Navratri... check. Durga Puja... check. Karva Chauth... check. You’ve been there and done that. But wait, the festivities don’t end here.

With the big mama of all festivals, Diwali, round the corner, there are occasions galore to dress up and spread some festive sparkle. Add to that the pressures of dolling up for a shaadi in the khandaan. But fret not, as here’s some celeb inspiration.

These celeb-inspired festival looks, culled from Instagram accounts of the have-style-will-flaunt brigade of Bollywood, will guide you through the festivities. From experimenting with the colour palette and choosing offbeat shades to turning heads in contemporary printed lehengas, there’s something for every occasion.

Karisma Kapoor’s champagne gold sari defines elegance. The focus here is on dramatic eye makeup, offset by soft lips and a neat hairdo. You can also go for a messy bun, which accentuates your facial features. Perfect for a cocktail eve!

Attending your bestie’s ring ceremony? Here’s how to shine, a la Sonakshi Sinha. She has let this ensemble, by Anita Dongre, do all the talking by keeping the makeup clean. Accessorise the look with cocktail rings and dangler earrings — nothing too fancy as the lehenga speaks volumes in itself.

Casual, flirty and quirky, this contemporary take on the lehenga by designer Masaba Gupta is your go-to choice for a day event. Be it a pre-Diwali brunch, lazy barbecue or a friend’s haldi ceremony, you have enough reasons to add a pop of pink in your festive wardrobe. Bardot top in place of a traditional choli and a lehenga skirt with pockets — what more can a girl ask for? Bipasha Basu Singh Grover has accessorised it with statement earrings, but you can also opt for a choker to define the neckline.

Parineeti Chopra’s layered ensemble, by designer Arpita Mehta, is not only cute, but also creates an illusion of height. The girl-next-door look needs minimal assistance in terms of makeup and accessories, but a potli tied around the wrist would come in handy. The pink and blue colour scheme is a refreshing break from the golds and reds that traditionally mark the festivities.

Classics never go out of style, and Neha Dhupia shows you just how you can ace it with a black-and-silver ensemble by designer Anamika Khanna. We are a fan of the clean makeup and the loose bun, but statement hoops have lifted the whole look. A perfect fit for a reception dinner.

The big day is here and you want to play the role of banno ki saheli to perfection. Pay homage to Awadhi tehzeeb with this deep green lehenga by designer duo Sukriti and Aakriti, the icing for which is the beautifully-crafted dupatta. Kriti Sanon completes the look with neatly parted hair adorned with a gajra made of jasmine flowers.

In this sari by Anavila, Shruti Haasan experiments with hues of blue and how! The button-up blouse is perfect for the season. The braided bun adds volume to the look and soft makeup makes sure the attention is not diverted from the sari. A dainty, triple layer necklace in silver can help accentuate the look.
