festive look at work women

Diwali is knocking on your doorsteps, but many of you might have to spend a working one. You are in a festive mood already, and you want to take those festive feels to work too. But ladies, that doesn’t mean that all your festive outfits will go to waste! You can rustle up some chic festive looks for the workplace and we are sure a working festive season won’t feel so depressing when you are dressed to impress!


Intrinsically Indian

This is the time to flaunt those gorgeous Indian ethnic clothes at the office. A bunch of lovely ladies in all their festive finery are enough to add some celebratory vibes even to the most mundane workplaces! Seize the day in a long straight tunic paired with trendy palazzos, or wear an A-line kurta with cigarette pants to spruce up the boring Monday morning meeting. Keep the color palette pastel, monotone or neutral to keep it office-appropriate, and add your own style statement through accessories, bags & shoes that are head-turning without being OTT.

Contemporary Chic

Contemporary spins on traditional fashion are a great way of showing the world (or your colleagues) your personal style sensibilities. Pair your favorite white shirt with palazzos or dhoti pants, add on fun brooch and slip on a pair of embroidered wedges for a look that’ll surely impress the boss! You can wear a smart straight-cut kurta with your favorite semi-formal slim-fit trousers, or even layer an ethnic look with a structured blazer to stand out in the office crowd. Adding trendy ethnic accessories to your Friday casuals is also a great way to bring in the festive vibes at work.

For The Love Of Layering

Which woman doesn’t get excited at the prospect of layering up their outfits in interesting ways? So, this Diwali, grab eyeballs at work in layered contemporary or traditional kurta outfits, and show your colleagues the quintessentially Indian side of that suits-and-heels #BossLady that you otherwise are. Pair long shrugs with asymmetric kurtis & palazzos, or look Diwali-ready in a flared kurta with a embroidered waistcoat or cropped jacket. These layered looks will be perfect for the festive vibe as well as the slight nip in the air!


Blazers are work-wear essentials that spell effortless dressy chic. This festive season, switch your regular formal dress for an elegant silk shift dress and a tailored textured blazer, for a perfect style statement at work. A well-cut, dressy blazer can jazz up even a silk blouse & formal trousers look and give you festive feels even on the longest work days. Just make sure your jackets fit you well and keep the accessories minimal, with solitaire earrings or a smart leather handbag to add that touch of class to your festive work look.

So what if you have to work through your Diwali week? Dressing up in fun festive styles will definitely take the pressure out of work and put you & people around you in a celebratory mood!
