Mommies! Take a look at beautiful and unique mehndi designs to sport this Navratri and at the upcoming festive season!
Here is a reason to rejoice in style this Navratri utsav (season). I have shortlisted 18 gorgeous mehndi (henna) designs that can be sported to add glory to your festive look. For all those who don’t quite know what Navaratri is all about, let me give you a brief description of the same. This festival is dedicated to the worship of the Hindu deity Durga. The word Navaratri literally means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit (word ‘nava’ means nine and word ‘ratri’ meaning night). During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Devi are worshiped. Hindus all around the world celebrate this holy festival by fasting, dancing, with great devotion and fervor. So, obviously, looking good has to be a part of the daily routine.
Most mothers have very little time on them, that’s why I am not asking you to go out of the way to look good. You may just want to team up an Indian ethnic wear or get into an Indo-western fusion outfit with minimalist jewelry for a different (festive) look. Complete the look by getting mehndi done on hands (feet is optional). So, are you ready to be inspired by our handpicked mehndi designs?
1. Minimalist designs: Simple, less time-consuming and extremely pretty, these designs are apt for today’s new age mom who is happy with her festive look, yet wants to keep it simple and stylish.
2. Traditional designs: For all those moms who have a little extra time, can opt for a more elaborate mehndi design. The traditional motifs such as paisleys, goddess Durga’s figurine and other related designs with intricate details are best suited with a heavy, traditional attire.
3. Indo-Arabic designs: This mehndi design is trending a lot these days. The overall design is well spaced-out, looks clean yet festive. What makes this mehndi design stand out is the outline of the motifs/ overall pattern. Team it up with a Pakistani salwaar kameez or a chaniya choli. And, there you go!
So, mommies, this Navratri, pick up your dandiya sticks and go dancing with your little ones!
