Diwali is here which means endless Diwali card nights and parties with friends and friends of friends. That is a lot of social meetings, which is why, getting your outfit on point almost becomes mandatory.
Diwali party outfits should be really elegant and minimal therefore opt for Indo-Western pieces or pastel Indian outfits. Your makeup should be minimal as well because card parties usually happen at home. To brighten up the look, you can add a pop of color with your lipstick, accessories or a dupatta.
Here are a few celebs that inspired us for this year’s Diwali party outfits:
- Cape and maxi skirt
- Indo-Western crop top and pants
- Bohemian Sari
- One shoulder cape dress
- Bright suits
- Indo-Western maxi dress
Cape and maxi skirt
Pairing an embroidered cape with a lehenga or a maxi skirt makes for an effortless Diwali card party outfit. You can add statement earrings to complete the look. Don’t forget to wear your hair loose with soft curls.

Indo-Western crop top and pants
If there is anything that can top a crop top and pant co-ord set, it is an Indo-Western embroidered crop top with pleated pants/ skirt.
This look strikes the perfect balance between tradition and modernity.
Who: Nidhhi Agerwal
Really offbeat just like the beautiful celeb donning it! A multi-colored sari draped in a Boho way makes for a great Diwali outfit for bigger parties with more people at a bigger venue, perhaps.

One shoulder cape dress
Another high fashion Indo-Western ensemble you can pull off at a grand Diwali party is a one shoulder cape dress. These are essentially maxis but with more intricate designs and more refined silhouettes. Tassel earrings go perfectly with this outfit.

If you want to keep it low key for a simple Diwali card party at home, opt for a plain A-line or straight fit floor length suit just like Alia Bhatt. Choosing bright colors like yellow just makes the whole look way cuter, younger and prettier! Let your hair loose, go for a no-makeup makeup look and you’re ready.
Who: Alia Bhatt
Indo-Western maxi dress
If you’re not into ethnic wear, you can instead opt for a normal maxi and style it in a bohemian way. For this, take two ends of your maxi and tie a not at the bottom to give it a dhoti draping illusion. Or else, opt for a three-fourth asymmetrical maxi number like Alia.
For this look, you can go a little dramatic with your makeup too. Smokey eyes and a nude lip will work great with something like this.
If not, you can always opt for a dewier look like Alia Bhatt in this picture.
Don’t forget to accessorize with silver junk jewelry while creating your bohemian Diwali look.
