Tribal Trends

Traditions are what tie people together. A tradition is a shared experience that connects us to the human race. There is more to accessorizing than simply matching an outfit. Tribal fashions are on the rise, and it’s no wonder why. Decorating ourselves w

ith layered strands of beads, large wooden blocks and exaggerated dangling chains makes us feel connected to to tradition– to our ancestors. Those looks of years gone by have stood the test of time.  So we embrace them today and will carry them through to tomorrow.

Let’s explore a few of the elements that can give jewelry that tribal feel:

Materials

Dyed bone helps us feel grounded and in tune with our instincts. Oxidized silver, wood and shells help us feel closer to the Earth. All metals are precious and a gift of honor in ancient societies.

Symbols

Om_Symbol

Certain symbols of peace and hope are easily identified across many cultures. The Om is an example of one of these universal symbols.

Colors

Colors like black, white and silver are wonderfully offset by bright red. These are timeless color choices that have been used in tribal jewelry since the very beginnings of civilization, because these colors are commonly found in nature (in the form of ebony, seashell, metal and coral).

Whatever your style, whatever your reason for wearing the tribal trend, choose accessories that make you feel strong and proud!

Revealing the Layering secrets

Layering necklaces is one of our favorite trends at the moment.

Try out these chic necklaces to get the look!

5 simple rules for statement fashion!

The term “statement” is one of the most oft-heard (and maybe slightly overused) words in fashion, whether it’s via an email subject line that promises “10 Statement Necklaces To Fall In Love With” or coming out of your own mouth when talking to a friend about what to wear tomorrow night. “Statement piece” is todays buzzword for sure!

 What better way to do so than to complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing piece of statement jewellery?

Statement pieces are designed for you to have fun with, but can make all the wrong statements if they are not worn correctly.

Here are 5 simple rules to get the statement piece fashion right!

1. Less is more

Bold pieces should be allowed to stand out, so do not over-crowd your look by wearing them within close proximity of each other.

2. Keep it simple

Big accessories are best worn with simple clothes. Steer clear of busy patterns and embellishments such as sequins when wearing bold jewelry.

3. Choose earrings wisely

When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Also make sure that your make-up balances well with your earrings. If you are wearing a brightly coloured pair, they may look best with clean and simple makeup.

4. Adorn your arms tastefully

Cuff bracelets are an excellent choice if you want to wear a statement piece. To show yours off, keep your arms bare or wear a cuff over a slim-fitting one colour long sleeve top. Stick to one cuff to create a focal point.

5. Wear pieces that create an outfit

Remember that statement pieces are supposed to make – you guessed it – a statement, so choose pieces that help to create an over-all outfit. If you are going for a prim and polished look, opt for pearls . Vintage or floral pieces will look beautiful with a romantic and feminine outfit, while colourful beads are a must if you are going for a boho look.

TREND ALERT: STATEMENT EARRINGS

So you’re not into the whole ear cuff trend, but you want something more dramatic than diamond studs in your ears as you walk down the street/red carpet/aisle? ENTER STATEMENT EARRINGS.

Set aside all those statement necklaces you’ve been hoarding and get excited for this new accessory to look out for. They’ve been all over the Spring 2015 runways.They add just the right amount of drama to an outfit. And if you’re having a particularly bad hair day, tie your hair up into a bun, don a pair of statement earrings and watch how no one notices your crazy mane.

In this post we are going to help you realize the importance of a pair of statement earrings in your treasure box by showing you different ways to pair them up.

  • STREET STYLE:Wear your statement earrings with a minimalist look. Pair a basic blazer, ripped jeans, an envelope clutch, and sleek heels to add a level of sophistication. Remember it is always best to keep the rest of your outfit simple when you are wearing a statement piece.And if you feel that the high end 4statement pieces aren’t for you then this is a jewelry trend the highstreet does particularly well using plastic, crystal or glass alternatives that look equally as elegant and on trend.
  • 1WEDDING STYLE :A sparkly pair is a more traditional way to make a statement.When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Remember, it’s all about balance, so while you can pump up the volume with simple earrings, larger ones will balance better with loose waves or poker-straight hair.
  • WORK STYLE:The easiest way to nail the ‘Office look’ with statement earrings would be to ‘Keep it simple’.Pair a very contemporary(preferably geometric cut) statement earring with any casual work attire and refrain from wearing any other piece of jewellery to be a hit!2
  • NIGHT OUT :A Little Black Dress (LBD) is one of the most versatile and stylish pieces a woman can own.They also act as the best canvas to try out bold jewelry.So, pick a big and bold pair. Dangly, Hoops, or Studs can all work, as long as they make a statement. This is not the time for anything dainty, and remember to wear your hair up to make the earrings known.

