Diwali is back to drench us all in the fervour of lights, joy and zeal. It's that time when the entire nation dazzles with lights and sparkle of diyas and candles. But it is also the time when you have to dress up in your traditional best. After all, dressing up in ethnic has its own magic. Finding an apt ethnic ensemble to make you stand a class apart from others can be quite a task.
So, we bring to you some amazing ideas from none other than the fashion connoisseurs themselves. Here are some inspiring outfit ideas from fashion bloggers, you can take cue from to uplift your ethnic wear game this Diwali.
THERE IS A COMMON PERCEPTION THAT SHARARARS HAVE TO BE HEAVILY EMBELLISHED, LIKE THE ONE WE SAW IN CUTIE PIE SONG. FEEL FREE TO BREAK THAT NOTION AND GO LIGHT WITH YOUR SHARARA .
The Quintessential Anarkali:
It might sound a bit clichéd but you can always rely on anarkali suits for any festive occasion. They are ethnic, chic, vibrant and go very well with the festive vibes. The very fact that they are easily available in variety of fabric and work, makes them a fine kind of clothing for women of all sizes and shapes. Wearing this stunning orange
anarkali from Kylee by Ruchi Jain, Surbhi looks jaw-droppingly beautiful. Take cue from her and do not shy away from opting unusual shades. And by any chance, if you have been thinking that anarkalis are a passé, then mind you, this trend is still very much in and is here to stay.
Go Fab and Chic with Shararas:
Shararas were a much loved style statement in yesteryears and the good news is, they are back yet again to up your fashion game. So, what better than flaunting a sharara this festive season. You can take cue from fashion blogger Surbhi Suri as she dons a very chic sharara suit from Ashpri.
There is a common perception that shararars have to be heavily embellished, like the one we saw in the ‘Cutie Pie’ song from Ae dil hai
mushkil. Feel free to break that notion and go light with your sharara and furthermore glam your ethnic wear with trendy off-theshoulder or cold shoulder sleeves.
Also, rather than going bright this season, celebrate the festival of lights with much-in-vogue pastel hues. They are the latest definition of classy and elegant. Minimal make-up with nude lips go well with pastel hues.
Give a Quirky Twist to Sari:
Keep your comfort intact this Diwali and wear a sari in the most sassiest way ever. Wear a plain tee or a crop top with your most comfortable pair of denim or tights and drape your sari over it. That's it! No hassle of petticoat, nothing! Only you, sari and comfort! Could sari be more convenient?
"If you aren't a big fan of ethnic wear but have to wear it because Diwali, the big festivity season is right around the corner try going for a twist. Personally, I love wearing saris and when I am running late or I want my comfort zone to be intact, I experiment with the drapes and this one right here tops my list! So the next time you are sceptical about wearing a sari experiment with it just the way I do," says fashion blogger Nikita Datta.
