Anarkali Dress – Local Designer | Ring – Valliyan | Sandals – Zara | Clutch – Inc.5
As the festival of lights approaches which celebrates the triumph of good over evil. All of us are geared up to bring in Diwali with lots of zest and enthusiasm. Like most of us Diwali is my favourite festival too. Diwali Festivities mean bright illuminating diyas and beautifully decorated lanterns, family get-togethers, lots of gifts, indulging in sweet treats and confectionaries and not to forget those beautiful and grand fireworks. Whether you are attending a Diwali party or just lounging with your friends, the big question on everyone’s mind is how to put their best ethnic foot forward.
Well during Diwali I wear some heavy (but not OTT) to very simple outfits depending on the event. For day wear I opt for a simple but bright look and for evening Diwali parties I go for something like I am wearing here lightly embroidered or embellished and in deeper shades. Since this is the first time I am doing a traditional outfit post on the blog I thought of keeping things simple and subtle.
Because we have a festival to celebrate and not a wedding to attend hence wearing something comfortable yet impactful is the main agenda. One thing I always keep in mind for festive looks is to maintain a balance, if the outfit is simple than compensate it with some beautiful heavy jewellery and vice versa. Also, keep your makeup in harmony with the occasion and outfit.
Like this beautiful anarkali I have worn here in blue which is a little on the deeper side and with accents of magenta and black. Again I have stuck to minimal accessories firstly cause the design on the sleeves give a illusion like I am wearing bangles and secondly paring heavy gold accessories for evening affair will look out of place in this look. To complete the look I have added a black clutch and black heels.
I hope my few pointers help you achieve chic looks this festive season. To all my beautiful readers Wishing you a Happy Diwali and a Prosperous New Year. Have a safe Diwali.
