How to keep with the patriotic spirit sans white!

Dressing up in the Indian Tricolour usually means going way overboard with the white. Team SC tells you how to dress patriotic this Republic Day without overdoing white.


Dress in Saffron – Take focus off the white and try dressing up in bright saffron instead! Accessorize with white with some green thrown in for the patriotic effect. A white belt or shoes or a scarf will serve as great accents to your Republic Day outfit.


Accessorize in Tricolour – If you don’t want to go all out tiranga¬†with your look, one option is to accessorize in the national flag colours. Wear your outfit in the shades of navy with some white thrown in here and there (maybe in the print or embellishment). For accessorizing, pick out chic statement pieces in the colours of green and saffron!

Go Green – Take a leaf out of Duchess Kate’s style book and wear a green dress. Add the patriotic Indian charm by wearing a saffron belt and shoes, while a white handbag will complete your look.


The trick is to pick one colour for major impact and the other two acting as chic accents.
