Even though you probably already have your Diwali outfit hanging in your wardrobe right now, we know that a few more options never hurt. Bollywood celebs have been gradually revealing their desi looks since Navratri but they were saving the best for the Diwali parties, obviously. Now that you are about to see their diverse style, we want you to know that alternatives are endless. From what we have witnessed, this is what we can tell - Anarkali is one silhouette you don’t want to stay away from, statement earrings are what you should be hoarding on and hints of gold should be sprinkled all over. Go ahead, check them out and then treat yourself to a pretty outfit.
Alright then, floor-length kurtas have officially replaced the knee-length kurtas, at least for the festive season. Kriti Sanon, yes, our very own Bitti, wore a peach-pink anarkali with a delicate stud pattern from Faabiiana. Stylist Sukriti Grover styled the outfit with statement kundan earrings from Mahesh Notandass, to enhance the celebratory mood and juttis by Fizzy Goblet. So, if you want to go for a pastel shade this season, you know how to style it.

Parineeti Chopra has been promoting her upcoming movie Golmaal Again in desi style, so we can’t say that we didn’t see a perfect look coming. Stylist Sanjana Batra has styled her gorgeous embroidered ankle-length anarkali suit in red from Anita Dongre with golden Steve Madden heels. We must say that Parineeti knows that swirling and twirling is one of the best ways to flaunt your outfit. Her sister aces that move too.

Stylist Aastha Sharma has styled a jacket blouse with an ethnic skirt from Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla for Bhumi Pednekar and she sure knows how to pull off a desi outfit to the best of its glory. While it isn’t always an easy trend to walk in as we blend two cultures - formal and ethnic in one look but pieces chosen in the same shade and similar patterns can help. Let’s not forget to add drama with jhumkas, Bhumi is wearing earrings by Karan Johar for Tyanni Jewellery.
