Celebrate this year Navratri Panchami 2017 i.e. the fifth day of Durga Puja 2017 with the color blue. Apart from its aesthetic values, the color blue dictates a powerful position in the world of fashion, offering you with an array of designs and styles. Go through our special 5th edition on the eve of the 5th day of Dusshera.
After the fourth, we will talk about the 5th day of Navratri. The 9 days of Navratri are dedicated to 9 avatars of Goddess Durga. The tradition of 9 colors is quite widespread in states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and other North Indian states.
As each day of Dusshera is dedicated to a particular form of Goddess Durga, it has its own value and significance in terms of colors too. Devotees offer saris to Goddess as per the color of day. For instance, Panchami color of the day is blue. So, devotees today offer blue sari to Skandamata. They even prefer to wear traditional attires in blue color.
The blue color is one of my personal favorites. Mostly known as royal blue or electric blue, I simply adore this shade. This fashion color looks great, when it is combined with nude shades, white, red, camel brown, silver, gold and even neon colors.
This Navratri, you don’t have to be an expert to add a pop of this shade into your traditional outfit. FashionLady suggests you one thumb rule when it comes to styling it in blue – Don’t overdo the blue!
Whether you’re wearing it on Navratri Panchami or planning to go blue this Diwali 2017, be warned not to mix this shade with other blue colors or else you’ll just end up looking like a Smurfette character. So, it’s better to experiment with other colors that I have mentioned above.
Electric blue can flatter all kinds of skin tones and even looks great on Indian complexion as well. This particular shade complements all neutral colors such as beige and even some bold colors like burgundy, pine green and fuchsia pink. Only remember, shades of blue on one another is a big no in the fashion world.
We offer you some of the best items from our collections, which are a perfect blend of colors, aptly suiting the festive mood and fashion alike.
On the eve of Navratri Panchami, we are today celebrating the Durga Puja in blue color. Scroll and get indulged in blue this Dusshera!
