If you believe that traditional gold, silver, and kundan jewellery can only be worn with ethnic clothes like sarees, lehengas, and anarkalis, you are completely mistaken. That's correct ladies, you don't have to save your expensive jewellery for weddings. You may also wear them with casual western clothes. Combining traditional jewellery with western clothes is an emerging trend with Bollywood's style divas choosing for a fusion appearance by wearing kundan necklaces, chandbalis, maang tikkas, and kamarbandhs with western ensembles.
The key is to match the correct jewellery to the right clothing. Here are a few pointers on how to master the skill of pairing traditional jewellery with western outfits:
Blend with necklace:
A kundan necklace looks best when worn with ethnic clothes, but they may also be worn with western costumes with a little care. For a head-turning appearance, pair them with beautiful gowns, especially neck-baring off-shoulder dresses and tiny black dresses. You can keep the look minimal by not adding earrings. Wear a silver coin necklace with a maxi dress or a long, flowing skirt for a chic boho appearance. You can also pair it with a formal shirt and trouser for a more refined look.

Statement earrings to enhance your appearance:
Every lady has at least one pair of statement jhumkas and baalis in her jewellery box which she most likely only wears to weddings and family occasions. A beautiful set of earrings can brighten up even the most basic clothing. Jhumkas can also be worn with a jumpsuit. Alternatively, go beyond the box and pin it to your hair to turn it into a stunning hair item. Your favourite jhumkas and baalis may and should be worn with western outfits.
Are you trying to figure out how to wear your mother's gold kada without seeming like you're going to a huge large Indian wedding? So, here's a thought. You can wear gold bangles with a day outfit instead of with sarees, anarkalis, or lehengas. Wear them all together or just one cuff or bracelet. Wear a dainty gold necklace to complete the outfit. To allow your bangles to do the talking, choose a solid-coloured dress, preferably one in a lighter hue.
A Kamarbandh is one of the most attractive pieces of jewellery a lady may wear. It creates a unique statement in a way that no other item can. Although they are most commonly worn with lehengas and low-waisted sarees, they will look great with low-waisted jeans or a skirt and crop top. It's also suitable for wearing with fitting maxi gowns.
Anklets are a great way to spice up cropped jeans, cut-off shorts, and even cocktail dresses. Ankle bracelets, which look best with sandals and stilettos, are one of the simplest methods to make your footwear appear more beautiful. Finding a stylish anklet to match your boyfriend-style jeans is no longer a challenge.
Make a big statement this festive season by mixing the East with the West. An important point is that your dress should be understated, with no bold designs or colours, so that the jewellery can stand out. So what are you waiting for, take out those stunning pieces of jewellery that have been languishing in your jewellery box for far too long and wear them in confidence.
