Diwali styling dilemma? Here's what experts are suggesting
Diwali is just around the corner, and it is okay if you haven't picked the perfect dress for the festivities. Mildly fashion-conscious people (like us) often spend a lot of time and energy in choosing the right attire for various occasions. Result? Always a little too late to order it, or getting it tailored to our preference!
Yet looking rad on D-day is always the topmost priority and the only hope. But fashion that was once bygone making a comeback, it is easy to pull off any look with some research and of course, mom's wardrobe! Here's a guide to five expert-approved looks put together to give you a style guide for the festive season.
Pastels have been around for a while, and they are here to stay this season. Choose pastel pinks and blues dresses, lehengas or maxi dresses combined with statement jewellery for a simple yet elegant look.
Brocade celebrates the aesthetics with its intricately woven fabric and is definitely a stellar choice for any occasion. Born in the Middle East, brocade designs bring with them a subtle charm that can go both as morning wear or evening wear. Style it in a saree or choose a bell-bottom trouser styled with a solid shirt.
Geometric prints, (whether stripes or complex combinations), were spotted during the Lakme Fashion Week 2020. But this time, much like the year 2020, they are without any restrictions and not at all subtle. Sport a full geometry print look or restrict it to the bottoms with lehengas and palazzos. The choice is yours!
If you are looking for something more simple, yet contemporary, the floral embroidery is your to-got-to. Choose pastel floral sarees styled with pastel brocade or keep it simple with a belted full-flared maxi dress.
The year 2020 has been all about dramatic events, and fashion is definitely not sitting calm through the storm. Dramatic silhouettes are here, and the possibilities are wild! Beginning from bell bottoms, balloon-sleeved cropped blouse, puff-sleeved blousons, belted full-flared maxi and capes -- its everything you can imagine.
So, what style are you planning to sport this Diwali?
