With wedding season around the corner, the ultimate dilemma of what to wear to a wedding is here again. Between the wedding staple of a brightly-coloured silk saree, the chic pastel chiffons and crepes, the classic lehngas and anarkalis and the in-vogue cocktail gown, you are spoilt for choice. Add to that the perfect accessories complimenting your face and you’ll definitely be the best dressed woman, next to the bride.
While you are trying out jewellery to wear to that wedding, do you notice how something that looked stunning on the store shelf does not really look good on you? Well, that is because you haven’t picked your jewellery based on your face shape. Remember that your face can be highlighted not only by flawless make-up, but also by carefully chosen jewellery pieces that go with your ensemble and your face shape.
A gorgeous silk saree
The go-to staple of all Indian women, a handloom silk saree in bright colours is a classic choice. Be it the brocade of a Benarasi, the weaving of a Sonepuri or the zari of a Kanjeevaram, a saree looks good on everyone. High-cut blouses with long sleeves act as a foil to the bright colours of the saree. To accentuate the look, oval or round shaped earrings and long necklaces with matching pendants look good on women with an oval face. Those with heart-shaped faces can pick chokers and long earrings in curvy designs. If you have a diamond or triangle-shaped face, choose danglers and chokers in coloured stones.
A Pastel Saree in Crepe or Chiffon
For those who love the saree but are not too comfortable with heavy silks, pastel-coloured sarees in lighter materials like chiffon, crepe or georgette are life-savers. Elegant and glamorous, these sarees mark you as a trendsetter. Low-cut strappy blouses set off these sarees beautifully. If you have an oval face, pick oval or round-shaped drop earrings or diamond studs with a matching pendant. Those with diamond or triangle-shaped faces will look stunning in larger hoops along with short necklaces and matching pendants.
A Contemporary Lehnga or Anarkali
The ultimate sartorial choice for anyone who wants to wear Indian but does not want to take the effort to wear a saree is the Lehnga or Anarkali. These provide the look of a traditional dress along with the variety of modern dressing. They come in many different styles, colours and cuts and can even be customized to suit your design preferences. If you have a round face, pick long dangler earrings along with long necklaces. Women with square faces can wear danglers or hoops with soft and rounded designs and matching necklaces. Those with heart-shaped faces can opt for chokers if they want a gorgeous look or an exclusive pendant on a short chain if they want to keep it simpler.
The Timeless Cocktail Dress
Tired of the same old traditional apparel? A modish cocktail gown can come to your rescue if you want to try something new for the next wedding you are invited to. A long cocktail dress in bright wedding colours like emerald green, royal blue or bridal red can look fabulous with stilettos or kitten heels and a small clutch. Women with narrow faces can wear curvy danglers in pearls or round stones and matching chokers or short necklaces to highlight your cheekbones. If you have a heart shaped face, then wear danglers in diamonds or coloured stones and a matching neckpiece to set off your dress.
Once you decide what jewellery will best enhance your face, pick the perfect accessories to match your dress. A simple purse to offset the gorgeous jewellery from www.titan.co.in and a matching pair of heels and voila! You will be the cynosure of all eyes at every wedding you go to.
