Ganesh Chaturthi 2018: What Not To Wear This Festive Season. Ditch These Colours, Textures & Silhouettes

Are you already making calls to your stylists and tailors for the last minute fittings? Or you fall in the category of last minute shoppers? Like me! Well, if latter is the case, then this piece might help you in picking a stylish and comfortable wardrobe for Ganesh Utsav. As your wallet will take the hit in the next 11 days, might as well put the money in choosing the right stuff.

Here are a few examples to show you what colours, textures and silhouettes you should avoid this Ganesh Utsav. While white is one of my favourite colours too, but for festive season, I'd say let's pack it in the closet. Beige and off-whites can follow in too. 

Manushi Chhillar

For instance, Manushi's beige floral embroidered lehenga can be a very boring pick for Ganesh pandal visits. Even if you incorporate this combination into an anarkali, think about your selfies and pictures turning out to be dull. 

Kriti Kharbanda

Same is the case with Kriti Kharbanda, who has added a pop of colour with pink, yet the overall look doesn't impress much. Also, let's come out of floral embroidery. 

Warina Hussain and Yami Gautam

Warina Hussain and Yami Gautam have also opted for lighter and pastel hues but I'd rather say that their outfit's style is more of a concern than the colour. Loose anarkali's, full-sleeves, simple 'A' lines- yawn, yawn, yawn! Meanwhile, Yami pairs a sharara with a tunic- No, do not follow!

Urvashi Rautela

Now, while avoiding whites, pastels and lighter colours, one should also keep in mind that going extremely flashy is also not the best choice either.  Take a look at Urvashi Rautela- bad choice of colour, silhouette and accessories.

Keep it bright but not over the top. Choose colours like bright yellow, magenta, teal green, firozi blue and if allergic to bright colours- then choose black- the safest bet. Tone it down with nude make-up and light glossy lips. Accessorize your look by opting for silver chunky neck pieces, if not a neck piece person, then keep it classy with heavy danglers. So, I hope these tips help and you step out looking no less than a diva this Ganesh Utsav.
