FESTIVITY OF COLOURS
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.
