How To Dress For Your Office Diwali Party

We Indians are absolutely crazy about our festivities, especially about Diwali – so much so that we will have multiple Diwali celebrations – at home, at friend’s place, in schools, in colleges… even at work. Taking the modern working women’s traits in consideration, here are 7 options you can opt for to wear at your workplace’s Diwali bash.

Cotton Saree With Zari

Many women are kind of sentimental towards the nine-yard outfit. Opt for a crisp cotton saree if you want to go completely traditional. Also, if a little amount of shimmer/bling is on your mind, opt for a very lively coloured cotton saree embroidered and/or bordered with zari.

Crop-Top And Lehenga Skirt

If you think lehenga is not a work-place scenario, think again! Opt for sober colours, big prints and a nice pair of pumps. Your crop top’s sleeves should not be shorter than your elbows.

Long Kurta And Sharara

Sharara and kurta are so in these days. Introduced by Islamic style of bridal fashion, shararas have won many hearts. If you need a hassle-free volume to your outfit, they are the best option. A simple sharara paired with a silk kurta will complement each other perfectly.

Heavy Dupatta

This can be called as a last-minute styling option for your office’s Diwali bash. If you have a simple or plain pair of salwar/chudidar and kurta, opt for a heavy dupatta such as a phulkari dupatta or a silk dupatta.
