Come Durga Puja it is time for revelry, bonhomie and a whole lot of pandal-hopping. But as most occasions do, these festivities also bring forth the perennial question of our wardrobe choices. While all of us would like to look our festive best and indulge in nine yards of style, it’s often not the easiest option while hopping from one pandal to another.
Ladies, sit back and relax while we take you through a slew of attires that you can mix and match to look your stylish best this Durga Puja.
The eternal favourite Salwar Kameez – A style staple, the salwar kameez is your most versatile option. You can opt for simple cotton ones in bright hues of crimson, rani pink, turquoise and mustard with eclectic prints. Suits in rich fabrics like silk, brocade, georgette, net, crepe and tissue adorned with zari or stone work are sure to bring out the diva in you during the evening festivities. Patiala bottoms in multi colours also look great while adding a twist to your wardrobe.
Timeless style – Over time, the Anarkali has become a must have in any woman’s wardrobe. Adding instant glamour, the Anarkali is festive yet easy to manage. The style comes in several variations – from floor sweeping gowns to suits with churidars and from embellished necklines to extravagant borders, there is an Anarkali which is created just for you.
Boho chic – Festive fashion doesn’t always have to be the traditional saris, salwar suits and lehengas. Funk up your style by adding a dash of boho to your outfit with colourful, patterned pants paired with tank tops, kaftan tops or monotone kurtis. Versatile, easy to manage and super comfortable, this attire is for the free-spirited girl in you.
Fusion wear – Flaunt the modernista in you with ethnic skirts of varying hemlines. Team you skirt with short kurtis or a tank top paired with a textured jacket in bright hues. Long sheer jackets with flowing skirts also look great; not too dressy yet ensures that you stand apart from the crowd.
Traditional Style – In varied silhouettes and styles, lehengas make a case for being traditional yet functional and lets you have a gala time with your pals during Durga Puja. Lehengas come in straight cuts, flared skirts, fish tail style and the new blockbuster, the sari-style draped lehenga. Pair your lehenga with a short choli or a navel grazing blouse and you are set to scorch any pandal that you visit.
