With the end of the dreary monsoons, the festive season will hit the country in full force. Eid just ended and Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri, Diwali are on their way. This means two things. For one, poojas and parties are endless and secondly, your wardrobe suddenly seems empty. That’s where we come in. At Team MissMalini, we feel the wardrobe pinch too and a mass shopping spree doesn’t always help. To solve the problem, we turned to some of our favourite celebrity looks and found out exactly where to get them. Anushka Sharma, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor and Frieda Pinto were spotted in five distinct festive looks and they’re all available on Exclusively.com. Here’s how they fit into your festival wardrobe…
Anushka donned this suit by Kavita Bhartia for one of her promotional rounds.The great thing about this look is that it’s formal enough for that grand Ganesh darshan at your friends house and chic enough for those all night festive parties.
You’re always meeting a lot of family during the festival season. A simple kurta over wide leg pants is not only appropriate for the occasion, it’s also comfortable enough to wear through the day as you trek from function to function. Freida wore this AM:PM number to meet the Prime Minister, and if he approves, so will your relatives!
Let’s not forget the innumerable weddings that fill up your calendar during the latter part of the year. Whether it’s your best friends wedding or your distant cousins, if it’s a wedding you need to dress the part. Sonam in this Anita Dongre lehenga suit gives you the solution to this very fashion dilemma!
Besides the opulent weddings and the casual family visits, the festive season brings with it several semi-formal social functions like pujas and luncheons. These occasions require you to walk the fine line between being OTT and under-dressed – that’s when Madhuri’s Rohit Bal set comes into play. Dainty, elegant and semi-formal at the same time, it’s bound to be a festival favourite.
Yellow is being touted as a favourite colour this season and clearly the stars are picking up on it! While you have a casual, yet chic option in yellow hues (see Freida Pinto), it’s also great to have a formal look in this vibrant colour to carry you through the festive season. Sonakshi hits the trend nail on the head in this Anita Dongre number, which you could wear to just about any festive outing.
