If you spend most of your time looking for outfit inspirations during Puja, then look no further. We put together 5 simple yet camera ready looks that will surely make heads turn no matter where you go. Now, remember you don’t have to follow the tips to the T, feel free to add a personal touch to the look and make it yours –
Attire: A gorgeous mekhela sador is always a good choice, it is easy to wear and carry. Here, the combination of white and silver is subtle yet striking. To nail the chic look, team the mekhela with a silver sleeveless blouse.
Accessorize: Since the shade of the mekhela is neutral, it has to be accessorized with a statement piece that adds a dash of colour. Here the Swarovski necklace in white and ruby colour helps bring in a contrast which adds deeper dimensions to the look.
Hair & Makeup: A slick bun with natural makeup, smokey eyes and a dash of blush is all you need. The focus here should be on your lips. Go for rosy lips to look regal.
Green With Envy
Attire: Comfort is essential when you are going to be out of the house for long stretches at a time. This green kota silk saree has a light texture so it is comfortable and airy. The colour is vibrant and perfectly suits Indian skin tones. To enhance the look, pair it with a silk blouse.
Accessorize: A long hilikha mala is a good way to accessorize, however the highlight here are the earrings. Go for big and bold earrings with green gemstones to complete the look.
Hair & Makeup: Keep your hair loose and style with soft curls. The makeup should be natural, mascara and gold toned eyeshadow will help brighten the face. Try orange toned lip shades to add a bit of contrast.
Attire: Go traditional with a chanderi silk saree in bright pink with purple and gold zari work draped in the Bengali style.
Accessorize: Ethnic jewellery will perfectly compliment this look, try pairing the saree with Assamese Bena, Jhumkas, a cocktail ring and Kara all in the hues of pink.
Hair & Makeup: Tie your hair in a traditional low bun. Use kohl and mascara to enhance your eyes and add a dash of fuchsia to your lips. You can add a bindi to complete the look.
Attire: For the modern diva look, try a turquoise blue Georgette saree with zari work. The main highlight is the unique colour that is sure to turn heads.
Accessorize: All you need to compliment the saree are striking dangling earrings with white stones. The accessories should be in neutral shades so the colours in the outfit don’t clash.
Hair & Makeup: Give a modern twist to your hair with side swept curls. The makeup should be fresh with a radiant glow, smokey eyes and berry lips will help you complete the look.
Attire: Pastel colour salwars are great for day outings. A cherry yellow kurta with a pink salwar goes well with a grey and gold dupatta. The contrast of colours has to be just right to nail this look.
Accessorize: Rather than a neckpiece, pair the outfit with a japi shaped earring to really stand out.
Hair & Makeup: Keep your hair loose and keep the makeup natural. To highlight your eyes, use a vibrant blue eyeshadow. To complete the look, choose a pink shade that helps brighten the face.
