One of the most-awaited festivals of India, Durga Pujo has us reaching for the best of traditional sarees for the occasion. Sure, the average group size has reduced drastically, but that has little to no effect on our enthusiasm for wearing a classic pujo look - opulent red or beige silk saree, traditional gold jewellery and a statement bindi. At-home pujas and intimate gatherings will replace public celebrations, but our hearts are set on wearing the signature lush sarees that seem like we've just raided our mother's ethnic closet.
If you too are looking forward to wearing elegant silk and organza sarees for an intimate Durga Pujo, here are some styles that are a part of our coveted Celebration Sale, which definitely serve our budgets for close-knit get-togethers.
