Makar Sankrant is a Hindu festival, which is celebrated every January, in honour of the deity Surya. It marks the first day of the sun’s journey into Makara (Capricorn) and signifies the end of the winter month and the start of longer days. During this festival, the common colour which is worn is black, since it is known to absorb heat. If you are looking for some fashion inspiration on what to wear this Sankrant, seek tips from Zee Marathi’s leading ladies Shreya Bugde, Apurva Nemlekar, Tejashri Pradhan, Dhanashri Kadgaonkar, Sarita Joshi, etc.
