It is imperative to do the festive shopping right. But we understand that busy schedules and meeting calendars wait for none. Those of you who are still desperately trying to get your act together, don’t fret. Here’s the best guide you can have to get some last minute Durga Puja shopping done. And despair not, dear men, the list includes handy tips for you too, as it does for kids’ ethnic wear as well. (Come on, how can you forget the very fashion forward and overenthusiastic kiddos?)
For the Durga in every woman
When Ma Durga comes every year in all her splendor and glory, how can we, the women, lag behind? Ladies, you are privileged to have a vast range of attires to choose from. Get your look book right and bring out the Durga in you.
We’ll begin with the quintessential saree, because let’s face it, what is Durga Puja without THE SAREE? Be it a silk kanjeevaram or a handwoven jamdani saree, you cannot get it wrong with either. There are plenty of other styles as well, be it the simple traditional look or the contemporary splash of colours.
For those looking to make a statement without the six-yard wonder, there are always anarkali and asymmetric kurtas. While an earthy and stylish anarkali like this works during the hot days, as well as after pujas are over, brighter colours like this announce your presence with a bang. If you are one of the absolute no-fuss ones, a palazzo-kurta set is the perfect choice for you in terms of comfort as well as style!
Men don’t play second fiddle anymore
Gentlemen, we promised you handy tips and you won’t be disappointed. After all, gone are the days when fashion was all about women’s clothing. This Durga Puja, head out in style and how.
Of course, men’s kurtas have been going through a variety of changes lately to keep up with contemporary fashion, and the happy result is that men are spoilt for choice when it comes to kurtas. Be it asymmetric ones in classic colours like white and black, or the printed silk kurta or kurtas in solid colours with a mandarin collar, you can have it all.
Did you think we forgot about the quintessential Nehru jackets for men? Certainly not! These defining pieces of clothing in different prints and fabrics, are making one of the most popular fashion statements in a powerful yet subtle manner!
Kids’ ethnic wear
We have finally reached the most enthusiastic section of our audience, for whom Durga Puja means new clothes, lots of food and maximum fun without the sword of parental discipline dangling over them. Kids are also one of the most vocally fashionable lot these days, so don’t make any compromises in the kids’ ethnic wear shopping list.
Where do we even begin when it comes to the little girls? Lehenga choli of course is one of the most popular picks, and there is no dearth of bright colours and brands you can pick from. However, if you thought trendy dresses and jumpsuits are for adults only, think again. The kiddie section is no less when it comes to contemporary fashion.
From kids’ ethnic wear to stellar clothing styles for men and women, there’s something in here for everybody concerned. The busy bees can have no excuses for not giving their wardrobe an update during the festive season. Pair the clothes with the right footwear and accessories like watches, jewellery and handbags, and you are ready from head to toe to make a glamorous fashion statement for Durga Puja 2019!
