Indian jewellery and accessories have always held immense fascination for me. As a child, I remember gawking at the colorfully decked Rajasthani women with their big, solid, sliver anklets or admiring South-Indian women with their toe rings and lovely diamond studded nose pins. The accents always created a picture of elegance and class effortlessly.
Growing up, I began to love the idea of mixing and matching traditional Indian accessories with our daily dressing.
A toe ring fits in perfectly if you are wearing Kolhapuri chappals or open sandals with a pair of jeans and a kurta. Pick one that has a little elaborate design to draw the eye to the toes.
Anklets are my favorites as they are extremely versatile depending on the designs you pick and there are so many out there.
You could wear them casually every day but once in a while, I love to wear anklets with my LBD and high heels just for that little twist in the tale.
So go ahead, experiment and play around and make those feet and toes look beautiful!
