Latest Trendy Accessories from Damselcode and tips on how to style them
Indian Jewelry has been the talk of the year on the fashion front. In-fact Milan and Newyork fashion week showcased lot of Ethnic inspired artificial jewelry and bohemian accessories in their spring summer 2017 collection. This prompted me to fill up my stash with some artificial jewelry, I have been out of touch with information on latest jewelry trends or its shopping since little A’s arrival. So I recently purchased a few jewelry items from an online jewelry store Damselcode! They stock up on really cool Fashion accessories in all styles. So as promised on my insta stories, here is a peek into my haul, my shopping experience, latest jewelry trends of 2017 and some tips to style them. Since I wanted this to be an interesting post, I tried picking one piece each from the recent trends like tribal, elegant, summery and minimalist.
Crystal Floret Earrings – Classic Jewelry
Crystals spell Elegance! I have always been in awe of these radiant stones that scatter light so beautifully. Moreover, Crystal jewelry has been popular amongst celebrities and is almost always in vogue. Also, I am always on look-out for sparkly stud earrings that I can wear in day-to-day as well as in functions. So its no surprise that these crystal earrings were my first pick.
These are beautiful flower shaped earrings with a loop latch behind which keeps the earrings totally in place unlike other loop earrings. Thus despite these being a loop earrings they give a studs like feel.
You can style these crystal studs with both Indian, Western and Ind0-western outfits. I have paired them with an Ethnic Summer Kurta here!
Tassel Earrings – Bohemian Jewelry
If there is one trend that is going to see the light of Summer 2018, Its Bohemian look! From fringes to fishnets and pompoms to tassels, Bohemian is In Vogue! Tassel earrings is the latest fashion fad which is not going to fade anytime soon! (pun intended) These bright colour thread danglers come in various sizes and forms but one thing is common about them is they look pretty vibrant. Pair them with your shorts, Palazzo’s, Maxi’s and even ethnics to channelize the Boho vibe.
So I got these bright pink Tassel earrings from damselcode with a copper colour hoop. These look really pretty when worn and can be paired up with almost any of your outfits. They not only give a pop of colour to the dress but also look edgy.
I have styled the Tassel earring with a fringe cape, a quirky top and ripped shorts in a Bohemain look.
Coin Necklace – Temple/ Antique Jewerly
Temple jewelry is one of the oldest yet most popular jewelry trends. It has taken vogue in recent years after a lot of international fashion designers have incorporated them into their collection. Especially the coin jewellery has got a lot of adulation and very rightly so. These pretty ancient trinklets are here to stay!
Style this coin jewelry with your ethnic top or a crop top & palazzo pants for the Indo-western look.
Chandelier Earrings – Precious Gemstone Accessory
If you want a Celebrity look, You gotta own one pair elegant Chandelier earrings. Nothing spells glam like a pair of Gemstone Chandelier Danglers. I picked a pair of beautiful chandelier earring in sapphire, turquoise and blue-stone embedded with crystals. The only downer was the stones keep falling off, more on that later in my experience section.
Style Tip: Make a statement with this pretty Chandelier earrings pairing them with a formal look or a Saree. Here I have donned it on my favourite Navy Blue Skirt and fringe bag! Apply some dark lippe or do smokey eye to complete your glam look!
Gemstone Arm-cuff – Gemstone ArmCandy
Bracelets are the most important yet most ignored part of your jewelry stash. I bought this pretty Gemstone Cuff Bracelet from Damselcode which can be styled with both Ethnic and Western outfits equally well.
Go minimalist with this bracelet. Pair it with your favorite pair of jeans or your linen kurta and let it be the only Bling!
Multilayered Chains – Charm Necklace Trend
One of the most coveted trend among young fashionistas has to be the Charm jewelry. Everything right from Charm necklaces, multi-layered chains, charm bracelets to bag charms speaks Stylish. Even Multilayered charm necklace is one of the latest jewelry trend these days. Be it different chains or a gradient necklace, anything that’s layering is totally in Vogue. So I got these multi-layered chain as an exchange for one of the broken pieces (a tribal neck-piece which was my first choice) that came in shipment but I totally fell in love with them as soon as I saw them and thought to keep them!
The best part about this Multi-layered charm necklace is that they come in three separate chains and thus can worn separately as well. Look at the beautiful ruby here!
Wear these multi-layered charm necklace with a plunge neck dress or a button up shirt. Make sure you let the charms do all the talking and use solid colours for your outfit. I have paired them with a white button up shirt. Remember, Layering is the Key!
Minimalist Geometric Chain
This was a complimentary gift in my shopping haul and I am really glad I got it! This sleek circle and bar chain never impressed me much until I actually wore it! Its a super sleek chain that’s perfect for a minimalist look. Now that I have it, I am gonna totally flaunt it!
This sleek bar-chain is perfect for your summer crop-tops or bra-lets. You can even style them with your swim-wear or casual tops. Just make sure when it has to be the only piece of jewelry on you, if you want to make a starry statement!
DamselCode Shopping Experience:
The website is pretty user friendly, they have different categories for different styles of jewellery so you can directly head on to the category you are looking for like layering chains or ear-cuffs. They deliver within a week approximately. The quality of the products how ever is not always upto the mark. Amongst my shopping haul, few products were really great quality wise and few of them were totally fragile. The gemstone chandelier earrings for example, the stones keep falling off the earrings and despite having glued at one place, I found that the stones fall from other places which is really sad.
Also as I told you earlier, the tribal spiked neck-lace that I had ordered came broken from one side.
Having said that, the people behind the Brand value customer service and that’s the bright side of this incident. I not only got another neck-piece in exchange of this one (of higher value since this one was out of stock by then) but also was not asked to return this piece. I am thinking I could utilize the earrings atleast 😀 All in all it was a good experience!
