SN: How do you incorporate traditional elements into your Navratri outfits while still staying on-trend?

Vidhi: I prefer to choose classic silhouettes with a modern twist. For example, instead of a traditional chaniya choli, you could opt for a flared skirt with a crop top or a lehenga with a basic tank top and drape a traditional dupatta finishing the look!  I like to experiment with traditional fabrics and prints and lastly putting the entire thing together with loads and loads of junk jewellery 

SN: Can you share your go-to colour combinations or styles that you feel are perfect for Navratri celebrations?

Vidh: I feel Navratri is all about Blings and Colours, there is a never ending scope to combine different colour combinations and i really like to explore that! Having said that, this season, I am really inclined towards the combination of Blue with Yellow!

Coming to a style which I feel is perfect for Navratri, is anything which has a touch of boho in it! That never goes wrong!

Vidhi Shah shares Navratri fashion tips

SN: How do you balance comfort and style when selecting outfits for the energetic and vibrant Navratri dances?

Vidhi: I always prefer to choose lightweight and breathable fabrics. We tend to sweat a lot, so it’s important to choose fabrics that will keep me cool and comfortable. Cotton, linen, and rayon are all good choices. I make sure I need to be able to move freely and comfortably when I am dancing, so I avoid clothing that is too tight or restrictive.

SN: Are there specific fabrics or textures that you find work well for Navratri clothing?

Vidhi: Fabrics such as Cotton, Linen, Rayon, Chiffon, Georgette works really well and are preferably light in weight. I like to add different textures and works to my look, from bandhani, leheriya, patoda to thread, mirror, zari work. I also like to use embellishments, such as embroidery, patch work, shell work, sequins, and beads, to add a touch of glamour to my outfits.

SN: Do you have any tips for mixing and matching different pieces to create versatile Navratri looks?

Vidhi: Start with a basic piece. This could be a simple kurta, a plain lehenga, or a basic saree. Once you have a basic piece, you can start to add other pieces to create different looks.

Play with colour and texture. Mix and match different colours and textures to create unique and eye-catching looks.

Accessorise wisely. The right accessories can really elevate your look. Try adding a statement necklace, a pair of earrings, or a headband to your outfit. You could also add a scarf or dupatta to your outfit.
