In India, Navratri marks the start of the festival season. It is a nine-day celebration dedicated to Goddess Durga’s nine manifestations and her tremendous courage. The fortunate festival occurs twice a year, with the Sharada Navaratri falling near the autumn equinox (September-October) and the Vasanta Navaratri falling near the spring equinox (March-April).
Sharada Navaratri will be observed this year from October 7 to October 15. Worshiping nine Goddesses in nine days, pandal decorations, reciting of Hindu scriptures, and more are all part of the festivities. The event also kicks off the countdown to Diwali, India’s biggest festival of lights, which takes place twenty days following Vijayadashmi (Dussehra).
The festive season has arrived, and it’s time to dig out your brightest, most colorful ensembles. With Navratri starting today, women and men traditionally wear a different color for each of the nine days preceding Dussehra.
Yellow symbolises nature, and is the colour of maa shailputri.
As the first colour of this festive is Yellow, we have two looks for you which you can carry gracefully.
You can always go for a yellow kurta and pair it with your basic or torn jeans, this will give you a very decent yet fashionable look. And if you want it more extravagant then you can always go for ghagra’s choli paired with jeans. Trust me, it will only make it look more chic and trendy. To make it look more effective you can pair it with silver oxidised jewellery with footwears of your choice
For Men they can opt for a yellow basic kurta paired with jeans, followed by traditional juttis. You can always go for this look if you have a long day at work. Again if you want it to be extra chic, you can pair a yellow shirt with a khaki coat and a dhoti.
