Plastic flags and pins with the tricolour on it are sold by street vendors, the National Anthem is heard more often and all those ethnic clothes are brought out from the depths of the cupboard. On the day of the event, there are alarms kept to wake people up especially for the flag hoisting, post which everybody binges on tricolour themed food while watching the parade.
This year, take it a notch higher and dress for the occasion. Incorporate the tricolour in your outfits leading up to the day by going all out with wearing all the colours - saffron, green and white, or go subtle and sport one or two colours simultaneously. Whatever you choose, if you are in need of some inspiration on how to style your outfits, our B-town celebrities have your back!
It is obviously not easy to incorporate all the colours of the tricolour into a single outfit but there's no harm in trying to fit in as many as you can!
Green is one of the easiest colours, to wear since it is available in different shades from emerald lime green, that suit almost every skin tone.
Kareena Kapoor Khan gives us lessons on how to look smoking while looking classy the same time. She paired her emerald green saree with actual emeralds and looked regal. She also sported a lighter shade of the colour in a simple churidar, giving us two great options for the day.
This bright colour is not as easy to carry off but if it is the right tone, a full head-to-toe orange outfit will set the place ablaze!
If the colour is just too bright for you, add a little bit of white to give the outfit some subtlety. Tone it down further by adding a lighter colour of the same shade, like yellow, to the outfit and look as graceful as ever!
