Fashion isn’t just about picking the trendiest outfits and slaying them each time you get dressed. As important it is to pick an outfit that suits you, it’s equally important to pick the right accessories that elevate your look and bring your entire outfit together. Wrong jewelry can ruin your beautiful look and make your outfit look clumsy.

We know what you’re thinking, that choosing the perfect outfit for an occasion is already a tedious job but now you need to make your brain cells stress over picking the right jewelry too. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 

Just how you enjoy buying your desirable outfits at Inddus – your one-stop shop for purchasing ethnic wear, the same way you can skim through the wide range of accessories and choose pieces that suit your outfit and can accentuate your features.

Here’s how you can pick jewelry for any outfit.

  • Jewelry for Saree

Believe it or not, as soon as you adorn a saree and step out of your house, you’re making a statement. Even though it’s one of the most repetitive statements, it’s a fact that saree is one of the most versatile pieces that can be worn on various occasions. It suits every body type and its grace can’t be compared to any other outfit.

But what’s equally important is how you style your saree, because jewelry can make or break your entire look. So, here are a few tips on how to match jewelry with your saree. 

  1. The most basic way to choose the perfect jewelry is by looking at your saree’s color. Bright or heavy embroidered sarees go best with simple gold jewelry or matching gemstone jewelry, whereas, sober/monotone sarees would look best with pearl jewelry. Gold jewelry will also look marvellous with warm tones like reds, yellows and maroons. Silver or platinum jewelry works well with black sarees or sarees that flaunt a black blouse. 
  2. We all know that sarees come in numerous materials such as Bandhani, Banarasi Silk, Kanjeevaram, etc. So, the material of your saree also helps in deciding the perfect piece of jewelry to go with it. 

  • Jewelry for Lehenga

Lehenga is one of the most popular choices for weddings among teenage girls and young women. A lot of fashionistas across the nation are giving attention to this delightful ethnic outfit. Generally, lehenga already has a lot going on on its own – a blouse/crop top, a dupatta and a flared skirt. So, it’s only fair for you to not overdo your jewelry.

Again, the color of your lehenga will definitely play a huge role in deciding the jewelry. For bright colors such as red or maroon, you can pick Kundan or temple gold jewelry to make the best out of your look. You can also mismatch and choose green emeralds to achieve a bold look with your maroon lehenga. 

The way you style your dupatta also affects the kind of jewelry you pick. If you’re wearing it open on your neck or even if you’re wearing it sleekly on your neck, the option of wearing a necklace is already gone. Wearing long dangler earrings with a sleek bracelet or a set of bangles would just do fine.

  • Jewelry with Western

Looking at the variety of western wear for women, there’s a lot of scope for experimenting with your accessories. Almost all kinds of jewelry work well with western wear, only if you know which one to pair with what kind of outfit. 

The first thing to keep in mind is the neckline of your outfit. If you pair your jewelry with a clashing neckline, your whole look can be thrown off. 

  1. Turtle neck: Long chain
  2. Strapless: Choker
  3. V neck: V-shaped pendant
  4. Boat neck: Long bead
  5. Collar: Short pendant or choker
  • Keeping your skin tone in mind

Even though your skin tone isn’t a part of your outfit but it plays a huge role in determining what suits you or not. You probably already know that some colors don’t suit you or compliment you, maybe orange looks gaudy on you or pink makes you look pale. 

Similarly, the jewelry that’s right for your skin tone will compliment you as well. White gold and silver look good on people with cool skin tones. Copper, yellow and rose gold would look good on people with warmer skin tones. And those with neutral skin tones pair well with both silver and gold and most gemstone colors.

  • Choose a focal piece

You definitely don’t want to look like a walking jewelry shop, right? So, it’s advisable to never pair all your heavy, large and bold jewelry together. If you’re wearing a chunky neckpiece, don’t wear big hoops with it or if you’re wearing long danglers, don’t pair it with a bold tribal necklace. 

You definitely can’t wear all types of jewelry i.e., necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings, at once. So, what you can do is, can choose one/two categories out of these four, which you think are statement pieces. But while choosing them, you need to keep in mind that your jewelry is spread out rather than overwhelming one portion of your body. 

So, while wearing a bold pair of earrings, you can choose to wear bracelets or rings, instead of wearing a heavy necklace. That’s how you can balance your look and have a piece that stands out (earrings in this case) and wear other jewelry (bracelets or rings) that complements your focal piece. 


Mastering jewelry is something everyone can do; You just need to have a good eye. With these tips, you can ace any look and make heads turn with your choices.

Happy Styling!
