Embrace Elegance

If you haven’t had the chance to take that kurta out and fault it, now is the time. Opt for a well-fitted kurta paired with churidar or tailored trousers. This is a classic fail-safe look that works every single time. If you’re tired of the conventional look, consider a short kurta paired with Aligadi trousers. Festive hues like royal blue, deep red, or emerald green are having a major moment at present.

 

Play With Patterns And Textures

Don’t be afraid to experiment with patterns and textures to add visual interest to your festive ensemble. Consider outfits with intricate embroidery, subtle prints, or textured fabrics. ”When diving into prints, ensure that the colours harmonize seamlessly. If you opt for a print-on-print look, stick to a palette of just 2-3 colours. To strike the right balance and maintain the experimental edge of your outfit, keep the colour scheme minimal,” says ace stylist Isha Bhansali. A kurta with contrast detailing or a jacket with intricate threadwork can elevate your look and showcase your attention to detail. Opt for a plain kurta layered with a printed cape, a long Jodhpuri jacket, or an embroidered dupatta for added glam.

 

Amp It Up With A Contemporary Fusion

If you prefer a more contemporary style, consider fusion wear that combines traditional elements with modern aesthetics. Pair a crisp, tailored kurta with jeans or chinos for a relaxed yet stylish look. Experiment with asymmetrical cuts, unconventional colour combinations, or fusion accessories to make a bold fashion statement.

 

Ethnic Jackets Are Always A Good Idea

For a contemporary twist on traditional wear, invest in a stylish ethnic jacket. Nehru jackets, bandhgalas, or embroidered blazers can effortlessly enhance your festive look without trying (or investing) much. Pair them with a simple kurta or shirt and trousers for a modern yet ethnic ensemble that strikes the perfect balance between tradition and trend. For a more modern look, consider a co-ord set with ethnic prints. “Diwali is a festival which draws everyone towards our cultural heritage. By merely slipping on a smart bandhgala jacket or an embroidered blazer one can transform even a simple Kurta set into something that is modern and suave and yet rooted in our traditions,” says designer Nitika Gujral.

 

Accessorise Thoughtfully

Accessorizing is the key to completing any look. For the festive season, consider adding accessories that complement your ethnic attire. A classic pair of mojris or peshawaries, a pair of suede chappals, a statement watch, and a well-coordinated pocket square can add the finishing touches to your ensemble. Don’t forget the importance of a well-chosen dupatta or stole for an extra touch of sophistication. For a versatile touch, wear silver kadas and rings with a black outfit and opt for golden accessories on pastel-coloured outfits.

 

Grooming Matters

A well-groomed beard, neatly styled hair, and a subtle cologne can enhance your overall appearance and confidence by a mile. If you are going for a more tailored look, use a styling gel or hair mousse. Remember, the devil is in the details, so pay attention to your grooming routine and gear up to look top dollar this Diwali.
