These Celebrities Are Teaching Us A Lesson On How to Dress Desi!

With the festive season fast approaching, we’re sure you’re on the lookout for outfit inspiration at all times. Especially if you’re always updated with the latest trends celebrities are wearing, finding an outfit that fits *your* style the best can be quite a task! But it’s time to put your stress aside. We’ve decoded your favourite celebrities’ ethnic wear outfits and put together all the Indian wear styling tips you need!  

1. Just Belt It…

If you haven’t already noticed, the waist seems to be celebrities’ new favourite body part. Though corset belts are big this season, we saw belts in varied sizes in Indian and western wear outfits. Whether you’re wearing an anarkali dress or a simple saree, belting the layers can add structure to your overall outfit and instantly take it up a notch. So take cue from Athiya for your upcoming Diwali parties, ladies!

We recommend this belt (Rs 1,740) to up your desi game!

2. Rock Fusion Wear Like A Fashion Pro

Shilpa is known to pull off everything like a pro! And this time, she rocks the fusion wear trend with so much ease. She paired dhoti pants with a blouse that screams sexy and completed the look with a sheer cape. We’re really not sure what we love the most about this look! Take a lesson from Shilpa on how to play with trends and don’t hesitate to put two completely different pieces together. As long as they’re in the same colour or carry the same print, you’re good to go!

Mix things up with this bralette (Rs 999) and a pair of dhoti pants!

3. Play With Textures

Sonakshi fears nobody when it comes to experimenting with fabrics or textures. She’s taken a simple pistachio green net lehenga to a whole new level by styling it with a corset and topping it off with a tasseled cape. For the trendy girl who wants to grab all the eyeballs at the cards party, this look is ideal! It’s comfortable, easy to pull off and young at the same time. We approve!

4. Or Get The Yellow Fever!

Have you noticed how SO many of our Bollywood divas have recently been spotted wearing yellow Indian wear? Well, take the hint, girls. Yellow is the colour you’ll be seeing a lot this festive season! But you need to work it differently to stand out, right? An outfit like Kriti’s that strikes the perfect balance between sexy and chic should do the trick! Just style your neutral palazzo pants with a one shoulder yellow top and complete the look with a statement neckpiece.

5. An Ethnic Jumpsuit, Maybe?

If you’re up for making a bold fashion statement, we’re here with advice. Do it like Parineeti and rock a jumpsuit the Indian way! If you want to wear dhoti pants this Diwali, consider investing in a dhoti pant jumpsuit. Accentuate your waist with a wide belt and accessorize well with a choker. Add a pair of chic juttis and bold eye make-up to complete the look!

We always save the best for the last! Alia shows us how pairing two really bright colours together isn’t a bad idea at all. We usually always prefer wearing prints on the top and keep the pants as simple as we can. But Alia’s here to change that. Go for two contrast colours (even in the brightest of shades) and don’t shy away from wearing prints all over your legs! Add structure to your look by either tucking in your top or adding a belt to the outfit. You can rock a similar look with dhoti pants as well.
