  • Fashion Trends In Monsoon

    3

    The clouds have darkened the sky, and you are sipping tea, wondering what to wear this rainy season. You certainly don’t want to ruin your classic silk shirt, and denims seem too sticky and clingy all of a sudden. ‘Tis monsoon, baby! Time to try out other fabrics, other styles Monsoon is certainly welcome after the hot summer cooling, but it is also humid, and it brings with it, mud. So the trend this monsoon is to be practical and stylish.

    Put away your silks, your heavy brocades, and your denims, because these cling. Bring forth the light cottons, polyester blends and gabardines. Light fabrics do not cling when wet and they dry up fast, so they are the ideal fabrics for the monsoons. Now, to pick out the colours. Let the dark clouds be the greys in your day, your attire should be vibrant. Embrace the bright, eschew the dull. This monsoon, the fashion is monochrome. Get yourself some bright monotones, and pair them with floral accessories and shoes. Choose from the most dazzling shades of red, yellow, orange, blue or green for your shirts and tops. For your bottoms, avoid whites and other light shades. Surely you do not want to be seen in mud speckled pants. Rather, choose dark shades that can camouflage any specks of dirt.

    Let ‘above the ankle’ be your motto in the rains. Put away your long dresses, sweeping skirts, full length pants, (you don’t want to sweep mud as you cross the puddle, and soaked hemlines do not add to beauty) and don some short skirts, shorts, hot pants, capris, or at least fold the hems of your long pants. For the more formal look, choose slim fit pants, as they are the rage now. Their exact length and narrow bottoms will enhance the entire look. For the trendy men out there, the in things this monsoon are checks and stripes for the formal look, and chevrons and tie-and-dye prints for casual wear.

    What about footwear this monsoon? Usually, leather and canvas shoes can get spoiled when wet, yet, for most men, leather shoes are unavoidable as office wear. Just make sure that the soles of your leather shoes are thick and wide. For others who want to be most stylish, don’t forget that apart from making a fashion statement, you want to make sure that your feet remain mess free. Fret not that you will have to wear gumboots.

    Thanks to PVC, foot attire has become not only stylish, but hassle free. Brands like CROCS are a great option, but so are others, which offer an astounding range of colours and styles from slip-ons, to floaters and sandals. Your feet can look just as bright and colourful as the rest of you, but still be comfortable and dry in this wet season.

    And don’t forget the most important accessory this monsoon – a lively umbrella. And now what are you waiting for? The rain showers beckon—go get wet!

  • How Important Is It For Women To Wear The Right Undergarments?

    1

    Christian Dior once said that “without foundation, there can be no fashion” and he was definitely not wrong about it. Your underwear provides the very foundation upon which your entire style and appearance is based upon.

    All About Straps, Snaps, Bands, and Cups

    Finding the right bra doesn’t have to be an ordeal if you know the basics of bra sizing. The two components of bra fitting are the band size and the cup size.

    The band size is the part of the bra that runs across a woman’s chest and around her back. Measure around your bra directly under your bust after expelling all air from your lungs.

    The cups are the parts of the bra that hold the breasts. The difference between the band size and the bust size is the cup size. Bras come in many sizes, which are different combinations of the chest sizes (shown as these are 32, 34, 36, etc) and cup sizes (shown as letters — AA, A, B, C and so on).

    It’s important to get both the band and cup sizes right to ensure a proper fit. Cups that are too small will compress the breasts and force them to bulge out from the sides. And cups that are too big can wrinkle and pucker, which won’t look good under clothes.

    3

    You should pay special attention to the hooks, wires and straps- the thicker the shoulder straps, the more support it provides! You may also want to try on a T-shirt over a bra you are thinking of buying to get the finished effect. Get a bra that complements your outfit. The color of your bra is also very important.

    The most important thing to remember in choosing a bra is comfort. Getting a bra that fits right is not only important for a great look, but also to maintain good breast health. Wearing a badly fitted bra can actually make you ill! Both headache and neck pain can be caused by a wrong sized bra.

    Right pair of panties

    Gone are the days when your underwear options were limited to black or white, brief or bikini. Now it seems that there are panty options in droves. Determining proper panty size depends on two factors- waist measurements and hip measurements.

