From Sassy Salwars To Festive Sets, Pick A Navratri Look That Is More Than Just A Lehenga!
The season of festival is upon us and there is so much that one needs to tackle in terms of style. Besides decorating our homes and planning out family soirées, the idea of finding a perfect pick for cheerful tyohaars can be somewhat of a task. First in line is of course Navratri and the season of daily garba nights. A daily colour criteria can add up more stress to building a look from scratch. However, over time the evolved format of what a garba-costume, should look like has changed to personal preferences. With a plethora of refreshing silhouettes, crawling the aisles of designer festive collections and minimal entering the jazzy pile of ghaghara-cholis, there’s something for everyone. And while lehengas will never leave the top spot of Navratri’s staple pick, the keepers of a rather mellow and more relaxed aesthetic, are hopping from place to place to find their partner in twirls. Hence, we have picked for your some interesting silhouette options, that will deliver a unique taste, serve your comfort and also help you take the endless chakkars.
Calling For A Kalidar
Kalidars are probably another term to Indian ethnic wear. A silhouette that is both easy on the body and delivers maximum elegance, kalidars have been a celebrity favourite pick in the case of ethnic wear. The new-age formats of this style, have found a combination with both denims, old-school churidars, comfortable salwars and roomy palazzos. For someone who hopes to go a little hatke this year, pick a flavourful kalidar in shades that you love. The idea of finding an ideal piece in this will also make up for a versatile garment in your closet. You can find your pick from the festive range by–Lashkaraa and Kalki.
With the changing times, shoppers are taking cues from celebrity closets to experiment. Followed by top-ranking fashion trends, separates have found a spot in almost every starry closet. With movie promotions and Ganpati darshans, allowing them a chance to step out of the usuals, coordinated sets are enjoying popularity on designer shelves as well. Replacing the classics, these crowd-funded formats can lead your urge to experiment, on at least one of the festive days. And to help you style one, we are relying on designers Aseem Kapoor and Paulmi & Harsh.
Kurtas have ruled closets as sometimes the only source of festive-appropriate silhouettes. However, the idea of a basic kurta has been replaced by its varied versions that certainly have something more to offer. Both minimal and easy to slide in, kurtas are season-fluid and versatile members of the traditional wear category. With an undeniably relaxed nature, kurtas can help you dress up for even the smallest to the largest gatherings. Hence, we recommend this mustard kurta set from One Not Two and a quirky printed set by designer Ridhi Mehra.
