Stitch The Festive Cheer In Your Navratri-Ready Closet With These Celeb-Inspired Lehengas

By  | 

The homecoming of India’s biggest festivals has every home excited. With roads filled with dancing crowds to every to every road-side DJ party that refuses to dial both the fun and volume down, the festive cheer has every Indian city thrilled. Besides an aisle of jars filled with our favourite sweets, our closets seem to witness the overload of occasion wear. And as the season of Navratri nears our doors, the idea of finding a piece for larger-than-life garbas is must. Post the years that the world has spent at home, fighting covid, the joy of socialising with friends and families is twice exciting. And statement-making in such cases is an unsaid norm. While the evolution of Navratri fashion is often reduced to shell, pom-pom-laden lehengas and colour of the day, the need to pick a versatile, fab and one-of-a-kind set is always a hurdle. So, we have decided to welcome our favourite celebes to help you pack a powerful look for this Navratri. From DIY, and typography to fun layers, come take cues from these stars. 

Prints Galore

Festivities and glitter go hand in hand, but when it comes to comfort, prints enter the room. With trend charts rooting for eclectic prints, bold designs and a pattern-on-pattern marriage, Navratri seems to be the best occasion to allow you some space for experiments. For starters, one can easily find a perfect pick in flower-laden skirts and matching cholis, to fall in love with the style. And if you are convinced to say yes to the prints, take style cues from actress Nushrratt Bharuccha’s Punit Balana lehenga, or Ananya Panday’s Torani lehenga.

Cheerful geometry 

Geometric prints are a boon for haters of floral festive sets. Building way for geometric patterns, colourful lines and ethereal ellipses, Indian designers have welcomed this pattern trend into long aisles of occasion wear. With skirts leading the trend in two-piece sets, we saw a heavy mix of monochromes, lively hues, mixed with triangular motifs, and Aztec-inspired zig-zags resting in celebrity wardrobes. For the takers of this pattern, you can loan some style inspiration from Kiara Advani’s JJ Valaya lehenga, cinched with a belt, Shilpa Shetty’s geometry-met-fruits set and Sanjana Sanghi’s wise, print play in purple from label–Torani.

Hand Made With Love

Amidst the ongoing craze for crowd-funded trends, a one-of-a-kind silhouette is always a piece worth treasuring. If you have a liking for something different, which stands apart from the usual collection of bandhani skirts and glamorous lehengas, these skirt designs as modelled by film producer/stylist–Rhea Kapoor deserve your attention. The custom-made, face skirt by designer Anamika Khanna and the spectacular Love lehenga by designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, have a cut above the classics. You can find your pick from designer stores or tailor make your own special piece in your favourite colour palette.

Flare And Fabulous 

One imperative box that your garba uniform needs to tick right is flare in abundance. For all your best moves to soak in the spotlight, your skirt needs to support. A fuss-free or rather Can-Can-free attire is a delectable purchase for shoppers in this category. This multi-layer, print-drama set in ice blue on Khushi Kapoor, makes the idea of festive dressing all parts comfortable and graceful. The unique print-play comes with a semi-sheer, one-shouldered choli, that is both youthful and refreshing.

Functional Lehengas 

The idea of a functional and fashionable festive set is a dream that for many, never comes true. But with occasions that call for non-stop twirls, and come with disclaimers that say, “take care of your belongings,” how is one supposed to attempt any one of the two with monumental lehengas? While pockets in womenswear have always been a luxury, their dearth in the occasion wear section has us even more annoyed. But thanks to some designers, the idea of pocketed lehengas is a sapana turned into reality. Much like Katrina Kaif’s pocketed, Anita Dongre lehenga, and designer Vedika M’s hand-painted lehenga on Sonam Kapoor, which features a belt bag, you can make a wise investment for this season of festivals.

Colour Therapy 

Nothing stitches the extravaganza of festive cheer than the graceful combination of colours. For the fans of multi-coloured, patch-work and pleat-separated skirts, Masaba Gupta’s bold motif skirt from her festive collection, Shilpa Shetty’s boho-spin lehenga choli from label–Gopi Vaid and Anushka Sharma’s classic Sabyasachi number will guide you towards a flavourful festive pick. A vibrant and lively piece as such will take off the burden of accessorising as well.
