Five fashion essentials for every Marathi mulgi this Gudi Padwa
Treasured traditions, delicious food, family get-togethers, sheer joy and happiness are just some of Gudi Padwa’s ingredients! What’s also admirable are the age-old traditions that have been passed on from generations to generations! Today, on Gudi Padwa, we’re giving an ode to one of the most celebrated festivals in Maharashtra and decoding the festive traditions and styles for you!
A typical Maharashtrian Nath is an ornament that is adorned by Maharashtrian women that enhances their look! Woven with pearls and studded with a pink and white stone in the middle, it is unique in design that completes the traditional look for special occasions and poojas!
Every festive look is certainly incomplete without accessories, especially bangles! One of them being the green bangles that are worn by every woman mainly married during occasions and festivals. The exquisite gold kadah (kangan) worn in between bangles adds on to the look!
Traditionally, Maharashtrian women wear a kashta or a nauvari -- a nine-yard saree tucked at the back during auspicious occasions! Trust the vibrant hues to make women look gorgeous on the occasion of Gudi Padwa!
Known as the Chandra kor bindi, this is a unique bindi that looks like an upturned crescent moon. Usually it is red and it complements a traditional look like none other!
Traditional gold jewellery
All that glitters is certainly a sign of festivities and celebration and what works better than the classic and treasured gold jewellery? Passed on from one generation to another, what we love are the intricate details and patterns on gold necklaces and earrings!
