In India, festive season dressing is all about vibrant colors, elaborate ethnic silhouettes, and a lot of bling. Many love to deck up in heavy work-laden lehengas, salwar suits, and sarees in bright and flashy colors.
However, there are many folks who prefer minimal fashion or contemporary styles over maximal and ethnic. The festive season can certainly give them a bit of jitters. If you are one of them, we have great news for you. What if tell you that you can ace your festive look without ditching your natural preferences for subtle style pieces?
Here are four fabulous tips for minimalists to achieve the festive look while keeping it elegant:
#1 Jack-et Up Your Ensembles
If you are someone who loves cotton sarees but want to wear them for festivities, adding a jacket can just get you that stunning indie look.
For example, you can add this exquisite hand-embroidery patterned jacket in maroon with a white or golden cotton saree with a nice zari border. However, if you want a more casual look, you can also pair this jacket with a monotone dress and just add a belt to complete the look. Shop this jacket here.
#2 Make your co-ord set game stronger with an embellished stole
If you love co-ord sets, we have the perfect way to make them festive-ready. Be it any co-ord set, just find the right stole with sequins, embroidery on the border, or gota lace to match the combo set and you are all set to dazzle at the festive occasions.

Featuring geometric Phulkari motifs and running stitch detailing in gold, you can complement it with a gold color or sequin stole for your festive get-togethers.
Let’s take another example. Going for a soothing white top with hand embroidery in striking yellow and running stitch detail in grey, you can pair it with matching straight pants and take a heavy pearl lace or an embellished stole, either in white color or the contrasting yellow color.
#3 Go for dhoti pants to create a fusion look
Dhoti pants are just the thing you need to obtain that ideal indo-western look and fit in the festive parties. Whether you pair them with long kurtas or short kurta styles, dhoti pants add just the right glam to your festive look. The best part, they are super comfy too for day-long wear. Need we say more?
#4 Let the right accessories work their magic
Want to don dresses for festivities? Style them with a belt, statement jewelry, and other accessories to get an ethnic yet contemporary look.
Take this lovely Golden Bird Kurta Dress for instance. If you want to experiment, you can go for a sequined belt or even a Kamar bandh. In case, you want to keep it simple just opt for a classic brown belt. Complete the look with statement Kundan or silver earrings and a ring!
You can also spruce up your comfy kaftan dresses into something festive with these trucks. Just add in a long layered neckpiece in silver or gold and take an embellished clutch bag to go with it.
