Lehenga sari is an interesting mix of lehenga choli and a saree and is a formal wear. This style has a choli or a blouse worn in a lehenga choli and the sari looks similar to a lehenga when draped, with embroidery and embellishments. Looks super cool and is much easier to wear than a typical saree.diwali-outfit-02

For a fully comfortable and formal look, take your pick from the evergreen Anarkali dress. A full-length frock style kurta till just about a few inches above the ankle, it is paired with leggings or churidars. The range varies depending upon your budget and requirement. You can opt for a very heavily embroidered one or light embellished ones in cotton or net. Looks gorgeous but helps you maintain your comfy zone to run errands while you run around managing your Diwali party!diwali-outfit-04
