Deepika kept it stylish, Sonam kept it Indian and Aishwarya Rai kept it simple – no, we aren’t talking about the designer clothes these celebs wore, but the ornaments that upped their glam quotient.
Jewelry mustn’t be identified as a piece of investment or an asset, rather, it is an imperative part of the wardrobe that could be worn to occasions and social gatherings. Be it super-sized chokers, ear-cuffs, colossal cuffs, a wide variety and range are available to spice up your look. Noticed how Sonam Kapoor wowed people at the Cannes Film Festival, with her kundan-polki choker set? Or how Sonakshi Sinha cleverly sported the fashionable ear-cuffs at her film’s promotions? Too decorative, you say? How about opting for a fuss-free look like Angelina Jolie? The sexy-siren kept it simple with a pair of diamond earrings that added glitter to her monochromatic look. If you’re still trying hard to carry this season’s hottest trend, then take a look at our guide to spruce up your look:
1. Stud Earrings
The most important piece of jewelry that a woman can and must own is a pair of earrings, and nothing completes an elegant look without a pair of studs. One of the best things about studs is that they are great to go with any attire, be it a couture gown or a traditional salwar kameez. Keep it simple yet polished. As the diva Marilyn Monroe
had said, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, they surely are the most-versatile and distinct of them all, and it simply elevates your look.
2. Hoop Earrings
Have you heard of the saying – ‘’what goes around, comes around?’’, well, nothing symbolizes this better than a hoop earring. Bringing back the style statement of the ‘80s, the hoops can instantly add a touch of festivity and femininity. But remember, the size of the hoops will influence your look. So tie your hair back into a sleek ponytail, and wear those hoops – metallic, enamel or stone-studded, the choice is yours.
3. Ear Cuffs
Ear Cuffs are a fun way to jazz up your look. This ear hugging piece is sure to stand out amongst all your accessories. Whether you wear stone-studded pieces like Kajol
or a funky piece like Sonakshi,
this is one trend you’ll certainly want to explore. And the biggest advantage – you don’t need to have multiple pierced ears to sport this piece.
4. The Choker
The choker is circling its way back to fashion this season as several celebs have been spotted wearing it. The choker has the distinction of being one of the most-versatile pieces of jewelry as it holds the attention above the neckline, and frames the wearer’s visage. Always remember to try this piece of jewelry before you buy it, any instance of a sagging or an ill-fitted neck-piece is a sign that you should strictly avoid it.
5. The Necklace
Be it a colorful piece with an enamel finish, or a delicate one, studded with semi-precious stones, the necklace is undoubtedly a must-have this season. Wear it to cover a plunging neckline or to glam-up a gown, the neck piece is sure to add elegance and exuberance to your look. Choose floral neck-pieces that ooze femininity. You could also experiment with necklaces by opting for neck-pieces that don’t have a uniform design. Be sure not to dismiss them, risk it and embrace them. Take a pointer from Kendall Jenner, for example.
6. Statement Pieces
You could now choose to express your mood, tell your name and even tell the world that you’re in love by letting your jewelry do the talking. Yes, words engraved on rings, pendants and bracelets are currently the hot favorites. Even Deepika Padukone
wore a chain that was stamped with the word ‘Love’ on it. Much love to this trend!
7. Spiritual Chains
If you thought rudraksha beads, and prayer bead necklaces are only for hippies or staunchly religious folks, think again. Several international labels are slowly embracing this trend, as a result – this Indian-inspired trend is taking the Red Carpet by storm. We love the spiritual-meets-chic amalgamation; we can’t wait for Indian celebs to sport this look soon.
8. Midi Rings
If there is one accessory that is solely dedicated to your fingers, then they are the precious rings. And this season, give a new twist to the traditional ring by opting for midi rings. These delicate bands are worn directly above your knuckle, adding an old-world charm to the look.
9. Metallic Cuffs
Donning a Roberto Cavalli gown, Aishwarya Rai was spotted wearing a gold cuff that elevated her look. A cross between a wrist band and a bracelet, the metallic cuff snugly sits on your hand. We especially love them paired with something sleek. Stay away from wearing a balloon sleeve top, if you want to show off this piece of jewelry. Parineeti
and Priyanka Chopra
were also stopped wearing this metal piece at the IIFA
