Make sure you have toned shoulders for the same. Opt for fun colours such as peppy pinks, bright yellows, sunset oranges or whites.

  • Date Nights

Date Nights

Date nights call for some sensuous dressing to sweep the ground of your SO’s feet. A killer indo-western in minimal tones can really pull-off the date night look you have imagined. Go for indo western kurtis in stylish necklines like off-shoulder neck or one-shoulder neck. Make sure you choose outrageous colors and add some lacy detailing to your outfit. Laces are a fool proof way of raising the sex appeal of any outfit provided they’re styled rightly.  If you’re wearing colors like black, burgundy or deep purple, then contrast your look with nude heels and a minimal clutch. On the other hand, if you’re opting for beige or neutral kurtis, then pair them with deep burgundy stilettoes and some bling danglers.
