Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous Diwali. Diwali is the most significant festival of India. Often know as ‘festival of lights’, Diwali is celebrated for five days; but in few parts of India the celebrations continue till Tulsi Vivah.
To make sure that you look your best on this auspicious occasion I have come up with a new outfit. The end of diwali marks the beginning of wedding season in India, the ensemble showcased below is perfect for a sangeet, engagement, a festival or any other traditional or cultural event.
Men do not have much options, when it comes to ethnicwear. A kurta-pajama, simple or embroidered sherwani, a nehru jacket and dhoti are the only options we choose from. However, you can always experiment with the resources available, style them in a unique way and stand out from the crowd.
So, without much delay lets see the outfit.
Well the above outfit is what I wore for the Diwali Pahat this year. I did not want to buy a new kurta or a complete dress so, I decided to style my simple kurta with a shawl to get a decent look with a touch of royality to it. I had bought this red, cotton kurta & pajama for a traditional day event held in my college. And the shawl belongs to my dad, I had bought this one when I went on Shimla tour this year.
I styled my traditional look by draping the shawl in different ways. For the accessories, I suggest going simple as always. I wore a brown leather belt Denial Wellington watch, a dark brown wrist band and two rings to accessorize the look. Going down to footwear, you can wear a nice pair of tasseled loafers, kolhapuri chappals or even a leather belt sandal. Amritsari chittar’s or jutti as it is known popularly, was my choice for footwear.
Well that’s it for this blog post. See you all soon with the next post, until then stay swish, stay stylish and keep sharing the good vibes.
Again, Wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year ahead!
