Navratri 2020 Colours and Fashion: It's that time of the year - Navratri! This year around, when most festivities are low key, homebound, humbling and thankful in spirit, Navratri too would translate its vibrant hues through stay-at-home decorations, outfits, savouries and sweets. The nine colours of Navratri 2020 are grey, yellow, green, orange, white, red, royal blue, pink and purple. Each of the nine days of Navratri, dedicated to the nine avatars of Goddess Durga - the Goddess of Shakti or power are connoted one colour for each day. With celebrities ushering a #NewNormal of festivities with a stay-at-home, stay chic vibe giving a worthy shout-out to homegrown labels and opting for sustainable designs, we draw inspiration from them with respect to fashion and spirit. Humble hand block prints or intricate embroidery featuring ensembles with opulent but minimal jewellery and a subtle glam game of simpler hairstyles and makeup is how the festivities have assumed form.
Apart from the religious significance, the nine days of Navratri with their vibrant festive fashion also mean oodles of fun. Swap your comfort wear for those stacked away, long-forgotten traditional dresses, sarees and neo-ethnic styles. For the lazy no-dresser, getting those high-on-trend comfort wear colour-coordinated with minimal jewellery is also a cool option to flaunt.
