Headpieces are a really diverse accessory, and can accentuate any type of type of Indian outfit when worn the right way. The fact that there are so many different styles and designs means there are endless possibilities to choose from.
I've noticed a lot of young women lately, mixing this accessory with Indian Wear and hats off to you girls for taking a risk, because when it works it looks super sassy and sleek.
There are some basic do's & don'ts in my opinion for wearing Headpieces, especially when pairing it with Indian wear so I thought I share them with you!
Let me know what you think and if there's anything you'd add to my list!!
- Don't choose a style that doesn't suit your face shape or size of your face, if for example you have a a petite face, then steer clear of large bulky headpieces that have a centre piece that is big, choose something that is simple and dainty that adds to your look rather than take away from it, and if your face shape is the opposite than you can be choose a design that is bolder and defined...
- Don't pair the headpiece with the wrong hairstyle, making a headpiece work depends on amalgamation of both a great headpiece and a stunning hair do. The key here is to choose a hair style that is relaxed, effortless and natural, don't scrape those luscious locks back keep is simple and fun, I think messy waves are a great way to work this accessory and they are a great base for any updo hairstyle...
- Don't forgo a hair parting, these accessories often require a parting of sorts, whether it be middle or side choose the right one for the style of head piece...
- Be adventurous with the style of the head piece, there is an exodus of options out there to choose from which means there is pretty much something for everyone...
- Choose a piece that matches the style of your outfit, if your paring it with an anarkali or sari, then make sure the headpiece compliments the embroidery work and design, whether it be Stone, Gota, Aari or Polki work for example, the accessories should always compliment the outfit not distract from it!
- Be Brave!! Wearing a head piece can be a daunting and daring choice of accessory especially if you've never worn one before, so don't be afraid of it, embrace it! It is after all, an accessory that has its origins in the East, so pairing it with Indian wear a natural look that has been around forever!
