Gudi Padwa is just around the corner and all the Marathi mulgis will be putting their best fashion foot forward. But Marathi or not; ladies, we have a list of dresses that you can wear on the occasion and look drool-worthy. Here we have compiled some of the best traditional outfits that you can sport this festive season. Nothing can beat a nauvari saree but pulling off the look is not that easy. The intricate folds of the nauvari saree can make it complicated. To avoid all this hassle, one can opt for a stitched Nauvari, which is just like a salwar. One can pull the fantastic look without having to worry as the drape doesn’t come off that easily. But one has to make sure that one chooses the right fabric. Opt for a pure silk or a soft cotton fabric so that you do not look plump. As for the accessories, go for traditional Maharashtrian ornaments, such as the Nath, Thushi, Kolhapuri saaj, mohanmal, bormal, chapalahaar, bugdi, kaan, vaki, putalyachi maal, ranihaar, lakshmihaar. Phew, the list is endless. (Also Read: Top 8 Authentic Delicacies You Should Give A Try On This Gudi Padwa)
Apart from the traditional nauvari, one can also opt for a Paithani. One can accessorise it with contemporary jewellery and a chic blouse. Your make-up should not be loud and screaming. Keep it subtle by highlighting the eyes. Use kajal and eye-liner for defining your eyes. Avoid glossy and cakey make-up as the Marathi attires are bold and bright in itself.
