Evolution of patriot fashion- Love for Tricolor
Fashion is considered one of the most revolutionary industries in human life.
From the mere necessity of covering the skin and protecting ourselves from the intense nature people evolved to change the definition of clothing for better use and a great appearance.
People have started to express their feelings and their nature by a mere piece of clothing covering their bodies. By this people has started dressing for the occasion and made some rules that should be followed with indulgence. So, fashion has changed and evolved through the years for expressing the love of the country on Independence day.
It has been 75 years since we are celebrating Independence day and there have been many changes from the way we celebrate and greet to the way we style and express our emotions. Today we’re going to learn about how fashion has changed for the past 75 years since today for the patriot fashion.
- Early years of Independence:
In the early years of Independence day, people often used to wear a white or an off-white traditional attire that resembles sobriety and purity.
Many men and women used to take part in rallies. People used to gather around for the celebration and the flag hoisting and while many communists used to gather around and prepare special acts on the streets to show their love for the country.
- Mid-years of Independence:
As time passed by people started using the tricolour in their attire to show patriotism. A white saree with saffron and green border or a Kurti with a tint of tricolour in it. People choose to add shades of tricolour in their attire through the piece of clothing. But still, the pattern and the silhouette are the same i.e, traditional Indian wear. Wearing bangles or a wristband with a beautiful tricolour has been a great way to accentuate the look for Independence day.
- New generation for Independence:
People nowadays have started experimenting a lot with colour and silhouette. In schools where it was mandatory to wear a uniform on this day, the new dress code for tricolour has been added to the bucket. That gives many the freedom to experiment and style according to their own imaginations. People have started to move towards the western silhouettes for the tricolour attire. Women can be seen wearing a midi dress or a western skirt with a hint of tricolour. While many opt to keep it minimal by simply wearing white and adding accessories of the saffron and green colour.
Fashion will come and go. And there is plenty of style and evolution which is left to be seen and discovered for the national festival of India. But the one thing that we as Indians are wholeheartedly proud of is being Indian and loving every moment of our living around our brothers and sisters as a family.
Wish you a very happy Independence day to everyone.
