WOMEN'S FASHION

Women's fashion, today, has burgeoned beyond kurtis and tops. . India still lags behind in terms of fashion, but places like Paris, America etc. are a storehouse of women's fashion. Their superior fashion prowess is the end result of experimentation. People are free to experiment with bizarre clothing combinations

India lags in terms of fashion for two reasons - firstly, people here have conservative mentality and hence parents don't want their daughters to wear dresses and off-shoulder tops in public. Secondly, Indians staunchly believe that everything looks good on skinny and fair girls whereas fat and dark complexioned girls are a bane in our society. This orthodox mindset is very much apparent when you hear people saying "Sharma ji's daughter is so white. Any man will ideally fall for her." despite the fact that Sharma ji's daughter has slant eyes, a big fat nose, a smile like a dracula and a pathetic fashion sense.

Coming back to Indian fashion, I think girls with a sun-kissed skin are incredibly sexy. They are more appealing than girls with snow white complexion. Skinny girls are a big turn off. Women with perfect curves can easily carry any attire like a boss. We can take examples from Bollywood itself. Sunny Leone looks more classy than Shraddha Kapoor. Kareena Kapoor looks way better than skinny Katrina Kaif. In fact, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks way more graceful after pregnancy. Back in 2004, she was as skinny as Cheryl Cole but now, it seems she is getting prettier day by day. Genelia D' Souza has a beautiful maternity glow.

When we talk about fat women, its true that they don't have many options but they have some classy options in the world of fashion. Kaftan tops, ponchos, long skirts, maxi dresses etc. have been specially designed for people like them. Dolly Bindra would not have become a celebrity if she didn't have requisite clothing options. Super sized celebrities would not have still been celebrities had they not hired personal stylists. These stylists know what would suit their huge bodies. Take an example of Kirron Kher. The lady knows what a good saree looks like. Her collection of sarees is drool worthy. Despite gaining pounds after pregnancy, Lara Dutta still knows how to carry herself well. Her stylist ensures that she wear clothes that suit her body type. Celebrities like Sonakshi Sinha (who have a lot of baby fat) know well how to rock a pair of jeans and top!

For plus size women, a plain black maxi dress is ideal. It can be paired with beautiful golden and silver colored accessories and a pastel handbag. They can also a pair maxi skirt with a top. Plus size women must avoid crop tops as they can make their torso look heavier. Another fancy option for fat women is a poncho. Ponchos can be easily paired with jeans and a fringe hand bag for a classy look. Kaftan tops are ideal for casual dressing. A straight kurti is also considered ideal for women with extra pounds. A flare kurti with palazzos is an ideal dressy combination for plus size ladies. Women with extra pounds must avoid wearing anarkali kurtas as they can make them look bulkier.

Fashion is all about knowing what suits one's body shape and type. If ladies can manage to unravel this mystery, they will definitely be fashion divas.
