The best thing about jewelry is versatility. Most of the pieces you buy are like perfect investments for your wardrobe. A dress may have its shelf life but a piece of jewelry can last you a lifetime. As creators and connoisseurs of jewelry, we know how integral a piece is in our wardrobe. Jewelry is used not only to add the perfect finishing touches to your outfit but also as a feel good factor. What’s even better is that a piece of jewelry can be always used with various kinds of outfits to create a new look every time you adorn it.
In the spotlight is Mamta Gupta. Founder, Zariin. We’ve seen Mamta pick her favourite pieces every season and her loyalty to those piece shows through as she styles those pieces with various outfits through the season.
STATEMENT NECKLACE WORN TWO WAYS
Mamta has a flair for necklaces and you’ll mostly catch her adorning the statement ones. Statement necklaces are indeed one of the easiest jewelry items to make an impact. Mamta takes us through two of her favourite looks which are also very true to her own style using one of her favourite necklaces from the Sultana collection – Theodora Glamour Necklace. She styles the statement necklace with a printed dress and takes it to another level with a classic LBD.
LOOK 1 – PRINTED DRESS
The necklace is bold with bright pops of colour and the dress talks the same language with its print and colour. It’s a powerful complementary look with a very strong sense of personal style as prints and the choice of jewelry are great ways to impose your own style language. The V-neck of the dress is just the right necklace for the statement necklace to fall beautifully and the playful character of the look makes it a good day wear option. The look will put the spotlight on you!
LOOK 2 – LITTLE BLACK DRESS
The Little Black Dress is a wardrobe staple and if you are looking for a formal evening worthy look- the dress is best accessorised with a big bold statement piece that gives it a personal twist. With a gorgeous neckline that falls low- a cascading necklace is the perfect match making the look a great evening option. A look that will make heads turn!
DROP EARRINGS WORN TWO WAYS
Drop earrings make another great versatile option. These frame your face and enhance your features. Pearls add a formal element to the earrings making it just the right option with your work wear and pearls being essentially Indian also work well with Indian ethnic prints. Personally, Mamta’s closet is a good mix of work wear and Indian silhouettes and prints. She therefore, looks for pieces that can translate from one look to another.
LOOK 1 – STRIPED SHIRT FOR WORK
A striped shirt is a classic all working women own in their wardrobes. It’s formal and can be styled in various ways. Taking it a notch higher are these pearl drop earrings which dress up the look and since most of the meetings revolve around the fashion industry, the drops add the right leverage to the outfit.
LOOK 2 – INDIAN ETHNIC PRINT
Drop earrings are one of the most preferred options to adorn Indian wear and pearls further enhance the elegance of the outfits. The earrings work as well with Indian wear as with a striped shirt labelling it as a versatile must-have as Indian women are forever looking for accessories that justify their multi-faceted wardrobes.
CHOKER WORN 2 WAYS
The big trend of the moment – Chokers spell powerful and can give a strong spin to any outfit. One of Mamta’s clear favourites from the season – we’ve seen her adorn this piece of jewelry with just so many outfits and no wonder because of their high fashion appeal. The choker can instantly add a spark to any outfit and the silver plated option is a subtle take. Mamta styles hers with an on point wrap dress and translates into another look by wearing it with a bright yellow kurta.
LOOK 1- WRAP DRESS
An easy wrap dress Mamta sourced during one of her travels, is a personal closet favourite. The overlapping v-neck of the dress is balanced to perfection with the choker. A chic dress can be made casual or dressy with the choice of accessories styled with it and the choker defines the look as power dressing done right.
LOOK 2 – ELEGANT KURTA
The classic kurta can be smartened up with a choker. It is indeed one of our favourite Indian wear looks because the addition of choker leaves one feeling all proper and powerful. The fit of the accessory works wonderfully against the easy flow of the kurta.
