“Hey! Can you please suggest some tips for teenagers to dress up for Onam 2016?”
While I totally remember posting about dressing tips for Onam, I agree that was a very general piece of advice, and not all can relate to it. I totally missed addressing a section of women who would appreciate my tips. So, today’s post is how teenagers should dress up for Onam 2016. Before beginning that, I would recommend that you check out the last post about Onam dressing style that I have written.
What to wear on Onam 2016?
As a teenager, you should pick up half sarees. In fact, younger women in Kerela wear half sarees only. Grab a half Kasavu saree. If you don’t already know, kasavu sarees are the traditional dress that is worn during this festival. It’s white or off white saree with a golden border. The golden thread work brings all that difference. To be truthful, I never paid much attention to Kasavu Sarees until Sonam Kapoor wore it in a movie – Aisha. The song and the whole dress just wooed me and ever since I have been researching on this dress.
You do not have much choice when it comes to what to wear in Onam 2016. Of course, you can try anything but then staying true to the tradition is the best you can do. But with jewellery, I suggest you try three of these options. You can wear jhumkas, traditional elephant jewellery or antique jewellery. As a young teenager, skip the jhumkas. Go for elephant jewellery or antique jewellery. It’ll look more girlish and stylish.
For hairstyle, I have two options that will suit teenagers. One is a Dutch braid that’s kept in the front. Keep it messy and decorate it with small golden beads. You can also go for a bun and then use traditional jasmine flowers to style yourself. A messy bun is in vogue, and it’ll look good. Keep in mind that doing a bun is a tricky part here. I suggest you go for a light messy bun only as it will give you the desired fresh look.
Keep it light. I am not against makeup. In fact, I love makeup, but that just doesn’t look right when you go overboard with it. Keep it light. You’re not in a race to finish up that eyeshadow palette than your best friend. You just want to look good and dabbing a little bit of makeup is enough. Don’t forget to wear a tiny maroon colored bindi to add up to your traditional look. Bindis look hot! I mentioned that in my last post on advice to college girls as well. It’s no longer the piece that only married women/aunties wear. It’s something girls wear the most these days. Try it!
Saree doesn’t look good with anything but heels. So, grab a pair of comfortable heels and enjoy the festival!
