Fashion is subject to change but style is evergreen. That’s because while fashion depends on ongoing trends, style is something extremely personal. Your style depends on your personality, likings, preferences, moods and other factors. It’s a culmination of who you are and what you do. However, even then, there are a few things which we all have in common. Take kajol for example. Every Bengali girl loves to wear kajol on her eyes. Some like to apply it deep while for others a single, gentle, stroke is sufficient. No matter which way you apply it, you are bound to own one if you are a Bangladeshi woman. Here we have compiled 8 must-haves that you simply cannot miss. This is a complete list for every woman who is chic, confident, and versatile and who likes to show off her perky fashionable nature.
1. A Complete Contour Kit
Whether you can contour or not, still invest in a good contouring kit. Trust me, it’s a game changer. While all of us may not be skilled enough to contour like a pro, we do know the basic rules of highlighting. The golden rule is to highlight the inner corner of the eyes, T-zone on the forehead and the chin. Remember to put on a lighter tone for below the eyes, nose and temples. It gives a fresh no-makeup look even when you’re wearing makeup. Other than these, there are plenty of useful hacks that you can try with the contouring kit. Your contour colours could be used as eye-shadow, blush and so on.
2. A Tie- Dye Dupatta
This is something that can remind you of romantic Bengali novels or films. A tie-dye dupatta is a must have for every girl. In a hot season such as this one, all you may need is a white kurti along with white leggings or palazzo and a colourful tie-dye dupatta. Put on a scintillating chain, a pair of small earrings and light makeup and you are ready to steal the show.
3. Playful Dangling Earrings
We all have small earrings for every occasions but the ones that really create a memorable statement are the dangling ones. Use them wisely. You could try them with western outfits as well as ethnic ones. Hairstyle is very important when it comes to these earrings. If you have a pony tail and are wearing these earrings, it will create a sharp, youthful look (that’s somewhat urban). If you are keeping your hair down, the long dangling earrings create a hot, romantic look (such as with silk red sari). Make sure you know which look you are aiming for and work for it.
This one doesn’t even need any explanation! Every woman has an eyeliner or kajol. There is no exception to this rule.
5. Printed Wide Skirt Palazzo
You could wear these palazzos with kameez and orna (dupatta) or simply with tops and scarves. Both look great. It would look even more elegant if the palazzo is a floral one. There is something absolutely feminine and delicate about these skirt palazzos which makes them so popular at current times!
6. Ornate Sandals
We all love high heels. But let’s face it. They are not exactly comfortable. So no matter how many gorgeous stilettos you own, nothing can be your better friend than your sandals. Own a few embellished ones to create the perfect party look that balances style with comfort.
7. A Red Lipstick
Red colour is so scintillating! It’s enduring, glamorous and eternal! Whether you like to wear bold makeup or not, you still need to own at least one red lipstick. Opt for a lighter shade if you are of shy nature. If you are the confident and brave type, opt for many shades of red! You will not regret it.
8. A Gorgeous Jamdani Sari
Lastly, own one or many jamdani saris. They are our pride and honour. Ingrained with art and an inherent part of our culture, Bangladeshi jamdani sari is renowned all over the world. Women look their best in sari. When you put on a jamdani sari, you will look like a portrait that has come to life.
