Shop smart this festive season

Focus on how to make this time less stressful and more fun.

It’s that time of the year again when we are all gearing up for the big fat Indian weddings. Let’s focus on how we can make this time less stressful and more fun.

Shop smart: Pick a place that won’t burn a hole in your wallet. No fun going to a party if you don’t have money left to buy a drink. If there’s a slightly more expensive designer piece you have your eye on, pair it with something from a high street label.

What to buy? Buy what you’ll be comfortable in. Pick silhouettes that will skim your body but not stick to it. Don’t be afraid to own your choices, express yourself and don’t be a slave to advertising.

Dealing with extra kilos: Pick a size that fits you, don’t pick one that you want to be and try to squeeze into it. It only makes you feel bad. No one can see what your size label says except you.

Can I repeat what I wore? Yes! A self-assured woman doesn’t care that she repeats her clothes because she has bigger and better things to focus on. However, buying separates will give you options to mix and match. Accessorise differently.
