Sarees are a timeless addition to every Indian Girl’s Wardrobe. They are evergreen and can never go out of style. If your style is the girl next door look, then a saree is a great way to channelize your chic style effortlessly. Yes, you heard it right! Draping this 6-inch yard of clothing can instantly elevate your style which makes it the best outfit for the festive season.

This Diwali, invest in a good Organza Saree and make a statement with your blouse— you can go for ruffle sleeves or a halter neck. Next, put on your favourite jhumkas or any statement earrings. There you go, the perfect look for Diwali is ready! 

You can also tie your hair up in a ponytail for the classic girl next door look.

Another saree style that you can pick for your 2020 Diwali Look is a Cotton Saree. Cotton Sarees are your best friend if you are someone who loves to be stylish yet keep it comfortable. Drape your cotton saree with a boat neck blouse, preferably in full sleeves. Complement your look with a statement choker or a maang tikka, and you are good to go!


Lehengas again are a versatile Indian Wear you need to have in your wardrobe. If you are looking for the perfect lehenga-choli, make sure to purchase one in pastel shades. Pastel shades are totally in this season and definitely scream girl next door. 

Style your Lehenga with a Choli having a Noodle Strap, or in a V-Neck to have a more young and preppy look.

If you want to wear your lehenga with a twist then pair it with a Classic White Shirt. Add a statement choker, maang tikka, curl your locks and leave them open. Voila, you have your Diwali look ready!


If you are someone who prioritizes comfort over anything and practically lives in loose baggy clothes, then statement dupattas are your true companion! This is how you can have your comfort sorted while looking extremely stylish and preppy. 

Simply wear a solid kurta with a heavily embellished dupatta. For the bottom, go with straight pants or a palazzo. Well, that was easy, isn’t it? You are ready in practically just 10 seconds without putting in any effort. Complete your look with silver jewelry and you are ready to rock any Diwali party.


Wearing a kurta with a skirt is a trend which is extremely popular this year. From Bollywood Celebrities to Fashion Influencers, this is an absolute favourite of many. What adds to their popularity is how easy, fresh and comfortable this look is. All you have to do is take a long skirt and pair it up with your straight kurta. To complete this effortless yet chic look, play with your accessories immensely-go big with jhumkas, neckpieces or even a maang tikka.

If you want to attain this look through mix and match, make sure you keep these tips in mind.

  • Team a heavily embellished skirt with plain kurta or vice versa. Having both the top and the bottom elements embellished and heavy does not allow the style to emerge out distinctively.
  • Another way you could go about with this look is by either following the monochrome or contrast look. Make sure you complete the look with lots of silver jewelry and have your Diwali Look ready.
  • If your top is heavy, it is advised to go for only statement jewelry and let your outfit do the talking. Keep your makeup also minimal and pretty!


Shararas are again perfect festive wear and also have a classic girl next door touch to them. They were immensely popular last season and they are definitely not canceled this season.  Pair your sharara with a kurti/ blouse of a shorter length to let the flair of the sharara outshine. Since Pastels are going huge this season, you can also pick your sharara in the same colour palette.

In fact, the versatility of shararas allows you to go Indo-Western as well. Wear your Sharara with your White-Shirt or with a T-Shirt or even a Crop Top. Accessorize the look with statement jewelry pieces and you are perfectly ready for Diwali.


So these are five Diwali Outfit Ideas that are perfect for every girl next door. They are festive, minimal, comfortable, and give you a youthful vibe! Instead of bursting a Patakha, make sure you wear these looks to look like one! Click lots of pictures, gulp on the Mithais and have lots of fun this Diwali with your family.
