You hear us when we say that there are (more than) a couple of dresses lying in your closet, right? From flares and voluminous finds to sleek versions, it's time to go through your wardrobe to take out the best from your going-out gowns and dresses. And then? Add a dupatta just like Sonam Kapoor, working towards a monochrome bright like hers or experimenting with embellished versions in a different colour scheme. Don't forget to work those towering heels too!

Your mother's wardrobe is a treasure trove when it comes to classy drapes and textiles she has probably collected over years. Borrow from her this Diwali, giving your own distinct spin to it by styling it a bit off-route (we are looking at Athiya Shetty) than the tried-and-tested version. Throw in the best of a new-blouse from your existing closet and voila! you are all decked up for the soirée.

Another one to up the drape game. Ladies, remember how you have been looking to ace the cinched waist like Mouni Roy's for quite some time now? No better time than the small festive get-togethers this year to bring it to the forefront. Be it your own ruffled saree or a plain six-yard, styling it with a belt is bound to accentuate your look instantly. The best part? It only takes a minute and you have all the requirements already!

A skirt with a kurta; a saree worn with a shirt or a dupatta tucked a tad bit different as compared to the run-of-the-mill version works like a charm. Take notes from Kriti Sanon's dual-toned pick that serves as testimony to the styling hack you can try for Diwali. For those who thrive on the contemporary vibe, ditching the heels and reaching out for the sneakers might do the trick.

Not in the mood to wear a saree or a skirt this Diwali? We hear you. In sync with those pyjama feels though far from it is Sonakshi Sinha's uber-cool co-ord look, one you can emulate in a jiffy with your palazzos, shararas, bandeaus, crop tops and/or jackets. Don't forget the elaborate neckpieces and earrings that help you bring in those festive feels and make a splash.

We have said it before and we will say it again, just to keep things in the clear: your lehengas are up for wearing and the festivities present the best of times to don them in style. The trick being, you can experiment all that you want. We are thinking of adding a chic jacket, monochrome like Shilpa Shetty or otherwise, and working the ultra-modern look for bringing in the festival of lights.

It doesn't get more unique than this!
