The occasion is here – the love, the prayers and celebrations through whole day fast followed by a feast full of delightful delicacies. Well apart from gastronomic delight, we mean fashion feast and when it’s Indian traditional festival, it is nothing but sarees. The debates on Karwa Chauth shall go on, whether it’s orthodox patriarchal norm or love for your partner! But we can’t deny that it gets trending every year from ‘Solah Shringar’ to Karva Chauth legend stories to fashion tips. Well, we believe it’s choice of women to do so and equally encourage men to love, pray and also it’s about their choice to fast for lady luck of their lives. However, when it’s about styling and it’s something traditional, we cannot resist coming up ‘in-fashion stuff’. And after all, Karwa Chauth is about our favourite colour – Red and it’s allies. Check out what you can have this year along with some Karva Stories!

Because It’s Red All The Way

Go Crimson, glow as Scarlet, adorn colours of Berries and Cherries, or look intoxicating like Wine or priceless as Ruby. Blush like a Rose, do what you want! If you think red all around will be boring, then do not forget that Red is timeless and no-confusion hue. And, perhaps you haven’t experimented yet with all it’s shades from the palette.

If You Are A Newly Wed Bride

When in doubt, choose Red, and when you are a bride, you got to wear Red. That’s how Indian tradition goes. But new girls getting gypsy types want to try different things. As much as the brides are breaking stereotypes and trying new colours, we find a way between tradition and a little shift from Red. Go with conventions with a slight difference. Girl Tribe, get the Vibe - Go PINK!

Florals Are Gonna Stay

You know the floral prints or the little floral thread work is in-fashion and it’s gonna stay for a while. Grab the very Red six-yard apparels that are having flower-like designs, embroideries and prints. You can go for golden embroideries that look fabulous on Red, or any other contrast. Pretty designs carved on the saree of the similar hue would be equally appealing to the eyes of onlookers. Have a fashionable floral fiesta on Karva Chauth this year!

The Little Bohemian In You

When there’s not much choice to make, you got to impress the elderly ladies and in-laws for a day. Keep it traditional, just experiment with a new hue of blouse colours. Match and mix it with Red  to turn it from simple to significant. Pastels or neon will work better than expected. Try for yourselves!
