Vidya Balan shows you the 5 statement silver jewellery pieces you must own!

We take inspiration from wife and actor Vidya Balan and decode her silver jewellery collection!

The wedding season is finally here and most of you must be scrambling through your wardrobe to find the perfect outfit and matching accessories. And while opting for gold or imitation jewellery is a good bet any day, it's actually silver jewellery that's trending these days.

They go with almost all Indian and western outfits, and are certainly cheaper to buy than gold or even imitation. But if you're wondering what kind of silver jewellery with go with your ensembles, we take some inspiration from wife and actor Vidya Balan, who carries off silver jewellery like a boss!

#1 Bold jhumki

Start with the basics and include a bold and big pair of silver jhumkis in your collection. If you are a fan of jhumkis, you must take inspiration from Vidya's simple look, which has been accessorised by a pair of long yet simple jhumkis.

A pair of jhumkis can also be paired with buttoned tops, which you can pair with lehengas and long skirts. Or you can go with the basic kurta and palazzo and team them with these gorgeous accesories. Our suggest is that whether or not you are a big fan, this is one style that must be in your collection.

#2 Cascading neckpieces

The trend of cascading neckpieces has made a comeback, after making a short appearance in the last 90s. It's being sported by many celebrities including Vidya, who gave us some major jewellery inspiration with her neckpiece that complimented her western outfit.

These neckpieces that have a chunk flowing downwards in a river-like look go perfectly even with sarees and regular Indian outfits. If you like some bling in your neckpieces, then a piece like this is a must have in your collection.

#3 Baju bandh and bangles

No jewellery collection for an Indian woman is complete without a bangle or kangan. And if you happen to own a silver bandh  your collection is sorted. It's no longer just the plain silver bandh that are back in vogue, but also those that have intricate work on them.

Take a cue from the one Vidya is sporting here. She is seen wearing a chunky silver bangle akin a bandh that has some really interesting work on the outside. Certainly a good find for your collection.

#4 Coloured silver neckpieces

The addition of colours in neckpieces is nothing new, but those in chunky and long neckpieces certainly makes it a statement wear. Take a cue from Vidya for this chunky neckpiece that is seen wearing with a rather simple outfit.

A piece such as this can easily be accessorised with wester or Indian wear and cam compliment any coloured-outfit. This piece is from Inayat Jewels and certainly lifts up that plain outfit. If you are up for some jewellery experiment, this is the way to go!

#5 Silver choker

Since Vidya is not very experimental with her clothes, she prefers to amp with her style with some statement jewellery. And off late we have seen her don various interesting pieces, one of which is affordable and goes with almost every outfit.

This choker, which has work loosely can be your best friend if you are too much of a jewellery person. It is bold enough to not need chunky earrings or any other jewellery piece and can clearly lift any outfit out of a slumber!

So what's the wait, get your hands on a statement silver piece right away and brighten up your collection!
