Navratri is not just any festival. It's a festival of colours, lights, and lots of dancing. Since it's the festival of colours, every day of Navratri is dedicated to a colour. So we have decided to give it a fashion angle. In this article, we have listed 9 lehengas matching the nine colours of Navratri.
So this time, you'll know how to kickstart your Navratri fashion like a diva... Follow our simple colour coordinated outfit guide and rock the Garba nights.
1. Grey Lehenga: The first day of Navratri is reserved for the colour grey. Needless to say, you will be picking out something grey for the first day of Navratri. We suggest you get a grey mirrorwork lehenga like this... A simple, chic and elegant lehenga will kickstart your festival fashion like it's no big deal. The blouse comes with an off-shoulder neckline and the lehenga skirt is embellished with heavy mirror work.
2. Orange Gujarati Print Lehenga: The second day goes to the colour orange. You can for a traditional Gujarati print lehenga. Since Gujarati prints look gorgeous in this shade, you'll also see many wearing this shade on the dandiya night too. You can add the charm of traditional Gujarati motifs in your 9-day Navratri wardrobe.
3. White Separates: Garba and Dandiya dance types hail from the state of Gujarat. So it is customary for you to add a bit of Gujarati touch in your wardrobe. What is better than traditional Gujarati mirror work? On the third day of Navratri, people wear white. Go for simple white lehenga separates but add the touch of mirror work to it. This will jazz up the white colour instantly.
4. Red Lehenga: Fourth day of Navratri is when people wear bright red ensembles. You can take this day's advantage and add a Bollywood-inspired-Gujarati touch to it. Remember Deepika Padukone red lehenga in Raam-Leela? It spoke volumes of Gujarati culture.
5. Blue Suit: After four days of heavy lookbooks, on the fifth day, try something elite and classy. Something that is Indian but has a touch of modern day designers. Like a piece by Sabyasachi here. It's simple, elegant and yet modern. It will also give you a break from the traditional prints.
6. Yellow Skirt: The sixth day of Navratri is when people get all jazzed up in the brightest summer colour: Yellow. You should keep the look simple since the colour itself is quite vibrant and jazzy. Add a solid shade pink or red blouse with a net dupatta on a yellow skirt. Keep it simple and flirty.
7. Green Skirt & Dupatta: The seventh day of Navratri is kept for the colour green. This hue is subtle and elegant. Try out a green lehenga skirt and a dupatta with a blue blouse.
8. Peacock Green Lehenga: Another classy addition to your Navratri lookbooks. The eighth day of Navratri is when people wear peacock green. This colour is classy and imparts a regal appeal. Wear it in a simple and chic way like this...
9. Purple Lehenga: The last day of Navratri should be bright and vibrant. And that is why the last day colour is, purple. Add a lot of bling and shimmer to your lehenga. In fact, wear a purple monochrome ensemble.
