With wedding season on, it is time to put your stylish foot forward. While traditional Indian dresses like saree, lehenga, and Anarkali suits are ideal, the younger generation is more comfortable with western or fusion dresses. However, if you wish to shine like a star even when dressed in western attire, then teaming it up with traditional jewelry is the best and the easiest way to get that done.

If you wish to up your styling game, here are toptips to wear traditional jewelry:

Pair a statement oxidized silver necklace with a western dress for a stunning look

Statement necklaces with stunning centerpieces go extremely well with floral tops, skater dresses, elegant maxi, or an embroidered cape. A crop top and flowing skirt with a statement piece in silver can complete your boho-chic look. Though all that glitters is gold, not everyone is a fan of the yellow metal. If you love silver or oxidized silver jewelry, you can pair some of your fabulous pieces with a plain white shirt or jacket to create a statement. These oxidized silver jewellery will definitely compliment your beauty with a touch of antiques. Silver danglers or Victorian earrings also go perfectly with formal shirts. For an OTT look you can use a complete set (earrings, bangles, necklace, ring) to offset your simple dress.
