With Diwali just around the corner, it’s time to get you festive glam on. Hindu festival Diwali is one of the biggest celebrations of the year filled with lights, joy, happiness, and all kinds of positive vibes. Diwali as a festival is the apt depiction of India’s rich culture, tradition, and heritage. The incredible five days of the grand celebration of Diwali consists of DhanTeras, Choti Diwali (Kali Chaudas), Diwali evening, Bestu Varas (New Year), and Bhai Dooj. The excitement for these five days of massive celebration is in every Indian all around the world. From cleaning every corner of our home, buying gifts and sweets to planning food, decor, and Diwali special dresses for the five days, Diwali is one of the most anticipated times of the year. It is one time in the year when everyone is thrilled to put their best ethnic outfit out on the “social-gram.”
Diwali comes with a lot of celebration, and with these hectic schedules, it sometimes becomes challenging to get the perfect outfit ready. Getting a perfect look for the right occasion is a sport that requires constant effort to keep up with the trends, a lot of planning, and flawless execution of those planned outfits.
However, you do not need to worry. You are in the right place. We have the best ideas for the latest dress for Diwali. Here is your foolproof guide to rock each day of Diwali with your finest outfits.
Diwali is the epitome of cultural and traditional vibes. Therefore, embracing the festive vibes with a beautiful and elegant anarkalis or traditional salwar suit paired with heavy golden jhumkas and the perfect matching sandals should be one of your first choices. Also, why choose a basic outfit when you can glam it up with heavy Indian ethnic wear. You can also opt for a beautiful sleeveless Kurti with solid color Patiala and charming jhuti to go with them.
What speaks of tradition more than an elegant set of lehenga, which has zari work all over it with heavy mirror-work or embroidered dupatta paired with the right amount of jewelry and accessories. You can always experiment with your makeup to lighten or brighten the tone of your vibe and look.
Let’s accept the fact that 2020 has changed our lifestyle to a certain extent that now even simple tasks like grocery and norms of large celebrations of festivities have been redefined. This year, celebrating Diwali while following all the safety guidelines should be your topmost priority. But why do it in an old-fashioned way when you can jazz it up by getting matching masks to your beautiful outfit? There are several different collections of masks with intricate designs on them. Various stores have also started designing outfits with their matching masks.
Sanitizers have become essential, but with a lack of pockets in Indian outfits, the best solution is to carry little potli bags. Potli bags are mainly made up of silk and have embroidery and zari work on them, making it a perfect accessory to carry. Not to forget, you can always carry your lipstick and mobile phones for the ideal festive selfie.
We all know that the love of an Indian woman for sarees is impeccable, and someone rightly said Sarees are 6 yards of pure elegance. Sarees are timeless and speak charmingly like nothing else. The simplest saree can give you an enchanted look. So experiment with any beautiful saree that has a beautiful bordered embroidery or elegant patchwork from mum’s cupboard and drape it gracefully.
For some of you, handling sarees could be too much, but not to worry, there are various saree palazzos to give you a look and feel of a traditional saree but at the same time offer comfort and ease of palazzos. Sarees can always be styled with beautiful earrings, a clutch bag to go with them, and a pair of comfortable wedges or chappals to amp up your Diwali dressing style.
Indo western outfits for Diwali is a very safe and stylish choice. If you enjoy experimenting with bottom wears, then ditch the lehenga and stick to your classic pants. You can pair your shararas, churidars, or cigarette pants with short Kurti or with long front slit Kurtis. Pair them with a statement earring and a bold lip, and you are ready to slay this festive season.
Going into western also gives you the option of pairing your statement jackets. Floor-length heavy embellished jackets paired up with cigarette pants will give an impactful style statement. A plain Kurti can also be paired up with heavy embroidery work jackets.
In the latest instances, one of the most famous trends that have made a comeback is the Palazzos Pants. It is one of the new dress style for Diwali. Palazzos are a suitable mixture of comfort and style. Hugely famous in the 60s and 70s, it’s easy to say why every person loves them now.
They’re stylish, snug, and principally versatile, so in case you are wondering whether or not Palazzos are for you, we say, take a leap of faith and give them a try. Palazzo pants are fitted at the top and flared at the ankles, thus offering a sleek flare on your figure. This freestyling may be highly conservative. There’s a wealth of desirable options to figure out how to style palazzo pants, and all of it relies upon the event and the look you wish to achieve. For a more prominent festive appearance, you may pair a heavy Kurti and golden palazzos. You can pair them up with high heels or strappy sandals. Maang tikka, as an accent, goes amazingly with palazzos.
We have always been told how festivals demand bling and bright colors, but those were past days. If you are someone who keeps it simple and chic, pastels should be your choice. Pastel colors radiate immense royalty. Colors like dusty pink, baby blue, and pista green are dreamy, neither pale nor flashy. Pastel colors never go out of fashion; they have a timeless appeal that can allow you to wear them again and again on various other occasions too.
They are beautiful and easy to pair with other colors and prints. Even the oddest of odd combinations create statement pieces that are not too lurid. This color trend is best suited with silver thread embroidery or golden ivory earrings and matching golden footwear and embellishments. You can style a simple pastel salwar suit or even a pastel kurta with bold lipstick and heavy jewelry.
Maxi skirts are back in trend, and we can’t be happier! Skirts can be one of the best Diwali party outfit. Wearing a multi-layered long skirt and roaming around like a princess makes every woman feel graceful and confident. A frill skirt is a must-have in your wardrobe. To add glitz and glamour, pair this skirt with a shimmering top, in ivory or rose gold with sequins. Also, if you are confident enough, tuck in a plain satin shirt into a high-waist floral skirt. Add more elegance to this look with a beautiful pair of chand balis and heels to look tall and confident. Tie your hair in a perfectly neat bun with some accessories for the perfect elegant look, or you can keep your hair down and add some soft curls to the ends. Stick to monochromatic themed makeup for eyes and lipstick if your outfit is heavy and well accessorized.
On festive occasions, jewelry can be your best friend. Styling a simple outfit with heavy jewelry or grand outfits with minimal jewelry is the way to go. When it comes to earrings, there are several options like classic jhumkas, pearl tops, diamond studs, or beautiful pairs of chand balis. The latest trend is wearing silver jewelry as they give your outfit a very raw look. Another statement of jewelry is maang tikka. If styled elegantly, a maang tikka can make you look gorgeous. Other minimal jewelry that you can opt for is anklets and also matching bangles to go with your outfit.
