Diwali is around the corner, so we thought we’d do an outfit post on what you could wear for Diwali parties. A week before Diwali is full to the brim: Diwali shopping, cleaning and attending Diwali parties. For those of you who know me in person, know that is on very rare occasion that I wear formal ethnic wear.
Since floor-length maxi gowns are a huge hit right now,
I decided to wear this embellished floor length gown from Cerise UK.
Floor Length Gown for the Festive Season
This floor length dress is super light, easy to wear and only has sequins details on the top half of the dress. I decided to get curls for this look to keep things formal, but slightly sophisticated. If you, like me, love to experiment and keep things interesting, then definitely try wearing a floor length down at one of your Diwali parties.
Since the dress speaks volumes, I decided to wear only 1 accessory: chandelier earrings from Lipsy.
If you’re not a big fan of earrings, you can just wear a cocktail ring and a cuff.
If you like this look, you can get it delivered in a day. Flyrobe is a rental app that delivers outfits in metro cities in up to 3 hours. Since I really liked the concept, I have used Flyrobe recently and my experience has been good.
With minor snags on timings(thank you Delhi traffic), their ensembles have reached quality standards.
Since most festive parties happen in evenings and go on till late in the night, look for long lasting foundations.
Blend it in using a beauty blender or a fluffy foundation brush: I use the latter. Make sure you use an orange or a yellow based concealer followed by compact powder, blush, and bronzer. Swipe a bit of highlighter on your brow bone before you line your brows and use an eyeliner. Finish with a light perfume on your wrist and the nape of the neck.
