We Indian love to wear western attire, as they are easy to wear and comfortable. But, our fashion has a Desi aspect too, just like we wear chuda with jeans and mojdis with shorts. Indian women love traditional jewelry, as it gives you a rich and magnificent look. We mostly wear them only at weddings and special occasions with traditional attire. But as you know, fashion has no constant rule, so why not pick up your traditional jewelry, collaborate it with your western attire and show your flabbergasting desi andaaz to the world? So, let us see how to add traditional jewelry to your western attire.
Kundan and Polki Jewelry with Dresses:
Kundan jewelry depicts Indian royalty and gives a stunning look when paired with traditional outfits. It absolutely looks equally gorgeous with western outfits, whether it is a long gown, short skirt or frill frock. Kundan and polki jewelry with western outfitsis an elegant combination and can instantly uplift your look. Sonam Kapoor wore it on an award function show with a white dress and looked every bit of beautiful. Kareena Kapoor Khan also paired it with a lovely green western dress and she looked mesmerizing.
Rani Haar with Gown and Deep Neck Dresses:
Long multi layered necklace, Rani haar, comes with numerous designs with Kundan, pearl, gemstone and gold. You can pair this piece of jewelry with a gown or any deep neck dresses. Here, Madhuri Dixit Nene has worn polki Rani haar with a long black dress and she is looking like a royal queen.
Traditional Intricate Earrings:
Earrings are the first love of any girl and without intricate earrings, your jewelry collection is incomplete. There are numerous types of traditional jewelry like chandbali, jhumka. You would always love pairing these with ethnic dresses, but girls, you can also elegantly pair it with any of the western outfits like Garvita paired up beautiful chand balis with tux jumpsuit in this OOTD and looked every bit of beautiful. Deepika confidently sported heavy Amrapali earrings with her sequined gown.
Strut Your Anklet with Jeans or LBD:
I have a friend, who once advised me to not wear anklet with jeans as it is made to be worn with ethnic attire. But girls, an anklet looks equally beautiful, when paired with jeans, shorts or LBD. The market is full of various cute designs so experiment it!!!
Embrace Traditional Choker:
Choker has become prominent statement jewelry over a time. You will find various designs and patterns in them. You can pair it with every western attire. Rihaana has worn embellished choker with black dress. There are many Bollywood Divas who also experiment their look with Choker.
Get That Heavy Maangtika:
Now, you must be surprised how Maangtika can be paired with western dresses? But girls you can! The newbie of Bollywood Kiara Advani accessorized her plain black dress with a gorgeous Maangtika and she looks like a goddess. Even the beauty queen Deepika had perked up her long shimmery gown with an exquisite Maangtika.
Pizazz Your Look with Traditional Kada and Bangles :
We love to wear Kadas and bangles with ethnic attire. But, have you tried wearing it with western attire? You can pair your ethnic kadas with a long gown, different kinds of dresses and even withlong sleeved shirts. All you need to do is just try to pair it with some funky hand cuff and you will get the bold look instantly. You can also match it with your earrings like the cute look of Alia Bhatt.
Adorn Your Hand with Hath Phool :
Another must-have jewelry for Indian women is Hath phool. You can glam up your entire look by wearing Hath phool. You can find various pretty designs of hath phool in the market. The beautiful Hath Phool is simply uplifting the whole look of Gauhar’s outfit. Who will forget to add the picture of Rati di sporting Hath phool with monotone pencil skirt and peplum top!
Spice Up Your Look with Kamarband:
I think this is one of the sexiest jewelry. It looks heavenly when paired with a saree. You can also add a dose of spice to your gown and short dresses.
Trick Your Look with Nose Pin and Nose Ring:
If I am talking about nose pin, then how can I forget Rati di? She always adds a pinch of beauty in her western outfit with nose pin. Even Sonam Kapoor stole many hearts, when she proudly showed off her diamond nose ring with a saree gown on the carpet of Cannes.
