Diwali is one of the most important festivals of Hindus and a woman definitely wants to look her best on this day. There is a lot of importance attached to wearing new clothes on Diwali. Some dressing up options for the big festival are suggested:
1. Wear a ghaghra choli. There is a lot of variety to choose from. There is a whole lot of lehngas available in the market. My pick would be a net lehnga with heavy zardozi work and a brocade blouse in contrast colour.
If you want to keep it smart yet not spend too much. I advise picking up a blouse piece and going in for a plain skirt of any fabric that suits you. A tissue border on a plain fabric also makes it look grand.
2. Another option is to go for a sari. There is no dearth of designer saris available. You may go in for an ethnic hand-woven sari or any of the designer saris. A seedha pallu or a fancy drape is what is required to give you an edge above others.
A cheaper option is to go in for a heavy blouse and team it with a simple mukesh saree Old hand woven sari pallu really makes a smart fabric for blouse.
3. Kurtis are really in. For a smart indo western look you can combine an ethnic looking kurti with a flowy salwaar or slacks or a pair of trousers. To add a pinch of style you may get a garara or a sharara stitched with the kurti.
