Last minute tips to brighten up your style this Diwali
It’s that time of the year….time for new clothes…sweets…diyas…rangolis…and the crackers. Most of you would already be on with your preparations from buying gifts to playing cards to of course SHOPPING. After all the wandering around if you are still thinking what to wear, we have few last minute tips for you to brighten up your style this Diwali.
For the Ladies – Accessorise your Churidar Kameez
Bored of the usual flowing silhouettes, try the chic look. Dress in a bright churidar kameez and accessorise it with heavy chand balis (studded round earrings) which are very much in vogue! When it comes to choosing the colors; go for the neon colors like pink, blue or green. Churidaars teamed with heeled stilettos also add to the charm. Put on light make up with a dash of Kohl, light lip-gloss and slightly darker eye shadow for smokey eyes and try a different hairstyle.
The Anarkali Ahoy for a royal look
Anarkalis are in trend again but with variations in length, flair, cut, embroidery and neck designs. Velvet appliqué, floral motifs and crystals are giving a welcome twist. Knee length anarkalis look chic with fitted churidars. For a different look try anarkali with ethnic jackets. They can be worn with heavy jewellery and high heels or can be flaunted with less formality with minimal accessories and maybe without a stole. Mojaris are also a good match with the anarkalis. Try top knots for the hair.
The Sensuous Saree with a designer blouse
Pick a bright colored sari, drape it over the shoulder and get that million-dollar look. The trend of a simple saree in a lively colour teamed with creatively designed blouses is universal and everlasting. The Chinese collared blouse and the boat neck shaped blouses with half sleeves are very much in trend this season. Colours like gold, red, fuchsia and orange in net and chiffon are good options. Also Saris with fishtail flare are a rage these days, combine it with a sexy choli with tassels at the back. Accessorize with a gorgeous kundan bracelet and lovely jhumkas and don’t forget to wear braided hair.
Funky Fusion with tribal jewellery
Give your attire a twist by going for fusion dressing. Team up a structured kurta or a traditional choli with cigarette pants, dhoti pants or palazzo pants. You can also pick up a long skirt and a spaghetti top, which will go with a pigtail plait. Remember to go for dramatic make up as well to complete the look. Smoky eyes can accentuate your face and add a chic look to your attire. Oxidized and tribal jewelry seamlessly go with this look too.
For the Men – Fusion of Kurta and Jeans
Make a fusion of ethnic and western by pairing a kurta with jeans. Choose from silk, khadi or cotton whatever you are comfortable in. Finish off with Kohlapuri chappals to look effortlessly smart and casual.
Get adventurous with traditional Dhoti – Kurta
Get adventurous as you dress traditionally by donning dhoti and kurta. Make the fashionably comfortable combination in silk matched with Kohlapuri chappals and then, you are all set to win hearts.
The Royal Bandhgalas
Yes the bandhgalas are the new Indian Tux! The staple wear of Rajasthan’s aristocracy, the bandhgala makes every Indian man look regal. Pair it up with a jodhpuri pant or with a kurta pyjama and camel skin jootis and grab all the attention.
The classy combination of Kurta & Churidar
Get all classy with the kurta and churidar. It’s an easy to wear, no-fuss and quite flattering look when worn right. If churidars are not your thing then go for a pyjama instead. Try a silk kurta and experiment with a stole wrapped up in Bollywood style.
As you pick your look, keep in mind that you must stay safe and absolutely avoid dresses that absorb heat quickly.
Amidst the luminous fireworks and glowing diyas, get ready to dazzle. Get going for this festive season armed with these feisty fashion trends and make a stunning impression on your friends and family this Diwali!!
