So, Bombay winters are just cool summers here in our beloved coastal city. Correct. So, winters here are just an excuse to wear those Vogue inspired, fur-lined coats, those knee-high fringed boots, those lovely cashmeres and sexy woolens. Better. But well you did spend the fashion winters wearing mini-skirts and short dresses, even if it was with a tad of fur, stockings too perhaps, and cover-it-all jackets. You flaunted your legs, displaying the lovely beach tan, the salt glistening skin and muscles toned jogging on marine drive. Hot, I say!
But how about covering up for a change ladies? Leggy lasses everywhere, how do you make a mark?! Great limbs on show, but let’s adorn some other sexy parts of our bodies! You do have a right to look amazing without trying too hard to mask your shiver. Give your dry brittle skin some rest, and warm those sexy legs. It’s time for some belly and arm action, with a tinge of cleavage and back! It’s time to revive the winter chill with a summer breeze.
Go get into the warm jeggings that hug your curves, pair it with a peplum crop top with graphic print, some cleavage, some back, and all your arms. Shift to the display of your other pair of equally sexy and toned limbs. Ditch those painful pencil heels, slip into attractive but comfortable wedges, do your eyes smoky and you are so ready to party. Now you can dance, jump around and even do fancy kick-ups, gyrating to samba beats while other chicas be coy, cold and uncomfortable in stilettos and dresses. Psst! What’s more, apart from being eye catchy, the high-waist pants and glimpses of toned abs, shall add virtual inches to your frame, enabling you to get by with shorter and healthier heels. Win-win, much wow!
Need ideas? Get all your packed skinny fit jeans, jeggings, yoga pants with sheer paneling, cut out and ripped pants, palazzos, flared pants and trousers out of your wardrobe. The only thing worth keeping in mind is the way they hug your hips and compliment your legs. Look for wintry shades of flattering colours. Wear these with an assortment of high risqué neckline, tight fitting, peplum, strapless, one shoulder, spaghetti, backless, cutout or graphic printed crop tops. You can hardly go wrong here, just mind the print and colour blocking. A chain and simple earrings shall be enough for accessorizing, but throw in a cocktail ring or two, cover up with a bare denim jacket. And, I forgot to mention, you can unleash your Picasso on makeup! Go experimenting with intricate eye work, shaded lips, cheekbones and your entire palette. Just be careful enough to not overdo things.
Feet friendly footwear shall not rob you of your charm here. Sneakers are your lust? Game on. Want to wear those comfy flats, platforms or wedges? No issues. It’s still rock on, my lovelies! Want to skip shaving? Could not get a better time off! Those short dresses are no longer competition to your toned abs. Let’s change the game we mastered( and got bored of!) I am all nods to the “beauty is pain”, but honeys, we define fashion. So let’s make this frosty winter a happy toasty one for our beloved legs.
