Accessories are true stars that complete and accentuate your look. The addition or omission of a necklace or earrings can enhance or ruin the best of outfits. So, it’s essential for you to pair your OOTDs with the right jewellery this Puja. My Kolkata brings you five different aesthetics for the five festivity-packed days of Durga Puja.
Start off the Puja festivities with Indian wear and pair it with these delicately crafted silver jewellery. Be it striking shoulder dusters or even a choker, these pieces are unique and have the power to take your Sashthi look to the next level. If you’re in the mood to look OTT, style your pieces of jewellery just like Coco Ballucci has here. Wear a long necklace with a choker and accentuate your neckline. Having an heirloom charm, these pieces are versatile, having the power to pair well even with western looks.
Reserve Saptami for all your western fits. From dresses, pantsuits, jumpsuits to crop tops, corsets and more, these delicate and minimalistic pieces will pair beautifully with them. They’re a no-brainer and their effortless vibe will complement your indie and bohemian looks with ease. Pick from chokers, necklaces, rings, danglers and even statement cuffs that will add oomph to your look. The gold colour is on trend, making them a staple even in your everyday-wear wardrobe.
Ashtami is the celebration of tradition and heritage, and with that comes the need to look your best in traditional wear. We’re sure you’ve already picked out a regal sari for the day, but why not take that look up a notch with this hand painted hairpin. Painted in the style of patachitra, this hairpin is a showstopper. Wear your hair in a low bun and add this to your look — absolute perfection!
On Navami, adorn Afghan jewellery — a look unlike any other. These chunky pieces of jewellery have an edge to them, making them the star of your look. Keep your outfit minimal and let these pieces shine. Be it a sari or even a white shirt with jeans, Afghan jewellery is always a great choice to complete your look.
The last day of the celebration must be grand! And what better way than to get ready for the day than with these pieces? The marriage of cloth and metal creates this indo-western neckpiece that you can wear with a salwar suit, sari or even a dress. It is one-of-a-kind, because not only can it be worn as a necklace but also an armlet.
