Actor Soha Ali Khan and stylist Aki Narula are out to provide some style salvation.

How would you define style? Is it what rules the ramp or is it what’s tucked away in your closet? For actor Soha Ali Khan, it is “understanding cut, balance, fit, and fabric,” while for stylist Aki Narula, it’s all about taking risks.

The two gave us their take on the fashion needs of the hour while they were in Delhi to launch the soon to be aired Indian version of reality show, What Not To Wear, which will be shown on TLC.

Soha says
Two things that should never be teamed
Length should be balanced. Short bottoms should not be paired with a short top, and vice-versa.
Don’t crowd your look. Teaming embroidered garments together will make your look jarring.

Fashion trends that are ridiculous
I never understood PVC trousers. Also, staggeringly high heels are not my cup of tea.
Platform sneakers, bell bottoms, over-sized jackets and high-waisted pleated pants.

Sartorial habits that indian women need to trash
Mismatched cotton tights with ill-fitting kurtas. Women need to stop hiding behind their clothes.
Most women wear the wrong bra size. If you want to push up, minimise or accentuate, choose wisely.

Basic tote essentials for a working woman
When I am working, I make sure I carry my mascara. My lip liner is also a must.
Carry heels, a blush on and accessories to work. They can make you party ready in a few minutes.
