It’s the last Monday of the year, so stop feeling the blues. Instead, make the best of it as the countdown to 2015 begins. You can flaunt the shades of blue in your attire may be and go on a shopping spree for the New Year party coming up in two days. Opt for ‘sporty glam’ which is funky, cool and youthful for this season.
Outfit: A Knitted top in a cool shade like mint green can be teamed up with a short skirt. Make sure to have a sporty element on it like – a jersey number or a fun motif that spells ‘casual chic’ loud and clear! The skirt can be a bit more dressy if you like, with tribal embroidery or boho prints.
Accessories: Keep it simple and fun. A watch looks smart so sport it along with subtle earrings. For footwear a pair of canvas, keds or sneakers in a solid colour or with prints, look cute. Ankle-length socks are optional. They are also very comfortable to walk around in and as an incentive, you will be able to shed off a few extra calories in the process.
Make-up: The fresh, dewy look works the best so let your skin breathe with a subtle foundation. You can keep the eye make-up clean for a change with a dash of shimmery eye shadow in a neutral colour like – beige or fawn. A hint of blush in an apricot or peach shade on the apples of your cheek, will add an instant ‘pick-me-up’ effect to the over all look! A tinted lip balm or a nude shade of lipstick with a splash of pink will finish the look quite effortlessly.
Hair: You can opt for a simple, ‘no fuss’ hair day by wearing your hair in a pony tail. In fact you can get a little more playful with ‘back-to-school’, double ponytails that will keep the look young and fresh. It is also the best way to show off your ombre streaks or highlights.
