If you’re looking to inject a dose of fun into your ethnic lineup for the festive season, all roads can only lead to the season’s must-have prints. From Priyanka Chopra’s sunset-hued ensemble to Alia Bhatt’s contemporary take on an age-old dyeing technique, the options are endless and the possibilities are limitless. Ahead, we take a closer look at the key prints you’ll want to add to your wardrobe for the festive season:


Loved down the centuries, this revered technique finds fresh meaning in Alia Bhatt’s hands with her gradient sari. Drenched in a scene-stealing ombré of saturated hues, her drape makes for an ideal candidate for an at-home puja or intimate gathering.


Down the years, we have seen every possible iteration of stripes—but Kiara Advani manages to offer up a breath of fresh air with her zebra-striped sari that she belted at the waist for a more cinched silhouette.


If you are looking for pointers on how to elevate a monochromatic look, you will want to steal a few tricks from Madhuri Dixit-Nene’s playbook. As the finishing touch to her mauve anarkali, the star reached for a chevron-striped foil dupatta that serves as an instant conversation-starter.

Moody Florals

Forget everything you have ever known about dainty florals and soothing summery pastels—Deepika Padukone wants you to make friends with the moodier hues on the spectrum with an ephemeral number like hers.

Maximalist Florals

The more-is-more mandate continues with Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ statement-making separates. Splashed with oversized florals in a sunset palette, a bold number like hers makes for the perfect choice for late-night taash parties.
