Interesting Outfits for a Dazzling Diwali
Diwali is right around the corner and if you’ve been too busy getting the house ready and shopping for gifts; you probably didn’t have time to look for ideas for that perfect outfit. That’s why we have rounded up some interesting (and trendy) options to help you look your festive best this Diwali. Here they are:
Floral prints can make any ensemble pop. Whether you’re wearing a saree, kurti, gown, salwaar suit or even a lehenga, floral patterns add a feminine, romantic touch to your look. If you can’t find the perfect set, just get a floral skirt and team it up with a simple top or long slit kurti.
Kurti Dress / Gowns
Celebrities have been wearing ethnic gowns for a long time now, and for good reason – they work! For Diwali, choose bright colors like blues or yellows. Gowns are always fashionable and elegant. If you choose a simple pastel one, you can jazz it up with vibrant makeup and a shimmery clutch.
Crop Top with High Waist Pants or Skirt
Wearing a crop top instead of a blouse or choli adds a contemporary twist to any ethnic outfit. You can wear it with a high waist skirt or palazzos or even a dhoti skirt. Feel free to experiment with colors and patterns. Try a gold top with a printed or floral bottom or if you have time – get material and get a matching set stitched.
The dhoti looks modern and is super comfortable, especially if you have a lot of running around to do. You can wear a dhoti dress or just wear dhoti pants with a short top or long kurti.
Having mirrors embellished on your outfit adds a bit of glam and makes it look more festive. Even if the mirror work is just along the neckline and sleeves, it can make the simplest kurti look fancy.
Long Slit Top with Cigarette Pants or Jeans
If you’re looking to blend traditional with trendy, the long slit top or kurti is a great option. You can pick one that has a slit along the middle or the side. The slit can be high enough to reveal a bit of midriff or it can begin at the hip. The best thing about these tops is that they can be worn with almost anything – from jeans to pencil pants to even palazzos.
Asymmetrical Dresses and Kurtis
Instead of going with the usual straight hemline, look for kurtis that are asymmetrical and semi fitted. These kurits are extremely fashionable and can also be worn as a dress.
Have Time? Turn your Saree into a Dress
If you have some old sarees lying around or your mom doesn’t mind parting with hers, there are a variety of designs you can try. Western outfits like a skater dress or a sleeveless gown look very pretty when made from a traditional saree. You can also make a crop top, a skirt, kurti, anarkali and more.
