6 Festive Style Lessons You Need To Learn From Celebrities This Diwali
The pre-Diwali fashion line-up kicked in at the start of last month with some of our favourite celebrities donning gorgeous ethnic looks. And as usual, there’s a lot we can take home from these style icons — because they don’t just dress to impress, but also tailor every trend to fit their own personality and comfort. That’s the best part!
While you scroll through the realms of Instagram, spotting ethnic celebrity styles you can totally recreate, here are 6 celebrity style lessons you really should keep in mind this Diwali.
1. Shine Bright
Since this is the festival of lights, why not light up your wardrobe with some bright colours that will stand out? The great thing about wearing brights is that they don’t need heavy work or shine to look Diwali dressy.
Bold paisley, floral or brocade prints will take that splash of colour up a notch.

2. Fusion friendly
Don’t hesitate to create an Indo-Western look with your ensemble. Play around with the traditional elements and create a contemporary twist. This could either be done by wearing your saree differently, pairing trousers with a choli, or simply wearing a basic tee with a heavy ghagra skirt.
The fusion approach is a modern spin on desi ethnic wear, making it a great fit for all you millennials.
3. Best Foot Forward
It’s important to prioritise comfort. Wear a pair of shoes that you’re comfortable in and not one that will leave you with blisters and really, really sad feet by the end of the evening. Stick to flats, or small heels that won’t hurt you or make your feet feel like jelly within 2 hours of slipping into them.
If you want to bring that fusion touch into your look, style your Indian wear with a pair of sneakers. Yes, you read that right. But if that’s too much for you, feel free to slip those feet into a pair of juttis.
4. Jewel Jazz
Jewellery can add so much oomph to a plain and simple outfit — whether you choose to wear a chunky necklace, a pair of jhumkas, or even stacked bangles or bracelets. The key with styling ethnic jewellery is to pick and choose the right amount — i.e. go for danglers or a statement necklace.
Any sort of jewellery with a little bit of bling, shine, or shimmer will add that right touch of glam to it!
5. Traditional twists
This is probably the safest option if you don’t want to be too experimental with your Diwali outfit. Go for styles and colours that are traditional and classic — the are ones that never go out of style.
A Kanjivaram saree and tussar silk kurti churidhar, aren’t just bound to your mother and grandmother. Hunt through the depths of their closets, and find yourself an elegant classic that will help you make an evergreen statement.
6. Pastel Power
Moving away from bright colours and of course the monochromes, you can also opt for pastels this Diwali.
Try colours such as light pink, pale yellow and mint, and layer on heavy jewellery that will simply add that Diwali dazzle to the outfit.
