AN ETHNIC VEST/JACKET WITH SAREE
“An ethnic vest can be the perfect pick this Diwali season. Pair it with your Anarkali, long kurta or a simple top, Team it up with right accessories. Pay extra attention to the right fit. Also, it’s uber-cool to pair a saree with a jacket. A jacket on top of your saree can totally turn around your look,” says the Bong beauty.
Devlina shared that a soft pastel lehenga with an ultra-chic choli can never go wrong this festive season. “It’s the easiest and best way to look elegant this Diwali! You can also give your fancy-old kurta a new lease of life by pairing it with an embellished skirt and dupatta. Go heavy on jewellery” she added.
With the new runway trends and celebs walking the talk with their traditional avatar, Dhoti salwar is on trend this season. This outfit is a perfect blend of comfort and style. “Pair them up with a bold tank top or traditional kurtas, their appeal is undeniable. To add more to your look, team it up with indo-western makeup and accessories and you’re all set to rock the Diwali party,” Bhattacharya shared.
The Sharara which is often compared with ‘Ghagra’ is one of the most dressed outfits during Indian festivals, wedding seasons and so on. Often quoted as comfort wear, this outfit has its dominance in the industry. So next time you are running out of traditional outfit ideas don’t forget to add a Sharara to your cart.
“There are multiple varieties of shararas to style this festive season. The best way to flaunt your Sharara look is by teaming it up with short Kurtis,” says Devlina.
