Festive Accessory Spotlight: Matha Patti

Matha Patti Trend, My Fashgram

When aiming to add the wow factor on a traditional outfit this Diwali, we always advise trying one of two things; either pair a shiny base like a brocade suit with subtle accessories, or opt for a simpler outfit and liven it up with dramatic jewellery. Earrings are great, maang tikkas are better, but we think stepping up your accessory game to include some ornate matha pattis is absolutely ideal — think of it as the ethnic equivalent to a floral crown!

Game of crowns 

We often find ourselves in a fix when it comes to dressing up for festivities, especially when the outfit in question has been repeated far too many times or is too outdated and plain. In such cases, don’t loose hope just yet. This is where an elaborate matha patti comes to your rescue — we adore the fact that it’s quite literally like an amplified version of the maang tikka, the way it wraps along the sides of the forehead adds to its rich look and almost resembles a crown-like regality. Not to mention, how great an accessory it makes for your hair! We consider it an opulent hair ornament that gives us fashion goose bumps. They can easily become the focal point of your whole attire — so wear it with a lehenga-choli or a high neck bandhgala suit, the resulting look will leave bystanders in complete awe. Just be sure to skip heavy earrings and opt for minimal studs instead to help create a balancing act.

A festive look is never complete without jewellery and choosing the right piece is crucial — not only because they elevate your repertoire, but also because they can make or break your look. Now, we know that matha pattis can give off an extremely over-the-top look, but don’t give up on this accessory just yet, as the newer versions are a lot more minimal and extremely versatile. You won’t have to restrict these pieces to just offset heavier clothes alone, these pieces look exceptionally stylish on all sorts of bardot crop tops and blouse cuts that you’ve incorporated into your ethnic wardrobe as well. Think of it as the ideal standalone accessory — perfect for those occasions where minimal works best.
