As the festival of Holi involves a lot of fun, frolic and celebrations, it is necessary to pay special attention to the clothes we wear because while we are immersed in the festivities, we often ignore the fact that we subject ourselves to colours that can be harmful to our skin. Flowing clothes and fabrics made of reactive material should be completely avoided in Holi. Here is a list of things you should keep in mind while playing and partying in Holi.
White and light colours
Wear white or light clothes if possible as the colours of Holi are best showcased in white. Also it is best to wear something old and worn out so that you do not regret it getting spoilt.
Wear rubber bathroom or Hawaii chappals and not leather footwear as they get soaked in water and may give in. If you have a sensitive skin it is best to cover yourself as much as you can. Wear full-sleeved t-shirt or shirts that cover your arms fully.
Take care of your hair
Hair tends to take the maximum brunt of holi. The strong chemicals in the colours tend to spoil your hair. It is best to oil them before you go out to celebrate. Also , wearing a hat, cap or a bandana gives you a trendy look and protects your hair as well.
Avoid unwanted attention
Women should avoid transparent, clingy clothes. You don’t want to spoil your mood by attracting unwanted attention at a holi party. Dress sensibly so that you can enjoy and have a good time!
