Welcome to spring! With the temperatures rising, it’s but natural to let the colour of the season show–and that colour is skin! Our guest stylist Anamika has these invaluable pointers for you as you step out in your bare and beautiful avatar:
Find the cut that flatters your body type. If you’re slim and trim bodied, you can carry off the smallest shorts and the skinniest tops, curvier women need to be a bit more careful. Choose deep, wide necklines and sleeve designs that enhance your curves, and shorts and skirts that fall at a mid-thigh or knee level. Full skirts and shirts in a soft and sheer fabric look feminine while affording cover, consider chiffon or thin cambric prints, but with emphasis on shape at the waist to define and accentuate your body.
Wear precious and semi precious stones directly on your skin for maximum impact, consider turquoise for that Aztec charm or lapiz lazuli for that touch of the east. Whites teamed with shell or coral neckpieces make a lovely statement while being totally soothing to the eye and skin. Keep jewelry light and minimal, specially during the day.
Make sure that your skin’s well nourished and toned for maximum impact, nothing looks as beautiful as a glow from within. Use a pack of fuller’s earth and chandan powder once a week over all exposed areas, and those five minutes of pampering will see you shine!
Keep that smile and celebrate your inner diva, you know you’re up for it!
