I am sure all are set for Diwali with new clothes & the tempting delicacies made specially for the festival. I am excited too as it’s my first Diwali at Delhi 🙂 What I enjoy most about diwali is my mom’s handmade Chakali 😛
Diwali is always followed by wedding season ( another favourite of mine ) where we get to dress ethnic more often. As we all know, Indian tradition is no more restricted to sarees only . In fact we are the most versatile worldwide when it comes to ethnic wear.
Trends in fashion change over time, and that being constantly said, here I bring you trends this year that are going to bring in the sparkle in your festival delight like never before. I have created one of such looks and this time in my very own creation 🙂 ‘Renee Creations’ my own baby which I had formed and have been designing since I was at Mumbai.
About what I am wearing, is jacket made in pure georgette fabric with jardosi work all over and a lehnga in cotton silk. I had made it for my brother’s wedding and it still has the same charm even after 2 years. I am not too much accessories person but Delhi definitely has it so have tried to add some more bling with the kundan mang tikka,necklace & Jhumkas. You can carry this look for Diwali, wedding, reception, sangeet (provided it’s your family or close friends wedding ) You can’t look over the top in some general wedding right 😉

Shoot location– Qutab Minar is a soaring, 73 m-high tower of victory, built in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom. The tower has five distinct storeys, each marked by a projecting balcony and tapers from a 15 m diameter at the base to just 2.5 m at the top. The first three storeys are made of red sandstone; the fourth and fifth storeys are of marble and sandstone. At the foot of the tower is the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, the first mosque to be built in India. An inscription over its eastern gate provocatively informs that it was built with material obtained from demolishing ’27 Hindu temples’. A 7 m-high iron pillar stands in the courtyard of the mosque.
Few other looks which you can opt to step up your style game this festive and wedding season.
- Saree lovers , add a twist to your saree with a jacket or drape it like a girl boss. capes are also one of the hottest trend this year. You can add these capes over your blouse sarees, and lehnga/skirts. You can also opt for pre draped saree gowns 🙂
2. If you are someone who wants to experiment something different 😉 Go ahead try a dhoti with asymmetric kurta, jeans/palazzos/cigarette pants paired with an embellished jacket. For the ethnic soul with a bohemian spirit, I suggest pairing up palazzos with kurtas. Comfortable enough to move around, and stylish enough to make a statement.
3. For the classic ones, Anarkali is the best choice. Never out of style 🙂
4. For the bold divas in us who doesn’t care much for ethnic wear then here are some choices for you 🙂 Pair a crop-top with a maxi skirt with prints, A traditional off shoulder blouse with long skirt or lehnga. Sassy enough isn’t it 😉

With all these outfits you need to play with accessories. Necklaces being kundan, polka, diamond, gold. Chaandbaalis, jhumkas, temple jewellery and more. Whichever outfit ideas you choose make sure to accessorise right 🙂
I hope to have sorted out your most of the festival clothing insprations 🙂
With all those fireworks, the delicacies and the diyas all over lighting the atmosphere, step up your style game and bring on the shine 🙂
