Shimmer time

The hottest party trends at the moment, are fringes and shimmer. Shimmer is glamorous and brings out the diva in you. A long gold lame maxi dress is sure to make you feel like a showstopper in a fashion show. Tall women look best in a maxi. If you are petite, the best type of dress is a short one that reaches just above your knees. Accessorize it with a gold belt and voila, you have upped your style quotient. Wear a pair of glittering gold stilettos. If you like to play it safe but be fashionable, carry a glittering metallic evening bag. You can also wear a chiffon sari paired with a sequinned blouse. The blouse lends instant character to the otherwise plain sari.

Now lets talk about the fringe. The easiest way to own the fringe look is to flaunt it with accessories. A sling bag with fringe detail is “in”. And it’s the easiest way to stay trendy. The brands that I really like are Zara and Rebecca Minkoff.

Or, wear a pair of fringe gold coloured earrings with your little black dress. You could wear the earrings even with a Kanchipuram sari. A mix of the traditional and contemporary will most definitely make people stop and take note. If you'd like to be a tad bit bolder, experiment with fringe detailed shoes. Schutz and Chloe are well known luxury brands for their fringed stilettos. Its okay once in a while to splurge on shoes. A word of caution, these stilettos are definitely not for the faint hearted.

My favourite way to flaunt the fringe look, is to wear a leather jacket with fringe trimmings over a pair of blue denims and boots. It keeps me comfortable and stylish at the same time.

People say that in order to keep up with fashion trends one has to sacrifice comfort. I disagree! Its picking what works for you and your body type that makes you truly stylish.
