Diwali is the time of the year you can indulge in traditional Indian wear and make heads turn in whichever social gathering you step into. So, light up this festive season with your attire and up the style quotient a few notches.

Want to know how? Read on:

1. Kurta Pyjama

A classic, you can never really go wrong with the simple kurta pyajama. Truly ethnic and traditional, a silk kurta in a single shade, coupled with a plain pyjama can make you look really suave if carried off well. Experiment with the colour to add a slight sparkle to your look.

2. Churidaar

If you are the style icon of your circle, do not miss out on a well-fitted churidaar to complement a long silk kurta this Diwali. Not only does it look sophisticated, this attire also grabs the eyeballs especially of the fairer sex, whichever party you head to!

3. Jodhpuris

This one is sure to give you that grand entrance into any party. Typically meant for a celebration that is a bit high-end, the ‘band gala’ style of Jodhpuris matched with a pair of camel skin ‘jootis’ will give you all the attention that you can ever ask for.

4. Waistcoats

Totally suave, opt for one in a material that matches the festive mood. Get the waistcoat in silk or brocade, with a colour that goes well with your complexion.

5. Denim and Kurta

If the party is a casual gathering of friends, get ready for a new twist. Wear a dark or bright coloured kurta along with a pair of jeans to make a cool impression at the Diwali get-together.

6. Pathani

You can go for an easy style such as those of pathani suits for a relaxed look this festive season. The material, however, makes all the difference. Since, it is already time for winters, try it with a thicker fabric but make sure the garment falls well.

7. Dhoti

You could get really adventurous this Diwali, as you dress traditionally. Don the very traditional dhoti and kurta, and do it with panache. Make the fashionably comfortable combination in silk and then, you are all set to win hearts.

Get ready to make a style statement this Diwali. With a range of unique styles and combinations to choose from, let your wardrobe sparkle and you shine at all the celebrations you become part of. Enjoy Diwali!
