Have you shopped already for what to wear in the festive season? If not, then read on before spending money on an outfit. Afterall, you’d want to choose the one that makes you glitter and be the star of any gathering. Mentioned below are some of the best ways you can opt to dress for festivals and make a great impression.


Sarees in recent times have been given a twist by designers. Nowadays, you can get pre-stitched and ruffled sarees that are very easy to wear and carry for long hours. Sarees usually look chic when worn with heavy earrings. You pair a plain saree too with a well-embroidered blouse. Try a black saree for the killer look (although not advisable for festivals). Floral prints are also a good option to wear. Sarees look great on tall, slender women. 

Long Dresses

There are many reasons why maxi dresses are a favourite among women of all sizes, as they are both beautiful and elegant to wear. An ideal dress for festivals like Diwali would be a dress with a traditional print. These dresses are very versatile and come in both simple and heavy styles. If worn correctly, they look very graceful and are very comfortable as well. 


It is so easy to choose from so many varieties of lehengas. You can go for flared lehengas or if you prefer a simpler look, you can choose a crop top with a skirt or A-line lehengas. The crop top and skirt are also very popular and are easy to accessorise with oxidised earrings, funky necklaces, and Mojris. They can make you look absolutely stunning when worn.

Top with Dhoti or Palazzo Pants 

The style of this dress would suit those who are looking for a bold and edgy look. They can be paired with a jacket and long earrings. This look is one of the most stylish and would be appropriate for a semi-formal event. The simple crop top paired with the palazzo pants paired with a beautifully embroidered jacket is a stunning combination.


Even though not being widely preferred, they are super comfortable and stylish-looking. Who knew you could make so many combinations by combining a simple white T-shirt with a saree or skirt. You can also wear a jacket-kurta with jeans for a more unique appearance. Short Anarkali kurtas with skirts below the knee are also a great look.
