What will look good on you, according to your body shape? Here are a few tips! Pixabay

New Delhi, October 8, 2017 : From traditional motifs to gota work to floral prints, play with different patterns on saris and dupattas to lay a style statement this festive season, say experts.

Experts at weaverstory.com and Dastkar list down some trends that are in:


  • For kanjiveeram, go for temple design, wide border, gold checks or stripes, parrots, elephants, and peacocks. Off-white and black will also look good.
  • For Banarasi, you can go for a cutwork or jamdani tissue, with a delicate touch of gold, and self color jaal or butis all over, and classic ambi koniyas in the corners of the pallu. You should go for delicate pastel colors like pink, jade green, aquamarine, and lime yellow.
  • If you have bandhani tie-dye, then you have the choice of going traditional, with a classic bridal red and gold chequered gharchola design, or some of the newer ones which are being done in contemporary layouts and colours.
  • Pick kora sari for exquisite richness with ghani booti. The detailing with such innovative eye for weaving will surely make an impression.
  • Another trend is fine and intricately woven gota work, which looks gorgeous and is an essential for all attires.
  • For handwoven dupattas, patola and gota work is something to look forward to this festive season.
  • Chanderi with traditional motifs like birds, peacocks, flora and geometric patterns is a classic, and can never go wrong. (IANS)

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
