Are you well-rested and recovered from your New Year parties? Because it’s time to gear up for all the festivities that follow — a prominent and popular one being Saraswati Puja. Commonly known as the Bengali Valentine’s Day, during this celebration of Goddess Saraswati, who is a symbol of knowledge and education, it is a common tradition to adorn yellow clothing.
So, before you wrack your brains about what to wear, we bring to you an all-yellow lookbook to get your yellow fits in order. Here are our picks to look like a ray of sunshine this Saraswati Puja:
With a puja at home, wearing a sari is essential. But why go for all yellow when you can add in a splash of complementary colours like white and blush pink to the mix. This Murshidabad silk sari is hand block printed with gorgeous lotus motifs that fit the bill for the occasion perfectly. Pair it with pink chandbalis and a pink blouse, and you’re all set!
Who says you can’t wear a dress during this festival? As long as it’s yellow, everything goes. This leaf green and sunshine yellow cotton dress is a great pick for this festival. Not only is it comfortable, but also has a vibe that channels spring. The wrap tie-up detail adds that extra feminine layer to the dress, while making it versatile enough to even be worn as an Anarkali kurta.
It’s no surprise that the anti-fit trend is here to stay! This comfortable aesthetic drapes gorgeously around all body types making it a great pick to add to your wardrobe this Saraswati Puja. Pair it with chunky Afghan jewellery and slip-on shoes before you step out to enjoy the day with your friends and family.
Want to go OTT this year? What better way to do that than to wear a lehenga. This Samoan Sun-coloured piece has a retro old-world charm about it with a delicate floral print. Pairing this with a Very Peri-coloured cropped blouse makes it a unique combination, which will surely make you stand out.
Easy-breezy yet so glam — this Bandhni kaftan top is a great example of sticking to the yellow memo while also adding in a touch of diva energy. The zari work on the collar gives it a festive touch, while the simplicity of the silhouette makes it an evergreen piece to style.
Simple, adorable and oh-so-pretty! This outfit is one of those no-brainer pieces that you can rewear throughout the year. The yellow floral kurta, paired with the sharara pants, makes this fit traditional yet modern. The addition of a dupatta gives you the opportunity to be all dramatic for your IG stories. So, what’s not to love?
