I received an email a few days ago from one of my readers. She had asked me if I could give some tips on what to wear this Durga Puja and Navratri. With such a long celebration doing round the corner, it’s pretty obvious to look into your wardrobes and say, “Crap, what am I going to wear this Navratri?!”

Let me tell you shopping around at this time of year makes me so confounded with all the latest trends and choices available extensively and not to mention the tempting sales at all online retail outlets where I feel I should just grab everything!
The air is already filled with festive mood and excitement. With Navratri and Durga Puja near-at-hand, the stores are already laden with latest trends, designer wears and even customized pieces. Like I have already published the collaboration of Rohit Bal with Biba in one of the previous editions, there is lot more to be unfolded this festive season.
Durga Puja, being an eminent festival in West Bengal, markets are flooded with Ghicha silk saris and all-over Jamdani Dhakais, which have always been the flavor of the Puja festival. While women are flocking in to various stores to get hold of these Bengali classic, let me just take you through an array of some mind boggling designs, which are contemporary and traditional at heart.
I, on behalf of Fashionlady, is proud to announce that we have joined hands with one of the best manufacturers in the country to help our fashionista grab some unique and jaw-dropping pieces this Navratri.
We are already drenched in the festive mood and will be offering some rich collections. The items are not only going to raise the bar but can easily accord to anyone’s budget line.
I always feel very sad to see some physical stores and e-boutiques selling off their collections at high-end prices even though some of their pieces are not worth it. You do not have to always spend a part of your fortune to look graceful and gorgeous.
To help you dress up fabulously this Navratri and Dusshera, I have compiled some great style checks in this edition. In order to suit different mood and occasion, I have compiled different styles. As the week of festivity lies ahead, raise your fashion stakes with these hot fashion trends. Have a look!
#Structured ethnic wear
How can Puja festival be complete without opulent Indian traditional outfits? The good news is that Anarkali is still very much in trend this season. However, for the sake of latest designs, these pieces have now got a structured look. Have a look at these well-tailored and stiff lehengas, anarkalis and sari blouses.
You can never go wrong with a floor-length anarkali, which is quite a rage these days. Whether it’s floor sweeping or short length, an anarkali in different patterns, shades and drapes is the ideal outfit for not only for Dusshera but Diwali celebration as well. You can pair these outfits with ethnic jewellery pieces such as kundan or polki, which are great options to complete your look.
If semi-traditional designs interest you and you like to keep them sexy and fun then these anarkali frock dresses are the best options. These pieces are flirty yet feminine and stylish yet conventional. Since you’re shopping exclusively for Puja festivals, so make sure to keep the colour and detailing totally Indian.
If you’re lover of fusion wear then it’s not a rule to be kitsch all the time. There are fabulous styles, which can help you look super chic. You can choose from the wide varieties and team up any bright lehenga skirt with a nude sheer lace top or jacket. you can even add some twist by going asymmetrical and layered.
#Straight from the runway
The 70’s wide-legged palazzo pants and retro is back again with a bang this season. Not only are these pieces are a break from the typical salwar suit styles, but also look ultra fashionable. For those, who do not like going completely traditional, this is the best alternative. You can pair these stylish pants up with straight printed kurtas for your dandiya raas!
#Add a touch of Indianness
Go Desi for Dandiya nights by opting for an embroidered asymmetrical dress. This body flattering outfit not only gels effortlessly into the ethnic look, but also its gold detailing underscores the dress just right. Because the dress is already adorned with heavy embroidery work, you can keep it low with the accessories to avoid the overdose of gold and glitter.
