Indian women tend to have a broad body structure. We are naturally blessed with a curvaceous body, which can carry traditional and western outfits with equal élan. Keeping this very thought in mind, VelvetCase and I worked on a concept that can team up jewellery and ensemble for traditional, fusion and modern looks this wedding season.
Destination weddings have become common. People have started to opt for jewellery that can suffice the look of diamonds or gold in order to avoid the risk of it being lost. Having said that, we are almost in the midst of the wedding season and it would be the apt time to showcase an amalgamation of wedding, fusion or cocktail jewellery styled with different outfits.
Wedding / Occasion Wear
1. To begin, my first choice was to showcase a bridal or occasion wear, hence I chose wearing a bold kundan necklace set by Auraa Trends which is showcased on Velvetcase. It complements this stunning brown and golden full length dress with a brown and golden checkered jacket designed by Kshitij Chaudhary (available at Krasaa By Vikram Phadnis).
2. If you want to avoid wearing heavy necklaces, experiment your look with different kinds of silver and kundan earrings. Just as I have tried on these dangler pearl danglers. Alternates being chandbalis, paisely with a bell shaped jhumka that is studded with kundan, or vintage styled black rhodium elephant earrings or gemstones with cubic zirconia earrings. These are all available on Velvetcase.
3. Not upto any of the above, try a bold cuff or layering bangles or kadas. Do ensure that it is bold or has enough layers to complement as a stand alone piece of jewellery.
4. Personally I love wearing hair accessories. It not only looks great but that one piece can draw all the desired attention. If styled and pinned properly on the hair, it gives you the freedom to move around comfortably without having to accessorise your hands or neck.

Traditionally hand harness was a “must have” for a bride and over the years has became a fashion accessory that could be worn not only over traditional outfits but denims too.
5. If maang tikka is your must do then you could wear cocktail rings or lightweight earrings along.
Pastels are trending the winter palate, hence for my cocktail look I opted for an off shoulder pastel gown with beautiful silhouettes and light embroidery by Anj Kreations.
- To add a healthy dose of oomph I chose a swarovski zirconia necklace with clean bold motifs that could be worn by itself. A pair of abstract earrings made it perfect for my formal look. In order to make it dressier, I went all out by adding a flexible cuff.
Alternatively one could experiment with gemstone rings along with a pair of classic earrings. You could also contrast the look all together by wearing traditional chandbali in neutral tones.
Black Beauty – The Modern Look
Last but not the least, we cannot do away without our LBD’s (little black dress) wearing a black layered ensemble with golden bead work, I adorned a Swarovski Zirconia necklace studded with bold yellow stones.
The second look involved diamond chandeliers which can be worn standalone or paired with a geometric cuff. The motifs are inspired by the current art-deco trend.
The third option is wearing traditional jhoomar earrings or a passa, another trend to watch for! The passa may not match the look but hey! Isn’t it all about setting your own rule!
