Festive Fashion: Glam Up For Makar Sankranti With These Celebrity-Inspired Black Outfits!

Throughout India, the festival is known by various names. Pongal, Sankranti, Lohri, whatever you want to call it, it marks the end of the winter solstice and the start of Spring in India. This, like every other Indian festival, is rich in food and is celebrated with kites flying across the sky. When it comes to attire, while most festivals prefer bright and flashy colours, this festival is known for those who dress in black!

Because this is the last day of winter, it is thought and proven to be one of the coldest of the entire season. Because black absorbs heat, most people prefer to wear it to stay warm. And, while black is usually considered unlucky for festivals, today is an exception!

Despite the fact that bright colours are also worn with great pomp and show during this festival, black is also considered auspicious just for the day.

So, this Makar Sankranti, look your ethnic best by taking cues from your favourite Bollywood celebs who show us how to wear black fashionably.

Do you need some last-minute outfit ideas? We’ve got you covered!

Tone on Tone Effect

Black may appear to be a basic colour, but it has a lot of potential for an elegant and sophisticated look. Alia Bhatt nails tone on tone style every time, and she’s your go-to style inspiration if you’re going for a similar look. Experiment with different options, such as a tone on tone anarkali, saree, or palazzo suit, and pair them with metallic jewellery to complete the look.

Sharara, Sharara!

There is no denying that shararas have left an indelible mark in recent years. This year should be no exception. Celebrate Makar Sankranti in the ultimate black sharara like Tara Sutaria’s, complete with traditional gota patti or zari embroidery work. With traditional chandbalis or a statement choker, you’ll be ready to ring in the festive season in style.

“Trenching” It

It is, without a doubt, the coldest day of the year, and what better way to stay stylish and warm than to throw on a trench coat or a jacket. Sonam Kapoor does everything better, and this look is no exception. Sonam Kapoor accessorises her pretty Sabyasachi anarkali with a trenchcoat on top and silver jhumkis.

We are convinced that this is a fashionable way to layer coats and jackets for the winter season without giving up ethnic style.

Saree with a modern twist

Combined with the sheer saree, this ulta-pallu and cropped black top is a wonderful modern twist on the traditional saree. Mira Rajput looks stunning in this saree.

The Monochrome Look

Malaika Arora also provides us with excellent ethnic inspiration. Her monochrome tone-on-tone black saree can make any festive occasion look even more festive.

The black and gold shades

Mouni Roy’s Instagram profile reveals her love of sarees. Nothing says glam like a black and gold saree, and we’re sure you won’t want to miss out on this one for any festive occasion.

Patterns on Black

Geometric designs have made a big comeback in Indian fashion, as seen on Ananya Panday’s black lehenga. This is not only a chic and youthful way to experiment with colours on black, but it is also a bold option. Geometrical patterns look great on shararas and anarkalis as well as lehengas and are perfect for the festive season.

Semi-sheer saree

When it comes to festive fashion, how can we ever forget Kiara Advani’s stunning diva glam? Kiara is giving us all the reasons to add her look to our fashion lookbooks, dressed in a beautiful semi sheer black saree. She wore the drape with a strappy monochrome blouse and accessorised with a polki choker.

Sparkly sheer saree

As for her accessories, Katrina wore statement earrings, two thick sets of bangles, and a striking ring to complement her saree. To add to her evening look, she left her hair open with a centre partition.
