Bangles are an indispensable part of a girl’s wardrobe. And if you happen to be someone like me, who has different set of bangles and bracelets with all her dresses, then well you will understand
Somehow bangles are back in vogue like never before! And what coerced me into writing this entire researched piece on bangles is Kareena Kapoor and her fascination with bangles
During Bodyguard Movie promotions, Kareena was seen sporting different kind of bangles with her Kurtis, Patialas and Suits! And to be honest it looked simply fab!
No matter what you wear…..Be it ethnic wears like a Patiala with Kurti or a Bandhni or Harems or Jodhpuri pants or even if you are a complete western strictly ‘Tee and Jeans’ girl, Bangles are for everyone! If you can mix and match well, an array of bangles can enhance your look like nothing else!
Bangles are best of all the accessories, provided you get it right! How to?? Read ON!
Classic pieces that will always be in vogue can become boring if one wears those again and again. So, a little mixture is always better. Experiment with pearls, metals, layers, crystals, even glass (this is strictly for those who can carry it off well ) different shapes- or a combination of these to get that perfect styling of bangles. Huge, colourful and bold pieces that stand out are in fashion! Oversize bracelets, large wooden block pieces, jangle of a bunch of bangles – all these are in FASHION!
No I am not talking about those old traditional gold metal bangles here
The trend today is rather new and quite classy! Try out lightweight, large in size bangles that are available in range of colours. One colour over-sized irregularly cut bangles give you a fuller look if that is what you are looking for.
If not try out array of wooden bangles together, as much as they go with checked shirts and Denims, they look equally good with a Kurti and Churidar!
Must have in your wardrobe: Over-sized Black wooden bangle…..it goes with almost everything!
These are as hot as ever!
‘Compact ones’ say a dozen of them packed together look simply vow!! Again this is something you need to carry off well..If you want something toner, go for the same color bunch or else multi-colors look classy! Mind you at times to wear layered bangles, you’ll have to choose your clothes instead of choosing bangles for the outfit They look really good with Kurtis teamed with Churidar and Patialas and even Harems!
Must have in your wardrobe: Dozen of multi-colored bangles…..they are for all seasons!
Not fond of Indian attire..used to Jeans and Tee-Shirts??
Bracelets complementing western look! Either wear a single bracelet with jeans and tee or even a couple of them say wooden or metal ones look quite good! The more bracelets you have on your wrist the more fashionable they will look. Plenty of thin and not very thin bangles look nice together. Square bangles are definitely a new trend that will come up in a big way very soon. They look trendy, cool and attractive at the same go!
Must have in your wardrobe : Wooden Block single pieces and crystal bracelets!
This is my personal favorite (I recently picked up 8 dozen of them together )
Not a big fan of Gold..?? It’s absolutely fine Silver is back in fashion big time!
Sterling silver bangles look exceptionally well with bright colored Kurtis. Wear one piece if you want to keep it light but a dozen together equally looks good if not better! Oxidized Black Silver Bangles are quite the in thing today. Mix and match with thread bangles according to the colors that suit you!
Half a dozen plain oxidized silver bangles coupled with thread bangles are the near perfect match! Thread bangles and silver bangles together will rarely go wrong!
Must have in your wardrobe: Black oxidized silver bangles!
Okay this one is not everyone’s cup of tea
And not everyone is fond of it too! But glass bangles look vow if you are dressing up in complete Indian wear.
They have a certain ethnic look that nothing can match up to! A plain Kurti teamed with dozen of glass bangles on your wrist (the same color as your dupatta) is just the perfect combo!
Must have in your wardrobe : Dozen of red glass bangles..they are ethnic, traditional and classy at the same time!
Thread Bangles will never go wrong with Indian wear…..NEVER (trust me )
Mix and match the colors..a dozen same as the color of your Kurti with two three in between that match the color of your Patiala or churidar! Red, Yellow, Green, Blue are the most common colors. And ya thread bangles complement crape Dupattas and Bandhni like nothing else!
Go for Multi-colored thread bangles with printed Kurtis and Patialas (as shown in the pic on your right)!
Must have in your wardrobe : Dozen of thread bangles each set of different colors!
