Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights and its importance is strongly reflected in the 5,000 different types of celebrations taking place all over the globe. The celebrations start with Dhan teras, followed by Roop Choudas, Laxmi Pujan, Padwa, and finally Bhai Dooj. For everybody, these five days of celebration have different significance. For some, it is a time to clean the whole mess of the house, it is a week of holiday from work, for some it is a week of holiday from college or work, for some it is a time to visit your hometown, for some it is the festival to eat lots of sweets, for some, it is the festival to spend time with loved ones and for some, it is a festival to look our best in our best traditional outfits. During these five days of festivities, we raid our wardrobes for ethnic style clothing to dress our best and look fashionable for social media-worthy posts. Therefore, we have curated some not-so-regular outfits for you to try and get out of your comfort zone.
A saree is the epitome of grace in India. It is a piece of clothing that binds all the people with different traditions and cultures through threads of elegance in India. Even in the 21st century, the go-to attire for traditional functions is a saree. It is the first choice for ethnic-style clothing. Almost every state of India has its kind of saree delivered from a specific fabric and type of weaving. The frill style ruffled saree is a modern twist to ethnic saree and a perfect piece of clothing to don for Diwali celebrations. Additionally, these are much easier to carry than the ethnic ones, allowing us to enjoy the festivities a whole lot better. Also, these are the best to make a fashion statement. Ruffled sarees with frills at pallus with pastel shades and floral patterns are trending fashion outfits for this Diwali. The outfit with chokers or heavy earrings and a maang tikka.
Indo-Western Lehenga Choli with Jacket
Lehenga choli is another outfit worn by women in India for traditional functions, be it for poojas or the wedding season. But wearing a lehenga choli with a dupatta is a very common outfit worn for many years. A modern twist to add to this traditional outfit is to ditch the dupatta and instead replace it with a jacket. This indo-western lehenga choli with a jacket in fabrics like cotton, silk, and satin adds jazz to the look. This ensemble makes the outfit more free and comfortable along with being perfect for the festivities of Diwali.
Adding belts to these outfits gives a more modern and quirky finish to the Indo-Western outfit. One can pair this outfit with heavy earrings and a statement clutch.
There is no denying that kurtas hold an extensive place in our ethnic wardrobes. But most of us rely on just Anarkali kurtas or A-line kurtas instead of experimenting. So, if you want to try something new out of your comfort zone, then the angrakha kurta is the go-to garment. An angrakha kurta is a wrap-style top featuring an overlap that is tied either to the left or right shoulder or waist with strings. It is a versatile garment that can be paired with a myriad of bottoms like straight-legged pants, palazzos, or a lehenga skirt depending on the length of the angrakha.
Crop Top and Palazzo Pants
A crop top paired with palazzo pants is another indo-western outfit that is in trend for Diwali 2021. This style is great for people who would like to give a more edgy and bold look to their ethnic style and enjoy Diwali celebrations without any uneasiness due to their clothes. One can also pair this outfit with a shrug and a belt giving it a more fancy look. Also, you can never go wrong with crop tops having sequined embroidery and plain wide-leg palazzo pants. Selecting crop tops and palazzo pants with contrasting colors will give the outfit a more modern and vibrant look.
Puffy Sleeved Blouse
The puff sleeves reentered the fashion world in 2018 right from the ’80s and ever since they have managed to stay in the fashion game. Puffy sleeves add volume to the outfit and there is no better way to incorporate puffed sleeves blouses into the traditional attire than by pairing them with sarees or skirts.
Deep V-neck puffed-sleeved blouses with a frilled ruffle saree accessorized with heavy earrings, a statement clutch, and traditional heels or flats are an excellent outfit for Diwali. Puffed sleeve blouses can also be styled with skirts in a similar way to get a bold and fashionable look for the Diwali festivities.
The most important factor in choosing outfits for Diwali festivities is their comfiness. If an outfit is uncomfortable, then there is no way that you will be able to carry the outfit with elegance. You’ll also not be able to enjoy the festival completely. Pairing the outfits with the right accessories is also necessary to make the overall look as fashionable as possible. All the ethnic styles with floral patterns with vibrant and pastel shades are a great choice of outfit for Diwali. Pairing your outfits with heavy earrings, statement clutch, and heels makes a picture-perfect outfit for social media posts.
