“Embrace comfort and style with a colorful kurta with wide-leg pants. This is perfect for effortless movement and enjoyment. Enhance it with vibrant waterproof jewellery for added flair. Select a vibrant co-ord set for a fun and hassle-free Holi outfit. Ideal for an active celebration, this choice combines ease with style. Adorn with minimalistic, waterproof accessories for a complete look, ” Rishika Jain, Co-Founder at Nero India told IANS.

Jain shared that colourful kurta sets, ethnic dresses, shorts co-ord sets too add an oomph factor.
