Atrue fash­ion­ista be­lieves in script­ing her own fash­ion story. While she is aware of what’s in fash­ion, she knows how to con­fi­dently tweak trends to suit her style. The fes­tiv­i­ties are al­ready upon us, and if you, too, don’t want to look like ev­ery­one’s dop­pel­ganger in those drown­ing, em­bel­lished lehen­gas and tons of blind­ing jew­ellery, here’s some refreshing style in­spi­ra­tion for you. The key to stand out in a swamp of bling is to be­lieve in re­straint. When in doubt, go sub­tle. Sub­tle is al­ways stylish — when wear­ing a heav­ily em­bel­lished lehenga, go for ei­ther the ear­rings or the neck­piece or just a strik­ing nath or passa. Or you can com­pletely skip jew­ellery and team your out­fit with real flow­ers to add a touch of in­no­cence and fresh­ness.

Here are a few foolproof ideas to help you glow to glory this fes­tive sea­son.
