9 Days 9 Ways
Navratri means 9 days of playful festivity for one and all. We see tasteful display of trends; be it music, dance or fashion. And as much as we long to be a part of it, deciding what to wear for all 9 days becomes really difficult.
A lot has changed over years, trends come and go playing around the traditional roots of handicrafts & handlooms (Gujarati embroidery, kalamkari prints, bandhani, lehariya, tie-dye, colorful beads, mirror work, gota patti, shells, etc.). We love the evergreen traditional ghagra cholis, anarkalis and patiyala suits and their grace, but we also love fusing Indian and western elements and the range of options current trends have to offer. Vibrant colours, pom-poms, tassels, cold shoulders, varied options of bottoms & layering rule the trend-chart this year.
In the current scenario where garba nights end soon, dressing your best and being on time to take full advantage of the festive fair is quite a challenge. So we have listed 9 different ways of the hottest Navratri fashions just for you.
Stack on those chunky traditional accessories; oxidized or colourful, unless you can handle it easily, it’s never too much for Navratri. It is very important for you to feel comfortable in whatever you carry in order to enjoy the festival to its fullest. If you don’t feel comfortable you would end up missing all the fun just because a wrong choice.
Keep your makeup minimal and waterproof. After all you don’t want to ruin your makeup while dancing (due to sweating).
Open hair turns quite unmanageable while you dance long, so you can experiment with different hairdos like a bun or a braid. Plus they look super with the ethnic look.
Also avoid heels please. Comfort comes first, so go flats this season with traditional juttis & kolhapuri chappals. Bonus they add a brownie point to your ethnic fused look.
So what are you waiting for now.. Aye haalo!!!
