If you thought white color is only reserved for serious occasions then you better have a look at this post, where we offer you some fabulous ethnic wears in white to mark the third day of Durga Puja.
As we have been celebrating the colors of Navratri, after day 2, we bring you the third day of Navratri 2017 – Sindoor Tritiya Navratri. The third day is celebrated as Maha Tritiya Navratri Durga Puja or Sindhur Tritiya or Sowbhagya Teej or Gauri Teej.
The color of this day is white, which stands for Chinnamasta Dashamahavidya Goddess. The Chandraghanta Puja is performed today and it is celebrated with lots of gusto in different states across India, especially in West Bengal, Odisha, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
The color white stands for austerity and harmony. It is the sum of all other shades in the spectrum, which reflects light. Even though it is considered as a summer color, it holds huge importance in Indian festivities.
If we go down towards South India, especially Kerela, the white color is their traditional color. Starting from classic dance such as Mohini Attam to traditional attire, they prefer everything in white.
And when it comes to fashion, it has its own value in the fashion domain. If you do a survey, you’ll find out most of the red carpet dresses are in white till date. Even though this color demands huge attention and care, you can put in a little effort to maintain the hauteur and exquisiteness of your fashion quotient. Nothing to beat the glow an all-white outfit imparts, agree?
Now coming back to Navaratri fashion, the 9 days stands for different colors, signifying 9 avatars of Goddess Durga. As the name suggests. The third day is associated with Sindoor – the red powder or Vermilion. Bengali women celebrate this day by putting sindoor on each other’s forehead. They show up in white sarees with red borders for the puja.
The liberty that white color gives you cannot be given by any other color. This color allows to go for a mix and match with any color and the combination would just look great.
Fashionlady offers you an array of options in white color. Even though the third day of Durga Puja 2017 signifies white color, it does not necessarily mean you show up in complete white. You can still blend some bold colors such as red, purple or some lighter shades such as golden and pink to enjoy the festive mood. Have a look!
