Dress Up The Bollywood Way
Even though we know that Bollywood holi dresses are way to unrealistic, but it is okay to be dressed up when it is your first holi. When you meet the guests, photographs and so on. No one is asking you to wear a white embellished saree with diamond jewelry, bt yes women should go for descent old suits (in good condition) with little accessories like some creative gajra styled in hair or maybe simply braid with earrings.
Men on the other hand can do much more than just plain kurta-pyjama. If you have a Holi Party at home, pair your kurta with a churidaar and a jacket. Also use those classy RayBan shades with mojris in foot. The look is all set and complete!
