How to get the retro Indian look
| May 24, 2012 15:13 IST
There are some things in life that keep you inspired; just as the Chanel Paris-Bombay Métiers d'Art 2011/12 show has driven us fashion patrons revive these India inspired styles. Here are the key trends from the show we absolutely adore!
The Smoky eye
Dark and smoky eye makeup has been making waves in the fashion scene for some time now, yet we can't get enough. Avoid shimmer shadows which will enhance your creases; go for matte and creamy shadows instead. Ditch colour and stick to charcoal black kohl for defining your eyes and giving it the sexy, sultry effect!
The swanky maang-tikka
One of the most popular Indian adornments gets an unusual twist. The M
just got funkier with the eclectic designs showcased at the Chanel Paris-Bombay collection. Hip and happening with a flavour of tradition, this fun accessory is sure to spice up any outfit.
The hippie bun
Indian Sadhus couldn't care much about couture, but Fashion takes its cue from everywhere. This unconventional messy braided bun is inspired from our very own cultural heritage of the saints of Banaras. Wild and hippie, we say, thumbs up!
The super slick bun
Femininity with a touch of class, the super slick bun works great when you're short of time yet want to make an impact! Hold your hair back in a tight bun and leave some strands loose; to make sure your hair stays in place and to add sheen, work hold mousse through your hair while styling it.
