The key to looking great through the work week and on weekends is to pick your wardrobe with care.

Tip: pick high waisted skirts with narrow waistbands to ensure no excess bulk is added on to your waist. Biases cut skirts, cut like this, look better because they drape your curves and don’t cling to any bumps.

Tip: Lycra blended fabric for the trousers ensures the seamless fit. Small elastic inserts on the waist in the back make the fit more comfortable & smooth.

Tip: Floral are a big trend this season, so look for small fine prints in monochromatic color schemes.

Tip: Choose a fabulous dress with 3/4th sleeves can be dressed up or dressed down, making it perfect to take from day to
 night. Team it with pumps and change your accessories to make the look travel.

Tip: Go for dark washed straight cut jeans with a colorful top and accessories. This lovely cotton top has a summery print.

Tip: The printed ruffled high waist dress. And a sheer slinky fabric team with metallic accessories will make for a great fun.

Tip: Kimono sleeves with an empire line style. A printed silk dress is perfect for a Sunday brunch.
