The festive season brings with it the occasion to dress up! So when we heard of that office Diwali party, we mentally began to think of outfit ideas that’ll be easy to wear all day long and still look party-esque at night.
Since it’s a work scene we know we need to find the balance between fab and professional; so with all the fashion inspo we’ve got from bloggers around us, we’ve managed to put together 5 easy, fun and offbeat outfit ideas for that much-awaited office party.
5 ways to look fashion-forward at the office party
1. Go retro-chic
Dhotis have come back in a big way and are no longer the garment that was sported only by men. Dhoti pants are becoming all the rage for not only their fashion-forward appeal but also the comfort they offer. So our first look includes teaming a Dhoti or flared dhoti pants with a crop top. Add a full-length cape to make it look more festive. The layers will only give the outfit a more formal look while you can accessorise with long earrings and bangles to complete the look.
2. Bring out the flare
Got a lehenga that’s too over the top for an office party? Bring it out and pair it with a crop top in a contrasting colour. The crop top will help balance out the outfit and add a trendy touch to your otherwise Indian outfit. Team this with heavy earrings and mojris to stay stylish and comfortable throughout the day.

3. Play It Up With The 9 Yards
Ever worn a saree as a lehenga? Well, we suggest you play a little with that old saree and turn it into a lehenga that you can wear to your office party. A simple sari worn a little differently can make all heads turn. Plus, if you think it’s a little too much you can always skip the accessories and go subtle with the makeup to look appropriate. Here’s a tutorial to help you wear your sari as a lehenga.
4. Pick A Trendy One-Piece
A one-piece indo-western dress is an easy option that will seldom fail. It’s simple and easy to carry off while you can add accessories to this look to jazz it up. If you think it’s too simple, an embellished dupatta will add the missing oomph.
5. Let Your Dupatta Do The Talking
The classic combo of a white shirt on blue jeans never fails. And it sure won’t fail you for your office party. But jazz it up with a heavy choker and a bandhani or Banarasi dupatta that you can wear as a jacket. This will give all the right festive feels. Keeping the colour of the dupatta in mind you can also choose to go monotone with all black and let the dupatta add all the colour to your outfit.
Here’s a detailed video on how to wear your dupatta as a jacket.
So go out there and rock your Diwali fashion this festive season.
