The festival season is all about playing with fashion and no festival is complete if you haven’t made additions to your wardrobe.

Diwali is upon us, and shopping activity is at its peak. It’s time to decide on the special outfit to flaunt on the big festival.

Diwali fashion is a mixture of traditional and modern wear. This year, give a break to those heavy-set saris and embellished kurtis and be the showstopper with contemporary styles. If you need some inspiration to fuel your imagination, here are some styling tips to help you rock this Diwali season.

For women’s collection, we have BIBA, designer Pooja Shroff, Aurelia, W, and Westside. For men, we have Tata CliQ and designer Sunil Mehra.

SUNIL MEHRA

This Diwali, opt for bright colours and go for printed brocade salwars or slim fit pants. For men’s wear, block prints are on offer and they blend well with kurtas or bandhgalas or even salwars. To add a little more spark, go for quirky accessories like cufflinks, collar pins indeed become an add-on to a basic festive look.

AURELIA

Floral all the way: Floral patterns are never old to be worn and this Diwali opt for a long ethnic floral dress which has a cape attached to it. To add up to the look wear statement earrings, strap heels and a funky clutch.
