The Dhanteras Look!
Hello Girls!! So how are your Diwali preparations going on so far or rather I should ask have you decided your outfits? :p I guess many of you guys haven't done that yet so let me help you with this. Diwali is one of the most awaited festival of the year. It is celebrated in five consecutive days which consists of Dhanteras which is two days before Diwali, Bhai dooj which is two days after Diwali and the main day of Diwali that is the Lakshmi Pujan. So, I will be showing you guys some looks that I found comfortable yet beautiful for the festival of lights. Let's get started!

So, This the look I thought was relevant for the occasion of Dhanteras which is celebrated two days before the main day. I have gone for a Maharashtrian look with a plain marsala colour a-lined kurta and a worked duppatta. You always don't have to have a full designed traditional suit but can buy different pieces and pair them up together. As you can see I have used old school marathi ornaments which consists of: Nosering which is called the 'Nath' (Every marathi girl can relate to the beauty of this nosering), then the three layered necklace which is called as the 'Mohan Maal' (gives the royal look) , then the smaller necklace is called the 'Kolhapuri Saaz' which is a necklace that is worn right on your neck like a choker ( but I have extended it to match the level of the three layered necklace) and the last one is a simple earring which I have worn to complete my look and yes ofcourse ditching my bangles.
I have gone for a heavy makeup with a winged liner and added a little blue to the corners. Made a half moon bindi which is the traditional Marathi teeka. And worn the matte me pink lipstick to balance the whole look. Kept my hair simple because who will want look over dressed!
