Shweta Bachchan Nanda in a multi-hyphenate with a best-selling book and a fashion line that she co-designs with couturier Monisha Jaising. However, her laurels don’t end there. In an interview with Vogue India, she credited her decades-long run on the best-dressed charts to acute sartorial self-awareness. “While I do stay updated with trends, I won't wear something I know will not suit me. You become adept at mixing different colours, looks and trends as you grow older. Now, I walk into a store and look for quality and versatility. I've become more cleverly self-styled.” The latter is visible in her jewellery choices that spotlight her love for a statement-making silhouette. Ahead, we take a closer look at the styles that have earned her nod of approval.
Inside Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s jewellery collection
While her off-duty uniform features understated pieces, Bachchan Nanda’s traditional wardrobe clocks in at the opposite end of the spectrum. Bold hues are a canvas for maximalist designs with her discerning eye for statement pieces. And then, there’s the element of the surprise—like the time she punctuated the plunging neckline of her white pantsuit with a diamond necklace for Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s reception. A closer look at her style files and you’ll find that ivory serves as her go-to colour for spotlighting her newest jewellery finds, from beaded emerald necklaces paired with all-white saris to chandelier earrings with a sheer blouse.
With a social calendar packed with the most happening dos in town, Bachchan Nanda has perfected her look, usually punctuated with her signature restraint. On the social circuit, she knows when to pull out the maximalist polki necklaces and when to reach for more subtle pieces. Strapless blouses and sleek necklaces have never fallen out of favour in her traditional wardrobe—the 46-year-old has one for every occasion and yet, no two are alike. On those days when you want your bandhini sari to have its time in the spotlight, follow her lead and drape a golden band around your neck. Further proof of the versatility of this staple silhouette can be found in the use she has gotten out of it—paired with tulle saris and studded golden gowns alike.
