The last whole week has left me with a huge smile on my face. Diwali is by far my most favorite festival of all. The whole city is lit up. Happy faces everywhere. Festive fever grips one and all and the Indian version of ‘Happy Holidays’ is very evident in the true spirit!
The biggest question every year for Diwali is “What to wear?” Indian traditional wear is the dress code like always. But this year got me thinking as to why does it have to be typically traditional? Anarkalis, sarees, salwar kameez, kurtis etc we’re always looking for these options be it any Indian festival. This time I thought to myself “Why not try out something different?” I consciously ditched the typically Indian attire and started my hunt to find something trendy, not the regular run of the mill outfit but yet ethnic and festive. Voila! I landed my hands on this beautiful floor length marsala skirt and teamed it up with this heavily embellished net full sleeved crop top. The crop gave this look the Indian touch required for the festive season and the skirt gave it a modern feel. This fusion outfit was simply perfect for the Diwali season. What I love about it is that one can team up the crop top with a pencil skirt, palazzos or even a pair of well fitted jeans while the skirt can be paired with an off shouldered blouse, tee or even a formal shirt depending upon the occasion.
I know for a fact that this purchase is something that I will wear many times as a whole set and as separates. It’s not going to be one of those traditional heavy outfits, which we buy just for a festival or wedding and then dump it away by storing them in the attic till infinity! Multi-usage is the key in today’s time. Its called smart shopping!
