Parties, Food, Lights, Sweets, Friends, Family, Prayers, Colours – Diwali is all about merry making and offering prayers to seek good luck for the coming year. To look extra ravishing in Diwali 2016, here are some fashion tips from the experts that you must follow:
- Trending Traditional Outfits
No doubt a traditional salwar suit or a churidaar kurti can make you look gorgeous. But, the latest trends are slightly modified. This Diwali, you can try wearing a Lehenga Dress or Lehenga Sari, or a floor length Anarkali Suit. If too much flow annoys you, then you can also simply wear a straight kurti with a palazzo.
- Fusion and Remixes
Many girls and women can’t bear those heavy embroideries, long draperies and extra sparkle, but, still want to look traditional this festive season. To add a traditional element to your style, you can try combining Indian and Western Wear! For instance, you can pair up a nice traditional Gujarati work skirt with a contrasting coloured short and sleeveless kurti. You can also wear dresses and gowns with traditional work. Not only women, but even men can try Modi or Bandhgala jackets and pair it up with blue coloured denim to look freaking handsome!
- Traditional Feet
Forget your sneakers, wedges and sports shoes. This Diwali, why not dig deep into the history of the Indian footwear collection and wear Kolhapuris or Jodhpuris? This suits both men and women. Pick up a golden, tan or copper coloured Jodhpuri or Kolhapuri shoes, with little embroidery and minimal stone work, from your nearby local shoe store and feel comfortable and elegant while you walk from house to house this Diwali.
- Jewellery and Embellishments
No traditional look is complete without embellishing your look with jewellery and make up. If you are wearing a heavy embroidery sari or anarkali suit, then it is advisable that you just compliment your look with a pair of heavy danglers. For those who are wearing clothes with minimal embroidery or just border work, they can complement their look with matching chokers, maang tika and earrings. Ladies wearing sari, can do a little extra show off with a sexy looking kamarband. Never forget to give a finishing touch and an added traditional feel, with the help of a small and pretty bindi.
