Chikankari embroidered salwars and sarees are beautiful and delicate and perfect to wear in any weather. They are exceptionally suited for festive occasions – be it the elegant classic white kurta or the kota sarees in a variety of colours. But the perfect Chikankari outfit is incomplete without the right accessories and style to match. Pairing your garment with the right kind of bags, shoes, jewellery and hairstyle can add flair to your charming personality.
Hair: The allure of your ethnic Chikankari ensemble is in how you wear it. Uncoiffed hair will simply put the beholder off, and your look will seem drab and lacklustre. Try a simple sidebraid that looks traditional and festive. If you have long flowing locks, don’t hesitate to let your hair down in a beautiful side-swept style. If you want the classic ethnic look, go for a simple bun that highlights your jewellery and your clothes.
Jewellery: Match your jewellery to your outfit if you are wearing a white Chikankari embroidery kurta – go for large pearl studs or hanging silver jhumkas. Jhumkas are also a great option if you want to tie your hair up; they enhance the silhouette of your saree from your neck to the beautiful flare at your toes. If you’re choosing to go with coloured Chikankari garments, let your jewellery create a contrast – go for dark coloured stonework jewellery in contrast to pastel shade Chikankari.
Bags and shoes: You don’t want attention to be pulled away from the intricate patterns on your ethnic Chikankari outfit, so avoid brightly coloured bags and shoes. Go for beige or flesh-coloured pumps or Kolhapuris that complement your outfit. Choose shades of grey and beige if you have to carry a tote, else choose a tiny clutch in sequins that gives a pop of shimmer to your elegant ensemble.
