The ongoing festivities have given us more reasons to go out and shop for the latest styles. And the options are endless. Even shops, malls, and eminent brand outlets stay open until the wee hours to make sure that no one misses out on their shopping sprees. Keeping the season in mind, every brand, big and small, has launched collections that adequately represent the celebratory vibe.

This year, while fusion options are definitely prominent, the traditional fabrics are just as much in vogue. Read on as we tell you what’s fresh this year in the world of festive ethnic wear, so that you can stand out from the crowd!

Indians have various festivals during this time of the year. For example, if Delhiites are all excited about Diwali, it’s Kali Puja for Calcuttans and Chhath Puja for the people of Bihar. And what follows the festivities are the big-fat Indian weddings, in full tashan. So what if we opted for clothes that would serve both the purposes? It will save time and also spare the pocket.

Hence, going for fabrics that are easy to handle and maintain becomes a smart choice. Though festive collection and wedding collections are not all the same, ready-made sarees, ethnic kurtas, long skirts with crop-tops (adorned with traditional embroidery) work well in every case. There is no hard and fast rule, when talking about fabrics and staples. Going for your comfort level is what matters the most. While cotton works for some, linen might do the trick for others. Just remember to accessorise well and get ready to rock the party. Now, go on and grab the best ones before they are all gone!
