Diwali Spl Go White in Indian Wear
Bored of donning the typical traditional saris and salwars? With designers adopting Indo-western styles in their fashion lines, we present the hottest fusion ensembles you can sport this festive season.
Flare it up
1. Long, flowing skirts are always in vogue no matter what the occasion is. Opt for ghagras with detailed zari or sequinned work in crushed silk or cotton fabrics.
2. Club your skirt with a short kurta of a similar fabric. If you want to adopt a trendier style, go for a racer back.
3. Accesorise this outfit with a chunky finger ring, and a stone-studded bracelet watch, instead of the done-to-death kadas and bangles.
4. To complete the look, carry a self-design leather purse and wear high-heeled brocade sandals. Flats are a strict no-no.
Keep it short
1. Full-length kurtis are common and unexciting for special occasions. Replace them with short ones, that are well above the knee.
2. Stock up on churidaar-style, brightcoloured leggings and pair them with printed or embroidered kurtis.
3. Wear danglers and enhance your hairdo with jewelled hair pins that match your outfit.
4. Slip on a dainty and artistic pair of flat sandals that bring attention to your feet.
1. Your ethnic attire need not be the age-old salwar with dupatta. Glamourise with a halter neck, kurta for an evening look.
2. Wear dazzling diamond and gold earrings and rings.
3. A stunning pair of diamond-studded stilletos and a matching satin clutch will complement the outfit.
Don a dhoti
1. If you’re tall and slender, notch up your style quotient by picking up voluminous dhoti pants.
2. Traditional jadau, kundan and meenakari jewellery should be teamed with this attire to lend it an ethereal feel.
3. Carry a colourful handcrafted jhola with intricate rabari embroidery or mirror patchwork, for that casual look.
4. For footwear, opt for soft and comfortable designer mojris.
1. This one’s for women who are open to experimenting with ethnic patterns in modern ensembles.
2. Feel free to mix and match when it comes to accessories. Go for out-of-the-box, quirky neck pieces and bangles.
3. Kolhapuri chappals in pastel colours go well with dresses as well as block print jumpsuits.
4. A bright-coloured sling bag with Indian designs and motifs will give it the necessary festive feel.
