Nine yards of elegance – Sarees
You can never go wrong with this choice. Whatever said and done, a saree will always put you in the spotlight . What better way to shine than in a classic Red or Green karva chauth saree. A red or green saree can knock all the other karwa chauth dresses out of the way and how! This masterpiece has no comparison and thus makes for the perfect showstopper. A simple red or maroon silk saree with golden or silver work is all you need. Wear it with a heavy jewellery or some beautiful light accessories. These can be the colours for the occasion.
Relive your Wedding Day – Lehengas
If you are not the one for sarees, then we have the beautiful lehengas . Personally we believe red is the colour for karwa chauth pooja! But with lehengas you can choose shades like pink, yellow or orange or a combination of these shades.
Killer combination Anarkali salwar suits
Choose simple, printed or worked anarkali suits in subtle colours like beige, cream, gray, light pink or blue would be perfect for Sargi or Baya custom of Karva Chauth. Start the day of the festival in these minimalistic, elegant saas bahu outfits that give you comfort and luxe. Add a simple hairstyle with minimalistic accessories and juttis to finish off the look.
Slay in Indo western Karva Chauth outfits
A fusion outfit like a jacket lehenga or jacket anarkali suit could be your karwa chauth special dress on day time of the festival for the simple pooja’s and gathering. Avoid red because it’s still not time for the show stopper! You can play with dark and light colours, embroideries and prints.
