India is a land of festivals, so having ethnic wear in your kid’s wardrobe is more of a need than a want. But buying ethnic wear that suits the brief is not always easy. Sometimes it feels like there are too many choices to choose from and sometimes it’s the dead opposite. Whatever the case, mommies, we’ve got your back!
Here is your one-stop shopping guide for getting your child that perfect outfit on this Diwali. Lights, fireworks, sweets, gifts and to top it all of, amazing clothes for your child to dazzle in - It’s like a cherry on top. What more could you ask for?
For your Girl
The Classic look
Whether you're dressing your little sweet pea for a festival or for a social gathering, ethnic wear is a popular choice (and if we’re being honest, a recommended choice as well). An embroidered lehenga is a popular choice among moms. Getting a multicolored one or one in a neutral tone will ensure that you can match it with different cholis and you have a new outfit every time!
Pair it with a flowery headband and a comfortable but stylish footwear that will complete the look.
Skirts are a fashion item that will always be in trend. What’s another thing that’s always in style - Polka dots! Imagine a polka dotted skirt set in various attractive colours that’s at a discount right now. Unbelievable, right? You can never go wrong with skirts. That being said there are a few things you need to take care of while buying skirts - the material, length and the leg room your little one has in it.
A bow clip on your kid’s hair and ballerine shoes will give a Minnie-mouse-comes-to-India look that is super cute!
A Mini you
Seeing a mini-version of yourself running around in your home as you prep for the festival is a delight for the eyes. Now, we don’t know what you’re thinking. It’s festival and you already have a lot on your hands, do you really want to spend so much time on draping a saree on your child and helping your child manage throughout the day? There’s a simple solution for this - Ready to wear, stitched saree. A silk one if you’re going for that classic traditional look or a chiffon saree for an east-meets-west look.
That comfy yet stylish look
Ethnic doesn’t always mean dressing it up. Sometimes, the simpler you go, the more elegant you look. Taking the advice of Chanel - “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off”,
So class up your child’s wardrobe by buying a palazzo set. If your neighbours can rock it, your child can too (if not better). It comes with a jacket that adds a little bit of flair. Pair it with simple ethnic footwear and you’re good to go.

For your Boy
The classic look
You might’ve already guessed that a salwar kurta set would be at the top of our list. A dark coloured bottom is usually preferred because even if your son is having fun and jumping around, there won’t be any dirt stains seen as an evidence to this. A little more unconventional but none the less equally stylish option is breeches. Pair it with a light coloured kurta in colours like beige, half-white or white. These are not only elegant but also functional. Jutis in a neutral tone will go perfectly with any salwar kurta set.
A mini version of your other half
Take it way back to the roots - lungi dance style. Well, not exactly a lungi but a more festive and classy version of it - Dhoti. Dhoti sets are becoming increasingly popular amongst young boys. These dhotis are also pre-stitched so you don’t have to worry about tucking it in all the right places. A dark silk shirt in blue or maroon will go incredibly well with a dhoti. While you’re at it, why don’t you place a little bit of kumkum and sandal on his forehead? Hey, if you’re doing something, you do it the best you can, right?
