The Bling Quotient


Much like the retro trends of flouncy outfits being usurped by the fancy fitted silhouettes, jewellery trends have undergone a sea change. The conventional gold ornaments have become passé paving way for the likes of statement jewellery to grab the eyeballs of fashion conscious.

Magnificent earrings, unconventional necklaces, layered bracelets, brooches and chunky rings that appeal to the onlooker’s aesthetic sensibilities are the latest vogue on the runway. One can mix and match these ornaments in sync with the attires to get an exotic and rugged look. Most of these pieces are carved out of oxidised silver, platinum and use a lot of semi –precious stones. Champagne cocktail rings, long lusty pendants worn in silver or bronze chains, oxidised metal cuffs, square bangles, fringed necklaces, and long pearl strands are some of the items that can add an instant oomph to both formal and informal attires.

Celebrities like Avril Lavigne, Mandy Moore, Ann Hathaway, Sushmita Sen and the ultimate style diva Paris Hilton, all seem to be swearing by this fancy trend.

Here is how you can be an instant style diva by flaunting some vintage or contemporary pieces
• Wear only one piece at a time, opt between a necklace, a hand cuff or a chunky ring
• Contrasting colours go a long way in attracting eye balls, so mix and match
• Chains and pendants complement informal attires whereas carpet dresses look best with necklaces or an opulent ring
• Refrain from over indulging and stick to a bold yet minimal look for an ultimate appeal.
