Diwali is here! This is the perfect opportunity for women to bring out their luscious silks and gorgeous cottons crafted with beautiful designs and embroideries. Flowy skirts paired with edgy crop tops or long tapered ones are in the vogue now for a modern look. For formal evenings, a beautiful embellished gown give a more dramatic feel. You can choose the classic nine yards of vintage charm by wearing a dazzling saree this season. Sarees are versatile and add elegance for any occasion. If wearing heavy outfits is not your style, tunics are also a great option, for a traditional look you can pair it with comfortable embroidered palazzo pants for a Diwali lunch outing. Avoid wearing multiple layers to be comfortable for a long night of festive fun. Intricately designed shararas are good options as festive outfits. Jewels and elegant shades like white, ivory, beige and gold give a festive vibe. Pick the shade that best compliment your style and choice of garments. Outfits with sequin, threadwork, floral motifs and sheer are perfect for this festive season

Ethnic will never goes off vogue for Diwali
Diwali is one of the few occasions when you want to flaunt your ethnic wear. Anything from a saree to an Anarkali would look great on this auspicious occasion. Traditional Banarasi sarees or a Kanjivaram saree will be the perfect ensemble. You can opt for Indo Western dhoti sarees and saree with belts. Pair your outfit with some traditional gold jewellery Meenakari and Kundans to complete your look.

 

A ready to wear drape is the apt choice if you’re running out of time and energy, while a twirl-friendly lehenga choli is perfect if you want to trend on social media!

Fusions  
Jacket suits  are some smart-dressing option for the day.
Raw silk slit one piece, ruffle saree with one shoulder sleeves, asymmetric kurtas and pant with sarees and dhoti sarees, a traditional skirt paired with a crop top choli would look great. A kurta paired with a palazzo or straight cut pants specially same raw silk fabric like coords will definitely eye turner and stand out from the crowd.

Accessories
The new trend where they wear heavy neckpiece and leave the earring or wear very heavy earring and leave your neck bear.
No Indian attire is complete without some jewellery. While selecting the jewellery keep in mind the outfit that you are going to wear. The jewellery must complement the outfit. If you are wearing something that has a lot of embellishments and embroidery on it then avoid wearing very heavy jewellery as it will look a bit too much. Go for a statement jewellery piece such as a chunky necklace or earrings to add value to the garment. Wet look or juda with flowers would be perfect and gives complete festive look  

 

Footwear
You need to be cautious as you need to wear something which is comfortable. You maybe on your feet, dancing and walking all night around.  Flats and wedges are the most comfortable and you can choose those that has embellishments and stones on them for that festive vibe.
