STYLING WITH SILVER JEWELRY
Jewelry for me is among the top 5 of my favourite accessories, apart from bags, shoes, belts and watches!
I think it stems from memories of watching my mom wearing her pearl bangles at get-togethers, to one of my sister’s obsession for artificial and junk jewelry during her college days and another one’s taste in royal jewelry.
I developed my love for jewelry during college and if there is one kind of jewelry for me that is timeless, it’s silver. It can never go out of style, plus, I love the way it gives a rustic yet elegant feel and you don’t always have to pair it with Indian wear only. There are so many ways you can team up Silver jewelry.
One of my favourite ways is to opt for a black crop top and a checked flowy skirt with dangling silver filigree earrings from Indiavaale.
Another one of my favourites ways to style using silver jewelry, a crisp white chicken kurta with straight black pants and Indiavaale Silver Filigree Bangles.
Here are a few of my takes on how to style and pair different pieces of jewelry with outfits:
Mix and Match
It’s not necessary to match the colours of your outfit with the jewelry all the time, for e.g.; if you’re wearing a bright Blue Kurti, pair it with silver jhumkis and don’t forget those kohl filled eyes for a maximum effect. If you’re carrying a sporty look, opt for a mix of black armbands with light silver charm bracelets.
Many people think that any earring or necklace will suit all body types, but that’s not true. Figure out which part of your face and neck is the focus point and aim at accentuating that. Make sure you balance your earrings or neckpieces based on the shape of your face. For e.g.; if your face has a strong jaw line, consider wearing silver hoops. People with more weight around the neck must team up fall/or dangling earrings to make their face appear slimmer.
Just like choosing the right shade of lipstick or foundation, one must choose the right colour/tone in jewelry too. It’s also good to keep in mind the colour of your hair. For e.g.; if your hair is a light brown or has light highlights, opt for deep maroons and turquoise gem jewelry. However, if you have dark brown or black hair with no highlights, opt for dull gold and silver.
Remember, you don’t have to accessorize every outfit with jewelry to make yourself stand out. For e.g.; if you’re heading out for a team dinner, wear a smart jacket over a white shirt and blue denims and wear just midi rings on your fingers. If you’re wearing a short dress, opt for bold solid colour rings or a silver cocktail ring.
Lastly, Trust your instinct and develop your own style statement. Just because it is in fashion doesn't mean you have to follow it.
