Tuesday, September 22, 2015 12:40:30 AM America/Chicago
Navratri is a nine day festival in Hindu religion dedicated to worship their deity Durga. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Devi are worshipped. It is observed as the most auspicious and unique period of devotional sadhanas and worship of Shakti.
The celebrations happen at a larger level, once in a year during the month of October. For the navratri pooja, the Devi is accessorized with ethnic navratri jewellery and sarees. Each day the Devi is dressed in different coloured sarees for the entire period of celebration. Not only the Devi, there are nine different colours of navratri clothes for you also to follow on navratri special days and it is assumed that you get special blessings from Devi if you happen to wear it.
Day 1 – Pratipada (RED):
You are surely going to enjoy the first day of Durga Puja if your favourite colour is red. Especially ethnic wears like ghagra choli, chaniya choli and designer lehengas has the highest demand when it comes to red colour. Coco Chanel had rightly said, “When in doubt always wear red!” That’s a wonderful thought and red has various colour implications in different cultures across India.
Day 2 – Dwitiya (BLUE- NAVY BLUE):
Apart from the aesthetic values, Blue colour plays a major role in fashion industry also. It is a rich colour that goes good with colours like white, silver, gold, yellow and red. Gabra dresses in blue colour will make you look traditionally awesome on the day of the festival.
Day 3 – Tritiya (YELLOW):
Begin the third day of the pooja with the brightest colour yellow. Yellow is said to be auspicious in the culture of Indians and it is recognizable at even a far distance. Navratri pooja, navratri jewellery, and navratri gifts are mostly of yellow because of the bright effect it creates. Choli’s and designer ghagras are also found in the combinations of yellow with pink yellow with red, blue and many other colours.
Day 4 – Chaturthi (GREEN):
Go Green in the fourth day of navratri, means not on an environmental perspective. We try to emphasize the fact that the fourth day of navratri goes with the colour green. But being eco-friendly is also a good deed. Green is vibrant and intrinsic colour that looks wonderful on women.
Day 5 – Panchami (GREY):
Grey may look like a boring colour, but there are fabulous designs of salwar kameez and ghahras available in the market are in shades of black and grey.
Day 6 – Sashti (ORANGE):
The colour of the day is orange which represents prosperity and success. Orange coloured ethnic dresses with fancy works on it creates a stunning look on this day of festival. If you love bright colours, orange is a wonderful option to opt for any occasion.
Day 7 – Saptami (WHITE):
This day stands for the harmonious colour white for the festival. In states like Kerala in the south, white happens to be their traditional colour. White coloured cholis, ghagras and anarkali suits with golden beads and other designer work will make you look wonderful on the festival.
Day 8 – Ashtami (PINK):
Pink, the loveable colour of girls. Usually we denote girls by the colour Pink which is the colour of our day. Pink gives a sweet and blushing look to girls especially during festival seasons. Pink ethnic wears looks good with combinations of silver or gold. And apart from the dress, matching jumkas will make you look exactly how you wanted to be on a special occasion.
Day 9 – Navami (BLUE- SKY BLUE):
You had gone green already and now it’s time to go blue. Sky blue is the colour of truth, wisdom and freedom. It is believed that Devi protects her devotees from evil on wearing blue colour. Ethnic blue sarees with beaded works gives you a grand look for the celebration.
Celebrate this navratri with Deepkala silks and make yourself look stunning.
