Oriya Jewelry: Tarakasi
If there is a place on earth which has untapped inspiration for fashion and style its Orissa, located on the eastern part of India. The silver jewelry else known as Tarakasi is an accessory style to explore with a wide range of outfits.
The motifs used in this style are inspired by the surrounding flora and fauna and from the carvings of the Sun Temple at Konark (A famous heritage spot). The accessories vary from earnings and long chains to pendant sets and waists bests.
Brooches, hairpins and anklets with semiprecious stones are also quite popular choices to go for.
Below are some suggested looks for incorporating these exquisite pieces into your wardrobe:
The corporate look:
A lot of women are incorporating minimal bold jewelry or accessory look for the office. You can go for the stud flower style silver earrings and pendant set , with your classic white shirt or blouse paired with a jacket and solid colored trousers. If you are not an eating fan and love to wear printed blouses or shirts try the silver bracelet.
If you have a casual Friday look , circular danglers are a good option. Danglers can give a character to your face, especially when you do not have the perfect makeup.
The classic LBD look:
The LBD is meant for accessories particularly the delicate silver Tarakasi earrings. The type of hearing style chosen does also depend upon the cut and style of the dress. For a low V neck belted black dress, long danglers go best. If you are wearing an off shoulder dress, a bold neck e piece might do the trick. Even better if you have good collarbones and are have hassles with ear pieces, go for the Tarakasi clutch bag.
The lunch with friends look:
The lunch with friends look, means an avenue for self style innovation. If you have a garment which comprises a blocking of solids and prints try a delicate floral motif necklace set.
If your garment has heavy prints go for earpieces, rings, a bold pendant or a combination of the above. You can mix and match, to get the right look complementing your garment.
