My blog has been missing some glitter and shine for a while.
Women in India, as elsewhere, love jewelry. Today though, I am not going to talk about traditional Indian jewelry but more contemporary options that can easily translate between Indian and Western wear (as Western (ized) Jackets in my previous post here).With a little attention while building up your jewelry / accessories collection, it is a lot easier to find pieces that can be paired with different outfits. Here are some tips to help you along the way:
- A multi strand kundan necklace and a strand of pearls (best ones are whites) are your best bet with a cocktail dress, saree or salwaar kameez.
- I feel that the traditional gold accessories are somewhat limited when it comes to this, however a solid gold chain (multi or single strand) with a jazzy pendant can make a very chic impression. Usually white or polished gold works a little better than yellow gold.
- Rings and bracelets are something that you can experiment with a lot. While shopping for them try to pick the big and bold ones with modernistic designs.
These accessories are best matched with plain and well-cut silhouette dresses. Pick a color that compliments your skin tone and highlights your jewelry the best. My favorite ones are black and fuchsia. However, if you want to get experimental – deep greens and royal blues will also look gorgeous.
