Fashion designer Anita Dongre recommends ways to freshen up traditional Indian wear

12 twists for festive wear this Diwali

7. Saree robe

Sonam Kapoor paved the way for this innovation when she wore a pastel saree with an Elie Saab robe some time back. A self-coloured robe worn over the blouse adds a regal touch to the simplest of sarees.

8. Superhero cape

Who says you can't look like a female superhero in Indian wear. If you've decided to wear a salwar kameez but still want to be badass, throw on a cape-like floor-sweeping jacket and no one will mess with you.

9. Contrast collar

Up the glam quotient of your anarkali by stitching on an oversized collar in a contrasting design. It is a nod to the androgynous trend and also works as an accessory.

10. Wrap with a ribbon

A saree belt shows off your tiny waistline perfectly. An easier option is a ribbon in the same shade as your chiffon saree. Tie it up with a bow and you are ready to roll.

11. Kimono top

What is better than a ballgown lehenga? A ballgown lehenga with a silk kimono-style top for a choli. You will be rocking the Oriental trend with this tweak, and acing your style quotient.

12. Lacy anarkali dress

How does one slay the lace, sheer and head-to-toe white trends ruling the international catwalks on Diwali? With a white floor-length anarkali dress. It is Indo-ethnic and modest enough for any function yet looks classic European; the best of both worlds.

Which idea will you be incorporating into your wardrobe this Diwali?
