#Diwali, the biggest and most important festival of Indian culture is round the corner, how could we not post a blog about it?
For those who are not aware about it, let us put some light on the festival of lights 😉
According to Hindu Mythology, Lord Rama defeated the evil Ravana and returned home on this day. Hence, every year during Autumn, Indians all across the world celebrate this day as a victory over darkness and evil. The festival extends to a five-day celebration, Diwali being the main, when people worship Goddess Lakshmi for prosperity and wealth. Diwali also coincides with the darkest, new moon night of Hindu calendar. The celebration mainly includes Rangolis, millions of lights and diyas (Lamps) shinning in every house and temple, family feasts, tons of sweets and fireworks. We are so happy that over the years people are being more responsible towards mother nature and the animals on the streets. We urge you all to please avoid the air and noise pollution by the fireworks.
We know what significance this festival holds for Indians. Dressing up in pretty ethnic clothes and family gatherings are some most important parts of the celebration, so here we are to share our ideas for this festive season.
For the first look, we picked one of Mum’s printed silk saree and stitched a Lahenga out of it and paired it with a Magenta colored dupatta. We wanted to create something off beat this festive season, and the color and print of the saree fits perfect for that. The silk material gives it a heavy look and hence we kept the accessories to minimal by adding a golden kada, chunky ring and earnings.
For the second look, we picked a high waist Palazzo pant in blue color and wore it with the same blouse (crop top) from the first look. This outfit is Apt for those who want to keep their look simple and chic. We call it ‘funky’ ethnic look. You can pick any plain or printed palazzo pant and team it up with a nice crop top or a blouse from a saree or lahenga, add some accessories and you are ready for the celebration.
Don’t have a blouse ready for the new saree you bought for Diwali?
Do you want to use that old saree in a different way?
Did not get the time to shop for the Festival yet?
Worry not!! We are here with a quick fix for you 😊
This one is our personal fav!! To get this look, all you need to do is wear a palazzo pant, a blouse/crop top (You can play around with the colors and prints) drape a saree around it and keep the pallu long enough to touch the floor. We picked a 3 Meter long Dupatta and used blingy border to give it a festive feel. If you are using a saree you can put pleats at the front (like we do in a half saree look) to use the extra length. It’s the ultimate solution for those who love wearing a saree but at the same time want something comfy and different. We highly recommend using quirky printed crop top and dupatta/saree for this look.
We hope these outfit ideas would help you dress up for the celebrations. Wish you all a very happy and safe Diwali people. May the festive season bring a lot of good health and happiness in your families. Share your festival looks with us on Instagram and Facebook. PLEASE say no to crackers and keep the environment pollution free 🙂
Loads of Love and hugs to you all ❤️❤️
