Say the word ‘festive’ and colours such as bright yellows and reds come to mind. But ever so often, something even as soft as a cool blue works like a charm. But then again, whoever said blue has to be mellow.
For day 3 of Navratri celebrations, experiment with deep ocean blue or even the powdery periwinkle; there are a plethora of blues that you can wear for the festive season.
And if you need help, here are some Bollywood celebrities who’ve nailed blue.
1. Sanjana Sanghi
