The five days of Diwali celebrations are just around the corner and if you still haven’t thought about how to look your best this festive season, now is the time. Let’s bring you options to work out your new style statement this year. You don’t have to wait for the d-day to glam up yourself, a little style change every day will eventually make you feel grander on the big day.
Of course there aren’t much style options beyond Kurta and jeans for men but the magic is in styling the same old style. Come out of the age old khadi prints in stripes or a plain white kurta, this Diwali, indulge in colours. Go for fuchsia pink or blue and with the slow transitioning of autumn air you could even wear silk by the time its Diwali.
While men can go in for a little experiment with dhoti pants and cowl salwars, shunning the old denims, women can indulge in a lot more. A new trend is the Dupatta draped around the jeans to give it the traditional look while maintaining the comfort of denims. Go in for some chunky jewellery in danglers and neckpieces and belt out with something flashy.
You can even add some sequins to an old pair of jeans to give it the festive look. Get a broad patch of cotton kalamkari, adorn it with brass sequins and pair it with Punjabi mojaris to look your stylish best. To add that extra punch, for a change tie that tinker bell pajeb (anklets) to your waist belt and pocket instead of ankle.
For the big day, there’s nothing like stark red for girls and beige for guys. Try avoiding white unless you have a hint of red in it. While the girls can go in for gold jewellery instead of silver, Diwali being the night festival, guys can always throw in a stole over the kurta!
