- by Sumana Bhattacharya
Saraswati Puja is one of the gorgeous occasions in Bengal where a budding love story comes to a warm conclusion. A day when you are far away from the books, meet new people, a day for the singles, and finally, the only day when you find the teenagers in ethnic Bengali dresses – Saree and Punjabi.
Saraswati Puja is above those “Anjali” and “Prasad” – it is the perfect day to celebrate your love of life. Hence, people call it as Bengali’s own Valentine Day. Everyone, almost everyone you look around wants to be the perfect. Whether it is a boy wearing yellow cotton Punjabi or a young girl, trying out her mother’s yellow bordered Tant Saree.
This boutique owner of IndyVogue also has innumerable memories of Saraswati Puja. However, let me keep those stories for another day. As all women will be trying out a saree over other dress material, thus I will like to deck them up with the best saree style guide to rock the Saraswati Puja 2018.
Will you like to take a ride with me? Let me begin.
WHAT TO WEAR
Saraswati Puja, in general, is celebrated in the spring. The festival has warmth in itself. The weather turns pleasant, the cold winds turn mild and above all the fragrance of spring flowers make the ambiance more soothing and healing. So choosing the colors of your apparel is a big thing. Spring denotes vibrant colors. As you look around you will find flowers bloom and try to décor nature. It is so young, lively and refreshing all around.
However, we go for yellow as our first preference, but you can also choose orange, green, red and white. We have a good Saraswati puja saree collection this year with all these vibrant colors – so the choice is yours.
TYPE OF SAREES TO CHOOSE
As you will like to dress up perfectly to impress your beau – choice of the material is also a huge factor. There are huge choices but predominantly it is the tant, cotton, dhakai, and tussar, which is sure to woe many hearts. Pick something light to wear on this eve. You can also pick a range of Kantha stitch, batik or pure handlooms.
HOW TO WEAR A SAREE DIFFERENTLY IN SARASWATI PUJA
