  • Dazzle like a Bollywood star this Diwali
 

One can refute the fact that when it comes to making sartorial statements, no one can do it better than our Bollywood denizens. So this Diwali, why not take a cue from these fashion savvy celebrities on ethnic dressing and dazzle just like them. 

 
 
Diwali is here. It’s time to figure out your looks for the festivities. We have whipped together some ethnic inspiration straight from tinseltown to ensure that you look nothing less than a patakha this festival of lights! Take a look…
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Evergreen Saris With A Twist

 
Yes, it is true that the traditional six yards will never go out of style and there is nothing more elegant than a sari to add sparkle to your festive looks. Seek inspiration from the fashionista Kangana Ranaut, who has ruled the sari trend throughout the year. 
 
 
 
For her fiery Aap Ki Adalat interview, the actress was seen sporting a powder blue coloured handpainted Sabyasachi floral saree from The Udaipur Collection of Spring Couture 2017, which she teamed with a white gold brocade blouse. Now this can be a perfect look to duplicate for this festive season, especially if you are the kinds to vote for simple and elegant. 
 
Or one can opt for a little contemporary version of this traditional ensemble. And if you are a denim lover, you are in for a pleasant surprise. Denim saris have become a big rage in the fashion circuit. You can opt for one and drape it in an interesting way to add an edge to your festive look.
 

Anarkalis Are Still Hep

 
Anarkalis have not gone out of fashion either and can be worn to make heads turn this Diwali. But like the sarees, Bollywood divas have added interesting twist to this staple festive outfit. Anarkalis have become more dramatic with the bottom flares becoming bigger and the sleeves adding to the flowy silhouettes.  
 

Sexy Slits

 
Long slits are no longer a prerogative modern dressing, they are making their dominance felt in ethnic styles too. Check out how the likes of Shilpa Shetty, Bipasha Basu and 
Dia Mirza are rocking this ethnic trend. 
 
 
 

Get Caped 

 
Be it on the runway or off the ramp, capes are the in thing at the moment and perfect to add some elegance and splendour to your Diwali celebrations. Easy to wear, capes can be embraced by anyone and can be styled with either jeans and top, kurtis to long dresses to create a cool indo-ethnic look. You can take cue from Parineeti Chopra, Daisy Shah, Taapsee Pannu and Aditi Rao Hydari on how to ace the cape look this festive season.
 
 
 

Asymmetric Kurtis

 
Kurtis with asymmetric patterns and distinctive cuts are currently the hottest ethnic wear trend in B-town. You can pair them with Patiala, leggings, palazzos or any other trending style. Take style notes from Shilpa Shetty, Zahira Wasim, Neha Dhupia, Gauhar Khan and others.
 
 
 
 
 

Men’s ethnic fashion

 
While there are so many new ethnic trends available for women, our men folks don’t have to make the compromise with their staple kurta pajama or the typical sherwani. There is a plethora of options for men too in the ethnic department. Asymmetrical kurtas, jackets, bandgalas, oversized pyjamas, dhoti pants, khadi, there are many looks that guys can opt for this festive season. Seek inspiration from stylish Bollywood men like Irrfan, Arjun Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Kunal Kapoor, and others.
