Festivals in India bring along a lot of joy, delight and the charm of slipping into our best outfits. With the onset of spring, Navratri is one of those festivals which are no more limited to fasting and revering, but also involve decking up and keeping the festive vibe buzzing throughout the nine days. Dressing in festive yet subtle and elegant attires is something that everyone looks forward to.
Here are some styling tips:
The colorful yarns sewn and adorned with mirror work in pop shades of purple, magenta, green, orange and more, on a base of beige, off-white, red and yellow, are a perfect match for designing ethnic ensembles this Navratri.
Dipped and dyed in bright summer hues of orange, yellow, red and blue, the feather-like and breezy Kota Doria fabric can be fashioned into heritage Kota Sarees or fusion outfits like capes, asymmetrical or front slit kurtas.
Ensembles like straight slit kurtas, teamed with crinkled skirts or palazzo pants, mirroring the palatial Mughal designs of gardens and opulent Mughal Architecture on fabrics like Cotton and Chanderi Silk are an ideal pick for Navratri.
The sheer damask, floral and geometric Jacquard Motifs exude a springtime festive feel to every outfit designed. One can design jackets teamed with printed cotton anarkalis, straight slit kurtis, palazzo pants and more for the festive occasion.
A summer staple fabric, embossed with gold foil prints, or subtle embroidery in designs of florals, paisleys, bootis and more, goes well with the mood of Navratri. Pastel shades, adorned with colorful threadwork and zari borders can be customized into a plethora of ethnic outfits, and even dupattas.
