Festive clothing is notoriously known to be made of polyester that shines a fake shine and spreads microplastic during dry cleaning and washing. On the other hand, sustainable clothes are mostly a bit too subtle for our big Indian festivals. So, we have curated for you a list of five lush looking biodegradable dresses that score far better than their polyester/net counterparts. Let’s take a look at what we have got for you:
Ritu Kumar Black Short Dress | Buy Now
If you want to give a short twist to Diwali dresses this year, then this one is a great pick. While it’s maybe not well-suited for Diwali itself, it will look stunning for cards and dance parties pre-Diwali. It’s made of 100% viscose and we love the twinkly fabric as well as the cowrie tie-up lace!
Suvasa Gota Pink Saree | Buy Now
A silk kota doria saree is incomparable when it comes to adorning for festive occasions. The golden gota on pink looks amazing in a floral pattern. Wear this on Diwali’s morning or Bhai Dooj and look absolutely fresh.
Fabindia A Line Kurta Set | Buy Now
The more we see this emerald green kurta and skirt, the more we find it perfect for Diwali evening. It has 3 quarter sleeves and is crafted in cotton silk. It comes with a matching sharara and mask so that your outfit is complete without any further scavenging. Add pearl earrings to it and you are all set to celebrate in style.
Nicobar Double Layer Kurta | Buy Now
Every year people wait for Nicobar to launch its festive line around Diwali and here it is now. Our favourite piece from Nicobar’s latest collection is this Double Layer Kurta in pink and lime. The lime is so refreshing for the eyes and the tropical print adds to it so well. The contrasting inner layer gives the kurta a rich look required for Diwali. If you are one of those people who likes to keep it light even on festive occasions, then this one’s for you.
Bunaai Beetroot Gold Suit Set | Buy Now
What’s a festive wardrobe without a tinge of fuchsia colour? Rather dull. That’s why, we have curated Bunaai’s Beetroot Gold Suit Set for you. The suit set is really affordable as you get silk kurta and pants plus an organza dupatta for just Rs. 3,500. The light printed flora is easy on the eyes and perfect for any in-between Diwali occasion.
