Fashion goals are not just about the right outfits but also include accessories that compliment the look phenomenally. Spelling femininity is adding a pair of eye-popping earrings to your collection.

Fashion accessories are the most underappreciated and underrated add-ons when it comes to fashion.

They can easily make or break your look. Finishing the outfit with the perfect earrings would give you a complete makeover.

A slight change made by an accessory can make a big difference in the look and feel of your outfit.

However, over-accessorising can spoil the outfit just as under accessorising can make you look boring.

Jeweller Sengmitchi C. Marak from Dobasipara in Meghalaya’s West Garo Hills added a new twist to the trend by giving a traditional touch to every earpiece.

Marak, who was awarded the Chief Minister’s E-champion challenge 2019, started designing jewellery when she enrolled in a basic course in Fashion Designing and Technology at the National Skill Training Institute (NSTI) in 2018-2019.

“I have always loved to watch handcrafted things since childhood. The beautiful works of artisans always motivate me, and lately, I was inspired and motivated by a new little thing called Pinterest,” Marak said.

Traditional yet modern, she designs jewellery with a traditional wrap-around fabric called “Dakmanda” which makes her work stand out.

Apart from that, Marak also designs necklaces, hairbands and other accessories made of crystal beads and semi-precious stones.

Turning to Marak for tips, she said matching earrings with the outfit is important as it not only gives a good look but adds a tint of elegance.

“When in college, wear lighter earrings, while going to the office wear earrings which have a formal touch and when in parties wear fancy earrings matching it with what you wear to steal the spotlight,” Marak said.

“Whether it is a red carpet look or just a casual outdoor look, every girl should own three types of earrings which are simple, fancy and traditional that are comfortable to wear and easy to match with,” Marak added.

Earrings enhance and transform your look, so always complete the attire with a pair of earrings to add that perfect bling.

Fashion accessories include belts, bags, shoes, hats, sunglasses, watches, headbands, hair clips and jewellery like earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets and others.

With earnings, there are just too many options to choose from, with a brand name tag “Amis” you will want to add these jaw-dropping earpieces to your collection.