    2

    Decide how important comfort is to you. Briefs, boy shorts, and ladies boxers are the least constricting styles. Take the fabric into consideration. Polyester provides the most support, dries quickly and is great for workouts. Spandex or Lycra provides the most seamless look. Silk and satin are pretty, but must be hand-washed. Cotton is more hygienic because it’s breathable.

    A panty crotch should fit naturally against your body. It should not be so tight that they cause grooves along your thighs. Make sure your buttocks are well cupped!

    The wrong under-garments can ruin your look, but the right ones will give you license to wear just about anything by accentuating your figure to its best advantage!

  • Why To Opt For Designer Clothes? Best Kolkata Fashion Designers Shares Notes!

    There is a well known saying – “Clothes maketh a man”. In fact wherever you go, whatever you do, you are always adjudged by what you are wearing. A lot can be said and determined by just looking at the clothes you are wearing and your style sense. Whether you are modern in your thoughts or conventional, whether you are an outgoing person or an introvert, and also the amount of time and effort you put in to doing anything, can all be made out by just looking at your clothing.

    Take for example; you are going for an interview for a job in a reputed concern. If you are not dressed properly in front of the interviewers, then they draw an impression of you not taking things seriously, because most of them have a thinking that, if you do not take the least amount of effort to pull out the right shirt and tie for the occasion, how will you be able to tackle more important and significant things in the office.14

    Most of the people are of the impression that designer clothes and accessories are only meant for the models in the fashion industry. This is exactly where they go wrong. Fashion is term which has different meanings for everyone. For some, it maybe clothes they feel comfortable in, for others it maybe the latest trend in the market, for others still it may be sticking to one particular style that goes best with their image. Thus, while designing clothes, a fashion designer has to take care of every such possibility that the buyer can search for in a set of clothing, be it the comfort, style, trend or color. And the designer who does it best, is usually the popular one in the fashion industry.

    2

    Designer clothes need not always be flashy or revealing, as usually tagged by most people. Designer clothes are just better tailored and designed so as to fit you better and make you look good in. The simplest of clothes that you wear can also be found in the designer clothes category, and you will notice the difference the moment you try them out.

    1

    Designer clothes can also be chosen from to stand out in crowd. It is usually seen that when you are in an environment where you are strictly in a dress code, you realize that even your costliest apparel looks very ordinary in the crowd. The possibility to wear something different in terms of looks, style and fashion can only be had if you choose from designer wear.

    2

    The fashion designers spend a lot of time researching the latest trends in the global market, along with sufficient focus on the comfort of the wear and the season they are to be designed for. Thus, they make some excellent pieces of fashionable and comfortable clothes that you would not find in normally tailored or market stitched clothes. It is therefore advised that whatever be the occasion you are choosing to buy clothes for, always stick to designer clothes to get greater value for money.

  • Tips On Choosing The Right Accessories: Select The Right Bangles With Your Dress

    Indian style of dressing has been admired by people all across the globe. The effort and sense of styling that goes into making the Indian attire is commendable and so are the accessories that accentuate these outfits.

    2

    These accessories not only look beautiful but add to the persona of the wearer making the person look outstanding. The bangles are one such accessory which is worn by the women. It’s usually made of metals like gold, silver, and platinum but at times they are also made of other materials like glass, plastics, and woods amongst others.

    1

    Wearing bangles made of precious metals is an expensive affair and often this is not safe too. Most women prefer wearing either metal or glass bangles or permutation of both. Low-priced bangles made from plastic are gradually substituting those made by glass, but the glass variants are still preferred at customary occasions. The bangles goes well with most of the Indian attires like saree and salwar suits, however with more and more women opting for western wear, colourful bangles made from fiber are a rage. Suited for all ages and dresses, bangles add that feminine appeal. Kadas as a single ornament can add elegance to an otherwise uninteresting attire.

    1

    Remember like everything in dressing up even selecting the right accessory is a matter of introspection. Bangles might be a popular accessory but it is not an easy task to select the right bangle. So what goes with your dress needs to be ascertained first before you select the right bangle. For instance if you are going for a formal interview and want to wear something in your hand a single bangle is a good choice. If otherwise it is a date with your loved one you can opt for a bohemian chic look and in this case a number of colorful bangles is the best choice. Color of bangles is yet another important consideration – select a color that accentuates the color of your dress.

    Finally remember choosing the right bangle can contribute a lot toward making you look like a diva and so ignore it at your own risk!!
