These Diwali looks by Joyita Dey are just perfect for events like Dhanteras, Chhoti Diwali, card parties, and everything else. This festive season, do not light a patakha but be a patakha instead, and try these fun Diwali looks. Joyita Dey is here to show you 5 different outfit ideas and we are sure you would definitely find something that suits your style. So, let’s begin!
1. Something dramatic!
Well, you can try this look with wide-legged pants, Palazzos, or even a jumpsuit. Pick a bright coloured bottom, and pair it with a contrasting off-shoulder top. You can pick a printed top or one with ruffles or balloon sleeves too. Wear a studded choker, play with statement rings if you want, and tie your hair up. Either do a smokey eye or go ahead with a classic red lip. Wear your heels and damn, you'll look so pretty!
2. A fusion enough to light up the room
This look is one of our favourites and is perfect for those who like to keep it a little extra. Wear your favourite Lehnga and pleat the pallu quite several times. Now, tuck it around the waist of the lehenga and bring the remaining pallu over the shoulder and pin it. Add some more festive vibe by wearing a studded necklace or a Kundan neckpiece as a belt. Adorn your neck with something heavy if you are wearing a plain blouse, and do not forget to wear a maang tikka for a pure festive vibe. Keep your makeup minimal, or maybe play a little with your eyes.
3. Wear saree like Lehenga!
Keep it subtle and wear a saree to turn heads. A little change in the draping style can do a lot to a saree, and that's why we suggest you give this one a try. Wear how you usually wear a saree, but instead of placing the pallu over the shoulder, wear it like a dupatta. This one will give you a Lehenga look. Ensure that you wear a printed or an embroidered blouse as it will be visible. Adorn with a choker or any necklace. Keep your hair open or do a side braid. Carry minimalistic makeup and go for Kohl's eyes. Wear rings, bracelets, heels, and you are ready.
4. A drape that won't disappoint!
This one is another fab look if you are a saree fan, and can be done with a regular saree of 6 yards too. You can even try this drape over a pair of pants as this style is simpler, as compared to the traditional technique. Start by pleating, and then pin it to secure the pleats. Now divide your saree into 2 unequal parts. Make a knot with the side that you had pleated and tuck it inside. Now, take the other side of the saree and wrap it around your waist at back, and bring the end from front to right side, and tie a knot of the saree here. Do the same with the other side and finally place the pallu on your shoulder. Feel free to wear a Kamar bandh or heavy jewelry if you want. Apply a highlighter, and go ahead with a bun or leave your hair open.
5. A shimmery dress is always in!
There are many ways you can wear your Lehenga, other than the regular way, and turn it into something totally different. Tie your Lehenga string around your neck, and you will get the exact same look in the picture above. Since you are wearing only one piece here, ensure that you accessorize it with a belt, heavy neckpiece to make it look festive, and wear bangles in one hand if you are a bangle person. Wear your heel, go ahead with bold lips, and style your hair with studded pins or other hair accessories.
