Everything that glitters is not Gold !!!!!!

With Winter approaching in full rage, Delhi is feeling the chill and Mumbai, after months of waiting, is starting to feeling the gentle cool breeze. Everyone is set for 2008-2009 Winter.

GLITTER GLITTER EVERYWHERE

Certainly the time has come to take out all those glittery clothes you had been hiding in your closets. We are already seeing them out with the fashion-'firsters'. ITS TIME TO GLITTER AND SHINE.

Take a look... SEQUIN GLAMOUR!!!!

This season's evening wear has to have that glitter and shine (not just with Pantene). One of the best party looks this Autumn and Winter 2008/09 is the all over sequin A-line tunic dress.
In fact you can also carry the look for the day, just make sure you don't overdo it. Many high street stores are using sequin and embellish for even the day wear.

.
How to wear the GLITTER AND SHINE:

- Sequins are perfect for a night out.
.
- Easy to work look: Pick a sequined or embellished shrug and team it with you dress or camisole and black pants. This is the easiest to carry and will work for almost everyone.
.
- An embellished jacket is a great pick and can be a very versatile item. Wear it with an evening dress, or pair with your jeans, to stay warm you can also wear them over your saree or tunics and still look great.
.
- A sequined fitted dress can work for you if you are confident enough to carry it and have a good body. Otherwise you can opt for a sequined tunic and can even team it with leggings or skinny pants.
.
- Sequins in sarees and salwar kameez is Indian wardrobe's staple.
- Accessorize to shine: Just choose some nice glittery accessory to add that sparkle to your look. It can be a sequinned bag, a crystal/diamond studded watch, a sequined belt, a standout brooch, or sequined leggings (strictly for the skinny girls and keep the rest of the look simple with those leggings).
.
- To keep it subtle and sohistiocated, when wearing any sequin clothing keep accessories to a minimum and add a pair of semi-sheer black tights to let the sparkle do the talking.
.
Strictly avoid Sequined Pants. Its best left for the catwalk.

Make sure that the sequined dress, jacket or top you buy is of good quality. A wrong pick can make you look from fab to disastrous.

HOT PICKS:

Wills Lifestyle Stores: WLS has tied up with designers like Anamika Khanna, Rohit Bal, Ashish Soni, Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna. Hot pick from WLS - the jacket below, Anamika Khanna for WLS. You can find it at Wills Lifestyle Store in major cities across India.


GLITTER AND SHINE - from the runway.


You need not just have sequins to add shine. The tunic and skirt from Monisha Jaisingh's Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 collection are a perfect example.

I love the skirt.
The shiny salwar kameez from Pria Kataria Puri's Collection

A piece of accessory can also add glitter to your evening look.

I like the Cristal Watch Collection from Christian Dior, particularly this grey watch. It looks wonderful when tried on wrist.
