Style is not to be copy cats but its to carry urself comfortably. Always try to look simple. There is no need to do hard work for looking smart. If u look simple or sober then u will look more beautiful. As we say in India

"Khoobsurati sadgi mein he hai"

(it means simplicity look more beautiful)

Mix n Match

U should know the art of mix n match . When it's a matter of dress n accessories, contrast look s good. Like with actual dress, classic accessories look nice. Otherwise there is no rule for mi9x n match. But in reality which is different from ordinary is a centre of attraction & that's the style.


Ur footwear plays a vital role in making u look attractive. High heels make u look smart . Don't think what other will say. High heel footwear not only make ur posture look good but also this will change ur personality. Generally people think who's gonna see their foot but its not like that. If u r going on shopping for ur footwear try to opt for branded ones. Don't ever try to wear heel more than 4" as it will be uncomfortable for u, it also effects ur posture & u will become a part of fun for others.

Style is Costly

Some people think that style is costly. In reality its not how much u spend on ur looks but how u find alternatives for costly things.

Something Different

  • Like rings made of mixed metal or stones will look more attractive.

  • Try to design any dress with pearls n stone urself at home.

  • Choose a footwear with silver n golden straps.

White is a perfect shade for summers. It gives cool & relaxing appeal. So here r some tips to keep ur white actually white....

*Hot water keeps clothes white. Use the hottest water the fabric can withstand. Give a look at the instructions on the garments.

*Do not wash white clothes with coloured ones.

*Too much detergent can lead to unwanted deposits. So rinse ur clothes properly.

*If u get the supply of hard water, then use an additive to soften the water. An easy way is to add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the water used for the last rinse.

*Do not use chlorine bleach for white fabric as it will discolour ur white n make the fabric weak.

*Try adding 250gms of 3percent hydrogen peroxide to ur wash. This solution is generally available at all pharmacies.

*Add 1/2 cup lemon juice to the rinse cycle of ur washing machine (medium load) or
to the last rinse if hand washing.

*For dirty rings around the collars of a shirt, squirt some shampoo onto the area & rub it in with a nail brush before washing. U can also try rubbing baking soda or white chalk

*Dry pure cotton whites in the sun they will acquire a clean shine.
