If there is something that most of us, including you, are actually looking forward to this year is Diwali. It’s been a difficult year for all of us due to the pandemic, and while the Diwali celebrations will also look different this year, it will still be a great way to break the monotony of life at present.
One of the most intricate parts of Diwali is the joy of dressing up and getting ready for Diwali. Upgrading your wardrobe for the long season of festivities must be something you always look forward to every year, right? While this time most festive events and celebrations will be an intimate and physically distant affair, our most important advice for 2020 is to be comfortable in what you wear.
To help you ace all your Diwali looks without compromising on the comfort of the wear, we bring you seven festival wear ideas that will surely get all the eyeballs on you. Let’s begin!
1. Style your monochrome kurtas with a floral dupatta
If you do not want to go overboard this Diwali, pick pastel hues like our ombre dyed Kota Doria woven Kurtas. The complementing floral printed dupatta just adds a subtle charm to the simplicity of the Kurta, making it the best traditional dress for Diwali celebrations, especially the day ones.
2. Play it subtle with comfy cotton suits
This time around you’ll most probably be having a close-knit Diwali celebration at home with only a few family and friends. With the lockdown making most of you embrace the luxury of comfortable clothing, one of the best Diwali dress ideas is to strive for a relaxing look.
So, traditional cotton suits are great to style up without compromising the ease of comfy wear. Block prints look ethereal and when coupled with the goodness of finest cottons, they will make perfect ensembles for all-day, at-home Diwali festivities.
