Festivals brings people together and provide hope and happiness in the darkest of times. It is certainly a dark period with the world battling a somber pandemic. Yet, the upcoming festivals provides a light at the end of the tunnel. And Navratri is one such festival that brings with it positivity and hope.
It is one of my most favorite festivals. The strong feeling of courage, optimism, and excitement that fills the air is something no words can describe. Along with Durga puja and Dussehra fair, people wait excitedly for dandiya which is staple during these 9 days. This year, dandiya nights will be limited to our homes and so will be the puja. But that is not an excuse to not wear your finest clothes. Festivals are all about being happy and having, fun and wearing fabulous clothes is one way to shine and be happy.
So, even if you are meeting your friends for Durga puja on a zoom call, make sure your outfit is out of this world. Here are some amazing options for you!
The traditional dress-saree is an epitome of festive wear. You can never go wrong with a saree it is perfect for Navartri sthapana or Durga puja. With so many styles of sarees existing now, you can make an interesting statement. Think pant style or dhoti style sarees or a blazer over your saree for 2020 Navratri.
Experiment with your blouse design, go for something sexy or use your crop top as a blouse. When you wear a saree, you have unlimited options to accessorize it. One tip: if you go for a bun, make sure you put a flower in your hair, it will make a huge difference.
2. Dhoti with blazer and dhoti with a crop top
Fusion clothes are so in trend these days. They are comfortable, chic, sexy, and traditional as well. Men can style a comfy chic dhoti with a smouldering blazer, and it will look stunning for puja or small family get-together.
Women can style a crop top with a dhoti or with a small kurta or a tank top with a long shrug. All these options will look plush for any day of Navratri. With fusion clothes, it is best to tone down your accessories.
3. Fusion lehnga
It is perfect for all girls who want a combination of traditional and modern dress. It is a lehenga that you can match with long-sleeved top or a tank top or any other unique designed blouse. Make sure the lehnga has enough hues fabric so that it makes for the perfect twirl.
The best accessory for this is heavy earrings and some fancy bangles!
4. Jodhpuri pants for men
Jodhpuri pants are so in trend. They are cosy and looks riveting with even a shirt or kurta with or without a waistcoat. So, this Navratri, try this look instead of the usual kurta-pyjama.
5. Heavy dupatta with a simple kurta
Don’t want heavy clothing? Well, this option is easy breezy and festive as well. Buy a heavy silk or chanderi or bandej dupatta and pair it with your basic solid colour kurta. Silver jewellery will pair with it perfectly.
Go crazy with your outfits. Go with bold and comfortable choices and be the center of attraction!
