She may be the first celebrity to herald the beginning of airport fashion for desi pop culture, but Kareena Kapoor Khan is still quite amazed at how her effortless on-the-go fashion came to resonate with her young fans. Dressing down is obviously hugely relevant in the millennial era, as youngsters enjoy keeping it effortless. But they do want to bring in some fine jewellery into the daily dressing spectrum, for an element of quirk and elegance. However, finding the right high jewellery pieces to go with your breezily styled ensemble is quite an ordeal. It’s all about choosing the right number and the perfect design elements.
For a recent fashion shoot, Kareena sported a stunningly effervescent and yet dressy set of diamond jewellery by Malabar Gold and Diamonds(Mumbai) to showcase how dressing down can actually be quite iconic. For the shoot, Kareena wore some pieces which were classic, but contemporary and quite design-rich. Intricate silhouettes and unique craftsmanship is something all millennials enjoy, and who doesn’t like pairing diamond earring with a casual white crop shirt? From stunningly wearable chandelier earrings to chic shoulder dusters, Bebo dons it all from Malabar’s diverse curation, and we try to take some styling cues from her impeccable looks.
Though chandelier earrings are a hit even on global runways, it is quite tricky to style the pieces as they can come off as too elaborate, or dressier than expected. But the Malabar Gold and Diamonds’ number worn by Kareena is distinctly breezy while being eye-catching; the earring has been designed with strings of diamonds and the classic silhouette helps add the touch of easy modernity, which is exactly what you need when you’re planning something sophisticated but hassle-free. Notice how no other elements have been introduced to keep up the consistency, which is exactly what makes this number so versatile; and it is priced at just over Rs 8 lac, so it can easily be a part of your destination wedding wardrobe too.
Ring in the newness
We may be in love with this chic substitute for the basic hoop; Malabar Gold and Diamonds is making way for a more stylised way of wearing classic styles, and this look defines the sentiment perfectly. This unique minimal diamond hoop is a more wearable and a lavish take on your standard hoops. Featuring a twirling silhouette of flawless adjoined with some intricate diamond leaves, the concept of the diamond hoop puts a spin on the regular go-to design and makes it more in sync with the new-age aesthetic of experimental styling. This makes it more breezy and it can fit any fashion memo from semi-casual to cocktail.
These strategically descending diamonds lined up in a neatly structured shoulder-duster is the ideal transitional jewellery; you can wear it with a crisp short or a pantsuit, or team it up with a saree or even a little black dress. The earring features sharp cut geometric clusters of diamonds and what really impressed us was the exquisite aura of the design; it’s elaborate but not overwhelming. It’s priced at just over Rs 2 lac, and if that’s not a steal, we don’t know what is.
