Embrace the waterproof make-up: We know how it feels when the makeup refuses to stay on the skin and gets washed out either in the humidity or the downpour. But yes, you can look your best with few simple makeup tricks, even during the messy season. Restrict your make-up to the minimum and use waterproof products.

Take good care of skin: Don’t forget that monsoons demand a little extra care for your skin, as there is already a lot of moisture in the air that can make your skin rough and dull. Use skin packs to keep your skin breathing.

Hair care: Go for an uncomplicated hairstyle, which doesn’t require regular maintenance. It’s best to keep a messy, wavy hairstyle, as the rain will only add up to the style. Washing your hair daily with a good mild shampoo is advisable so that your scalp remains clean all the time.

Plus size fashion: Reality V/s Myths!

Exploding fashion myths for plus size women is long overdue. For years, full-figured women have lived with the same rules, avoiding many of the styles they really want to wear. They are fearful that something will make them look larger, broader or heavier. Too often, plus size women dress much as our mothers and grandmothers did, choosing black over bright colors, long skirts over short ones, and spending day after day at home in shapeless house dresses. It’s a new season, ladies, and time to explode these myths!

MYTH 1#

Plus size women should never wear horizontal stripes.

REALITY 

In case you haven’t looked lately, horizontal stripes are everywhere. They’re showing up in dresses, blouses, sweaters and ponchos. Stripes are big on the fashion scene and horizontal, vertical and diagonal striped are almost equally popular.The best way to wear horizontal stripes is to break up the pattern with a blazer or colored pants.

MYTH 2#

Black is the only flattering color for fuller figures.

REALITY 

Black is not the only choice for plus women. Black slacks and pants can pair with brilliant blouses and sweaters for amazingly flattering looks. Black jeans, jeggings and leggings can be worn with a spectrum of plaids, paisleys, prints and patterns by women of all sizes. Black dresses are an integral part of nearly every woman’s wardrobe and are flattering to all sizes. Wearing black is fine, but limiting yourself to black is discouraging. On the other hand fact is  all the solid, bold hues are equally slimming.

MYTH 3#

Peplums add volume.

REALITY 

A streamlined pencil skirt with a peplum creates an hourglass shape. The beauty of a peplum is that it creates the illusion of a waist for those who might not have much definition in that area, and for those who do have a waist it’s one of those styles that accentuates the waist and forgives the muffin tops / tummy area. The hem of the peplum should hit just above the fullest part of the hip for optimal visual impact.  The eye will follow the hip curve as it bends towards the waist and disappears into the peplum.  Regardless of tummy or muffin bulge (which disappears under the peplum anyway), this is the most pleasing hem placement for that reason.

MYTH 4#

Patterned pants draw attention to a heavy bottom.

REALITY 

Black is slimming but gets boring! If the cut of the garment flatters your figure, you can wear just about anything you like including prints. When wearing patterns, opt for ones in a larger scale which camouflage lumps and bumps. For the ultimate slimming effect, look for patterns with darker backgrounds.
