We are concerned for ourselves. Aren’t we? Well, your mirror knows the truth. And there’s nothing bad in it. Looking good is important because that’s part of your personality. From a school going kid to a granny in a bus fixates on the dress until they find a right match. As a woman, I understand the reason behind those creches on your forehead. But, nothing to worry about styling. There’s also a perfect fit to you off-shoulder top or flared palazzos. You just need the right eyes and I am going to lend mine. Here, I will walk you through the best styling tips. Keep up with me!

You are invited to a party. The venue is a pub. But that’s not your comfort zone. Office people will be there and no friends. Worried?! Don’t be. Here’s what you should wear.

A Trouser, flared palazzos and pants are the best picks. You are rigid and not vulnerable. So, these pants keep up with your personal and don’t let you lose control. You are fun to go with and to be around. And the stylish knot speaks your style. Now enough of formal pants. All you need to keep up with the spirit of the pub is a party top.  Go for off shoulder body fitting crop tops or cold shoulders like the one below.

Now, these sassy tops will fit the atmosphere while keeping you guarded. Neither do you come out as an introvert nor vulnerable.  The subtle approach will help you keep calm and light to enjoy the party your way. There are many other tops that you can pair your pants with like:

Styles At Life

The neck piece is complimentary. If you manage to pull this, then bam! you are perfect. Also, if you get a crop top in an off-shoulder pattern and then pair it with a boho neckpiece it will rock your look all over. You can walk out confidently without any inhibitions and if you are lucky enough then you might get a cool company in the pub. And you both can totally hit it off! Did I manage to draw an image in your mind? Well, I did in my mind and it’s a happy cum stylish image, believe me!

But we are not done here. We are yet to decide the footwear and make-up and hair. For footwears my personal best is pumps. A trouser is incomplete without a one strap heels or pump. Either of the two is the best choice.

Dillard’s

I understand not everyone is not comfortable with heels and rather is a flat foot type. Don’t worry, I have you covered as well.

Pinterest

Tada! how do you like this? Not too heavy on your ankles and easy to carry. Strappy wedges are the new trend. And it always comes handy. Keep your hair middle-parted and tied in a ponytail at the back and smoky eyes with nude lips and makeup like this:

StyleCraze

If you don’t wish to do smoky eyes then its fine for then you can go with deep shade lipstick and shun wearing earrings as you have already put on the boho neckpiece. And there, you are ready to go! Thank me later!

Alia Bhatt also posted on her Instagram wishing Masaba, her childhood friend happy birthday she wrote, “Happy Bday Maasssuuuuu.” Though Alia Bhatt was in Alibaug for Shahrukh Khan’s birthday bash she couldn’t stop herself from posting this picture.

Women in power, inner love, strength, friendship and loyalty is what the cover says and the Instagram caption of Bazaar Bride.

Her career has taken off and she is giving hits after hits and stealing the limelight. She is unstoppable, indeed. From sultry photoshoot to denim girl, bubbly cool teen to the bride to be, she pulls everything in place and delivers her role perfectly. The kingdom is certainly hers. And interestingly she is young and in her prime. Could it be any better?

Masaba Gupta just showcased her collection in Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017. Her style was brimming in “Raani Pink” and “Blue.” Caped real-life superwoman who struggle with real-life problems needs to have her collection in their wardrobes. She flaunted tribal and warli embroideries in her collection. Next this year in October 2017 at Amazon India Fashion Week she made her models walk on the ramp wearing silhouettes shift dresses paired with structured jackets. Athiya Shetty was the showstopper. She wore a black crop top with white flared high waist palazzos and a black and gold printed cape. Masaba Gupta is in line with Manish Malhotra and doesn’t settle for anything less but more.

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 concluded on August 20, 2017, but the season begins now. The festivity is in the air. The best is out on the ramp. And soon in your wardrobe. 33 Bollywood icons walked for their respective designers and here I will talk about 3 best picks from the show.

  1. Aditi Rao Hydari
boutiquesarees.com

She wears a brocade lehnga with flowy designs, a rich embroidered blouse and long ethnic shrug embroidered as well at the edges. The dress is by designer Jayanti Reddy. And the heavy high-necked neckpiece and ring jewellery add to the royalty. She ensembles the panache of a queen who takes pride in her persona. She keeps her hair middle-parted tied at the back with only two strands allowed to be loose. As it is she inherits the royal blood and the dress is her weapon.

2.  Kriti Sanon

News18.com

With gelled back hair and light jewellery, Kriti Sanon’s dress makes its place on the second place in the list. She walked in a lehenga with shimmering silver embroidery at the waistline and magenta lotus prints paired with ornate bralette by Arpita Mehra. Her slim body and the blue ruffled dupatta were complimentary. She went for everything light other that her deep-hued dress which balances out the appearance and therefore even the gelled back hair looks fit on the outfit. That is something not everybody will opt for but then again why keep doing the same thing. Jam it up like Kriti, instead.

3. Aditya Roy Kapoor

KFL Vanity

Aditya Roy Kapoor dons a black one-button velvet jacket with a contrast black embroidered lapels by ace designer Manish Malhotra. He keeps it all black and walks the ramp with an intense look surfacing the manliness blended with chivalry. The outfit is definitely a good pick for the festive season as the designer Manish Malhotra added a touch of glamour to this embroidered suit. It has all the confidence and elegance that is why it makes it to my list of top 3.
