Go with the trend this Diwali
Since it's the festive season, girls are going mad about how to get dressed up. Of course, there is no harm in being a little selective; after all who does not want to stand out from the crowd. But at the same time, it is essential to make a statement that doesn't break the bank. Experts from various fields have come up to give you certain tips on how to balance your look this Diwali.
Archana Dhankar, stylist and image consultant, Fashionforroyals.com, thinks that a dress would get too simple and a lehenga or sharara would get too jazzy. Hence, she has given a few fashion and styling tips to look your best:
This Diwali go traditional with a tussar silk saree for an elegant look. Ditch the conventional old blouse and pair it with an off-shoulder crop top to go vogue this season. Try contrasting shades and make an attempt to incorporate the colours of the festival in your outfit. Pleat the pallu of your saree to show-off the statement sleeves of your off-shoulder crop top.
For footwear, jootis or kholapuris will work best. It's better to stay comfortable to be able to enjoy the raas-garba and other get-togethers. Comfortable in its feel, it's just the footwear for your insanely long party nights. Just pair this right with any of your festive outfits.
Try out palazzo or trouser pants for a cocktail party look. It can be paired with different key pieces in your wardrobe. Mix it up a little by going for a modern take on the ethnic wear and go for embroidered bottoms with a short kurti.
Set an ideal look for a perfect Indo-western outfit with a unique embellished jumpsuit. Wear one with sequin-work or ethnic embroidery and accessorize them with jhumka earrings, ethnic clutches or metal bangles.
Jewellery Designer Pooja Nigam, who owns the brand with the same name, recommends to go with the traditional Indian jewellery this time. "Nothing beats the Indian look around Diwali. A nice saree/suit with Jadau jewellery is the best combination to get into the festive mood. But if you are experimental, then you can definitely try a fusion. Contemporary pieces with Indian attires won't be a bad choice either."
Talking about the ongoing trends this season, she says, "It's best to keep it elegant with the right amount of jewellery. Ongoing trend in jewellery is of chokars. You can opt for the sleek and delicate ones. If you're wearing a heavy neckpiece then keep the earrings light or vice versa. Don't keep both the things heavy.
