The Festive season is back. Navratris are the times when the whole town is busy getting their ethnic outfits on for complete nine nights. You find women dolled up in their traditional outfits for many events which take place during Navratri. Navratri celebrations are filled with dance and music, with those all-night-long dance and festivities and most importantly Durga pooja.
Today I am going to share two outfits u can wear for Durga pooja. One outfit has that Bengali hint and a classic Durga pooja vibe going on. Another outfit is a south Indian fusion.
#1.Classic Bengali look
I love wearing ethnic clothes and experimenting different styles with them. Saree is one of my favorite Indian attires. It is glamorous, sensual, bold and traditional all at the same time. So I created this look with a saree as many women choose saree as their outfit when it comes to pooja.
The first outfit definitely has to be a classic Bengali look. I tried to put that Bengali essence as much as possible. This look is very simple, versatile and perfect for Durga pooja.
So, I wore this cream cotton silk saree with black and maroon border. The border has very fine silver and gold zari detailing, making it ideal for poojas and festivals. I paired it up with plain basic black top, as I wanted the border to stand out.
I wanted to add a bit of tribal hint to it, so I planned to skip gold jewelry. Instead, I paired it up with some oxidized silver jewelry. Plain black top made it simpler to play with jewelry, making them stand out more. Silver bell-shaped jhumkas were huge enough to dominate the look so I added an oxidized silver choker to balance the look. To keep that tribal hint going on I added a bracelet which looked perfectly tribal and went perfectly with other pieces. I finished the look with a rose gold watch and few oxidized finger rings.
For shoes, I wore black heels with gold studded ankle straps.
For makeup, I tried to match my lips with the bindi. As I was carrying a very bright lip I wanted my eyes to be very subtle. I created a brown smoky eye to keep the look balanced. I highlighted the high points of my face and warmed it up a little bit using a bronzer. A coat of mascara and a thin eyeliner on my eyelids gave a finishing touch to my look.
Style tip:- pair your saree with heels for better draping and easier walking.
