Get Festival Ready With Traditional Outfits From Nihal Fashions

Festivals are an integral part of Indian culture. Usually, people wear traditional Indian outfits for festivals. Indian festivals are no longer just about food and celebrations, they are also about fashion. These days special outfits are designed for specific festivals. Apart from the traditional Indian clothes like kurta pajamas, sarees, sherwani, etc. people now also prefer Indo-western attires. Women have several options in Indian wear as compared to men. For almost all festivals, designers try and curate something new. Lately, traditional gowns and floor-length dresses are very much in vogue. Men generally opt for casual kurtas these days. Even in men’s kurtas, many variations have cropped up. Patterns in Indian wear vary these days depending on the individual’s choice and their body shape. Nowadays, many unique colours are also used for traditional dresses. Mundane colours like green, red and blue are overdone and pastels have now come in the forefront. Initially, people did not experiment with sleeve and neck patterns but with several new Indo-western styles, attires now come in varied patterns. Apart from considering the cultural significance of the festival, people also care about the season and fabric. Festivals these days are more about family gatherings and therefore, people opt for comfortable clothing. Heavily embellished sarees and outfits with lots of shimmer are quite outdated. In order to dress up for festivals, accessories also play an important role. Here are some outfit styles which can be worn during festivals and family gatherings.

  • Ethnic Midi Dresses

Midi dresses are slightly shorter than floor length dresses. A midi dress is usually below the knee and above the ankle. If you are looking out for something comfortable then this is the best outfit option. Midi dresses are apt for casual outings too. These days you can get ethnic designs in midi dresses too. These dresses are Indo-western in their look and can be worn at work too. Investing in a midi dress is worth by all means. Moreover, in order to enhance the look, you can add some accessories too. Make sure you complete the look with appropriate footwear.

  • Printed Sarees

Embellishments are quite overrated and for festivals, you can also opt for printed sarees. Printed sarees not only look classy but they are easy to style too. Pair up a printed saree with a unique blouse pattern and you’re good to go. See to it that you choose the fabric of the saree carefully. Colours also play an important role when it comes to dressing up for festivals. Choose colours like peach, lime green, pink, magenta, etc.

  • Kurtas with Denim

Traditionally, a kurta is worn with a churidar or a pajama. In order to give your kurta an easygoing look, you can pair it up with denim too.

You can pair up this look with mojris, Kolhapuri chappals, sandals, etc.

  • Kurta with Dhoti Pants or Pathani Salwar

For festivals like Diwali, Durga Puja, Ganesh Chaturthi, Eid, etc. you can opt for a traditional and a comfy look. Try and opt for a simple kurta and pair it up with dhoti pants or a pathani salwar. This also makes for a complete ethnic look. In order to go for this style, you can choose to go for traditional colours too like maroon, beige, gold, deep blue, etc.
