Ed­i­tor’s Let­ter

Cosmopolitan (India) - - CONTENTS -

Of­ten enough, I’m asked about my def­i­ni­tion of style. And over the years, my an­swer has re­mained con­sis­tent...play­ing with the right ac­ces­sories! To me, a great bag, shoe, or piece of jew­ellery is a mir­a­cle-maker, trans­form­ing a hum­ble jeansand-tee combo into the per­fect lunch out­fit, and tak­ing a reg­u­lar lit­tle black dress from reg­u­lar to just right for an im­por­tant cock­tail event.

Of course, ac­ces­sories have been given VIP sta­tus for decades now (just ask Coco Chanel), but now, more than ever, I’m notic­ing a strong lean­ing to­wards dec­o­rat­ing, with bolder pieces rul­ing the roost (state­ment neck­laces, sculp­tural shoes, heav­ily em­bel­lished bags...) It may have some­thing to do with sim­pler sil­hou­ettes and trends rul­ing the run­ways, but re­gard­less of the rea­son, you won’t find me diss­ing the power of ac­ces­soris­ing.

So you can imag­ine how ex­cited I am about this Ac­ces­so­rySpe­cial is­sue of where fash­ion team Arad­hana Baruah and Rashi Verma have left no store un­turned to bring you the most ex­cit­ing ex­tras around. On page 194, you’ll find the best shoe, bag, and jew­ellery trends for the sea­son, and on page 65, the ac­ces­sory la­bels is ab­so­lutely ob­sessed with. Then, on page 137, pre­pare to be well jeal­ous of the stylish girls whose shoe wardrobes are to-die-for. Ready for some fab­u­lous fash­ion? Me, too. In fact, don’t be sur­prised if you find me stand­ing in the check­out queue, right be­hind you!

Till next month,
