Ways To Glam Up On Navratri

It’s time to welcome the Goddess once again. As the festive season engulfs everyone with the onset of Navratri, it’s time to rev up your style quotient. Whether it’s understated, bling, trendy or over-the-top, it’s time to look good every single day of the festive season. From bold colours, heavily embroidered traditional outfits and colourful jewellery, the festival of Navratri is not just about fasting and feasting. It is all about looking gorgeous on musical nights filled with dandia beats.

Here’s looking at how you can ace the festive look in Navratri and stay on trend:


Go muted on the first night of the festival with grey being the colour of choice. From dressing up in soft cotton handloom saris to going boho chic in a grey jumpsuit, the first night is all about muted shades. Accessorise with minimal silver jewellery to complete the festive look. Keep the neck bare by flaunting long danglers.

Eye-catching and bold, orange is the colour of the moment and is a great way to inject some vibrancy to your festival wardrobe. No, you don’t have to wear a bright orange predictable chaniya choli for the dandia night. Look cheerful in a printed orange maxi dress or a neon orange crop top paired with a high-waist pleated skirt. If ethnic is still your favourite, go for a kalidar orange anarakali suit. Experiment with long earrings.

Take a break from the usual red-green-blue and embrace whites on the third day. A white or off-white lehenga or anarkali with a dash of color with heavy-duty jewelry should be the look on the third day. If you don’t want to go for pure white, you can opt for shades like pearl-white, cream or ivory. Add pops of color to your white outfit by opting for colorful neckpieces or eye-catching danglers.

Red screams attention and you can never go wrong with this hue. Nothing works like a low-neck embroidered anarkali kurta or a shoulder baring off-shoulder choli teamed with a heavily embroidered lehenga. If you are not so much a lehenga person, go for a cool red crop top paired with a flowy skirt. Bring out the sparkly baubles like bracelets, jewelled belts over saris or skirts and matha pattis.
