The festival of lights is almost upon us and the preparations for the big festival have begun. If you haven’t found the perfect Diwali outfit yet then here’s a tip.

For those who haven’t found time to go shopping, check out these fashion trends and head to your favourite shopping app to find and add some of these items to your cart, or just grab some of the clothing items from your wardrobe, throw them on together and make a day of it!

Here are some gorgeous outfit ideas that will bring out the divine diva in you this Diwali.

Drape it with a dhoti

A printed crop top to get in trend with the world, combined with a matching dhoti ‘that has pockets!’ is sure to make heads turn.

Drape a dupatta or cloth over this like a Saree and you have the perfect Diwali outfit!

One-shoulder tops

Looking for a trendy Diwali outfit? Grab a one-shoulder top and pair it with a palazzo or parallel pair of pants, some rustic jewellery and Voilà, could you BE any more dressed up for Diwali?

Bandhani’s back

Got a top from a Lehenga outfit sitting in your wardrobe that you never found an occasion to repeat after a cousin’s wedding?

Now’s the time to take that out and pair it with a flowy Bandhani skirt or pants and put on the most dangling pair of earrings you have in your jewellery box. Set the stage on fire this Diwali!

Max that Tunic

A halter-top that is also a tunic and flows all the way down to your ankles like a flowy dress? Get out of here!

A halter-neck maxi tunic, slit from the front and the sides from the waist-down are totally in fashion and will elongate your legs. Pair this with parallel pants and block heels and you have a gaudy Diwali outfit right there!

Vintage classics

Nothing says elegant like simple European-Indian aesthetics in shades of white or pastels with a little bit of self-colored embroidery or a tad bit of sequin decoration.

A ruffled sleeved blouse with simple handcrafted designs would pair extremely well with a plain long skirt for Diwali.


An ivory coloured blouse with little mirrors embroidered on top would pair really well with a dark red, maroon or navy blue draped Saree.

All shades between white and beige would look good with the combination and the same can also be reversed with a darker shade blouse with embroidered mirrors with a light coloured cloth draped over.

Embellished belts

A grey blouse with gathered detail at the waist, wrapped in an embellished belt would make a style statement this festive season.

Try pairing this with a pair of palazzo pants and rock your Diwali outfit!

Peplums and palazzos

A dark chikankari or embroidered peplum top with champagne coloured pants will get you in the mood for a picture marathon this festive season.

Top this up with a dramatic cluster ring and you’re ready!
