Style pundits are making the predictions and they say that some of the most popular outfits in the season are:
Chaniya choli and ghagras
This is the most popular attire that women wear during the festive season. The chaniya cholis are adorned with intricate sequins, embroidery and mirror work. Ghagras are colourful and long skirts are worn with cholis and you would find the ghagras adorned with a lot of embroidery and mirror work. The correct way to wear these is to team it with contrasting colours.
The traditional wear for most festivities, it comes in various varieties, silk, chiffon and cotton. Most sarees are best worn with traditional jewellery like kundan
These long flowing kurta's teamed with churidar's and dupatta's are a rage with all age groups and it is best to wear as minumal jewellery as possible with this outfit.
Some of the popular accessories that are worn during the navratris with the attires are amulets or baju bandh’s, kadas, jhumkas and maang tikkas. You can shop online for a variety of imitation and ethnic designer jewellery for this season. Most of the accessories are available at Vastradi, one of India's
While these are the most popular looks, you can also experiment with your look with some different dressing styles.
Look 1 - Traditional - Opt for Anarkali's
Diwali is all about traditions and we love the cut and the fall of this beautiful anarkali. Green is a colour that looks beautiful at any time of the day. You can buy this from Myntra. Most of these outfits are embellished with sequins and are designed to look stylish and elegant. You can click on each pic to buy the product.
Style note from Vastradi: You need minimal jewellery to style this outfit. The emphasis when you choose to wear an anarkali should be on earrings. You can choose jhumkas, diamond droplets or danglers that go very well with the outfit.
Look 2 – Blending tradition with contemporary style
If you love to experiment with looks, we recommend a blend of contemporary with traditional style. This is one of the looks that are expected this festive season. These silk pallazo’s from Biba are available in Myntra and can be combined with the silk sleeveless top or a tank top. Add stylish sandals and your look is complete. The stylish silk pallazo’s are totally in sync with the festive season because of its rich look.
Style note from Vastradi: We recommend chunky accessories to complete the look. You can opt for bracelets, chunky necklaces and earrings to complete the look.
Look 3 – Fusion your style
Have you thought of teaming a tank top with an ethnic skirt this Diwali? We loved this skirt at 9rasa! This ethnic and sensual skirt is a unique masterpiece. It has a drawstring at the waist that makes it adjustable and comfortable. Team it with a silk tank top and wear flat sandals to complete the look.
Style note from Vastradi: Wear chunky jewellery with this attire. Chunky rings teamed with some heavy earrings and a single neck piece will look good with this combination.
