It’s October. Food, fun and festivals mark the month as everyone gears up to get submerged in the celebrations. Speaking of which, the festival of Navratri is going on. And Navratri can be analogous with Garba Ras and Durga Puja. Dressing up for festivals is a must, which means a different unique attire every day and every night. Here are some of our recommendations:
These jackets amp up literally any plain outfit, giving it that festive touch. Wear a set of bangles and sport these jackets with whites and black for a little bit of colourful edge and you are good to go. Extremely comfortable and very pretty!
The any-time favourite, sarees, can be worn any time, especially during auspicious festivals like Navratri. The falling number of women who wear sarees makes it all the more unique to carry one on a festive occasion. With a wide variety to choose from, saree (if done up properly) is comfortable and feels light on the body. All the grace that comes is an added advantage!
Breaking the monotony of the ghaghra-choli (or chania-choli), the jaipuri blouses and skirts. They can be paired with a simple piece and makes an excellent combination. Each piece can be teamed up differently, giving a new look every time. Dress up or dress down, this pair looks elegant always!
If not anything else, this is one of the must-haves in your wardrobe - not just for Navratri, but all year round. These set of jewellery provide the subtle yet sophisticated look and can be worn on almost any attire - jeans, kurtis, sarees, indo-western - you name it, these jewellery have it all covered!

Not a fan of lehengas, but love the big round swirls of it. Worry not, and opt for an Anarkali. It comes in a range of colours and embellishments. Dance care-free and take as many rounds of garba or the dhunuchi dance this Navratri.
Just like the jackets, dupattas can be worn with any simple outfit to make it look festive. You can opt for a heavily embroidered dupatta (like bandhani or gota work). To keep the look simple yet classic, go for a contrasting colour dupatta to add a dash of colour.
