What to wear on Karwa Chauth?

Karwa Chauth Outfits:- Karwa Chauth is an age-old ritual practised and celebrated by most married women in the Northern and Western parts of India. This day of strict fasting for the well-being of the husbands, have transformed into social gatherings. While the rituals still remain the same, the fashion statement has had a whole makeover, keeping a parity with the festival.

Most women prefer wearing red or shades of red for Karwa Chauth, but trust me, the day calls for much more than that. It is a day to showcase how glamorous married Indian women can look, all dressed up is vibrant outfits, jewelleries, mangalsutra and a hint of sindoor.

Many prefer wearing Indian wedding dresses for this function, or parts of the dress, which you can mix and match with other outfits. But if you do not want to go that way and take up something new, here are some of the Indian ensembles that you can wear for Karwa Chauth:


Sarees cannot go wrong for any occasion. Be it traditional silk saree or designer sarees, each one glams up and flatters women in a unique way. A bright, single coloured, or dual shaded saree, with rich embroidery or embellishments would look stunning for Karwa Chauth. Accessorise the attire, depending upon the saree that you are wearing. You can tie up your hair and put on gajra (garland) to complete the look of a married woman on Karwa Chauth, as we would usually find in movies.


Lehengas are another such Indian outfit t-hat can glam up your look any day. The lehengas in vibrant colours, printed, embellished or embroidered with traditional or jazzy jewellery (as per the lehenga) look amazing for festive days and get-togethers. Keep your accessories and make-up muted and let the lehengas do all the talking.

Indian Salwar Suits:

If you are not very confident in Sarees or lehengas, you can definitely wear a salwar suit for the occasion. You can rather go for the lesser worn, wide-legged Palazzo Suit, Sharara Suit or an Anarkali Suit, and trust me you would look no less glamorous in any of these. Embroidered or embellished Indian suits with flared pants and matching dupattas look super stunning when accessorised rightly.
