Hey so Diwali is just around the corner and there is so much joy and enthusiasm in India. Diwali or the festival of lights being one of the most important festivals of Hindus, holds a special place in my heart and in the hearts of many others like me. How can you just not look your best on Diwali after all. This is the time to look your ethnic best and you have so many options in the ethnic wear to make your Diwali stylish and memorable. So why not incorporate some of the latest trends in your Diwali wardrobe and make it even more stylish and trendy. Well be it silk skirts or sharara or an off-shoulder top, there are so much to try this Diwali and look outstanding. I am documenting below some of the trends which are my favourite this Diwali and some of which will definitely be a part of my Diwali wardrobe. Have a look at them and see if any one of them works for you too. I am sure some of these will become your favourites too.
Off-shoulder or Bardot blouses
Bardot blouses, also called as the off-shoulder blouses are so much in rage in the western outfits but if you pair a bardot blouse with a lehenga or a silk skirt then it looks even more stunning. Definitely it gives so feminine and sexy look to your ethnic wardrobe. This is a trend you should just try out this Diwali and you will surely turn many heads.
Wearing the palazzos or churidars or salwars with the kurta is so last season. Just pair your anarkali or a straight kurta with a sharara and stand out of the crowd. Sharara is a long flaired skirt and it definitely makes the outfit look more regal. This is definitely so in trend these days. Try pairing it with your kurta just like the bollywood actresses Nargis Fakri and Sophie Choudhary.
Silk skirts are so much in trend this season and are perfect for the Diwali. Not only they look so cool but also the silk fabric keeps you cozy on a cold Diwali night. Pair them with any thing and they can definitely work magic with all the top wear. They are available in so many designs. Go for a plain silk skirt or a printed or embroidered skirt as per your taste. You can pair a silk skirt with a blouse or a crop top and look a stunner.
Brocade is a rich woven fabric usually made with patterns of gold or silver threads. Brocade has always occupied a special place in the Indian outfits. However this season brocade seems to be very much in trend in ethnic outfits like skirts, lehengas and blouses. I just love the richness of this fabric and I think this is just the right fabric to make you shine this Diwali.
An ethnic outfit with a western touch is so good for the no-frills carefree girls who like making a statement in the ethnic outfit which has been made compatible with their modern tastes. Like you can pair a western top with your plain saree or lehenga and go about looking smart this Diwali.
Maxi slit Kurtas
These are still so much trending. You can pair them with a lehenga or a churidar or a sharara and add that diva touch to your outfit.
Gold and shimmer
Gold has been the color of the season in both national and international fashion circles. No color is as synonymous with Diwali festival as the colour gold. This colour definitely means you are all ready to shine and glitter. Hey i am just too fond of this color and I think this color goes so well with the Indian skin tone.
Jhumkis and Chandbaalis
Chandbaalis that have been in vogue since last year are still very much the preferred earrings this season too. These still seem to be a favourite of many celebs and why not after all they look so stunning. Jhumkis too look good with any ethnic outfit and can dazzle your Diwali outfit anytime.
Headgears have been so much in vogue in the international ramp shows this season and can also look equally good with the Indian ethnic outfits. So if you are the rebel fashionista then this is the fashion trend for you.
Hey do let me know if any of these trends too fits your must-have list this Diwali...Happy shopping and a very Happy Diwali..!!
