Accessories every festive outfit needs
Festive dressing leading up to Diwali, or the endless weddings this time of the year require you put your best foot forward sartorially, and even if your ensemble is relatively simple, it’s your accessories that’ll be your heroes no matter what the occasion. We give you major lessons in styling your Indian clothes bang on point with 6 accessory pairings that’ll never fail you no matter what.
PRETTY IN PASTELS
Sometimes all you need is a statement clutch, shoes & earrings in downplayed pastels that’ll perfectly round off your heavy gota-laden clothes, and would go equally well with an elegant cocktail saree.
The more is more aesthetic always wins hands down, especially during the shaadi season ‘cos no sister of the bride should look anything less than smashing herself. Gold with gold with gold is usually a winning look depending on what your outfit is of course.
Tassels are still red hot this Fall, and nothing says tres chic like a pair of blinged out tassel earrings, a matching bag and eclectic sequin-encrusted flats that’ll go well with a cocktail dress, saree or even a fanc-ey pantsuit.
A pearl and gold choker with matching earrings, a regal peacock printed clutch and wedges would play the dream accessories to any gharara.
Mix ‘n match is the way all the cool girls are doing ethnic these days, so it only makes sense then to carry a modern-esque clutch with juttis and traditional jewellery to go with your suit.
And, sometimes you just have to go even more extra than you’d prefer, and be more blinged out than usual with a matching shimmery gold clutch+gold flats+and a jewellery set more gold than anything else.
