#Opt for a monochromatic a-line gown to keep it classy. It can be your best bet for a romantic evening.
# Make sure that it fits you well and looks comfortable too.
#Opt for a statement piece like a necklace to accessorize your attire. A watch can look chic too.
#Keep the makeup glamourous with a hint of glitter on the face, soft smoky eyes and glossy lip colour.

Be a #Showstopper!

It is Friday evening and you are wondering what to wear, where to go and what to do… Well, I am in that frame of mind right now and have realized that an outfit can actually set the mood for everything else to follow suit. You can call me a ‘fashion show’ addict as I never miss to check out what’s hot on the ramps across the global runways. They not only are a visual treat but can inspire you to look ‘wow’!

I love to experiment but if I feel a designer’s style suits me, I don’t mind picking up more from her collection. Of late, http://www.latej.com has become my ‘go-to’ option. This pink maxi gown makes me feel like a diva.

#The vintage cut work embroidery around the neck makes it ideal attire for a sophisticated occasion.

#The long cuff sleeves upgrade the style quotient to Victorian glamour. So you can bring on the indo-western look effortlessly.

. #While the elastic waist band makes the fit comfortable, the plunging back transforms it to ‘super sexy’!

#A gorgeous mix of georgette and silk fabrics keep the fashion statement regal and classy.

A WoW evening gown

Here’s what makes it ‘WoW’:

#The blend of fabrics like cotton, satin and Georgette make this ‘diva silhouette’ a perfect amalgamation of structure and fluidity. You can wear this gown to an evening do and look red-carpet -chic instantly.

#The colour scheme complements most complexions as this maxi dress has a rust red bustier teamed up with grayish blue long skirt. The matte gold, sequin embellishments upgrade the royal feel of the attire.

#The curved embroidered yoke, the motif of two fierce lions roaring and the keyhole cut-work will boost your glam quotient effortlessly.

Keep the makeup classy to complement the ensemble. Keep the skin dewy with a hint of your natural glow, define the eyes with a soft, smokey brown eye shadow and opt for a classy red pout to finish this look. Leave the hair open to cascade down naturally over one shoulder and make heads turn.

Looking gorgeous just got easy!!!

To office
Outfit:

You can wear your short evening dress to office if you do not wish to carry change with you. Simply make it look more formal by throwing on a cape, crop jacket or blazer.

Makeup: Minimal works best when at work, so keep it simple with a good base for the skin to look fresh and add a hint of colour to your lips.

Hair: You can try an updo style, bun or even a power pony tail for work.

To party

Outfit: Simply remove the cape, crop jacket or blazer that you donned for the formal feel all day. Less accessories work better, so keep it to chimes, watch and a clutch purse.

Makeup: Upgrade your day makeup look with smoky eyes and glossy pout. You can highlight your cheekbones with a dash of blush and keep it sexy chic.

Hair: Pull down your hair and toss it on one side. Feel Wow as you look back into the mirror and go party!
