Here are some essentials that will turn life-savers for you. From formal occasions and day outs to parties and evening get-togethers, these will help you put together a chic look in no time.
*A string of pearls can be teamed up with almost anything (excluding casuals) to give your ensemble a very classic and chic look. Looks great when worn with chiffon, georgette and crepe saris, or even an evening gown, a little black cocktail dress, or a silk blouse.
*A medium-sized handbag in black or tan. Keep the design simple and classic.
*Delicate black stilettos or court shoes with 3-5 inch heels, to add that glamorous finish to any formal or semi-formal ensemble. You should only wear them when it’s essential; it’s not a good idea to wear high heels daily.
*A white shirt blouse is an absolute fashion essential, for it can be teamed with tailored pants or skirts for a formal look. It also looks great when worn with basic blue jeans.
*Black or dark coloured tailored pants, preferably in woven fabric with a small percentage of lycra in it. The lycra gives the pants a better fit and also increases the life of the garment. These pants are complete lifesavers, for you can wear them to work and just combine with accessories for an evening out.
*A solid colour chiffon or georgette sari is great for any semi-formal or formal occasion. It can be worn both during the day and in the evening. Wear a lycra knit blouse with it to give the ensemble a more individualistic look with real or even costume jewellery.
*A strapless bra to wear under camisoles, transparent garments, or evening wear and halter necks.
*A G-string is a small yet most essential piece of lingerie. It is not only erotic, but also solves the major problem of underwear seams showing when you wear tight fitted garments. The G-strings give a seam-free clean look to whatever you wear.
*The length of an evening dress can vary according to your choice, but keeping it very short isn’t a great idea (that looks good only on 16-year-olds). Knee-length, three-quarter length and full length gowns are a good choice. Wear simple classic jewellery like solitaires (even the fake ones look great) or pearl earrings to look divine.
*A simple classic watch with a thin leather strap and a delicate square or rectangular dial. It need not be very expensive.
