Decoding accessories for your Saree
An outfit is a blank slate without accessories. The right accessories can change the look of your outfit tremendously. They take your look from plain-Jane to ultra glam! Now, many a times, it is an intimidating thought to pair accessories with sarees. Choosing the correct accessory to go with your saree can be difficult, even for that fashion forward friend of yours, which you rely on for fashion tips. No need to worry, we are here to decode accessories for your sarees.
Accessorize according to your saree:
The type of saree is the number one factor to consider when you’re choosing your accessories. Silk sarees are known for their elegance and grace. Go for statement jhumkis to match that elegance. If you’re wearing a Banarsi saree, it is always advisable to stay away from imitation diamond jewelry and choose a classic gold kundan choker necklace instead.
Accessories for special occasions:
You should also consider the occasion as an important factor. If it’s a wedding that you are planning to attend, wear your gorgeous saree with a statement vilandi set for reception parties. You can also accessorize it further by wearing a matching maang tikka. For a cocktail party, your stunning saree gown can be worn with statement chandelier earrings, a diamond choker and broad kadas. You can also wear a passa for a royal look.
If you’re donning a saree for a corporate event, try keeping the accessories muted. A simple pearl necklace and studs would be perfect to wear when you ace that presentation. For daily office wear, a simple gold chain with a pendant, rings and a simple set of bangles would be an ideal option.
Don’t forget to accessorize your fingers:
Rings are the most underrated accessories. It’s always pleasant to look at well-accessorized hands while greeting someone. You can make the correct first impression by wearing rings. Midi rings are in vogue this season. Stack your traditional kundan rings with midi rings for an Indo-Western vibe. Palm bracelets are also a trendy way to be fashionable. Wear them with your net sarees for a sangeet party.
Charm of headgear:
A bridal look is incomplete without being accessorized from head to toe. A damani (headgear) is a classic and timeless ornament which completes a bridal look. It is usually worn on the wedding day, hence choose a damani that is lightweight so that it would be comfortable to wear during the rituals. Bridesmaids, even you can flaunt your damini, however, make sure it’s a simple one as you wouldn’t want to steal the spotlight from the bride!
Stack ‘em up:
A kada is a must-have piece that every girl must possess. Kadas come in various styles. A thin kada could be your everyday accessory. A kundan or a meenakari cuff is your best bet when it comes to eveningwear. It looks absolutely stunning with any kind of saree. If you’re petite and kadas aren’t your choice, stack as many bangles as you can. Bangles are timeless and look stunning with sarees.
Ace your traditional look, now that we have decoded the accessories for your saree. Happy accessorizing!
