What to wear this Diwali!

With Dusshera and Diwali fast approaching, the one thing I am excited about is shopping! I am sure many of us can't wait to dress up in colorful Indian wear and enjoy the festivities!

Though shopping is fun, Mumbai's traffic makes it a taxing task ! With little time to shop, I am worried about wasting whatever little time I've got  getting slogged through traffic.
This is one of the reasons I prefer online shopping .
Online shopping sites are a blessing for us lazy bunch . Infact I prefer to shop online rather than going to the malls,  they save so much of my time and energy-so why not!

With festivals just around the corner,  here are few tips on What To Wear this festive season:

For those who would prefer to stick to the traditional way, these are few outfits I would suggest:

Saree : You can never go wrong with a sari. This season is all about pastels and subtle designs, try a saree in peach,mint, lavender or camel color with a hint of shimmer or sparkle. Pair it with a boat-neck blouse,add a piece of jewelry or two and you are good to go! Handloom silk sarees are   making a come back. So raid your mom's or grandmom's wardrobe,I'm sure you'll find a good saree in there!

Lehenga Choli: Again I have been seeing a lot of pastel coloured lehengas of late - on the ramps, at the weddings, on Instagram-they are everywhere! It's good to see brides  ditching the traditional colors and trying on fresh colors and design.  Apart from Pastels, you can try something in purple,blue, canary yellow and deep pink.

Kurta, Anarkali, Pakistani Salwar Suits: Again go for bright colours, steer clear of reds and maroons, and make sure that the style and design suits your body type. Don't go for anything too heavy and gaudy. Keep it simple. Add on a heavy jewellery if you think your outfit is too simple.

 Apart from these traditional outfits, I would suggest mixing and matching Indian wear with western wear, like pairing a kurta with a maxi skirt, sari with a crop top or better yet, with a printed shirt! Dhoti pants go well with a crop top, or wear it with a solid t-shirt and a waistcoat. Pair wide-legged pants with a kurta or a kurti.

Coming to accessories, silver jewellery is making a splash this season, coin neck-pieces, jhumkas,silver bangles, earrings, anklets or payal as we call it, try wearing one or two from these and you sure will stand out from the rest.

At the end of the day, make sure you are comfortable in what you wear ,after all style is all about what comfort.
