Shraddha Kapoor and Athiya Shetty show us how to wear metallic without going overboard

Metallics first began to make itself felt in Milan when Missoni showcased his metallic and layered knit looks at Milan Fashion Week in 2016, but it picked up the pace when Dries Van Noten during his 100th show in Paris in March this year showed the world designs of beautiful metallic tailoring. Ever since the trend has caught on big with celebrities and that includes our Bollywood beauties as well. From Deepika Padukone to Alia Bhatt, almost everyone has tried it and the latest ones to nail metallics are Shraddha Kapoor and Athiya Shetty.

The actress who was seen at an event rocked colourful holographic separates from Nor Black Nor White. The Ok Jaanu actress who picked up the statement-making pieces from their latest collection styled the bomber jacket and the pleated skirt well with a grey T-shirt.

Her accessory game was strong too with a pair of powder blue Christian Louboutin heels and earrings from Valliyan. The look was absolutely spot on and we aren’t surprised since it was curated by celebrity stylist Shaleena Nathani. She has in the past put up stellar looks for Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma in metallics. Even celebrity hairstylist Franco Vallelonga did a good job with voluminous curls and celebrity make-up artist Shraddha Naik complemented it with a dewy-faced make-up and a pink pout. We love this look!

Athiya Shetty, on the other hand, was seen promoting her upcoming film Mubarakan in a mix and match look. We like how celebrity stylist Ami Patel paired the white embroidered shirt with a signature metallic skirt by Amit Aggarwal and added some drama with the lovely metallic belt.

A pair of golden heels, berry lips and straight hair rounded out her look. We like what we see, especially the skirt made from Patola sari.

We think both of them did well. Whose look do you prefer?Read more at:cocktail dresses | formal dresses

7 ways to drape your sari and stand out from the crowd

The sari is one of the most versatile garments. They can be formal, sexy, fun, and traditional. But wearing them in one style can make the most interesting and expensive look a tad boring. How about giving this six yard wonder a different draping every time you step out? Fashion designer Naina Jain and celebrity sari draper Dolly Jain give you alternate ways to drape your sari.

1) Sari as a gown: This style is comfortable yet chic. It gives a classy look that is a perfect choice for a cocktail outfit. Sari gowns are for those who don’t want to tuck in and drape saris the traditional way. Even if you step over the pleats and tucks, the sari-cum-gown stays in place.

2) Sari over pants: To look more trendy, you can opt for the pant style sari. For this, you would need a pair of jeggings or leggings, crop top or choli and heels. Just start by pleating one end of the sari as you would want to drape it, pinning it up and tucking it into your pants at the centre and then the other end can be draped as a chunni across the shoulders in various ways.

3) Sari over lehenga: Like a traditional sari, one can wear lehenga style sari over a skirt along with a beautifully designed blouse. This look is achieved with the help of several pleats tucked around the waist giving an illusion of a lehenga. This is an outfit for ladies who are not comfortable with usual draping and pleating that the regular sari demands.

4) Two saris worn together like a lehenga: This is a unique type of draping two saris like a lehenga. This style includes draping two saris together in a seamless way. Double saris make the look trendier and it’s a great alternative for traditional single sari drape. So, wear them like a lehenga and stand out in the crowd!

5) Mermaid style: This style is suitable for almost all body types, especially for the ones with a curvaceous figure. This kind of drape gives a slimmer look to the wearer. The lower portion of the sari is draped in such a way that it looks like a skirt and there are no pleats made in front. Pick a sari with a heavy pallu or embellished border for the mermaid style look.

6) Butterfly style: Butterfly style is also known as the Bollywood style of wearing a sari. In this style, the pallu is very thin, so that the midriff or navel is visible. When thinking of wearing a sari in this particular style, go for materials like chiffon and net.

7) Sari in Paithani style: It’s also known as the sari style of Maharashtra. Paithani style is different from other traditional draping preferred by Indian women. The sari is also longer and no petticoat is required. Pair this look with a nose ring and some jasmine flowers for your hair!Read more at:cocktail dresses uk | marieprom

Keep these dos and don’ts in mind when using essential oils

There are many benefits of using essential oils. They are great for your skin, enhance your mood and improve concentration. However, use them right, say experts. Here’s how:

Dos

* Essential oils can be sensitising. It is necessary to conduct a patch test before purchasing them and making sure the oil you buy suits your skin type. Some of these oils cause severe skin sensitising and sun sensitivity. So if you have a sensitive skin, it’s always advisable to check with a qualified practitioner first.

* Make sure that the product is 100% pure and natural. Non-organic brands may add fillers which often include harmful chemicals and this may harm you in the long run.

* Dilute essential oils prior to application. Essential oils can be blended with base oils or carrier oils before applying to your skin. They are highly concentrated and should never be used undiluted on the skin. They need to be mixed with carrier/base oil. The ratio should be 3-4 drops of essential oil in 10 ml of base oil. Some oils like olive, almond, jojoba, grape seed and coconut oil can be used as carrier oil.

* Always store essential oils in a cool dark place. Essentials oils should be stored in a cool dark place and out of direct sunlight. It is simply to help preserve their potency. Essential oils have a very long shelf life, some even last for years without losing their potency, if stored correctly.

Don’ts

* Do not ingest the oil. Though there are many people who use essential oils by ingesting them, this should not be done without consulting a doctor.

* Avoid using essential oils while pregnant or nursing. Every essential oil serves a particular purpose, so it is advisable to consult your dermatologist before buying, especially for pregnant women.

Cinnamon, clove, ginger, jasmine, sage, chamomile are some of the more common essential oils that should not be used by pregnant women.

* Do not apply essential oils to mucous membranes. Never use essential oils near the eyes or put directly into ears. Some oils may damage your contact lenses, so never touch lenses immediately after using essential oils. These oils are potent and can cause severe irritation to your eyes.

* In case you have sensitive skin, and have a history with irritability or rashes then start by applying these oils discreetly. Massage the oil into a small patch of skin. Wait 24 hours to see if the area has any itchiness or irritation. This will help you safeguard your skin just in case the oil does not suit your skin type.Read more at:prom dresses | http://www.marieprom.co.uk/cheap-prom-dresses-uk
