The lockdown is almost over, and we all will go out for Republic day celebrations. If you are still planning out on your outfits, then check these pretty Republic Day looks by stylist Archana Ranjan, and make your day style-packed.
Republic Day is extremely special for every Indian. It’s a day filled with emotions, sentiments, honour, and pride. Since we finally have a vaccine for COVID, this Republic day is going to be even more celebratory. If you are still thinking about what to wear, then check these Republic day looks by Archana Ranjan, and show love for your motherland with a knack of style!
Kill it with patiala!
Be it any festival, or celebration, Patiala with Kurti is one of those combinations that can never go wrong. Pick a white Patiala, Kurti, pair it up with a bright orange dupatta. Any material would work, but we will suggest you get a georgette dupatta. Wear Jhumkas and a pair of shimmery heels. Go easy on your make up. Complete this gorgeous look with some green bangles on one hand, and a silver watch on another.

The one with stripes!
Want to try something in western? Then this look is for you. Pick a white bell-bottom pant ( get one with some chicken Kari work on it). Team it up with a loose, full-sleeved navy blue top. Wear silver bangles, and a pair of huge Jhumkas (Since everything is subtle in your outfit, the jewellry needs to stand out). Tie your hair in a loose pony, and do minimal makeup.

It’s time to pick that flared off-white palazzo, which you thought went out of style and get ready for the Republic day celebration. To get this look, wear a cotton orange top with your palazzo. Don’t forget to pin your favourite tassels (latkan) on your top. Wear Jhumkas or golden hoops. Tie your hair in a loose bun, pick a brown lipstick, and smile because the camera is clicking!

Low key with lucknowi!
If you don’t have an orange, cotton lucknowi kurti, it’s time to get one right now, because a Lucknawi kurti with pants or churidar will always make you look pretty. This look is basic, but it will definitely turn heads. Pair your white pants, with a long orange lucknowi, and pick a white embroidered dupatta. Wear box heels, and match your makeup with your sandals. Go for minimal jewelry, a light makeup, and pose with that flary dupatta.

Be bright with black and white!
If you are thinking, ‘ I don’t have those tops or bottoms man!’, then relax, we have got something for you. A black and white saree or anything in the same combination would look ‘Republic day ready’. Since your outfits are monochromatic, do a light tri-colour eye makeup, leave your hair open, and complete this look with a Bindi.
Saree: DIY ( Archana styled it during her college days in Chennai), got the fabric from Nalli Sarees & attached a lace on Pallu)
Blouse: Readymade Blouses, Chennai

Subtle and gorgeous!
We can’t end this list without mentioning the most gorgeous tri-colour look. We are sure, you have a long white Kurti in your wardrobe, so it’s time to pick that. Wear dark green leggings/ churidar, with a rustic orange shawl, or an embroidered orange dupatta. Since the bottom is fitted, going for cotton, or banarasi silk, or chanderi dupatta would make you look better. Wear a statement ring, and don’t forget to wear jhumkas!
