How are you? 😊
I uploaded a sneak peak of this blog post yesterday on Instagram, and I’m so excited to share this breakdown with you today on how I styled my evening outfit for my friends wedding reception.
Look: Party/Wedding reception guest look
Location: Shendish Mandor Hotel (stunning grounds and venue!)
Over the past couple of years I’ve started to experiment putting together my own fusion outfits for occasions just out of my own interest, so as soon as I got the invite to my friends reception I had an idea in my mind of my outfit….well I had a idea for one part of the outfit 😬. I had been gifted a gorgeous blue scarf from Morocco by my partner over a year ago and I’ve wanted to create a look with it for a while. As it’s a statement scarf I thought I would make the counterparts of the outfit minimal in design and looking at the work on the scarf, black would work well as the contrasting colour. I went searching on ASOS as my first point and found this longline cami with a lace slit which added just the right amount of work (it’s on sale now too! 👀). I then paired this with black leggings (you know the trusty type that let you enjoy all the food 😉💃🏽). Below I have also shown the shoes I wore, I chose these patent gold sandals as they would match with the jewellery and bring in that extra glam; this style is from Aldo.
Now on to the fun part, how I styled the jewellery 😍! From previous posts, you know that styling jewellery for me is more than just picking something gold or silver; I look at the details, the shapes, the occasion and so much more. I also make sure that the jewellery chosen complements all the elements considered instead of overpowering. As it was a friends party I wanted some glam, and with the outfit being simple in terms of no jewel work I wanted the jewellery to make a statement and to give it a bit of that bold Indian feel. Keeping these things in mind I put together a few choices on what would match with the outfit and rounded it down to the top 3 choices from my collections.
Here’s the breakdown:
Gold & Blue tassel earrings – I loved that the blue of the tassel matched perfectly with the scarf and that the intricate gold design on the attachment gave it at Indian feel. These are part of a new collection coming soon by us, we have personally sourced and handmade this pair and a range of other colours, they will also come in choices of gold and silver.
Blue stone Tikka & Earring set – I custom finished this set with the frosted druzy agate beads in blue and loved the Indian style of this set. This is part of a full set (coming soon) but the necklace would have overpowered this outfit so I only kept out the tikka and earrings as part of the options. The detail of the design on these earrings match with the shapes of the embroidery of the scarf which ties it together quite well. This style is part of our new collection releasing tomorrow where we can customise bead colours for you to match your outfits, we have a sneak preview of the possible bead colours at the end of this post 😁.
T a n i s i : clear stone – These earrings are the ultimate statement earrings, their sparkle is unbelievable! I loved that they popped out even more against the blue scarf and the flower style matched with parts of the design on the scarf too.
The final choice
In the end I picked the blue stone Tikka & Earring set simply because I just love the uniqueness of the blue stone 🤩.
On the night I felt amazing – exactly what I want AccentsUK jewellery to do for you too…feel like the goddess you are inside 👸🏽🙋🏽♀️.
