Red is a favourite of the festive season, and with good reason. There’s something undeniable about a red outfit, especially when it comes to Indian wear. With day 2 of Navratri celebrations throwing the spotlight on this brilliant colour that symbolises passion and love, it’s time to embrace the festivities in red.

Now how do you made a statement with red without going overboard – be it with your outfit or accessories such as boots, heels, earrings, a kurta or a dress.

Let’s turn to celebs who did it in style:

Aishwarya Rai is a royal treat to the eyes in a red salwar suit. The zardozi work in this outfit really makes her look stunning. Paired with a Polki jewellery set, this is how you don red on Navratri.

You don’t need to look beyond actor Madhuri Dixit’s ethnic wardrobe for outfit inspiration for Navratri celebrations. If you’re looking to add some retro vibes to your look, slip into a red polka-dotted saree like Dixit’s with some elegant dangling earrings.
