the Party Sea­son!

reck­oner you’ll need...

Cosmopolitan (India) - - FAST GLAM -


Em­brace your in­ner glam girl by sparkling in star ap­pliqués or a se­quinned num­ber.

Jewel Tones

Emer­ald, sap­phire and amethyst make a night rich and



They’re mys­te­ri­ous, and an easy way to add edge to an out­fit ( or

hide a bad hair day).

Knee- High


The tall boot screams, ‘ I’m so sexy’! Wear with a mini to hide some leg, or tuck your cig­a­rette pants into them.

Inky Eyes

For in­stant al­lure, ap­ply a smokey eye­shadow to the cen­tre of the lid adding a mid­night shade to both lid cor­ners. Blend and up­date with a black eye pen­cil.


Every­thing is lady- like this sea­son, with sleeves longer, necklines higher and skirts graz­ing midi ter­ri­tory. Lots of lace makes for prim sex­i­ness.


Pay homage to the fash- for­ward by try­ing a white shift dress or a silky cream shirt. Or try some skinny, black leather pants for in­stant biker- chic.


Skin tones have been mak­ing waves for a while now, but for the evening, add party edge

with sexy sil­hou­ettes, fem­i­nine lace, or hints of

gor­geous shim­mer.



Who’s to say you can’t chan­nel your in­ner Snow White— or bet­ter yet, Bugs Bunny— this Christ­mas? Try an in­spired taffeta gown com­plete with glass slip­pers and wait for the clock to chime twelve. Cuter yet, go with bunny ears or cat ears— whiskers op­tional!


Fact: orange works beau­ti­fully on In­dian com­plex­ion. Plus, it’s the per­fect an­ti­dote to win­ter blues. In six words: back­comb, back- comb, back- comb! Pull the hair back, then add ear­rings to bal­ance the fierce­ness.


A touch of scar­let is per­fect for evening. Look for red ac­ces­sories to add pop to a neu­tral out­fit, or give your

lips some red- lovin’.


Marc Ja­cobs brought in the polka- dot hosiery and Stella Mc­cart­ney went dotty with polka ap­pliqués. Model

sheer blouse scat­tered with spots or scale- like dots on a se­quinned dress.


Struc­tured, ab­stract, flo­ral or pais­ley, the head- to- toe look is here to stay. Add a pair of plain heels or strappy stilet­tos to draw eyes to the out­fit it­self. Honourable ad­di­tion: ponytails!

X- rated

Fash­ion Week saw fetish at its freaki­est— with hand­cuffed bags, lace- up boots and see- through panels. Take a bite of the bold with some sexy sec­re­tary glasses, sheer blouses, and leather any­thing.


Boudoir chic, flirty shorts and vin­tage camisoles are brav­ing the run­ways, so en­joy Fall’s breeze in sexy un­der­wear. Try a bold, lacy bra or corset un­der a sheer blouse for in­stant up­date. De­light in plum, azure blue, rasp­berry or burnt si­enna. There’s some­thing about the drap­ing fab­ric that’s just so rich and pleas­ing.



There’s noth­ing like lus­trous waves to wow at a do. Mas­sage a vo­lu­miser into your towel- dried roots, then twist each sec­tion while blow dry­ing, scrunch­ing your hair as you go to amp up the tex­ture and vol­ume. Wrap se­lect sec­tions around a curl­ing iron for ex­tra oomph! Orange’s sun­nier sis­ter, yel­low is a cheery eraser for the win­ter blues. A yel­low dress may not be the per­fect New Year out­fit, but a yel­low bag or shoe most def­i­nitely is.

Zo­ol­ogy gy

An­i­mal forms are hot, and com­pletely partyap­pro­pri­ate when in hues like gold and sil­ver. Look for bags with an­i­mal clasps, an­i­mal- mo­tif cuffs, or for­est- y pen­dants. It’s zoo time!