So, now you ladies are well equipped and know how to get out and be your own ‘SHINING ARMOUR’!

SUIT YOURSELF UP FOR RAKSHA BANDAN!

Remember how he looked lovingly at you with twinkling eyes while you prayed for his wellbeing with your puja thali on this raksha bandhan ? Amidst all the laughter and gathering, those glittering diyas, you tied a beautiful rakhee on wrist with utmost care and those moments of mischief when he happily ate the entire sweet that you stuffed in his mouth. Yes he is your brother dearest who unconditionally pulls you out of the shallow and brings a smile on your face, no matter how far he is from you. The emotional bond between a brother and his sister is truly inexplicable and calls for a massive celebration full of love, colour, laughter and lots of jewellery! In this post we are going to help you pick out jewellery that you can wear on the auspicious day to look elegant and paint a pretty picture!

  • CHUNKY EARRINGS: If your height is equal to that of the current fashion standard and besides, you can boast of having a fine swan neck, don’t hesitate to wear long dangling earrings. They look especially good in a company of smooth hair. If, in contrast you are petite and not too high, your friends are small earrings that will not look like weights on you. Chunky “button” earrings especially with a gem are fabulous on a plump lady with lush hair-style.
  • NECKLACES : Choose a few Heritage designs in Kundan, Navaratna or AD. Give variety by selecting a few long necklaces with grand pendants and the one or two in choker style to get a royale feel. Primary colors like red, green, and violet will be safe bets to match with any silks. Contrasting colors with outfits will lend versatility to these heavy jewelleries and make a fashion statement. Replacing your grandmother’s heirloom gold jewelry with fashion jewelry options will let you go bling without the security sting!
  • ANTIQUE BRACELET: Antique holds its own charm! You can wear antique bracelet even with your causal jeans and you will still look as much stylish as you already are. Antique bracelet is most popularly worn with anarkalis, suits or sarees! But try flaunting it with your western as well Indo-fusion look. Earning compliments is guaranteed.
  • MAANGTIKA: Another traditional piece, which still have not got as much attention from Indian women as it deserves. Believe us! You can wear maangtikas to even a casual outing whether wearing suits, sarees or a dress. It needs not to be adhered to only wedding functions. Own one!
  • ANKLETS: Anklet is a staple jewel piece in the treasure of any women. However, anklets are most popularly be worn by every woman now. Silver anklets are used to be quite popular but golden as well as fancy anklets are trending a lot these days. Choose variety of options to own in your anklet collection. Flaunt your anklets wherever you move!
  • VINTAGE RINGS: Finger rings add a touch of elegance to women’s hands! Go for antique ones to feel the charm of tradition that can be carried forward to the next generation as well. This makes antique ring a must have in your jewel treasure.
  • RAKHEES: Last but not the least, what is rakshabandhan without rakhees? Rakhees can be found in various styles ranging from funky to chic and traditional. They are even found in 22carat gold these days! Apart from them, they can be paired well with any traditional clothes to match!

So, if you’re a caring brother, go and get your sister the most magnificent jewellery, because she is the one who always prays for your well-being in good and rough times. So enjoy this Raksha Bandhan day with your sister to the fullest!

HAPPY RAKSHA BANDHAN!

     Must have pieces for parties!

Do you love parties, but you’re not really sure how to dress up for one? What if you are shy and just want to make a good first impression? Not to worry –we are here to your rescue!
Buying and owning jewelry is one of the best perks of being a girl, so it’s our accessory-loving duty to tell you what sparkly essentials you need in your jewelry box. And while we encourage you to indulge in any jewel trend of the moment, we’ve made a list of the top 10 pieces of jewelry every woman should own to stun at a party:

  • hMUST HAVE #1 –  Long earrings

 Mostly reserved for evenings or events, these will again make a statement and finish your look, and make your face pop.

  • MUST HAVE #2 –A Menswear-Inspired Watchw1
    Besides keeping you punctual, a great menswear-inspired watch is the perfect way to ground your girly jewelry.Invest in one that looks like it could be shared with either your boyfriend or even your grandpa, with a slightly bigger face and either a metallic or leather strap.
  • MUST HAVE #3 – A Strand Of Pearls
    We love how this never-out-of-style piece can top off a ladylike look and make it feel exquisitely sophisticated and classic. Worn with a simple black dress, a strand of pearls is always a sweet choice. It should work on its own and be neither too short nor too long. Think: Breakfast at Tiffany’s!
  • MUST HAVE #4 – Large Metallic Hoops
    Sometimes, a simple hoop can add just the right amount of interest to your look, particularly when your hair is pulled off your face. A thinner hoop that is larger than a silver dollar manages to feel both festive and feminine.
  • MUST HAVE #5 – Diamond studs

        Marilyn Monroe declared with a lot of conviction “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. We couldn’t agree more. Diamond         studs are expensive but they are totally worth the investment you are making. On days when you aren’t really sure               what to wear, you’ll find diamond earrings are almost always appropriate.

