What's the best way to tone down jazzy Indian outfits?
Here are the following tips:
1. Tone down with a plain coloured scarf. This block of colour will downplay the entire *bling* aspect of your #ootd, as well as tying the whole look together. I would recommend using a matte scarf, with absolutely no gold/silver edging or glittery bits as I think this looks smarter.
2. Use your accessories to create blocks of colour as this will 'ground' your #ootd and reduce the sparkly element.
3.Use statement jewellery. Traditional Indian #ootd's are already heavily embroidered, with all the bells and whistles. I find that if your jewellery is really dangly and spangly, this can look rather over the top. Stick to one bracelet, or a classy pair of studs.
4. Apply non-glittery makeup. Just because your dress has silver glitter in it, doesn't mean you need matching silver glittery eyeshadow. A pearlescent eyeshadow can look very beautiful :)
5. Feel free to use bright pops of colour! And that is the key. A *pop* of colour. Not an entire smearing of it. When used sparingly, red lips or sparkly purple eye-pencil can add that edge to your overall look!
