All this defines a PERFECT DIWALI.

Now,the major glory of Diwali lies in dressing up at your best and that too when there is no marriage or anybody’s function to attend,but just Diwali.I am sure by now we all are almost decked up with new clothes to be worn this festive season. I love how people are pull out their best outfit and get all traditional. It’s actually Indian’s Christmas. 

Bling is the mantra for many during all the weddings and festivities happening around. But out there would be few people like me,who are not that much in love with bling and wish to keep it low but still want to dazzle.

Here are a few looks created keeping the look simple yet stylish and which could be carried with elan.Moreover,it’s created keeping in mind going ‘not so bling’ this Diwali.

 1.Mix and Match

This look has an sophisticated mix of grays,blues and greens. These three color mix well with each other and will give a subtle look. Ethnic prints on the skirt will give that shine look you need for Diwali outfit. 

Accessorize this look with vibrant green jewelry and kolhapuri chappals. You are ready now !



2.Modern Tradition

Are you a Saree girl? But you don’t want to go for traditional Saree look? Then,this is for you. Get some quirky saree and rather than a blouse wear it with a loose top in close enough colors. Add some junk jewelry,a embroidered bag and heels. 

3. Crop Top Fan

To the girls who are die hard fan of Crop tops than take this look. Steal a heavy work dupatta from your mom’s wardrobe and wear a crop top with a palazzo 

Add mojaris or slippers of your choice and some danglers. This look is for you. Go grab it,crop girl.


4. Indian Chic

Dhoti pants have a major role to play in ethnic outfits and they tend give you a look one can’t take your eyes off. If you wanna wear color white then maximum you have to do is add a vibrant jacket to your outfit. Kudos. You look lovely.

Accessorize it well and get set to lit the ambiance with your look. 



5.Cherry Brights

Cherry,Marsala and Reds are color of this year and they are enough to bring out the #indianchic in you. You can wear a long kurta with a contrasting palazzo or a legging. 

Add glamour by traditional earrings and glitters pumps or kolhapuris.


6. Let Marsala Do the Talking !

As I wrote before, Marsala is color of 2015 and will always get you win win look.Take a heavy embroidered neck kurta and team it up with a dhoti pants,skirt or a pair of leggings. Tie you hair up and babe you will be looking not less than a diva. Gold toned accessories will add a cheerful festive look. Are you ready?
