“If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.” – Victoria Erickson
It’s my favourite time of the year and the excitement levels are higher than the mountains. Beginning October when you start feeling that slight nip in the air, there’s this enormous amount of happiness rushing through my veins. There are so many things that I love about fall – the colour of the leaves, the smell of hot chocolate, the warmth of wool but above all, the celebrations that all of us joyous people indulge in.
Starting from Navratre, we have so many festivities that end with Christmas and New Year. The beautiful weather and never ending celebrations also mean several opportunities to dress up and show up. From the gorgeous Indian wears to the warm coats and mufflers, we have an entire season to look and feel our best.
Naturally, I had to share few quick Indian outfit ideas for the Diwali week and here goes the first one.
I recently (4-5 months ago) started exploring Label Ritu Kumar though I had obviously known about it earlier as well. I have a special penchant for their printed dresses and skirts and loved this gold pleated skirt with beautiful floral prints on it. This skirt looks festive and it is apt for fall as well. Best part is I can wear it to a Diwali party or puja and at the same time, pair it up with a leather jacket and boots and be ready for a Christmas dinner. Not investing in pieces like these would have made me regretful for a long time. Haha
I paired the gold skirt with an electric blue custom-made silk shirt, bringing about just the right contrast and vibrance to the look. Instead of my obvious options of gold jewelry, I opted for a multi layer long pearl necklace to go with the look. Nude heels were the perfect choice for this vibrant look but not without my favourite red lips.
This is the kind of Indo-western look I prefer for Diwali parties – you feel dressed up for a festival but are still all cool to shake your legs on a dance floor.
Tell me your thoughts in the comments section below.
I’ll be back with another Diwali look on the blog tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Until next time,
Stay stylish, Stay fabulous,
