When you are wearing a white attire, it is but natural for you to accessorize it with white bangles. Especially when you are wearing a white saree, you can complete the look with a dozen of white glass bangles or white fancy thread woven bangles on both the hands. The same holds good with when you are wearing a white salwar suit or kurtis.
2. Matching Fancy Bangles
When you are wearing colorful clothes, you can accentuate the look by teaming up some fancy, matching, colorful bangles. The bangles can be of any color from the outfit you are wearing. Mind you, when you are aiming for a traditional look, the more the number of bangles, the better.

If you want to look elegant and poised in a silk saree, then avoid wearing too many bangles. One large bangle on both the hands are enough to make a powerful statement. And they also have a slight touch of traditional, without going over the top. When the number of bangles is less, you can always use heavy neck pieces and earrings.
