Ethnic dresses should be a staple in your Navratri closet

Chaitra Navratri is all about welcoming Maa Durga and celebrating the festival nine days around with great zeal and enthusiasm. It is not just about the puja and fasting, but it is a time to also showcase your fashion sense. Let’s take some inspiration from what ethnic picks you can wear during this time of the year.


The traditional sari

The sari is a traditional Indian wrap and round costume and is one of the most worn ethnic outfits by Indian women providing a sheer elegance to your look.


The royal Ghagra Choli

Lehenga choli or ghagra choli includes a long pleated flared skirt with a small blouse or choli and a beautiful dupatta that dates back to the Mughal era in India.


Lancha lehenga choli

Having a choli longer than your waist length and worn with a flared lehenga and dupatta is a more conservative style of lehenga-choli that does not expose your waist.


Dhoti-kurta style

Wearing a traditional dhoti with a long kurta and dupatta looks modern yet traditional with a sincere comfort vibe, and is often paired with Kolhapuri sandals or high heels.


The traditional salwar suit

A salwar kameez or salwar suit is a staple in every Indian girl’s wardrobe, in which girls wear flared or tight pants with a kurta and a dupatta.
