Every Indian girl’s traditional look seems incomplete without proper accessories. They add a bit of poise and finesse to her overall look. Jhumkas are one such traditional accessory that surely is a fashion must-have in every girl’s collection. These are a pair of earrings which have an antique yet trendy look, and have intricate motifs, patterns and designs.
There are several kinds of jhumkas- hoops, the casual trinket, the half jhumka and many more. Jhumkas can make a strong (never-fading) fashion statement, if you can understand how to style them, correctly. So, here are a few tips:
Jhumkas can enhance one’s look if worn correctly according to the facial profile. For a person with round face, it is best to go for something that is longer and slenderer and has a lower balloon-like roundness. While girls’ with thinner and longer face should go for the round or circular ones, with lots of motifs and appliqués. The asymmetrical bell jhumkas would look particularly well on round face.
It is always best to choose a jhumka according to the dress and the occasion. Variety of sizes and shapes of jhumkas are available in the market like the hoops, half moon, the umbrella or casual trinket. A heavily studded jhumka paired with jeans and t-shirt will be much of a fashion faux-pas as a small jhumka paired with a gorgeous saree. Half split loops will match perfectly with a cool kurta top, while simple hoops will look good with jeans and top.
If it is a night party choose a jhumka with lots of bling, but for a simple office party, go for a simple jhumka with some arts and appliqués. Jhumkas are available in every possible shade, colour and designs; it won’t be difficult to find one according to your choice. The pyramidal design should go well during wedding ceremonies while casual trinket should be ideal for office hours.
Jhumkas are very versatile. You do not always need to carry it the way everybody does. You can get creative and try something new like using it as a maang teeka or even as hangings for your bangles. It definitely takes the glamour quotient higher. If you are confident about your sense of style, then whatever experiments you do, it will never look odd.
