“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” –Coco Chanel
Such an apt line to start my blog. Before I was merely a fan of Chanel’s couture line but now became an ardent follower of her catchy quotes.
Well the hot question is what does fashion means to you? And popular answer would be “everything that I feel comfortable in”. What a cheesy line. People tend to forget this precise line is itself their fashion statement. I wonder how much percentage of girls are really not interested in cloths and would not want to look beautiful. Hardly any if they are true to themselves. Previously it was just a girl’s thing but nowadays boys are as conscious as of girls. They are not afraid of experimenting on their looks, cloths, haircuts or even on whiskers. Particularly youngsters, who spares time to go online or check on the latest vogues & update knowledge on upcoming trends.
But I believe it should not be dead with age catching up. There is no time boundation when it comes to being stylish. Trends and fashion do change with age but it’s not the end of it. As the quote says “You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”
Generally in our country when a woman enters her motherhood period, society wants her to deck up in certain ways & discourage fashion in all sense. And sometimes it’s herself who loses all interest with time. I know few of them who blame on being too fatty, or lack of time or just being lazy. Wake-up girls, motherhood or being a professional is a part of life’s phase not end of it. “Being forty means to get naughty”
Fashion is a much maligned, misunderstood beast. People have myths & misconceptions about the art of styling.For looking good you DO NOT
-Need couture or highly branded cloths
-Need to be slim or in shape to experiment on any new style
-Need to follow the trends rather create your own
-Need to overdo in order to tag yourself fashionable
-Have to wear only westernized cloths
A style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. There are simple fashion ethics which I follow.
-Pick a dress according to the occasion with selection of colors keeping in mind. Yes colors play a very important role.
-Keep a bag of junk jewellery in your cabinet. It should not need to be expensive. Mix match with your dress.It will enhance your apparel outfits.
-If you are not a bling person, you can complete your ensemble with a nice handbag or pumps.
-Beware bad hair day can really spoil your moments. Wear a style easy to manage for you.
-Makeup needs to be minimal. Either do your lips or your eyes. Use bold cosmetics only if you can carry off well.
Keep the above in mind and we are good to go.
