Diwali is just around the corner and it is one of the most celebrated festivals in India. Different communities have different reasons for celebrating this day.
But you know what’s common for all the communities? – Decking Up. Ahem, I mean Dressing Up. Besides, it’s also one of those festivals where we get a sweet tooth. I make sure I have all the laddoos and kaju katli. What about you?
Does dressing up require a lot of effort? Yes, it does! But I have listed a couple of clothing and accessories which will simplify your search.
Style Tips for Diwali- Clothing, Jewellery, Hairstyles & Shoes
Speaking of clothing, you have a bunch of things to experiment this Diwali. The things that come to our mind are Skirts or palazzo pants or Culottes. They are very much on trend right now. Apart from waist length upper wear, you can also style them with spaghetti tops. But pairing up these bottom wear with Anarkali suits always look very chic and elegant. However, if you aren’t an anarkali person, you can always go for long ethnic kurtis.
Sari is one dress that can be a choice of clothing for any festival. However, there are ways to pep up the normal sari. There are varieties of blouse options like turtleneck or back-less to start with. You can also wear a round neck with quarter sleeves, off shoulder, halter, etc.
The most unusual way of putting on a sari is with pants and a jacket. You can give it a try and let us know how things worked out for you.
If you are not much into experimenting and mix-and-match, you can go for regular Chanya Choli as the markets would be flooded with them in your favoured design and budget.
If you don’t have a very happening outfit planned for Diwali, you can make up for it with jewellery. You can either wear big junk jewellery like heavy necklace, heavy danglers or cuffs. You can also wear diamonds and gold jewellery as well.
However, you are wearing a very heavy ethnic dress, wear minimum jewellery. You can go with either a pair of studs or a simple pendant or plain bangles.
Usually, there’s some activity or the other going on at Diwali parties or get together. The most common one is keeping the hair off your face. For this, you can tie up your hair into bun or braid. But, you also have the option of doing a half-up half-down hair do for your dress.
Shoes are an important part of our attire. There are typical Rajasthani Jutis which can be worn with their traditional dresses. Besides, you can always team up with your usual Stilettos, Block Heals and Wedges. You can also experiment with glittery shoes as Diwali is all about dazzling and sparkling.
And remember, you don’t dress up for Diwali. You deck up!
