Ottoman Hands Festival Jewellery

Spring has officially arrived in London and its time to enjoy longer and warmer days, bare legs, picnics and plan all the upcoming festival season action including our oh-so-chic bohemian wardrobe. When it comes to our festival fashion, we find it to be both super exciting and tricky to plan!  Are we ready to sacrifice comfort to the unforgiving gods of style? Should we choose bohemian glamour or cool rock n roll? There are so many festival looks to embrace, we decided to put together a short questionnaire to help you find out what festival style tribe you belong to. So sit back, relax and get inspired to kickstart the party season with that perfect festival outfit (and get a pen and paper to doodle on)!

          B) Dry shampoo

          C) Biker boots

          D) Flower Headband

     2.  Do you wear any make-up to the festival?

         A) Lots of make-up! A colourful mascara, a cool lipstick, face-glitter, the more the better…

         B) I like to keep it minimal and fresh: mascara and lip-balm, sunshine will take care of the rest

         C) I swear by smokey eyes 

         D) Bejewelled body stickers and bright eye-shadows

     3.  Your festival garment choice…

          B) My favourite denim shorts

          C) A leather-look mini skirt 

          D) A crochet crop top

     4.  What shoes do you wear?

          A) Mules, they’re the shoe of the season and just what I need to pull the look together

          B) Can’t go wrong with wellies, whether it rains or shines, it will be a muddy experience

          C) Doc Martens or those cool biker boots I got in the sales

          D) Lace up sandals with those cute bright tassels 

     5.  The most essential accessory…

          A) Statement jewels

          B) Power bank to charge my phone, it’s not really an accessory, but a must-must-have

          C) Ray Bans

          D) A bucket bag         

      6.  How do you wear your hair?

           A) Wavy locks

           B) A top knot or a pony tail, so it doesn’t get in the way when I’m dancing

           C) A messy up do

           D) I love jewellery with semi-precious stones to add colour and meaning to my look 

 

Mostly As. Glamour Disco Queen

Ottoman Hands Festival Style Tribes. Disco Queen

The bigger, the better is the fashion motto for these style mavens! From make-up to accessories you know that chic glamour requires meticulous attention to detail. As we are embracing a disco revival this summer, there are many style inspirations to explore. From luxurious turbans to metallic tube tops, nothing is truly off limits and festivals are just the place to express you creative personality.

When it comes to jewellery you love turning heads: from statement necklaces to chic gold bangles masterfully stacked and layered. This season, we have a new jewellery collection to satisfy your perfect-detail cravings. Inspired by vibrant 70s and 80s our Disco Jewellery Collection features an abundance of artisan gold rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets hand-hammered for a unique touch and set with gemstones for an Ottoman Hands twist on the party era of the past century.

So own that festival with your gorgeous wavy hair, shiny lipstick and gold cocktail rings! 

 

Mostly Bs. Practical Party Chic

Ottoman Hands Festival Style Tribes. Practical Party Chic

Who said practical festival dressing had to be boring? You certainly don’t think so! You seem to pull off a knock-out outfit with minimum effort and hassle, keeping the most important elements grounded (hooded parkas instead of crochet kimonos, and wellies instead of sandals). When choosing party wear you tend to sway between jersey T-dresses, chic skated skirts and washed out denim shorts.

You like keeping jewellery minimal, just a delicate touch of metal to highlight the tan: a pair of gold studs, a delicate chain necklace and maybe some slim stacking rings to layer. Our Neutrals Collection offers a chic take on minimal jewellery, with every piece lovingly handcrafted.

If you are looking for a new look to try this festival season, we would recommend to explore this season’s denim wonders. From frayed hemlines to the flares, thanks to its universally flattering appeal, denim with a slight retro character (think 90s grunge and 70s hippy chic) is definitely the trend to test. 

 

Mostly Cs. Rock Goddess

Ottoman Hands Festival Style Tribes. Practical Party Chic

Whichever look is on your festival fashion playlist — be it retro, grunge or glam, fierceness and fearlessness are essential. This rock goddess loves to get dressed with conviction: biker boots and army surplus store shirts and jackets over a body-con dress is one of the staples in your wardrobe. Whether you are rocking black jeans (distressed or skinny chic) or a leather skirt, your look always strikes the right chord. 

You have a wide collection of cool gems both gifted and meticulously collected and know how to layer them like a pro. May we tempt you with some gorgeously meaningful pieces from our Signs & Symbols Collection? From charming gold stacking rings with geometric design elements to minimal gold earrings and our favourites – gold symbol pendants (stars, suns, flower of life and many more).

Embrace your perfectly poised rock style by adding layers of gold jewellery and smouldering smokey eye (have you heard that slept-in smokey eye has been spotted on catwalks?!), and there you go, you’re on your way to set the festival on fire!

 

Mostly Ds. Bohemian Babe

Could it be her fashion majesty Kate Moss or Sienna Miller answering our questionnaire?! If not, we definitely have a new boho queen in town! From wondrous paisley print silk dresses and peasant style blouses to flower headbands and gorgeous face glitter, you know your lux hippy by heart. A bohemian magpie, you love your gemstone jewellery and cannot resist layering it with cool motive charms and pendants. You have come to the right place, our Festival Jewellery Collection has been created with you in mind! Discover your new season’s festival accessory wardrobe! Will it be gold chandelier earrings hand-set with vibrant semi-precious stones or Turquoise pendants suspended from silk cords? The world (and by that we mean Ottoman Hands world) is your oyster!

 

Of course no festival look would be complete without some gorgeous jewellery! Discover a selection of stunning semi-precious stone jewellery to add that perfect, bohemian touch to your wardrobe. So get ready, steady and dance…
