Diwali is just around the corner, and so are all the headaches that come with shopping for the festival and all the parties that go with it. What to wear to all the different days to Diwali, without repeating your outfits, is a difficult choice. What one must keep in mind is that the wedding season usually follows the festival of Diwali, and though you shouldn’t repeat outfits during Diwali festivities, after a month, they can be repeated in the wedding season. Hence, shopping for a few different outfits and apparels at the same time will enable you achieve this. To know what kind of different outfits you should own, read on.
More of a relaxed outfit, it is perfect for a Diwali party with friends. It is also easier to lounge around in, during the day so you’re never caught off-guard, when you have relatives or friends come over all of a sudden. You can even style an old pair of denims with a formal- looking kurta, it is a great fusion look. Do try the long kurta, that reaches down to your knees, if you’re pairing it with denims. Also, make sure your denims are neither ripped nor low-waist.
Waistcoats are all the rage these days! From our globe-trotting PM to fashionistas on the runway, everyone is donning this stylish apparel. Waistcoats are great to add a bit of class to a plain look. They look formal enough to wear to your office Diwali party, and cool enough to wear it to the after-party too. A waistcoat is great in case you want to amp up your kurta-pajama look. Just by putting it on, you can easily transform it from a daytime look to a night-time trend! Try to get a waistcoat in neutral colours like brown or indigo, so that it can be paired with different outfits.
