And then I thought it would be great if I can give you guys some jewellery styling tips which you can pair with those party wears. But….these jewellery would not just suit Indian dresses but western outfits too. I am one of those who prefer simple dresses and accessorizes it with jewellery. So want to know how to accessorize jewellery with your outfit? Then keep reading

Oxidized jewellery styling

So oxidized silver jewellery is so in trend these days. And this can amp up any simple outfit in no time. If you are wearing a very plain kurti, just add a heavy oxidized neckpiece and a simple earring.

And if you are wearing a western outfit let’s say jeans, just wear a pair of oxidized silver jhumka or heavy bracelet. This is going to highlight both your face and your entire outfit. But make sure you are not wearing any other jewelry on your neck.

Statement jewellery

Statement jewellery is like a boon to all the lazy bugs. Just wear that one piece and that’s it, you look like a fashionista. But the most important thing is you wear them right.

Statement jewellery styling tips for Indian outfits

If you are wearing an Indian outfit like Anarkali or saree or a kurti or suit, one big statement earring is enough to turn the entire outfit look beautiful and traditional. A big jhumka or a bali is more than enough. I am suggesting statement earing with Indian outfit because we Indians love wearing it and most of the time ethnic wear (if fancy) has works & designs on their dresses. And if you are a hijabi like me where you can’t show off your statement earing, you can go for a statement ring.

Statement jewellery styling tips for Western outfits

The best way to oomph up your western dresses is by using a statement necklace. No matter if you are wearing a shirt or a denim jacket or maxi adding a statement neckpiece will do the job. There are kundan, enamel and crystal necklaces which go well with any western dresses. But make sure you are not wearing any other heavy jewellery. Else it will become a fashion disaster. And if you are not so into necklaces then you can go for a statement bracelet.

Layering/stacking up the jewellery

Layering is another great way to make any outfit look chick. And you know what’s the best thing about layering? There’s no boundaries and rules.
I love stacking my bracelets with the watch. Stacking the bangles and bracelet would look good with Indian and Indo western outfits.

Layering simple necklaces looks classy and stylish and this will look amazing on any plain kurti or maxi or shirt. You can layer gold and silver or anything but make sure the color combinations look good. And if you want a hassle-free layering, there are so many layered necklaces available online. Using such layered necklaces prevent them from tangling too.

You can also layer your finger rings. My personal favorite is layering bracelets and rings. There are knuckle rings available as well.

Simple jewellery

Simple fashion jewellery styling tips for Indian outfit

Most of the time, I prefer wearing simple and dainty pieces rather than heavy jewellery. If your dresses have fancy work or loud, you can just wear a simple large hoop earring or a plain thin chain with a pendant and complete the look. Hoop earrings will suit all kinds of Indian and western outfits.

So if you are not in a mood of wearing statement pieces or layering your necklaces, all you can opt for is a plain or some simple choker or an exquisite bracelet. You are good to go.

Some bonus tips

– Always make sure to tone down your look by concentrating on only one jewellery piece at a time. Example: If you are wearing a heavy neckpiece then don’t wear a heavy earring too.

-While layering or if you are wearing all the jewellery, balance them out and mix and match all of them so that everything looks aligned.

-When playing with the colors, be sure the combinations of the jewellery right.

-If you wanna play safe, mix silver, gold and rose gold or wear them individually. These three colors will go well outfits of any color. BUT you should also make sure that the color and work on the outfit and on the jewellery are similar. For example: If your dress has some work or details with silver, wear silver colored jewellery rather than gold and vice versa
