It’s time to get out of your pyjamas, shed your post-Puja blues and transform into a fashionista for Diwali celebrations. Instead of going the lehenga/sari/kurta way, why not try something that marries Indian with contemporary? Take a look at these festive fits that will make you shine bright this Diwali…
What better than to sport an easy-breezy kaftan with the bright colour pop of kantha work? This piece marries the simplicity of a kaftan with the craftsmanship of Bengal. The patchwork is funky and makes for a great pick this festive season. Pair it with jhumkas and sneakers, and strut in style.
Go down the OTT outfit route with this satin draped skirt and top set. The majestic violet colour makes the drapes of the outfit shine bright. The skirt adds volume to the look while also giving it shape and structure. The zari work on the top adds the festive touch, making it a great ensemble.
Go down the traditional route this Diwali with a Mekhela Chador that takes the Assamese tradition and juxtaposes it with the freshness of textile. Pick from a wide variety of designs in silk and chanderi that showcase traditional artwork like kantha and batik too. Not only is it easier to drape than a sari, but is also a refreshing way to adorn traditional wear.
Get the best of both worlds — the ease of pants and the drapes of saris — with this creation. The fall of this outfit is just like a sari, thanks to the clever draping of the fabric, which creates an optical illusion making it seem like draped six yards of fabric. They’re easy to wear and move around in, making sure you can be the social butterfly at all your Diwali parties.
Spotlight Indian craftsmanship along with the chic-ness of a co-ord set this festive season. This Leheriya tie-dye set is vibrant and oh-so-quirky! The psychedelic print is so much fun to style, and the best part is you can style each piece of the co-ord separately too.
A V-neck for some oomph and an Anarkali to twirl around in? Sign us up! This tangerine suit has delicate gold accents all over, which are the perfect colours for this festival. Pair it with gold or brass accessories and juttis, and you’re party ready.
Amp up the quirk quotient of your festive fits with this patchwork dress. The minimalist design of this outfit is a whole vibe and the multi-coloured patchwork adds in the vibrancy that your outfits need this season. Pair it with heels and a sling bag, and party the night away.
