        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.
