Buying tips for women

Want to look bold and beautiful, gracious and smart? According to the varying shape and size or body shape and colours, here are few wrapping and carrying tips for Women.

Few of the factors that define your fashion statement are body frame, skin tone, level of comfort and personal attitude.

Body frame:
If you are on the plumper side, try avoiding sleeveless cuts. Choose dark colour clothing rather than lighter shades. You could also try a range of dull colours like dull blue or dirty blue. If you wear small prints and vertical line prints, you will look slimmer. Avoid kota sarees and cotton sarees, stick to Chiffon and Georgette Sarees instead. Choose beige and fawn colours, if you have a medium structure. In case of blouses, try on nets as these are of great help in disguising physical flaws.

For the thinner women, most colours would do alright on you. You can also try sleeveless, deep cuts and strapped blouses.

Skin tone:
If you have fair complexion, gold with a blend of copper will make you cool. If you are a medium / wheatish complexion, prefer mix shades of white, beige and bronzy golden. If you have dark skin, prefer to wrap yourself in golden copper shades.

Personal attitude and level of comfort:
Your attitude and level of comfort is very important along with your appearance and clothing sense. If you want to maintain a cosmopolitan outlook but do not feel very comfortable wearing western wear, try Indo

Western style. A boat necked saree with a squared necked blouse is definitely for a shy and introvert women. If you think you are bold and beautiful, try sleeveless, deep-necked blouses and may be straps.

Buying tips for men

Here are some clothing style tips for men that will provide guidelines on how to shop for clothes that suit your body type.

Short waist
Avoid wearing trousers / jeans at waist. Low waist jeans are not the right type for you. Tucking your top would not be a very good option. Pullovers are apt for your personality. Short lengthy tank tops are a total ‘no’ because they tend to highlight your short waist. Contrast concept wont look very good as it would interfere with the vertical flow. Ask your tailor to keep an inch higher on waist while taking measurement.

Long waist
Low waist jeans with a contrasting shade T-shirt tucked inside would be great. Double breast jacket is just ideal for you so as to prevent people's eyes from falling particularly on your legs. Opt for belts with a big buckle.

For men with flat butts, firstly make sure that you wear proper fit pants. Straight leg trousers are just perfect for you because they divert the attention from back and camouflage your body feature. For men with big butts, it's important to wear proper undergarments, which includes biking shorts & boxer briefs as they tightly hold your body. Attire low waist pleated flat front trousers, as they would go well with your personality.

If you have a large belly, your wardrobe should have a combination of light fabric and dark colour. Light shades tend to accentuate your big belly. You should make it a point to wear a vest as it prevents loose skin flow. Long sleeve T-shirt is the right kind for you. Avoid low waist jeans.

Ethnic Dressing
Shorter and plumper men should wear knee long kurtas. Tall guys can opt for calf length kurta also.

Care & Maintenance

Silk sarees must be handled with care. Silk sarees may get yellow and fade with the use of a high iron setting. Silk saree is also weakened by sunlight and perspiration. Dry cleaning is recommended.

Cottons are comfortable wear. The easy-to-breathe fabric and soft texture make it the most preferred material in this largely tropical country, whether formal or casual wear. Maintenance of cotton wear is also relatively easy. It can be hand-washed, machine-washed or dry-cleaned. Starching cotton clothes would be a good idea for the crisp-cotton look.

Woollens are essential only on those chill winter days. It is recommended that when unused the woollens be neatly wrapped in an airtight bag and kept tucked away from moisture and pests.
