1)     Traditional Ensemble for Diwali

Diwali is a once a year affair but one wants to create memorable experiences.

On the festival of lights, this year put your best foot forward in a traditional ensemble. Wear that beautiful Paithani Saree your mother got for you and pair with the beautiful nathini (nose ring) or wear the gorgeous Salwar Kameez and put on some matching jewelry which will put others to envy.


2)     That's the way -Fusion-way!

If traditional ain’t your oojah, go the fusion way! Blend Indian and western wear.

For men in the house- don the denim you love and the pair it with a Nehru jacket or a Bandhgala with a sexy shirt.

For the ladies in the house- Get into a traditional embroidery skirt with simple and yet chic shirt, accessorize it and make all the diyas flicker!

3)     The Colors Palate

Colors operate the best irrespective of fashion, gaieties, and styles. Sport a spectrum of colors; plan a special color- dress code for all occasions.

Choose Scarlet Red for Laxmi Pooja, hues of indigo for Bhaidooj, etc. Dress up in multicolored prints and tone down with a perfect bracelet-watch complete the look. Dress to kill (metaphorically!)

4)     Footwear Advice

Good footwear can give your outfit a new dimension. It is the most important part of your ensemble! Footwear really encompasses a person’s understanding of style and fashion.

Go with a pair of gorgeous Punjabi Jutti or Kolhapuri chappals. You can wear nice flip-flops which are stylish and comfortable, decked with designs and glittery stones.

Now wear heels that are comfortable, we advise you to avoid stilettos as they may fret with your outfit prompting discomfort.


5)     Jewelry

Ornaments enhance an individual’s overall appearance. A jewelry that pairs well with your attire and footwear is of much importance.

If your dress it traditional with intense colors wear a statement piece of jewelry like a heavy necklace (so many options are available in oxidized metals).

The trick is to wear minimal jewelry and let it do wonders. Mix n match a pair funky junk jewelry with classic pieces and traditional jewelry with a fusion wear. Go Boho-chic!


6)     Plan a Theme

So if you are planning to organize a fun and trendy Diwali party, go bonkers on color palate. Embellished skirts, statement jewelry along with classic crop tops and stylized jackers will make your party nothing short of a Bollywood movie!

And if it is a sush affair, with light music and more of a family get-together- then long designer kurti with comfortable palazzos with pastels colors, which would guarantee comfort for long.

Wear your traditional best if the occasion is about offering pooja and worshipping the deity.

7)     T- Three- 'The Tribal Trend’

Tribal trend brings out a wilder and carefree side of your personality. Don a semi-tribal attire, wear a nose ring, or a more rebellious septum rings and carry it your sexy outfits with fabulous touches like Kaftans, blouses, skirts, tunics with rich, fresh Indian colors.


8)     Dress Fit

It is very crucial to wear a cut that fits you well and fabrics that drape you well and accentuates the curves of your body. Know your body type and chose a dress that makes you look and feel gorgeous. Look picture perfect!

9)     Unconventional is In

Brilliant colors go really well with all festivities. Diwali should be celebrated wearing eye-catching colors. Go for unique/offbeat colors like tangerine, fuchsia, red and violet, neon or wine red which on the contrarily you wouldn’t wear!

10)  Make-up

Blushed cheeks, winged liner, hydrated and glowing skin, and gorgeous flowing hair is what will make all set for a party ready. For lips go for a bold shade of lipstick, like ruby red or corals and if planning t to wear a bright outfit, pick a subtle tone like a rich pink or a sheer nude lip color.

So, these were some tips and tricks that all of can keep in mind in order to steal the show. Remember to make heads turn, hearts melt and put your Instagram accounts on FIRE! Eat to your heart's content, bond with your friends and family and enjoy the festivals of lights!
