Crop It

The cropped jacket has been around for a while now. And this year I'm totally inspired to incorporate this stylish eye catcher to one Indian ensemble atleast. Last year Lakme Fashion Week photos saw the cropped jacket a lot, and this year too it scored a place on the ramp. Ideal for women who are heavier on the bottom, they add curves just at the right place. But remember fashion has no rules and no bounds. Do not limit yourself to fashion blogs and market trends. Experiment with yourself and see what works out best for you. You might get it wrong the first three times, but you sure will get it right one day. Here are a few ways you can wear a cropped jacket the Indian way.

1. First look can be done with a lehanga. In place of a choli try adding a cropped embroidered jacket. If the lehanga is too heavy, keep it the jacket simple though elegant.

2. A sophisticated churidar, can easily be transformed into a party wear by an embellished piece layered on top. Choose something in contrast to the outfit color to make it stand out.

3. This next look is something you can wear to a date, as well as a friends Sangeet. For a date, you ofcourse would want something trendy and not too loud, pick a cotton or Georgette outfit and layer it with a jodhpuri printed/checkered jacket to look chic. Try matching your accessories to your jacket or probably your nail color.

For a sangeet, you can add a mirror work jacket or a sequinned one too for the right doze of bling. The same look can be done with dhoti pants as well as our very own palazzo pants.

4. For a trendy yet youthful look wear a rajasthani cropped jacket with a short dress, or a maxi dress. A glamorous look can also be completed with the cropped jacket.

5. And here comes the last look, but not the least. Don't throw away that traditional saree or a sheer chandheri, till the fashion gods rule this You can also use your wedding saree. Team it with a modern yet classy zari work jacket. If you're not a very bling person then your can even wear a brocade jacket. Simple and sassy!

a) mix and match. try to pair contrasts
b)keep jewellery /makeup minimal
c)pick a saree that's not too heavy, to avoid over doing the look

a) don't be shy,and pick bold colors and prints
b)invest in a poor quality jacket material

And like I say,'Its not the dress that makes you look beautiful, but its YOU who brings it out of the closet, flaunts it and gets it noticed'
