Tip for wear math pattis into your daily outfits
Matha Pattis are usually worn by brides in asian country like India and Pakistan or by those attending weddings but you can actually incorporate this chic trend into your daily outfits as well. Of course you won’t be rocking the same heavily adorned gold and silver matha pattis when heading out for coffee with friends. But to rock head pieces on an everyday basis, start looking at your jewelry collection instead of going directly to the market to buy new ones.
Every girl has a few charm necklaces or some real sparkly diamanté — encrusted ones. These are perfect for wearing as head pieces. Simply place the necklace on your forehead, secure with bobby pins on both sides, poof up your hair and voila, instant glam! If you’re a bit more daring then you could even use stretchable bow head bands that are all the rage due to Gossip Girl a few years ago, as head pieces. Adjust the bow towards the side instead of the middle and you’ll be good to go. Just make sure your head band is stretchable enough that it doesn’t pinch your forehead unnecessarily.
