Here is the place to be ladies, make life that little bit easier.
One of our favourite trends climbing the accessories barometer, is the Nath (Nose Ring). We're excited to share the fast emerging rage in its most popular styles and how to wear them. The best part, these accessories don’t break the bank!
But first, a little rooted history. Nose rings are very common in India but they actually originated in Africa and the Middle East. Borrowed from the latter, it can be safely assumed that the Mughals brought the Nath to India; where it's been adopted into cultural significance; one of which symbolises a married woman, who needs a ring on the finger when you can be proposed to with a nose ring!
There’s a special vibe enhanced by the nose ring and bound to fascinate anyone. This ornament has such beauty and captured the heart of poets and painters while they depicted Indian women and goddesses; adorned them with nose ornaments and glorified their beauty. So, if your single and ready to mingle, this is a new selfie for the profile pic. Jaldi!
On the release of Devdas, we’ve massively rekindled the love for nose rings. Our bollywood queens; Aishwarya, Madhuri, Sonali and Deepika, have raised the trend on wearing nose rings and nose pins to the next level.
Brides have adopted this trend for a few seasons but the new take on wearing these, is right up our street! Donning nose rings on the daily ya’all, have made them the most happening fashion accessory! Whether your heading out to the bar for a casual catch up or prepping for that all big fat indian wedding; where a potential hubby may also be sniffing out a wifey; leaving the house with a naked nose is a no no! After all you wanna be noticed by him right?
The nation is styling the nose ring with their own quirky take on this. Below are inspiring images to get you started.
Avoid blindly replicating someone else’s style, be yourself and feel comfortable in what you wear; that becomes your style statement!
