Dazzling Diwali outfit. Umm… on cue, the panic sets in. But, fret not, we’re here to shed some light on dressing up in style this Diwali.

Diwali is the one-day you’re allowed to go all guilt-free. Ditch the diet, accept the moolah (blessings in disguise of course!), and get yourself a brand new set of clothes. From early morning poojas, hog-worthy lunches laced with saccharine-sweet mithais and a nightlong of festivities, it’s wise to choose an ensemble that will take you from day to evening in style and comfort. And lucky for you, we’ve got some style-worthy solutions for your pre-festive woes and their pretty fashionable.

We’ve picked out two looks, one that’s got a fusion twist, while the other is good ‘ol traditional. For a festive fusion look, remember how we said maxi lengths were the new mini, well, a printed crinkled skirt is right-on-trend to wear this Diwali. Partner it a crop top (show off those toned-abs), a choli or just dig into your wardrobe and pair it up one of your lace tops. Easy right? And if bling is your game, some polki jewellery (Mughal-inspired) will add a definite dose of dazzle to your fusion look.

For a traditional look, be on-trend at get yourself a stunning anarkali. While neutrals are tres chic, for Diwali we’ll still put our bets on bright and bold hues with metallic accents. Sparkles, sequins, trims et al- this is the only time we’ll grant the Bapi-bling.

For the guys, well ditch the shirts and suits, because a man in a kurta- a cracker of a match. And if you’ve not heard yet, we’ve got some denim kurtas; perfect for the guys who can’t part with their jeans. Likewise, you could go all out festive and put on a dapper bandhgala a la Prem.

So whether you’re going ethnic with a twist or traditional, don’t forget to have some fun and celebrate the festivities in style. Happy Diwali!
