Traditional wears for women this diwali

Thursday, October 8, 2009

Let Diwali usher you into a new world of fashion. And to help you do that, we have the gorgeous husband and wife designer duo, Shruti and MangeshMangesh and Shruti, designers Pune Mahadev of Mai Studio. Both have done their post graduation in fashion designing and have worked as stylists and designers for several shoots, advertisements and serials. Mangesh has also designed for Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie for Mighty Heart. Here are the couple’s fashion fundas for Diwali.

Attires for women

This season bright colors like green, red, magenta, fresh yellow etc are in vogue. Also bright colors in contrast work well. So team up peacock blue with peacock green or magenta with green and let pastel shades take a backseat.

For Laxmi Pujan opt for traditional sarees like Banarasi, Kanjeevaram or Paithani. If you are looking for designer sarees then go for plain ones with nice borders or net sarees.

Blouses make a strong fashion statement. Be innovative by stitching layered blouses, or adding patchwork of gota work, brocade, lace or even ribbons. If your saree is heavy then try jute with leather or corduroy work. Styles of yesteryears like a bow in the back or a timeless corset can be worn on a skirt or a saree. A jacket on a transparent net saree with lot of work can look ultra chic.

For Dhanteras or Bhai Duj choose a salwar kameez with an Indo-western touch. In salwar kameez for the slim structured women the skin fitting ‘Mumtaz’ look is very in. Plain salwar kameez with contrast brocade borders and the high collared look with long sleeves looks good on the bigger built women. Two tone effect fabrics in weaves like mangalgiri and standalone jute silk fabrics with intricate embroidery are great choices. Spaghettis, halter styles or noodle straps are still popular this season. This should be avoided by the big built women who can opt for flared or transparent long sleeves.

To enhance the Indo-western look, paneled A-line or straight skirts with raw silk kurtis or corsets look pretty and festive. The kurtis can be later teamed with jeans for day to day wear. Brocade pants and kurtis or short kurtis with jackets look contemporary with an Indian touch.

Accessories for women

Salwar kameez or skirts can be teamed with stylish patchwork stoles.

Bright colors are not just confined to clothes but bags as well. Pink, red or beaded clutches with Swarvoski buckles are great picks this season. For a contemporary look, clutches in dull metallic colors look understated yet classy.

For heavy sarees avoid heavy neckwear if you are wearing chandelier earrings or danglers. If necessary wear delicate neckwear.

Artificial matching jewelry or with just one gram gold looks just as real and is quite affordable too.

For traditional sarees opt for kundan or jadao replicating the Mughal era or the traditional jewelry with antique polish for the classic royal touch. Anklets or kadas like the kathiawadis are big this season.

The latest ‘chik’ necklace that sticks to your neck looks funky on Indo-western clothing.

For hair accessories wear pins with Swarvoski stones.

In shoes, studded sandals in thin strappy designs with Swarvoski or flat chappals with elegant designs look great.

So dress in style this Diwali!
