Next, that comes into the picture is the one that’s already been indicated in tip #1. Heavily embroidered or embellished dupatta. I’m sure this one is definitely gonna be there in your closet. Just any embroidered or and embellished dupatta will act as one of the best dandiya dress ideas for you at the moment. How?

You just have to pair something relatable with your dupatta and you’re ready to hit your garba dance. Don’t forget to add a bindi, and a little bit of jewelry and makeup.
Embroidered Jacket. There are various ethnic and Jaipuri jackets that are available out there if you don’t have one already. Honestly, even I’m running out of this one right now, but I’m gonna grab one soon. This is a savior for the last moment. You can use it so many times and at so many occasions, just like you can use at your garba party. Pair it with a combination of tank top or spaghetti and palazzo, straight or dhoti pants. Choose the color and the pattern wisely.
Printed skirt. A printed skirt is a great option if you’re going for a Navratri event. It can give you a literal Gujarati feel. Ghagra choli is anyways the perfect attire for the day and a printed skirt can make you achieve that. Wear a suitable top with your printed skirt and tag some jewelry and dupatta with it which is more towards the typical ghagra choli style. If you don’t want the ordinary ghagra choli style, you can wear it like a dress and pair it with a jacket to stay on with the modern look, do make sure to add some jewelry to keep it ethnic.
So by now, you must have figured the importance of jewelry in any ethnic attire. So with your Navratri outfit. Even if you don’t have any ethnic wear in your closet, you can definitely improvise the available pieces by adding some junk or oxidized jewelry to it. Wear your usual kurta with a palazzo pant or a tank top with dhoti pants, AND add some oxidized jewelry like, earrings, neckpiece and the most important one that’s gonna act as a savior is a Kamarband or Metal belt. These accessories are gonna help you give a more ethnic look.
These dandiya dress ideas are certainly gonna save you at the last moment. Just use any of these above-mentioned tips and get rid of all the confusion that you would have gone through otherwise.
