Navratri Special: Paint The Town Red On Day 7

Give a twist to the traditional red this Navratri

Navratri Special: Paint The Town Red On Day 7

No Indian occasion is perhaps complete without a shade of red. The same goes for Navratri as well. So, on Day 7 of Navratari, welcome Goddess Kalratri with this fiery shade. Here are a few styling tips that will allow to indulge yourself in the festive spirit in one of the universally favourite hues.

Saree With Oxidised Jewellery

Nothing can beat pairing plain cotton and/or tussar silk saree and chunky oxidised jewellery! They look rugged-regal and will give an edge to your overall look. You can even opt for stone-bead accessories of contrast colours on your red saree. Either go for a heavily-kohled eyes or barely-there make-up look with this.

Red Anarkali And Printed Dupatta

A plain red Anarkali teamed with a dupatta with big and dispersed prints is perfect for those who want to go traditional but keep it simple. Opt for statement danglers for earrings, long-chained chunky pendants and kadas. Coloured stone jewellery will amp up the look all the more.

Red Saree, Funky Blouse

Red Saree

Want to add a little funk to your otherwise plain saree? Opt for a funky-printed blouse. Do not go for a stylish neck-line and sleeves of this blouse – keep them simple, let the prints talk. This funky blouse will remove the essence of too-much-traditional but your single hued saree will keep the balance.
