The way that we celebrate festivals may have changed to accommodate the need to be indoors (and rightly so) but in 2020 too, the festive spirit is well and alive. With large crowds and shindigs having been swapped for quieter, more intimate soirées, you can also take it up a notch in terms of your sartorial leanings, experimenting with styles that you always saved for later in favour of the more traditional outings. And with Diwali just around the corner, the wait isn't that long either!
