A Striking Melange Of The East And The West

A Striking Melange Of The East And The West

 

Our jewellery gets locked up for most times besides the occasional peeks during the wedding season. Why save your beautiful jewels just for sarees and lehengas? Fashion is all about experimenting and creating something new. For art that you can wear, it isn’t too liberating to be bound by rules when it comes to styling yourself. Explore and experiment to make a statement by pairing your traditional jewellery with your favourite jeans. The following are some of the ways in which you can intermingle the grandeur of traditional jewellery and the ease of modern clothing for a slick look:

necklace

Take the classic blue jeans and white shirt combination up a notch by adding a Kundan necklace to it. Wear it over the buttoned collar for a bold evening look. You can wear it under the shirt with one button undone for a little peek of shine for a subtler effect.

If you wish to jazz up your outfit, ditch the jeans for a lehenga skirt and make heads turn at your next party inspired by the look of Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma in her latest movie ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.

chokerFor someone who is hesitant to try something new, this blend of east and west is simple yet striking. Traditional chokers can brighten up your favourite little black dress. Add some sparkly colour to your outfit with a diamond choker necklace. The bare shoulders bring all the attention to your necklace, which is sure to make you stand out just like the ever so beautiful Kareena Kapoor Khan.

 rani-haar

Make a serious fashion statement with this bold attire. Dig through your family heirlooms for that traditional Rani Haar, which gives a royal look. The extravagantly layered necklace deserves red carpet attention. Pair it with a flowy low-neck maxi dress for a flirty yet elegant ensemble.

  jhumkas

A classy evening gown in a rich solid colour with heavy gold jhumkas will up your fashion game in a moment. Perfect for a formal event, a pair of bold shoulder-grazing dangling jhumkas will create a stir with a subtle elegance.

bangles

Adding a little bling to an otherwise casual outfit can take a casual day look to a chic night look with ease. Stack up all your favourite kadas together with a girly sundress for a bohemian-inspired style. The fluid, fun dress with contrasting elaborate bangles creates a perfect attire for a night by the beach.

An extreme yet trendy amalgamation of the east and west, this combination is a perfect example of Indo-western fusion. Pair a traditional gold kamarband with a solid coloured jumpsuit for an effortlessly stylish look. Acting as a belt, it will accentuate your waist while adding oodles of glamour to your look.

So, raid your mother’s closet and dig out those glittering pieces to make a dazzling fashion statement!
