Six offbeat colours to sport this Navratri

We have all been waiting eagerly for the festive season to begin. The season that brings fun and frolic, good food and gatherings that we have all been looking forward to with bated breath. 

But the perpetual question remains, what to wear? What to sport for the nine days of festivities without making dressing up a tedious task?

So why not sport nine different colours all through the nine days! Here is how you can slay each day of the Navratri festivities:

#1  The Yellow affair 

 yellow outfits

Begin the first day of the festivities on a bright note with a yellow suit set that not only adds vibrance to your mood but also perks up your surroundings.

Whether you choose to adorn a plain flowy suit or a beautifully hand-painted kurta dupatta set, it is sure to set the mood for the coming days of festivities. 

What’s more? The colour yellow attracts positivity and makes you feel bright and energetic. 

The perfect colour to start the festivities with!

Style tip: Keep the accessories minimal so that the outfit is accentuated and the entire look is balanced.

#2  Green dream 

 Green outfit

Green is a refreshing colour that adds freshness to your day. On the second day of Navratri, sport a designer green saree or a flowy suit set in soothing fabrics like cotton silk, crepe or cotton that let you feel stylish and still be comfortable and go on with your day, whether at the office or at home. 

You can also pair different hues of green together, like mint and bottle green, lush green and pastel green to avoid going overboard with the colour and yet sport it like a diva. 

Styling tip: Add contrasting accessories with your attire or subtle embellished pieces, whichever go with your personal style to amp up the look.

#3  The Grey story

Grey, an English colour, when paired with traditional Indian colours like pink, purple, mustard yellow or green, adds a fresh new flavour to your outfit. 

On the third day of Navratri, sport a beautiful grey saree or a smart chanderi suit with a Fuschia or peach dupatta to jazz up your outfit while keeping up with the festive spirit. 

Styling tip: Add colour block heels and a bag to your outfit to add more colour to it. Oxidised jewellery will also look brilliant with a grey outfit. 

#4  Orange Gala

An orange outfit is sure to add a festive flavour to your day and fill it up with vibrance. Whether you are picking an outfit for work or festivities at home, orange is sure to let you stand out from the crowd. 

Pick a muted orange kurta set with a contrasting dupatta or a leheriya orange suit set to rock your ethnic wear. 

Style tip: Always ensure that you pair a muted colour like mint green, grey or pale yellow with orange to balance the colours in your outfit.

#5  White Wonderland

 white outfit

White is often underestimated when it comes to festive outfits, but if styled right it can add the right amount of regality to your ethnic outfit. A white outfit allows you to intertwine your own personality with the outfit with how you style it. 

Pick a bandhani dupatta with an off white suit set for the ultimate festive look or pair your embroidered white kurta with a matching dupatta.

To make it look more formal, you can pick a slender white kurta with a hand-painted or pastel organza dupatta. 

Style tip: Pair your outfit with pearls or rose gold jewellery to keep the look office-friendly.

# 6  Royal blue

 blue salwar suit

Blue is often considered a very formal colour that goes best with western outfits. But what is often overlooked is that it's a very versatile colour that can be adorned in ethnic fits as well. 

Royal blue gives you a structured look and brings a lot of royalty to your outfit.

To balance the deep hue, pair it with Fuschia pink or the traditional rani pink for a bold look or pair a hand block printed blue kurta with a deeper blue coloured bottom. No matter how you style it, blue is sure to make you feel festive.

Styling tip: You can pair bold accessories with your royal blue outfit to add an extra oomph.
