DITCHING CLASSIC(s)

No matter how much I love dolling up in Indian wear, I never stop digging for comfortable options to replace them. Yeah! yeah! I know and I believe that fusion can never replace the authentic Indian wear, but the term COMFORTABLE does exist. Right?

Diwali is neither just Laxmi puja nor it’s a one-day festival. Its a marathon of parties which demands to dress up. Indian parties are never boring or flat. They never fail to run you out of energy. And if you are tired of dressing up already then its not the time to give up. It’s the time to spice up your dressing game. Amidst of all that naach – gaana, you don’t want your lehenga to stop you from having fun and yet get that vibe going?  Then its time to ditch classics and go fusion without compromising the elegance.

So, this Diwali while having all those limitations, my craving for perfect outfits lead me to global desi stores. I am in love with their festive collection. They have a wide range of indo-western with that right touch of elegance, matching my festive needs perfectly.

Look 1

I promised myself that this year I would wear a fusion saree to at least one of the festivities. Earlier, I thought I might have to style it from scratch. Then I got lucky with brands launching their own range of fusion sarees.

This one from global desi is a dhoti style saree with gold foil print all over it. With foil prints ruling this festive season, it didn’t let the elegance lack in this outfit. It can be paired with a bralette, crop top, peplum top, with a gold blouse or this top( which I wore) from the same collection. To finish the outfit I wore these block heels from the label life.

For makeup, I created gold shimmery eyes and kept it subtle with a nude lipstick

Quick tip:

Replace your stilettos with block heels or wedges to survive a little longer and to avoid heel cramps.

Look 2

Anything maxi makes me happy. No indo-western look is complete without adding a skirt outfit to it. I love pairing up my skirts in multiple ways. Except for the foil print, the color got me attracted to it. This shade of pink screamed happy at me. Unlike the other outfit, the foil print is more detailed and silver. Instead of pairing it up with something obvious, I used this gold Bardot crop top to compliment the outfit. For the footwear, I simply went barefoot for a simple reason that I absent-mindedly came out of the house wearing flip-flops. That surely doesn’t mean you have to go barefoot too. pair it up with some amazing juti’s or metallic pumps, wedges etc.

I finished the look by adding a silver statement neckpiece, a vintage anklet, and few bangles. Just to add a hint of color, I went with blue eyeliner for my eyes and pink lips.

So, that’s it for ditching classics this Diwali.
