The festive season is here again- and this time- we’re looking eagerly at the red dress code! Karva Chauth is an undisputed favorite of married women and those seeking a lifetime connection. The auspicious ritual of fasting has been through years of glamorizing in multiple Bollywood movies and lately with active sharing of Karva Chauth looks and celebrations by the glitterati on social media.

Looking up at the sky, trying to get a glimpse of the moon, with the desire to binge on the spread of savories and delicacies – plenty of little details make the occasion so adorable! While sharing candid moments with one’s partner is priceless, the ritual of fasting and praying for his longevity is indeed a day full of merriment.
