Pastel-Colored Chinos And Whites Above

Pastel hues make your personality shout out aloud, yet nothing extravagant or outrageous. Chinos, ankle lengthed, paired with a white short length Kurta, a Shirt or a tee, is sure to keep you comfy through the evening and is festive enough for an occasion like Diwali. Sporting them with a pair of traditional Pehawari Sandals would definitely complete the look. A quick tip, go for the darker or mild shades of beige and skip the blacks this once.

Shirts & Trousers Are Equally Good

Who says that shirts and trousers are to be kept for work? Well, they go equally well with the festive vibes too. A simple trick is to forget the stripes and checks for these days. Instead, wear solid shades and colors. A white Mandarin Collared shirt paired with a dark blue trouser is sure to rock your festive look. You can choose to flip it as well, you know, with something dark above and a milder Khakee shade below. Either way, it's comfortable enough and looks subtle and trendy, both at the same!

Being exuberant about the latest fashion is one of the many ways to explicate your confidence. Those who are aware of the latest trends, "The Chic Ones", mostly rise above the rest in a crowd of many. Their persona is something that the world looks up to. And to be what you are, by displaying the wish and desire to look different yet the best is the true meaning of festive couture! 


The Fashionista's Way

Festivals like Diwali call for extravagance in fashion. And those who like it Chic enough can always go for a full-blown effort at dressing up. To start with, choose the pair of coolest shoes first, put in elements of color here, casual or formal, choosing bright colored shoelaces would add some more fun to those dull ones as well. Stepping up to the bottoms, a nice pair of rugged denim or the trendiest pants in your wardrobe is sure to bring out an appeal. Further, do it with a round neck white tee, printed or embossed, a little bling won't harm but only add to the festive look in your personality. To make the clock stop for you, layer up a nice casual blazer, short in length, the lightest shade of grey or blue & something that's more in romance with the entire look and nothing all about itself. Voila! The showstopper's set!

Those Quirky Trail Cut Kurtas & Sherwanis

What's new in the fashion street, trail cut uppers! If you've not come across any lately, then you don't belong to the world of fashion. The trail cut goes just fine with everything you throw along. But the trick lies in choosing the colors. Printed floral shades are a no-no with these. Instead, go for solids and darker shades! Go with contrasting bottoms and complete the look with a pair of traditional footwear, Juttis, sandals or simple Kolahpuris would be just as fine. Defining fashion and comfort on the same page, this combination is right out of the fashion lookbook for you!

All Guns Blazing With Jodhpuri Suits

A Jodhpuri Suit is always fashionable for festivals like Diwali. Yet choosing something subtle and nothing too blingy is the key. Accessorizing it with a cool pocket square is also suggested, but even without it, it's just fine. Also, make sure that you pair it with a Rajasthani Jutti to complete the look. And your Diwali appearance is going to be far from quaint, but elegant and fashionable instead. For those who love to go all guns blazing, it paints an entire picture of your personality at once.
