Having spent more than half the year indoors with the most glamorous part of our outfit being a clean pair of sweatpants, it’s about time we upgraded our sartorial game. And with Diwali just round the corner, we’ve finally found a reason to dress up and go full glam. But as celebrations turn virtual, we know one thing for sure—this year’s festive season is all about above-keyboard dressing and to state it more specifically—jewellery.
We get it. Picking the right jewellery style that goes with your ensemble can be hard and we’re here to help. Ahead: take major accessory inspo from our favourite Bollywood celebrities. Swipe through for the celebrity jewellery styles we’re definitely stealing this Diwali:
You can never go wrong with a classic pair of jhumkas – and Karisma Kapoor's look is proof. Go for multiple-tiered oxidised silver jhumkas, and top the look with a humble kajra to ace the quintessential festive look.
Festive glam calls for something extra, and that rule definitely extends itself onto your accessories. Take notes from Aditi Rao Hydari and give the same-old necklace and earrings combo a rest. Instead, make an edgier statement with a kundan band maang tika and a kundan haathphool to match.
Chokers are one of the hottest jewellery trends this season – and we're here for it. Take notes from Alia Bhatt and pair a heavily embellished choker necklace with a deep-cut blouse to maximise the oomph factor in your look, and top it off with a messy bun.
We get it – sometimes, wearing heavy earrings can be a pain. And if understated glam is more your speed, take a leaf from Katrina Kaif's book and give your OTT earrings (and your ears!) a much needed break with minimal yet graceful shoulder dusters.
The best way to make a statement with your bijoux is to wear a matching set. Take your pick of precious stones (brownie points if they match your outfit) and pair the set with a low, messy ponytail to let your accessories shine through – literally!
Here's how to look your bohemian best this festive season – take inspiration from Kriti Sanon and pair layered oxidised silver necklaces with oxidised silver earrings to add an artistic touch to your ensemble.
