The festive season is right on the way and it’s the time to fill our wardrobe with some gliteratti. What could be better than decking up in the delightful colours of Diwali brimming out of the festive range of Fashion at Big Bazar. Thus, I visited my nearest fbb outlet at P.N.M. Mall, Patna to add some more dazzle to my ongoing Diwali celebrations. And guess what? I was stumped to see the stupendous festive collection that they have to offer that I couldn’t resist creating 5 different looks for this Diwali. 🙂 This year fbb has come up with some economic yet exquisite festive wear collection which includes lehengas, salwar kameezes, churidar kurtas, anarkalis, dupattas, designer blouses and sarees too to glam up your Diwali. 😀
My Diwali Looks 2017 ⭐
1. Maroon Majestica
- What shade could be better than an Indian red (oxblood red or maroon) to compliment the festive fervour of the most glorious festival of India. I tpicked this umpire-cut flared crepe maroon lehenga with gold block print polkas all over bordered with gold zari lace with tassel details on the waist. I teamed it up with a gold sequined bodice (tank top/blouse) along with a gold tissue dupatta, again with tassel details and gold zari border to compliment the whole look.
2. Pink Punk Princess
Fuschia pink adds to one’s glam factor and especially compliments the wheatish Indian skin tone. Also, this shade of pink has a regal charm about it, that’s why in India we call it ‘rani pink’. I have picked this solid fuchsia lehenga in art silk in crinkle finish which is accentuated with gold brocade border. A handloom art-silk hot pink dupatta with woven gold border perfectly compliments the look. I was so very fond of this sequined gold blouse with such apt length and coverage that I wore it again with my pink punk princess look too.
3. Mignight Marvel
Black is beautiful indeed. Though they consider it as an inauspicious colour for Indian festivals, but for me, no festival is complete without a dash of black. Be it, loads of kohl in my eyes or my long dark midnight black hair, even the acute dark sky of Amawasya at the Diwali night exhales black. And we celebrate that darkness by lighting up diyas. My black crinkled crepe skirt is the commemoration of dark night sky of Diwali. It is beautifully enhanced with gold lotus block prints at the edges and a neat, classy, no-fuss cut. The skirt is quite contemporary and functional and could be worn at a cocktail evening too. I have complimented it with a black mandarin collar blouse with magyar (cap) sleeves with a smart gold zipper in the front which accentuates the entire look. It has gorgeous zari embroidered jaal design all over. I have teamed it up with the very same gold tissue dupatta used in my Maroon Majestica look.
4. Ravishing Razzmatazz
No Indian festival is complete without the vibrancy of red. As bright as the dazzling sun and as mischievous as passion, red adds to the razzmatazz of Diwali. This vermilion red art-silk lehenga is designed in umpire-cut with gold paisley block prints around the hemline with intricate gold woven border all over. I have teamed it up with a beautifully designed brocade blouse in red with rich gold details and green meena work. It is nicely cut, thus having a beautiful fit on me as if it was custom-made. A handloom art-silk dupatta in parrot green with woven gold border perfectly compliments the look.
5. Twinkle in Teal
Though I love wearing lehengas for lavish festivals, the comfort of salwar kameez is unmatched. It’s more convenient and functional as you can move around with no-strings attached. I picked this floor-length art-silk anarkali kurta in my favorite hues of teal and royal blue. This kurta is designed with alternate kalis in both blue and teal with a heavily embellished blue velvet bodice embroidered with intricate gold details. It comes with a blue santoon churidar and a georgette dupatta embellished with gold border and mukaish work.
I would love to adorn complimenting kundan jewellery, loads of glass and metallic bangles with all these looks. I have plenty of them, thanks to my jewelista mommy! 😉 And to add-on that sparkle of festivities, no less than a dash of exquisite makeup would do. I have planned to use my newest possessions in cosmetics like Estee Lauder, Bobby Brown and MAC to do this Diwali.
