By  | 

The beauty of traditional Indian wear is lifted ten times when it is paired with the right accessories. To add a pinch of glam to your entire desi look, here are six must have accessories that you should have in your collection.


Ever since Deepika Padukone donned it as Piku, this delicate dot—once the exclusive preserve of married women, has become a style rage. It gives your forehead much-needed attention and makes your desi avatar look wow and awesome.

Ethnic Earrings

To make an Indian wear come alive, you need to add a pair of really amazing ethnic earrings. And if you end up picking one in a really bright colour that will stand out with any outfit – it’ll just make for the perfect accessory!  You can choose between jhumkas or chaand baalis to make your look really pop.

Maang Tikka


Once considered an accessory exclusive to brides, the newer and delicate form of this hair accessory can be donned easily with simpler outfits too. It adds such a pretty Indian touch to your look.


Simaaya Fashions

Nothing can be a better accessory than bangles glittering on your hands. Bangles are the very essence of Indian wear and also act as a style accessory.


Anklets are the new thing that go just as well with western attires, as they do with Indian outfits. The new genre is lighter and more delicate than its chunkier, noisier predecessors that were an integral part of the traditional Indian bridal ensemble. Try these trendy tinkling foot wraps to funk up your look.

Nose Rings

Nothing can be quite as desi as a sexy nose ring. For an accessory worn across the length and breadth of the country, it remains a fave in so many avatars; big and blowsy, a simple ring design or just a stud.  The Kapoor girls, Sonam and Kareena are just two of the many celebs who’ve glamorized this tiny but jazzy accessory in its traditional and trendy avatars.

So girls, do stock up on these if you haven’t already!
