Hello, folks! I’ve recently posted about Diwali dress ideas and shopping smart this season! The festivities of Diwali includes invitations for different parties that may not always be traditional in approach. So, as you are allowed to break some rules, I ensure I have multi-purpose garments to be used for various occasions. In my earlier post, I combined this outfit with a yellow jacket. And, for those informal parties where you might need to shake a leg, I prefer a light-weight garment. So, when I am in a hurry, I ditch the jacket and add earrings or a statement necklace to jazz up the outfit. As this outfit is also in two shades with a sheen, I did not want a loud appearance. My style statement is to keep it simple and neat. You can certainly combine the dress with statement jewellery pieces, accessories or add a pair of glamour heels to rock the look and add your own touch!
When it comes to a Diwali fashion dress, bright loud colours always dominate the scene. These colours reflect the joy of Diwali. But, often, my bright outfits end up being unused all throughout the year. I always love combining different looks and experimenting to ensure I have more options to dress up without the constant need to buy things.
We had a ball clicking these photos. As a blogger, I had my share of funny moments in the crowd wherein most people unaware of the concept of blogging stared in curiosity. As you can see, my dress crumpled up a bit after a long drive in the Bangalore traffic. If you are a Bangalorean, you would surely be used to this by now.
What have you shopped for your Diwali outfit? I’d like to know. Do drop by on my social media channels and I’d love to hear from you! Wish you a Happy Diwali!
