Stack together your style quotient: how to wear the Stacked bracelet look

Layering is not just about clothing in current fashion trends, it extends to accessories and jewelry as well. From this current layering look comes the stacked bracelet trend. Gone are the days that you wore one big or chunky it bracelets or arm cuff as a fashion focal point to accentuate your wrists. The look of the moment consists of literally stacking together various bracelets of different colors, shapes, and forms to create and interesting and vibrant look with movement and finesse.

Celebs these days are the first in flaunting this fabulous trend. From the international celebrity, set you have style divas such as Taylor Swift, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Sofia Vergara all wearing this trend.

Bollywood trendsetters are also embracing this look with stylish and easy flair. Deepika Padukone is a big fan of this trend and has been spotted wearing different bracelets together in a stylish stack at many occasions.

We give you a breakdown of how to wear this trend without resulting in any tricky contracts or clashing looks. Stacking bracelets is popular not just in street style fashion, but also on the runway—proving that when it comes to wearing these accessories, “more is more”. The trend involves wearing different kinds of bracelets at once, including bangles, beads, cuffs, leather and fringed wraps, and vintage charm bracelets. You can even add watches, pearls, and embellished friendship bracelets to the combo. Assembling the perfect bracelet stack is far from easy.  You need to combine different metals, shapes, textures, and colors to come up with a perfect mix. The best way to go about is to follow these rules of thumb.

1.      Choose a centerpiece or focal point.

2.      Mix different metal, colors, and textures that go together by creating one or two contracts only in the look.

3.      Play with textures in the same metal or combine fabric, metal, and leather.

4.      Layer carefully mixing thick and thin.

Choose from our varied range of bracelets from Pookaari’s collection and layer together different styles by designers Desi Panache, Karmic Kabira and Rara Avis amongst others to create your own perfect bracelet stack and rock this popular trend this season.

Princess amongst fashion, the Tiara trend

This summer 2016’s ‘it’ hair accessory is one that makes you feel like fashion royalty as you embellish your favorite outfit. We are talking about none other then the oh! So royal tiara, one of the most controversial and popular trends to emerge for hair accessories this season.

In the past, these decorative diadems were reserved for prom queens, beauty pageants, costume parties and royalty. One could be spotted on the head of a bride to be at a hen party; else this accessory was reserved for princesses and royalty, a beautiful embellishment of an erstwhile era. Not anymore it seems, come 2016 and Yves Saint Laurent designer HediSlimane has put this royal accessory to the forefront, proclaiming the Tiara to be worn with absolutely everything this season. The designer showcased the look with a Rock Chic and grunge vibe, reminiscent of Divas like Courtney Love and paired with all kinds of outfits. Tommy Hilfiger also showcased a more traditional and sedate version of the accessory as a traditional girly chic contrast to any existing outfit.

We give you the right way to wear this trend on a daily basis without looking like you are playing dress up. Think of the tiara as less of a pompous crown and more of an update to the headband. While it’s true that it has its limitations – it’s definitely not for everyone – it does have the potential to look really stylish. You just have to follow some very specific rules. The key is to wear it in a subtle and understated fashion and pair it with a clashing look like grunge clothing, jeans, biker jackets or boyfriend shirts. The look needs to contrast the glamour and glitz of the tiara. Wear it with messy and casual styled hair to further accentuate this effect. Don’t pair it with sleek and polished hair, makeup and clothing unless you want to look like wannabe royalty. Wear it to a dinner party or evening event and not for a casual lunch or grocery shopping (unless you are Lady Gaga)

Also, opt for small sections and delicate pieces or headbands with ornate features rather than tall over the top fixtures, which could end up having a costume effect. Put your hair in a half up-do and clip the accessory in place to emulate.

At Pookaari, we have curated a collection or royal and Tiara inspired hair accessories to help you sport this trend. Shop golden headpieces, diamanté, and bling accessories and bejeweled headbands from our Hair Drama and Co., 

collection to wear this current
must have and edgy trend and keep your style game on point.

