Diwali is my favorite time of year. I love the festivities, yummy home-cooked food, and, of course, the fireworks! With all the celebrations, it’s easy to worry about how to manage it all and have fun.
This year, I teamed up with Brown Girl Magazine and India Boulevard to design a Diwali look that I could effortlessly wear from day to evening. I selected a beautiful powder blue anarkali with a contrast deep purple floral dupatta. I then added this season’s hottest accessory—a belt to style the look in two ways.
For the day look, I styled the anarkali with a beaded belt to give it a more regal look. I added a maang tikka and silver earrings to compliment the elegant beaded dupatta.
For the evening look, I let my hair down and wore the dupatta over my shoulder so I could dance and enjoy the fireworks!
