Navratri literally means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit – ‘nava’ meaning nine and ‘ratri’ meaning nights. Every year, it is celebrated in honour of Goddess Durga, to pay respect to her nine avatars. While the festival is usually observed by keeping a fast, there are a lot of other customs associated with the celebrations that people are not aware of.
People are encouraged to wear grey on Day 3 of Navratri for the meaning behind the colour.
According to Drikpanchang, “Grey colour represents balanced emotions and keeps the person down-to-earth. This colour is also appropriate for those who want to participate in Navratri celebrations and make a subtle style statement with this shade.”
On the third day of Navratri, take a look at these outfits donned by your favourite Bollywood celebrities for fashion inspiration:
A stylish Navratri look can be inspired by Vidya Balan. Gorgeous saree, minimal make-up and a sleek updo; the only things you need to put together for celebrations.

Comfort is priceless; step out in your comfy greys with a dash of luxury like this glittery co-ord set worn by Khushi Kapoor.
