I saw a good deal of Normcore fashion this year while pandal hopping. But, I am not really sure how many of them consciously dressed up that way. Normcore fashion is where people dress up in a normal way to look same rather than stand out. Read this *article* to get an idea of what is Normcore as documented by artist Hans Eijkelboom.
But I did not capture the denim on denim and other Normcore craziness during Durga Puja for you! Here are 3 of the biggest trends I spotted this year. All my fashionable friends wore gorgeous sarees every day. Well, of course I didn't. I did wear an ethnic kurta with a beautiful printed vest on Ashtami. And I gorged on a sumptuous Italian fare at Spaghetti Kitchen that day. Also watched Haider on the first day of release and loved every bit of it.I wrapped up that awesome day by promptly falling down wearing flat shoes and tearing my beautiful red leggings on the way back.
|Printed leggings were everywhere, they were mostly paired with bum covering long tops and flats|
|the Anarkali salwar kameez was everywhere! It was a bit weird how many of these I spotted this time.|
|People really do forget all about calories during these 5 days|
And with this I wish you a Subho Bijaya and Happy Dussehra!
In association with Lifestyle International I will be highlighting the food, fashion and atmosphere of Durga Puja here on the blog.
