Can’t believe Diwali is almost here. Ladies, the countdown is officially on and it is high time that you start curating your festive outfit before it’s too late to get something new and you’d have to make do with whatever sits in the cupboard. What an ominous thought, right? Now, while the pandemic might have hampered your festive spirit last year, things are looking up this time around, and it is time to celebrate. It is but natural that you’d like to put your sartorial foot forward and we have got you covered in case you are looking for a head start with the preparations.
Our B-town celebs are already in the festive spirit and currently have us enamoured with their occasionwear picks. Well, just in case you too are looking for a show-stopping look, here are some B-town inspired looks that will keep you nicely covered:
Just yesterday, Janhvi Kapoor took to Instagram to share pictures of her in a powder pink saree that is reminding us of her mother, Sridevi. The actress is a spitting image of the yesteryear superstar in the solid chiffon saree that has been matched with a muted gold blouse. This is a fail-proof look that happens to be more of a classic and should be your pick in case you are looking for something equal parts polished and festive.
Loved pop colours that graced the runway in the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week? Ananya Panday’s hot pink ruffled saree will surely catch your fancy. We like the matching mirror work blouse and how the ruffles are giving her saree a skirt-like silhouette.
Oh and don’t forget to throw in a pair of statement earrings to go with your look:
Want to keep it light and laidback for your at-home festivities? Take a cue from Karisma Kapoor and her coordinating top and skirt set. The floral outfit has a breezy vibe to it and still looks quite dressy and smart. You can explore the new Indya X Payal Singhal collection in case you are looking for similar finds.
While you are opting for comfortable finds, might we recommend Birkenstock’s festive footwear collection to match your look?
Hues of green and yellow are everywhere right now and there was no way we were going to leave out the trending shades from our festive listing. Top on our wishlist is Deepika Padukone’s luxe velvet suit set that has been embellished with traditional gota work and dipped in glorious mustard for utmost festive feels. Here is a similar offering by Dimple Design Studio to keep you covered:
Nora Fatehi is the star of the moment and so is her steller wardrobe that has us interested in its Indian wear leanings of late. She recently posted a picture of her in a ruched ivory anarkali complete with an exaggerated flair and churidaar sleeves and we think this is surely a look worth recreating.
Also, don’t forget to spruce up your outfit with statement jewels while going light on the garments:
It really does not get more festive than a bright magenta outfit and Kajol ushered in the festive vibe earlier this week with her vibrant saree that was matched with an embellished blouse and a matching potli.
Sara Ali Khan keeps us constantly impressed with her arsenal of graceful suit sets and it is her recent lacy white outfit that would be a perfect fit for daytime festivities.
Also, in case you want to add a dash of colour to your all-white outfit, might we suggest that you pick up a chic bag from Miraggio’s selection of colour-pop accessories?
For her sister Rhea Kapoor’s wedding, Sonam Kapoor donned a gorgeous mint and blush pink anarkali set and the outfit has been sitting in our bookmark folder since then. Done in flowy georgette and organza silk, the outfit featured gota, marodi, and thread work and is both minimal yet a statement piece. Here are a few picks in case you are equally stunned with the outfit:
Kareena Kapoor Khan’s festive fits are always copping worthy and thus yellow anarkali set is no different. From the defined neck to the full sleeves, we love it all and here is an outfit from Maayera Jaipur that will make up for an equally dazzling Diwali look:
So ladies all set to turn on the diva mode this Diwali?
