Did you know that specific colours are associated with each of the nine days of Navratri? Yes, that’s right! So whether it is going to work or attending dandiya night, play dress up with the nine colours of Navratri. We have curated a list of some of the best options for you!
White is a synonym for purity and innocence. On this day, Goddess Brahmacharini is worshipped who stands for love and loyalty. This white chaniya choli is perfect to help you kickstart your Navratri mode. Adding colour to the otherwise monotone look, the outfit comes with a colourful bandhani-style dupatta and a trendy belt that’ll hold your dupatta in place. So, dance around without a worry girl!
Red is one of the most powerful of the nine colours of Navratri. It is the colour of Goddess Kali and it denotes strength, power, and fierceness. This floral red salwar suit is perfect for working women who wanna keep their Navratri mode on even at work. The straight pants and the lightweight dupatta makes this outfit an all-rounder. Accessorise it with trendy oxidised jewellery and cute juttis for a more classic vibe.
One of the favourite among the nine colours of Navratri is royal blue. This colour is used to celebrate Goddess Kushmanda and it signifies health, wealth and strength. If you don’t wanna wear a lehenga or a boring kurta, then this royal blue Anarkali set is just what you need! Spruce up the ensemble with jhumkas and a statement bracelet.
Yellow is the colour of learning and knowledge. It is the colour of Goddess Skandmata and is one of the Navratri colours that is embraced fervently during this festival. This yellow-printed kurta set will allow you to go all out with your accessories. Although it looks extremely simple, its beauty lies in its subtlety. Style it with statement earrings and carry an elaborate potli bag to complete the look.
Green symbolises new beginnings, growth, and fertility. It is the colour of mother nature and Goddess Katyayani. We all know that shararas are much in trend at the moment and TBH, we don’t think they’re going out of style anytime soon. The beauty of a sharara is that it looks good on everyone, irrespective of your style or body type. This green sharara set is perfect for the garba night.
Grey is the colour of Goddess Kalaratri and it depicts sobriety and elegance. Apart from your usual lehengas and salwar suits, you can also don a beautiful saree on one of the Navratri days. This grey cotton saree is decked in chikankari work and we love how a kamarband adds a contemporary look to it.
In the list of Navratri colours, orange is a very special one. Used to celebrate Goddess Shailputri, it is associated with warmth, fire and energy. This floral orange lehenga crafted from pure organza and decked in zari and sequins embroidery work is bound to make heads turn and how! Style it with statement earrings and bangles for a stellar look that’ll give you insta-worthy clicks in one go.
Peacock green is used to celebrate Goddess Siddhidhatri. Siddhi means supernatural power and dhatri means the giver. She is said to bless humans with spiritual powers. This peacock green Anarkali kurti may look simple, but when styled right, it has the potential to make quite a fashion statement. Amp up your attire with oxidised jhumkas, bangles, and a maangtikka.
Pink is one of the Navratri colours used to celebrate Goddess Mahagauri and it signifies peace and intelligence. This bandhani-style rani pink lehenga is perf for dandiya nights, and can also be worn during Diwali and the wedding season. Too pretty, isn’t it?!
This Navratri, get into the festive mode and enjoy all nine days dressed in the auspicious colours of the festival. It’s your time to shine, girl!
