On the occasion of Pahela Baishakh, every woman wants to look gorgeous in a unique way. Ethnic splendor is given more importance on this day than regular party looks.
There is something so cultural about clay, wooden and metal ornaments which gold or even diamond cannot replace. Get a touch of these earthen embellishments in your look.
Colorful Beaded Jewelry
The main colour worn on Pahela Baishakh is white. A white sari with red blouse and colourful beaded necklace would look exotic. It has a tribal appeal with an artistic sophistication. Opt for all sorts of colours- yellow blue, red, green, purple, etc. If you are wearing skirt and tops, opt for one with local motifs. Colourful beaded necklace with white or red skirt and tops would have a tribal and bohemian look.
Wooden ornaments are rare, expressive and creative. Wearing minimal jewelry looks chic and emphasizes your overall Baishakhi style. Wooden ornaments would look stunning with a red cotton kameez. Try to keep it simple and avoid wearing too many ornaments, even if it is wooden. Overdoing it can ruin the elegant effect.
Touch Of Clay
Clay ornaments remain popular throughout the year but on Pahela Baishakh their demand increases in many folds. Their versatility makes them wearable in any occasion. Clay ornaments look chic with both traditional outfit and Western wear. A jamdani sari with a polymer clay pendant and matching earrings would bring out the artist in you.
Who said metal jewelry is only for the metal musicians? Metal jewelry is rich in ethnicity and art which makes it appropriate in various Bengali occasions. A long white kameez with red churider and dupatta (orna) along with a metal necklace would look gorgeous. Instead of wearing a whole chunk of metal, wear small geometrical shapes such as circles, squares or triangles attached to a black string. If you want a more rocking Baishakhi look, put more elements of metal in your embellishment. Opt for a red attire in that case.
