Hello beautiful ladies!
Diwali is just a few days away and my preparations have reached to its final stage. I have already decided my hairstyle and makeup. Only the outfit is still undecided as I am stuck between a yellow long anarkali and a warm-red churidaar kurta. I would decide it in a day or two☺ ☺. Today I have come up with a few inspirations that would help you to find your diwali outfit (if you are confused like me you will need this one☺). In this particular occasion of Deepavali most of us prefer traditional outfits. That is why the main theme of these ideas is also Bollywood inspired ethnic and fusion wears. To find out more on them read on.
1. This regal layered long anarkali will be enough to catch everyone’s attention. Style it with Jhumkis and see the difference yourself.
2. One of my favourite traditional outfits is lightweight churidaar or salwar with phulkari dupatta. Phulkari jacket-style blouses are another favourite of mine.
3. Transform yourself into a sizzling hot patakha with net saree with a heavy border.
4. This classic churidaar-kurta is a great choice to look simple yet gorgeous.
5. If you have an old heavy-work silk saree then fear not! Bring out your artist-self and transform it into a lovely lehenga-saree.
6. Do you get self-conscious with too much glitter in your outfit? Try this kind of understated palazzo suit and you won’t regret. Accessorize yourself with oxidised silver junk jewelleries. A heavy neckpiece and a few bangles would be good choice.
7. These tribal-printed patola sarees look good on everyone of every age. Here also you will need some statement pieces like the previous one.
8. Have you considered asymmetrical long kurti with a pencil churidaar? If not, then shed a look at the leftmost picture in the collage below and you will find your inspiration instantly!
9. If you think long anarkalis or lehengas would be too loud then try gown-style fusion dress like the picture in the middle. Brass jewellery would go best with this kind of silk gowns.
10. You can customize your own maxi dress for this diwali combining a brocade or opera bottom with a solid colour spaghetti top.
11. Look how gorgeous the parrot green silk looks! If you want to look naturally beautiful; these kinds of solid colour sarees are your saviour. Make a messy bun and wear a nice big bindi and you are good to go for the daytime occasions and pujas. For the night look just intensify your makeup and flaunt your natural hair.
12. Embroidered chiffon churidaar suits like this are my all time favourite because it looks good on almost everyone and can be used in many small occasions too. If you can’t decide what to wear; grab this and you are sorted☺.
13. Dhoti style dresses would be a great choice for western-wear lovers who want to add a traditional touch to their diwali evening-party outfit. Here are a few ways you can style your dhoti-dress with.
14. Sequinned georgette sarees never go out of fashion. They are easy to manage and look elegant as eveningwear.
15. If you have toned up your body with regular workouts then lace crop tops would look good on you. You can wear them as blouse for your saree or lehenga; you can even wear them with long skirts as shown in here.
16. Floor-length asymmetrical anarkali suits make you look taller and slimmer as well. Style this with dangle-and-drop earrings and asymmetric oxidised metal bangles to refashion it a bit.
17. Rock your diwali evening with a lightweight lehenga. Keep the blouse and dupatta understated and go for sequins or patchworks for the skirt. Balance your look with a heavy earring or a junk tribal neckpiece and you will look fabulous☺.
