This mon­soon, step out in style

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Mon­soons are here and so are par­ties. To get your style state­ment right, this sea­son, opt for fit­ted bodycon dresses with high hem­lines and metal­lic colours. Here are some style tips sug­gested by ex­perts:

High hem­lines are your friends in the rainy sea­son. Fit­ted bodycon dresses or miniskirts with a metal­lic top are rec­om­mended. If go­ing for a semi-for­mal look, try re­plac­ing trousers with a nice pair of cu­lottes.

Oo­dles of colours — be it in solids or strong prints — go a long way.

Opt for a crop top with dhoti pants for the dance party as the out­fit will give a ease to your body and is also breath­able.

Don’t for­get to pop the en­tire look with metal­lic ac­ces­sories, tas­sel ear­rings or a side tas­sel sling bag to add the much-needed drama. Metal­lic works well with ac­ces­sories to cre­ate a funky party look.

If the party is in­doors, wear palaz­zos and a sleeve­less top to look fash­ion­able. If the party is out­door, wear loose hot pants and a tank top with slip­pers. A crop top with high-waisted pants would also work for a party scene.

Adding a graphic punch to the look via stripes will add a fun fac­tor and make the out­fit in­ter­est­ing, but keep ev­ery­thing else to a bare min­i­mum, in­clud­ing makeup.

Em­brace su­per-glossy metal­lic for the night adding oomph to the out­fit. Think be­yond gold and sil­ver and team it up with rose gold, cop­per for dif­fer­ent up­beat looks.

Shirt dresses are a great party choice. They are light and airy. They can eas­ily be dressed down for a dance party and some ac­ces­sories can kick it up a notch.

Avoid stilet­tos or any high heels. Go for wedges or flats as they can be much more com­fort­able.

Pair a long, asym­met­ri­cal, loose fit­ted kurta with slim fit pants or short kur­tas with jeans for the party look.

For a cool, casual look, pair an in­die top with slim fit pantsor a short kurti with flo­ral palazzo.

In terms of fab­ric, pure cot­ton, silk, mul, chif­fon, ny­lon, ge­or­gette are best for this sea­son.
