What to wear? Is this question troubling you….

You need to rush for a party; you have no clue what to wear. Infact most of us don’t know the difference and how they should dress depending upon the occasion. You cannot wear the same attire for an office party what you wear for a club. Check out one, two, three below…

One -Cocktail party: should be all about glamour, shimmer, sparkle all around. You have a bling bling sequence dress; it’s time to wear it now.  Even leather will do well, for this party. Club with a plain clutch bag and heels in contrast colours.

Two -House party: these parties are tricky, very tough to decide whether to dress up or go casual….so be safe dress up with something comfortable, bling it with shoes or bag. Flats will be a better option here. Dress up simple and stylish. The designer Shantanu and Nikhil has a lot in his collection for such parties.

Three -Office party: I would advice to be dressed up with smart formals. Bold colour dresses with belts and heels or may be high waist trousers with a cute top. Satin fabric dresses do quite well here. Don’t overdo with accessories. Studs will be enough with a clutch bag.

Color Blocking:

Using 2 or 3 colors on the same piece. Colour block fashion is one of the hottest new trends for the season. It combines the use of two or more blocks of colour in an ensemble. This could be for a top, bottom, tunic, a dress and even a handbag or shoes. Simply it means – creating an outfit by putting areas or blocks of solid color next to each other. It can include monotone, bright colours, muted colors, contrasting and complimentary colors.

Nina Garcia’s – Style Rules

In Nina Garcia’s book, “Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion”, which is out in stores now, Marie Claire‘s fashion director outlines what to wear to every imaginable occasion. Here are some of the rules to live by and more specifically dress by!

Always prepare for the unexpected.

Since you are always in the eye of the public, you have to pay close attention to what you wear. Every woman needs to stay on her toes in this era of cell-phone cameras and Facebook. Whenever you are in doubt about how you look for an errand run, ask yourself, if someone takes a photo of me, will I be OK with it hitting the Internet? If the answer is no, then redo your look.

When dressing for dramatic effect, do something surprising.

Don’t be afraid to mix things up by pairing a military-style jacket with a velvet skirt, vintage with modern, off-the-rack with couture, formal with casual. If you wear all black, add striking color with shoes or a bib necklace. Try to create an unusual silhouette with high-waisted, narrow trousers and a blousy top, or loose trousers with a fitted top and a bolero. As always, work with your figure; draping, pleats, and proportion can work miracles when it comes to hiding flaws and enhancing assets.

Style is like a muscle: You have to exercise it regularly or you’ll lose it.

Working from home or going on maternity leave is no excuse to let go of your look. The more you schlep around in drawstring pants and tees, the less you’re going to be able to pull yourself together when necessary. Likewise, the more you walk out of the house feeling like a million bucks, the more you are going to want to get out and make an impression. Think about dressing up, even for days spent around the house.
