Coco Chanel once said, “The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you!”
The colour White as a canvas gives room to an array of creative and colourful ideas. While Holi is a festival of colours and traditionally, you would see people wearing white to celebrate the occasion. As a symbol of peace, the colour white embraces each colour. Thus, giving the festival a perfect canvas to celebrate creativity at its best.
And with the festival of colours right around the corner, we have a talented set of designer labels including Ridhi Mehra, Vedika M, Kunal Anil Tanna, Sukriti & Aakriti, BARI India and Gulabo Jaipur who have creatively used white as a canvas to give your Holi celebration a colourful expression.
So, here’s a li’l something white for a day filled with bright and beautiful colours!
Make a statement by pairing BARI India’s swatch and splash hand-block printed kurta with a pair of white palazzo pants. “The kurta will not only give an ethnic touch to the whole look but will also allow women the freedom to flaunt their stylish persona with confidence,” says Nitisha Jain, founder of BARI India.
Comfort plays a crucial part when you decide what you are going to wear for Holi. And Gulabo Jaipur has just the perfect look to celebrate the festival of colours. This glorious white kalidar is not just simple and comfortable but it’s also soft on the skin. And with great white outfits, comes great responsibilities. “With this garment, I would advise women to keep it simple and minimal. Oil your hair, tie it in a bun or a loose pony. You could opt to wear tiny earrings, so you don’t lose them while playing Holi,” suggests fashion designer Saloni Panwar of Gulabo Jaipur.
KUNAL ANIL TANNA:
So, why should girls have all the fun, right? This minimalistic white pintuck kurta with a hint of bling by Kunal Anil Tanna will add festive cheer and a dash of colour to your intimate Holi celebrations. “It’s important to preferably have a fabric that dries off easily. Keeping it simple is crucial as you don’t want to keep adjusting instead of enjoying the festivities,” shares fashion designer Kunal Tanna of label Kunal Anil Tanna.
If you are invited for a Holi party where you would play with flowers instead of colours, then this elegant Anarkali in sublime ivory should be your OOTD. “Aliza, a bejewelled silhouette paired with a net dupatta makes for a perfect festive outfit,” says fashion designer Ridhi Mehra.

To add a dash of vibrancy to your festivities, you can style Vedika M’s plain white long sleeves elasticated top with a pair of hand brush painted jogger pants in shades of sea green and pink. “You can accessorise the white outfit with chunky earrings, colourful bangles and complete the look with a pair of sunglasses to have a trendy indo-western outfit,” says fashion designer Vedika M.
