Deepika Padukone needs no introduction. With sculpted features like that of a goddess, it's no wonder she's a face that graces many editorials - domestic and international.
Decoding her self-proclaimed profound love for jewellery, here are Deepika's 10 best contemporary looks that make me nothing short of envious for her glamorous style.
Look 1 - Classic Pearls
How does one take classic pearls and use them for a contemporary look? Taking style cues from Deepika, we deciphered that pearls work best with monotone apparels. Blacks supplies a direct canvas for white and ivory pearls to accentuate the look. Want to go a step ahead? We suggest overdoing pearls with chunky pearl tiered necklaces to give a modern vibe to the desired style.
Look 2 - Crystal-Encrusted Hoops
The '90s were ruled by hoops and we don't think it's going to disappear any time soon. While I may not always be a fan of sporting hoops, this crystal-encrusted version is something that would interest me, too. Pair it with gowns and dresses to get all the attention to your decolletage.
Look 3 - Crystal Danglers
This style of minimal contemporary jewellery best suits Deepika's personality. Crystal danglers are not only glamourous but also chic. Perfect for any formal event, these beauties are best worn with jacket suits and simplest of LBD's.
Look 4 - Flower Studs
These flower-shaped studs have my heart. For someone who thoroughly enjoys (and can afford) power dressing and still likes to keep things feminine, these studs make me look my modest self. Graceful and demure, these studs make you look like you belong in an uber-chic cocktail party.
Look 5 - Geometric Metal Danglers
Long geometric earrings would be the best kind of jewellery to symbolise my personal style. Just like Deepika, it brings out the fierce and bold vibe that accounts to power-dressing. There is a fierce element associated with minimal metal jewels that just boost your confidence.
Look 6 - OTT chunky earrings
There is no such thing as owning enough statement earrings! If I had my way, my ideal everyday look would be pairing an ethnic kurta with chunky and flamboyant earrings. This combination of contemporary-fusion has shaped most of my wardrobe, with compliments getting better with each look. OTT earrings, yes; OTT earrings on Deepika, bliss!
Look 7 - Gold Overdose
When you have spent 7 years with Ranveer Singh, his sense of style is bound to rub off on you. Deepika makes this notorious overuse of metal work in her favour proving that 'more is more' isn't always the worst thing. Here's your inspiration to switch up any mundane look with gold jewellery.
Look 8 - Detailed Hoops
It looks like hoops accentuate Deepika's face like no other, and to top it off, these detailed hoops add some extra oomph to the regular chunky ones. Practically a party bauble, these hoops are best seen with bandage dresses and crop tops. While it takes immense courage to sport these, we suggest owning at least one pair of these so you don't have to use any other!
Look 9 - Demure Minimal Danglers
Here's presenting a pair of earrings which are a must-have in every woman's jewellery box. If your personal sense of style oscillates towards simple, then, we suggest minimal danglers like this. Wear it with ball gowns or embellished lehengas.
Look 10 - Embellished Mesh Danglers
As we (unwillingly) conclude the list of contemporary jewellery worn by Deepika, it has dawned on me that long danglers suit her the best. If you're inspired by Deepika and want to go sans necklace to your next look, I suggest wearing one of these with monotone off-shoulder tops and dresses.
We agree it is hard to decide which baubles she looks the best in, but we need suggestions in the comments below which jewellery we have to get our hands on next.
