Navratari is upon us, and it’s once again time to celebrate the nine avatars of Hindu divine Goddess Durga. The festival begins from 10th October and will end on 18th October, and each of the nine days is devoted to different forms of the Goddess and denoted by nine different colours.
The first day of Navratri is dedicated to Shailputri, who is known to be Goddess Parvati, the daughter of mighty Himalaya. And the colour associated with this day, yellow. As you get set to do the garba, catch up with friends and family, here are some ways you can look fashionably gorgeous in yellow, the Bollywood way.
Lightweight sarees: If your workplace has a yellow dress code for the day in keeping with the colours of Navratari, then opting for a lightweight saree in cotton or chiffon is a fabulous idea. It will make you look stylish, help you stay in tune with the dress code and yet be functional for you. In keeping with the festive spirit, you can switch your normal pair of earrings to opt for striking danglers. Wear a microdot bindi to complete the look.
Salwar Kameez / Anarkali: If you are planning to partake in the evening aarti at your society or neighbourhood, the trendy anarkali is a great idea. You can opt for an overall yellow anarkali, and break the monotony with a dupatta in a contrasting hue. Simple, yet on point, we say. Add minimal accessories to your look so you don’t look overdressed for the occasion.

Lightweight lehengas: The October heat is not easy to deal with, so it’s only wise to opt for a lightweight lehenga in this soothing hue to kick off the first day of Garba. In case you don’t have a ready-made yellow lehenga, you can always add a hint of yellow in the form of a dupatta. Alternately, you can also choose to wear a lehenga skirt or crop top in the sunshine hue. Who said ethnic wear had to border on the heavy each time!
Fusion Fashion: Not a fan of conventional Indian wear? Fun separates should work for you. You can wear for the same colours from top to bottom or opt for contrasts. Looking to quirk up the look? Choose boots over regular ethnic footwear. And you thought traditional wear is boring?
Say it with a dupatta: Yellow is not really your colour, but at the same time you really want to stick to the theme. Dupatta to the rescue: Opt for an ensemble that you can easily add a yellow dupatta to. Now, that’s what we call comfortable fashion.
