The Diya’s are being replaced by beautiful scented candles, while the mithais have been replaced by chocolates. This Diwali, why not replace the traditional saris and salwar kameez with something more interesting? It’s ethnic, yet modern…contemporary, yet traditional.
This Diwali, why not replace the traditional saris or salwar kameez with something more interesting?
Flaunt the skirt
Twirl, twirl, and the skirt will replace your salwar kameez suit. A long, flowing skirt is our recommendation. Also, embroidered skirts are stunning. The skirt can be paired with either a short or long kurti. This is a trend that is very much in fashion right now. You can go bold and pair the skirt with a crop or strapless top.
Enjoy your pants
Since a few years, Palazzo pants are really in fashion. It’s a trend to pair them with Western-styled tops like spaghettis or other palazzo pants. Many fashionistas today are pairing palazzo pants and long, knee-length Kurtis. This marriage is a perfect example of ‘comfort meets fashion’. You can also pair long kurtis with capris or a variety of ankle-length trousers.
Scene of Jeans
You are someone who literally lives in jeans and insists that you wear them for Diwali, much to the dismay of your mother! You can do it! To give your jeans that Indian touch, pair them with a kurti or a short kurti. The stole replaces your dupatta. And you can even smile at your mom’s frown! Avoid ripped jeans and those with crazy patchwork.
Accessories, et al
Wearing ethnic jewelry is the best and fastest way to give any Western outfit an Indian feel. You can choose from chunky pieces, gold or oxidized tones, dangling numbers, beads, and many other options. You can also make magic with a bind. It doesn’t have to be flashy or make you look like a Christmas tree. It should be done elegantly and intelligently.
Modes and Kolhapur chappals are another way to give an Indian vibe. Today’s mojdis or Kolpapuri chappals are available in many bright colors as well as exciting patterns and designs. You can also add an anklet to complete the look.
