Fusion Fashion for this Diwali

Beautiful scented candles have replaced the diyas, and the chocolates have taken over the mithais. How about replacing the typical saris and salwar kamees suits with some rather interesting fusion fashion this Diwali? It’s ethnic, yet modern…contemporary, yet traditional.

Flirt with the skirt: Swirl and twirl. Let the skirt replace that typical Salwar Kameez Suit. We recommend a long, flowing one. Also, embroidered skirts look breathtakingly stunning. You can either team the skirt with a short kurti or a knee-length one — a style that’s really ‘in’ right now. If you dare to go bold, team up the skirt with a strapless or crop top and up the hotness quotient. 

Pant pleasures: Palazzo pants have been really ‘in’ since a few years. Pairing them with spaghettis and other Western-styled tops is a little passé now. Today a number of Fashionistas are teaming up palazzo pants with long, knee-length kurtis. This marriage truly personifies ‘comfort meets style’. Long kurtis can also be paired with capris and a number of ankle-length pants. 

Fashion ideas for Diwali

Jeans’ scene: If you are someone who, literally, lives in her jeans and insists on wearing them even for Diwali (much to your mother’s dismay!), then go ahead! Pair your jeans with a short or long kurti, and then adorn it with a beautiful stole to give it that Indian touch. The stole replaces the Dupatta (and your mother’s frown with a smile!). We’d say, avoid ripped jeans or the ones with crazy patchwork. 

Accessories, et al: The smartest and quickest way to give any Western look an Indian touch is simply by wearing some interesting ethnic Jewellery. The pieces could be chunky, in oxidised or gold tones, dangling numbers, beaded ones… the list is endless. A Bindi can also create some magic. Don’t make it all look gaudy or wear so much that you look like a Christmas tree. Do it elegantly and intelligently.

Footwear fetish: Another easy way to render an Indian feel is by wearing Mojdis or Kolhapuri Chappals. As against the plain, typical brown shades, today Mojdis and Kolpapuri Chappals come in a range of bright colours and exciting designs and patterns. An anklet can add to the look.

So, this year, welcome the festival of lights with a little bit of this and a little bit of that!
