Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Diwali is fast approaching and you're still scrutinizing every online store, looking for the perfect maa-approved get-up that will even earn you extra points with the ladies. We suggest you don't shell out your entire wallet this time and instead, invest in a really cool indie statement piece and mix it up with something that has been sitting in your closet forever.

We're taking cues from the on-screen heart-throb Harvey Specter for this one. If you're not one for all things ethnic, let this boss man's closet teach you a thing or two. His undeniable swag and swanky style made him a real ladies man. And it is true! Women can't resist a man in a simple white shirt, smart chinos and a monochrome well-fitted waistcoat. You'll thank us later.

The classic bandhgala jacket. India's answer to a really smart tux. Jodhpuris did us a favor when they cut this no-fail silhouette for the first time in India and it has been a hit ever since! Weddings, Rakshabandhan or Diwali - this jacket has found a permanent place in every Indian man's closet and is not going anywhere any time soon.
This Diwali, get set to impress in an impeccably tailored black suede jacket over a classic white shirt, and close-fit ripped jeans tucked into sturdy black boots.

You say prints, we say yes! Go all out with paisley, crafty thread-work and all things ornamental this festive season. The quirkier, the better. But make sure to balance the loud elements in your ensemble with a muted linen kurta over no-fuss jeans. And this could be the only time you can sport a pair of really cool sneakers with your ethnic do and get away with it.
