Be A Self Style Guru

Among the hoard of dressing options that are available for women, most of us still feel a bereft of style after days of repetitive dressing patterns and lack of innovative outfits in our wardrobe. As much as we may like to deny it, but the fact remains that one can’t be undergo a makeover every day, so the most appropriate solution comes across as styling your wardrobe with creativity and innovation for a fresher and trendy approach. Stylists all over the world sing the song of fashion trends, however the primary decisive factor for all women remains comfort, ditch those passing fads and stick to your personal style to be able to carry what you look good in, here are a few tips which we think can be useful when you dress to impress.

 • If western wear fancies you more, investing in a couple of basic black and brown trousers is your best bet. You can always add variety by pairing these with versatile blouses and shirts in multiple designs and styles.

 • Consider your frame and dress accordingly. A gorgeous dress may not be the best outfit for you if it does not fit well but a well draped plain sari can add work wonders if it flatters your shape. Consider your body type before blinding following a trend in vogue. • For those who swear by only ethnic wear, the style statement may get monotonous after a while. Kill the monotony by dressing creatively. For instance, pair a fitted top with a Patiala and throw a matching dupatta for a fusion look or else alter your sari draped get up by replacing a blouse with a sleeveless or halter top.

 • Dig out those closet orphans that have been lying inside for ages and redefine your style by teaming them with different garments. For example, pick out that oversized tunic and wear a skinny jeans underneath it or that complement that old ghagra skirt with a tank top for some glamour.







• Accessorize your plain attires and sizzle in oomph. Add some funky belts in fluorescent colours or throw together a few pieces of statement jewellery.

• Redefining style using stoles and scarves also goes a long way, tie them around your waist as a belt, or below your chest to create an illusion of an empire line or drape it with a knot around your neck. Great style is not just about a never ending wardrobe that is tip to toe in sync with the season’s trends but it is more to do with bringing versatility into the same outfits by mix and match and some creative thought.

• Working women can add a zing of panache to their wardrobes by adding accessories such as silk scarves, broad belts ( tie over skirts or denims), stoles to add some substance to any outfit( ethnic or western) and the latest rage, statement jewellery. Dig out those granny precious stone rings and necklaces and add grace to their attire.

• Invest in quality lingerie, keeping in mind that you primarily need well fitted pieces for work, a couple of glamorous ones for special occasions and of course the strapless versions for revealing blouses and tops.
• Heels can not only make you look taller but also lend a touch of grace and femininity to your posture, however if you refrain wearing heels for the lack of comfort, try sporting platform wedges. These are smarter options that add height and are easy to walk in too.
• When it comes to make up, just stick to basics, a good compact to cover any flaws, organic non smudge kohl for daytime and a waterproof liner for evening can do the trick. Highlight your lips with a pastel lip colour for work and bold reds and coppers for parties.
