Diwali is around the corner and you are in a frenzied state regarding your wardrobe. What outfit should you wear? Is beige still in? Isn't Navy blue too redundant now? Whether your style is subtle or sassy, we have the perfect colour and style fix from your favourite stars this Diwali.
1. Pearly Whites - Bipasha Basu and Alia Bhatt
No, we aren't talking about your teeth here. Ivory, porcelain, egg shells are all colours that fall under the white palette. Often considered a subtle colour to be worn by the older generation, white is, in fact, the perfect colour to offset metallic tones or brighter colours.
Take a cue from Bipasha Basu and wear a breezy white lehenga with light silver work. Add a bit of shimmer with embroidered silver juttis and chand baali earrings.
If you want to up the glamour quotient another notch, take a hint from Alia Bhatt. Wear an ivory-toned flare lehenga with floral embroidery. Keep your look fuss-free and pretty. Keep it simple with minimal makeup and statement juttis.
2. Sunshine Yellow - Shilpa Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia
If you are someone who recoils in horror at the idea of wearing a yellow tint on Diwali, we are here to prove you wrong. Yellow doesn't only come in the shade of mustard and canary. Lemon and butter are, in fact, shades that make you stand out from a crowd of jewel-toned reds and blues. Yellow is a trending colour right now, with everyone from Kajol to Alia Bhatt having been spotted wearing it.
Take style inspiration from Shilpa Shetty and wear a yellow suit with gota work. Light embellishments make the outfit classy. The lime yellow shade is just right and doesn't overpower. Pair this suit with simple juttis and go easy on the jewellery.
If you want to add a different colour to your outfit while practising restraint, take a cue from Tamannah Bhatia's yellow lehenga. Rework this look for Diwali by replacing this lehenga with a lemon yellow sharara set. Instead of a bright green dupatta, a sea green dupatta is soothing to the eye. Delicate hand embroidery on the front makes this outfit classy. Complete the look by adding turquoise earrings and light blue juttis.
3. Pretty Pinks and Peaches - Aditi Rao Hydari and Raveena Tandon
The pink-peach palette is something which never goes out of style. Fuschia, magenta, coral have always been favourites for festive outfits. However, it is the lighter tones of blush pink, baby pink and peach which have been making comeback this year. We definitely think that these are the colours you should try this Diwali.
Look stunning like Aditi Rao Hydari by wearing a blush pink gharara suit with gotta patti. Complete this outfit with silver juttis and a matching embroidered clutch.
If you want to try an Indo-western outfit this Diwali, take a cue from Raveena Tandon's peach jumpsuit. Accessorize with a delicate coral clutch and pair it with plain juttis with minimal work. The outfit is both comfortable as well as chic.
