Festive Fashion 2020: Latest Trends for Men & Women

The festive season is almost here and the vibe of 2020 has finally started to pick up. Covid-19 has already stolen a lot of our hangout memories, so now it’s time to get back our moment with up-to-date Diwali outfits! Fashion, as we know it, keeps evolving every now and then. So, we bring to you the top trends for ethnic wear 2020.

Top 3 women’s ethnic wear trends

Saree and Crop Top

The ever-favourite saree never goes out of style! However, as the latest trend, you should try out a pre-stitched frill saree, which can be worn over a pair of leggings too! Pair it up with a black sleeveless crop top. Don’t forget to wear your gleaming jhumkas and that beautiful smile for the final look! It’s a simple, hassle-free ensemble that will get you all the compliments.

Heavy-Work Phulkari Dupatta

The easiest yet most talked-about festive look is wearing a plain monochromatic kurta set and topping it up with a bright and heavily worked dupatta. Phulkari dupattas are the best choice as they are extremely festive with beautiful prints and mirror work options, plus look great with a simple pair of Kurti and leggings. This look is easy to carry and offers elegance. Depending on your mood, you can pair it with heavy jhumkas, but we would suggest you to go for the plain ones as the dupatta is going to steal all the glances anyway!

Sharara Dress

Be it any festive occasion, one can never go wrong with a Sharara suit. The frills of the sharara add up that extra charm in the dress. Try to avoid a sharara suit which has bell-sleeves in the kurta as it can become too loud. A thin chiffon dupatta will work best for the sharara. Pair it up with chand-bali earrings, and in case you want to go all out, add a matching maang tika as well to complete the look.

Top 3 men’s ethnic wear trends

Nehru Coats

Have you been wearing the same old sherwanis every Diwali? Well, now you can jazz things up with a classy Nehru coat over your kurta/sherwani. Nehru coats are a politician’s favourite, but if worn right, they make up for an extremely dignified look while also giving off a festive vibe. If your sherwani is plain and monochromatic, a floral printed coat with golden or silver patterns will look extremely glamorous and festive. If your kurta is already printed, you can go for solid-coloured coats, but make sure to choose the ones that give out a glossy effect. It’s the festive season after all!

Pastel for the Win

Believe it or not, pastels are the latest trends for festive fashion 2020 for men as well! Leave the old black and white and go for elegant pastels this festive season. Pastels in the shades of green, blue, and purple look elegant and are some definite attention grabbers. You can pair up your pastel kurta set with a dupatta, which will complete your enviable ensemble. You can also go for pastel kurtas with a pocket and style it up with a patterned pocket square of a contrasting color.


The all-time favorite, bandhgala, also known as prince cut, looks royal and blends in well with the festive season. Try to avoid plain or monochromatic bandhgalas. Since it is the festive season, venture more into self-design prints or patterns. It can be paired with dhoti-pants or plain pajamas. Wear a traditional jutti to complete the festive look.
