- DRESS TO KILL………………..”Shilpi Singh”
Each day is a page in your fashion story. Here is my story.
Back in school, I was always very fashion fashion conscious. Being one of the popular girls made it almost necessary to look perfect all the time. Though we had to wear the same uniform everyday, my friends and I, we knew how to work it. Low waist, short skirts, ankle length socks, well we’ve all been through that. And then we were introduced to the world of make up, hah. Kohled eyes, glossy lips, black nail, you know. Back then it was hot. Now that I think of it, uhh, Hell to the No!
After school I changed my entire wardrobe. The look was very simple though, the college look basically. Since I was always interested in fashion, I auditioned and became a part of the fashion society of my college as both, a designer and a model. In a couple of months I realized designing was not really my thing. I was better off looking pretty than trying to make others look pretty. In first year my style was more or less the same. I wasn’t much of a party person either.
Second year! Turning point of ny fashion story. After splitting from my long term boyfriend I wanted something exciting in my life. So, I changed my wardrobe, yet again! And this time I wanted to make sure I dress to kill. Well, I had all the reasons to do so. Dresses, gowns, tops, pants, jackets, jumpers, shorts, skirts, I bought it all. Since then, everyday, as I said, is a new page in my fashion story. Every night before sleeping I decide what I’ve to wear the next day, like we used to pack bags and finish homework before sleeping in school. I’m turning into a shopaholic. I am very fond of accessories and though I’m tall, I love wearing heels. Its just plain sexy. Black and gold are my signature colours. I drew a lot of inspiration from the gossip girl shows I used to watch earlier. My friends are just as crazy about fashion. Even when we have no place to go, we just dress up and put on make up, living the diva state of mind. Fashion, to me, is also a kind of high. People take note of what I wear, and I want to give them a show!
- DARING AAMIR TO STYLISH ANAND……………….”Anand Khurana’
We all have heard about how many people recklessly developed the craze for salman’s long mane after watching “Tere Naam” and then i got it chopped off with the scar when gajini hit the box office. I was one of them too. I believed that I was experimental with my looks and created a cool fashion statement for every1 else, never realising that the look was specially engineered keeping those film stars in mind. It was however, when 1 of my friend pointed out that the Gajini look didn’t suit me and made me look like a Flintstone, that I bothered to look into what I was actually doing. A room photo shoot later I was off to the market, looking for hair growth oils that could undo the Gajini disaster standing on my head. Well the oils didn’t work like a wonder but they made me realize an important point.
You don’t have to be a fashionista to know how to carry yourself, you have to be stylish and full of confidence. It’s something that suits your personality and enhances your attitude. Blindly following a star style, won’t turn you into a swan from an ugly duckling. Your attitude, confidence and a dash of smartness in the dressing sense can. The next time I visited a store, I was not buying the clothes and accessories for a superstar, I was buying comfortable and stylish clothes for the guy I am, ‘Anand’.
It’s not just about my fashion story, it’s about everyone’s fashion story and mind you, good Physical appearance doesn’t matter every time! It’s the overall sense that makes a person’s complete personality including the dressing sense, the civic sense, behavioural sense and empathy.
Style is the way you carry yourself and how good you feel about yourself.
There are many ways in which you can style up like:-
It can be a tattoo on your body,
It could be a hat, or it could be shades like aviators, sportswear or a wayfarer,
It could also be a Tie, blazer or sporty jacket! All these, only as long as the person you are is comfortable.
There is a very popular quote that
“The only real elegance is in the mind; if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it.”
So there is no need to overdo anything i guess this defines it, just keep it simple silly
- THE 3C GIRL- Color, Comfort and Confidence……….”Tanvi Nautiyal”
Imagine yourself looking at your entire wardrobe, a few hours from a glamorous party. We all know the sheer paranoia of choosing from a collection of your favorites over the years, of ruffling through clothes faster than a pirate digging for buried treasure. It doesn’t stop there, as each accessory is scrutinized and examined with dedication that we wish we’d show in our exams. Your waist is 26 but you hold your breath so that it becomes a 24, even if it means looking like you’re constipated and about to explode all night long. But ever wondered what makes us infinitely more conscious at that point of time? Or why the urge to look good suddenly comes to the fore? After all, fashion and clothing is an everyday affair, we don’t face that dilemma every day, do we?
The thing is, a fashion statement isn’t asserted once in a blue moon, at white collar parties and posh birthday bashes. In my opinion, a fashion statement reflects who and what you are, every single day, irrespective of where you are. The way you dress tells people a lot about how yourself, and we all know how important it is to send the right message across. So here are the three C’s of my fashion statement, elements that are always there at the back of my mind-
Colour: Undoubtedly the first thing on my list when I shop, its important to pick up something that exudes a strong vibe. Single colours like black, white and red stand out all by themselves, but also have powerful presences when combined in twos. The first thing the eye perceives is the colour of your attire, so its vital to choose wise and dress sharp. Like I said before, keep it simple, too many colours and you’ll end up looking like a circus clown or a castaway from Hawaii.
Comfort: One factor never to be compromised on, comfort is what determines how well you carry what you wear. Needless to say, if it feels good, it shows. No one is going to read the labels inside your top and scream “Oh my God! She’s wearing an XL!”
Other than that, what is uncomfortable holds only for a little time. After that, constant pulling and adjusting, accompanied a variety of facial expressions (ones you’re more likely to find on a weightlifter’s face) pass on the general idea. Body language works more effectively on many more levels than a dress which flatters your figure.
Confidence: Last but definitely not the least, confidence is what adds those vital touches of charm and poise. Whether it’s a cheap cotton scarf or a 200 dollar Louis Vuitton handbag, how gracefully you carry it depends on how much you believe in what you wear. Like Martin Charnin said, “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.”
