Hey Everyone!

With the wedding season starting here in India, its time again to deck up in all blingy jewels and heavy attires, high heels to heavy make-up. A big fat Indian wedding is full of beautiful women clad in rich traditional clothes and off course the opulent set-up pandaals, to the most yummy food in variety and quantity enough to feed a small nation.
Here on Style-Theory we will be chalking out everything from jewellery to attire so that you look your stunning best at the next wedding that you attend.
This is part-1 of this wedding season series and will have a detailed know-how of jewellery that you ought to know.

Indian jewellery is rich with opulent designs made in gold; silver; kundan; diamond; stones such as rubies, emarald, sapphires; pearls etc. Their is an ornament for every body part from maangtikkas, nose-pins/rings, earings, necklace, armlets(baju-bandh), bangles, cuff, kada,bracelets, rings,haath-phool, waist band(kamar-bandh), anklets to toe rings. Now jewels are also available that adorn your hair.
Have a look at some contemporary and chic accessories for this wedding season.

ARMLETS - Also called as Baju-bandhs, this is worn on your arms and looks stuuning when worn with short or sleeveless clothes.

WAISTBAND - Known as kamar-bandh in hindi, this is worn over saris usually to accentuate the waist.Thin ones look elegant while heavy ones look traditional.

MAANG TIKA - Worn on the forehead in between the parting of your hair. This piece of jewel looks min-blowing with traditional attires such as lehengas.

CUFF -  Instead of going for kadas or N number of thin bangles, opt for a statement cuff for a no-fuss yet traditional look.

HAATH-PHOOL -  Haathphool is an ornament that is adorned on your wring and wrist. The ring and the bracelet are attached with a string that sits on the back of your hand.

TOE-RING -  usually worn by married women in India, this sets pretty on the toes and accentuates your feet as well as footwear.

STATEMENT RINGS/NECKPIECE/EARRINGS - These are called statement because of their opulent design. But caution must be taken that the statement neckpiece and earrings should never be worn together.It makes for a clumsy and over-the-top look.

Hey everyone!

Go different this wedding season by keeping your expensive, intricately designed gold/kundan/diamond jewellery and instead opt for the inexpensive, light, fresh and uber stylish floral jewellery. These are a statement in themselves and lets you stand out in the crowd.
These type of jewellery are perfect if you are attending a day-time function. This can be worn on functions such as haldi and mehendi when you want a no-fuss jewellery(Aishwarya Rai too opted for floral jewellery at her mehendi ceremony.). This is becoming a fad among the brides. Although it is not restricted to brides, this unique statement jewellery can be worn by anyone.
These are available in a wide range from necklaces, earings, haath-phool, baju-bandh(armlet), bracelet, kamar-bandh(waistband), anklet etc.


So gals go floral this wedding season!!

Essentials for thrift shopping

1. COMFORT CLOTHES: Always wear comfortable clothes while going thrift shopping.

2. COMFORT FOOTWEAR: While going shopping, you will be walking a lot. Being on your feet the whole day with uncomfy footwear can be a mess, so opt for the most comfortable flat shoes that you own.


3. SUNSCREEN: Sunscreen will be your savior from the harsh rays of the sun. To avoid skin damage loath yourself with generous amount of sunscreen.

4. A BIG BAG: While thrift shopping, carry large tote bags in which you could just put in everything you buy and save yourself from the embarresment of carrying those tacky plastic bags.


5.SHOPPING LIST: Make a list of the item you require and include some basic clothes too that can be utilized in more than one way.

6. BUDGET: Decide a budget for yourself and then keep some cash aside

7. SUNGLASSES: These are essential when you are out in the sun to save your eyes from the harsh rays while looking uber cool.


8. WATER BOTTLE:A bottle of water is your ultimate companion while you are thrift shopping on the roads. No matter what the season is, carry a small water bottle always.


