Fashionlady brings you useful and important tips for your family on how to dress safely while popping crackers this Diwali. Here we are!
We know you love these chiffon sarees and gorgeous Georgette anarkalis. But, please note that these materials are not your safest bet when lighting the fireworks. Fabrics like chiffon, silk, and georgettes are easily susceptible to fire and adhere poorly to your skin while burning. The best thing would be to switch from your heavy party clothes and jewelry to light cotton fabrics.
You can choose between a fitted cotton kurti or a long cotton kurta paired with colorful leggings or churidars.
Say no to loose clothing
While long, flowing anarkalis or bulky lehengas can be all the rage this season, it’s best to avoid them when facing fireworks.
The delicate, rustling fabric of your Anarkali or Lehenga is an easy target to catch fire and cause damage. It is best to wear regular or well-fitting clothes to prevent the clothes from catching on fire.
Go from your voluminous Ghaghra and flare skirts to elegant and fitted jeans or churidars. It’s easy to handle snug, comfortable clothes rather than pulling on your designer lehenga while you light the flowerpots and Diwali bombs.
Avoid glass or metal bracelets
Women love to adorn their hands with beautiful bracelets in dazzling shades and varieties on festive occasions.
But while you are lighting fireworks, it is important to remove them because on contact with heat, glass bracelets can crack and metal bracelets heat up, causing discomfort and pain. Keep your hands free of bracelets and such adornments before going into any neighborhood with a firework display.
Keep Dupattas and Pallus at bay
Maybe Diwali is the best time to flaunt those intricately embroidered and richly colored long dupattas and elegant pallus saree. But limit this outfit for your Diwali parties and poojas.
While you light firecrackers and watch the cute firecrackers dazzle the Diwali night sky, go for Kurtis instead of salwar kameez and skip the nine-yard outfit.
Children tend to run around in excitement and fun while popping crackers. It is important to make sure that your children dress in soft cotton clothes and not festive adornments while popping crackers. Make sure your children are dressed in comfortable cotton clothes and their ears are protected with earplugs or cotton.
I wish you a happy and safe Diwali! Dress well, be careful and reasonable!
