Babe On A Budget: Chic Ganesh Chaturthi Outfit Under Rs 4000
Come September and the festive season begins. Invites to pujas, parties and weddings start pouring in back to back. Starting with Ganesh Chaturthi, onto Durga Pooja, Navaratri, Diwali, and of course, everyone decides to get engaged and married at the same time. All these celebrations call for pulling out your most festive pieces! Now being a millennial Indian girl, we only reach out for our desi clothes on an occasion, or when we are feeling extra fancy ’cause, let’s face it, handling that dupatta every single day ain’t easy!
Especially when it comes to festive occasions like Ganesh Puja, we often have to walk that fine line between dressy and OTT shaadi-ready! What you need is a look that is effortlessly stylish, true to your style aesthetic, and on a budget. Easier said than done.
Hence, we’ve taken up this enormous task and curated an entire outfit from head-to-toe that is chic and dressy, yet young, fresh and festive! What’s even better is that you can snag this look on a budget! This entire look is under Rs.4000, so you don’t have to break the bank. Plus, they’re all statement pieces that you can add to style any other outfit too.
This kurta and palazzo set is the right combo of subtle and glam. The serene powder blue colour is perfect for day events, while the gold embellishments along with an update in makeup and footwear can dress it up for the night. The relaxed fit of this outfit is also very flattering, so you can gorge on all the modaks you want. The pleated hem on the sleeve and the asymmetrical hem of the kurta give that additional edge to your outfit. All this priced at Rs.1,499 is a total steal.
Now that we have our outfit sorted, let’s get down to the styling! Instead of stacking bangles or bracelets, go with this handcuff. The gold looks festive and makes it multi-purpose, while the accents of blue in this cuff will match your outfit. Give the outfit a modern twist by pairing it with abstract gold, fish-hook wire earrings. A versatile potli bag in a neutral hue will be the cutest little addition to this outfit. This gold-toned brocade and silk potli with latkans, is chic and roomy enough to carry all your essentials. Also, this versatile bag will serve you all through the festive season.
A pair of heels can elevate any outfit. During the festive season, a pair of fuss-free, mid-height heels should work best. Also, you’ve got to make sure your choice of footwear is easy to slide in and out of, for whenever you may have to take your shoes off during a puja. This pair of rose gold-toned sandals, priced at just Rs.868 will be the right choice with this look. They go with your look, they are understated, and they give you height.
