Replace your Palazzo Suits with Shararas and flared pants
While Palazzos are comfortable, teaming up shirts and kurtis with shararas will give it a traditional twist. You can also opt for flared pants (bell-bottoms). Such bottoms go well with mid-length kurtas, asymmetrical design kurtas, A-line tops, even capes and short cholis. You can also opt for with printed pants with a plain kurta or A-line front slits kurta in contrast colours
Dhoti Style pants
Try this unique style for Diwali festive wear. Dhoti pants are high on-trend, they are comfy yet stylish, pair them with peplum kurtas, high-low kurta, ethnic crop tops with long shrugs or jackets.
Embroidered jackets are versatile and can be accessorized to achieve an indo-western look. You can pair a long statement jacket with cigarette pants or evening wear with a contrasting coloured jumpsuit. You can also skip the dupatta and style the jacket with a kurta.
Saris with a twist
Saris can never go out of fashion. This festive season, opt for sari gowns, which are very much in trend. For a modern look, you can also add a belt to your sari. Go for small or medium belts or embellished belt that stands out. You can also pair your plain saris with statement blouses to glam up your look instantly.
Don’t forget to accessorise your look for a festive touch. Potli bags and juttis make a great combination with ethnic wear. When it comes to jewellery, style your look with accessories that stand out. From jhumkas, chokers to maang-tikkas, accessorise your look with bold pieces.
Take inspiration from these ethnic trends and look your best this Diwali!
