Karva Chauth, a festival made popular by the Bollywood, especially the RomComs the Yash Chopra and Karan Johar film houses; yet the beauty of this world famous festival lies in the devout dedication that women show while praying for the welfare of their husbands. The women fast through the day and at night they deck up in all their fineries and wait for the celestial Moon to appear on the night sky and accept their prayers and devotion through the puja. We want you to look like queen and goddesses and thus we suggest that this year celebrate Karvachauth with the Banarasiya Regality. This guide will be all the more helpful if you are newly married and want to flaunt your karwa chauth look in a special banarasi saree in karwa chauth appropriate colors.
Karwa chauth in Banarasi saree look
Are you a newly married lady and wondering which colors are good appropriate for Karwa Chauth?
For every religious and pious occasion, our ancient culture advises the colors that denote shubh or piousness, such as yellow, red, green, orange, pink, basically the colors of fertility. And you can wear these colors without the fear of angering any elders, cultural institutions, and beliefs. Since silk is a natural fabric, these colors in silken banarasi sarees are befitting for the new brides and their blissful wedding glow.
Karwa Chauth look in a Red Banarasi Saree
For the lovely ladies out there, who want to flaunt the reds with aplomb, we have two solid inspirations ready.
Miheeka Bajaj, in our opinion, is one celebrity wife who champions wearing Banarasis like a true fashion queen. For her first honeymoon, she chose to wait for the Moon to appear in a charming red banarasi saree and adopt Bnarasiya glamour for her Karwa Chauth look. All she needed was statement choker, gold bangles, a notice-worthy nose pin and when she posed with Rana Duggubati, her smile stole our hearts.
While she opted for a blouse in a complimenting red color and a gold trim around the arms, the Bengali beauty Mouni Roy opted for a long-sleeved golden blouse with a vermillion red handloom banarasi saree, in what we can call a floral heavy motif all over. Her sindur and the traditional Bengali shankha-pola set of bangles made the look so complete that her newly married statement looked true to the cause.
Reds all the way: Karwa Chauth look in sleeveless blouse look
We at Sacred Weaves know how red brings out the beauty that a new bride oozes out in her entire confusions and excitements and learnings. This could be your first karwa chauth and you are looking to attend the afternoon Pooja in a saree, we have the perfect fix.

Red Banarasi Subtleties for the Karwa Chauth Experts
You have successfully had a decade or many decades of wedded bliss and many karwa chauths later, you are probably celebrating your silver jubilee this year.

We suggest a red uppada or konia handloom banarasi katan silk saree for you. With paisley motifs and smaller buta across the body, you need parts from your wedding jewelry, like the jhumkas and the maang tika, and the husband is swooning all over again. Blush bright dear lady, we support you!
Banarasiya Newness for Younger Karwa Chauth Looks
A katan silk is not your fabric of choice for this year, maybe you wore one of ours last year. Never mind. We have satin silk to offer! Opt for a darker tinge of red with a six yard tale of glossy satin silk banarasi saree woven in the laborious khadua technique. This is a fresh look where the color glosses and shimmers with the gold bootas and florets and you can pair it with nice chandbalis and cocktail rings. If there is a Karwa Chauth party to attend and you want to stand out, this is the perfect choice. Just wear some dewy makeup, a softly glossy red lipstick because Karwa chauth look has no place for nude lips my lady.
