The attire is ready; makeup checklist ticked twice. Accessories have all been lined up a night before. Navratri season is here! And so has the entire conundrum around what to wear and what not wear for the Navratri dandiya raas night.

Navratri and related Durga Puja festivals are the best time to show off what you are capable of looking. The best part in this is that you can – be gaudy, shine and spread cheers all around without any compromises. The festive season is such that your chirpiness will get you accolades. And that’s why, your clothes, makeup, jewelry body language should match the festive spirit.

Choosing the right colors

Well, this season, as we said is about spreading happiness and being merry, the colors that we recommend are burnt orange, yellow ochre, indigo blue, parrot green, rose gold, deep maroon and soft pinks.

Choosing the right jewelry

During the dandiya night, traditional metal or tribal jewelry – neck pieces, armbands, waistbands, mang tika with thick bangles or chooris made of glass are commonly worn by ladies. However, if you wish to keep your look comfortable yet attractive then go minimal on jewelry, don’t burden yourself with stuff as you would be required to move and shake your leg, pretty much.

Choosing the right makeup

We have plenty of makeup trends going on, around this year. From falsies to matte lipsticks and glittery eyeshadows to glass makeup look, there is no dearth of trending beauty styles. If you want to shine during this Navaratri then choose false lashes, go for eye heavy makeup and soft lipsticks in matte or crème.

Choosing the right outfits

Though Navaratri gives out a clear call on wearing the traditional chaniya choli. Howeverif you wish to update your attire then go for brocade lehengas with mix and match theme colors. Harem pants and dhoti pants are also grabbing popularity among the youth. Sarees are a good option for the pujas, however, for the dandiya night, choosing the lehenga or even the skirt with a traditional crop top is recommended. You can also don heavy embroidered jackets along with the traditional choli to make a unique statement.

Choosing the right body language/style

Your style mantra during this festive season should not be too loud or unnecessarily bold. Keep the body language chirpy yet focussed on dancing the night away on garba tunes. Since, this is the most awaited festive occasion a friendly, open-minded and flexible body language can make you the diva of the night.
