Durga Puja is one of the most awaited festivities of the country. After all, this is the time when we finally step out to meet our family, hop pandals with our friends and dress our best for an entire week.
Honestly, I wait all year long for Pujo to arrive so that I can finally wear my favourite sarees through the week. If you have already started prepping for your Pujo wardrobe then we have a quick guide for you.
I have picked a few saree options donned by our favourite Bollywood divas in the past which can be your pick this Durga Puja.
No one really celebrates the beauty of traditional weaves like Vidya Balan. Her collection of sarees has a good mix of cottons and Kanjeevarams. If you are hunting for a statement making yet easy on the body saree for your pandal hopping days, this one can be a good pick.
Vidya Balan's saree from ForSaree's Ekla Chalo collection had Rabindranath Tagore's famous poetry all over the border and Pallu. The saree read, "Jodi Tor Dak Shune Keu Na Ase Tobe Ekla Cholo Re" which means “If no one responds to your call, then go your own way alone"
How gorgeous is that? A saree like this one, I feel is evergreen. It can be worn for a formal meeting to office, match your festive mood or even days you just want to dress up as you. Agree?
Just got married or have a thing for OTT reds? This red saree worn by Dia Mirza for her wedding deserves your attention. For her intimate wedding, Dia Mirza picked this bridal red Benarasi saree from Raw Mango. Her saree had a beautiful, thick gold border. She teamed it with a simple red dupatta over her head. You can skip the dupatta on the head and carry a heavy saree like this one to the Puja.
Round off your look with gold jewellery, gajra in your hair and you are good to go!
For Durga Puja two years back, Alia Bhatt arrives in this printed red saree by Pucchika. The silk organza drape is still one of the trendiest sarees in the market and honeslty, we can't have enough of it.
If you are looking for an effortless yet stylish ensemble for upcoming puja then this can be your pick. Team it with a simple blouse, a statement choker or earrings and you are done!
Like taking the classy route when it comes to saree? Invest in an ivory saree like this one. Perfect for just any ocassion, this one is for women who have a calling for minimal yet statement clothing.
Janhvi Kapoor's saree by celebrated designer Tarun Tahiliani had a floral border in shades like purple, green, red and maroon. Her saree was teamed with a strappy floral blouse.
If you wish to, you can experiment with your jewellery with a saree like this one. Go for a gemstone choker or a layered necklace. Janhvi Kapoor opted for shoulder grazing earrings.
For her appearance in Kaun Banega Crorepati recently, Deepika Padukone carried a colourful georgette saree by Payal Khandwala. Deepika's pleated saree was teamed with a yellow high neck blouse.
A trendy, versatile saree like this one will work for you beyond the festivities too. If you are someone who likes to experiment with interesting colours and prints, a saree like this one can be your pick.
