Nine Colors For Navratri
Navratri, as we all know, is a festival dedicated to worship Goddess Durga for nine days. Navratri is one of the major festivals we celebrate in the country, which includes events like Garba Raas and Dandiya. And garba and dandiya means getting ready in colorful dresses and accessories.
Every year, nine colors represent each day and according to that women choose their dresses. So let us see which nine colors are ruling the fashion circle this year.
Red is believed to be an auspicious color for occasions like marriages and pujas. This is the color of festivals in India and to me any festival in India is incomplete without a red dress. If you are planning to go the desi way, drape your red saree and complement it with a blouse in contrast color. You could design your blouse in a stylish way. Girls who wouldn’t mind showing a their mid portion can go for lehenga choli. Red lehenga and dupatta with a choli in contrast color like black, beige, blue, orange or pink. Ladies who don’t want to wear any heavy garment can wear a simple churidaar.
Look elegant and royal in a royal blue colored lehenga choli. If you are not comfortable in a full royal blue colored dress, team it up with hot pink, red or green. Like in a lehenga keep the skirt and dupatta royal blue and go for pink colored choli. Or if you are wearing a saree, go for a royal blue sequined saree and pair in up with a red blouse.
Shine like the sun in a sunshine yellow colored ghagra choli this navratri. This vibrant color helps in keeping negativity and evil spirits at bay. Like the above mentioned colors, you can complement yellow with different colors as well. Yellow looks good with almost all colors, but red and yellow in considered the most auspicious. But you can go for blue, black, green, silver, golden, orange, etc. Ladies who are not interested to wear any heavy garment could opt for this simple churidhar.
The color of life, green can add life to any event. Representing hope, new life and virtue, the green color is believed to bring peace, happiness and calmness into our lives. There are many shades of green you can choose from. From neon green to forest green you have many options to experiment. Green looks best when paired with other colors, like red, yellow, blue, pink and orange.
Grey or gray is an intermediate color between black and white. It is a neutral or a chromatic color, meaning literally that it is a color “without color”. But trust me, when worn in a right manner, this without color color will look as beautiful and gorgeous as other shades. You can go for a grey eye look in the season of festivals!
The color of the season. It is an important symbolic colour of Buddhism and Hinduism. In Hindu religion, saffron is believed to be an auspicious and sacred color. Orange is a vibrant combination of red and yellow so it shares some common attributes with those colors. Colors that go well with saffron is red, dark blue, dark green and hot pink.
White in a crowd of colors shines just like the moon in a sky of stars. The color white is purity, cleanliness, and innocence. The shade white goes well with almost any color, so team it with any favorite color of your choice. My favorite is red and white, black and white, hot pink and white and blue and white. You can wear a full white set too. It’s elegance lies in its simplicity.
Another favorite color of mine during festivals. This color represents compassion, nurturing and love. It belongs to the family of red, it is considered auspicious for religious occasion. Colors those look good with pink are white, red, blue, orange etc.
Blue is the favorite color of most of the people. It’s nature’s color for water and sky. It is like Maa durga has colored the things around us in blues, from oceans and seas to the vast sky. And as we know blue skies and blue water are full of positive meaning in every culture. We are, after all, living on the “blue planet. Sky blue goes well with pink, dark blue, silver and white.
Enjoy the coming nine days of Navratri with this stunning nine colors.
