Get Ready for Holi!



The colourful festival of Holi is celebrated in the month of March which is right around the corner.

On this day, people hug and wish each other 'Happy Holi' and the celebration begins with lighting up of bonfire on the Holi eve. The next morning is a free-for-all carnival of colours, where people play, chase and colour each other with dry powder and coloured water, with some carrying water guns and coloured water-filled balloons for their water fight.

Holi also gives a wonderful chance to send blessings and love to dear ones wrapped in a special Holi gifts. What could possibly make a better gift than clothes? The perfect attire for this traditional festival is a saree!

It’s time to shop for yourself and your special someone! Breathe some colourful new life into your closet with vibrant shades. Wearing colour can do amazing things for your skin tone, hair colour, and overall appearance.

How to add colour to your wardrobe? 
  • If you don’t normally wear lots of colour, dive in head first by throwing on the first bright piece you see.
  • You can also add colours to your accessories and shoes. 
  • Use a vibrant bag and shoes to rev up an outfit.  
  • Grab colours like juicy orange; it flatters everyone!
  • You can also mix colours in one colour family. Pick different shades in the same palette (assortment of pink or blues) and try different fabrics.
The last tip is to use colour to express your personality and add some fun to your look. While it’s nice to try and dress well, when you add some colour it’s believed to have an impact on your mood. Here at Pothys we have introduced a wide range of sarees inspired by spring. To make your work easier and to add a splash of colour to your wardrobe visit our store or log on to www.pothys.com

Floral Wardrobe this Spring season!


It is no secret that ladies love flowers; and floral printed fabrics have been in since the 20th Century. The floral print originates from the East and Asia. They symbolize femininity, and they showcase the beauty of Nature.

Floral prints have a rejuvenating effect because of their strong Spring/Summer associations. Twists on birds, flowers, Aztec prints, branches and vines present an awareness of our rich floral history.

How to wear floral prints?

1. Experiment with colors and patterns! Now is the time to try out some of Spring’s bold, colorful floral prints.

2. Choose a print: With so many types of floral prints to choose from, it’s important to choose a pattern that works with your personal taste and style. Flower designs can range from dainty and delicate to big and bold, each kind carrying its own personality and character. If you prefer styles that are simple and sophisticated, try looking for a print that features small, miniature flowers. This is not only appropriate for the office and work place, but is a great way to bring in a feminine touch. If you're the type to rock statement patterns, a print featuring larger flowers will work best for you. Look for bright colors, vibrant designs and eye-catching details.

3. Use Accessories: Wearing accessories is one of the most tried and true ways of wearing any kind of pattern, and the same can certainly be said for floral prints. Even just one accessory is enough to brighten up an otherwise plain outfit. Larger items such as tote bags, hats and scarves can add some major color to a look, while jewelry and belts can bring in a light dose of floral fun. It’s a good idea to have several flower patterned accessories in your wardrobe, because you’ll never know when your outfit will need a little extra something. Even if you don’t plan ahead, a floral accessory is an easy way to add instant style.
