Speaking about how to style the look appropriate to your body type Reshma Kunhi a fashion designer says, “Although statement accessories is a rage this season, one should always consider their body type and face cut before choosing one. If you have a rounder face go with angular sunglasses, and dangling earrings and avoid the rounded frames or loop earrings. If you are square faced, you can wear loop earrings and rounded accessories and sunglasses. For small busted people long pendant necklaces are best as it highlights the neckline. Whereas, for heavy busted women avoid chunkier neckpieces instead focus on statement dangling earrings which will draw attention to the face.”
The appropriate way to style the look for formal, casual and party is tricky and Deepa Mulani a fashion designer breaks this down for you. She says, “For a formal look, one can wear pearl earrings, or a plain formal shirt with abstract neckpiece, a large bow shoe but of course this is subjected to the industry you work in. For a casual look, simple clothes with a oversized tote bag is perfect and for a party look you can wear loud head gears and the key is to keep the outfit simple and let your accessories do the talking.”
The Don’ts of the trend according to Reshma are, “Do not use a oversized bag if you are already on the heavier side. It will make you look more heavier instead opt for a belted bag or smaller sling bags. Chunkier neckpieces are for women with longer slimmer necks, one should avoid it if you have a broad neck.”
