It is that time of the year again when women would come out in all their fineries to celebrate the festival of lights with complete festive fervour. Yes, it is Diwali! During this festive season, women go crazy looking for trendy and fashionable ideas to look their best, especially the soon-to-be brides and newlyweds.
And we know that many of you are doing the same right now, so let us help you out. All you need to do is just keep these tips in mind and there you go!
One of the most important things that everyone needs to keep in mind is your skin. To glow from within, you need to resort to only those beauty treatments that are tried and tested by you. Get suitable facials done at least two days before Diwali to get the required glow. Apart from this, you also need to make sure that you are done with other things such as waxing, pedicure, and manicure as well.
Dear ladies, you do not have to go around buying expensive designer duds, just because you think they look good always. If you are clear on how you would like to look this festive season, then start scouting for relevant materials in your favourite colours, and get them stitched by your trusted tailor. You can also get a printout of dresses that you like and give those to your tailor. Remember, opt for clothes, which flatter your body type. Never go for figure-hugging wear as an extra effort to look slim. Tight-fitted clothes would make you look and feel uncomfortable on such a festival like Diwali.
There should be some playfulness, quirkiness and elegance in your Diwali outfits. You should learn to experiment with different silhouettes, have variations on the hemlines, and focus on elegant drapes. The silhouettes could range from panelled suits to floor length anarkali to A-line lehenga, lehenga saree or ghagra choli. Also, there are a lot of different ways in which you can drape your traditional saree. So, try something out-of-the-box this time.
Give the traditional festive shopping an interesting twist by going for fusion dressing. To give an Indo-western feel to your Diwali look this year, you can opt for a saree with an off-shoulder blouse. Or, you can also go for a structured kurta or a traditional choli with cigarette pants, dhoti pants or palazzo pants. All these attires can be accentuated with delicate elements and detailing such as zardosi work or use of beads, stones, pearls and laces.
Ladies, retro styles are back in fashion, so raid your mom's jewellery box and dig out the jhumkas, chokers, maang teekas and anklets. These beautiful pieces will help to accentuate your look, no matter what you pick to wear. But, do not try to wear everything at one go, especially if you have chosen a heavy and dazzling attire. In a case like this, go for statement jewellery.
Well, if you have planned everything with perfection then do not ignore your footwear. A good footwear can make or break your entire look. So, leave some budget aside to invest in a beautiful footwear that complements your dress and enhances your look. Buy yourself a nice pair of Punjabi juttis or strappy heels to go with your ethnic wear. While you can opt for pumps or peep toes to match an Indo-western outfit. If you have basic colours such as nude, black, white, silver, gold and cherry tone, you just need to pick one and there you go!
