Save the date- the much-awaited sibling celebration is almost here! 11th August 2022 is the time to reconnect and strengthen a precious bond that has given you some of the best memories. Like every other festival, Raksha Bandhan brings in a fresh wave of excitement with the mandatory question popping up in your brain- What should I wear for the occasion?
Well, before the thought of choosing the best dress for the Raksha Bandhan celebration starts baffling you, let’s make this simple. It’s an occasion with rituals, a formal feel, and yet a light ambiance- quite a typical combination! And you’re supposed to be decked up but not over-dressed and feel comfy- for the celebrations could last a long time.
And if you’re the lucky brother (we sensed that grin on your face), it’s time to gear up and get the best gift for your dearest sister. Rakhi is the time to call it quits for sibling fights and a fail-proof opportunity to reconnect to your care-free, childhood selves.
Let old laughter turn up again, let the bond revive- go on and make it memorable with an extra-special Raksha Bandhan gift!
So here we step in to get you a hand-picked curation for Raksha Bandhan 2022-
The Classic Tale of Organza
An organza saree is a charmer at every age. Carrying modern zest with yesteryear charm, sarees crafted in organza sheers can also work as a precious token for your sister.
If you’re planning to spend the day in an organza saree, we’d suggest you take it easy with the blouse. A chic cotton blouse or a comfy crop top could make the ideal bodice for an apt Rakhi celebration look.
The Power of Reds
Red is one palette that will never disappoint you! While in perfect sync with cultural dress codes, red is a statement of glamor, a power-dressing choice for a day where you are on the front stage.
Red is a game-changer in any ensemble, but well, since the occasion is Raksha Bandhan- quite toned down than Indian weddings, we’d suggest opting for lesser formal or casual silhouettes like red Kurtis and fusion wear. While a plain red straight-cut Kurti could work as a beautiful present, a frock-style ethnic dress with print and embroidery accents can be an ideal festive wardrobe.
Trendy Fusion Stories
Embrace the fusion vibe in a setting that’s culturally oriented and amicably light. If you’re the one who loves trends, then a jacket suit is just right for the Rakhi day. Other fusion-wear styles to try out this season are ethnic gowns, peplum lehenga suits, and calf-length dresses.
Quick Glam with Pre-Stitched Sarees
Whether you’re looking for the perfect Rakhi/Raksha Bandhan dress or something unique to gift your sibling, we’d place a readymade saree as an option with style and functional benefits. Pre-stitched and pre-pleated, these modern versions of the saree have ladies drooling over their ease of carrying, convenient maintenance, and its mere novelty.
I have always been in awe of whites; what about you? Even celebrities have been drooling over the ethereal color for occasions all year round. If your wardrobe preferences call for elegance, then a white dress is perfect for you! Fusion Anarkalis, maxi Kurtis, and sheer sarees are styles to look for in shades of white like pearl and ivory- in tune with the occasion.
Versatile Dressing with Printed Suits
Printed suits with roomy bottoms like palazzo and lehenga can be your saviors if you’re planning to stay away from all the regular festive glitter. Invest in a chic printed salwar suit in your preferred silhouette and dress it up with eye-catching jewelry to meet the social presentation factor.
You can go by the classic look with a floral or bandhej suit or explore the quirky face of ethnicity with exotic & fun prints like chains and smileys. Polka dots are yet another detail to embrace as a ruling trend.
Beyond looking pretty and sending tokens of affection to your sibling, there is much to do on the auspicious day of Raksha Bandhan. The Rakhi-tying and tika ritual is an excellent opportunity to make beautiful memories with your siblings. We hope this blog helps you choose the perfect wardrobe and ideal gift for Rakhi 2022.
Have a delightful celebration!
