To get the festive look right with a long skirt as a lehenga might seem a little too difficult to get, but these B-town divas seem to have done a stunning job at it. So, wear your long skirt with a crisp white shirt or pair it with a gorgeous metallic number like Alia Bhatt. While searching a look for the upcoming Diwali party, we say go for a long skirt with prints quite like Tamannaah Bhatia’s or you can just throw on a jacket over your lehenga-slash-skirt like Karishma Kapoor.
