Let These Celebrities Inspire Your Rakshabandhan Outfit

You may not get a holiday from work for it, but Rakshabandhan is still one of those prominent traditions you upkeep. Sure it’s all about that sibling bond, but to be very honest, I love it for two reasons: The outfit and the gift. And what’s not to like, right? You get to wear a brand new outfit and you get a gift from your brother on the same day – it’s really one of those win-win situations if you ask me.

When it comes to picking out the perfect look, it’s important to remember not to go too heavy. Think dhoti pants, light jackets, embroidered kurtas over jeans and all around easy-breezy silhouettes.

We picked out 8 celebrity outfits to inspire you and topped it up with a few of our favourite stores to shop from, take a look:
