Women’s clothing has a myriad of options, the kind that only continues to grow with each passing season. But despite this, we usually fall short when it comes to reinventing our own unique styles or using old clothes to create new looks. Well, not anymore. Here are a few quick tips that can help you create stunning looks in no time.
A stole to steal the show
Stoles are an essential part of women’s clothing. When it comes to ethnic wear, it’s simply the traditional dupatta or head cover, revamped. A stole is an excellent fix to drab and dull outfits. Think your top is too dull or your ensemble lacks style? Simply add a stole with bright prints and make your outfit look great! The best part? Stoles can be wrapped in many ways – the more twisted, the better. A quick online tutorial should show you how.
Ethnic jackets first made an unexpected arrival into women’s clothing. And today, with the unexpected success it has had, ethnic jackets are in for the long run. Celebrities from Alia Bhatt to Kareena Kapoor have been spotted donning ethnic jackets. It’s a versatile piece of women’s clothing that deftly combines western and ethnic wear. In fact, a heavy, embellished jacket can change you from Plain Jane to party-ready in a matter of seconds.
Those who know how to work this accessory have life easy. An oft-ignored and undermined part of women’s clothing – belts are available in many styles and colours. The trick lies in pairing it with the right outfit and perhaps, even adding a couple of fancy knots to it. Team it with a dress shirt, a plain kurti or even a maxi dress to give it an added edge.
There’s an easy way to create new looks without buying more clothes. It’s called layering and you can do it by mixing and matching different kinds of clothing. You could, for instance, wear a tube top over a crisp white shirt, wear a gingham shirt over a turtleneck top; team a front-tie denim shirt with women’s dress, and so on. The possibilities are endless and that means you get to create as many new looks as your imagination will allow.
High heels and confidence usually go hand in hand. Black stilettos work great for an evening of fine dining. Red peep-toe heels can make a dull outlook look vibrant. A pair of neon wedges, perhaps, for a chic look? The options are endless. When in doubt, choose high heels and experience the difference. Try it!
