The festive season is just around the corner and we know the one thing that must be going on in every girl’s head- “what am I going to wear?” While it may sound easy to some, we know just how taxing it can be to find that one perfect outfit.
With the world going digital, we have also subconsciously inclined towards social media platforms to find what we like the most instead of going to a shop! And here’s the catch- there is a pool of influencers who religiously share their favorite festive looks and trust us, they are fab!
Whether you are in the mood for experimenting with your outfit, or you want to don something that’s trending, or just go for vanilla dresses, it’s all out there on Instagram, tried and tested by the best influencers giving us commoners a better view of what we can buy!
Now this plethora of options might get you confused, which is why we have picked out some of the best festive outfits that you can choose from this season and look amazing!
Skirts/ Light lehengas are trending
Skirts and lehengas are timeless and graceful. The best thing about them is the minimalized effort you need to put in to create your complete look. Instagram is flooded with influencers wearing lehengas in different styles because of how classy they look. The best we have seen so far- a plain skirt with a blouse and dupatta with minimal embroidery to keep it subtle.
Our personal guidance to you would be to choose hues of red because it synchronizes well with the festivities. Additionally, to complete your look, you can add a pair of earrings but don’t invest in a neck piece or hand jewelry- the outfit is enough to add the right amount of grace to your look.
Unconventional sarees for the 21st century woman
We always say this, sarees are the essence of an Indian woman’s beauty. It’s true that initially sarees were considered as an “old” tradition, but influencers have flipped that around and how! We have witnessed some unconventional and fashionable concepts of how a saree can be draped, thanks to the creative awakening of influencers!
A plain saree with a crop top as a blouse, a floral/ printed fashionable dress like saree, or just one that is draped in a very stylish way- these are some of the concepts that we loved the most on Instagram.
The best one that we would recommend is a saree draped in a scarf-like manner and a baggy blouse to enhance the overall look. A watch alongside would fit in perfectly!
Our favorite: The basic suit set
Like we said, there’s a lot of festive outfit ideas that influencers post about – some of them are trending, some are super chic and experimental, and some are the basic choices that can never go wrong!
Suits are that choice; the right fit for every occasion, be it a function or a festival, their elegance will bring out the beauty in every woman.
Influencers love suits too- it’s their go to choice when they want a simple yet charming look.
For the festive season, we recommend you to choose a straight kurta and pants, preferably of a bright color like yellow and without any work or embroidery to maintain the simple look.
To complete your look, look at getting a pair of jutis and heavy earrings to balance the outfit.
Choose the rare: Kaftans
If you are someone who likes experimenting with their outfit, kaftans are the best choice for you. While this is not the idea of a regular festive outfit, it’s been worn by influencers on so many festive occasions recently and it suited perfectly! It’s a new style, super chic and not to forget, very comfortable for the extreme weather conditions in our country!
Our guidance is to get a floral printed kaftan to bring out the uniqueness of the outfit. You can also mix and match contrasting earrings and a pair of heels.
Looking at all these trends and the change that is entering the fashion industry thanks to influencers on Instagram, Indian fashion is seeing new heights in the global fashion world that might have been impossible to witness a couple of years ago!
One thing you always need to remember is that it is not important to always choose an outfit that is out of the box, which is why some of our recommendations were of simple yet classic dresses- also something that influencers vocally recommend.
Festivals are a great celebration in our country. You meet your friends and family, click pictures and make memories. Believe it or not, what you wear plays a very important role in how you feel that day so choose wisely!
