If a person wants to look slim without having to go on a dieting spree than wearing an over sized crop top over a palazzo, or a skirt will skilfully hide extra ounces of our body. It will give an airy feel and look. It will not just make you look slimmer and fabulous but is also comfortable.
Wearing prints needs skill. Right kind of prints and stripes are great in masking the weight of the body. A printed top matched with another printed shorts or short skirt is the safest bet to look slimmer.
A top which is fitted on the top and swingy on the bottom help vanishing extra weight on our belly and waistline. It could also be termed a balloon top and could be worn with a jeans or formal bottoms. It is best suited as a casual wear.

A midi-length skirt teamed up with a loose shirt is a good way to make a statement. Geometric patterns on the skirt, bright colours add beauty to it and also hide weight.
To hide that extra ounces on your hands that makes them look muscular, a person can option for elbow length tops that are tailored to make arms look slim. But during summers if you want to go for sleeve less then design it craftily. Instead of sleeve less opt for kaftan sleeves which have extra cloth looking like a sleeve and hiding your arm muscles but are very airy and the material does not stick to your hand like a proper sleeve.    
Another trick to be hailed as a saviour for hiding our weight and making us look slim is the technique of colour blocking. In such a technique the dark colours like black are used in making that part of the dress that falls on waistline or upper arm muscle or on chest and the rest of the dress are made in soft colours. This is not just classy but beautiful. A smart way to hide the area that often make us look embarrassing and at the same time makes up for a beautiful, eye pleasing dress.

Not happening Mom, I won’t throw any of my stuff whether I wear it or not.”

I am sure every girl can relate with above conversation because I surely do. Be it a 13 year or a 25 year old, we, girls, are really possessive about our clothes. However some of the things are absolutely requisite in our wardrobe.

Beginning with Chambray shirts and plaid up button, these can be wrapped around your waist or can be casually worn as jacket and shirt and they go with jeans, slacks or skirts.

Another necessity is the denims (light or dark), they can be easily dressed up or dressed down. A white crisp shirt in your closet can be layered under sweater or dress and are thumbs up professional as well as a go out look.

Take care of your skin with these simple tips on Holi

Holi tips

As the festival of colors peeks at us from just around the corner, the preparations for it start with a big bang. Right from invites to dresses, everything is to be prepared for. In times like these tips can be heard from all around- “don’t forget to apply coconut oil”, “use only herbal colors”, “cut long nails and wear dark nail paint”.  But still no amount of tips can ensure the safety of your skin. And yet we try. Here are some of the uncommon tips to take care of your skin this Holi

Holi tips

Cover your body with clothes as much as possible. This is as to prevent the seeping in of the toxins too quick. Full sleeved thick Kurtis and leggings work best as an outfit. Make sure it looks good though.

Holi tips

  • Lemon is a natural bleaching agent. Using Lemon to scrub yourself in your post Holi rituals may result in a color-free skin the next day.

Holi tips

  • Chemicals + Water + Sun = So much tan. Apply a layer of sunscreen over your coat of moisturizer to prevent the body from tanning or absorbing toxins.

Holi tips

  • Multani Mitti is popular as an absorbent as well as getting rid of dead skin and giving your pores space to breath. Thus it makes a perfect face pack for the post Holi relaxing time.

Holi tips

  • Another lovely alternative as a face mask is a paste you can prepare at home by mixing curd, sandalwood, turmeric and white flour. It is sure to freshen your skin the right way.

Holi tips

  • Do NOT use hot water for the shower after your Holi rituals. Hot water is capable of demoisturizing your skin and making it dry and lifeless. Now we wouldn’t want that, would we?

Holi tip

 

  • In case of worst case scenario, if the color is absolutely stubborn, one can dab a little bit of kerosene oil on the color to bleach it out. Although too much of it may make your skin dry.

Holi tips

 

  • Beware of itches. As soon as you get an itch, it is recommended to rinse the affected area. If it persists, call a doctor. An itch is a way for your body to tell you that the toxins are active in the particular area and that you should do something about it right away.

Holi tips

  • With color dust being everywhere, it is very difficult for it to be prevented from entering your eyes. Hence after cleansing the rest of your body, be sure to use rosewater as natural eye drops to relax the eyes.

Holi tips

  • We cannot stress that enough, and neither can anyone else. Moisturize before getting out of your house. Moisturize after exiting your shower. And keep moisturizing every time your skin starts to feel dry.

Holi tips

  • A quick bleach pack would also help you to remove some stubborn color.

A very happy and colorful Holi to you!!
