Team leggings with long shirts

My son is getting married in March. However, my would be daughter-in-law is German, as a result is not used to Indianwear. Since we are Bengalis, I would want to introduce her to Bengali attire. Please help.

I know the sari fixation in Bengali families. You can always hand her down some heirloom saris, but instead of the normal blouse, she can team it with T-shirts, shirts, waistcoats and jackets for a smarter look. The idea is to introduce her to new styles along with certain key elements she can identify with. Heavily-embroidered kurtas can be teamed with denims or leggings. A

r can also be a nice substitute for a sari. And if she is more comfortable in dresses, dresses with sari drapes are also available these days.

I am a dancer. I generally wear leotards for my contemporary dance shows, but I am bored now. Can you suggest something different?

For dance performances, choose clothes that allow easy movement. You can choose layered or wrap dresses with see-through effect. Sheer is ‘in’ now. In such cases, a heavily-embroidered neckline can add a dash of glamour. Long lengths can add drama to your outfit. Drape dresses in lighter fabrics and interesting dye patterns or subtle prints and embroideries will also highlight your dress.

I am 18-years-old. I love to wear leggings but my hips are on the heavier side which makes my cellulite visible. What kind of tops should I wear?

It’s true that leggings are very comfortable for regular movement. Team mid-length shirts with leggings to hide the flab. A-line dresses in jewel tones can also be a good option. Wear it with statement jewellery. Try and wear long tops that will cover your hips.

We have decided to throw a small party for my son’s birthday. I want to change the look of my home, but I am on a tight budget. Please advice.

Well, it’s nice that fashion has slowly crept into people’s lives as well. Changing the curtains and cushions will definitely give your home a different look. You can go for printed, embroidered or woven cushion covers. Choose colours that contrast with the background. It’s important to decide on the colour code for a maximum effect.
