Navratri, nine nights of shining and dancing, is just round the corner. The festival of Navratri which is dedicated to the worship of our Goddess Devi Durga Mata, is yet all about dancing Garba. Also known as dandiya-raas, it is the native dance of Gujarat. It is celebrated with much fanfare, especially in western part of India.
And what makes Navratri vibrant and multi- hued is the colorful outfits that adorn the women as well as the men. Navratri is one of the most beautiful festivals in India, which is celebrated all over.
Apart from the auspiciousness of the festival, it is not a surprise to find a lot of young girls dressing up their best for these nine auspicious nights. Hectic shopping of purchasing clothes and accessories, the mood is always buoyant.
During Navratri, every one adorns themselves in vibrant chaniyacholis or even gorgeous salwars, not to forget those jaw dropping accessories. Added to that flaunting a Maa Durga pendant will give it just the right touch of authenticity of the occasion.
Let us take a look at some of the best fashion trends this Navratri and see what we can try out, in order to celebrate this festival in gay and joyful mood.
