While trends change with time, there are certain things that just continue to be a part of your life. One among them are the desi apparel and accessories that add elegance to your traditional avatar. These may not be the next-big-thing, but make them a part of your life so you don’t miss out on something really beautiful. Here’s a list of things that would add charm to your closet.
Desi jhumkas

Jhumkas are a must-have part of every girl’s accessory box. These are embellishments that bring out the best in you. Pair them with the right outfit and you won’t need anything else to complete the look. Saritha Reddy, jewellery designer and owner of Trends Jewellery at Secunderabad, says that jhumkas are perfect accessories for both ethnic and western wears.

“They are worth spending on and they will never disappoint you as they look the best with anything you wear,” she adds.

Jutti fun
Like the jhumkas, these can also go with any kind of outfit. They are the best examples of fusion style. Banjara Hills-based designer Rama says that people have a wrong notion that juttis go best with traditional wear, but that’s not true. She mentions that they can be paired with a traditional salwar as well as with a pair of jeans and t-shirt. “In fact, they are the best options to go for when you are flaunting jeans,” she adds.

That one dupatta
Dupatta is one apparel that brightens up your entire outfit. The present trend is all about bright shades. Rama advises people to go for dupattas with more colours as they can be paired with anything. “More the merrier,” she says, adding “More colours make a dupatta look elegant and beautiful,” she adds. The designer mentions that one can also opt for embroidered dupattas and add a splash of colours to your outfit.

A traditional saree
Your wardrobe may be filled with packs of fancy saris, but if it does not have a single traditional sari then you are missing out on something. They look the prettiest when draped properly. Rama says that it is compulsory to have a traditional sari as a part of every girl’s wardrobe. “The old patterns and designs only add more elegance to your look,” she adds.
