The Ultimate Guide to Styling Silver Ornaments with Western Outfits

March 08, 2022 3 min read

Silver and gold have always been associated with traditional outfits, but styling silver ornaments with western outfits can create a bold and stunning ensemble that we can all get behind. Indo-western outfit paired with fine sterling silver jewelry makes a statement while showing off your creativity. But styling silver with western outfits isn’t always a smooth sailing boat, it can prove to be highly tricky.

These 6 cues will help you nail the desired look without breaking a sweat.

1. Colours

There is an array of possibilities when it comes to styling silver with colours. The general rule is to stay away from neon colours. The brightness tends to divert attention away from an intricate handcrafted silver necklace with fine detailing on the ornament. Most silver ornaments look beautiful with black, white and grey coloured outfits. When embellished with Kempu, Kundan and CZ stones, silver is best brought out by maroon, navy blue, dark green and other such dark colours by complementing them. Styling layered silver chains or standalone chains with a single pendant would enhance the look of your western wear, be it jeans, skirts or dresses.

     

2. Patterns

It is suggested that if the outfit you’re wearing is simple and subtle without prominent patterns, you can experiment with bold statement pieces of jewlery. Off-shoulder dresses or tops with a shrug would look lovely with a choker embedded with semi-precious stones. However, if the outfit has heavy patterns, then it is advised that you wear minimal silver jewelry like a pendant, a delicate bracelet or finger rings.

     

3. Formal Wear and Silver

Who said jewelry and officewear don’t go hand in hand? You’d be surprised by how well minimal silver jewelry can be styled with formal office wear. Be it pantsuits, skirts and full sleeve shirts or formal dresses, you can now style them with chunky jewelry or minimal silver jewelry to add a little bit of oomph to that office look of yours. A formal white shirt and a casual skirt with an elaborate silver necklace is yet another look you should not hesitate to pull off.

Layered necklaces, silver bracelets or silver earrings would be the perfect accessory to pair with your formal wear.

      

4. Don’t Forget to Accessorise your Ankles, Hair and Nose

Simple, delicate anklets to chunky ones, a woman sure knows her anklets. Style these anklets with jeans or palazzos to make a statement. Anklets and jeans are a trendy combination that one needs to experiment with. We’ve also seen women wearing just a single anklet to make a statement of their own. There is a trend being set almost every other day. We have seen exotic oxidized silver hair accessories being paired with trendy jeans and flowy shrugs. They are chic and highly fashionable worthy of making a statement.

      


Earlier, Nath and Rajasthani Nathni were being styled with traditional ethnic outfits only. More recently, we’ve seen an increase in demand for contemporary silver nose pins with a hint of traditional designs, motifs and styles.  But now with a little bit of contemporary touch, nose pins and nose rings are being worn even with jeans and formals without any hesitation making a bold statement while being deeply rooted in the Indian culture.

5. Traditional Jewelry with Western Wear

Pairing Kundan and Jadau silver necklaces with off-shoulder dresses is a bold move. This combination is extremely tricky to pull off. But when styled right, this look is nothing short of breathtaking. You could also try pairing a silver jhumka with semi-precious stones with your evening gowns or off-shoulder dresses.

      

Styling a western outfit with sterling silver ornaments will open up your world to a plethora of styling options. Be true to your personality and experiment with everything you can lay your hands on. Make the most of your creativity and the options available.
