If you think traditional jewelry locked up in your mother’s drawer is only for Diwali or the wedding season, you probably need to think again! Pairing traditional jewelry with western outfits is slowly becoming a style statement. In fact, Bollywood has shown us how. We have often witnessed our favorite B-town actresses like Deepika Padukone , Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor experimenting with this trend by choosing to pair different styles of traditional jewelry with their outfits.
Wish to try it? Sure, you could go ahead! In order to help you, we have come up with a few styling possibilities :
There is no denying that a kundan necklace looks stunning when paired with traditional outfits. However, it can look equally gorgeous with a long gown or even a knee length dress. Keep in mind that wearing a kundan necklace with an off-shoulder dress, makes the necklace the focus of attention. Ensure you do not over-do your look with earrings.
In the past, you may have been advised against pairing anklets with your jeans. However, an anklet can look just as good with jeans or shorts, as it would with an ethnic attire. Go on, try it!
The maangtika paired with dresses? Yes you heard that right! A shimmery dress and a maangtika work just right. There are a variety of maangtikas to choose from – single tiers to jhoomars!
Usually worn over a saree or lehenga, a kamarband can also be worn over a pair of jeans or a gown. Note : Going for too many colors on your gown is a big NO. Going for solid colours creates a well-balanced look.
Even the simplest of outfits can be enhanced with a pair of earrings. Traditional earrings are often paired with ethnic clothing, but they can also be conveniently worn with western outfits like a sequined dress. For something more non-conventional, try using it as a hair accessory!
Girls, get ready to get all that jewelry out of the box!
