Here comes another Diwali, diyas lit everywhere. On one side I can hear people bargaining for crackers and on another side a poster faces me saying, “For this Diwali let us burst away our egos, not crackers.” Even in all this chaos people get together as one, and greet each other a happy year ahead. Now, that’s the spirit of Diwali, for me.
I would rather say,
“Let you all stay healthy and beautiful for this Diwali. Show your love for others, gift them a new dress.”
Ah, dress! I almost forgot that.
Buying a new attire for yourself and for your loved one’s is a part of our celebrations. A beautiful dress not just an add up to your Diwali celebrations, but a completion (in a way!). So, let’s have a look at the major Diwali Trends of 2015.
For us, Diwali is not just a one day celebration, but a 5 day long festivity.
Day 1 - Dhanteras
The first day of the five-day Diwali festival, marks significance for shopping and purchase of precious metals. Lord Kubera, the God of assets and wealth, and Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth is worshipped this day.
Legends say that this is the day when Gods and Demons churned the Ocean of Amrita, and Dhanvantari, an incarnation of God Vishnu, emerged with the jar of elixir.
On this day of Dhanteras, the business premises are cleaned and the entrances are marked with Rangoli.
Even today, the day is considered more or less as a ‘shopping day’. People find it auspicious and a custom to buy things on this particular day. So, what you planning to buy for this Dhanteras? Whatever you are planning, go out dressed gorgeously. Do you know you can spread positive vibe through the colour you choose to wear?
My choice for you for this particular day is a Saree of green and cream color.
Day 2 - Naraka Chaturdashi
The second day of the five-day Diwali festival, is celebrated as a day that comes just before the main day of Diwali celebrations, and people utilizes this day to visit their friends and relatives.
Legends says that Narakasura, the demon was killed by Krishna (an avatar of Lord Vishnu) and Kali on this particular day.
This will one of the busiest day of the season with all the visitings. But, I know your major concern. And, my solution for that concern is this beautiful blue and cream Saree. The blouse is so lovely, isn’t? Look amazing when your relatives visit.
Day 3 - Diwali
The third day of Diwali is the main day of the Diwali festival. The festival of Diwali needs no introduction. In a word, it is the celebration of victory of light over dark. People light-up their home and heart with Diyas. Crackers of different size and hues will mark this day the most special day of the year. The day is filled with pujas, reunions, celebrations, and most importantly, everyone dress up in their best outfits.
For this Diwali, ditch the old school fashion, and get dressed in vibrant hues. And, to take my favorite - it’s a heartthrobing pink and beige Lehenga. Light your way with awesomeness this Diwali.
Day 4 - Balipratipada
The fourth day of Diwali is the also called Akashadipa, which means the lights of the sky, celebrates love and mutual devotion between husband and wife.
That’s why i introduce this gorgeous piece of clothing for all those beautiful ladies out there. Isn’t this fabulous yellow saree perfect for the evening? Celebrate this day to reassure your love to your husband. Let him feel the most luckiest person to own you.
Day 5 - Bhau Bheej
The final day of the Diwali celebrations marks to the celebrations of Raksha Bandhan. This day signifies the love between sister and brother. The brother shower sisters with gifts and goodies.
To all those beautiful sisters out there, dress up like that annoying naughty sister, and enjoy the craziness you once shared with your brother as kids.
