Navratri Salwar Suits
Navratri Salwar Suits
The word ‘Navratri’ means nine nights. A popular Indian and Hindu festival, it is celebrated twice a year – Chaitra Navratri and Shardiya Navratri. The festival stands for a religious ritual of praying to Goddess Durga – to celebrate the power of Goddess Shakti or the bearer of the human race.
Generally, Sharadiya Navratri is celebrated with much fanfare is more popular. The events and worshipping rituals that go on for 9 days are scheduled after dusk. People celebrate the power of goodness by grooving to devotional songs and folk music, throughout the night. In the West Indian state of Gujarat, people perform their traditional dances called Garba and Dandiya.
The traditional attire for Navratri is a colorful flared lehenga, which is generally teamed with an embellished choli and a dupatta decorated with shells, tassels and pompoms. Alternatively, colorful embellished saris are also worn by many ladies. These are draped in the seedha pallu Gujarati style. However with a change in people’s culture and lifestyle, their wardrobe preferences have also changed. These days, women at Garba venues can be commonly seen in other types of ethnic wear like salwar kameez, Anarkalis and ethnic gowns. This trend is also globally popular – and can be witnessed in various parts of India – where Navratri is not just about dancing to the Garba tunes. For example, in the states of Bengal and Bihar, where this time is associated with Durga Puja – women and girls can often be seen attending Yagnas and worship rituals in trendy Palazzo Suits, Salwar Kameez and Floor Length attires. Same goes for many other Indian states like Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab and Haryana.
Irrespective of the fact that dancing is involved or not, Salwar suits for Navratri should be bright and colourful. Though the Garba evenings are held after dusk, lasting till late in the night, venues may have Navratri celebrations all through the day. Plus, most places have strong lighting. Hence, catchy and auspicious colours like bright or neon pink, shades of green and blue, yellow, orange and red are ideal for this occasion.
