The Red Goddess

Red is always been the most fantastic color for everyone. It’s like Black; good for all, and it gives you energy, passion and makes you feel full of life. It’s very rare for girls to dislike Red.

My love for this color stems from the time when I was a student in IIFT, New Delhi. Red made unforgettably striking impression on me. I remember one of my shows in New Delhi in 1994, where, with fascination I beheld a very beautiful model dressed in red velvet saree, she was gorgeous Ashwarya Rai, among all other colors worn by the other women, and she appeared to be unique, standing out in all her splendor. I have never forgotten her. For me she became the Red Goddess.

I think a women dressed in red is always magnificent. In the middle of a crowd, she is the quintessential beauty.

A fantastic color for every skin tone, RED always exudes a luxe feel. In this very powerful color you can set the fashion circuit ablaze any time, be it with a flirty dress for a Sunday brunch or a cocktail sheath dress for a swanky party.

TIP: After wearing red dress, make sure to wear minimal make-up with it and keep your hair away from your face.

Refreshing White

Its true that dark colors do make you slimmer, however, pristine white can also do the same. Part from being the premier color, its also one of my favorite color. White will always remain fashionable, in summers, go for linen and satin, also lycra with tomes of silver.

If you have good height, try cropped chiffon blouse, and satin warp skirt in white. The hue will give you girly and flirty look. Be naughty and wear short blouse and long skirts and let some skin show, and break the color.

On the formal side of dressing, try use of silver threads, metallic embellishments on winter fabrics like matka silk and linen, all fabrics in white, and you will make a strong statement on the podium. Try experimenting two different hues of white, like off white with broken white, in drapes and frills. Silver with white is futuristic and ethnic.

The Black Magic

Black is the color of authority and power. It is popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. Black also implies submission. Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Some fashion experts say a woman wearing black implies submission to men. Black outfits can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof or evil. Villains, such as Dracula, often wear black.

The “Little Black Dress” in western party-wears or casual wears came into being since 1920-s by the renowned fashion designer Coco Chanel. Women used it as a day-time wear with simple accessories and day make-up. The same dress could be a marvelous evening-wear with sparkling jewelry  and a shade louder make-up. Black is a color that could be contrasted with a wide range of colors.

Black  Party-wear Sarees can be crafted out of printed Georgette. They can also be fashioned out of fine net and crepe. The embroidered Sarees could be perfect for opulent parties or weddings.

Black Casual Sarees are usually in faux Georgette.

Kurtis with long floor-length skirts and trousers looks stunning. Girls prefer black Kurtis with light denim or cotton trousers for parties. Black printed skirts are also elegant casual wears, complemented by white, beige or other light colors. Black with red, blue and purple shades, are stunning concoctions at evening parties.

    • Pawan, nice to see you on the blog, well talking about Red, its favorite color of mine and rest of Indians, so Red was first, Black and White are basic ingredient for Fashion Designers worldwide for their recipes of garments. So we talked about Black as magic color, and White as refreshing color for body and soul. Later part of-course would be Hues, Tints and Tones of RGB.

  • Fashion Dictums

    > The Human Shape is not necessarily the guideline for the silhouettes, nor is symmetry.
    > Add your own style punch to an ensemble with some kookie accessories and sharp color accents that add energy to your winter wardrobe
    >Old is new with a few exaggerations, some deconstructions, a few trims and a lot of irreverence.
    > Never lose sight of your roots. It's where your original style emanates from.
    > Mix up masculine and feminine detailing for maximum impact.

  • Lips Tips

    Lip care should be taken even in summer since lip problems are manifested not only in winter season, but also in summer. It is because lips get dried up soon due to the heat in summer.
    * Take half cup rose petals and make a paste of it by mixing with milk. Apply this paste to lips regularly. Natural ingredients present in it will keep the lips smooth always.
    * To a spoon of butter, add turmeric and paste in at night time. Change can be seen on regular usage.
    * Lips turn black due to heat in summer. Take Saffron Kesar and mix it with curd. Apply this curd to lips daily two or three times a day. Lips get good color.
    * Dried lips should be applied with almond and coconut oil mixed in same quantities. Lips will be moist for more time by this.
    * Wash the lips with tooth brush weekly once. Dead cells at that place will be removed by this.

  • Nail Layering

    Have you ever tried layering different shades of nail polish?
    This works best if you start with a distinct color as a base, for example, lush red, dark blue or purple.
    When the base layer is dry, add a transparent, brighter color. This will make it last longer and give you an unique nail hue.

  • MAKE-UP Moves – The 60s Retro Looks

    Eyes: Use your eyeliner well, either in black or the many colors available in the market.

    Lips: Gloss for the day and cream or velvety finish for the night.

    Hair: Keep the hair simple with a hint of the 60s. More chic and modern. Use a wide headband with your hair pulled back into a pony or bun.

  • Try Moccasins

    Girls are beautiful and they naturally want to enhance their looks. Shoes are a few of their best accessories. Some of them are so addicted to shoes that they almost crave all available designs. If you are looking for simple shoes for casual uses, please try moccasins. These are good shoes to wear with a pair of trousers.
    You can even buy a good shoe pair to complement your costume. Unlike adult women, girls can wear moccasins with a skirt or a dress. Girls find it easy to enhance their appearances than big women do. The mature ladies would somewhat look odd if they team up moccasins with dresses or skirts.
