The month of October is one that is filled with excitement and festivities every year. Festivals like Diwali, Navratri, Durga Puja and others often fall in or around this time of year. But there's another festival that usually falls around this time as well; a festival that is celebrated by many married women across India - Karva Chauth. Karva Chauth is a festival that falls on the fourth day after the full moon in the Hindu lunisolar calendar month of Kartik. Kartik is a month in the Hindu calendar that typically overlaps October and November. Typically, Karva Chauth is a festival in which married women fast from sunrise to moonrise, praying for the safety and long lives of their husbands.
While Karva Chauth might hold a lot of meaning and sentiment for many married couples around India, it is also a day that women especially like to dress up while breaking their fasts. Karva Chauth is definitely a festival that warrants new outfits for all the women keeping fasts. That's why we've put together a few outfits that we think you might enjoy wearing this Karva Chauth.
