Indian Suit Trends for Diwali 2020:
1. The Flared Bottom Staple-Alert
The wardrobe is all about roomy flared and comfy bottoms this year. If you are still contemplating having a palazzo suit or a sharara suit in your closet, then you have missed out on a trendy staple! It’s high time to get one of these flared bottom ensembles for the Diwali evening or the Dhanteras puja.
2. The Layer Edit
Layers are a quick fix to amping up your Diwali look. Although the ambiance may be purely cultural and the expected dress code is traditional, you can trade-off your classic Punjabi salwar set and flaunt your youthfulness with a designer jacket suit. Look out for statement jackets with brocades and colorful embroideries- layer add-ons which you can re-style later over your fusion outfits!
Dhoti suits are also a growing trend this season- a boon for the ones wanting to look curvy. Pick them in crispy fabrics like cotton silk, and style them with chunky accessories!
3. Fabrics to Live By
For Diwali, it’s best to stick to natural or ‘real’ fabrics like cotton, pure silks, tussar silks, and pure georgette and chiffon. These natural fabrics will keep you looking gorgeous, comfy, and sweat-free for longer socializing hours as well as quiet moments at home and virtual parties. So, cotton, pure linen, Khadi weaves are a good idea for the Diwali evening. Chanderi suits with ornate Banarasi dupattas are also a chic pick for the ones who prefer crisp-looking fabrics.
4. Stay Safe
Be the star of the family- with the most elaborate and splendid garments. For a strictly stay-at-home Diwali celebration, we suggest you choose outfits that have the elegance of minimalism and ornamentation limited to a few embellishments. Printed suits are a smart switch-over from the regular heavy silk suits this year. But you can still go with an elaborate silhouette like a floor-length suit with the timeless Lucknowi detail- perfect for a day of complete merriment at home!

You can easily buy them in varied colors and styles over the internet!
6. Anarkali Suits Forever
The gorgeous Anarkali suits and kameez have a feminine charm and grace that’s simply unmatched. Although this trend has been doing rounds in various avatars for quite a few years now, it still is an unbeatable style. So, while you plan your Diwali week wardrobe, do not forget to include at least one of these elegant, lovely silhouette that will stand the test of time for seasons to come.
