Navratri is the time to pray to Goddess Durga for her blessings through a rigorous fast of 9 days. However, for most of the younger generation, Navratri is all about those amazing and energetic dandiya parties. Navratri is a traditional festival, and therefore, you need to dress up for these parties in traditional outfits, but this definitely does not mean that you cannot experiment with your looks, and give your Indian traditional dresses, a trendy and glamorous twist.
We share a few styling tips with you, that will help you in getting that perfect balance of traditional and trendy in your appearance for this year’s Navratri parties:
Mix And Match
There is no need to go with the age old chaniya cholis. Mix and max your style and wardrobe by picking a nice red or orange or any other traditional colored crop top of yours and getting a nice mirror work done on the same. While this mirror work will give you the traditional feel and look, the crop top will make your entire appearance very stylish and trendy. Similarly, you can also experiment with your Ghaghara’s, and instead choose maxi skirts with Indian work done on them.
Accessories can completely change the appearance and impact of your dress. There is absolutely no need to opt for the traditional footwear or bags or jewelry for this occasion. Go bold and go modern with your choice of accessories.
Just make sure that you choose practical accessories, after all, you do not want a huge bag to weigh you down, while you are trying to enjoy dandiya on a highly energetic classic Dandiya number.
Straight Hair Is So Not This Season
Navratri and Dandiya are all about fun, and hence, the boring old straight hair look so does not match to this occasion. Instead, go for the bold waves or tousled look for short hair. Make sure you choose a hairstyle which stands out and makes a bold statement. You can accessorize your hair with big clips and other beautiful hair accessories to give yourself a nice chick appearance this Navratri season.
Too Much Makeup Not Required
You are going to be dancing all night and you are definitely going to be sweating a lot. So the first thing about choosing your makeup is to apply only sweat absorbent and smudge proof makeup.
Besides, you do not need too much makeup for this occasion, and hence, try to stay as simple and natural as you possibly can.
Go Crazy With Your Colors
There are so many colors present in this world, and Navratri itself is a very colorful festival. Therefore, to restrict your choice of colors, when choosing your dresses for this festival to the limited traditional colors of red, orange, yellow, etc., simply does not make any sense. You are going to be partying for nine days in a row, so why not choose some of the most trendy and funky colors, one for each day of this festival. Some of the colors that you can consider in this regard include tasty tangerine, which is an inspired shade of orange, roaring red, to give your traditional red color and modern look, royal blue, pastel greens, etc.
