So, the invites are out, the preparations are done, the gifts have been picked and the excitement in the air is palpable! Yes, Diwali is just a couple of days away and you are too immersed in all the festive hullabaloo to think of a dozen different outfits for all the card parties, puja rituals or Diwali night. So, it’s high time you got yourself a few multi-tasking festive pieces that you can mix & match into different outfits and solve all your what-to-wear woes this season!
A festive tunic
Get yourself a traditional tunic or kurta in a vibrant color and with prints or embroidery that you can dress up or down as per the requirement during this festive madness. Pair it up with straight pants or cropped palazzos & chunky earrings for a festive fusion look. While, for Diwali night, you can wear it with a flared maxi skirt, heels & a chic up-do for a cracker of a look! Mix & match it with various bottoms or different accessories to create almost-new ensembles every time!
A gorgeous dupatta
Invest in a gorgeous embellished dupatta this season as that can be your go-to piece to jazz up various outfits. Choose one in a color such as black, red, cream or beige so that it goes with different color combinations. Going to a card party? Pair a crop top with a pair of chic dhoti pants and throw on the dupatta like a stole. For Diwali evening, you can sport the same dupatta with a lehenga choli or a festive anarkali! Use it like a scarf with Indo-western outfits or flaunt it with your churidars or lehengas for a grand festive look!
A chic clutch
While running from party to party and from celebration to celebration, you need a sturdy & stylish bag to carry all your essentials like pone, money, keys & lip gloss. Pick a handy, fashionable clutch bag, preferably embellished or in a metallic hue, that will be the perfect accessory to all your festive outfits and store all your knick-knacks as well! Choose a boxy clutch if you want to fit in must-carry things inside, or pick a sleek envelope clutch for a more elegant & classy vibe and enjoy the festive season in style!
A pair of statement earrings
What’s Diwali dress-up without your dose of bling? Your jewels play an important role in your festive fashion saga, so you need to store up on some statement pieces for the season. A pair of beautiful earrings can spruce up any festive look – be it a crop top & lehenga skirt, or a kurta & palazzo, or even a saree & chic blouse combo. The same pair of chunky jhumkas can be flaunted with a flared kurta & palazzo look in the daytime and an embellished silk saree at night. Just style your hair into a trendy bun or braid & let those earrings do all the talking!
So, stock up on these trendy multi-tasking pieces and have a fashionable Diwali! When in doubt, just mix and match, and you can effortlessly be the star of the parties!
