The festive season starts in India as soon as 15 days of Shraad Maas are over. Right from Navratri and Karva Chauth to Diwali – which happens to be the most-awaited festival. Diwali is a time to celebrate the homecoming of Lord Ram by lighting diyas and your hearts with divine purity. For the last two years, Diwali was spent under lockdown exchanging greetings with our loved ones on video calls. This Diwali is the perfect time to get dolled up and celebrate with pure joy and carefree spirit.
If you have been dreaming of wearing colorful and trendy Diwali sarees, it is the perfect time to flaunt them this festive season. But, if your Diwali sarees are biting the dust, here are how you can style them in four ways. This means you can flaunt each style on every day of the celebration.
The best part about wearing Diwali sarees is wearing trendy collections throughout the festivities. From sticking to traditional drapes to trying out sophisticated modern draping techniques, this festive season is your chance to experiment with your style.
- Look chic in the belted style: If you have worked out your sweat and blood in the gym, burning countless calories, now is the time to flaunt your perfectly toned body. Wearing a saree with a belt over it is the perfect way to show your hourglass figure. Because the belt is the most crucial accessory here, you must ensure you don’t pick a heavily embroidered saree. Drape a rather plain or sober-looking saree, perhaps a shimmery number, so you don’t have to settle for a toned-down look. Depending upon your saree, you can invest in gold, silver, or oxidized belt and tie it around your waist. The belt will become even more prominent if you opt for a short bralette-style blouse and wear a low-waist saree.
- Butterfly style: Flaunt your curves this Diwali by turning heads in a butterfly-style saree. Since most of the festivities during Diwali are held in the evening, you can opt for pastel sarees or those with bling all over them. This draping style will make you look taller and slimmer. An embellished arm candy such as a sleek clutch will work wonders for your look.
- Dhoti style: If you are trying to make your look memorable or aim to set your mark at the Diwali party, show up in a dhoti-style saree. These sarees are a massive hit among B’Town beauties, which is why you must try them. Wear fitted leggings or slacks underneath, ensuring a tighter hold on the drapes. Your stilettos or strappy heels would look perfect with this number.
- Gujarati style: If you want to stick to the tradition, the Gujarati drape is an iconic look you can channel at Diwali parties and pujas. Since you will be wearing a front pallu, you can pick up those sarees which feature heavily intricate designs and prints on the pallu. Keeping the pallu long or short totally depends on your style.
Be a trendsetter this festive season by looking stunning in these Diwali sarees.
