For years now, a put together ensemble always meant complimenting your clothing with accessories, shoes and bags that imitate the colour pantones of the clothing. It’s quite recently that women felt rebellious or desired to experiment with the concept of contrasts or what fashion likes to call ‘Colour Blocking’.
Colours activate hormones causing chemical reactions influencing emotion and enabling the body to heal. Colours play an eminent role in our life by depicting our inner emotion.
“Colours are the smiles of nature."

In India’s traditional helm of style, women are seen pairing jewellery that match the hues of their outfits for the conventional style lessons that has prevailed for centuries. Breaking the rules ever-so-often, StyleAura challenges women to go bold. Find that we are absolutely delighted with monochrome styling, nonetheless, experimenting with contrasts and colour blocking (when 2 colours from contradicting sides of the wheel are merged or overlapped to create interesting combinations) depicts our vision of interesting, unpredictable and fresh styles, checking off the style bar.
We’re aware it might sound intimidating and unassertive; but witness for yourself how these women fabricate truly divine looks by colour blocking their ensembles with StyleAura’s stunning neckpieces. Flaunting these sensational styles that is an extension of their vibrant personality, Geetha, Shilpa and Mousumi have carved an emotional and colourful path to how their wardrobes will look like this season.
The most opted colour blocking theme is hues of blue and yellow. It can get tricky if done wrong, but let Shilpa’s beautiful style inspire yours. An eclectic Ombre Blue saree rightfully paired with a layered Mustard Yellow onyx beaded chain complimented by meenakari and gold beads at the side, for a unique yet fabulous look.
The ever-so-resplendent blue with strikingly bright green seems scary, doesn’t it? But the key into the fashion world is to be able to pull off a look that’s not in the books. Geetha’s Lime-Green saree teamed with a 3 layered Navy Blue onyx beaded neck piece strung with gold polkis is a total stunner, ain’t it?
Mousumi has a rather traditional style when it comes to sarees. She paired her Maroon-White puja-saree with a dazzling Basil Green layered onyx chain with Green agate and polkis at the side. It screams élan and elegance, so perfect for those who don’t want to break the rules too much, yet want one foot crossing the line.
Let’s give you a recipe of a printed halter dress with a beaded choker for a fool proof, risk-free outfit that will make heads turn. Or let Shilpa do so, seeing how beautifully well she has adorned her printed Blue dress along with our Purple-Pink choker with a drop down pendant.
Gladly picking up the western trend, Geetha sports a Fuchsia Pink dress paired with a gorgeous medley of Mint Green and Zaffre Blue beaded long chain, ensuing a splendid take on brunch or Sunday outfit styles.
