Accessorize it “RIGHT”

Accessorize it “RIGHT”

By- Sakshi Lalwani

We girls have this tendency to look perfect every time we step out of our homes. Be it casual movie scenes, or a friend’s birthday party, or a formal dinner with parents, colleagues or our bosses, we want everything to be “just right” and when I am saying every thing, I literally mean EVERYTHING – from our hair clips/hairbands, to the color of our nails, to our slim fit denims enhancing our assets, to the footwear we choose. There is this constant urge in us to stand out in the crowd and be noticed, if not by compliments, then by the changing looks on the faces of people ensuring us that we did a great job today!
If you fall in this category, then I am sure you realize that apart from choosing our clothes in the correct manner, it is how we pick our accessories. The “3W’s H” mantra– WHAT to wear, WHEN to wear, WHERE to wear and HOW to wear, should have been embedded in our bloodline by now. Today with the changing trends in fashion, junk jewellery is not just about bangles or neck pieces, it has a far more eloquent meaning to our style statement. Lets talk about some of the “must haves accessories” I think should compliment most of our wardrobe:
  • On a beach with friends? Plus a bad hair day? Don’t worry, just tie your hair- make a high puff pony tail or leave them roughly open and use this smart hair accessory to give your look a completely different bohemian style.

  • Sometimes we just don’t find those matching earrings in our closet. Danglers seem to loud, studs are too light, ring tops are too casual. This classy new ear cuffs comes as a life saviour at that point of time. Pair it with a dress, a jumpsuit, a gown or even a saree, this little thing covering your ear will definitely make you an intangible goddess of the evening.

JEWELLERY TRENDS

JEWELLERY TRENDS

Is it delicate rings, layered bracelets or chunky necklaces trending this season in the jewellery department? Let’s find out, shall we?

Jewellery trends are generally put together after carefully tracking the red carpet, runways around the globe as well as real life fashionistas. Here is our take on what’s hot and what’s not on this front.

 

Bib Necklaces

It started with chunky, stringy, long neck pieces, and has now been reinvented in the form of bib necklaces. These are designed with a flat feel to it; it still is as jazzy and eye catching as the chunky neck pieces but just slightly more refined.

These necklaces are much easier to wear and style as well – they sit very well around your neck regardless of whether you’re wearing a dress, formal shirt or a casual tee. The designs available vary from one end to the other; some are made of cloth, some of beads, some are stylishly outrageous while some are simple and modest.

Reptile Bracelets

Sure, sounds weird, but it seems to be quite popular. Instead of the usual flowery, girly designs, what better way to bring out your wild side with reptiles wrapping themselves around your wrist. Once you see the designs and try ‘em on, I think you’ll be much more convinced.

 Ring-Bracelet

These used to be the in thing a long time ago, and it’s exciting to see it come back. The designs are all revolving around delicate wear. Pick simple, thin chained ring-bracelets to wear with your outfit, or if you are more of a chunky person – there are options with beads and stones also!

Ear Cuffs

These are not for the weak, ear cuffs have always been a symbol of the bold and adventurous. This piece of jewellery always exudes confidence and a sense of raw passion. But this time, they’ve come back altered to fit everyone’s personality – there are some beautiful delicate ones as well as the loud, daring designs.
