Understanding your dressing sense
your body type to find out how to dress -
Go for dark colours. You don't have to agonise too much about
avoiding A-line cuts or silhouettes if you take care the cut
is neat and the colour is not too bright or pale -expands
your girth. If you must wear light shades than choose antiques
- dirty blue, and not the sky blue. Blouses: cover your arms.
Beiges and fawns. Antique gold. These colours also suit all
skin tones - so the ideal Indian colours. Anything goes with
this body shape - be it the very in georgette saree or the
out-of-fashion satin. Blouses: Nets can hide the folds in
Any colour. And that means you can wear all the colours of
this season - the entire spectrum of vibgyor and the antiques
- pinks, fawns, blues, golds. Blouses:straps are fine, while
Your wardrobe is determined greatly by your value for:
Comfort is a great thing but don't hide your assets in loose,
drab and banal cuts all the time. If so, use bright colours
and pretty prints to bring out your personality. And if you
can't resist wearing the same old kurta every week because
it has a soft feel to it then spike it up with a different
dupatta, a fancy bag, or some bold makeup.
Your wardrobe has items of clothing appropriate for any and
every occasion. You dress up creatively, instinctively and
originally. However you should be able to carry it off. For
example, a tight outfit on a very fat body is mostly hideous.
Good style is about complimenting you and the occasion.
Are you a victim, do you see it in the magazines and it's
yours? If so, then make sure to make your sprees worthwhile
by purchasing things that are practical and lasting. Whilst
shopping , buy clothing that is conducive to your style, mixable
and classic as well.
Get adventurous with your sari. Dress it up with a blouse

How would you describe yourself?
Shy/ traditional Stick to the safe classicism of a saree,
with deep boat necks, deep square necks - and traditional
shades of silver and gold.
Layered sarees, with double pulavs - incorporating the saree
and dupatta into one piece. Bustiers and corsets double up
Opt for saris worn like sarongs in soft and subtle fabrics,
crystal embroidered corsets with unembroidered satin French
lilly chiffon saris. Spaghetti-strap blouses. Criss-Cross
blouses for you, with transparent georgette sarees.
Make sure the colour's right for you. The difference between
glowing and gaudy lies in a whisper of a shade.
What's your skin tone?
Fair: Pale shades of gold, highlighted with a touch of copper,
look best on you.
Medium/ Wheatish: A mixed palette of whitish, beige-toned
and deep bronzy shades of gold will make you look radiant.
Dark: Coppery shades of gold work best for you, as they highlight
your dusky complexion.
