While it's common to wear bangles, kadas, neckpieces and earrings, you can stand out beautifully with a bejewelled hairband.

Round it off with fancy earrings and you're sure to be the star of the party.

Instead of opting for one-string pearl or diamond accessory, embrace the 'more is more' approach.

It's easy to style and lets the focus stay on your face.
Just remember to skip the chunky necklace and keep the rest of your accessories low-key.
