Don’t restrict yourself to just shalwars and churidars. Multiply your options by choosing to team kurtis with coloured denims, leggings and tie-dye pajamas. A pair of cool jeggings will complement your kurta and become a great substitute for churidars. Besides, they’re comfortable and look great with a pair of metallic heels.

Drape a crushed dupatta in a refined way

Fireworks are a huge part of the season’s festivities and you need to be wearing garments that aren’t too loose when around them. Try draping a silk, crushed stole in an interesting way that won’t come in your way while you play with crackers. You can dress the look by adding vintage earring and bangles. It’s a great dressy look and safe around fireworks!

You always need a clutch to complete a great evening look and more importantly, to carry stuff. This Diwali, you must pick clutches in bright colours but with a hint of a metallic element. However, If you want to make the ultimate statement, keep your outfit fairly simple and avoid over-the-top heavy embroideries. Instead, accent the outfit with an embroidered purse or clutch.

While we all love shoes, you need to pay attention to your outfit. Choose your shoes wisely to avoid heavy chaos. If you are into the minimal look, try teaming a subtly festive outfit with ornate metallic shoes. Otherwise, a simple pair of metallic flats works beautifully with an intricately embroidered shalwar suit.

Cinch That Sari

Now, you hardly ever hear of belts being used in Indian wear, right? You could change that by using a thin metallic belt as a kamarbandh around the sari. It will hold the pallu in place while you enjoy the firecrackers and festivities. As a bonus, you get to show off your eclectic make-it-work sense of style.

All of these trick work best if you pay close attention to details in your look. Festivals are about having fun and enjoying the finest of things. Play with metallic elements and bling but remember that balance is key. Flipkart, this season is offering truckloads of festive wardrobe options with great deals. Pick and shop to your heart’s delight and MissMalini will help you look your best with tips and tricks.
