With the big fat Bong festival of Durga Pujo just about to start, we are pretty sure that you have already done most part of the shopping. But there are always last minute shopping trips to the mall, and those are the most fun of them all. Go shopping, and update your pujo wardrobe to look your best all throughout the festive season. Here are some trendy & stylish outfit ideas for the main days of Pujo, that’ll get you all ready for long hours of pandal-hopping, hogging with friends, getting together with family and enjoying the festival with a free spirit!
Sashti is the beginning of the Pujo days, and it’s very important that you make an everlasting impression on day 1 itself! Men can go for a classic white linen shirt and layer it with a Chinese collared linen jacket, in hues like melange grey, salmon pink, baby blue etc. along with denims and loafers for cool, effortless vibes. Women can flaunt a pretty ikkat printed or a floral off-shoulder maxi dress and accessorize it in a boho-chic style with tasselled flats, and a chic sling bag for lunch out with friends.
Day 2 requires you to be carrying forward that charm and fashion-on-point essence. Men can choose a fresher version of the kurta look. This outfit is all about traditional-meets-edgy and includes a khadi short kurta, paired with denims, a classic leather strap watch and a pair of sneakers. Ladies, go for an indo-western or fusion look by sporting a kurta dress with funky sneakers, and a statement Afghani necklace for a head-turning day of pandal-hopping.
Ashtami is everyone’s favourite, for its morning ‘pushpanjali’ and the ethnic ensembles that everyone excitedly flaunts at this ceremony. Women can choose to dress up in the finest silks, handlooms or cotton sarees with designer blouses and complimenting jewellery for reverent morning worship. Guys can experiment with a trendy kurta style and pair it with a regular churidar or go a mile further with a traditional cotton dhoti. Complement it with a smart metal watch and kolhapuri sandals for the ultimate Ashtami look.
Day 4 is all about going extra and looking your trendiest best! Guys can dress up in a classic, subtle, and dark hued slim-fit printed shirt. Pair it with a jewel-toned blazer, well-tailored trousers or chinos and derbies for a suave festive evening look. Women, on the other hand can go for a chic straight-cut floral printed kurta, paired with cigarette pants and a statement pair of earrings. Add some bling with an embellished box clutch for a fun Nabami night out with family!
Dashami Done Right
Finally, day 5 is all about ending the Pujo on a stylish note and bidding goodbye to the Mother Goddess looking your very best. So, guys, you can choose to go the modern-meets-traditional way by donning a long kurta with distressed denims and layer the look with a smart embroidered waistcoat. Women can choose a traditional color palette – pair a red & gold long flared skirt with an off-white or beige kurti or top for the perfect pujo vibes. Finish off the look with a jhumkas & jootis, and you’re all set to dance your way to the idol immersion procession!
