Navratri, Durga Puja and Dussera are celebrated across the country and just like any other festival, people like to wear new clothes and flaunt their festive finery.
Natascha Tate, in-house stylist, LimeRoad, picks out her favourite and trendy styles to help you ace your look this festive season and also to make you stand out from the crowd.
Give Banarasi a twist
A Banarasi saree with floral zari motif and a trendy blouse will add oomph to your Puja look. A beautiful Banarasi saree never goes out of fashion. More importantly, for a festival like this which makes you go back to your roots and traditions, you should pick Indian weaves that will make you look bright and radiant. All you have to do is team up your saree with a contrast blouse.
Go for gota patti
It is that time of the year when you can bank on gota patti with yoke design (design near the neck) on the kurta and pair it with palazzo pants. If you think gota patti is too traditional, you are wrong. In fact, gota work is a latest sensation which is a must have this festive season. Hence when gearing up to flaunt your best attire, pick a mustard gota patti kurta with frilled sleeves and pair it with a palazzo, and make heads turn.
Bring dupattas to the fore
An orange art silk Bandhani dupatta can do a lot of magic. You can play around with dupattas in so many ways, and they are total value for money. A beautiful orange and gold combination will add charm to your simplest of salwar-kameez, kurta or lehenga-choli. You can pair it with a long skirt and a crop top or a basic suit, and hit the dance floor on the dandiya night and rock the party!
Play with colours
Navratri and Dussera is the perfect time to show off your traditional attire. So, what better time than now to buy a lehenga-choli and dupatta with eye-catching colours? Sequin work and pure chanderi fabric are also great for the occasion.
Don’t ditch the Anarkali
No matter how heavy your anarkali suit is, you can always count on it to keep you comfortable enough to want to shake a leg. A red Anarkali kurta suit with thread embroidery is a must pick.
Twirl in a skirt
Skirts to match that blouse sitting in your wardrobe forever is a must buy. Skirts are super comfortable because of the flare and come in stunning colours, prints and fabrics. Go for a fuchsia pink skirt to go with a blouse and a matching dupatta if you like.
