Roll up your sleeves, as once again we are around the corner to the nine auspicious days of spirituality, flurry, fun and frolic.
Get your Navaratri look
With the onset of Navaratri the whole atmospheric vibes begin to change. These nine days of festivities and fun gives us a chance to come out of the otherwise monotonous life. It gives us the opportunity to socialize with people. Navaratri is one of the most energetic and vibrant festival, which not only brings all together for celebration but also gives a window of opportunity to embrace our culture and religion. The whole scenario turned into a vibrant one.
So why not revamp your style mantra!!!
Navaratri is not just about fasting, but looking your best on garba or dandiya nights is also equally important.
It’s a time to enjoy the festival after long practice sessions of garba and dandiya. Get all set to celebrate Navaratri to the fullest. It’s good to get your clothes, jewelry, accessories and makeup ready before the festive days.
Here I am proposing 5 tips to get your Navaratri look :
1. ARRANGE YOUR OUTFITS
First and foremost keep your garba outfit ready. It safeguards you from last minute hustle bustle. No doubt you want to look fashionable and appealing. For that you don’t need to go overboard, just a few efforts can make you able to enjoy these special days more splendidly.
YOUR FESTIVE LOOK MUST BE FASHIONABLE YET COMFY
Choose cotton printed lehenga over the heavy embroidered velvet lehengas. As during these super energetic nine days, you dance a lot, and as a result sweat a lot, your heavy outfits create hindrance in your dance moves and also makes you uncomfortable.
Natural fabric lehenga choli will allow your skin to breathe.
CREATE DIFFERENT LOOKS
Certainly traditional lehenga-choli looks quite stunning on garba nights but you can create distinct looks to bring variation in your festive look, like besides lehenga-choli you can deck yourself up in Anarkali suits and you can go for bright maxi dressor bohemian skirts.
These skirts give you ample comfort to lose yourself on the dance floor without losing on your style quotient. Pair it up with colour coordinated and well fitted fashion tops.
BLEND YOUR FORMAL WEARS WITH SHRUG OR JACKET
Sometimes it happens that you set foot in the garba/dandiya party straight from the office or your workplace. You don’t have time or facility to change your outfit for the occasion. In such a scenario you can create a festive twist with your office wear, by adding a bright embroidered or mirror worked shrug or jacket and dupattas. You can complete your look with some jewelry
Select the right kind of dupatta, my suggestion would be to pick up the traditional designs like bandhej print, shell and mirror work dupatta. By these simple add-ons you are ready to rock in a dazzling and classy way.
BE MINDFUL OF YOUR MAKEUP
Get your makeup also ready. Festive time is the best time to show off your gorgeous looks. During Navaratri time, go for metallic colours for eye makeup and red or neutral for lips, as these colours go well with traditional dresses and Indian skin tones.
The colour of the lipstick depends on the colour of the outfit. If the outfit is multicolored or bright than go for neutral lips and when the outfit is neutral, choose red lipstick. This will enhance your overall look.
INCORPORATE OXIDISED JEWELLERY
Black metal or oxidised jewellery is mandatory to complete the Navaratri look. Navaratri outfits are incomplete without trendy oxidised jewellery.
Oxidised jhumkas and necklaces go well with mirror worked blouse and dupattas. If you are eager to experiment with your looks, you can blend golden jewellery with oxidised jewellery. Kamar bandh gives an impactful festive look.
2. JOIN GARBA/DANDIYA CLASSES
Join garba preparation classes, nowadays you get so many of such classes. These classes will help you to practice all your moves and will aid in building stamina for Navratri nights.
3. BEING CONSIDERATE OF YOUR HEALTH
Never ignore your health. Undoubtedly the Navaratri days are hectic, you have to cope up with your daily work routine along with whooping up the Navaratri night dancing and rejoicing. Maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat a balanced healthy diet.
4. HYDRATION IS CRUCIAL
Keep yourself hydrated as much as possible. Some people do fasting during these auspicious days. Sipping liquid in frequent intervals is crucial during these auspicious days,along with fasting, dancing is also the major activity which means more sweating. My suggestion is to have coconut water, lemon water, fruit juices and buttermilk along with the water. It keeps you hydrated and protects your skin from looking dull.
5. TAKE A GOOD SLEEP
A sound sleep is necessary to wake up fresh for the next day.
Get all set to dance together to the foot tapping beats of garba music, dress up to held everyone spellbound, bring radiant glow and glory this Navaratri. Have a Happy Navratri to you all.
