One may think that women like to gaze into their overflowing wardrobe and still turn up empty-handed on deciding what to wear. While that may be only partially true, the real struggle is curating the WHOLE look without taking too long. For those of us who believe in going all out while dressing - with befitting jewellery and accessories, the struggle is real.
We shall witness a whole new level of this struggle come Eid, as our shopping plans are foiled anyway. So the real mind-scratcher is how to pair your ethnic outfits with jewellery that you own. These dainty little pieces have the ability to take your outfits to a whole new level of glam - so we intend to take this segment seriously. We shall take you step-by-step on how to nail the Eid look- inspired by Alia Bhatt's covetable jewels, of course, as the actress has worn the best of baubles throughout her enviable sartorial journey.
Personally, gold jhumkas are always my go-to pieces to pair any ethnic saree with. This quintessential bauble complements almost every other traditional silhouette. But if you have any jewel-tone silk saree around, pair these jhumkas for a regal look.
We are highly OD'ing on this season's best jewellery trend - enamel, especially pastel shades. You can opt for contrasting colours while pairing with the outfit of your choice, to make the look more scene-stealing.
Antique jewellery, a yet another classic style, is a befitting option for any contemporary outfit - or even your sharara! This exact look is what we are going to emulate for our Eid party (by raiding our mom's jewel box, of course).
Pretty pearls have always been a mainstay in our jewel boxes. Wear these statement-worthy pieces with your minimal ethnic outfit, especially white ones, to elevate the whole look.
Drop earrings are a perfect choice if your outfit is heavily embroidered. They give a simple nudge to the overall-intricate look. We're convinced to get one ourselves, for sure.
We have grown up watching our mothers and grandmothers wear this traditional style of earring. Kan-chain is a deeply traditional heirloom-worthy jewellery that we will be wearing with our sarees.
If you're going all-out with your Eid outfit, with a lehenga, of course, then what better option than a traditional choker necklace to accentuate your outfit? We have a galore of options there as well, with kundan, beads, pearls and precious stones.
OTT statement danglers add charm to your otherwise-simple outfit. If you're planning a simple white kurta set with a jewel-tone dupatta, we suggest pairing one of these for a head-turning look.
Just like jhumkas, chandbaalis are the mainstays of any jewellery box. They are just as quintessential, and you can pair them with outfits ranging from ethnic kurta sets to fusion tunics as well.
If you prefer barely-there jewellery, this one's for you. This dainty, yet statement-making piece of jewellery has us redefining all norms of a traditional look. Opt for a mangtikka by Confluence for a similar look.
Everybody owns at least one pair of oxidized jhumkas in their bijoux box, and just like the gold ones, these go with every ethnic style. Pair these with minimal outfits for a statement look.
Are you ogling after these jewellery options just as we are? Wear these for Eid and look as stunning as Alia Bhatt.
