Fashion for the “little larger”

In spite of being slightly on the heavier side, I never really found any reason to deny myself of fashion. I have always believed that fashionable does not necessarily have to equate with an hour-glass figure. All that really matters is the right cut and the perfect fit.

Well, last week I had my friend’s birthday party in Mayfair, Gangtok and we all were forced to attend the party in dresses.

The Ensemble

 I decided to stick to the basics and wore this bright red dress. This dress was a result of impulsive shopping which I never regretted. I got this from Style Check, Gangtok. This beautiful hill station, in my opinion happens to be a huge fashion hub, at the most reasonable prices. The dress made my wallet light by just Rs.800.  Image

Fashion Alert:

Since I have heavy arms, I stuck to three- quarter sleeves. I made sure the fall of the dress is such that it does not cling to the body. The length of the dress is moderately short, around two inches above the knees. I always believe in highlighting the best assets in your body. Keeping that in mind, I chose a pretty neckline. This dress has a lovely beaded work along its neckline which made it all the more appealing. The final touch is given with a pair of black stockings. It gives the dress a chic “black and red” essence.

Remember girls, if you have issues with your body and you are not too willing to go for the classic “little black dress” try going for a bright color. Trust me, red works miracles. The color red usually takes eyes away from the body and to the dress. As for the fall of the dress, do not go for a balloon-cut or anything oversized. That generally makes you look larger than what you actually are.Image


Make sure you accessorize well. Nothing enhances a red dress more than a black embellished bag. For the jewellery, silver hoops look neat yet stylish and you could add a pendant around your neck.


As the old saying goes, “A girl with pretty shoes is always beautiful”. Last but not the least, a pair of sexy black stilettos completes the look. Here, I opted for a pair of snake-skin lookalike stilettos. These shoes belong to my friend who got them from Heels and Toes, Gangtok.

Always remember nothing can ever beat the beauty that lies in your confidence. So no matter how your body maybe, wear whatever your heart wants to and simply follow the mantra of confidence.

For the final touch, keep that gorgeous smile on and stay stylish. Do not forget to leave your comments and suggestions.
