8 Ways To Wear Traditional Jewellery With Western Outfits

Wearing traditional gold and kundan jewellery with sarees, lehengas or anarkalis is so passé. Unexpected pairing is the new diktat ruling the fashion scene. The trend these days is to opt for a fusion look by pairing traditional jewellery with western outfits. Given below are some tips on how you can pull this off.

1. Gold Necklace:

Add some bling to your LBD by pairing it with a gold choker or a long gold necklace. You can also team it with a crisp white shirt and cropped trousers for an office party. Our Pretty Woman surely aces this look!

2. Kundan and Polki Jewellery:

There’s no denying that kundan jewellery looks stunning with traditional dresses. But it looks equally beautiful when worn with western outfits such as a short dress, a long gown, jumpsuit or skirt. Look at our Bollywood divas rocking the look.

3. Silver Coin Necklace:

Earrings are undoubtedly the first love of any girl. Even the simplest outfit can be perked up with a gorgeous pair of earrings.  Take cue from our fashion lady Sonam Kapoor on how to team it up with western outfits. You can also wear jhumkas with a jumpsuit.  Or, think outside the box and pin it to your hair to transform it into a fabulous hair accessory.

5. Maang Tika:

6. Kamar Bandh:

A kamarbandh is usually worn with saree or lehenga. But you can accentuate your western outfit with a simple chain or a two-layered kamarbandh. Or you can also wear a chain kamarbandh with jeans for a Bohemian look. Doesn’t Riri look just smashing?

7. Gold Bangles:

Wondering how to wear your mother’s gold kada without looking like you’re headed to a big fat Indian wedding? Well, here’s an idea. Instead of wearing them with sarees, anarkalis or lehengas, you can wear gold bangles with a day dress. Either stack them up or wear a single cuff or bangle. To balance the look, wear a delicate gold necklace. Make sure your outfit is a solid-coloured one, preferably of a lighter shade, to let your bangles do the talking.

8. Payal:

If you thought a payal can be worn only with Indian outfits, think again!  It looks equally beautiful when worn with jeans, shorts or dresses.


This season, make a bold statement by blending the East with West. Take out those gorgeous pieces of jewellery that have been sitting in your jewellery box for too long, and flaunt them with panache. But one thing that you should keep in mind is that your outfit should be subtle, and not heavy on prints or colours, so that the jewellery stands out.

Have a nice day! 🙂
