NAVRATRI LOOK for 2022
Navratri, one of the most loved festivals on the calendar, is celebrated with much aplomb in several parts of the country. Navratri means nine nights of getting dressed up, dance nights and much more.Picking an outfit for Navratri celebrations has three requisites – colourful, statement-making, and fuss-free.
Read on for the best style options to be good stead during the nine days of the festivities:
The Dress – The preferred hue for the celebrations is bright red, opt for a sharara set decked with gotapatti work. Think colour blocked kurta also. For a traditional yet off-beat category, choose an ivory kurta with cape or printed kurta featuring an uneven hemline.Nothing compares to the timeless elegance of a white Kurti paired with a phulkari or bandhej dupatta worn for the dandiya night to look stunning.Twirl-worthy lehengas and also lehengas without dupattas make for an interesting take on festive ethnic wear. Blend elegance and drama for a sure sartorial win. Think mirrorwork lehengas or go bold with unconventional colours. Adding a touch of tradition with bandhani or multi-coloured lehenga serves the right mix of current trends and age-old customs.
Accessories -Appropriate accessories are a must. Don’t be a creature of habit, step outside of the comfort zone by choosing some stellar add-ons. The ensemble can look twice as awesome with a pair of chaandbalis or floral earrings featuring pearl detailing. Oxidized silver jewellery worn adds a lot of oomph to the look.
Footwear – Juttis and metallic flats definitely make a winning choice when it comes to footwear. The right choice of footwear will help in dancing the night away.
Festivals are for both men and women so why should women have all the fun with fashion. The great part about traditional looks for men is its universal appeal. Here is how you can update your ethnic wear closet this season with a strong modern edge:
Dresses- For traditional occasions, add a touch of regal to the look with a printed silk kurta. Pair it up with churidar, jeans and suede wingtips. A slim dark blazer as well as formal leather correspondents work great if looking for a slightly different look, layer it over a striped or ethnic-print T-shirt. A dark, well-cut sherwani,tone-on-tone textured styles over overly-embellished ones are highly recommended. Alternatively, the sherwani can also double up as a long coat.
Footwear-Finish the look with leather shoes or throw it over T-shirts or jeans.
Classic black is a mainstay in case of formal outings but informal occasions gives the chance to flaunt newer styles with detailing like tucks and contrasting trims. Remember that silk kerchief suits in the welt pocket and is the perfect addition to the evening suit.
Don’t forget the most important accessory that i.e. the face mask, choose a matching one to look chic. Enjoy the festivities and be safe as the pandemic is still not over. So keep reading for more.
