Magic of Janmashtami can be felt in air much before its arrival. It is the day to celebrate birth of Lord Krishna who is believed to be the eight incarnation of Lord Vishnu. On Janmashtami, devotees offer prayers and bhog and keep a day long fast which they break on next day when Ashtami Tithi is over. At time when people are occupied in their personal and professional lives, festivals are an occasion for social gatherings. Festivals not only revive us spiritually but also refill enthusiasm in our monotonous schedule.
It is important to look your best on such days. Specially ladies and young girls who are pretty excited as well as perplexed about how to style themselves in the trendy ethnic dresses. If you are still clueless about what to wear for Janmashtami, then this guide may be helpful for you. Indian dresses altered with western fashion will bring out the desi chic in you. You just have to buy or pick up the beautiful kurti or saree from your wardrobe and go for mix and match.
