Add a Scarf

Influencer Masoom Minawala’s unique Diwali outfit is not just stunning, but it’s also genius. The attention-grabbing ensemble is a surefire way to make a statement without compromising on comfort. You can replace the traditional saree used in the look with a long scarf.

Shirtdress

Leave it to Sonam Kapoor to nail Diwali dressing simply by teaming a relaxed shirtdress with statement jewelry. Alternatively, you can achieve the look by pairing your favorite shirt with a matching or contrast pleated skirt and a statement belt to complete the look.
