Integral to the core of India lies the spirit of celebration. Here at Kahva, we celebrate you everyday, but some occasions call for special assistance. Yes, we are talking about Diwali. Days made bright with lights, sweets, fun and games and more importantly, the coming together of family and friends threaded with the yarn of love, Diwali definitely calls for the true spirit of merriment. And what are Diwali celebrations without the perfect attire? 


Elegance and opulence define the festival of lights. What you pick and choose to be your look of celebration will add to it. Keep it simple or go bold, either way, the right dress will complement the festive spirit, when done right. And for that, you need colours. Colours that are a reflection of who you are, colours that capture the essence of celebration. 


And that’s why we bring to you a collection, defined by the hues of festivities, from the house of Kahva in our favourite block print kurtis 

When it comes to Diwali, it’s not just what you wear, but how you style it. So, here are some of really unique ways to glam up in decadence this festive season:

Minimal is the new royal

Who doesn’t love a touch of royalty to their look every now and then? Especially when it comes to a celebration like Diwali. And the trick to styling yourself the regal way to perfection is to keep it minimal with a hint of colours. When picking your diwali ethnic wear we suggest that you opt for a nice block print kurti with muted colours and style your look with a kota daria dupatta. It would be best if the colours match, because contrast is so last season. Pair it with some nice pearls and you are ready to cruise through any Diwali taash party you are going to. 

Gorgeous all the way 

The best part about cotton block print kurtis - they are not only comfortable but they are effortlessly luxurious to look at. And if you are heading out for the upcoming ethnic week at your office or even an afternoon Diwali party you can never go wrong with a floral block print anarkali suit set. Best paired with pearls or gold ornaments, this is a look that you can style in any way you want. To add a touch of femininity to the ensemble, don’t forget to carry a cute clutch with it. 

Shine like embroideries

Golden embroidered motifs on solid colours - it doesn’t get more Diwali than this. And yes we do have an expansive range of these for you to pick from. Go for materials like muslin for that feather touch on your skin. Perfect for any evening Diwali celebration, this must be a part of your look for the Diwali season. It is absolutely essential to style it right for the look of royalty. Pair it with gold jewellery and definitely adorn your hair with a gajra or two. Golden high heels and a dainty handbag - you have the perfect Diwali look! 

Beauty with Bandhej

There’s a different elegance in going traditional. And when we say traditional, we mean traditional. Bandhej, one of the oldest surviving fabric art styles of India, dating back to the Indus Valley Civilization, is a natural choice for this Diwali. Characterised by vibrant colours, Bandhej anarkali sets will help you stand out in the crowd. And guess what, by opting for this print, you just might become the new trend setter in your circle. 


Heavy florals for the softer touch

Printed florals never fail. And when they have been handcrafted by artisans of Jaipur, it really can’t get better than that. Flowing anarkalis with floral prints are just the perfect picks for any kind of Diwali party that you might be heading out to, or for cozy family gatherings to celebrate the festivities. Pair it with oxidised silver earrings or a heavy neck piece and you will see the difference it makes.

So how to top picks perfect Diwali look, but that’s not all. We have a couple of tips for you to keep in mind that will definitely help you to get Diwali ready in no time. 

  • Plan your looks:

    Diwali is a long celebration, stretching over days. From this party to that gathering, everyone’s calendar is blocked and that too in a good way. But, for you to be absolutely on your feet, you will actually not get any time to plan your outfits on the days of the festivals. So, what to do? Simple. Plan them beforehand and keep them ready. And when you plan it’s not just what you will be wearing, it also means planning your accessories. So, think, make a note and be ready. 
  • Keep your outfits ready:

    Grand celebrations call for grand looks. This is the time of the year when every Indian decks up at heart. To embody perfection and nail each and every one of your Diwali looks, you need to keep your outfits ready. Have them steam ironed and neatly placed in your wardrobe. Stack them up neatly so that you know which one you are wearing when. May it be a diwali traditional dress or a quirky ethnic wear that you are aiming for, make sure it’s all in order before the celebrations begin.
  • Don’t forget your hairdo:

    Apart from what you are going to wear, you need to be absolutely clear on how you are going to wear it, that is, you need to know how you want your hairdo to be. Hit the parlour, get that much needed hairspa and be ready for any hairdo that you want to carry for yourself with every look. From buns to long flowing tresses, plan your hairdo ahead. 
  • Shop for outfit essentials:

    While you are busy shopping for the puja essentials at home, don’t forget your outfit essentials. Do you have the perfect earring to go with your bandhej kurti? Are your shoes complementing your jaipur block print kurti? Do not leave this shopping for the last minute. Make time for it. Order for them beforehand and be absolutely festive-ready. 

We know how important it is for you to look your best for Diwali. And that’s why we have our entire festive collection for you to choose from. Select, shop and slay with every look that you have during this festival of lights.
