The excitement of Christmas and New Year parties has begun to build up and you sure wish to be updated with the latest party wear trends. Of course, that innate desire to look the best among your friends and family is guaranteed to rack your nerves till you get it right. So are some suggestions on what can make you stand out in the crowd with the latest fashion trends, shared by Myntra Fashion Stylist! Go ahead and mix-n-match, relish the envious glimpses and party hard!

Choose from a myriad of dress styles:

Dresses are the go-to option for this Christmas and New Year party season. Be it lace or solid maxi dresses, solid sheath dresses or fit and flare dresses, you are certainly spoilt for choice. Or why leave out that body hugging dress or a sequined/embroidered wrap dress or a simple solid/lace A-Line dress which could look just nice on you! You could also go with embellished dresses for that extra shimmer and shine! Pick some bold colors which could certainly make you a trendsetter!

For the outer wear, how about adding on some denim or solid tailored jackets, or open-front shrugs for that smart look. Or you could even add coats of all sorts such as bomber, peplum, trench or a cape-style.

Wish to go traditional? Shine bright with the evergreen ethnic wear! A straight cut or a solid/printed A-Line kurta, or simply a printed/embroidered anarkali kurta could add to the celebrations. Another trendy and stylish outfit could be an anarkali layered kurta – match it up with a dupatta and a pant or palazzo style legging and you are good to go. Add a touch of regality by opting for zari or embroidery work on your kurtas.

Or just get quirky and walk in confidently in a printed or an embroidered saree. You are sure to turn heads in this one!

Add that little bling!

Just don’t leave those ears, hands and neck bare! How about layered chains to go with your sassy gowns/evening dress, coupled with silver or gold plated bracelets, be it cuff or charm. But if you wish to carry off some Indian jewelry, head for silver plated or oxidized jhumkas, hoop or drop earrings, or simply the ever beautiful and contemporary gold plated chaandbalis, any of these will do justice to your chosen outfit.

Go-Glam with make-up!

Pick up that palette, and add a touch of glitter eyeshadow of some crazy colors for the eyes to do all the talking. Stand out with a long lasting bold lipstick (so you can eat to your hearts content and still have it on!), and a highlighter mixed with your foundation for an over-all moist yet luminous glow. And don’t forget the regularsea mascara, eye liner and kajals which have now become an everyday necessity. Now your ensemble is sure to stand out!

Love the footwear:

Stilettoes, block heels, flat shoes, wedges or platformseoptions aplenty. Since you will be dancing the night through as you ring in the New Year, choose the ones that can pull you through without tiring your little feet.

What’s in store for men?

Though it’s the usual shirts and trousers for men, go with regular/slim fit dark solid shirts for a toned down look or floral shirts for that feeling of being alive and bright! Another add-on could be a smart single-breasted slim fit casual blazer with slim-fit chinos. If none of these are exciting, get into a youngster’s shoes with those skinny fit denim jeans and a solid biker jacket for that party night.

And what shoes to go with your outfit? Put on some smart formal eDerbys’ or eBrogues,’ and you are all set to go and rock the party!

Recently, Tom and Jerry was made into a live action film

Every child who grew up in the 90s and the early 00s has certainly grown up around Tom and Jerry, the adorable, infamous cat-chases-mouse cartoon. The idea of naughtiness and playing mischief had the standards that this particular series set for children and defined how much wreckage was funny enough.

The show's creators, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera initially named their characters Jasper and Jinx. They did not plan for the fame that Tom and Jerry brought them when they released a movie by the name of "Puss Gets the Boot". This movie featured a certain cat and mouse who were a notorious pair, named Jasper and Jinx. When the movie became a hit, the names of the characters were changed and the show shot to fame.

Indians Rarely Make Time For Arts And Culture, Says Survey

One of India's leading private museums, the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) Bengaluru, has released new primary research conducted by the ReReeti Foundation, on audience behaviour in India's cultural sector. While more than half of the respondents thought the arts and culture are essential, they rarely manage to make time for it. The majority (60.6 per cent), mostly young people under 30, felt Indian museums could present more engaging content, and most perceived culture as anthropological/ sociological. Of the diverse categories included, music emerged as the most popular cultural activity.

The report is based on a survey of 500 people, which included school and college students, professionals across sectors, homemakers and senior citizens. The first initiative of its kind in the cultural space, the report shares valuable insights into the behaviour and expectations of Indian audiences engaging with a broad range of cultural activities. As part of MAP's mission to foster meaningful connections between communities and the cultural sector globally, which includes its innovative digital programme Museums Without Borders, the report shares a wealth of insights that can help museums across the country understand their audiences better. As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.

"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.
