How to accessorize with Indian Clothes

When you are wearing a traditional outfit, you need to accessorize to make sure your look is complete.

·         Pay attention to your jewellery:
Appropriate jewellery will only add grace to your outfit. Ideally you should not miss out on earrings and a chain. For example, if you are wearing a lehenga, you need to accessorise it with sufficient jewellery to complement it and  to look perfect. Wear jewellery according to the occasion and the look of your saree. Plain cotton sarees look best with light jewellery like terracotta. Opt for studs or a light dangling earring with a simple gold chain.  Also, remember to match your jewellery with the colour and work of your saree. A saree with silver will look perfect with silver or diamond jewellery whereas golden zari will go with gold sets.

·         Bangles :
One indispensable accessory for any woman attending an Indian wedding is bangles. They come in all shapes, sizes and price ranges and are the perfect accessory for following a colour theme. As pretty as it can get, these bangle designs have been changing for over so many years!

·          Pay attention to your bags:
Women’s bags are a necessity and a great style statement. Avoid bags embellished with beads, pearls, sequins etc. with your office going sarees. Reserve them for parties, festivals and other such occasions. For other ethnic wear, depending on the material and occasion choose your bags. Clutches that come in silk with motifs have been in trend lately!

·          Bindis:
Keep in mind your face shape and the occasion while selecting a bindi to go with your traditional wear. They come in all colours and styles from round, long, simple or with designs and even stones for that matter. People with round or square face will look good with bindis having some length. Long faces are apt for wearing round bindis.

Remember it’s all about mix and match when it comes to accessories. There are many more accessories that can be paired with our ethnic wear that we’ll be looking at in the future blogs. You can visit our store or check our site for some gorgeous ethnic accessories!

Trends for 2015

Latest fashion trends are something that all of us want to be updated at all times. It might not be possible to buy all the magazines to stay updated. So here is a quick glimpse into the colours, prints and trends that we can look forward to this season!

Colours: This season we can look forward to an eclectic mix of vivid hues, shades inspired from nature, soft pastels and neutral shades. From classic greens to marsala we will be seeing a wide range of colour combinations for this season.

Fabrics: Traditional fabric is going to rule the fabric charts this season! Apart from our favourite silks, we have a lot of other fabrics such as georgette, chiffon and cotton which are on the lighter side.

Prints: Prints have always played an important role in fashion. Florals, geometric prints, etc. To enhance these prints, mirror work, sequins, appliqué work is also used.

So, here are some tips to look gorgeous in Indian Ethnic Outfits!
Pick the perfect saree/ lehenga based on your body type.
If you are heavy on the top, do not wear fabrics that cling to your top portions.
Monochromatic Indian outfits make you look tall and less bulky.
Make sure you have the right accessories to go with your ethnic wear. Accessories like neck pieces, bracelet watches and sleek bangles and dangling earrings.
Once you know the kind of sarees will suit your body, next thing that should be taken care of is your blouse. Go for designer blouses and try different neck types based on your body.
Dark-coloured clothes create an illusion of being slim; where as you can totally go for lighter shades if you are on the skinny side.
Right footwear is yet another important thing that helps you to look perfect. Stilettos are just perfect to make you look chic in a saree, anarkali dress or a lehenga.

Given a wide range to choose from, it is important to know what will look best on you!
First it is important to understand your body type. The body types we’re going to look at are: hourglass, apple, and pear, voluptuous and slim figures.

Hourglass: You have a lot of options to choose from if your body shape falls under this category. Netted sarees, Tissue sarees and Lehenga sarees are the saree types that are most preferable. When you go for silk sarees it is very important to make sure you choose small motifs and drape it the right way.
Voluptuous Figure: Chiffon, net fabrics, soft silk and georgette materials suit you the best. Opt for dark colours and delicate embroidery/ bead work. A good pallu is very important because it suits best when you don’t take pleats and let it fall.
Slim Figure: If you are slim, never go for thin materials such as chiffon. Always choose heavy silk sarees that will give more volume to your body. It is also important for you to make sure that you go for lighter shades and heavy embroidery or bead work.
Apple shaped figure: Heavy sarees are the perfect for your body type. Such as silk, crepe or any saree with a lot of work. Avoid netted sarees and other thin materials that will stick to your body. You can opt for silk sarees that have embellishments/ embroidery. Go for longer sleeved blouses and make sure the blouse colour is contrast to your saree. Make sure you drape your silk saree in a very simple way and let the pallu do the talking!
Pear Shaped: Make sure you go for simple silk sarees. Half and half sarees, chiffon, georgette and light weight silk works best for you. Bold and bright coloured sarees with beautiful thin borders and small prints work best for you!
