Diwali is just around the corner and the mood of the markets, houses and cafes has turned into a festive one with all that buzz, lights and decoration. But have you decided what you are going to wear this Diwali? If not, Wedding Affair is here to help you out. Get ready for the Diwali poojan in your trendiest and fashion-forward ethnic wear. Add glitz and glamour to your Diwali festivities by oozing out that fashion diva in you. Here are the fashion trends that you must follow this Diwali.
1. Ruffles And Feathers
Ruffles in the hemlines, sleeves or the neckline — ruffles are the trendiest addition to the fashion wish list of every diva. When combined with feather or fur accentuates, these ruffles give an edgy look to the festive outfits. Falguni and Shane Peacock’s couture has highlighted both these trends in their recent ramp shows.
One thing that is peculiar to Diwali as a festival is that it is a vibrant and sparkly affair. Then why should we not resonate the vibe with our outfits? Tarun Tahiliani’s couture work in India Couture Week included work with Swarovski crystals to add that extra bling in the ethnic garments.
3. Muted Colours
After a whole lot of months of gaudy colours being in fashion, muted shades are back in vogue. Gaurav Gupta displayed a lot of his designer pieces in ivory, off-white and white shades. Combined with bright embroidery or subtle shimmer, these outfits will serve a perfect look for all your Diwali parties.
4. Indo-Western Outfits
For the ultra-modern and a-la-mode woman, a saree inspired gown or an asymmetrical lehenga can serve as the perfect Diwali outfit. Bring out the vogue this Diwali by getting inspired by the designers like Rahul Mishra and Gaurav Gupta.
5. Slinky Cholis
Revealing, dainty and bold is what best describes the cholis and blouses being designed by the Indian designers in their recent ramp shows. Designers like Shyamal & Bhumika, Gaurav Gupta and Reynu Taandon have recently used fabrics like silk and satin to weave magic into their revealing choli and blouse designs.
