10 Off-Beat Pieces To Put Your Best Foot Forward This Festive Season!

The thing is, there is only SO MUCH you can do with traditional outfits, right? Nope. 

The festive season beckons and we (you and I) are absolutely going to change up our ethnic fashion game and take it up a notch. Festive fashion isn't just about donning heavy outfits or sticking to the usual tried and tested combinations. Today, there's so much you can do with just different patterns and garments. After that, when you decide to open up the silhouette roster, you suddenly have a whole new (and unexplored) world of ethnic fashion. 

While I was looking for these stunning and off-beat pieces to amp up my Diwali fashion, I stumbled upon AJIO.com and was absolutely caught off guard. They are celebrating #100DaysOfNew with Aditi Rao Hydari and giving ethnic fashion an edgy and young toss-up. I couldn't stop myself from adding these gorgeous pieces to cart.

 

So while I was anyway shopping, I put aside 10 ethnic-chic pieces that will give you the best of both worlds. You've got some known silhouettes with some unusual patterns and "neo-festive" colours and even some new silhouettes you should try out. Shall we?

1. Angrakha Peplum Kurti with Contrast Hems

Let’s start the party with a seemingly traditional angrakha peplum kurti. Off the top of my head, you could pair this with skinny denim and heels for a fusion vibe, pair it with a matching flared skirt if you really want to go all out, or even wear a pair of dhoti pants to spice it up. You can do no wrong with this refreshing yet ethnic piece.

2. Textured Flared Kurta with Mandarin Collar

This piece caught my eye immediately. Such a fun twist on a flared kurta right? Honestly, I am a sucker for anything with fun sleeves and this ocean-adjacent colour has me floored. To add an extra ethnic touch just add a contrasting bright fuschia dupatta and chaandbaalis.

3. Saree with Zari Border & Motifs

Sarees are my festive jam. No, seriously! It’s that one ensemble that requires minimal effort but has maximum impact. Play around with your drape when you wear this saree. It’s zari border and metallic motifs makes it an ideal pick for the Diwali card party!

If you’re heading to a Diwali party straight from work, this is the ideal piece you should wear. Pair it with straight-cut pants and flats for work and then immediately switch it up with gold heels and jhumkas for a seamless day-to-night transition.

5. Maroon Solid Tunic

This kurta is the one you need to pick to beat the October heat but still look like a diva. The boat neck saves you from an itchy neckpiece and the maroon and gold combination is a win-win. Pair it with some heavy earrings and gold heels for a day out and you can even wear this one as a dress.

6. Layered Flared Skirt with Asymmetrical Panel

Who doesn’t love a good twirling slow-mo, especially during the festive season!? While floor-length lehengas have a special place in our wardrobe, this cropped and layered emerald toned skirt just looks so stunning! Pair it with a choli a mid-length kurta or even a bodysuit and you’re good to go.

7. Jumpsuit with Asymmetrical Tunic

Done with the 2 pieces? Well here’s a playsuit paired with an asymmetrical tunic to help you change things up for the season. The material will make sure the heat doesn’t get to you and the silhouette will definitely help you stand out. Pair this with a statement choker for maximum effect.

8. Placement Print A-line Kurta with Flap Pockets

As you might have noticed already, I am a big fan of the flare. The femininity of the silhouette just screams festive to me. This is another pick that I’d suggest you buy to put the glitter and shimmer from the diyas to shame. Pair this with svelte strappy heels and enjoy that Diwali party. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate the cinderella flare and pockets!

9. Floral Print Saree with Tassels

For me, this saree has a Yash Chopra-esque vibe but it’s just more fun. The fun tassels and bright colour would just amp up that pre-Diwali brunch you have going on. Pair it with a simple metal choker and some bangles to really bring out the ethnic-chic from this saree. Or you could do one better and wrap the pallu around your neck for a super classy look.

10. Open-Front Longline Jacket

The list would be incomplete without a layering option. What I love about this jacket is the ease with which it can be paired with various outfits. You could just pull up the jacket as a shrug with a gold kurta and some structured pants or even pair it with a crop top and dhoti pants. The options… are endless! 

Hope this list is just what you’re looking for to amp up your festive wardrobe. Happy Shopping!
