Tara Sutaria Gives You All the Outfit Inspiration You Need For the Upcoming Festive Season

Dreamy drapes, whimsical prints, and exquisite embroideries—up your style quotient this festive season with a cue from the Bollywood diva. 

The festive season is upon us—infused with an abundance of love, light and vibrance. As the world resumes normalcy in the wake of the pandemic, it seems as though the festive spirit is well and alive, once again! Celebrations galore, the local markets are stocked with the season's latest offerings amidst an air of excitement and chitter-chatter. And, as intimate affairs are expanding in number, sartorial choices have witnessed a shift as well—with people going back to heavy, embroidered drapes. 

Is it time we bid adieu to understated, lightweight ensembles? Perhaps. With the festivities approaching, why not draw fashion inspo from decked-up Bollywood celebrities who don't shy away from going full-glam. To guide your garment choices this season, we sifted through Tara Sutaria's Instagram handle, picking out the best occasionwear outfits from her ethnic wardrobe—take a look. 




To add a dash of fun to your ensemble, opt for an unconventional, vibrant hue—much like this blue—with intricate embroidery and subtle mirror work. 




Drape your nine yards of elegance the stylish way, cinching it at the waist with a statement belt. 




An embroidered, printed kurta with a hint of sequins is the perfect outfit for an intimate festive occasion. 




Go bold, or go home. A heavily embroidered lehenga with a ruffled sleeve blouse, dainty jewellery, and a sleek, tight bun? We're *totally* into this look. 




A go-to for the modern woman, pick a lehenga set with an off-shoulder blouse to stray away from all things traditional. 




Top of the trend list? Soothing pastel hues. Pick from calming colours such as mint green, blush pink, popping orange, or even a flattering mauve. 




While we make a strong case for heavily embellished attires, the minimalist movement is still at the forefront. Pick a lightweight organza lehenga with a statement border and a sexy blouse.  




Pastel hues are in, agreed. But when did we say you can't play with bright, bold colours? Throw on a vibrant purple kurta like Tara Sutaria and match it with a contrasting dupatta.




 A monotone outfit with busy beaded embellishment is a win-win for all the ladies out there. 




Why go with just a few lehenga tassels when you can go with many? 




Gold and ivory are a match made in heaven—throw on a statement choker set and earrings, and you're good to go. 




Tara Sutaria's pastel pink Anita Dongre lehenga with sparkling silver accents can take you from day to night in an instant. 




Bollywood's exquisite love affair with the sequin sari will go on for decades to come—with Tara's silver number topping our list of favourites. 




If a heavy lehenga or sari isn't occasion-appropriate, opt for a kurta paired with straight pants. Throw on some tribal jewellery to turn things up a notch. 




Make heads turn in a thigh-high slit lehenga with a balloon-sleeved blouse.




An all-time favourite look from Tara's debut movie Student of the Year 2. How fetching is this vibrant colour combination? (P.S. We love Ananya's too). 




A plain, off-white organza lehenga paired with a glittery glam blouse is the perfect balance between comfort and chic.