  • MUST HAVE #6 – The Cuff Bracelet

          Add sizzle to your wrist year-round with a sleek cuff bracelet. Wear a cuff (or two) to feel like the superhero you are.             We especially love them paired with something sleek—like a longer sheath dress or even a pencil skirt and corset                look.

  • pMUST HAVE #7 – A Right-Hand Ring
    Since your left hand is reserved for more serious jewelry (like wedding bands or grandma’s old ruby ring), think of your right hand as a place to play. Go for something that is stackable,colorful, or oversized, and that can ideally be worn on your pointer or middle finger for impact.
  • MUST HAVE #8 – Something Rock ‘n’ Roll
    Rock ‘n’ rollers have long since defined our love of studs,chains, spikes, and tough symbols. Use a piece you love, like pyramid stud earrings or a leather cuff, to offset the sweetness of a feminine floral dress or add an unexpected touch to a more conservative suit.
  • MUST HAVE #9 – Gold and Silver Studss
    While you wont be making any huge fashion statements with a simple stud, they are essential to finish a look. We love a domed ball for versatility but like a pyramid stud, bar, or shape, like a heart or star, too. These little metallic must-haves are best worn when either your necklace or bracelets are making the statement.
  • MUST HAVE #10 – A Locket
    A vintage-inspired locket can provide character and interest to almost any outfit. We love it thrown on with a casual tee and jeans, but this old-fashioned treasure will also make a modern dress look even cooler.

While a jewelry box brimming with beautiful baubles is nice, chances are you won’t even wear most of the pieces in there —if you can even remember that you have them.So now ladies, you have your very own personalised list of must-haves to get that party started!Go on and shine like a star!

        LIVE IN BLOOM

As thoughts of cooler weather approach, most people turn their thoughts from bold, fun accessories to heavy, warm layers. But, just because the temperatures drop, doesn’t mean your fashion style has to hibernate too!

So, what type of accessory is perfect for Fall or Winter? For a sophisticated, but still on trend look this season, floral designs are actually the way to go. As seen all over the New York Fashion Week runways this year, this beautiful pattern is going to be one of the most popular as we head into cooler temps.526606_570x0

Flowers as jewels on your mehendi, are now more of a norm rather than an exception and while it may have started with the usual white flowers as a maang tikka , floral jewellery has gone a whole new level of cool ever since!

Though floral is seen as the perfect spring-summer theme, when it comes to jewelry, one thinks more long term. The well-designed flower motif goes perfectly with both the traditional sari and an evening gown. The rest of the work can be done by making the jewel flexible and choosing the right apparel while donning the piece.

The contemporary outlook has seen floral jewelry getting smarter with irresistible combinations of colors, styles,designs and  materials used. From pearls to precious colored stones to desi polka and enamelling, there are myriad asymmetrical rounds, half rounds, ovals and spheres are trends in jewelry to give modernity to traditional symmetrical shapes.

Apart from featuring just at weddings, floral designs have trickled their way into the big screen and we get to see the illustrious First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama to our very own Superstar Aishwarya Rai adorn beautifully crafted floral designs below:

Indians believe that your “prana” or “life force” must be in balance in order for you to stay healthy. All of the paths of your “prana” run down to your toes, so the idea that a marital symbol could double up as a reproductive enhancer is not a big stretch.
Scientifically, Silver being a good conductor, it also absorbs the energy from the polar energies from the earth and passes it to the body, thus refreshing whole body system.Toe rings can really make an outfit sparkle . Beautiful wrapped toe rings in gold and sterling silver, gem toe rings, double toe rings, and illusion toe rings are all over the place this season.

5Toe rings are available in many styles to suit your taste in body jewelry. Look for shiny gold rings decorated with crystals, shimmery silver toe rings with tribal engravings and sets of stackable stainless steel toe rings. They  feature anything from birthstones, to solid metal, to nautical charms, and more. In the summer you will want to keep these accessories lightweight and simple with bright colored accents. Fantastic and valuable jewelry is an investment, so it’s important to know how to show it off. Use these tips to show off all of your favorite body jewelry stylishly.

Choose the right shoes:Toe rings look good with flip-flops, but there are many other shoe styles that will showcase fun fashion jewelry. Peep-toe pumps offer a cute retro style to a dress or a pair of shorts. Wear toe rings with peep-toe pumps to add just a dash of daring fashion to an outfit.
