The Love For Chunky Jewellery Has Returned
The choice of jewellery is often a reflection of one's true self. It gets even more interesting when occasion and trends intersect, it's intriguing how women choose their jewellery. A playful mood of hanging out with her girl gang demands a casual classic look. A precious stone pendant, large gold hoops highlight her playfulness and her "letting her hair down" attitude. Whereas a date night is when she wants to impress with not just her beauty" but who she is, her personality, her signature style. At a family get together or a birthday party, she may choose to wear a semi-formal shift dress or a silk kaftan with layered gold chains and a heavy anklet. Chunky jewellery is a trend that has never gone out of style. Be it gold or silver, a woman who can dare to wear a large chunky piece of jewellery is someone who comes across as strong, stylish and impactful individual.
Her choice of jewellery and styling adds to the persona that she wants to project to the world, her true self. She surely knows how to carry her style with pride, be it business meets, conferences, family dinners, or date nights.
In the current times, it's all about exhibiting strength and resilience. There are times when one has to be fierce and times when one feels calm and serene. The attire and the accessories always help to add to the persona. The various junctures of life may demand to project multiple facets of one’s personality that leaves long-lasting impressions. Let us take a tour of some of the hats that the woman of today dons and what she does to embellish the different facets of her personality.
For a conference or a business meeting that demands power dressing, a subtle western business attire or linen kurta, silk or a tussar saree are just the right outfits to project the professional side. At the end of all that matters is whether one feels confident and comfortable.
An outfit can only enhance the persona if we can carry it with comfort and confidence. The right jewellery worn with an outfit can surely help complete a look. For example, one can team a western business suit with a chunky gold bracelet and a solid rock of solitaire ring. At the same time, a saree can work with just a statement nose pin of a large diamond flower, bright studs and a gold chain.
Office wear has always been a tricky area. The idea is to look classy, subtle yet impactful and stylish. The work attire may vary from regular saree and kurti to western outfits of formal skirts and trousers. Tops and jackets to well-cut smart formal dresses and everyday Indian wear with one heavy piece of jewellery is a choice that could never go wrong.
A chunky bangle can be all that is needed to complete the look. On the other hand, a western outfit looks stunning with golden hoops and a chain with a pendant of any colour that reflects our aura. A bright diamond or a gorgeous sapphire pendant can be a beautiful mirror to magnify our personality.
For casual workplace styling, accessorise a classic white shirt and jeans with a diamond nose ring and a layered trinketed gold chain. Next, you can try a monochrome dress with strappy sandals and a platinum chain with a statement gem-studded pendant. Finally, try stackable rings in one finger or solitaire to complete the look.
Family meets and celebrating festivals together is a large part of our Indian culture. The style is opulent yet informal. Choose your attire based on your mood. If you feel breezy and happy and know that it's going to be a long night, wear danglers that are chunky but not too heavy. You don't want them to become cumbersome.
Pair a kurta and palazzo or a chiffon saree with a stone-studded stacked ring and a layered diamond strand for a perfect evening get-together . The look created will be chic yet have an ethereal air about it.
In the "dressy" look, the idea is to look gorgeous yet balanced. If we choose a bright coloured saree or lehenga of a rich red or a royal pink, then a matted or a frosted and heavy gold jhumka and bangles will give a classic Indian look. Team a shimmery outfit with crystals with just a pair of diamond chandelier earrings.
Choose a pristine white or a dewy sea green saree to create a dreamy look. A chunky choker and a thick heavy bangle with dewy make-up are just what is needed to give the classic Indian look a surreal touch.
Pieces of jewellery are art worn through ages and speak of culture, tradition, and trends. Jewellery worn creatively can be the absolute deal-breakers. When choosing these beautiful pieces, we need to balance the look carefully.
Rather than choosing too many jewellery pieces, focus on one statement piece. Whether it's a classic chunky earring, a heavy neckpiece, or a thick bangle, build the look on the lead piece, and choose the others to balance the look. For instance, if the focal point is a precious stone studded heavy classic gold neckpiece, keep the earrings light. On the other hand, wear a heavy earring with a slimmer chain but a large nose pin and bangles.
A usual jewellery mistake occurs when one is confused about what to wear. There are jewellery options for all occasions, all you need to do is identify the right ones. Keep a few looks ready with a combination of trinketed layered necklaces, earrings and stacked rings. Another classic choice can be to wear a ring with a large solitaire or an emerald encrusted with diamonds. Look for influences like tribal jewellery or jewellery from a particular region, customise it to suit your signature style. For instance, if you wear your hair in a bun, pair yellow gold jhumkas with an intricately designed hairpin with a dangler.
Create a look that celebrates your beauty, occasion and lifestyle. Your jewellery collection is a reflection of your style, profession, legacy, and eternal journey of womanhood.
