Have a Happy, Prosperous and a Fashionable Deepawali!!!
The festival of lights is the perfect time to bring out your traditional side and dress up in all the fineries. With the festivities around the corner it’s time you get your festive look right and we are here to help you with that.
You don’t need to spend a bomb to look like one as you can look your festive best even in budget. We have put together some style tips for the Diwali look so you look at your stunning best.
Trending Long Skirts
If long and flowy garments are your thing then Diwali is the best time to bring those long flowy skirts out and team them up with any upper of your choice be it choli, kurti, blouse or to give your look a little edge go for crop tops.
If casual and trendy is what you are aiming at then pair your long skirt with a smart crop top, loop earrings and go for the Kolhapuri slippers to complete the edgy look.
Soft and Velvety
Carry a velvet stole with your saree, suit or lehenga and see the grandness for yourself.
The Western Influence
Bored of the same old anarkalis, sarees and lehengas, why not wear an Indo-western outfit that swings between both the western and traditional sides. A full length maxi dress with embroidered bodice and a plain skirt or slim pants worn with an embroidered top or a draped saree with a sexy blouse, look different than the crowd.
The lehenga-saree can be your best option to keep it traditional yet super trendy. You are not restricted with the skirt and the pallu can draped the way you like it.
The Traditional Nine Yards of Fabric
The nine yards of fabric remains an ageless beauty as it has evolved with every fashion era. A classy plain saree with a heavy border or a printed saree worn with a sexy blouse or the traditional silk saree wear it the way you like it.
Go in for a high neck blouse with full sleeves or a boat neck one with short sleeves or a backless blouse, the options to style a saree with a creatively designed blouse are many and good enough to make you stand out in the crowd.
Yes, it’s still there and still rocking the traditional scene. Comfortable yet stylish, churidaar kameez worn with beautiful jewelry looks beautiful even today. Go for brighter shades and wear them with high heel stilettos to get the stylish look.
Go Bright Go Bold
Diwali is all about happiness so go for happy colors that look bright and add vibrancy to the atmosphere. Shades of orange, blue, green, pink, red and even gold are perfect for the festive times. Nudes too look classy in shades of cream, rose, beige and buff.
Go for natural fabrics that are airy and let your skin breathe. Artificial fibers like polyester, nylon or rayon should simply be kept aside as they are susceptible to catching fire. Natural fabrics like cotton, jute, wool, silk, linen not only look good but are easy to maintain too.
Earrings are dangling, rings are chunkier, bangles are heavier and necklaces are going down. Statement pieces are all set to be the center of attention. Remember the trick, less is more.
Style it with Shoes
The power to make or break any look lies with your footwear so let your feet do the talking now. Team up skirts or churidaar kameez with flats or small heels but if going for saree or Indo-Western look the higher the heel the better the look.
Groom it up
Your festive look might be blingy but is incomplete without the right makeup and hair. Go in for tied hairstyles so it is fuss-free and as for makeup go in for shades like copper, burgundy, champagne for your lips as they work well with traditional wear.
Explore and Experiment
Remember to never compromise on both style and comfort!!!
