Since Navratri means a lot of dancing and enjoyment, women should go for silhouettes which are comfortable, whilst maintaining nice and snug in the appropriate areas.

As per A D Singh,

“Skirts with extra flare and kalis teamed with dainty blouses or backless numbers make for killer appeal.”

This year, you can go for shades that may go against the festive season but never against the mood – the color palette of champagne teamed with emerald green and all silver blouses will surely look smashing.


Such shades will surely bring the diva in you. Gone are the days when women used to love heavy embellishments and used to show up in heavy ghagras and jewelries, but modern day women loves to drape simple yet stylish. This is the reason, you would now see similar fashion in the market.
