Ace the shirt with lehenga trend

It’s not easy to be a trendsetter. It takes a lot of courage and an eye for good fashion aesthetics! While we truly admire the women of Haryana to be our inspiration, we’d also like to acknowledge our designers like – Manish Malhotra & Anita Dongre for bringing this concept into the limelight and with so much panache!

Lehengas are outfits usually worn for weddings or really traditional ethnic gatherings. So its obvious that this garment required a makeover in terms for it being re-used and also adding a dash of uniqueness so that it doesn’t look drab every time one decides to wear it.

The most innovative way in which this could be tackled was to replace the choli or blouse with something more wearable. The best fit for this seemed to be the shirt, it changes the traditional appeal of the lehenga giving it a more semi-casual or a bohemian look.

Our first reflection of this trend seems to be inspired from the Haryanvi women of rural Haryana.

Here are a few ways in which you could accessorize your look while wearing this trend.

  • Wearing a chunky neckpiece on a plain shirt would be a superb choice provided your lehenga skirt isn’t very embellished.
  • If you are up for some uber cool fashion, teaming your lehenga with a shirt and a pair of boots could definitely give you some good compliments!
  • If you like a mix of the traditional ethnic look wearing this trend with a nathani could be your next best option.

We recently saw Huma Qureshi  wearing a full sleeved blue collar silk shirt along with a lavender Gold Lehenga by Manish Malhotra to support the Cancer Patients Aid Association at NSCI, Mumbai. Also spotted during one of the TV shows – Alia Bhatt wearing a Manish Malhotra lehenga with a shirt.

Since this is a very offbeat trend we would not advise you to wear this trend to a formal occasion as the lehenga in itself isn’t a very formal garment. But you can definitely wear this trend to evening parties and social gatherings.

One BB cream is all you need!

Wave goodbye to primers, moisturisers, serums, SPF and foundation and say Hello to the L’oreal Paris True Match Skin Idealizing Beauty Blemish cream! Shop the product here on Voonik : https://goo.gl/KbbfuB

Often choosing between a BB cream and a foundation is a tough choice as one isn’t sure of its benefits. So here’s a quick guide : If you are looking for more coverage that is dense and hides your blemishes for a longer time, we suggest a foundation. But if you are looking for something that is lighter on your skin and also a multi-tasker, then a BB cream is your go-to cream. It hydrates, it’s light on the skin and it’s the best for acne prone skins!

4 things that can make wearing a Saree a Fashion faux pas

sareecoverA saree is an attire that makes you look sexy as well as gorgeous in the most traditional manner. At the same time, it gives you a chance to flaunt your curves like no other outfit. However, there are various things that you need to take care of in order to look your best in this beautiful Indian attire. If not worn properly, the whole essence of dressing up in a saree may get spoiled. Little here or there can turn this elegant drape into a huge disaster.Hence, here are few things that you should avoid when you decide to dazzle in a saree: 

2

Wearing wrong shoesNever wear casual platform heels or wedges with a saree. Also, the flats and slippers should be avoided as they spoil the overall look. However, high heels and stilettos go very well with this gorgeous Indian attire, as they make you look slimmer and taller.  

4

Heavy jewelleryYou need not have an overdose of bling when you wear your favourite saree on any particular occasion. This will surely get you good amount of attention, but certainly not in a right way. Go for delicate jewellery like subtle earrings, thin bracelet, and long sleek chains with small pendants, etc. This will accentuate your looks and also make you look your age, i.e., young!

1

Misfit blousesDo not get tempted to wear sexy and extremely tight blouses, if they do not go well with your body. If you really want to wear such a blouse, make sure you bring your body in the best shape by following a fitness regime. Similarly, loosely fitted blouses also spoil the overall look.

3

Flared petticoatFlared petticoat should be avoided as they will make you look fatter and shapeless. Also, they make the task of managing the saree quite difficult. It is therefore, always a better option to go for plain and fitted petticoat.

Choose exact kurti for your body type that flatters you best. But deciding between different cuts, colors, styles, length and fits can be not easy. Here some guidelines to choose right kurti for pear body shape.

With a wider lower body and a thinner upper body, pear shaped women should select kurtis that draw attention to their shoulders and on the upper part of the body. Most Indian women have such a body type.

Silhouettes

Necklines & Sleeves

As you have narrow shoulders, opt for necklines which will bring attention towards your upper body like, boat neck, halter necks, nehru neck, band collar, cowl neck etc. Choose kurti’s with structured shoulders or structured sleeves like cap sleeves, puff sleeves, leg-o-mutton, ruched, bishop sleeves to balance out your structure.

Prints and Embellishments

Prints and embellishments should be kept minimal towards your lower body. Bold and bright patterns, prints or embellishments should be used at the top upper body like, sleeves, neck, bust and waist. Ombre prints and embroideries are like the perfect choice for your body type, as it complements your body structure perfectly if placed properly.

Colors & Prints Combinations

Pair light color kurti’s with dark color bottoms, as it creates visual balance for your body structure. If you want to experiment with prints then choose bold and bigger prints for your upper body. Opt for camouflaging prints like, abstract prints for your lower body.

5

Fabrics

Opt for fabrics which will fall over  and complements your body structure. Fabrics like rayon, georgette, chiffon, crepe, satin etc are like the perfect for your body type. Avoid stiff fabrics like organza, raw silk and organdi as it will bring attention towards your lower body.

Palazzo pants, salwars, chudhidars or leggings works best for you. Avoid wearing patiyala salwars, tight fitted straight pants or dhoti pants as it will make your lower body look more heavy.
