A hot favorite among the ladies attending the Bombay Talkies screening was accessorising their outfits with orange shoulder bags. Co-incidence or was there a theme? Either ways, the important thing is who carries it off better– for me, it’s Anupama Chopra hands down!

Maria Goretti attended the Travel and Leisure India’s Best Awards wearing a Payal Singhal from the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort Collection 2013. Only if she had opted for a different pair of footwear it would have been perfect.
Dresses in bright cherry colors were the choices for both the actors at The Good Housekeeping Event in Mumbai. Gul Panag is usually not the one to fair better than her contemporaries when it comes to fashion but here, she wins all the way. Sarah Jane’s look is bland and the casual knit dress called for a more casual footwear–strappy sandals? not pumps.

Go out in a busy street and it shouldn’t be difficult for you to spot a man in really nice attire but in wrong shoes. No doubt, Indian men are utterly obsessed with sports shoes but pairing it with every outfit you wear is so not cool. Shoes should be taken real serious, they complete your outfit.
1. Oxfords: It completes your office attire. You can never go wrong with oxford shoes when you pair them with your suits. make sure you have a black pair of oxford shoe before you decide on experimenting with brown which needs you to be extra cautious of what colored suit you wear.
2. Desert boots: The perfect casual shoes. This is the most common boot worn by men worldwide. Fold up your jeans or chino a little to show the high ankle and you are all set to rule the world. Thanks to the competition for desert boots among shoe making brands, you have lots of color options. But brown would be the safest bet.
3. Boat Shoes: You could easily go wrong with boat shoes if you don’t consider the material used to make while pairing them with your outfit. This could be your summer shoe when paired with shorts and weekend shoe when paired with jeans or chinos.
4. Sneakers : No they are not running shoes. If you already own one, there is a high chance that it’s Converse chuck taylor all star famous with both genders. You will find them in different shades and styles. They go so well with anything except for formal attires.
5. Sports/Running shoes: Yes, you do need a separate pair of shoes for you workout or sports activity. They are the most comfortable shoes around, and maybe that’s the reason some people end up taking the risky business of wearing them with every outfit. Make sure you keep them clean. A clean shoe has a big credit in your good looks.
Most of us once in awhile tend to roll up our shirt sleeves for different reasons. To look cool, heat, or maybe just because it gives a more casual look. Whatever the reason be it got to look good.
There are two major ways to do it. But, before I start here is some important advice:
- The cuff should be used as the measuring point.
- Once you are done with rolling, the roll itself should hide the cuff entirely.
- If you are in a formal attire it’s always looks better to keep the sleeve roll below the elbow.
-Make sure that both sleeves are the same length, you don’t want to look like a kid in his school uniform.
-In the end try to stretch out the roll to make it even.
The Simple Fold: This is the most common way of folding your shirt sleeves and goes well for any occasion:
1. Unbutton the cuffs (of course!)
2. Fold over in a way that the cuff gets hidden behind the fabric. The fold should be of the same width as the cuff.
3. Roll the sleeve over 3 to 4 times depending on your arm size .
Done. But make sure that the corner of the cuff is tucked in properly.

The advanced cuff fold: This fold is a safe bet as the chances you ending up with a uneven roll are less and shirts with contrasting colored cuffs looks best in this fold. Fold this way for corporate casuals, semi casuals and even formals if you don’t have a contrasting colored cuff.
1. After unbuttoning the cuff fold the cuff to a half such that the colored cuff is just below or above the elbow.
2. Now fold the remaining sleeve to reach the desired length.
And in the end you want to look like this:
