Starting with Ganesh Chathurti, the desi calendar just has one festival after another. In general, this means that from September onward spirits are high and buoyant and closets are refilled with bright, shiny new things. Celebrities also tend to bring out their festive, desi best during this time and one that especially caught our eye was the ever-favourite Kajol. This Durga Puja she wore two drastically different saris that were both beautiful in their own way. The first look was a yellow and pink checked sari from Anavila that spelled handloom perfection. With her hair styled in a middle-parted low bun and a traditional big, red bindi, all she really needed to dress up this simple look was a pair of statement earrings and gold bangles.
And just when we thought we found a festive favourite, she stepped out in a sari that had Payal Khandwala‘s name written all over it. The jewel-toned, multi-coloured sari was paired with a simple black, sleeveless blouse to play against the many colours.
Again, she opted for a bun, statement earrings and a couple of oxidised bangles to go with this more contemporary look. Check out the open back!
