Peeps, Diwali is almost here which can only mean one thing — it’s time to pull out all the stops and be the fashionista you’ve always wanted to be. Skip the boring cholis and blouses, and add some risqué to your fits. Plus, with wedding season right ‘round the corner, you can mix and match these styles for your mehendis and sangeets and reception looks!
Take cues from your favourite celebrities to style your glam ensemble…
Manish Malhotra created the vivacious bikini blouse and for that the fashion world will always be indebted. After our very own Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra flaunted it in Dostana, the trend seems to be back and how! Janhvi Kapoor looks radiant in this sequin saree and bikini blouse. If you want to add something risque to your Diwali fits, opt for a bikini blouse. Wear heels, shoulder dusters and dewy makeup — you’re all ready!
When in doubt, always go for a black ensemble. De De Pyaar De actress Rakul Singh is in this lehenga but the star of the show is her V-neck choli. This is a great pick because of its flattering neckline which pairs beautifully with the dupatta. It will add in some much-needed oomph to the look as you breeze in for your Diwali and wedding parties.
Look to Bhumi if you need fashion inspiration and motivation. This backless strappy cowl neck choli is a fashion statement that you cannot skip this festive season. The fiery number is versatile and perfect to layer with a cape or pir with an Indo-western fit as a crop top. Channel the #GlamGoddess vibes with the trending metallic tones this season.
If Srivalli sports it, who are we to say otherwise? Wearing a bandeau style choli with a flowing pant-skirt, she looks vibrant. This bandeau style top is a great way to flaunt your midriff while balancing out the proportions of your fit. Add a jacket to create more volume to your fit and be ready to party the night away.
Monochrome looks have been the talk of town all through the year so why skip it this Diwali? Star kid Shanaya shines in this Manish Malhotra number. The U-neck blouse is great for a sultry sari look, and can also be paired with a flowy skirt and shimmery translucent dupatta to transition into a lehenga ensemble. The halter neck is flattering and adds a playfulness to the whole fit.
Sometimes all you need is sugar, spice and something nice — well that is exactly what Karisma’s look is all about. The blush pink has an almost candy-like charm to it while the sweetheart neckline is a no-brainer. Not only does it elongate your neck but also creates a great silhouette making sure you look fab at all your poker parties. Classy, feminine, elegant and sexy — it ticks all the boxes.
