It's traditional, should match most of your outfits and has got a hint of silver finish.

    Of course, while pencil heels are a big no-no, you can manage wedges as they're comparatively much comfortable. And for short peeps like me, we don't have much option as you don't want to keep tripping over your lehenga or palazzo. It's simple, yet elegant. And more than anything doesn't burn a hole in your pocket.

    If your outfit's got lot of colours and shades, tassels and prints - complete your outfit with these shoes. While these match amazingly with your dramatic outfit, they are also good to go with denims. So, you can wear these on your casual outfits as well and ace a cool indo-western look. 

    Lastly, Always Pick A Clutch That Doubles As A Sling

    Always, always pick a sling when you're heading for Navratris. You don't want to stress of leaving your bag on random tables or corners and then constantly worrying whether it's safe or no. So, a sling, that's festive and lightweight is your safest bet and the only type of bag you should opt for. 

    I've picked a chic black one with golden embellishment on it. It can carry your basic makeup, phone and power bank.
