The fashion forecasters say that the geometric prints are here to stay; you might as well ace the look.

Be bold and add a dash of eye-catching vim to your wardrobe with geometric prints. The ethnic wear has been turned into a work of art with its playful and bold geometric shape and bright colours. Versatile and easy-to-wear fabric, the bold coloured circles and squares add a contemporary twist.

Geometric print clubbed with minimalistic jewellery is back in vogue. Here I chose to pair it with a metallic silver statement earring  and my baaju band which is my personal style to add up a glamorous touch.

Getting your look right for all the different occasions in your life is all about knowing the art and science of clothing.

With all the fiascos about Justin Trudeau choice of attire during his visit to India, I guess a little guide line on what to wear, when would help.

No matter which country you are visiting, wear what you are comfortable in, provided you are aware of and respect the local customs. You don’t have to completely adopt their clothing style. Adapt what you like about their styles and make it your own, like what Michelle Obama and Ivanka Trump did with their colourful and printed dresses while their India visit.

Mr. Justin Trudeau’s look while meeting the Indian women’s ice hockey team, Good….  Mr. Justin Trudeau’s look while meeting the Bollywood stars, an absolute no …no… He looked a little too inspired by our Bollywood wedding attires.

While you are choosing attire the most important aspect to keep in mind is its appropriateness. In Image consulting we call the it 4 A’s of Image management. Appropriate, Attractive, Authentic and Affordable. If you get this right, you are bang on with your look no matter what the occasion.

If you are travelling on a business purpose never miss to layer to create a look of authority. It could be with a jacket or a cardigan or even a long scarf with detail.  During the course of your stay, if you are expected to attend different events which varies from formal to casual, the trick is to add on a layer for your formal look and taking off the layers and keeping it simple for the casual look.

If you are a person who loves colour, the dark muted colours are the way to go to keep it formal. Our Prime Minister Mr. Modi does it just right when it comes to clothing. Along with the colour make sure you get your patters right if you are found of prints. Small geometric patterns will give you a formal look . And floral prints or any curvy patterns give you a casual look.  Do it right and that will take care of the attractiveness ie,. the second “A” of Image management.

The third “A” Which is very important for me is the authentic look you create with your attire. Don’t let the attire wear you.  Make the attire your Own with your authentic style: This is where you bring in your personal style. Be it with your favourite colour or your favourite print or the way you layer with your favourite fabric. Do you have a trade mark style. Like Kate Middleton’s trade mark knee-high boots or Modi’s colourful tunic.

The fourth ‘A’ being affordable:  Choose your brand based on your budget, roles and your goals.

The secret to appropriate dressing is to keep the four A’s in mind and apply your sense or colour and prints and you are ready to face any occasion in your life chins up.

And if you are still in doubt, call your Image Consultant.

The retro look

IMG_20170315_221931_295.jpg

80’s were defined by the unique blend of different styles, especially the over –the-top clothing in bold colors and patterns. Everything in the 80’s had to be big, bold and loud. So any outfit that includes bright color contrast, extravagant designs with shoulder pads or puff sleeves will nail the look.

The old school fashion fascinates me. It helps us reconnect with a past which was not nearly as complicated. I feel it’s amazing the way these designs can be showy and casual at the same time.  The classic cut and design of many retro style dresses makes them very easy to wear as well.

I am a huge fan of belts. A belt is an easy, versatile way to really make your outfits look unique and interesting. A wide belt is one of the most flattering and eye-catching accessories when paired with the right outfit, especially worn with a poodle or swing skirt. Keep in mind that wide belts won’t work with every outfit, but if paired well they look awesome.

Here I went for Unique Vintage cocktail polka dotted dress with poodle skirt and fitted bodices.  I had accessorized it with a wide buckle waist belt, which looks absolutely perfect for hopping across the dance floor.
