Just some days back we bid good bye to our beloved Bappa, and now it’s already time to start preparing for the Navratri fun. Apart from the religious importance, the fun-filled nine days of Navratri are known for delicious vrat food, enticing dance moves, festive fashion and late nights. Yes, you can stay out till late at night and no one will question you… (I wish there could be more such days)!!
Let’s talk about Navratri Fashion in this article, who said that a Navratri dress necessarily means a chaniya-choli. There are so many ways in which we can add the festive glamour without compelling ourselves to get into this age old attire.
Yes, you heard it right. You can wear dresses for the dandiya event and still look occasion-perfect. The key here is to choose dresses that have an ethnic feel (may be print or fabric). Opt for traditional colours, prints or embroidery that gives an ethnic yet contemporary touch to your look.
Market is flooded with different kinds of palazzos, just play with different lengths, prints and patterns. Pair them up with matching short or crop tops to look your best.
We have seen numerous Bollywood divas like Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Soha Ali Khan and many more sporting Sari Dresses or dhoti style saris on various occasions. I think even we can give it a try and look stunning in this fusion dress.
Let me make it clear that by skirts I don’t mean long cotton skirts, here we are talking about fusion skirts that will give you an ethnic touch without actually going all traditional. Opt for colourful skirts and pair them with shirts or tops in neutral shades. Sonam Kapoor, our own fashion diva paired a beautiful skirt with a white shirt to balance the colours and look stunning.
Who said shorts are forbidden to a Graba event? You can definitely wear it to such events and be that head-turner. For this occasion, instead of wearing it with a top, opt for a short kurti (short enough to show a few inches of your shorts).
Ask any girl and she would agree to how comfortable a dhoti pant is. And when you are out for hours of dancing, nothing can keep you more comfortable than dhoti pants. Go for the kill with ethnic shades and fabrics. You must give silk and cotton silk a try.
No outfit is ever complete without the right set of accessories. Find a nice ethnic jacket or stole with block prints or tribal prints. You can also find jackets or shrugs with Rajasthani style embroidery. They seriously look fab!
Don’t overdo the makeup; it might start bleeding due to excessive sweating (especially if you are planning to dance hard). Apply a minimal waterproof makeup for that natural glow and élan. Also remember to tie up your hair into a bun or may be a side braid. For more such beauty tips check out our article on 9 Ways to a Radiant You this Navratri
