When you look at a ran­goli or the gar­land out­side your door, the first thing you no­tice is the burst of colours that adds to your cel­e­bra­tion. Ac­cord­ing to fash­ion de­signer duo, Udit Tosh­ni­wal and Aye­sha Kalyani­walla, the colour yel­low or or­ange is as­so­ci­ated with the colour of turmeric and is con­sid­ered aus­pi­cious. Sim­i­lary, like yel­low, there are a num­ber of colours that make their way in our wardrobe dur­ing Di­wali. Here are a few op­tions you could try out:

■ Plum: The colour com­pli­ments the In­dian skin tone and in­stead of us­ing the con­ven­tional red or ma­roon, one can go for plum in­stead. A plum kurta with beige or gold pants can be a per­fect Di­wali look.

■ Pas­tel shades: If you do not like loud or bold colours, then opt for pas­tel colours for a soft sub­tle look. Team the pas­tels with light gold or shim­mer to com­plete the look.

■ Navy blue: If it’s a Di­wali card party, then shades of navy blue for the evening will do the trick. Navy blue kurta with an off white bot­tom and a light gold du­patta will steal the show.

■ Pink: For a Di­wali lunch, you may like to opt for a sim­ple look. In that case, you can try tone on tone with a blush or nude pink. Men can opt for a sal­mon coloured kurta.
