How To Look Fashionable & Trendy This Diwali


Diwali is almost upon us and so are the grand family gatherings, lavish dinners and some crazy card parties. Dressing right for each time can be quite a task but there are a lot of ways to spice up your wardrobe this festive season. So, what to do? Follow these easy tips to look ravishing and make heads turn at every party.

The traditional route:

Diwali is the best time to flaunt all your Indian wear. If the plain old style is not your game, you can always experiment with trends and add your own personal twist to the style of your choice. The silhouettes can range from panelled suits to floor length anarkalis and from a normally draped sari to a differently draped one. Still confused? Take inspiration from these traditional styles to look stunning and drop-dead-gorgeous.

  • Anarkali Suit
  • Sari
  • Lehnga Sari
  • Patiala Suit
  • Angrakha

Fusion wear:

If you are one of those experimental, bold and modern dressers, then you can always opt for a fusion wear. The Indo-western wear not only looks chic and elegant but is also fast becoming the preferred choice of dressing of the modern Indian women. Give a twist of style to your regular style by pairing n off-shoulder blouse with your sari or wear sari over straight pant. Another look that you can experiment with is wearing a straight kurta or a long Nehru Jacket over dhoti pants. A crop top in pop prints paired with a floor length ethnic skirt also makes for an appealing proposition for Diwali night parties.

Retro accessories:

Retro styles are back in fashion so go dig your mom’s closet for elegant chokers, balis, jhumkas, jhoomar, maang tikas & anklets. But steer clear or wearing everything you can lay your hands on lest you want to end up looking like an over-decorate Christmas tree on Diwali night. The trick is to go subtle so wear only one statement piece at a time.

Trendy footwear:

A footwear can make or break your entire look so choose wisely. Always choose comfort over style so if wearing high heels is not your game, you can opt for jutis or kholapuri chappals in various colours and designs. Pumps and peep-toes go well with Indo-western wear.
