Diwali is around the corner and we believe dressing the part is just as important as all the other rituals. So if you’re looking for Diwali outfit inspiration, we have something for you. Give the usual salwar kameez a skip and try out the hottest trend of the season – Dhoti pants.
Dhoti pants have been named after ‘Dhoti’, a traditional garment worn by men in India. But with change in style and fashion preferences, this garment has been adopted by women in an ethnic fusion form. A popular choice amongst many celebrities, designers and stylists, Dhoti pants make for a great change from the usual salwars and churidars. And if you are confused about styling it the right way, take inspiration from Bollywood’s very own fashionista, Sonam Kapoor.
Our suggestion for making Dhoti pants a successful Diwali outfit will be to pair the pants with a well-tailored top that balances out the volume at the bottom. These pants look their best in brighter colours so go ahead and experiment; however ensure that the top is of a neutral/earthy shade. Do remember to add some bling with big earrings and other accessories. We’d recommend minimal makeup but feel free to adjust it according to the occasion and your preference.
Not just tailored-tops Dhoti pants look great with tunics, crop tops and maxi tops.
