Accessories are a secret weapon for a woman's self-expression. You might be professionally obliged to wear a saree or a suit, but a slightly off-professional funky bag can do the trick. So indulge yourself with accessories to break that monotonous look. However, a thoughtful choice of accessories can give you a fresh look every day. So let’s see what’s in trend.
In addition to the wedding accessories, we'll also take a look at everyday accessories for corporate and casual use.
Wear your Attitude
In India there has been an emergence of a new concept in fashion, which is popularly known as the Indo-Western fusion concept. It can be achieved superbly through mix-and-match accessories with playful patterns, embellishments and trimmings like flowers, sequin, dori, zardozi, gota, mirrors and cut crystals.
Size does matter
For formal evenings like wedding receptions, small potli bags either of brocade or sequins are very much in fashion. You can get those designed to match your wedding attire or check out the range of branded ethnic clutche. On the non-wedding front, simple jeans can make you look dressed up for semi-formal occasion without much effort. Big bags embellished with sequin, flowers, ribbons or mirrors are not only functional for accommodating the essentials but are also very stylish and bold.
Colours for the season
For evening wears, go for complete contrasts like orange and purple, black and olive, turquoise, fuchsia or ethnic gold. Days are equally colouful with more fresh colours like turquoise, olive and fuchsia.These colors rule the trend not only in clothes but also in accessories.
Additional Tips for Accessorizing

Do not wear a belt with a large belly. It will make you look curvier.
Stick to your briefcase for files and documents. Don’t treat your purse a suitcase.
