Fashion Talk (Part 2)

This is the second post in the series "Fashion Talk". This post is about accessories for women.

The clothes you wear denote who you are and are very important in determining your identity. Every individual has his or her own style of dressing. But no matter what your style is, it is important that you dress according to the occasion or situation.
As Mark Twain said "Clothes maketh the man" (or woman in this case).But only wearing the right clothes will not suffice- they should be combined with the right accessories.
For example: Wearing mismatched or shoddy looking shoes with a traditional clothes is an absolute no no.

That brings us back to the main topic of this post- Accessories.
Accessories can make or break your look, so it becomes essential that you use them with care. Never overdo the accessory part. If used wisely they can definitely enhance your appearance.

List of accessories
  • Stoles: These are stylish substitutes for a traditional dupatta. They can be teamed  with  kurtis and pant or with a skirt and top too. They are available in various designs and materials.
