Not only tribal print dresses, even tribal print accessories made a mark at WIFW. Woven fabrics like jute were combined with bright tribal print lace to create an outstanding piece. Matching hand cuff also added to the creativity. This is a brilliant concept and can be easily adapted into everyday wear.

I know a few would feel that such looks will only look good in mythological melodramas, but if worn aesthetically it will add the glam quotient to any evening wear. Especially, during summers, when tank tops and sleeveless becomes the ritual; this accessory will make a statement and will add the drama required to your simple cotton dress or ensemble.

Chunky metallic neck collar

Neck collars have been much in fashion last year. But an ethnic chunky twist to the somber peter-pan collars or stone cut-outs is definitely eye-catching. This will add the edginess to a plain spaghetti strap top or ganjee when worn with a floor length skirt.

Chunky jeweled head wear

Add florals and some pearls and some sequins and some….and the list is never ending. The underline is –chunkier the headwear, the better it is. It should be next to a princess’s tiara. The best way to carry off this look is to keep rest of the accessories understated.

Chunky chaand balis
