Heartiest greetings to all the beautiful girls out there. ‘She’s beautiful’ is yet again back in style and with a lot of styles for all the lovely ladies to groove in this festive season. What to wear and what not to wear has always been the eternal problem for girls of all age group and of all size group. Be it XS or XXL, be it dusky or fair, women are always confused about what to wear. Inspired by the love for style and coloured with the colours of the greatest festival of Kolkata (Durga Pujo) we have come up with five different looks for the five days of Pujo. Done by our esteemed fashion bloggers, the looks are stylish yet easy and most importantly breezy which our bloggers kept in mind remembering the scorching heat of Kolkata. So girl, are you all ready to take the stylish tour? Don’t forget to scroll down for the first look of Sashti.
With ample smell of Pujo in the air and with loads of new clothes in the wardrobe, our blogger Shalini Sarkar suggests us to start the Pujo with a casual chic look. To take off with, the first day of Pujo is all about casuals yet never forgetting to be stylish.
She has done the look for Sashti evening with a solid black cold shoulder bodycon dress with floral detailing on the neckline. To add oomph to the look she has paired it up with black wedges and red lip colour. Finally, the beige coloured bag completes the look for Sashti. Keeping in record the trend of cold shoulders and off shoulders this year, the look is pretty amazing and needless to say total sass!
If one is not comfortable with black, one can also opt for anything in the shade of pastel or just in case a floral dress. Complementing the look, nude shade lip colours would do pretty well with wedges of the same shade.
Look details: Dress: Solid black cold shoulder bodycon dress from FabAlley (Myntra).
With one day down and one less new dress to wear, Saptami calls for doing it all a bit more than yesterday. With all the tiring pandel hoping from yesterday, why not let Saptami be the gush of fresh Western air?
Sinjini Roychoudhury has created this Western look with a dark blackish blue slit dress which she has paired up with a jet black pencil skirt. She has completed the look with black heels from Haute Curry and contrasting golden earrings from Voylla.
‘Bold and beautiful’ being the tagline of the generation, this look is surely a win-win for the Saptami night out with girlfriends.

Ethnic with a Twist:
Halfway through the most cherished days of the Bengali people that is Durga Pujo, the third day, Ashtami is the day of tradition and ethnic look. It is a pre-conceived idea among the Bong girls that Ashtami is the ultimate day to deck up and yes, of course not without a drape!
Getting to do this look myself, I was actually overwhelmed. And honestly no good reason not to be. After all it’s the love of six yards. I’ve done the look with a beige coloured handmade saree with red floral detailing all over the drape. I have paired it with a red butter silk blouse with golden sequins which matches the border of the saree. I have worn the saree with a twist for a change in the look and I have completed the look with a golden waistband and red bangles. Smoky eyes and crimson lips complemented the look.
This festive season, keeping atleast one pastel coloured saree in the wardrobe makes the colour of youth even more playful.
Look details: Handmade saree by Rekha(9804700161) Blouse from Ethnicity Waistband and Earring from Rupanjan Collections
When the decking up is almost over, coming to the last day of Pujo, Nabami is like a trump card for all the stylish divas out there. Well, ‘She’s Beautiful’ has got good news for you guys. We recommend a full on boho chic look for this Nabami.
With her unconventionally charming look, our blogger, Trisha Biswas has done a boho chic for us. She has paired a red long skirt with a plain georgette yellow shirt. She has tied the ends of her shirt in a knot to give the look a quirky feel. The junk silver neckpiece and the big black bindi on her forehead adds all the extra glamour and gets her cookie points for the look. She went for plain black heels to complete the look for Nabami.
Breaking the monotony of solid colours with junk jewelleries is one smart move that you girls can opt for in this festive season. Rocking the streets in all new boho chic avatar sounds really cool. Isn’t it girls?
Look details: Red skirt from Gerua (Myntra) Yellow shirt from Simpark Mall
With sad hearts and all smiles, Dashami is the day of making memories to part with and begin the wait for the next year to knock in. Dashami is that day of the five days with which a bong feels emotionally connected.
Keeping in mind the emotions, sentiments and traditions of the Bengali people at large, our very own gorgeous blogger Shinjini Bhowmick has done a traditional Bong look for Dashami. She has worn a plain white tant saree with red borders and red embellishments on the ‘pallu’. The saree has been worn with a red blouse and traditional golden jewelleries. She completed the look with ‘saankha’ and ‘pawla’ and ‘sindoor’ (crimson) smeared all over her face. (at large depicting the moments of the ‘sindoor khela’ ritual with which every married bong girl feels extremely connected to.)
