Good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, light over darkness – Diwali, or the Festival of Lights brings with it all these triumphant messages of celebration. Observed widely as part of the Hindu calendar but enjoyed by everyone around the world, Diwali is the time when houses and temples get lightened up with candles and when fireworks lighten up the darkest night before the new moon rises.
Although witnessing the pollution that ensues soon after the frenzied fireworks display on Diwali, many prefer to abstain from causing more harm to the environment. And rightfully so, when you know that fireworks can take place in the fashion domain instead, when you adorn yourself with the elegant and classy Diwali look and walk in in your diva avatar. It is the sparkle in your eyes and not in the fire-crackers, it is the glitz in your accessories and not in the sky – that will lighten up the Diwali evening this year! So read below to be ready to have the ‘wow’ factor this Di-wow-li!
The jewel in the style crown to woo and wow all onlookers this Diwali is no doubt the carmine pink Kalidaar Lehenga with thread embroidery on it. With sequins embroidered border all around the hem, the lehenga is destined to make eyes drool. The blouse is made of embroidered net with keyhole detailing and buttons at the back. Finally, the carmine pink sequins embellished net dupatta was ready to be fluttered in the October breeze.
Carry fireworks or sweets or your lipsticks or makeups – that is something you can choose. But holding on to a bag to conclude your Diwali look is compulsory. For me, I got hold of a Japanese beads and fine dabka Zardosi hand embroidered pure velvet pouch with a bottom tassel, wristlet and long chain from nowhere else but Lovetobag.
Decked up in the lehenga, I took a few graceful steps and swirled. The after effect left behind by the volumes of the lehenga created the ripple of style in the air it stirred. Do something seismic this Diwali, shun the fireworks and spare the air this time. Don the lehenga and brighten up the Earth this time.
