Durga Puja has always been special to not only Bengalis but also to the people who have been living in the state of Bengal for any amount of time. It is also special to all those individuals who might have nestled in different parts of the world, but still carry true Bengali love and culture in their heart. A Bengali and his/her Durga Pujo are inseparable. They are bound together in a bond that can hardly be expressed by mere words.
Stepping Out In Style:
Apart from all the joy, food, pandal hopping, worship and festivities, another main element of Durga Pujo is the Durga Pujo Fashion. Women across the state are readying themselves to step out of their homes in style and looking nothing short of a Diva. Here are a bunch of looks you can try on the Pujo Evenings.
Durga Pujo Evening Fashion:
Here are our evening looks for Durga Pujo 2016 and we love every one of them. These looks are extremely easy to put together and carry. Sport these looks this Durga Pujo and turn heads, wherever you go.
While Shashti mornings are about keeping it casual, the evenings are all about looking chique and stylish. But, remember, you are still looking for something that allows unrestricted movement and is not hard to carry in the euphoria-tic Kolkata crowd.
Considering the point mentioned above Sunanda Ghosh steps into this beautiful white top from Mango and pairs it with a straight cut navy blue palazzo from Vero Moda for her Shashti evening look.
The combination is chic and emanates such a cool and comfy vibe. The addition of the pale pink sling bag and the black-white-gold chunky fashion jewellery elevates her all over look fabulously. Sunanda, you are giving us major fashion goals.
Saptami Evenings are perfect to step into your traditional Indian attires. You are looking for apparel options here that are still light on the eye, comfortable for pandal hopping and yet manage to look festive enough. With these pre-requisites serving as the guidelines, Ishita and Ananya give us two very beautiful looks for the Saptami Evening.
- Ishita’s Anarkali Kurti Look-
Ishita Choudhury settles on a simple semi-anarkali for Saptami Evening.
Though not exuberantly embroidered, the combination of the dark hues such as purple, maroon and gold, make it the perfect addition to the Saptami evening fashion scenes.
We love that golden jhumkas and the couple of bangles, Ishita has paired with her anarkali. The look is simple, minimal, and very very pretty. Ishita you are glowing.
- Ananya’s Patiala Look:
Ananya Chatterjee gives us another look to try for Saptami evening. For people who are not the biggest fans of Anarkalis, this cream and golden, sleeveless, chanderi kurti, paired with the rusty red patiala is a stunning option.
Ananya pairs her attire with jhumkas and a set of beautiful bangles. Saptami is where you keep it somewhere between dressy and simple, and Ananya puts forward just the best example.
All you need is a bit of that infective swag and you are all set. Ananya, you look great girl.
With Ashtami evening, there is no more time to play it safe. Every woman is dressed in beautiful 6 yards and dressed to entice.
Sayantika Dutta opts for this beautiful Blue and Green Gheecha Tassar and Dupian Silk blended saree for the Ashtami Evening Look.
While Ashtami Mornings are all about red and white, the evenings can be experimented with, while keeping the saree as a constant and that is exactly what has been achieved here.
Pairing the saree with a contrasting blouse is a great idea to highlight those beautiful short colours. We do love the boat neckline and that miniature slit. We are also big-big fans of Silver jewellery and love each and every addition.
With Nabami being almost the last day of the Durga Pujo fashion frenzy; it is almost criminal to hold yourself back from looking ravishing and dazzling. That is exactly the reason why, we have put together three different looks for you for the Nabami evening. We also did take “Rang De Tu Mohe Gerua” quite literally, since Orange is the new Black.
- Saheli’s Bright Orange Lehenga Saree Navratra Look-
Saheli Das looks in quite the mood to pick up a couple of Dandiyas and head off to a mad-mad Navaratri party in this look.
Nabami is also the last day of the Navaratras and Saheli decides to burn the Navaratri dance floor with not only her moves but also this very vibrant orange lehenga saree. The lehanga is made out of net and satin, which makes it light and easy to carry, while making it all the more attractive.
The broad golden border and miniature sequin work on the gher is all the bedazzling you need to pull off this look. This is exactly the reason why Saheli keeps it simple with a nice jhumka and a wrist full of bangles.
- Ankita’s Jagannath Motif Rust Orange Saree Look-
Ankita Dey goes all out and dazzles us with this beautiful rust-ish orange saree, embellished with a blue and golden zaridaar border.
We love the Jagannath Motif and also the cap sleeved blouse that she sports with the saree. Nabami evening is almost the last day of the fashion parade and you just cannot play it safe.
Look festive, look your most vibrant self on Nabami and that is exactly what Ankita does in this pic. Ankita you look downright ravishing in this look.
- Kirti’s Muted Orange-Gold Gown Look:
Kirti Mahamia, our very own, The Calcutta Girl, is all set to stun the Nabami party and pandal crowds with this beautiful orange, lacey gown.
The look is both traditional and modern and we love how she pairs the gown with minimal jewellery. That white, beaded bangle has all our attention and so does the hair do.
The lace-y layering from neck down gives another attractive element to the gown. Kirti is setting new Pujo fashion trends in her new look. You look absolutely beautiful Kirti.
Drape yourself in any or all of these looks and gift yourself a fashionable and beautiful looking Durga Puja. So, what are you waiting for, get shopping.
