The entire last week was spent cleaning up everything before Diwali. I got so busy with the cleaning spree that one of my most favorite part of Diwali Celebrations, ‘what to wear this Diwali’ just skipped from my mind.

While growing up, I always enjoyed the sight of women dressed in traditional clothes gathering at the temple with their ‘diyas’ and ‘puja ki thalis’ and thereby lighting up the whole atmosphere with their aura. Though, I am mostly a jeans and a tee person, I love traditional Indian clothes. They’re beautiful and look classy.

Diwali gives us a chance to dress in traditional silhouettes and make heads turn wherever we step into. I have a simple long kesari kurti in chiffon fabric with karshmiri embroidery, which I plan to wear for this Diwali with matching leggings. If you are still wondering what to wear for this Diwali, here are six super stylish Diwali outfit ideas that can make you look fashionable and yet beautiful for the festival:

  1. Straight Suit:
