Rakshan Bandhan Outfit Ideas for Women

Why Do We Celebrate Raksha Bandhan?

The Indian festival of Raksha Bandhan is an auspicious day celebrating the sacred bond of love between brothers and sisters. When a sister ties a rakhi on her brother’s wrist, it symbolises a two-way commitment of protection, and a common ritual following this is one where the brother presents a gift to his sister.

While Raksha Bandhan was originally a festival marking this bond between brothers and sisters, over the years, people have rendered beautiful interpretations of this conventional idea. These days it's fairly common to see a sister tying a Rakhi on another sister’s wrist too. After all, a festival celebrating love and concern among siblings and the vow to protect and stand up for a sibling is not subjective to gender!

Raksha Bandhan is celebrated across the country with much vigour, and siblings across all age groups dress up in ethnic wear to participate in this festival of joy. This year, Rakshabandhan is on 11th August, 2022. Among all the preparations, looking for Raksha Bandhan outfit ideas becomes a rather important task.
