Summer Wedding Ready

Indian summer wedding season is upon us, which means endless sangeet dance practice, high intake of Indian mithais and pretty outfits to purchase. Whether you are going sea side for a costal affair or travelling out of the country for a destination soiree, the right outfits and accessories are on top of everyone’s checklist.
Should you opt for an out and out heavy Indian traditional ensemble? Or maybe an Indo-western look? Or play it safe with a classic saree? While the choices are endless the weather, sadly, is the biggest hindrance of it all.  
As much as I love to adorn myself in the finest Indian silks, colourful brocades and lush embroidery, I keep all of this for the cold winter weddings. For summer weddings I prefer to keep my outfits light and fluid and glam up my look with statement jewellery and accessories. And there is nothing more glamorous than Indian jewellery. 
While planning my summer wedding looks I came across Jivaana, a delightful treasure trove of jewellery and accessories. From traditional minakari and kunda sets to chic fashion bags to trendy juttis, Jivaana is your one stop shop for all your wedding accessories. 
I was drooling over many of their pieces, but it is this Green Stone and Kundan Jewellery Set and Multicolor Navaratna Ring from Label Amara that caught my fancy. 
I love the versatility of both these pieces. The jewellery set and the ring are a fine balance of classic Indian design and contemporary aesthetics. The styling potential is endless and these pieces can easily be pair with Indian wear, Indo-Western wear as well as Western wear.
For summer weddings I prefer fusion attire. I decided to style the jewellery set and ring with a printed handkerchief hem kurta that I styled as a dress. A cool colour palette ensemble to beat the heat. The blue of the kurta and the green of the jewellery complemented each other. Adding final touches to the look with the multicolor Navaratna statement right and a dash of dark red lipstick, the look is summer wedding ready.
The beauty of this jewellery set is it can be paired with any of the wedding functions outfits as well as for other semi-formal and formal occasions. What I like about the green stone and kundan necklace is, that it can be worn two ways. Depending on the look, you can either style it with the kundan side or turn it around and style it with the minakari design. The versatility of the necklace makes it a smart investment. The green stone and pearl earrings have a very Indo-western feel to it. They can be worn with the necklace or styled individually as well. 
Other than the jewellery I was also very impressed with Jivaana’s bag collection. They have a wide array of potli bags and clutches. 
Along with jewellery and juttis if you are looking to buy clutches online and potli bags online then Jivaana is the place to shop. Their collection is well-curated and has something for every occasion and season.
