Go gold for a chic party look
Gold jewellery has, for many years, been associated with everything traditional. It is a must-have for all the important occasions like engagements, weddings and religious functions. For weddings, gold jewellery is one of the most important parts of the bridal trousseau, especially in South India.
However, times are slowly changing with more brides giving gold jewellery a complete miss during their weddings. Young brides are increasingly opting for simple and no-frills wedding ceremonies.
But interestingly, gold is now becoming the preferred accessory for modern, chic outfits. Non-traditional designs like arm bands, signature rings, ear drops and layered neck pieces are a big hit in the party circuit. Read on to know more about pairing up gold accessories with modern outfits.
Neck pieces: Chunky gold neck pieces add to the beauty of any gown or party wear. Light makeup, a single necklace and the dress is all you need to shine at any social event. Pick a neck piece that is either a single chain or in multiple rows. Or mix-and-match a long gold chain with chunky necklaces.
Keeping the young party-going crowd in mind, many jewellers like Jos Alukkas have come out with stunning gold neck pieces that will look good with modern, chic outfits.
Statement gold rings: Gold rings go very well with modern outfits. Accessorise your
dress with statement rings to get a very chic and unique look. Match layered gold rings with a tank dress, upping its style quotient without looking cluttered.
Cuffs and bracelets: The ideal accessories for a halter dress or top would be gold cuffs or a stack of bracelets. Cuffs and bracelets are also available with precious gemstones incorporated in them. Bracelets will add that much-needed accent while not drawing away attention from the halter neck.
Cuffs also go well with one-shoulder dresses. You could wear a bold cuff on the wrist facing the shoulder strap. This will give a beautiful touch to the one-shoulder outfit.
Statement earrings: Gold earrings go very well with strapless dresses and gowns. If you are attending a function in a strapless gown, team it up with heavy gold earrings to look like a million bucks. Pairing a little black dress with statement gold teardrop earrings is also a good idea. One can go for colorful gold and gem chandelier earrings as well.
With these pointers, you are all set for your next party. Experiment with bold bangles, delicate diamond-studded hair embellishments and more to create your own unique style.
