Style Tips for Diwali – 2018
Diwali is one festival where you want to look your best. Steal the show this Diwali by keeping a few style tips in mind to look effortlessly beautiful this festive season.
1. Enhance the Traditional Look
Festivals like Diwali bring out the Diva in most of us. Long jhumkas and beautiful Indian outfits have their own charm for sure. But why settle for the basic outfits when there are a million ways to jazz up the traditional look? A short sleeveless kurta with a nice Patiala is a super trendy look. You need not worry if your outfit is simple because a heavy mirror-work or embroidered dupatta will fix this for you! Keep your hair down and wear pretty jhumkas to add some bling around your face. Complete this look with a pair of wedges or open sandals. You’ll surely make heads turn in this gorgeous look. If your outfit and accessories are heavy, keep your makeup simple. You do not want to be over-the-top. A simple winged liner, heavy mascara and a bright lipstick will complete your look.
2. Go Indo-Western
This Diwali is an excellent time to experiment with your bottoms. So ditch the plain leggings and make way for the trending styles in bottom wear. You can pair shararas, palazzos or cigarette pants with long or short Kurtis to spice up your look. Floor-length jackets too can give you the look you seek. Front-slit ankle length kurtas with skirts in contrasting colours are also garnering attention from all, so do give it a thought ladies. Long earrings, high heels (if you’re comfortable) and a messy bun will provide you with that picture perfect look. Keep your make-up elegant and use shimmering blush for rosy cheeks.
3. Say Hello to Long Skirts & Dresses
Maxi skirts are back in trend and women can’t be happier! Wearing a long layered skirt and waltzing around like a princess makes every woman feel glamorous. A maxi skirt is a must-have in your wardrobe. To add glitz and glamour, pair this skirt with a shimmering top, in ivory or rose gold with sequins. Ladies, if you are confident enough, tuck in a plain satin shirt into a high-waist floral skirt. Try this and be the star of the party! Add more elegance to this look with a beautiful pair of chand balis and heels to look tall and confident. A nice bun will look festive, or you can keep your hair down and add some soft curls to the ends. Stick to monochromatic themed make-up for eyes and lipstick if your outfit is heavy and well accessorised.
4. Experiment With A Saree
If you still can’t make up your mind, then go for a saree because saree’s are timeless, elegant and work for every occasion. Even a simple saree can make you look beautiful, all thanks to a 6-yard long drape! Amazing, isn’t it? For an elegant look, wear a plain saree with an embellished border. Instead of splurging on a heavy saree, this Diwali, invest in a uniquely designed blouse. A designer blouse can change the look of the plainest saree. Look to celebrities like Sonal Kapoor for some saree inspiration. Pair this look with elegant diamond studs and pretty bangles, and you’re all set! A neat bun and smokey eyes work best with sarees that have warm shades. You can wear nude makeup if your saree is bright and heavy.
5. Consider Pastels With Bling
The festival of lights demands bling! So worry not ladies if you feel that your outfit is too plain and sober. Pastel shades are in too, and adding bling to your simple traditional clothes has its own festive benefits. You can own a pastel kurta with minimum work by styling it up with a pair of dazzling earrings and nice golden footwear; they need not be heels, even Juttis can work their magic! Bangles of course and a simple yet elegant Maang Tikka will make you look beautiful. The idea here being that simple pastel shades jazzed up with diamonds, gold jewellery and accessories can be an ideal look this Diwali. You can keep your makeup as simple as your outfit. However, if you are in for an experiment, then you can play around with bright shades.
So what are you waiting for ladies? Now that you have quite a few fashion ideas to jazz up this festive season, it’s time to go shopping! Abide by these tips and trust us, you will look stunning this Diwali.
