Indian glam

We finally decided to give our readers a glimpse of what we look like when we do some casual/urban Indian wear shopping. We met some of our beautiful readers and friends @ the W for Woman store in Colaba and helped them shop with various styling ideas. Since, the winters refuse to arrive, the cool and breathable clothes are a great options for both semi-formal and casual wear. You guys might want to check them out.

- It's a common misconception that you can pair your kurtas with only churidaars or patiala pants. Think out-of-the-box and re-invent your ubiquitous kurta.
- The umbrella kurta is very versatile and can also be worn as is as a dress. Simple layer with a matching skirt to play safe or add an edgy touch with a contrasting shade.
- The pairing with a blazer instantly adds a formal element to the look and also jazzes it up with the bright colour.
- An umbrella cut is mostly flattering on all body types, the amount of the volume should be monitored according to the frame, size of the hips and the height.

Jasleen wore her kurta with Pakistani pants

- Pakistani pants are a rage this season and you will see most kurtas and even wedding wear paired with these. Very versatile, these ankle pants are great with a long length kurta, in some cases where only about 2 inches of the pants are visible.
- The pairing of this kurta with pants instantly made it more wearable without a dupatta, with a churidaar this same look would look incomplete.
- These pants suit most body types, except the fact that the ankle length can make your legs look stubby and one look short. It is then advisable to wear kolhapuri wedges or pumps to add height.

  10. Life is all about happiness.And gifting presents are the best ways to say that you care.There are some of the fine gifts like pop-up arts & sculptors of Lord ganesha and Goddess Durga etcenhance the peace of any indian house.Especially, with changing trends of fashion, internet has paved way for online gift shop in india.It is also justified when Indian fashion and one's life is changing at a rapid pace.
