Must-have accessories for this Karva Chauth
Karva Chauth is one of the most adorable Indian festivals- a pious day with a romantic feel. In present times, while cultural rituals have held significance, and women diligently fast for their partner on this day, social media is flooded with pictures of Indian women decked up like brides. But if you think that Karva Chauth is only about wearing red sarees, red lehengas, and suits with lots of Indian jewelry, then we’re here to break the stereotypes. And if you’re looking for jewelry options to wear for the festival, then scroll down; we have a comprehensive list ready!
Jewelry for Karwa Chauth:
1. Heritage Ornaments
For most of the North Indian and Rajasthani communities, it’s a big day. And as the ritual dictates, the women must unload their treasure boxes and display their metallic possessions! Going by the cultural norms, a filigree gold set or one with Kundan work, Meenakari, or similar Indian art would look great with your heavy silk sarees and embroidered lehengas.
For ladies who prefer imitation jewelry can wear commercially available gold and silver-polished ornaments. Jhumkis, chand balis, beaded necklaces, and thick bangles are what you can consider wearing if you’re planning for a head-to-toe Indian look.
2. Statement/ Edgy Jewelry
It’s always wise to keep a stock of a few statement jewelry pieces, for you can wear them with the trendiest designer-wear as well as with an inherited handloom saree. A pair of shoulder-dusters will be a good match for your off-the-shoulder indo-western gown. You can add a delicate hand-harness to complete the festive look.
If you’re wearing a plain saree with a designer blouse, then a long necklace with several chains and charms, oversized earrings, or a captivating pendant will elevate your outfit. If the blouse has a high neck, then a pair of danglers would suffice. In either case, do add a few delicate finger-rings too!
3. Casual Add-ons
The conservative ones would prefer wearing only heavy ethnic jewelry with their dressy drapes and flowing Anarkali suits, but if you’re deviating from the traditional dress code, there are plenty of accessory options that you can try out!
Tassel earrings and thread jewelry are some of the topmost trends of the season. These accessories can uplift your contemporary look, so go ahead and pair them with your trendy Kurtis and tunics. You can also carry tassels with simpler outfits like cotton palazzo suits and churidar sets.
Bohemian jewelry with feathers and trinkets is also an appealing alternative. You can mix-and-match to create a unique look and turn-up as a surprise package for a less formal Karva Chauth party!
4. Pearls are forever
No matter what you’re wearing for the day, you can conveniently style the outfit with a single-line pearl necklace. Having an unbeatable sheen, pearls carry a very sophisticated look, and with their extreme versatility, they usually complement all types of ethnic and fusion wear.
A little pearl indulgence can, infact, work wonders on your overall look. A multi-layered pearl necklace is an evergreen style statement- an accessory that never fails to impress!
