Diwali isaround the corner, and it’s the time of the year to embrace your culture and traditions. While adults prepare for their share of celebration, kids desperately wait for this time of the month for the joy of rich vibrant hues thefestival imbues.
Everyone from adults to tiny tots loves slipping into ethnic wear. As much as women love the shimmer and gota of their sarees, little girls love decking up insalma sitaras, sequined lehengas and anarkalis. To complete the look, a cute hairdo and matching jewellery and accessories would go a long way, amplifying the cute factor immensely. The idea is to pushthe limits of imagination of decking them up in the choicest ethnic wear to make them look the cutest.
As parents, don’t we just love dressing up our little bundles of joy? And, just as much we love to deck them up, they love to be decked up!
With great designer kids’ ethnic wear now available from the best of labels makes the task so much more enjoyable. Besides, the blend of comfort and style these labels afford the kids is absolutely worth every penny. It is noteworthy here that while kids appreciate glitter and a vibrant colour palette, poorquality of clothes and synthetic fabrics can turn it into an unsavoury experience, causing rashes and discomfort.
It is important to pick pieces that are not made of nylon or such synthetics as they are highly inflammable. Go for fabrics such as cotton, jute or spandex that wouldn’t catch fire and would allow your child’s skin to breathe, allowing her ease every step of the way.
As girls love glowingcolours fused with zaris, gotas and other shiny objects, look for options that are bright. Length of the kurta or dupatta should be chosen according to your kids’ height so that it doesn’t look baggy or becomes tough to carry. At the same time, ensure the dress doesn’t compromisewith the mobility of the child or elseyou shall have the crankiest kid to deal with. Inappropriate designs and skirt lengths longer than what comfort levels allow, coupled with poor tailoring, can turn the experience into a nightmare, for kids and their parents alike.
Don’t forget the accessories, for they complete the ensemble- especially on special occasions like Diwali and weddings. Choose a cute pair of footwear for the little one; it can be glimmering sandals or funky jutti’s too! Finish it up with dainty earrings, bangles and clips! You can also add a fun sling bag or potli bag for the most adorable finishing touch to your little girls outfit. Potli bags with gota patti work are a rage these days for children and adults alike. Bright colours like crimson, emerald , sun- yellow and hot pink bring out the gota- patti work even more!
