It is said, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” Fashion comes and goes but your style is your own USP.
You can go with the flow of day-to-day fashion statements that you see, read or follow from people surrounding you, fashion magazines or even celebrities but ultimately it’s your own style that defines you.
Let’s have a sneak-peak into some mandatory style quotes and what goes into following them:
Be the Miss/Mr Right for every occasion
Well, most people face the dilemma of what to wear for what occasion. But it’s best to stick to the right clothes for the right occasion.
Tees are fine for lounge parties or informal gatherings but preferably full-sleeved shirts and trousers for work!
Similarly, ladies, save the cocktail dresses and bodycons for parties.
Wear pastels in summer, bright colours in winter, a saree or lehenga at weddings and short skirts or dresses at parties.
Wearing sports shoes with shorts at parties for men is a strict no-no. Similarly, wearing casuals or denims at a royal wedding for women.
Do not mix them up!
The right fashion accessory
Wearing a great embroidered lehenga choli with the wrong accessory spoils the entire effort!
Follow haute couture but with taste.
Basically, if the attire is heavy and ornate, keep the accessories light, and if the attire is light, pair it up with statement jewellery.
Wear kundan jewellery with an embroidered saree or a zardozi lehnga. Pair a simple pastel saree with silver or pearl jewellery.
Men, be sure to get those shoes right. What creates the greatest impression is when you are pairing T-shirts with sneakers or formal T-shirts with loafers. Stay true to the occasion and the rest will take care of itself.
It’s important to have a few neutral footwear options in your capsule collection, such as a white sneaker, nude heel, black flat, and black or brown boots).
Turn to jewelry to add a little sparkle to your look. If you are new to jewelry, start with a subtle piece of jewelry like little diamond studs, thin hoop earrings, or a delicate pendant necklace—classic pieces that will work with almost anything.
Different bags are appropriate for different occasions. If you have handbags in varied styles and colors, you’ll always have a unique accessory.
Whether you choose a narrow or wide belt, a simple belt or one with embellishments, defining your waistline with a belt is one of the easiest ways to make an outfit look more polished.
Don’t overdo the makeup
Make sure not to overdo the makeup. Dark cherry or blood red lipsticks with bold smokey eyes will only make you look older and loud.
Pair smokey eyes with nude or pale lipstick that matches with your skin tone. Keep the eye make-up light while using heavy and vibrant lipsticks in red, maroon or purple.
Don’t forget the mascara and keep the kaajal light. Most importantly, go for a foundation that matches your skin tone.
Be yourself, be beautiful!
Linger with the correct lingerie
The best innerwear is something that contributes much to your style statement and the wrong lingerie can undo the best fashion attire.
Check out various options like sports bras, T-shirt bras, push up bras and strapless bras, according to your bust size, to ensure you stand proud, literally!
Hairdo it perfectly
A correct hairstyle can make or break a look. Daily office look hairstyles should be a messy bun, a soft braid or even a simple ponytail, while party hairdos should break the monotony of your daily look and should add sparkle to your look.
Go for blow dried open hair, soft curls or even perfectly ironed hair. Men remember to style your hair according to the occasion and the shape of your face.
Smelling clean and perfect is important in terms of making an impression as well as hygiene. Choose your perfumes on your preferences. Woody or floral, musky or Oriental.
If you are brand-new to fragrances, think about the other distinctive smells that you enjoy in your life, especially ones in products you use on your body. The coconut shampoo at your gym? Your fresh and tea tree body wash? The lavender essential oil your friend gifted you? The musky smoke in incense? These can all serve as a great starting point to finding your ideal scent. Search for fragrances with those notes like the ones you love in your other products.
Perfume brands we would recommend are Estee Lauder, Nina Ricci, Davidoff, Body Shop, Titan Skinn or Armani. There are also other pocket-friendly perfumes available in the market, all you need is to smell and choose.
