It’s not really Diwali unless your social media news feed is filled with pictures of you looking no less than a Diwali patakha! Dressing up in ethnic wear has its own charm, doesn’t it? Isn’t that why we look forward to the festive season the most?

Here are some ethnic wear trends we are loving and there’s no better time than Diwali to flaunt them like a boss!



1. The traditional gown



Put aside the saree this season and flaunt traditional gowns with panache. Gowns with traditional embroidery and drapes are not only easier to wear but also look equally classy and traditional like the saree. So go ahead and put your best food forward.

2.Go conventional



Diwali comes only once a year and it is the best time to flaunt your Indian wear. So go all out with traditional outfits. Wear those beautiful suits & kurtas that have been lying around in your closet for ages! Straight suits like the one in the pic are in this season. Wear straight suits with palazzos, long skirts, pants or leggings for an ultimately sleek and elegant look.


3. Cape Up in Style



Bored with the regular lehengas? Let’s set the trend meter on fire this Diwali. Wear this splendid plum skirt with a crop top and jazz it up with a gold cape embellished with golden flowers.


4.The quintessential saree!


If your idea of looking great is to look different, try this unique netted saree in bright hues for a super stylish look. This embroidered blouse with the saree is the best pick for you. Plus, the right accessories and embellishments can give you that perfect traditional yet modern look.

5. Ageless Churidaar kurta


A classic, you can never really go wrong with the simple kurta churidaar. If you are the style icon of your circle, do not miss out on a well-fitted churidaar to complement a long kurta this Diwali. Truly ethnic and traditional, a kurta in a single shade with heavy embroidery, coupled with a plain churidaar can make you look really suave if carried off well. Experiment with the colour to add a slight sparkle to your look.

Get ready to make a style statement this Diwali. With a range of unique styles and combinations to choose from, let your wardrobe sparkle and you shine at all the celebrations you become part of. Happy Diwali!
