There’s no escaping the revelry that comes with the last few months of the year. And between Diwali, card parties and multiple weddings to attend, a wardrobe crisis is a given.

For those who have to juggle work by day and festivities by night and don’t have the time to go shopping, why not just buy your entire ensemble online? Here are our suggestions to begin with.

Formals
Those tired of the sari and salwar kameez routine can turn to more interesting ensembles like this floor-length maxi with an interesting neckline. Keep the accessories simple. One bracelet or a pair of earrings should be enough to stand out. A statement clutch could be a great addition too.

Casuals
Not too fond of dressing up? Keep it simple in a muted kurta, livened up with embroidery or a smattering of sequins and beads. Accessorise with a chunky cuff, a watch or even a stack of bracelets. Complete the look with studded thong sandals that are formal without being over-the-top.

Accessorise
Trinkets can go a long way in jazzing up even the dullest outfits. You could be wearing the most basic outfit, but if your accessories make a statement, you’re good to attend even a party. Try a necklace with a riot of colours, or a stack of bangles that borrow a shade from your top. A brightly bag or clutch can also liven things up.
