eauty and boldness need no introduction. When both are coupled by each other, the degree of hotness rises. And why should we ignore confidence? A mere sight of a bold and beautiful girl makes a guy realize that she definitely has an essence of confidence in her, for she walks tall with pride and poise. This is a really a huge gift! Such girls in a guy's mind are at the upper end of the spectrum. Their boldness appear naturally beautiful and they don't need to put that much effort into their appearance when they go out. They are the envy of most other girls, as they effortlessly attract the attention of most guys. Any guy will be over the moon with himself if he bags a bold and beautiful girl. - Chetan

DIFFERENTLY DAPPER With menswear becoming a lot more eclectic with longer cuts, antifits and irregular draping, you can ditch that dated pair of kurta pajama altogether. Wear a pair of flared pants and a short kurta made of organic Indian fabrics. Long scarves are definitely worth investing in as they add an unexpected detail to your outfit, giving it a laid-back vibe. These pencil-thin scarves come in versatile colors and thinner fabrics. How you drape it around your neck is what truly makes a difference. For Navratri, you can pick a scarf in a washed-out pattern or Indian prints. But what you need the most for the look is a lot of confidence and attitude.

CUT IS KING If you're a minimalist who hates flashy clothes, but wants to opt for the primary Navratri ensemble of kurta-pajama, you must focus on three things -clean lines, neutral colors and structural shapes. Don't make the mistake of picking up a runon-the-mill kurta-pajama and off-the-rack accessories. Put effort into customizing the look for yourself. Understand your shape and physique before deciding on your cuts. The `slant' kurta cut is in and looks truly stylish. Also, do not com promise on the fit.

CHIC DESI TWIST For a modern take on the very predictable Indian men swear, play around with shorter versions of the Pathani kurta. For a more comprehensive look, opt for embroidered bundis and jackets. If you're willing to put some thought and money in to your outfit, elaborate quilting, textures, rich knots, thread work and French Knots will help add some detailing. Ditch the usual red, green and blue, and pick rich shades like wine and tan. Complete with a stunning yet comfortable pair of shoes that would support you through the evening without giving you any pain.



In my childhood time, I used to associate Diwali with brilliant lights, fire crackers, sweets and the like. Now that I am all grown up, I still look forward to Diwali because of the brilliant lights, fire crackers and sweets, but I have yet another thing to love about it – the clothes. Diwali is the best time of the year to show off your new clothes – after all, it is the only festival where you visit all your relatives, or they visit you, thus giving you a perfect opportunity to put on a little fashion show, if you are so inclined. More like the new-age remakes of fairytales and Hollywood classics, the story of festive Indian wear is undergo a rephrase. For the young and daring, the sky is the limit when it comes to expressing their uniqueness. Take brainwave from our Indian designers who offer a range of choices in prints, silhouettes, embellishments and colors. The economic liberalization of India in the '90s had a curious by-product in Indian fashion. Come festival time, you couldn't get away from heavilyembellished ensembles. Even veteran designers had to give in to clients' demands of outrageous clothes that flaunted the affluence of crystals, diamonds and gemstones. But the well-travelled, globally aware woman of today understands that less is more. So, bling is giving way to minimal embellishments, metallic applique, and delicate vintage embroidery. Parsi embroidery is making a comeback, largely due to its use of animal and nature-inspired motifs. Look for chikankari, Kashmiri embroidery, sequined embroidery and katha work while shopping. Designers are also finding new ways to transport pearls and kundan from jewelry to clothes. People are bored with chiffons and georgettes. They want fabrics that have more essence and Indianness. Young and old revivalists are going back to the roots with traditional textiles indigenous to our heritage. What if you could have the best of both worlds — the East and the West — this Diwali? All you need is a great tailor, a little imagination and some inspiration from your favorite designers, who are moulding silhouettes and using unconventional cuts for this purpose. Designers also loves playing with brilliant hues and quirky prints to lend festival fare a youthful pop art appeal. For instance, Designer Siddhant & Shruti fused the pant with a sari drape to create a slimming shape. A very simple and elegant dark color gown with some golden accessory. They

are so comfortable to wear and looks very classy. According to Designer Asif Merchant you can achieve great looks by using prints n experimenting with cut n fabric. Though it's a traditional festival people don't mind a bit of modern twist to the Indian look. As for women ankle length kurta with palazzos will b favorite with soft flowing fabric. As per color though festive season n season of colors we all are playing with lots of English color n experimenting with that. Men would be more trendy n bold with prints n color. Traditional kurta will be replaced with drape kurta n churidhar n salwar will be replaced by drape pants n palazzos. Flower power is going to be in this Diwali season as more n more men opt for flower n bold print for shirt jackets n kurtas etc.” Designer Vishal Kapoor Says “Diwali is all about tradition & colors, ethnic touch with western cuts creating a fusion looks are in vogue. chic short corsets teamed with floor length skirts, bling stones ensembled saris with petit blouse, long layered Anarkalis are what some one likes to grab.... fabrics like sateen georgette, chantilly lace, silk jaquarde & chiffons are perfect for this festive season.” Diwali is not only one day, its being celebrated through a week almost as Dhan Teras, Roop Chaudas / Choti Diwali, Diwali, New year day and Bhai Duj. So, according to these days you require different dressing too. While talks Designer Gagan Kumar gave some nice tips, which can be helpful for you – Try Indian heritage print full dress with little styling in fusion style. You can also try Palazzo pants with Geometrical cut kurtis, Bright color Anarkalis. For Diwali & New year day you must use our traditional look with any graceful sari or Lehnga with broked blouse. I am sure, using these tips you will be having a unique look. Wish you a very Happy Diwali & Prosperous new year. - Mehul Suthar
