Over-the-top accessorising has been bothering me for a while (sore eyes and all that!). So, here I am, ready to get it all out of my system!
- How many times do you convince yourself that you ‘must’ wear long, massive earrings and a huge neckpiece together (part of a set)? The obsession with ‘it must match’…
- How often does the inner voice in you urges you to go over the top whilst colour co-ordinating? Red blouse, Red shoes, Red bag and the list goes on…
- Finally, how many times, do you feel like an over-the-top Christmas tree?
Did you just hear yourself answer in the affirmative to any of the above? Well, then we suggest, you keep reading. We totally empathise, as the above scenarios can happen to the best of us. So, to help you (and us), we got in touch with two lovely ladies, who have mastered the ‘art of accessorising right‘ and whose styles we admire immensely. So, here we are, sharing their secrets and tips with you all. Read on:
Now, introducing Nidhi Singh Samyal, whose style we absolutely love and who has, very kindly obliged to share her ‘styling gyan’ with us. Here we go:
Nidhi’s top tips:
- Contrast bright blouses with plain sarees
- Casual Cottons look pretty, just don’t go overboard with the accessories!
- Neckpieces, can be the focal point without being too bold (if that’s what you fancy!); however, try not to add other large jewellery to deviate from it
- If you like matching the neckpiece with the attire, then do a subtle match (a few beads of the same colour, nothing more!)
- Less is always more!
Noopur’s top tips:
- Wear solid colours, if you want to wear a statement piece
- If your saree (or dress) is bright and colourful, then please do not accessorise it with bright colourful jewellery; let your clothes do the talking
- Do not wear too much make up with bright clothes , particularly in day time
- Follow Coco Channel’s advice : look in mirror one last time before you leave the house and remove one piece of jewellery
- Mix colours; a pink saree , a pink blouse , pink accessories, pink footwear is rather predictable! Contrasts and unexpectated combinations are always more interesting
- Remember less is more !
So, feeling all enlightened yet? I suppose, the key point made by both these ladies is that less is certainly always enough! The power of the neckpiece is well proven to me; hope it is to you too. Thank you Noopur and Nidhi!
Here is to stylish, elegant, well-accessorised people!
