Like a princess – Ethnic wear in lush jewel tones

It’s time for a little decadence with ethnics in deep, jewel tones. Indulge in emerald greens, ruby reds, and sapphire blues to feel like royalty yourself. Here are the different elements that you can mix and match to create your own signature look.

Ethnic wear in jewel tones

Kurtas and Kurtis
Traditional tunics in deep, gem-like shades are perfect for Indian festivals and celebrations when teamed with loads of jewellery and flashy footwear. You can try pairing yours with flared skirts, metallic-tinged footwear, and minimal jewellery for a simple, elegant look.

Churidars and leggings
Wear these with kurtas in contrasting shades and heavy embroidery for a dramatic effect. You can also infuse a dose of colour into your ensemble by contrasting these with simple white or black kurtas. Accessorise the look with simple leather footwear and a bag.

Salwar suits
Deep, contrasting shades and embellishments make these look festive anytime. You can either bling them up with heavy jewellery and accessories, or tone it down with simple metallic sandals, clutches and jewellery. Either way it’s elegant.

Accessories
Simple, minimalist jewellery or dramatic pieces can be used to lend the right hint of glam to the ensemble. You can also use metallic watches or crystal studded ones instead of bracelets or bangles. Clutches, purses, and potlis in shades of gold, silver, and bronze will always be a hit. You can opt for heavily beaded sandals or a simple strappy number to complete the look.
