Indian festivals call out for bright and sparkly colours especially when it's Navratri time. It is best suggested to go for vivid hues since they signify joy and excitement. And, what could be a better way than this to welcome the festival! So don't even think of wearing dull and boring colours and tune in your mood for all shades of yellow, blues and reds!

High-heels are a big NO!

The festival is all about dancing and moving here and there and with heels that is just not possible. Wearing those fancy high heels can be a big failure on dandiya nights! To enjoy to the fullest you would need a comfy pair of flats like kohlapuris or juttis to dance your night away with no painful shoe bites. To keep it edgy and traditional you can wear a pair of payal which will enhance your look even more.

Keep the fabric easy-breezy

We feel being comfortable is fashion and keeping that in mind it is always advised to wear a breathable fabric like silk or cotton which makes you look beautiful and comfortable both. Wearing super heavy ghagra-cholis or ethnic wear can ruin your event completely. However, lehenga's would be your first preference but they are not the only option. This is the time you can flaunt your traditional wear with a twist and create quirky combos! Like wearing a plain bralette with long skirt and denim jacket or a wearing a floor-length kurta with a printed cape and a rope belt can add the right amount of Indo-western feel to your look.

Pin it up

With all the dancing and rushing who wants a wardrobe malfunction? And that is perhaps the biggest issue you can face during dandiya nights. All you have to do to save yourself is pin the dupatta or all the required places with good quality pins before you step out of your house. Make sure they don't ruin your clothes and you have pinned your attire well. No matter what you are wearing lehenga or saree you can then groove freely on all the beats!


Don't go heavy on the makeup

With all the hush-hush it is also difficult to manage a heavy layer of cake on your face. You will definitely sweat while making your sexy moves and you yourself will be the sole reason for destroying all the effort. Don't let that nightmare happen! Choose waterproof makeup and go light with the base and eyes.

Tie those tresses

Don't even think of leaving your long waves open on dandiya nights. It is quite impossible to manage your hair with all the dancing and sweating. Opt for a high bun or fancy braids instead to avoid messy hair.

Go heavy on accessories

This step can make all the difference in your look and make you look fab-a-dab! Go for jewellery that looks heavy on the outside and is still light and comfortable to wear. We all are aware of the fact that traditional Indian apparel shouts for accessories but remember to keep all the things wearable and practical. Bring out all your chokers, jhumkis and maang tikkas and get ready to rock & roll!
