From selecting a perfect outfit for her bride-friend to getting a perfect picture, you as a bridesmaid are always on a mission to get things done perfectly. The on-point makeup, the hair done right, footwear arranged sequentially, and the accessories selected just perfectly. Bride is all set! Now it’s time for your perfect look. After all, you’re the bride’s best friend, you have to stand out!

Either you are a woman who chooses her accessories very carefully and precisely, or just someone who likes to go with the trend, there’s no in-between. In any case, looking good is your ultimate goal, and “trends”, “fashionable”, and “in” things are your mantra words. You are very much into recreating a celebrity look, or you try on a trend you saw in a magazine. You’re always on a hunt to find a unique fashion trend to wear and make it a statement. If you said “Omg, that’s me!” to any of the above then this one's for you -- Maang Tikkas are the new trending accessory. After necklace sets and earrings, maang tikkas are something every millennial woman is choosing to slay in with her ethnic outfits. They’re shining the spotlight with elegant combinations and mix-matchings that are truly appealing and pleasingly convincing. That said, Maang Tikkas are becoming a trending bridesmaid accessory, and something for you to be included in as a must-have for your best-friend’s wedding. Now, for that “Let's do a Maang Tikka look!” excitement jumping in you, here are some styling tips for you to get started.

For the Necklace and Maang Tikka combination

Instead of a regular necklace and earrings combination, go for a slight twist of Maang Tikka with Necklace. It’s unique, trendy, and sophisticated. You can pair this combination with a closed, open, and deep neckline. Wear a heavy intricate Persian Choker or Gulbandh necklace on a Boat, Funnel, or Crew neckline and pair it up with a matching Maang Tikka for a truly divine and royal look. For this look, you can go for Kundan or Temple Maang Tikka with Gold polishing or Zircon Maang Tikka with Rose Gold polishing. Keep the blouse simple and non-intricate as your jewellery is already fulfilling that. A dense blouse with dense jewellery will result in an extra-busy and not-so-pleasant look.

For the Earrings and Maang Tikka combination

Resist that urge to put on a necklace with those beautiful sets of earrings, because there is a new and much better trendy option in -- Maang Tikka. Maang tikka with earrings is the most elegant, minimal, and attractive combination of occasion wear jewellery. Match a beautiful Rhodium plated Zircon Maang Tikka with Rhodium plated Zircon Chandbalis. Wear them on a Scoop, Cowl, or Halter neckline for a contemporarily classy bridesmaid look. The whole look will shine better if you choose to wear them with an outfit made of sheen fabric.

For Just the Maang Tikka

This is for the minimal you who likes to keep it simple yet intends to be the talk of the event. Beyond the necklaces and earrings, wearing just Maang Tikkas gives out an effortlessly magical look. Wear an oversized Champagne or Rose Gold plated Maang Tikka with Zircon stone studdings on it or colourful stone setting embellishments. You can also go for One-Layer Matha Patti with a sleek hairstyle. Wear them with sharp necklines such as Deep-V, Scoop, Sweetheart, and Funnel. You can enhance your look by accessorising with a matching or complementing set of bangles and/or rings.

For the Necklace, Earrings, and Maang Tikka Combination

For the “all in” attitude in you, and the woman who likes to have it all, this is for you. Go all the way in and fully embrace the charm of jewellery blings. But to make this combination work beautifully and not end up being “too much”, make sure to know how to balance. Maintain a right balance between the three -- If your necklace is dense and intricate, go for light and minimal earrings and heavy Maang Tikka; if your earrings are big and heavy, go for simpler necklaces and medium sized Maang Tikka; and so on. Try such mix-match balances with suitable necklines of your outfit, and that’s it! There’s your perfect look!

So what are you waiting for? These tips surely must’ve popped a few more amazing ideas in your mind. Maybe something to do with that newly bought dress in your closet that you feel is perfect for your bridesmaid look? Well, it probably will work with the Maang Tikka look very well, because Maang Tikkas is a perfect accessory that will go with almost every and any outfit you chose to wear. Just a few hitches here and there and you’re good to go and slay your bridesmaid look!