9. CASH: Carry your cash in multiple denominations. Smaller denominations would help you stick to your budget.

10. BARGAINING SKILLS: You gotta be born with it. If you are not a good bargainer, then go with best bargainer friend(or your mom because moms are really good at bargaining) along.

Hey beautiful people!

Now since Diwali is just around the corner...we all are concentarting on cleaning our homes...right? But what we all are ignoring is our skin.... Imagine your house sparkling clean but your skin dull... I know that this cleaning and all takes all the time and leaves us tired ...but this does not mean that we can let our skin be lifeless...after all diwali means all things sparkle and bright and clean...Including your skin. So today, I am sharing with you all super easy and quick tips so that you glow like a diya.

I will be sharing the mirracles of the magical aloe for our well being. Now this plant is really cheap and easy to find and its gel does wonders for your skin, hair and body.This gel has vast range of Vitamins (including Vitamin E –which is very important for skin), Minerals, Amino Acids & Enzymes. Aloe is weirdly a close match to our Skin’s pH balance. Therefore, it is able to moisturize and heal Skin fast.


Suitable for all skin types, aloe vera gel can be used even by people with sensitive skin. Let`s take a look at the benefits of using aloe vera gel to treat skin conditions.

1. Aloe vera gel is great for moisturizing.

For women: Popularly used as a moisturizer by women who use mineral make-up regularly, aloe vera gel is great for face. Applying aloe vera gel on skin prior to application of make-up can prevent the skin from drying.

For men: Aloe vera gel can be used as an aftershave. Its healing properties can treat small cuts caused by shaving.

2. Aloe vera gel is great for treating acne.

Aloe vera gel has antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. Aloe is moisturizing but doesn`t give skin a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily complexion.

3. Aloe vera helps fight common problems of skin aging.

Let`s face it: as we get older, everyone begins to worry about the appearance of lines and the loss of elasticity in our skin. The vitamin C and E present in aloe gel can improve our skin`s natural firmness and keep our skin hydrated.

4. Aloe vera can lessen the visibility of stretch marks.

Whether due to a growth spurt, weight change, or pregnancy - many of us are plagued with unsightly stretch marks. These marks appear due to minor tears in the layers of the skin caused by sudden and excessive stretching. Aloe vera gel can help hide these stretch marks by healing these wounds.

5. Aloe vera can be used to treat sunburn.

Aloe vera gel can reduce the pain and swelling you experience during sunburn. It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. When the skin is hydrated, then it will recover faster from the sunburn.

ALOE FACE PACK: Mix together aloe gel, egg white, curd, lemon juice and a pinch of turmeric and blend well. Apply the mixture all over your face and neck or over your entire body. Leave it for 15 mins and wash with cold water. You will get a fresh, younger, dewy and glowy skin in minutes. If you want to thicken the face pack then you can add besan/multani mitti/sandalwood powder etc to your mask.


Aloe vera gel is great for hair and gives your hair shine along with health. Apart from that it also contains enzymes that are involved in hair growth.

It also stops and prevents hair fall.

ALOE HAIR PACK : Mix together aloe gel, 1 egg, curd, glycerine, and olive oil in a blender. Massage this mixture into your hair from roots to the tip. Wear your shower cap and let it sit for around 30 mins before washing and conditioning your hair.

ALOE VERA FOR WEIGHT LOSS: Yes you read it right, aloe vera gel/ juice taken daily helps reduce weight and also to detoxify your body.

There is no doubt about the fact that Aloe Vera was called as the ‘plant of immortality’ years ago by the Egyptians. Cleopatra swore by the use of Aloe Vera and considered it as the secret to her beauty. Today, this plant is used by people worldwide for a variety of uses right from treating health disorders like insomnia to hair treatment like baldness.

Aloe Vera oil, lotion, gel, cream, body wash, juice, body lotion, shampoo..the list is endless. Aloe Vera has evolved over the years and will continue to do so.
