It's the time of the year when you need to clear your houses of the year-long back-log of mess. The task of filling your refrigerator with delicacies and displaying your favorite artefacts that have been locked up in your store all these months is adding to the frenzy! The pre-Diwali time is typically tedious, but there's a ton to rejoice about this festival once you're finished with the chaotic job. Diwali gives you ample opportunities to show your fashion sense, particularly if you're one of those who loves to play dress-up and socialize in the most attractive wardrobe.
- Day 1- Dhanteras: The Dhanvantri Triodas are often referred to as the first official day of the long Diwali festival. Dhan Teras, considered highly auspicious, is the day to purchase, shop, and make merry! This holy day or shubh muhurat is an excellent time to buy precious metals such as gold and silver, dedicated to the Lord Dhanvantari-the Goddess of Wealth. Wear attire which brings an abundance of wealth into your life, applying the Law of Attraction. It is precisely the day when brocade will make you glorious, and shimmering zari weaves over hand-woven sarees of silk.
- Day 2- Choti Diwali/ Kali Chaudas: Social media may be full of funny graphics surrounding Kali Chaudas day, but Diwali 's second day has a lot of significance in many parts of India. People devotedly worship Goddess Kali- the destroyer of evil, while performing rituals like Naivedyams and havans. This day, however, is just the time for many people to relax and make memories with their families and friends, while preparing for the Diwali festivities. People prefer to participate in leisurely meet-ups, with little to no work on the cultural front. In lighter fabrics such as cotton and georgette, a printed palazzo suit will keep you modishly relaxed for the day. With Indo-Western silhouettes, you can also explore your styling abilities for the occasion of Choti Diwali. With vibrant fashion jewelry and an easy hair-do, you can try out fluid ethnic gowns and dressy Kurtis.
- Day 3- Laxmi Pujan/ Deepawali: The brightest day of the year — this is officially an occasion to shine. This is a busy day to the brim. There are just a lot of things to do. Still, that's no reason for letting go of this beautiful opportunity to flaunt your look. It’s recommended that you keep your outfit ready for this day in advance, as this will help you stay sorted on Diwali. Time to stop holding yourself back and dress up in the classiest Indian wear to the hilt! To stand out against your well-lit surroundings, take the glint of mirrorwork lehenga cholis, sequined sarees and metallic colored silhouettes. If you run out of time and resources, a pre-stitched saree is the appropriate alternative, while a twirl-friendly lehenga choli is great if you want to be trendy on social media! With the classics, like a pearl choker or a kundan set, you can go.
- Day 4- Bestu Varas/ Next day of Diwali/ Vikram Samvat New Year: Well, this day has mixed connotations all over India. Though this is officially the New Year in some places (as per the Hindu Calendar), this is just a day to enjoy the festive bonhomie in other places. Most take off to fly to enjoy the rest of the Diwali holiday. Some will cook to celebrate Annakut and Govardhan Pooja extensively, as this is a day to feast as well. You should schedule your wardrobe based on what you plan to do on this auspicious day marking the daylight of goodness. The New Year is the chance to put your demure self out or just-be yourself! You can remove all the festive glimmer overdose and tone your wardrobe down to more casual options. For continued socializing moments, lighter palettes combined with breathable fabrics get a thumbs-up. There are typically few to no cultural traditions for the New Year celebration, and that's where you can discover the trendiest forms of fusion. Some smart-dressing choices for the day include contemporary wear, such as indo-western gowns, trendy dhoti pants, and jacket-suits.
- Day 5- Bhai Dooj: The second-in-significance day for siblings after Raksha Bandhan is Bhai Dooj. On both days, the rituals are very similar, with a minor difference in which the sister adds a tilak to the forehead of her brother instead of tying a rakhi. It's a day steeped in warm-hearted love and tradition, so it would look perfect for sarees and printed salwar suits. You should keep your overall look light and peppy. Nevertheless, do not hesitate to have a generous dose of tradition! When embroidery and ostentation are free, select lighter fabrics, or brocades and prints. With printed sarees and lehenga suits that are made in fashionable and recent designs, channel a youthful look. No bar for colors-you can pick your favorites!
Well that’s all. These tips keep you quite sorted for the festival of vibrancy and scintillation.
