Apart from the religious significance that Navratri holds, the nine days also resonate with delicious food, irresistible dance moves, unending fun and the opportunity of you dressing your stylish best in a traditional way. You need to look every bit of a diva and it is important to score high on the trend meter this season. As we all know, Navratri fashion is no longer restricted to the traditional chaniya-choli. Read on to learn ways in which you can make your outfits look edgy.
Just so you don’t have to waste your precious time looking for the latest trends, we have compiled a list of nine outfits that will help you rock the Garba dance floor with a distinctive style statement.
Floral printsThis year’s fashion trend is all about floral prints and nothing can be more colorful than flowers to celebrate this festival. Vibrant floral prints are dominating every element of the traditional attire, be it chaniyas, cholis or dupattas.
Dhoti PantsIf you are a pro at your Garba moves and wish to dance carefree, dhoti pants will be your favorite option this season. Pair your dhoti with a long kurta or a tank top and you are ready to go. You could accessorize this look with a pretty stole and some oxidized jewellery.
Palazzo PantsWe love our palazzos on regular days then why ditch them during the festive season? Opt for brightly colored palazzo pants and team them up with a basic colored tee and colorful Kolhapuri chapppals.
A block-printed chaniya-choli co-ord with an embroidered dupatta would make for a perfect Navratri ensemble.
Since off-shoulder/cold-shoulder tops are the current fascination, you could show-off your trendy side by pairing an off-shoulder choli with an ankle-length lehenga.
Statement accessoriesHeavy chaandbaalis, maang-tikkas and kamar-pattas that help you stand out are still reigning this season. Keep it simple yet outstanding – that’s the key. You can’t be loading yourself with jewellery to the extent where you can barely move.
Backless Kutchi work blousesWhat could possibly be a better melange between ethnic traditional and sexy modernity? This pretty Kutchi embroidered backless blouse would brighten up any plain-jane chaniya. It has made a come-back this season and is a current must-have.
Traditional vests (kotis)Kotis or traditional vests are a rage. The best thing about them? They are unisex. Men can team the koti over a simple kurta of a solid color and women can look gorgeous if it’s worn over a kurta or blouse.
Saafo or PagdiA saafo is a Gujarati version of a pagdi. It could be donned by men and women both. It keeps you in touch with your traditional side and adding this to your outfit will add just the right amount of quirk.
So guys, Haalo e Haalo! Let's make a fashion statement this Navratri with these stylish trends.
