the Party Season!
reckoner you’ll need...
Embrace your inner glam girl by sparkling in star appliqués or a sequinned number.
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).
The tall boot screams, ‘ I’m so sexy’! Wear with a mini to hide some leg, or tuck your cigarette pants into them.
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
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!
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.
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!
