An outfit by Preeti Kapoor This Diwali, keep it stylish
It's about striking the right balance between the looks of a runaway bride and a plain Jane. Not that the look is difficult to achieve but you have to break certain made-up fashion rules. Beginning with the bling, it's not the definition of festive wear. Swarovski, zari work, gotta patti work are all fine but not a suffocating overdose of it. At the same time, keep simple prints, khadis, handlooms for post Diwali time. It's time to indulge, not over-indulge though. You need examples to understand it better? Here is the Diwali guide as to what will suit the occasion….Over to fashion designers who are more than happy to spell out the festive trends.

Wow weddings!
If there are three-hundred weddings happening in the city, how do you stand out amidst the already stretched out? With the set-up - a 100-year-old glitzy ranchWedding venues at their best replete with wooden antique décor or large chandeliers or fairytale ambient lighting or the flowers? Or button rose bouquets, lilies of the valley, all tied up with Queen Annie’s lace and purple Saffron Crocus? Or the food? ‘Cider-braised pheasant and pan-roasted quail, Top Chef: Texas-style’… that’s how one of the list goes!

The ‘in’ side
Rug-ged terrain
With more people choosing hardwood or tiles for their homes, wide expanses of bare floors can make an interior feel cold and unwelcoming. This is where a strategic placement of rugs can help. They help anchor a room and define it as well.
