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!
