Lohri is a popular festival celebrated in India, particularly in the northern states of Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi. It marks the end of the winter season and is traditionally a time for people to come together, dance, and celebrate with bonfires, sweets, and other festive activities. As with any cultural celebration, it is important to consider what to wear on Lohri in order to show respect and appreciation for the traditions and customs of the occasion. 


In this article, we will explore the traditional clothing options for Lohri, as well as some modern contemporary alternatives that are apt for the occasion, esp for the cameras :)


Outfits for Women


1) Lehenga

As the flames of the Lohri bonfire reach the sky, Lehngas are the most common among young millennial girls. Adorned in shimmering lehngas you can gracefully move to the beats of the dhol with the vibrant colors of the traditional garment swirling around you — as a symbol of celebrating culture and femininity. On the joyous occasion of Lohri, the lehnga is a statement of pride and a tribute to the traditions that have been passed down for generations.


2) Anarkali suits

Flaunt your free-spirited beauty in embellished anarkali suits paired with organza dupatta. Complete your look with embellished sequined matching heels, earrings, and eyelashes for a perfect Indian aesthetic blended with modern fashion. If you want to don a queen’s opulence on Lohri — this is what you need to wear.


3) Indo-western

Lohri might mark the last few days of winter, but it is still winter. Until Holi at least. So, what to wear on the Lohri to be fashionable and to kill the chill simultaneously? Maybe, an embroidered jacket with linen saree or suit set. If you’re the fashionista in your circle who loves to look different than the rest, drench yourself in indo-western silhouettes like pre-stitched saree, dhoti style drapes, or maybe salwar kamiz with a nude faux leather diamantine heels.


4) Patiala Salwar suits

The patiala salwar suit is a chic and stylish choice for celebrating Lohri. Your perfect choice for a traditional queenish look. Patiala salwar suit features loose, flowing pants (the salwar) paired with a knee-length tunic (the kameez) and a matching scarf (the dupatta) with numerous pleats and gathers, which give the pants a voluminous and playful silhouette. You should prefer a kameez adorned with intricate embroidery or beadwork to add a touch of glamour to the overall look. Draped dupatta over your head or over the shoulders, completing the ensemble with a touch of traditional flair. No more butterflies in the bellies worrying about what to wear on Lohri. Make a bold statement with Patiala Salwar Suits.


5) Silk Saree

Outshine everyone else this Lohri with what rules the heart and minds of young & traditional Indian women when it comes to fashion — Saree. Drape yourself in Kolhapuri, Bhagalpuri, Kanjeevaram, Baluchari, or Banarasi embroidered silk saree, and be the queen wherever you stand.

6) Sharara Lohri Dress

Time to get dolled and rock the Lohri celebrations with minimal embroidered sharara suit paired up with Punjabi jooti. You can also go for a peplum kurta and sharara combo to add extra voluminous look.
