The official conch shell has been blown. Durga Puja is here and we are sure, the tailor rounds are over, the blouses and saris are ready and all you are looking forward to is getting decked up. But have you set your jewellery styles in place yet? How about rocking it the celebrity way? We give you five diktats that our Bengali bombshells sway in and you can copy and paste on yourself without batting an eyelid. If you are not a sari but a lehengha and choli or a salwar-suit wearer, they would work well for you too.
Earrings, Bangles & No-neckpieces
This style has been recurrent at all pandals (Durga puja gatherings). Bengalis love deep necks and backs and trust the no-neckpiece style renders you sensuous to the T. While donning this style, you could be experimental, choose either or both the earrings or bangles to be elaborate. Avoid choosing very simple ones as they would not put the spotlight on you.
This is the easiest and safest. Go heavy or minimal. Elegant earrings, basic bangles or bracelets and a neat neckpiece and you are ready to make a statement. Go all out, layer the neck up with all sizes, wear long danglers or chunky studs, kadas, coral and conch bangles or the usual big or many bangles up to the elbow. This goes well with both heavy-duty and subtle attires. So flaunt and flock with panache.
‘Long’ For It
Nothing like long neckpieces and nothing else matters really. It draws attention to your outfit, your dainty neckline and your overall look. Plus, you don’t have to wrack your head on matching the neckpiece and neckline. Just choose the longest from your collection, preferable one with a pendant and you are good to go. Earrings and bangles not required really. Your choice. Pick one maybe.
