With the monsoon season kicked in and everything going wet-wet everywhere, it is that time of the year again when we don’t scurry for cover, rather we run out to party at festivals. Festivals at colleges, campuses, parties, shows, events and even traditional ones held at home. But for this and being the fashionista divas inborn, we want to be the best dressed always, without having to go OTT on the same.

Festival Fashion Styles
So here are five festival style and festival fashion tips that we would like to share with you. Read about them all and plan your look accordingly.
Mirror Work Skirts
There are a range of skirts out there to choose from, namely skorts, pleated, tube and maxis, but we want some pizzazz and festival style and festival fashion statements made, so ditch the boring ones. What you should opt for the parties around to wear are sparkling embroidered lehenga skirts or long flowing mirror worked Rajasthani skirts. Balance the look around. For example, if the skirt is highly or heavily embellished and worked upon, wear a sensual cropped number on top. Now the skirt needn’t be a wide flared one. You can wear a mermaid inspiration too, to flaunt your hour glass figure and a slender drop. Complete the look with a dash of red hot lipstick and bold smokey eyes, a chunky neckpiece if the top is simple, and khussas shoes for the feet. Hairdo wise, keep it elegant and topped with no accessories!
See Through Sexy
If you have the body, why not flaunt it with sheath, lace and net sensuality. From sarees to salwars, anarkalis to Indian suits and more, our B-Town girls have shown us how to adorably wear sheath and lace and make fashion statements go oomph. Some of the best traditional best festival outfits too have been curated from sheer and lace fabrics, which is why we look at festival outfit ideas that show a little skin sans the OTT factor coming through. Ensure that the colors you choose are up and one with your skin’s undertones. A little shimmer on the blouse and the pallu of the sarees or work in crystals and sequins can make a stunning mark. Makeup wise, the look would be sultry for the eyes healthy blush for the cheeks. Minimal statement accessories and loose tong blessed curls or flowing hair would create magic.
Chunk It Up
We cannot lay less importance on the power of accessories, when we say CHUNK IT UP! From maangtikkas to passas, nathus to statement earrings and neckpieces too, we want you to dazzle and shine without looking over the top. Once again, we would ask you to check the tone and the karigari work done on your emulated celebrity outfits and to make them into cute festival outfits we would ask you to go balanced and minimal in using metal accessories. For the formal gathering it would be best to stick with one or two statement pieces, whilst for a college festival, beads and oxidized charms on your neck and hands would make a drool worthy look.
Play With Prints
Don’t be shy of prints, especially the floral ones which comes as a breather amongst the many other styles to play with. Dress up in cute floral tops or cholis, balancing the look with solid hued lehengas and ghagras, anarkali skirts or maybe sarees and petticoats too. Keep the tones of the floral touches mostly warm for the night and cool for the day, which allows the natural light of the sun to enhance the look overall. Hairdo wise, keep the look elegant and sleek, with natural makeup that allows the flaunting of pretty prints to be done.
Experiment With Saree Drapes
Check with out previous posts and you would see how we have spoken many a times about draping your sarees in fashionable ways. Some of them with palazzos, some with netted tank tops, some with lehenga skirts and the works. So don’t be boring, get a little more of the onlookers gaze the right way and drape your sarees in very fashionable avatars too. In addition to that, play with a range of cholis. Box cholis to puffed sleeves, netted spider ones to cross backed cholis and more, they can help enhance the look of the newly draped saree as well.
