How are you all? I am sure everybody is busy attending weddings these days! Some might be attending their best friend’s wedding, some might be of their cousins and its quite possible that most of you must be preparing for your own Big Day!! Even I am attending functions & parties, weddings and what not!! And that to back to back!! Although there is always some hustle and bustle from getting ready to giving final touches to your look, I managed three different looks for recent events I attended.
Apart from my different looks, I’ll be sharing the various jewelry trends which are completely in this season. Traditional, funky, stylish, there is serious innovation in Indian jewelry styles this year. Chandbalis, Hand harness, Mathapatti, Jhumkas, funky rings and what not!! Now-a-days its not only the bride who wears heavy and stylish jewelry, you attending your best friend’s marriage can also sport a funky look with innovative jewelery.
The most innovative of all is the Mathapatti trend this season!! I too got inspired from Bollywood divas, the way they carry these trend and styled it with one of my outfits. Here I am also sharing my 3 looks and outfits for different functions. Whether you are wearing a Saree or a simple Churidaar, you can always enhance your attire by wearing right kind of accessories, just the way I did and it worked awesomely well!!
Head Accessories – Mathapatti the latest trend
Matha Patti has evolved as a must have head accessory for all girls and bridesmaid who are attending there close one’s wedding this year. Lately it was only worn by the Bride but from this season it’s a must have accessory for every girl. There are so many forms and designs which have recently entered the market. From Simple maang tikka to Chandbaali style, multilayered style, and a lot more.
Here I am sharing the two styles which I carried this season which enhanced my look and perfect for the occasion.In one of my looks I wore an elegant Chaandbaali Maangtikka with pearls and added soft curls to my hair which overall complemented my look. I also matched it with chaandbaali earrings making it look absolutely gorgeous.
I am sure every girl now a days has grew fondness over this piece of jewel. It is favourite of all the jewellery trends and compliments any outfit worn with it. Chaandbaalis resemble like a dangling crescent moon & if worn right, it add a dash of glamour and style make you look as gorgeous as the moon itself. Channdbaalis was worn best by “Deepika” in “Ramleela”, and that’s how it made a comeback!!
Chaandbaalis now-a-days come in various styles and metals. From gold to silver, with precious stones and pearls and from a simple antique design to one with tassels of pearls. Generally these are heavy, if are in metal and can be worn with an ear chain which also gives a touch of gracefulness and can prevent you from adjusting them every now and then. Also, if you require customized Chaandbaalis matching with your outfit colors, many shops offer that facility, adding same color droplets or pearls which compliments your outfit.
Recently, I wore pearl Chaandbaalis & Tikka (pearl ones being my favourite 🙂 ) to a wedding ceremony and these pieces of jewels actually made me stand out of the crowd. I wore a simple pink churidaar with deep back and no work which not only highlighted my jewellery but aslo added elegance and style to my overall look.
First Look – Churidaar
I wore a simple pink & gold brocade churidaar and made soft wavy curls. For knowing how to get these curls you can go through my previous posts. I kept my jewelry to minimum by wearing Pearl chandbaali maang tikka and similar pattern earrings. Completed my look with a gold shimmer clutch and pearl bracelet. I kept this look simple yet elegant, which highlighted my beautiful jewels. This look is perfect for those days when you do not want to carry heavy outfits yet look gorgeous among the crowd. 😉
Second Look – Floor Length Anarkali
During the past few seasons, the trend of Floor Length Anarkali suits have become favourite ethnic wear of many!! Whether you’re a bridesmaid or a bride, in any one of the various wedding functions you ll definitely wear this. Previously lehengas and sarees were the only options for weddings. With the emergence of the anarkali suit and sexy anarkali neck designs, it is now easy to fuse fashion and comfort. Moreover, they also give an impression of a long flowing gown. I chose a net fabric floor length anarkali with heavy mirror embroidery on its neck and golden borders. As it had mirror work only on its neck, my jewels perfectly matched with its design. You can try this overall look on any of the occasions whether during festivals, pooja, marriage ceremonies or any social gatherings.
Third look – Net Saree with 2 layer Mathapatti
I am sure you all must have seen Bollywood divas flaunting this double layered Pearl Mathapati not only with traditional outfits but also with Indo- western outfits!! But were you inspired enough to style it with your own outfits? If not, here is how you can style it!! I styled it with my net saree with golden sequins. The gold sequined border on the saree gives quite a traditional edge to the otherwise contemporary look and the bright pink color adds gracefulness to the overall look. I took a very light and elegant mathapatti which had double pearl layers and a stone pendant. Styling a heavy Mathapatti can go over board as a little heavy side will give it a bridal look!! This piece of jewel with Pearl Chandbaalis gave me a complete stunning look.
This wedding season, try different looks according to occasions and do not forget to style yourself. Try to add something unique, every time you dress up and flaunt it with confidence!!
Don’t forget to tell me how you liked this post! And let me know which look as per you was the best of all!
Love you all :*
