The festive season is at our doors … and celebrations are galore everywhere! Nine days, 9 colours, but unlimited fun, frolic, food and fashion.
All you Bengalees out there, is your Pujo shopping finally done?!! Or you’re still hunting for ‘what to wear for Nabami night’?
Are you armed in your trousseau with the looks that would kill?
Let’s start with the notun bou’s
Your almirah must already be crashing because of all those sarees in so many different colours!! Let’s put those 6-yard apparels to good use!
Did we tell you that you could just make some small sweet changes from your work wear to be absolutely stunning for your all-night pandal-hopping?
With your formal trousers and shirt, all you need is a colourful dupatta and long earrings, and voila, you’ll be Pujo-pandal ready in no time. If heels are bothering you much, change into these stylish juttis or Mojdis.
Chunnis, dupattas and scarfs – especially the bandhani ones will be your best friend this Navratri. So colour the roads with RED, pink, Yellow, as you please!!
This year, you can look different with a scorching ethnic ensemble with ethnic belts and waist accessories.
Gear up with these edgy jugalbandhis as you dance through your dandiya night and make those aunties smirk while you’re clicking groupfies.
Twist the traditional saree with a pair of leggings and a mirror-patched choli, and then you are sure to raise the temperatures!!
Ashtami, Nabami, Dashami … here they come, and before they just go … up your saree draping styles!!
How about wrapping a 5-yard two-piece apparel in all its vibrance? Yes, you guessed right! Break the monotony and be a trendsetter with a gorgeous traditional Assamese Mekhla!
Take inspiration from none-other-than the gorgeous Sharmila Tagore –
And thus, Dashami is here. Our eyes may wet up with the departure of The Goddess, but wait … for the vermillion smearing ceremony!! So when you bid farewell to your loved ones, do so with élan. Bring out your dhakai’s and your lal-paar shada silks.
With renewed vigour, we get back to our normal routine, as we shout out loud Astey Bocchor Aabar Hobe!!
