say it with a SEXY Silhouette Knowing your body type and choosing a dress that complements your figure is the foundation for putting together a great look. Bollywood babe Anushka Sharma embraces her skinny frame, slips into a sheath dress and flaunts her toned body just the right way. If you have slightly bigger hips, go for an A-line — it is ideal for camouflaging fuller hips. Every body type can be played around with the right cut — take the pain to understand your curves... or bulges.

Break it with some black... Monotone mania may be the buzzwords these days but Deepika Padukone knows how to fun it up combining a colour with another. Red rocks on its own but it’s always safe and stylish to break it with a dash of black. When you have a drool-worthy DP figure, don’t be afraid to embrace horizontal stripes — it’s a fashion fave and certainly helps take your look up by a few notches.

...or Quirk it up Think desi. Think red. And if you are thinking traditional bridal lehngas and saris in reds, think again! Here’s why we love Bollywood’s fashion ‘it’ girl Sonam Kapoor — she always knows how to step up the style tempo. Dumping tradition, Sonam slips into a quirky clock-print sari by Calcutta designer Kallol Datta. We love! And that’s not all — she isn’t afraid to add more drama with a statement silver neckpiece. Such a deal-maker.

pick The right red Crimson red, raspberry red, ruby red, watermelon red, scarlet red, vermillion red, strawberry red, fire red, deep red... the list can just go on. The right red needs to be found, and we aren’t just talking lipsticks! Sarah Jessica Parker finds comfort in lustrous ruby red and we think it works wonders for her. When you have the SJP sun-kissed look, a muted tone like this ensures you retain your glam and glow.

do Head-to-toe It’s the month of love, so why not sport the hue of the heart on every inch of your ensemble? Take a cue from Emma Stone and go full-on red — outfit, accessories, make-up and shoes. It’s nice to jump on the monotone bandwagon every now and then, makes for a fun change. When it comes to red, nothing else says bold and beautiful.
