Durga pujo or “Durgotsava” celebrates the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura. Durga Pujo is celebrated in the Indian states of West Bengal, Delhi, Assam, Bihar, Jharkhand, Manipur, Odisha, Tripura, Meghalaya and 17 other states.
DoubledotA utterly giddy about this festival, has put together a few looks that you can try out.
SAPTAMI : “PRINT FIESTA”
“Pandal hopping” is an essential part of this festival! Hit the streets with your friends in casual and comfortable clothes.
Though stripes were last season, it doesn’t mean you can’t redo your style up a bit! Get bold coloured stripes out, or pick the classic monochrome stripes in various new cuts. The high-low top and the crop or cut-off tops are the new look you can give your stripes to. Pair it up with high waist denims, and some colourful converse, and you’re good to go!
Printed kimono shrugs can add a little extra colour to your look. Pair this look up with a solid coloured crop top and jeans. Wear platform heels and a chunky neckpiece to complete the look!
Checks are a huge hit any season. Wear the classic plaid shirt with a white undershirt. Pair it up with black jeans and contrasting sneakers. To complete the look, wear a watch and a fabulous pair of shades.
ASHTAMI : “LIGHT AND SHADOWS”
This the main pujo day when “Anjali” is given to Goddess Durga. For the day, wear light colour clothes but don’t go for the obvious white and red. This time team that elegant white kurti of yours with a sea-green dupatta. Complete the look by adding pretty jhumkas and bangles.
For the night, wear something that suits your festive mood. Sarees are a must for the Bengali girl! Black is always the best choice. Wear a contrast coloured blouse with it and chunky jewellery!
NABAMI : “BLING IT UP”
As the end nears of the much awaited festival, party it out with your friends. Add that extra oomph and bring along your dancing shoes!
Wear a “blingy” tribal print crop top with a black pencil skirt. Wear heels and carry a clutch!
Nothing speaks better than denims! Wear a light coloured denim shirt with black trousers, or you can do the opposite. Put on stylish and comfortable shoes so you can dance the night off!
Bring your floral skirt out. Wear it with a black crop top and nude heels. Don’t forget the blingy clutch!

DASHAMI : “DUSKY HUES”
With the end of Pujo, comes the “Shidur khela” and “Bhashan” of Goddess Durga.
Wear a salmon coloured crepe, and a designer blouse. You can also opt for different shades of pink and orange, such as rose or tangerine.
A classic red kurta with white churi pa, never fails.
Wear a rust coloured long kurta, with black churidar or palazzos.
And last but not the least, HAPPY DURGA PUJAS! ❤
