Some of you may just want to go with the flow and sport the age-old dress code by wearing a red saree during the Karva Chauth puja.

The glint of sequins, the metallic sheen of zardozi and scintillation of rhinestones will complete your affluent festive-look.
Not everyone is a pro at draping! Even if you can tame the six yards of fabric and pleat it your way, a lehenga saree is an option worth considering for the day.
