Pretty ladies we probably know your pressure and confusion of going traditional during this festival

Durga Pujo is around the corner, a time when many will be standing at pandal queues all morning and night to pay respects to Goddess Durga or popularly called Ma Durga.
As a tradition, most of the people  wear new clothes which also meant getting clothes from all your relatives as gifts during Durga Pujo.
Pretty ladies we probably know your pressure and confusion of going traditional during this festival.
The task of building an entirely new wardrobe every festive season is a bit more task.
But fear not; we have experts that will make you festive ready and you may look like a Bong-diva-gone-regal all along, from Maha Saptami all the way to Vijayadashami.
For your Maha Saptami, a favourite of all celebrities, an anarkali suit is just what you need to shine.
The style staple from this Durga Pujo season will help you begin the festivities on a tasteful note.
You can choose between a vibrant anarkali in citric colours or bright reds and pinks or soothing pastel colours to reflect the festive mood and also for a modest but rich look.
You can complete the look with simple make up by adding some kohl to your eyes and keeps the lips nude and curling up the locks or tie it in a loose side bun.
And for jewellery, pair the look with some antique dangers and hand cuff (Kara).
On the Maha ashtami and Maha Navami, this auspicious day look is incomplete without a saree. You can drape a organza saree which is much in the trend with a matching cutwork or tissue blouse as you take part in the auspicious day.
Floral embroidered and embellished woek are the order of the day. Pair the saree with clean makeup  just some blush, gloss and classic wink liner.
And, to complete the look with thick bangles, choker and stud earrings will complete the look.
While Vijayadashami is the last day of the festival and also to wear the best traditional outfit, but don't shy away from giving it a little contemporary touch.
So select an exciting saree in red, crimson, scarlet, mustard, mint green or any other bright colours to look glamorous.
Pair the saree with a contrast blouse and take the attire a mark higher with danglers or hoops.
Adding few bright bangles in one hand and wear a chunky watch in the other and also a bright pop of colour on your lips and kohl-rim your eyes- the heavier the better.
To complete your beautiful look, keep hair open and side-swept with some waves if you like.
