7 Tips To Spice Up Your Look For Navratri 2018 Using Old Clothes

The advent of autumn brings a lot of excitement with it specially for the Hindu people.

The reason is nothing but the great festival of Navratri which goes on for nine long days.

In this festival the triumph of good is celebrated over evil.

The main significance of this festival is to honor the feminine power and thus worshiping the idol of Goddess Durga.

People generally stay awake the entire night and also keeps fasting.

Apart from the importance and rituals in this festival of Navratri, one of the most interesting things that never goes unnoticed is the dance forms.

Dandiya and garba are the major dance forms performed by everyone in this auspicious occasion.

Now when it comes down to enjoying and dancing with our family and friends the first thing that comes into our mind is getting dressed accordingly.

Especially for the girls, isn’t it?

Given the wide range of traditional collection already existing all over the market place, the new unique designs that are exclusively for grand festival of Navratri puzzles us completely.

We get mesmerized by every piece of cloth brought to us by the designers that we feel like buying all of them.

We start making list of clothes to buy way before the festival and always end up in a dilemma with the festival getting closer.

Well, for all the girls out their I think everybody plans to wear nine different dresses for each of the nine days.

Isn’t it?

Now, buying nine of those expensive designers dresses is absolutely not budget friendly.

Is it?

So why not to reuse the old clothes, spice it up a little bit and give your attire a completely new and fashionable look.

Here are few tips that you can try with your old clothes for this Navratri-

1. Metallic neck pieces

I think everyone has a solid monochrome cropped t-shirt in their wardrobe to pair it up with jeans or shorts.

Well, this time it is going to be different.

You can buy heavy neck pieces either silver(with a black t-shirt) or golden(with a white t-shirt) to go with it.

Pair it up with a long lace skirt and jhumkas to get a perfect look.

2. Long solid skirt-

If you already have a skirt and you think it’s too dull to wear it in Navratri you are completely mistaken.

All you need to do is buy a crop top with beautiful neck designs.

It will definitely cost you less than half of the price if you needed to buy an entire lehenga choli, isn’t it?

3. Dupatta

A very traditional and stylish dupatta can change your entire look from something very casual to absolutely stunning.

So, if you already have a crop top and a long skirt here goes another classy look for the festival within a pocket friendly budget.

4. Draping Styles

Since we are talking about dupatta, the various draping styles can change your outlook completely.

You can wear them with lehengas as well as anarkalis or any other kind of kurtas.

The same dupatta can be paired with both anarkali or lehenga if you know the right way to drape it.

You can always pair it up with an evening gown.

5. Saree

Pick up any saree from your wardrobe and pair it up with a designer’s blouse to give yourself  a celebrity look and be the center of attraction.

6. Palazzo

If you want to keep it simple get that solid palazzo out of your wardrobe and pair it up with a cotton kurta.

You can also pair up your crop top with dhoti pants.

Traditional jackets or long shrugs can also play a very important role on enhancing your look a little bit more.
