As the famous saying goes, “Don’t light a Pataka, be one instead”, this Diwali season we have got your back. With Diwali knocking on our doors, we have so many occasions lined up: Dhanteras, Chhoti Diwali, Diwali, Cards Party, etc. With everyone flaunting their desi looks, you would clearly want to steal the show with your amazing Diwali outfits. Now, you can do that by loving your own self but with a desi twist. Whatever your style, mood or comfort zone, we are going to show you ten unique outfit ideas and you will definitely find one that works for you. 

1. The Pant style saree

This is the best of both worlds. Switch your petticoat with a pair of pants and drape your saree around it. It is stylish, looks great and is super comfy to carry. Loved by the millennial generation, this saree style would be pretty good for your Diwali parties.

2. The belt for perfection

Your six yards of saree can be tons of oomph and gorgeousness if you try this look! Fix the pallu with any statement belt and kick the magic of your ethnic fashionable avatar up by a few notches! This look is excellent for women who want to walk the fine line of sexiness and elegance. 

3. The Superhero cape

Be the fashion hero the world is waiting for! A sheer cape over the blouse is what the style world needs to break the monotony of a standard drape! The cape can be made of net or mesh. The see-through fabric provides the blouse with its due credit and keeps things exciting on the fashion front.

4. The Upfront Pallu saree

If anything, that deserves a place in your closet now, it is a gorgeous silk saree! Because this type looks stunning in silk! Keep the pallu in front and let the beautiful zari border make the point for your advanced-garde sartorial selection! Depending on the saree blouse, you can keep it pleated or open. This is very much similar to Gujarati-style saree draping but much more desirable and of course, more elegant.

5. A kurta with wrap-around pants

The cape kurti or a long shrug kurti can amazingly be worn along with wrap-around pants. A silky silhouette is what we need precisely here along with statement jewellery and trinkets to add that bohemian appeal to your Diwali look. These comfy pants sexily compliment to laid-back vibes during a party.

6. Kurta with dhoti pants

Ofcourse! Dhoti pants are such in trend! The peplum kurtis or flared short ones are awesome to be paired up with the trendy Dhoti-pants. Just pick the most pop-coloured Dhoti Pants and don’t forget to add high heels with this top-of-the-charts look. This Diwali outfit is surely one of the best and will get you so many compliments.

7. Kurti as a dress 

boho-chic style Kurtis are a hit this festive season regardless of how you wear them. Cue this multicolored kurti with 3/4th sleeves, that you can wear as a dress to a day-time celebration. Since the outfit is filled with abstract prints, it’s better to keep the outfit as a statement and pair of stylish earrings to complement the whole look.

8. Lehenga with a dupatta

Create an indo-western fusion look by wearing a trendy belt along with your lehenga. This ensures that your dupatta stays in place while giving the look a hint of sexiness! Belting up technique is for all those who like to keep up with the latest trend. Always pick statement belts as they will look amazing with your outfit.

9. Lehenga skirt with a trendy top

You can easily ditch the traditional lehenga blouse and mix and match your skirt with a sexy top. From shirts to dramatic crop tops – there are so many choices out there! If the lehenga is heavily embellished then you can wear it with a plain top for a balanced look. For a chic look, you can also wear it with an off-shoulder or a cold-shoulder crop top.

10. Pair it up with a jacket

Lehenga jackets are so much in rage and catching up this festive season. Similarly, you can simply ditch your dupatta and wear an embellished contrast-coloured jacket. Also, you can pick a fancy multi colored or metallic short shrug too! It’s your choice. This chic fusion look will never let you go out of sight!
