Dussehra Outfits for Girls: The victory of good over evil. Dussehra, also known as Vijayadashami, is a glorious festival celebrated with pomp and grandeur in many parts of India. Lord Rama defeated the ten-head monster – Ravana who abducted his wife, Sita. Lord Rama, his brother Laxmana, and Hanuman won the battle against Ravana which lasted for nearly seven days.
Huge effigies of Ravana and his two brothers Kumbhkarana and Meghanada are built which are then set on fire on the night of Dussehra (also called Ravana Dahan) to celebrate the victory of good or evil. Dussehra falls right after Navratri which makes it all the more festive and a perfectly grand ending to the splendid nine days of Dandiya and Garba.
To celebrate Dussehra, people dress up in their fineries, exchange sweets, and watch the burning of Ravana together with their families.
We are sure you will take care of the sweets department, so let us worry about the Dussehra outfits.
Tips to Remember While Dressing Up for Dussehra
- Festivals are best celebrated with delish sweets and traditional outfits, opt for something ethnic and tag us in your Dussehra pictures.
- If you don’t wish to go the super traditional route, you can also look for some classy indo-western or contemporary options such as Kurtis With Palazzo Pants.
- Keep it light. If you are planning to go watch the Ravana Dahan keep your outfit light and airy as it can get a bit crowded. Printed Gharara or cotton Anarkali suits are some great options.
- When styling that perfect outfit, try to strike the perfect balance between your outfit and the accessories. Heavily embroidered suits are best paired with small jewelry, while a traditional dress for Dussehra or a simple monochrome suit can easily be zhush-ed up with a pair of statement earrings or a heavy stack of bangles.
