We all have grown up from visiting school on every Independence Day to participating in our residential premises’ flag hoisting ceremony. We get up early in the morning, despite the day being a national holiday, and stare at our wardrobe with a typical question – What to wear? You want to wear something that goes with the theme of the day – at least one part of your outfit or even some accessories – because the desire to express your love for India is naturally peaking high on this day. New Woman has come up with 5 simple tips to help you celebrate Independence Day fashionably.
Tri-Coloured Quill Earrings
Quill earrings have been one of the most organic and eco-friendly types of earrings of the century! They are made out of quilling paper. For this Independence Day, you can wear quill earrings made from saffron, green, white and royal blue coloured quill papers. You can wear them on a plain or chikankari white crisp kurta or any other colours from our Tricolour.

Tri-Coloured Thread Bangles
Thread bangles are so hassle-free! There are so many designs of thread bangles in various sizes, widths and colours in market – surely you will find the colours such as saffron, green and white. They are so convenient that if you want to make one tri-coloured kada, you can put multiple bangles of each colour and tie them together with a thread at two places and flaunt it even on a pair of jeans and a short kurta!
Fusion suits are so in for any given occasion! You can pair a lightly embroidered white dupatta with palazzos and long kurtis of either saffron or green colours, or both! Go for a mismatched outfit with these three beautiful colours and you can wear any of these on any other occasions as well.

Khaadi is the humblest garment ever! It speaks so much about our country’s history, our nations father – Mahatma Gandhi and our culture; and when draped in the form of a saree you are bound to feel even more close to our modern history and culture. The best thing about khadi saree is that it’s light and is very comfortable to drape. Nothing looks more sober yet empowering than a woman in crisp khaadi saree.
Dupatta Hued In The Colours Of Tiranga
A phulkari dupatta or a silk one embellished with zari, hued in the colours of our beloved Tricolour does wonder on plain white salwar kameez. It is very fashionable and despite such dupattas being heavy they are so humble when paired with salwar-kameez made of cotton, khadi or linen. One such dupatta is a must-have!
