Embrace The Nine Colours Of Navratri The Celeb Way

by Drishti Mistry

The most kaleidoscopic and scintillating festival of the country is upon us. Like us, do you also wonder why every year there is a sea of people wearing the same color on the same day in unison as if it was an unsaid dress code for some kind of a grand party? Turns out, they are worn as a devotional gesture since each auspicious colour is symbolic of the nine avatars of goddess Durga. This Navratri, take cues from these taste making celebs to keep your style game rolling for all the nine days!

Youthful Yellow For Day 1

Synonymous with the goddess of nature, this hue expresses joy and happiness. Channel Tamanna Bhatia with this yellow lotus printed saree and finish the look with a pair of shoulder dusting statement earrings.

Gleaming Green For Day 2

Madhuri Dixit Nene embodies the essence of green to perfection – the colour of spiritual knowledge in cultural context of Hinduism. Exude equivalent elegance and grace with this handwoven banarasi saree and minimal accessorizing plus loosely pulled back hair.

Gorgeous Grey For Day 3

Since this day is associated with the moon goddess, the colour grey is worn in her honour. Bookmark this look on Manushi Chillar as it makes for the perfect grey mood board. Adorn our rendition- this embellished lehenga with a tassel blouse and matching dupatta. Complete the look with chunky doorknocker earrings.

Ornate Orange For Day 4

Attributed to happiness, brightness and energy, orange is the most traditional colour there can be. We recommend you follow Kajol’s suit on this one with this silk kurta set featuring aari work. Complete the look with your traditional jhumka earrings.

Witty White For Day 5

A symbol of peace and purity, this hue is a classic one and easy to experiment with. Let Parineeti Chopra show you how it’s done- throw on a chanderi anarkali with gold accents for the festive touch and complete the look with temple jewellery.

Ravishing Red For Day 6

Associated with the anger of the goddess with the enemies, this hue also represents fire, wealth, prosperity and fertility. Let Priyanka Chopra be your inspiration for this one – a red saree with golden accents completed with dainty danglers and diamond wristlets.

Blissful Blue For Day 7

Blue, especially the deeper tinges, represent the goddess of the night, thus radiating immense power. Rock this color like Dia Mirza with this silk kurta and glam it up with traditional jewellery for maximum impact.

Posh Pink For Day 8

Epitomizing hope, self-refinement and social upliftment, pink screams feminine like nothing else. Adorn this charming hue like Esha Gupta does by sporting this kurta set featuring foil prints paired with embellished dupatta. Punctuate the look with a popping lip colour and diamond earrings.

Peppy Purple For Day 9

Mythology suggests that adorning this colour on the last day of this auspicious festival fulfils your expectation and blesses one with knowledge. Taking notes from Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, embrace this hue with a contemporary lehenga and go ham on the accessories- more is more for this one!
