I hope you are enjoying the festive time of Ganesh Chaturthi as it has already reached half way. Its is one of the most famous and highly celebrated festival in Maharashtra and specially in Pune and Mumbai.
Ganesh Chaturthi is all about fancy decor, larger than life pandals, lightings,Modaks,Dhol Tasha and lot of other activities.
But what lot of us go through is,What to wear? How to dress up ? Will that be too sober? Will that be too much to flaunt?
Worry not, here I am to help you with some basic ideas.
Ganesh festival means attending prayers (arti) , Visiting friends to check out their celebration and of course pandal hopping.
It’s that time of the month where you need to ditch all your western wear outfit but you can still style it and make a traditional western look from it.
You can dress up with some nice Indian wear or a saree while visiting your friends but remember not to over do with big junky jewelry. Try to keep it simple and minimalistic, as it is Ganesh utsav and not Diwali.
Most important is while visiting different pandals in different part of the city, I would suggest :
Try a fusion or contemporary look as it is more comfortable and yet looks festive and perfect for the occasion
You can definitely add some piece of jewelry but not the glitter one or heavy studded one as you don’t wanna be a center of attraction, opt for boho style oxidized jewellery.
Try wearing a nose clip on teaming it up with a pair of earring or a simple necklace.
Pick up any of your Kurti and mix and match it up with Some denim, palazzo or long cotton skirt.
You can also add a shrug or vest to it, to give it peppy yet Indian touch
Don’t forget to carry a stole specially if you are visiting during day time, as it is sunny
Never wear heels for pandal hopping else you won’t be able to walk for longer period, as it is really a long walk.
