The convergence of the classic and the current best describes Kiara Advani’s sartorial disposition. The actor’s go-tos are high-impact, low-fuss and always on-trend. She’s not one for a wardrobe that desperately shouts for attention. And the same goes for her jewellery choices.
Advani uses accessories to add flourish to her looks when required, and isn’t afraid to give them a miss altogether when she feels her chosen outfit is strong enough. This is true of her Indian and western ensembles alike. We decode her penchant for ‘less is more’ jewellery ahead.
Kiara Advani’s traditional jewellery picks
While most tend to OD on jewels when styling their traditional looks, Advani would rather do the opposite. Always about balance, she’ll never do an extra outfit with extra jewellery. So, for instance, with her Faraz Manan grey lehenga and waistcoat set, she wore a polki and emerald choker and cocktail ring, skipping the earrings altogether. Ditto with her Manish Malhotra lehengas where she ditched the earrings for multi-strand polki necklaces, stacked bracelets and cocktail rings. So there you have it: less can be enough.
There are also times when Advani chooses just chandelier earrings instead of full sets. Statement chaandbalis, in particular, are her favourite. As is playing with colours. Case in point: a pastel pink lehenga worn with an art deco emerald and diamond choker and drop earrings. Chokers, she further illustrates, needn’t always be traditional. She picked a thoroughly modern design to top off her sparkly tie-dye sari.
Kiara Advani’s everyday jewellery
You’ll rarely see Adavni piling on the bling. In fact, she almost always skips the jewels on a daily basis. When she does add them, they are unassuming and unpretentious. Think simple, delicate and minimal. For her birthday celebrations, the actor accessorised her silky white co-ord set with a thin gold choker and multiple gold rings. Another time, she wore an all-white Essé by Sahib & Sunayana ensemble with a silver and tassel long necklace by Ritika Sachdeva. The same is applicable on the red carpet as well. Such as the time she wore a voluminous Shantanu & Nikhil gown with nothing but a three-finger ring by Kaj Fine Jewellery and solitaires.
Gold hoops, though, always seem to make the cut. Especially when Advani is travelling. From nondescript basics to bonafide showstoppers, she has been spotted in a range of variations from labels like Lune, Flower Child by Shaheen Abbas and Misho.
