The biggest festive season of India is right upon us with less than a month to go before we celebrate Durga Puja or Navaratri, depending on which part of India you live in. It is also the grandest fashion parade you’ll ever witness giving close competition to the world famous carnivals of Rio and Goa.
These five days are all about having fun and flaunting your new wardrobe. Choosing the right dress to help you stand out from the rest can be quite a daunting task. So here’s your style guide for this year’s Pujas.
Kick off the festivities in something casual but chic. Long flowy jackets or shrugs in checks or floral prints are a hot favorite this season. Wear them over ankle length denims or denim shorts for a trendy look. Complete the look with block heels and minimal makeup.
Go for a little dressier look on this day. Pair a crop top with an embroidered long skirt or silk palazzos for a boho chic look. Complement it with junk jewelry, jootis and smoky eyes.
The festivities are at its peak and so should be your style game. Nothing less than the evergreen nine yards would do on this day. Opt for a traditional silk or handloom saree in vibrant hues. You can experiment with the blouse or choli. Highlight your eyes with kohl, tie your hair in a loose bun and complete the look with large kundan, jhumkas or chand baalis.
With the end of the festival approaching fast, it is time to turn up the heat. Go for a cold shoulder dress with ankle length boots or a maxi dress with high heels. Pair it with Afghani earrings for an Indo-Western look. Wear your hair in soft curls and keep the makeup fresh with colored eye liner and nude lips.
Keep it simple and traditional on the last day of the Pujas. Nothing works better than a cotton saree in the shades of white, gold or red. You can also wear a floor-length or asymmetrical Anarkali suit. Gold jhumkas, bangles and a red bindi and you are all set to end the festivities with a bang.
Be it the stifling heat or the incessant rain, the mile long queues or the swarming crowd, make sure you beat them all in style!beauty and lifestyle Dress Code for Durga Puja Durga Puja
