspiration from Bollywood celebrities (and the world of Bollywood designer ethnic wear!) and curated a list of 7 outfit ideas to help you celebrate the festival in style with your siblings.  So if you also look towards Bollywood celebs for inspiration, take a look - 

Bollywood inspired Rakhi outfit ideas-

1. Pretty Pastels

Talking about pastels, you’ll often see Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone donning these soothing tones of blush pinks and mint greens. In fact, last year for Rakshabandhan they were spotted sporting these sugary tones emanating their charm and beauty.

So, this Rakshabandhan, you can also take cues from them and adorn a Chanderi Suit Set in pastel hues.

Crafted in Chanderi and hand block printed using a hand-carved teak woodblock,  our Chanderi suit is inspired by traditional motifs of flowers and is perfect to be worn on Rakshabandhan to exude a sartorial sense of style.

2. Sophisticated Silks 

Bollywood celebrities like Aishwarya Rai, Dia Mirza, and Kareena Kapoor Khan have been giving major silk goals at events with their straight-fit pants and kurtas. Mostly worn with chandbali or Kundan earrings, they radiate ethereal beauty in eternal silks. 

You can incorporate a Maheshwari Silk Suit Set in your festive wardrobe in bright red. Ideal for new brides and singles alike, our suit set has been delicately woven in Mercerised cotton and Chanderi yarns in Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh. Wear it this Rakshabandhan for a complete on-trend look!

3. Floral Saris 

Be it Anushka Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, or Sonam Kapoor, you’ll often see these Bollywood celebrities acing the flower power game in the six-yard drapes - and that too with a lot of grace!

This Rakshabandhan, to celebrate the bond of love with your siblings and family, you can style our floral sari handcrafted in Chanderi and accented with floral print.

So think no more, beg, borrow, or steal (from mom or aunt!) a sari and rock the look to ring in the festivities. Complete the look with silver jewelry and a pair of heels to give the outfit a structure.

4. Sunshine in Yellow

Cheerful, bright, and soothing - Yellow has the power to uplift any ensemble without any effort, and the tinsel town ladies tell us exactly how! While Alia Bhatt was seen in a monochrome yellow lehenga at a friend's revelry, Kajol is also often seen wearing saris in varied hues of yellow at different events. 

You can also make a statement in this color by opting for a handblock printed suit set with a touch of intricate Gotta-patti work. The gota patti thus makes it a perfect fit to wear for festivals like Rakshabandhan.

Crafted in pure cotton, our Indigo suit set could be a perfect addition to your everyday wardrobe - and when styled with silver jhumkas and a watch or bracelet and a ring, it could be perfect Rakshabandhan festive wear.

So, this Rakshabandhan you can style the skirt with a shirt for a more formal setting or a tank top to exude a more chill vibe. Complete the look with a pair of mojaris and a statement neckpiece and rock the Rakshabandhan outfit with panache.
