Diwali Outfit Inspiration You've All Been Waiting For...

By Somdutta Mazumder

Updated - Oct. 22, 2021 6 min read

After ten consecutive flips of the monthly calendar, we are at last inches away from easing into the festival of Diwali. What lies ahead is a joyous stretch of time characterized by all things glitter and glam. The celebratory fervour rapidly vaporizing in the surrounding air comes bearing sweet reminders of last season's resolutions of donning the perfect Instagram worthy outfit, next time. The realization that the "next time" has now morphed into the current time further catalyzes frantic trips to the mall and resultant overwhelming panic.

 

Since making infinite turns to buy what you exactly need would be a risky affair this year. However, that doesn't mean you can't step out once or twice before the festival of light brighten our lives. Let me save you some time before you still can't decide what to wear... a list of 12 immaculate Diwali outfit ideas. 

 

1. V-Neck Mustard Kurti Dress from Global Desi

Effortlessly chic with the correct blend of ethnic and western, the Kurti Dress has been a blessing for all those of us who want to retain our roots but refuse to deviate from comfort.
