The four-day Tamilian harvest festival in 2020 will begin on January 15 and end on January 18. In the Tamil language, the word Pongal means signifying abundance and prosperity and hence the celebrations also call for some amazing dressing-up. Thai Pongal is an important festival and we bet you are looking for some inspiration on what to wear for the festive season. While the festival is perfect for any ethnic wear, we think its good to experiment and while you could choose to go for lehengas and salwar suits, we think going for some heavy brocade sarees would be a good option too. Pongal 2020 Date and Shubh Muhurat: History, Significance, Thai Pongal Rituals and Celebrations of the Annual Tamil Festival.
Sarees are always in and Pongal is a good time to flaunt your festive vibe. We bet when we think of sarees, you are reminded of the gorgeous sarees worn by Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone and the likes. We are here to help you pick the best styles to bring out the perfect cultural feel this Pongal. Here's looking at some of the gorgeous ladies from showbiz who showed us how to dress to kill in a saree!
Nothing like wearing a gorgeous handloom saree for Pongal celebrations. The best thing about these is that you can find them in various colours and the fabric always manages to give your look an elegant look. Like Vidya here, you can choose to go plain and ditch the accessories or amp up the look even further.
Kriti Sanon is another actress who gave us some serious fashion goals in sarees at the recent Panipat promotions. This Pink saree by Ekaya is a great combination of going traditional as well as sexy at the same time.
Tamannaah recently stunned us by wearing this gorgeous pink saree for an event. We love this saree mainly because the saree boasts of a beautiful broad border. Tamannaah looks even better with the accessories and particularly the 'gajra' with this look.

Divyanka Tripathi is another actress who could give you inspiration on how to dress for Pongal. The actress' green saree in this picture is a great choice if you want to keep your look ethnic and not too glitzy, this one is a great option. The colour itself gives a grand look and could work perfectly for Pongal. Deepika Padukone Stuns in a Gorgeous Yellow Saree and We Think It's Perfect for a Lohri 2020 Festival Outing! (See Pics).

There's never a dearth of Pink silk sarees and while you can go for Benarasi weaves like that of Kriti Sanon and Tamannaah Bhatia or you can take cues from Kajol on how to rock a simple look with pop colours of pink and orange.
We hope you enjoy a great Thai Pongal with family and friends as you start the auspicious harvest season by taking blessings from elders as well.
