Jodhpurs

Yes the jodhpurs have been here for a while, and we see no reason to mess with a good thing. Give it a Sabyasachi or Rohit Abhishek kind of twist and you will be set.

Scarves and more

The nip is entering the air so bring out the scarves and the shawls for the right accents. Both made the rounds at the country’s biggest fashion events courtesy Amalraj Sengupta, Vaishali S, Vikram Phadnis and scores of others.

Classics

What the sari is to the Indian woman the dhoti is to the Indian man. Done right it can’t be beaten. Add the exquisite detailing of Agnimitra Paul or Gaurang Shah and you need do no further.

Royal touch

It’s traditional, it’s royal and it’s just the head turner — no pun intended — you need this Diwali. Shaymal & Bhumika are among the designers pushing the turban.

Sheers & Sherwanis

There is a buzz about sheer fabrics and it looks like it is here to stay at least for another season. Vaishali S and Shantanu Goenka show us just how to get it right.

Stripes

Stripes translate beautifully to kurtas, as Amalraj Sengupta showed off with his line called Tailor at the Lakmé Fashion Week. The collection incidentally seeks inspiration from the Mauri tribes of New Zealand, and a touch of the exotic never hurts.

The casual

Keeping up the fashion pace for all five days of Diwali can be stressful. Stock up on chic casuals like these Kunal Rawals and Vaishalis to strike a balance.

Bling

It’s the season to sparkle. And bling, in tasteful doses, is just what you need to add that finishing touch to your Diwali wardrobe. We especially love the black and golds of Shyamal & Bhumika and Tarun Tahiliani.
