The festive season isn't just about dressing up your home, but also yourself. Day 1 of Navratri celebrations begins with pristine white, symbolising peace, purity, and prayer. Nevertheless, there is still something especially festive about wearing all-white outfits. But if you find yourself in a bit of a situation, let's look at some of the more style-obsessed celebrities from Bollywood who seemed to have nailed the look. 

Here are five different ways to wear white during the auspicious day 1 of Navratri celebration.

The salwar-kameez look may be an ordinary ethnic garment but it stands out the most. Take cues from Dia Mirza wearing a crisp cotton salwar kameez in white which had teal-toned borders and minimal prints.
