Women’s Festival Attire (Dresses and Ornaments) For The Bright Dussehra

Durga Puja is the time when women of all ages tend to shift towards the traditional attires. The young girls have excitement to drape themselves up in different kinds of saris or churidars and older women are on the lookout for the new kinds of design or some material for this festive season. The markets and also the online shopping sites offer several attractions to its buyers. Usually every puja season there are certain trends are which are followed religiously almost by everyone. Several kinds of prints or designs come up and you can see almost everyone wearing them or certain materials which became instantly famous.


Now I am going to list down a 4 day look book which will consist of what you can wear and also what jewellery you can try out with those outfits.

Shasti is the day from when people actually start pandal hopping. For this day you can try out the colour blocking scheme that people are into a lot. Just pair two bright items together. Like a bright fuschia pink kurti along with royal blue pants. Add a colourful scarf or dupatta if you want. Do not forget to wear some light silver/imitation ornaments as they will add sparkle to your entire get up. Women of all ages can try out this colour blocking scheme. Even in saris you can try out for example a yellow linen sari pairing it up with a bright chrome yellow coloured blouse or you can wear a beautiful printed light chiffon sari which will be super comfortable to wear.


For Saptami I will say stick to outfits which are easy for you to carry. Go for something like a crop top paired with palazzo or a beautiful printed tunic paired with basic jeans or the very basic staple long kurti or a chikankari kurti pairing it up with a palazzo. Prints are in fashion and you can invest in a beautiful indigo dupatta or an ajrakh printed dupatta or kalamkaris as they can simply glam up your basic Indian look. If you are wearing western do wear the basic jewellery like studs or a chain and if you are wearing Indian do wear some jhumkas to spice up your look. For the saree lovers, they can wear handlooms or light silks pairing it up with lightweight terracotta or silver jewellery as it will be easy to wear in this weather. Belts are again now a huge rage and in this day you can just casually tie up your belt over a kurti or even over your sari. By doing this you will indeed be a head turner in the crowd.

Ashtami is a day when women of all ages stick in wearing the basic traditional white sari with red border. These days in the market the red border pattern has been changing a bit and there are motifs also all over the sari. I feel one can try the saris out and be a bit more experimental with the blouse. Instead of the basic sleeves and neckline one can think of various other styles that will be comfortable for them. Hence the traditional outfit is still prevailing with just minor changes. Often older women wear gold, if you are not comfortable in gold then there several other options but do wear some jewellery on this day.
Navami is a day that I feel people should enjoy the most as the next day is the end of the festival. For this day I will suggest to wear something gorgeous. If you are thinking of wearing a sari you can think of the lightweight kanjeevarams or the light Benarasi saris. Apart from that there are different kinds of silks which look gorgeous and are very lightweight and easy to wear like the Opara silks. You can invest in one such sari and pair them up with a bit heavy jewellery.

Apart from what I have listed above you can invest in fabrics like chanderi, south cotton, south silks, light weight Benarasi fabrics, chiffon and many such other materials as they are presently in huge rage and also because at this time of the year you can bargain in the markets and in online shopping there are several exciting deals and discounts they offer for which you can invest in.
