The nine days of the Navratri have religious significance and is filled with the Vrat foods. But other than that there are energetic Garba and Dandiya dance moves that make the atmosphere lively. Women and men dress stylishly in traditional attires and go to the pandals for playing Garbha and Dandiya.
But if you wish to stand out in the crowd then you need to fill some party essentials in your wardrobe. This festive season dress elegantly.
Go with the vibrant colors
Gone are the days when women used to wear the traditional Chaniya Choli at the Dhandiya nights. The time has changed and women prefer their own personal styles to give that extra edge to their attire. You can experiment a lot with your white kurta. Pair your white kurta with vibrant colored dupattas and complete the look with metallic or silver jewelry. You can also opt for the ready-made lehenga saree which will be comfortable to wear all through the night. The recent trend is the bright neon pink and fluorescent orange colors so just chuck out the usual red and green colors and go for something bold. You can also try out with dhoti pants or the angrakhas. Add the Kamarbandh to accentuate your waist. If you come into the category of loving fusion then wear the plain shirt on top of an embellished skirt.
Add that glitter
In the traditional lehengas what adds that glitter is the mirror work, colorful beads, colorful embroidery works, and the shell designs. The mirror work is still in fashion but gota patti work in gold or silver is trending. Other costly options are Swarovski, Pearls, and other colored stones that make the look go crazy. Different dyeing effects are also used in the skirts and dupattas such as lahariya, bandhani, and the tie-dye look that gives that ethnic look.
If you want to experiment something different, then you can go with the off-shoulder choli since off-shoulders are in fashion again. Team it up with a long tail lehenga which will make the look traditional as well as fashionable.
Complete your look
Jewelry add-on that bling to your look. If you are wearing something simple then you can wear a stack of colorful bangles, necklace, long earrings, kamarband, maang-teekas, and payal. Don’t overdo it keep it simple.
Your makeup should be waterproof or else it will shed down once you start sweating. Go with smokey eye makeup and pale color on the lips such as peach and pink color.
Hairstyle can be vintage curls, fishtail braid, or a pouf. Otherwise, leave your hair open by French braiding your sides.
So what are you waiting for? Play with your styles and rock the dandiya floor.
