The most exuberant festival of India, Diwali, is right around the corner.
The air is already filled with joy, lights, color and reverberance. Not only that, it is also the festival of flaunting your style and fashion-forwardness with new clothes and accessories.
When it comes to accessories, there’s no better choice than the most revered yellow metal, gold, for styling up yourself to worship the goddess of wealth and prosperity.
However, if you are worried about how much is too much and the other how-to’s regarding accessorizing with gold, we are here to help. Here are some tips on adding gold to your fashion diary:
1. Opt For Simpler Clothes
This one’s really an easy decision. Unless you want to look like a mannequin straight out of the glass window, never over-do your clothes when you are accessorizing them with something as dominant as gold. Leave behind fussy silhouettes and try something sleek like this kurta from Abof, to go with your statement gold neck-piece or earrings.
2. Focus On One Part At A Time
Gold can be somewhat tricky substance when it comes to styling it right. A big, grand neck-piece or pair of dangler earrings by itself is enough to lend a festive look. To make sure your statement piece shines through, wear with a striking contrast colour, like this kurta from Melange.
3. Go For A Boho Look
Ditch the traditional attires if you want to look out of the box. Moving over the festive sarees, lehengas and kurtas, you can create a look of your own by pairing gold with fusion outfits. A sleek chain with a cocktail ring, or heavy bangles with a choker – pair them with something unconventional, like this jumpsuit from Vajor.
4. Keep The Shine Right
Gold, apart from its evergreen appeal and preciousness, is cherished all over the world for its sparkling aura. To highlight its ravishing shine, put a strict no-no to any additional shiny and embellished stuff on your clothes or accessories. A simple piece of clothing like this Abof kurta makes a great backdrop.
5. Choose Flared, Flowy Silhouettes
On Laxmi Puja, create a distinguishing look by going practical yet artsy. A flared, flowy silhouette will not only keep you comfortable with the heavy jewelry, it will also help you attain a subtle, sober, and balanced look. Try this fluid yet structured kurta from Abof for a chic effect.
