Every year the festive season, starting with Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with great pomp and show like every other festival that we Indians celebrate. This year also every Indian must be waiting for Ganesh puja because of the happiness it brings to every individual. Are you wondering what to wear on Ganesh Chaturthi this year? Don’t worry if you haven’t made your plans yet.

But, First Things First…

Let’s start from the basics. Make sure you choose the correct fabric for yourself before making your outfit. Keeping the weather in mind, it is better to choose fabrics like cotton crepe, georgette and silk. Light fabrics with bright and floral patterns will give you an exquisite look.

Here are some outfits ideas for what to wear on Ganesh Chaturthi this year

How about moving on from just a traditional saree to something which is more millennial and more trendy. Go on and look for some ideas:

Floor Length Dresses

For Indian fashion, floor-length dresses have started coming into fashion, again. It had vanished for a few decades but millennials can change any trend they want to. So we have got it back and with a bang this time. There are different patterns and styles of a floor-length dress. The best part about it is that you can wear it as a dress, a suit with a dupatta or keep it open if it is a buttoned dress and wear shorts and a tank top inside it.

Match it with a piece of ethnic jewellery and you are good to go.

Rugged Jeans and Open Front Kurta With Crop Top

The best part about rugged jeans is that pair it with anything and it will make the look, cool. Here you can pair it with an open front kurta and make your way to the crowd. Be prepared to catch a lot of attention.

Crop Top And Sarees

If you are amazed at this point, there is more to come. How about switching a saree blouse to crop top? It will make you look different from the crowd and you won’t be uncomfortable because of the blouse as well. Now if you wear sneakers beneath the saree, I won’t judge you!

Long Skirt And Straight Kurta

Try pairing a long skirt and a straight kurta with ethnic jewellery. This look is different and trendy these days. If you have enough clothes in your closet, you might like to pair a solid kurta with a floral multicoloured skit. Trust me, that always works.

Tank Top, Salwar and Shrug

Please don’t think I am weird. But this is a very good combination and I have tried it myself. A nice tank top with a good looking salwar can be semi-covered by a shrug and this look is perfect for you to carry for an occasion.

A heavy statement neckpiece will add a bit of magic to your attire.

Crop Top And Lehanga

Get over your desi lehenga and pair your lehenga bottom with a crop top. The entire attire will light up. Junk jewellery is always an option to light make your attire look all fancy.

Blouse And Palazzo

Don’t worry about your lehenga blouses and saree blouses that are replaced by the tank top. You can use them with a palazzo or a straight pant and put a shrug over it. It will give you a raw look and yet look very cool.

Crop Top And A Dhoti
