Your one-stop guide to dressing up this Diwali


The festival of lights is just a week away, and if you, like many of us, haven’t had the time to decide what you want to wear for this auspicious occasion, this latest style guide for Diwali is for you. Featuring drool-worthy trends for men, women and kids, the sheer elegance and grandeur of these outfits will let you define your style. Read on to know more…

Outfits for men

Kurta sets are perhaps the most popular men’s ethnic outfits for Diwali. Think of them as your blank canvas. You can add more interest to them by adding a dupatta, mojaris or juttis, a Nehru jacket, or any other accessory that will uplift your look and get you ready to celebrate in style.

These kurtas from Melange by Lifestyle are the perfect contemporary styles to take your ethnic wear to the next level. The green straight kurta is designed with a band collar and full sleeves, and is covered with bold, eye-catching prints. For a simpler take, try the short blue kurta. The relaxed design has a band collar and roll-up sleeves.

Any kurta looks more stylish topped with a Nehru jacket. If you like a dressier appearance, try the multi-coloured jacket from Melange by Lifestyle. It is detailed with a heavy floral print.

Women’s Outfits for Diwali

Women always have a wider variety of ethnic styles to choose from and this Diwali dress guide has three stunning looks any woman would adore.

If you describe your style as elegance in simplicity, this gorgeous kurta set from W will give you a sophisticated appearance this Diwali. Made in an easy-breezy mustard yellow fabric, the A-line kurta comes with a band collar, three-quarter sleeves and elaborate embroidery on the bodice trailing off to the bottom of the kurta. Wear it with the matching mustard yellow palazzo pants with embroidery on the hems.

Although colour plays a role in how appealing ethnic wear looks, subtle hues can look as grand without catching too much attention. This Melange by Lifestyle lehenga-choli set is ideal for such a look. The choli has a V-neck and three-quarter sleeves, with the front adorned with white and yellow embroidery. The same embroidery graces the lehenga. It also comes with a sheer dupatta.

Another outfit from Melange by Lifestyle, perfect for Diwali, is the wine-red blouse and palazzo set. This matching set comes with a sleeveless ethnic blouse to go with flowing palazzo pants. Both pieces are embellished with gold ethnic prints. Take it up a notch with the flared sheer cape.

Kids’ Ethnic Wear

Picking the best ethnic wear for kids means striking the right balance between style and comfort. This is what Global Desi, Biba and Melange by Lifestyle do so well.

Your little princess will look gorgeous in the emerald blue lehenga-choli set from Global Desi. The rich fabric stands apart because of the colourful intricate prints. The peach pink dupatta will add some colour to the festive-ready look.

Biba’s orange kurta set is another adorable look your budding fashion diva will enjoy wearing. Covered with floral prints, the A-line kurta and sharara pants make a comfortable yet stylish look for Diwali. This ensemble also comes with a matching dupatta.

Your boys can choose from colourful options too. Melange by Lifestyle’s dark blue straight kurta has dhoti pants instead of the standard churidar. The embroidered lime green kurta with roll-up sleeves, paired with white pyjama pants, is another classic look for him to pull off this Diwali.
