Navigating through the festive-dressing waters might feel like a massive feat, but hold that thought until you see our latest pick, a celeb-approved attire that will set you up for smooth sailing this Diwali. We are talking about Kriti Sanon's recent reminder—courtesy Instagram—of a celebratory outfit that solves all your woes when it comes to dressing up to the nines. The trick? Keep it vibrant!
Kriti Sanon's Festive-Ready Lehenga
Here's delving into the Bollywood actress's look that is just ideal for slipping into and celebrating in. Read on.
Sharing a throwback picture on Instagram and serving some sartorial inspiration right in time for Diwali, Kriti Sanon's outfit was a stellar one for those still on the fence about what to wear. The actress's Indian wear pick was a colourful lehengathat featured the time-honoured craft of Phulkari. Designed by Sukriti & Aakriti for their latest collection that was presented last month, the attire was a smorgasbord of colours in true Phulkari style, the embroidery native to Punjab known for its vibrant and detailed embroidery. The craft is renowned for its dense and recognisable motifs, often putting birds, animals and geometrical shapes on the forefront. The designer duo's pastel-hued lehenga used the latter, their 'Neophulkari' offering comprising a flared lehenga, a fully embroidered blouse and a dupatta scattered with similar motifs.
The comfortable-looking attire is fit for the close-knit festive gatherings you may be planning with family and friends. For a lighter look, you can also opt for just one separate in your ensemble that incorporates the embroidered craft. We suggest a mix-and-match with your existing separates to bring out the best. From fun cropped tops and fail-safe skirts to the traditional Phulkari dupatta, add what's missing from your wardrobe, right in the nick of time.
There's no forgetting on the notes that can be derived from Kriti Sanon's accessories and beauty look; a detailed eye makeup and a dab of your matte lipstick can elevate your festive look in a jiffy. As for the jewellery, choose one piece that you wish to highlight, picking a pair of earrings like the actress or going all out on the bling with a layered necklace. Below, all the finds for a stunning celebratory look for Diwali.
