Expert Style Tips For Festive Jewellery
If you’re looking for something that is trend-specific, we got you covered on that too. ELLE got in touch with celebrity stylist Devki B to give us a lowdown on what’s trending this season and how you can style it.
1. Colorful Stones
“Ditch traditional stones like diamonds and classic pearls and bring back fashion’s mandates aka bright colourful statements. Colorful stones are having a total moment and also won’t break your bank like the traditional alternatives. Wear this trend with a monochrome outfit for a pop of colour,” she shares.
2. Floral Motifs
“Dainty, floral motifs have been popping up on jewellery designs. These delicate pieces are perfect accents to western options in lieu of heavy traditional clothes. Floral jewellery is great for daytime looks that need a little pick me up,” Devki adds.
3. Shoulder-Grazing Earrings
“Skip full sets and heavy necklaces as statement earrings are now a thing. With clear necklines, shoulder-grazing earrings are the perfect option for an evening look that focuses on your jewellery without going overboard,” the stylist tells us.
