Dress your festive best
October 30, 2016, 10:38 am

Festivities are all about spending time with your closed ones, eating good food and looking your best. To stand out this festive season, try a hand-woven sari like chanderi or opt for a beautiful chikankari kurta with jeans to keep your fashion game on point. Look amazing this Diwali by opting for colors like emerald and sapphire or go for pale hues with embellishments and pastel to make a style statement.

Here are some tips from the experts for a sassy makeover this Diwali.

Bring back your wedding finery: Create looks that are unique yet pocket friendly. That wedding lehenga that you spent so much on is probably gathering dust in an old trunk. Mix a choli from your wedding ensemble with a long ethnic skirt in one colour and a simple stole to bring out the stylist in you. Your best picks are rich and glamorous fabrics like velvet or brocade as they go best with bright colors. Throw on a pair of chunky earrings to complete the look.

Do the unexpected: While Diwali is all about looking colorful and bright, there are many who believe that a subtle look can be attractive and not always boring. This is particularly true for sarees in colors of dusty pinks, beige or toasted almond, and the colors stand out if you experiment with fabrics like silk, net and velvet that emphasize the finesse of the occasion. Alternatively, you can also pair your jeans with a short chikankari kurta in pink, green or blue, giving out chic vibes this festive season. Add on a vibrant silk stole and a huge pair of silver earrings to your ensemble to appear totally fashionable.

For those interested in keeping things bright, contrast and layers are the in-thing this season. Various pieces of your outfit should be in complementing colours — like if you are opting for a lehenga for a first Diwali celebration after your wedding — you can team up a yellow choli, green lehenga and a red dupatta.

Old is gold: Fish out your old sari from your cupboard, drape it into a dhoti and wear your favourite noodle strap top. Wear big bangles and accessories with heavy neck pieces for a stunning look. To appear more casual, you can also experiment with colors like lilac or icy-blue, or tangerine, amber, and teal or combine vintage grey with sun-yellow as the combo will create a striking contrast.
