You have put some efforts in styling because Diwali comes once in a year and it’s all the worth. Upgrade your fashion game for your best look on auspicious occasion of Diwali. I know the idea of going out clueless to shop ethnic outfit may give you nightmares and also you won’t like the outfit your mom shopped for you. Congratulations you have landed on the page for the complete Diwali styling guide.
Ethnic Diwali Outfits
This occasion is not about styling yourself with denim and t-shirt, it’s a very special occasion and thus you should opt for Indian ethnic. I know you may not be comfortable carrying it all day as you carry casuals but Diwali is no doubt the festival you can adjust. Styling solid coloured silk kurta with light shades of pajama is the classic outfit idea you can opt for. If you don’t want to go the regular look style your kurta with dhoti pants for stylish look. One colour pathani is the evergreen look for any occasion. If you want to experiment with your ethnic look go for good colour contrast of your pathani’s top and bottom wear. Never style your ethnic outfit with sneakers or flip flops as mojaris and juttis is the right footwear to be styled.
Indo-Western Diwali Outfits
If you don’t want to show yourself at the party in complete ethnic wear than Indo-western is the best option for you. Go for Nehru Jacket on shirt and trouser but make sure the colour compliments each other. Nehru jacket with solid colour shirt is the best combination. You can style your nehru with jeans to keep it more casual and classy. You can also style your kurta with denim to keep it casual yet ethnic. Go for loafers or dress shoes as they will make you stand out in crowd.
Minimal Diwali Outfits
Not everyone likes to be dressed, some like simple and minimal looks. For those who don’t want to go for above mentioned outfits but still want to make up for a celebration in best look try out some of these ideas. Style your chinese collar shirts with good shade of chinos or trouser. While shopping, try to look for shirts with some Indian ethnic prints or regular printed shirts to maintain your Diwali look. Make sure you don’t wear too formal outfit that it seems you are going for an interview. Style your outfit with suitable footwear to complete your look.
Tips for Diwali Styling
- Never go for a Diwali party in ripped jeans and t-shirt as it is too casual for the occasion.
- Make sure your kurta has a good neckline and good fit as it enhances the look.
- Go for bold colours like red, orange, green, blue or yellow while styling yourself.
- Don’t wear too skinny outfit as it can break your ethnic look.
- Don’t over accessorize yourself with unwanted accessories. A watch is enough to flatter your style.
Never show to a party empty handed, it leaves a bad impression. Diwali being a festival of joy and happiness you should carry some gifts with you.