The perfect angle of fashion: Geometric jewelry influences

In today’s
trends, it’s considered hip to be square. Geometric jewelry is on
the rise and gaining popularity in the form of dainty triangle rings
and rectangle pendants, bold octagonal cuffs and pentagon shaped
earrings. Geometry, formulation and coordination are words not
commonly associated with jewelry. The moment we utter the term
‘bling’ we gear our subconscious thoughts towards a heavyset chain
and cluster of diamonds. However, modern trends are continuously
moving away from traditional stereotypes of floral and nature
inspired motifs.

Historically,
ancient civilizations have always used geometrical shape and form in
their art, textile and jewelry designs. Taking inspiration from
certain kinds of tribal jewelry and historical cultures such as
Egyptian and Aztec influences, today’s designers are making jewelry
with modern influences and patterns and geometrical shapes. The
shapes of the pyramids of Egypt are in themselves the greatest
inspiration to designers and artists throughout the ages.Nowadays,
modern jewelry designers are taking inspiration from architecture,
molecular structures and geometric shapes and are often asymmetrical
and abstract in their use of shapes and structures.

On the
international fashion scene, designers such as Marni, Proenza
Schouler , Chloe and Prada use bold shapes to create the perfect edge
to their statement pieces . Giving a nod to the elegant lines of Art
Deco, designers are embracing this trend to give their jewelry a
clean, modern and polished look. Precious jewelry designers such as
Mikimoto combine geometric lines with cultured pearls to create one
of a kind works of art that are refreshingly and bold at the same
time. Even high street labels are doing their take on geometrical
jewelry pieces and reasonably priced options can be found in popular
brands to showcase this current trend.

For the Indian
market, geometrically influenced jewelry works brilliantly well with
both western and traditional wears, and can transition seamlessly
from day to evening looks. It can be worn with Indian clothes to
provide a stylish, interesting and modern edge to contrast a
traditional look. Many Indian designers are experimenting with
geometric and asymmetrical jewelry in their current collections.

At Pookaari,
designer Esha Zaveri wows us with her collection of jewelry inspired
by a bold and geometrical aesthetic. From earrings, bracelets to
neckpieces, her collection comprises of perfectly crafted geometric
pieces. Designer Sameer Madan’s collection comprises of bold and
beautiful earrings in triangular shape, which are unique in their
modern and stylish appeal. Pookaari’s in house collection of
jewelry also had many carefully curated pieces of a geometric appeal.

Add these
stunning jewels to your wardrobe and flaunt the Geometrical jewelry
trend in all its linear and angular aesthetic and appeal.

Super small arm candy: The Mini Bag Fashion trend

With less being equal to more in modern times and downsizing being a big and emerging lifestyle trend, we are seeing influences of minimalistic culture trickling into fashion and accessories looks as well. Mini—and even micro—bags are this season’s must-have accessory. Despite the fact that they require redefining what counts as everyday essentials, these bags have become quite popular with the style set. The result is not only a weight off your shoulders (literally) but also a fresh and fun way to make a major statement with just one tiny piece. Another added bonus is that they’re a great way to get your hands on a designer bag at a palatable price point.

This new trend in fashion is oh so cute and definitely adds a fresh take and much-needed relief from the over-sized designer bags that have been weighing down our arms and shoulders over the past couple of years. Flash back to a couple of years ago, and you’ll probably remember that everybody’s designer handbag was bigger than the next. Phillip Lim’s oversized Pashli, YSL’s hefty Cabas, Céline called its infamous style a luggage tote, for crying out loud. Now, it seems the style set has quite literally gone to the other extreme, swapping enormously oversized bags for minuscule styles that’ll barely hold a tampon, a credit card, and your iPhone.

International designers such as Valintino, Fendi, YSl and Stella MCartney have all come out with mini versions of their popular bags to celebrate this fun and flirty trend. High street designers are also churning out various practical and wearable options in handheld, sling and cross body styles to suit your needs. Theses bags can also fit in your larger tote and transitional seamlessly from a day to a flirty and fun evening cocktail look. With minimum fuss and baggage, the leave you free to be light on your feet and have fun without being endlessly worried about your handbag all night long.

We at Pookaari have curated a trendy collection of mini bags by designer Ruhmet, which are available in a lovely array of bright and opulent colors to match and contrast with all your outfits. Their delicate embellishments add a touch of glamor and class to your look while keeping you one trend with their mini size.
