We have all welcomed 2022 with fervour, and when it feels like we have just settled into the month of January, Republic Day is almost here! On this national holiday, there is a general feeling of pomp all over the country - with people decked up in fine clothing and accessories like ethnic jewellery, singing patriotic songs, bonding together over scrumptious food, etc.


Similar to every special event, the Republic Day also calls for us to be dressed fashionably, but in a way that suits the theme of the occasion. So, here are 5 chic ways for ladies to dress this 26th January:



  • Pair a white salwar suit with a tricolour dupatta



It’s a no-brainer that one must adorn traditional outfits for an important national event like the Republic Day. The best way to dress up for the day is by opting for a plain white salwar kameez, and pairing it with a statement dupatta that is beautified with the hues of the Indian flag. The pristine white of the overall ensemble will perfectly balance the striking saffron and green hues of the dupatta, lending you a gorgeous appearance!



  • Drape an elegant saree in shades of the Indian flag



Nothing can match the grace of the saree, which is almost every Indian woman’s favourite ethnic outfit. If you are a quintessential Indian lady who loves to drape the nine yards every chance she gets, then what better option for you than to adorn a saree this Republic day? In sync with the occasion, you can pair an elegant green-coloured silk saree with an orange-coloured blouse and turn heads with every move!



  • Opt for minimal accessories



Whatever the occasion, your attire is not complete without adding in some accessories. This Republic Day, make sure to not go overboard with accessories and jewellery and keep everything minimal. You can go for statement jewellery pieces like chandbali earrings along with your ethnic outfit. Wear traditional footwear like mojaris and opt for a stylish clutch or a sling purse preferably in the colours of the flag to complete your look.



  • Picking the colours of the outfit and accessories



There is no hard and fast rule that says that your outfits and accessories need to incorporate all the hues of the tricolour. You can take any shade you like be it saffron, white, green, or deep blue - and either go for monochrome outfits with colourful accessories, or pick multicoloured ones with minimal accessories. The choice is all yours and you can play with it however you want!



  • Make an offbeat statement with your painted nails



It isn’t necessary to only wear clothing and accessories in the Indian tricolour shades if you find it too cliched. Instead, you can dress up in simple clothes and make a statement by painting your nails in the colours of the flag! This way, you can stand apart from the crowd without making it too obvious.


These are some of the ways in which you can style yourself this Republic Day. You can buy ethnic jewellery online as well as clothes and accessories to put together your look for the occasion.
