Don’t repeat this next summer!

The Capital’s party scene was rife with fashion blunders this summer. Here’s hoping they don’t make a comeback next year.

The Capital’s party scene was rife with fashion blunders this summer. Here’s hoping they don’t make a comeback next year.

Dull floral prints
Yes, we know every designer worth his/her subscription of fashion glossies starts to churn out floral prints in summer, but they’re just oh-so boring now. If you want to go print crazy next summer, stick to animal prints, geometric prints, psychedelic fluorescent prints and the likes. If you must do flowers then surely don’t go for an overall print. Gotta let go of the 80s one day, after all.

Tight-fit dresses
A combination of the sweltering Delhi heat with a dress that clings, hardly sounds appealing. So, why subject yourself to such obvious discomfort? Plus if you’ve not shed those winter kilos, then all such clothes glorify your curves and result in awkward pictures. Let’s promise to keep it easy, breezy and simple next summer. Fit should always be the master of your wardrobe.

Too much make-up
So, yes the Delhi party scene is all about shining bright but don’t let this shine just be because of tons of bronzer or glitter that you’ve put on. Your make-up shopping list for summer should be packed with these simple items — lip gloss (preferably nude or matt finish one), a water based foundation, a coloured mascara and bright shades of nail enamel.

Plunging necklines on men
The rules, when it comes to the hotly debated man cleavage display, are simple — it’s a strict no, unless you’re starring in a Bollywood flick. Any T-shirt where the neckline is heading towards your navel or a shirt with more than two buttons open, can hardly be defined as appealing for anyone. Even if you’ve been hitting the gym hard, let’s leave something to the imagination. If you do want to show-off those pecs, then stick to a well fitted T-shirt.

Dresses that are far too short
Everyone goes short in summer but short isn’t always sweet. Unless you have gams which can give the likes of Deepika Padukone a run for her money, stay away from dresses which end any higher than the mid thigh. There are far easier ways to beat the summer blues than an upskirt moment. Besides, you don’t want to be responsible for such a conversation topic in the party circuit. After all, word and nowadays even pictures, travel quite fast.
