Tassels with Mirrors
Mirrors on clothing remind one of the vibrant and colourful handicrafts of Gujarat and Rajasthan. With the popularity of Afghani-style jewellery, mirrors are back in vogue and a very unique way of incorporating them in your wardrobe is adding then as tassels to style choli-backs or as tie-ups on your ethnic skirt or ghagra.
Pompoms entered the fashion sphere as latkans and are now being used extensively on saree borders, ethnic skirts and even jewellery. If you want to sport a bohemian look on any of your pre-wedding functions, pair a lehenga choli with pompom latkan and ethnic silver jewellery.
Are you particularly fond of that rich, elite look? Don’t apprehensive about the use of tassels or latkans as latkans with pearls will go a long way in adding that touch of richness to your entire look. Pearl latkans are to be particularly paired with silk or georgette lehenga-cholis that have heavy detailing, sequin work or embellishments.
Do you think pearls will not do justice to your colourful lehenga-choli. Go for beads as they come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, textures and colours.
For an understated look with a bit of vibrancy go for fringe tassels. Use them on the border of your dupatta or saree or even as a tie-up behind your blouse.
Ghungroos are in vogue – not only in jewellery but also on clothes. You would love them as part of your ghagra if you love the soft feminine sound they make.
