  DRESS BETTER - by Editor
You don't need to spend a fortune to dress well, but you do need to make careful choices when shopping, so your outfit doesn't go horribly wrong. Read on.


So many of us have nice enough faces and bodies, but when it comes to dressing well, we either just don't bother to take the time out to wear something that looks good and accessorize it well, or we just don't know how to do so.

You don't need to have a lot of money to dress well. With so many malls mushrooming in every corner, you have access to numerous stores and a wide variety of clothing that was not available earlier. Many stores now sell fashionable basic clothing at reasonable rates, and you can get some great bargains at sales. Don't go for everything cheap or everything expensive. Incorporate a good mix of economical and exclusive, expensive items in your wardrobe for a good balance. For example, purchase a few basics from stores such as Westside, and then visit a couple of exclusive stores for some trendier styles.


Colours

Don't wear two loud colours together, unless you're Govinda and are appearing in a David Dhavan slapstick. You could wear a single colour from head to toe, but if the colour is very loud, consider breaking it with the help of a neutral shade. So if you are wearing a red top, instead of pairing it with red trousers, consider opting for beige. The same goes for other colours like emerald green, shocking pink etc.


Venue

Dress according to where you are going. If you are going to the office, be subtle and don't wear anything revealing or sexy. But if you are going to a nightclub, you could definitely go all out. You may still stand out though!


Earrings

Often the only accessories many women wear are a pair of gold, diamond or pearl earrings - which they continue wearing day after day irrespective of their outfit. Consider opting for long earrings with coloured stones to really dress up an outfit. If the stones are the same colour as that of the outfit, they will be a perfect complement. Even a simple outfit can look very dressy with matching, striking earrings.


Shoes

Don't wear black shoes with every dress. Get shoes that match. Delicate sandals score over clogs or platforms every time, especially in the summer. If you cannot afford to have shoes in every single colour, purchase something like white or silver sandals with a white or silver bag. This can then dress up any outfit.


Fabric

Pay attention to fabric. Here in India cotton is so reasonable, there should be no need at all to opt for anything polyester. Stick to cotton and denims for a causal look, and if you cannot afford silk for a more formal outing, dress up your cotton outfit with accessorizing it well instead of opting for polyester.


Hair-free

Make sure your arms and underarms are waxed at all times, and your eyebrows and upperlip are threaded. Hairy underarms or unruly eyebrows can ruin an otherwise perfect look.

Comments:   Ya I agree with tiya.It depends upon person to person .some like bindi/bangles with jeans and some not but it definitely luks gud on some person.It all depends upon wat one is comfortable in. to be modern doesnt means u shud not wear bindi/bangles with modern dress. For an indian especially married girls Bindi/bangles means a lot and is an inevitable part of our indian tradition.

Comments:   Not wearing bindis/bangles is not like we forget our culture...I don't say wearing all that is wrong but we should also concentrate on dressing better...So, we can wear bindis/bangles but only if they go with our dress-up...so your outfit doesn’t go horribly wrong.

Comments:   I personally believe it is up to the individual what they wish to wear. Who is to say, what is right or wrong, as long as the person wearing the outfit, bangles and bindis feels totally comfortable, that is all that should matter. We spend too much energy wondering what others may think and in the end, what should matter is what you yourself think and believe. I believe no individual is the same and that includes there dress sense. Stop judging others in what they wear, We will leave this planet only with our soul, not our accessories

Comments:   I soooooo agree with Rita. I have just moved to US and beleive me I have seen people wearing most outrageous outfit emsembles over here. Bindi/Bangles with jeans is noits tim where near to being as awkward as what I see over here. Dressing is matter of personal choice and I am no one to comment on it. However if anyone out there wants some suggestions- western outfits (casual) can be teamed up with more trendy (and inexpensive too) bangles and bindis. Next time watch such combos more carefully in Bollywood movies. You are sure to get lot of style tips from there. But with business formals these are strictly a no-no. Bangles can be subsituted with Bracelets though but bindis out of question. However, in the end if you are not comfortable with what you are wearing, thats not the outfit for you...cheers!

Comments:   I don´t understand this concept of tweeze your eyebrows and wax your underarms. Its a godgiven thing so why make such a big deal of it. And why shouldn´t this also be applicable to men? They´re hairier than women.

Comments:   Is it bad to shave your armpits, because that is what I do. The hair isnt always completely gone, but i get by. So is it bad to shave armpits and wax eyebrows? I also shave my legs. I just DO NOT like pain. And i know beauty hurts, but who cares. I would be perfectly fine living in a world where peopel grew out their leg and armpit hair so they could braid it. Besides, im only 14 an dmy mom said that she never shaved above her knee and now teh hair had vanished. Is it bad to shave above ones knee? Also two more questions? How should I get rid of hair on my stomac? Bleeching? Shaving? Waxing? And how should one get rid of upper lip hair? Waxing? SHaving? PLEASE HELP!!??!?!??!?

Comments:   Organizing the actual 3 whiff bottles within 1 scoot lock longchamp pliage bag makes it faster in addition to easier. Larger liquids should be declared. Other drinks exceeding this 3ounce Longchamp pliage bag are made possible in specific instances. With this we should make the top options for our eyewear. The summers and the weather itself have gotten hotter in addition to warmer isabel marant soldes. If some of our eyes include the home windows to our soul then our glasses are definitely the how the world will see.
