Durga Puja, one of the most celebrated festivals in West Bengal, is just around the corner, and the preparations are in full swing. This year, the weather forecast promises a cool and pleasant atmosphere, making it easier for people to flaunt their fashion sense during the festivities.
Traditional attire still holds significance during Puja, and the saree remains the must-have clothing choice for this occasion. Despite the busy work schedules, ‘Pujo-lovers’ make an effort to dress up in new and unique styles for all four days of the puja.
On Shashti, the first day of Puja, when many have work and office commitments, a lighter outfit like salwar suits, palazzos, or kurtis is a practical choice. As the puja progresses, fashion enthusiasts eagerly await Navami, when they can make a grand entrance in Indo-Western attire.
This year, the trend is leaning towards edgy yet elegant "Co-ord"—outfits with a modern twist, often featuring layered tops paired with pencil pants or trousers.
On Shashti afternoon, it's time to adorn the traditional saree, taking into consideration the weather, potential rain, and the need for an umbrella. Handloom sarees are popular choices, and accessorizing with a matching handloom stole is a subtle yet elegant touch.
Ashtami Night allows for experimenting with subtle colors and prints. A beige saree paired with a printed beige and golden blouse can create a stunning look for Navami. For those opting for a dress on Navami, a card dress is a trendy option. High heels are not required; comfortable flats are the way to go.
When it comes to footwear, it's best to choose one ethnic and one Western pair that can complement different outfits. The handloom trend remains timeless, with silk sarees, especially Bengal silk, being in high demand this year.
Durga Puja 2023 promises to be a blend of tradition and fashion, with people planning their outfits meticulously to stand out during the four-day celebration. Handloom sarees, Indo-Western fusion, and stylish Co-ord sets are all making their mark in this year's Puja fashion scene, ensuring that everyone looks their best while honoring the goddess.
So, get ready to embrace tradition with a fashionable twist this Durga Puja as you step out in style to celebrate this grand festival.
