The festival of lights is just around the corner and the woes of 'what to wear on Diwali' come as a free offer, but fashion blogger Isha Borah shares with us this extensive suggestion list of what to wear.
This year, with the lockdown protocols at ease, you can actually think of celebrating Diwali with your friends and family as you used to before, please don't forget to stay safe though. To amp up your Diwali outfits, there are a few ideas you can consider.
So, get ready to curate your outfits that will help you steal the show.
Kurtas and suits: Kurtas and suits work like magic across any festival. Take your pick from anarkalis, straight kurtas, or the chikankari beauty.
If comfort is what you look for whenever you dress up, chikankari suits or kurtas paired with cigarette pants or palazzos or even jeans if you want an Indo western look are your go-to. They're breathable and won't make you feel suffocated. Accessorize your outfit with chandbali earrings, a potli bag and juttis
Anarkalis with prints, tie-ups at the neck and the beautiful gathered volume around your waist makes you look stunning. The kurti adds a different kind of softness and elegance to your look. Accessorize your outfits with Kolhapuris or even heels to add to the height, heavy earrings if your anarkali is simple
If you happen to own a white suit and never really found an occasion to wear that, this Diwali might just be the occasion for it. The white pristine suit paired with colorful kanjeevaram or any colorful dupatta as a matter of fact can steal the show. Pair your outfit with a boho purse that doesn't overshadow your outfit and silver jewelry.
Sharara suits have been super trending pieces on the modern Indian traditional fashion platform. Be it a bandhani style sharara or a pastel-colored, if you have one, you need to flaunt it this Diwali. Your favorite silver juttis and matching bangles will only elevate your look.
Florals can never go wrong. They can light up any occasion by just the patterns and the colors that they contain. Accessorize your floral suit with silver jewelry and for footwear, opt for your nude mules or even slides.
Sarees: Is there any festival that's complete without you adorning the 6-yard beauty? The versatility of a saree is not comparable to any other piece of clothing, not to forget that it screams elegance!
Breathable, light, and crisp cotton sarees never fail to amaze you! Whether it's something as simple and elegant as the tant saree or as colorful as the bandhani.
Silk sarees are for when you want to attend the Diwali taash party at your neighbor's house. Be it Assam, kanjeevaram, or Pashmina silk sarees, if you've got it, you wear it! They look just so subtle and sophisticated!
With the huge floral patterns and pastel hues, these can be your go-to look this year for Diwali. Accessorize with glass or stoned jewelry matching your saree.
If it's subtlety you're looking for, embroidered sarees might just be it. A mid-sized border and stonework, beadwork, or something like that make it a wise choice.
Lehengas: Lehengas too are an option if you want to try something different this Diwali. From prints to motifs to embroideries, lehengas can make you feel happy about yourself!
Anything floral is a beaut. If you have a lehenga that's been in your wardrobe for a long time because you didn't know where you would wear it again, take it out this Diwali. Pair the skirt with a crop top and it will not look extra.
Block print lehengas
If you're a minimalist, block print lehengas are saviors! Pair yours with an experimental blouse or a cami to give it a touch of your own.
Being a festival of lights, anything you wear will light up the air around you. You don't have to be super confused because I've got you covered!
