An Indian holiday is never too far away. Our rich cosmopolitan culture is full of celebrations of different faiths and communities and there is always an excuse to bring in the joy at a big or small festival be it a a small festival or a gala one.
And what better way to celebrate an Indian festival with a deep jewel toned lush lehenga?
Even Bollywood divas have favored the deep, rich colors of resplendent Indian Ethnic wear like ruby red, royal blue, emerald green, topaz yellow and iridescent pink.
And if you have had enough of being the demure damsel in pastel shades like mint, pearl, sky blue and peach, then it is time to get bold and pick at least one lehenga or saree in jewel tones.
You know why we love this trend even more? The jewel toned outfit is pleasing on all skin tones and it lets you wear bold make up that pops out in your selfies and group pictures whether you get a photo op at night or in the day.
So why should you have to wait to lay your hands on your own crowning jewel colored Indian Ethnic Wear ?
Scroll down and see the vibrant parade of sequined delights that will make you shine like a - jewel, no less!!
Red Siren: Shilpa Shetty looks no less than a siren in this Ruby Red sequined lehenga. The Marsala shade gives her sultry oomph and the modern motif and clean lines make sure the look is dressy but not over the top. Her subtle makeup and elegant ruby necklace don't break the color scheme and compliment the outfit. Although we would have liked to see her pair it with a string of solitaires but this look works well too. We love that she decided to skip the earrings and go with one statement jewelry piece keeping the focus on the gorgeous outfit.
Blue Moon: Well, the sad truth is that despite her powerhouse talent in a film like Citylights, actor Patralekha's has not got her the work and acknolwdgement she deserves - making her something of a once in a blue moon appearance. However her demure outing with this dazzling blue lehenga is reminder enough that she is one to favour quality over quantity. Slick hair and matching stone studded earrings add the finishing flair. Like the look?
Little Green Monster: The little green monsters of envy are sure to visit you if you cannot take your eyes of Kriti Sanon in this gorgeous sequined and embellished green lehenga. However we suggest- turn poison into medicine and instead of turning green with envy - pick this green number and take a turn or two on the red carpet.Keep the hair simple and pick bright eyes over smoky peeps to let the focus stay on your outfit. The contrasting jewelry like Kriti's ruby highlights on the necklace and chunky earrings are great to break the monotony, but we wish she had ditched the necklace and let the resplendent green outfit take center-stage.
Shine bright like a diamond: That seems to be the motto of the KKK - no sweat; we mean - Kareena Kapoor Khan. Although this one is not Indian wear, who said that you cannot take some inspiration from this blinding gown and pick this gorgeous sillvery-gold lehenga to bling you up ? Matching minimal footwear and a minimal earthy toned make-up and no jewelry keep the look sophisticated and classy.
Royalty reincarnate: Pooja Hegde's amethyst zari embellished lehenga reminds us just why Purple is the designated color of royalty the world over. The lovely amethyst shade and silver embellishments are flattering for all skin tones and age groups. This is just the kind of luxurious Indian wear that says everything without a word uttered by the wearer.
Step into an amethyst lehenga and be prepared to receive your subjects.
So, isn't it tempting to see these rich jewel colors and want them all?
We say the best time to do anything is NOW, so why waste time when you know you want this. Pick your jewel toned Ethnic wear today and serve some bubbly gorgeousness - on the rocks !
