While you might be a fan of western wear like me, this festive season won’t you wish to look different? The spirit of the festivals like Navratri and Diwali that are coming up, celebrate colour and sparkle at its best. You can indulge in them in style and look more ravishing than ever in ethnic wear as well.
Here’s how to do it:
☆WHAT TO WEAR
Apart from kurta, salwar or leghenga which you might already have in your wardrobe, I would suggest that you shop for a saree this time for a change. This traditional drape never goes out of fashion and complements all body types.
While you might want to check for the fit of an outfit, saree is the simplest to purchase online. You can read the details about the material and washing techniques before clicking for the option that looks visually attractive. I came across a few styles on Myntra like –
▪Art silk traditional saree
▪Floral print saree
▪Georgette printed saree
▪Banarasi poly silk saree
These are perfect as occasion wear and yet quite trendy with modern patterns and motifs.
☆MIX & MATCH IDEAS
For quick fashion hacks I would suggest that you team up your saree with a croptop, tube or a singlet if you find regular blouse boring. This works best when stitching a blouse might take long at the tailor’s and a ready-made one might not fit you perfectly.
Jewellery helps to enhance the look of ethnic attires and add that extra grace and poise. Even if you do not want to go heavy on the neck, a pair of earrings like the traditional jhumkas ring in the diva quotient.
♡As a beauty hack, remember to select the length of the earrings based on your face shape. Heavier the face, bigger and more elaborate detailing the accessory needs to have in order to strike a balance.
When you wear traditional outfits, going minimalistic with your accessories is not an option. So this time of the year, go all out and enjoy yourself by wearing the colours and bling that you thought might be a bit over-the-top earlier. Festive fashion needs to be that way so simply have fun!
