Navaratri or navratra, the Hindu festival that spans nine nights is here and it’s time to bow down in front of Goddess Durga and her nine avatars. The festival centres around these nine goddesses and each day has its own significance, symbolised by a colour. The second day of this auspicious festival is dedicated to Maa Brahmacharini and she is symbolised with the colour orange, which implies the aura and brightness of positivity and enlightenment. Interestingly, orange is also the colour that Goddess Brahmacharini is said to wear. Women across the country will celebrate the day dressed in orange refinery and we thought of taking some inspiration from Bollywood divas to get you orange ethnic wear ideas for this special day of navratri.
If you want to pray to Maa in a sari, then Sara’s orange-yellow bandhini sari could be your perfect fit. You can team up an orange sari with a dark pink blouse, just like the actress and it’ll provide you with the perfect festive contrast look.
You can try an orange salwar kameez look like actress Deepika Padukone. Team it with some jhumkas and you will be festive ready!
If you love lehengas, then try an orange silk lehenga like the one worn by actress Kiara Advani. She teamed it up with an off shoulder blouse and, you could mix and match the orange skirt with your favourite choli.
