If you’ve grown up in India, just like me, you can vouch for the fact that there is no style like true desi style. We’ve seen our mothers, grandmothers, and sisters adorn themselves in the simplest of Indian accessories and been witness to how they can spice up any outfit.

India is home to many accessories like Jhumkas, juttis, beautifully weaved silks and more. These accessories have created an identity of their own, so much so that the moment you wear them, you can’t help but feel proud of being an Indian.

On the occasion of our Independence Day, I’ve picked out five of my favorite accessories that make me proud to be a desi girl.

Although Chandballi’s are a wedding season staple, you can trust these stunning bold earrings to glam up any casual outfit too!

Banarsi Weaves

A beautifully weaved silk saree is a wardrobe essential for every Indian woman – Don’t you agree? But if Sarees aren’t your most comfortable option, silk scarves and dupattas prove to be the perfect companions in desi-ing up your day, too!

Oxidized Anklets
