To begin with some basic information which a lot of us are not aware about, we all Indian associate with the festival of “Navratri” which is a multi-day festival celebrated in honor of Goddess Durga, most powerful feminine power. The word Navratri translates to ‘nine nights’, thus being a significant Hindu festival, it is observed for nine nights and ten days. As per age-old traditions, the nine nights are dedicated to the nine different avatars of Goddess Durga namely: Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skanda Mata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri and Siddhidatri.
Navratri celebrations vary from region to region in our country. During Navratri, wearing the similar color dress as that of Navratri color of the day is in vogue among’st women, especially in Gujarat and Maharashtra, which is slowly now taking over by all Indian all over the globe. Whether it is going to work or going for Dandiya and Garba, they are excited about wearing specific color dress during each day of Navratri.
We all wonder that how are Navratri colors decided and why do they change every year? Actually, the cycle is the same but it is the first color of Navratri that is decided based on the week day when the festival begins. The remaining eight days then follow a fixed cycle of colors. Each day is dedicated to one particular form of Goddess Durga. The color cycle for Navratri 2017 is: Yellow, Green, Grey, Orange, White, Red, Royal Blue, Pink & Purple.
From all the basic information, lets come to what we actually love about the festival and that is Dressing-Up. Since Dandiya/Garba implies dancing, women must go for silhouettes which are more than pleasant, while keeping up decent and cozy in the suitable zones of your body. Dandiya/Garba dresses are traditional and chic. Think low back, waved, mirror work, low waist and colorful prints. What to wear on Navratri and look the best on the Garba and Dandiya night? Here are some options to look eye-catchy each day:
Chaniya Choli is our first and the best choice for this festival. Giving a contemporary look to the traditional attire is the swag for Navratri 2017. Trendy silhouettes, stylish combinations and minimal embroidery looks breathtaking. Tri-color Chaniya Cholis are the best as they can be later teamed up differently. After the celebration is over your glittery Garba dresses just lie around in a deep corner of your closet and never appear throughout the year. So why be unfair to them rather reuse them uniquely.
