India is a land of ethnicity, where people follow diverse traditions and cultures. We celebrate so many festivals every year, and this time of the year is dedicated to Diwali, the festival of lights. At this time, we all start to visit our relatives’ house with a bundle of gifts to wish them all a very happy and prosperous Diwali, we also have crazy card parties, wherein we play the game of cards and pull in a small amount of money to make it more interesting, and we dance, party all night, binge on some sweets, and enjoy the company of our loved ones.
Amidst all the celebration, your style game has to be on point. Festival fashion demands comfort in what you are wearing, so I mostly opt out for those gorgeous long ethnic skirts from Fab India and pair them with sometimes a t-shirt or an ethnic choli. I hardly get a chance to wear Indian outfits other than it’s a wedding or a festival season like Diwali, so I pick my dresses wisely. I don’t go for heavy embroidered stuff, Fab India works best for me. In fact, this year instead of hitting the market, I dig a little deeper in my mom’s closet and found the most gorgeous things ever. Nothing could be better than wearing your mom’s pretty outfits. Don’t you agree?
In this look, I wore a plain black skirt with pink hemline from Fab India and paired it with a black tank top. Just to add some oomph to the look, I picked my old sleeveless jacket, which I picked from a flea market years ago and completely forgot about it. The striped jacket complimented my entire look, it totally depicts my personality. It’s carefree, comfortable and breezy, just like the way I am.
Green is one of the most vibrant and cheerful colours, it always helps me cheer up my mood even on a Monday. I wore this gorgeous handprinted ethnic skirt, which I bought from Chowki Dhani Jaipur with a tank top (again because I love tank tops, they are one of the most versatile clothing) and this time I dig deep in my mom’s closet and found this stunning glitter jacket from her teenage days.
This gorgeous sleeveless Indian Jacket is handmade, and it was made by my Nani (maternal grandmother) back in my mom’s college days. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love it and have paired it with so many other things by now, and trust me it looks great with almost everything. Especially, when I wish to create some Indo-Western styles 🙂
Orange is officially a festive colour, I stole this one too from my mom’s closet and I wore it as it is. It fits me so well, it was my mom’s Engagement Kurta, she was just like me not a big fan of those heavy Indian Wear so she wore this classy embroidered kurta at her Engagement. I love it so much, that I stole it and she is so generous that she does not mind. Paired it with a pair of simple black leggings and Kolahpuri Jutti, which is easily available in every local market for less than Rupees 200/-
All the looks that I created or I generally wear are not high on budget, so afraid not they won’t make a huge hole in your pocket. They are comfortable yet elegant, I believe style is a reflection of who you are, and these looks definitely say a lot about my personality.
Lemme know how you find these looks, will be happy to do more blogs like these as they speak volume about who I am and how I lead my life. I believe personal styling is a very important thing, and everybody should value theirs. Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous Diwali, may this festival of lights bring an abundance of happiness and positive vibes in your life. This season, be fashionably festive 🙂
