Karwa Chauth will soon be here!
The day of fasting for your spouse, an ancient tradition followed in many parts of India, is an occasion where women all over the country dress up to look their best. It’s an old and hoary tradition, one of those marriage rituals and practices that can be quite charming, when taken in context. Many married women celebrate this festival, commencing it by donning their richest finery and praying for the continued health and prosperity of their husbands. The pooja is often a community, shared experience and makes it as much of a social custom as a personal one. The day’s fast is broken at night after sighting the moon and then worshipping the gods. Husband and wife typically eat together.
Can I match my heavy Karwa Chauth outfit with ethnic juttis?
Karwa Chauth is that day for most women when they become a bride again! That one day out of 365 when women dress to be the queen of all they survey. Naturally, you’d want each element of your attire to match that regal look!
Ethnic juttis quite steal the show here, as they look out of this world with any sort of traditional or ethnic finery! From that glittering pair of wedding juttis to the fabulous and vibrant multicolour juttis, or that exquisitely embroidered pair of golden juttis, you’re in good company when it comes to match your Karwa chauth attire. Any choice from our array of gleaming bridal sandals are a great way to go, as they make a very easy match with anything ornate you may have planned. Karwa Chauth is a day when dress cautions are thrown to the wind and being over the top is quite acceptable. No wonder, any striking marriage bridal jutti is a great buy to wear with your festive outfit. The traditional jutti, or the mojari jutti as it is often called, is a great choice for Karwa Chauth.
Will wedding juttis look good with my gold Karwa Chauth saree?
For centuries, empresses and ladies from aristocratic families, wore handcrafted, bespoke ethnic juttis with each outfit they wore. The traditional jutti as worn across the ages, is meant to be worn with all kinds of ethnic Indian attire and, as such, is a perfect match with your gold Karwa Chauth saree. So are any ornate wedding juttis that you like, as Karwa Chauth is a festival primarily associated with weddings and brides.
Our fabulous repertoire of wedding juttis ranges from the traditional crimsons, scarlets and pinks, to rich greens and blacks, as well as the subtle ivories and greys. Then, of course, we have the metallic specials that focus more on the precious metals look, namely those with gold and silver predominantly in the pattern and design. Further, we have delicate pastels that are elegantly adorned with shimmering faux pearls that add a sophisticated touch to the juttis, mules or sandals that they adorn.
What’s the best festive footwear?
Festive footwear by its very definition is a bit out of the regular range of footwear that you would use in daily life. By implication, it is expected to feature a bit more glitter, a tad more gloss and overall shine in its appearance. Or just be a bit more luxurious in terms of its craftsmanship, detailing and the materials used. Our range of eclectic NEEDLEDUST footwear cover all these aspects in the wide range of juttis, embroidered mules, classic and timeless sandal designs that we offer.
