Navratri – The festival which symbolizes the victory of good over evil (Victory of Maa Durga over Mahishasur) comes with nine days of celebration. People not only offers prayers to Maa Durga but also celebrates this festival through dance, wearing traditional clothes and making delicious delicacies. Festivities in India bring change in your daily routine and add colors to your otherwise monotonous days.
Garba & Dandiya were the dance forms which were earlier performed only in Gujarat, but nowadays it is performed by everyone across the country. It is the essential highlight of navratra festival without which navratra doesn’t end. People in a group perform this infront of Maa Durga.
Through this post I am going to give you style option to create a colorful dandiya/garba look. Recently I went for dandiya night which was organised by Country Inn & Suits, Sahibabad & carried this colorful gujarati look for the dandiya.
Since today is the last day of Navaratri festival, I know many of you must be planning to go for dandiya/garba tonight, so I thought of sharing my dandiya night look with you all.
I wore a traditional gujarati lehenga with dandiya dancers embroidered all over the lehenga. The lehenga is a mix of black & pink hues with colorful thread embroidery & mirror work. Instead of wearing it with its actual blouse, which was as heavy as this lehenga, I paired it with a plain silk crop top.
I styled it with silver jhumkas & a long silver & blue neckpiece. This long neckpiece actually gave this attire a true gujarati look. Last but not the least I pinned my pink mirror work gujarati dupatta (these gujarati dupattas are available in every color at Delhi Haat, Sarojini Nagar for Rs.250- Rs.350) at the side, since I knew I would be dancing a lot🙈🙈.
So, take a clue from this look and create your festive look enjoy the last day of Navratri.
