Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the biggest festivals that the country celebrates with a vigor and an enthusiasm like nothing else! It’s a festival that has everyone indulge in delicious regional delights, dance till feet hurt, and wear the prettiest and the most exuberant attires!
And so, here we have a few fashion takeaways for you, for the coming Ganesh Utsav, so that you can look every bit the show stealer that you already are!
Nine yards of pure wondrous beauty
Saree is probably the first thing that hits the mind when you think of India ethnic festive wear, and Ganesh Chaturthi stands no exception to that. Whichever style you might want to drape this nine yards of wonder in, you will only look beautiful in the end.
But it is your Banarasi saree or a Kanchipuram silk saree, draped in any typical regional style, which includes the beautiful Marathi style, that will charm everyone’s socks off this festive season! To get the perfect diva look, go for a sweetheart neckline in your blouse; and don’t worry about choosing the right fabric, for cotton, pure silk, and such will all do perfectly great.
Let Anarkalis cast their inevitable charm
Another great way to welcome Lord Ganesha is by wearing intricately designed Anarkalis, especially the ones that come with ornate borders. You could choose a flared Anarkali, with a neckline of your choice, and go for a look that makes a subtle touch of modernity go well with your traditional ensemble. Colors like fuchsia and green, combinations like maroon with gold, and collared kurtis in general, are quite in vogue these days.
Men could go all traditional!
When it comes to fashion, one can especially not leave the men behind! A vibrant kutta paired with an apt patiala and a dupatta on a shoulder is what would complete your traditional look in a jiffy! For a more machin look though, you could try opting for a sherwani with a standout collar and padded shoulders.
Or, a smart and classy look could do the trick!
A rather smart look would have you wearing a pair of well fitting trousers with a cool blazer on top. Though in retrospect, it might be better suited to fashion-conscious boys rather than fashionable men. For a classy look, you could give a Nehru jacket a try, especially if you have a pair of Jodhpur pants residing somewhere in your closet. Make your outfit into a cool fusion style statement by throwing in a silk stole as well!
