"This Puja is all about blues and oranges, so make sure to stock up on these two shades. To channel an Indo-western look on Saptami, grab a pair of palazzos/linen pants, a printed shirt and a crop jacket. Go low on the accessories and you'll look like a diva. However, for the adventurous belles, an ethnic printed top with denim cut-offs should be perfect. Bold checks, plaids and stripes — in saris as well as western attire — are in vogue. Pair these saris with full-sleeved blouses for optimum effect on Ashtami. For a "carefully casual look" on Nabami, girls as well boys, can don Nehru or Modi jackets in prints or solid shades. Vibrant-hued trainers and crop jackets are also hot this season," says designer Sayantan Sarkar. The designer also adds, "Go for earthy tones for a muted look. Hobo bags are what you need to carry if you're wearing casuals. Jholas are totally out! Floral prints are also in fashion. For kids ghagras, jodhpuris and dhoti-punjabi are the in thing."
Debarun Mukherjee, another designer, says that, "Pakistani suits are very much in demand. As far as drapes are concerned, handloom saris paired with printed cholis will draw attention. In western wear, midis, crop tops with high-waisted culottes will rule."
The bottom-line is that try to experiment and add stylish touches to your looks to stand out from the crowd for the right reasons.
