Draped cholis, puffed sleeves and covered arms made quite the gorgeous appearance on the runway this catwalk season. Neeta Lulla makes full sleeves exciting with bustling lace, designer, Debarun Mukherjee, delights with a cream and gold dupatta smartly covering your arms and Parvesh Jai and Payal Kapoor lengthen the lines of your body while keeping your outfit straight, simple and covered in a lovely red and gold churidhaar. Mix, match and blend these trends to feel beautiful even if you're not comfortable with your arms!
An Indian woman's most common problem area is her hips. It's no wonder that the country's choicest designers cut and layer yards of luxurious fabric to ensure that you don't have to worry about looking pear-like in any shape or form. Suneet Varma's embellished anarkalis with high empire waists create volume and drama in the most flattering manner possible. Add that extra oomph and stand out in the most breathtaking manner possible in Meera & Muzaffar Ali's long kurtas and A-line lehengas.
Baring a strip of flesh in a lehenga may not be for everyone. For those of you who want to look beautiful without showing any tummy, lehengas paired with long tops is the way to go. Go with full silhouettes that skim your body and create both, line and length, without defining your waist. Manish Malhotra's longer kurtis with flared skirts and deep necklines shift the focus away from the problem areas, giving you the illusion of a slimmer and trimmer look.
