Be a Trend-Setter
Explore Yourself

Even though most women have an overflowing wardrobe, every morning they have nothing to wear. This is a common problem that every woman on this planet faces in spite of continuous shopping sprees. We always wonder as to how we can wear the same tees in a way that it looks brand new. We try to accessorize it differently; pair the same top with pants and sometimes with skirts and shorts. But why don’t we ever consider lingerie as a medium to style our attire differently?

Bralettes & corsets over t-shirts is an emerging trend within fashion circles. This trend is guaranteed to make you reconsider the old clothing that you thought was reserved strictly for the bedroom. Want to find out how? Here are a few tips to flaunt this trend without looking trashy.

Start with a Blank Canvas: Pair your bralette or corset with a blank tee. You can take solid coloured tees and pair it with a contrasting coloured bra. This look is all about layering. If you want to play safe, an unfussy white crew or v-neck t-shirt is the perfect blank canvas to start with for a base layer. Choose a top which has a snug fit. Let the bralette or the corset to be the focus here. Avoid sheer fabrics that can divert the focus of the look to the top.


Size Matters: Choose a proper sized bralette and corset to nail the look. Even a little divergence may make the attire trashy. Reach for your weightiest lingerie to achieve proper balance with this look. Bralettes and corsets will stand up on their own against a solid white t-shirt. Try the PrettySecrets Pink Floral Lace Black Corset for its front lace up and design gives a very delicate and a feminine look.


Keep It Clean: Although your modesty is completely preserved with expert layering, lingerie worn as an outerwear is a bold statement. Since the upper part of the outfit is in focus, keep the tone of the outfit very trendy by selecting modest bottoms like thin loose trousers, jeans, midis and maxi skirts. Formfitting skirts and painted-on jeans will simply look too try-hard. Select a corset adorned with detail and a fabulous print to elevate the look from sheet wear to street wear.


The bottom line is keep it simple, keep the lingerie worn as the outerwear in focus and you are all set to rock this look. Do you love this edgy look?

How to Look Hot at the Gym?
Look fab while sweating

“We all love a hint of blush, a swipe of mascara or some lip gloss while stepping out. Afterall, we want to feel sexy and confident about ourselves. But the gym is probably not the right place to wear makeup. The sweat during your workout session might clog your pores and lead to breakouts. We all go to the gym to work on areas that we are conscious about and a problem skin is definitely not worth it.”

But there are a few other effortless ways of looking hot. Here are seven simple tricks of looking great at the gym. After all, you never know who might end up on the treadmill next to you.

Bright Sports Bra:
When you want to look good at the gym, it’s not only about the clothes you wear. A good sports bra is really important to minimize the impact on your breasts while working out. But who said that your sports bra needs to be a boring black or white? Add a bit of punk to your workout with brightly coloured sports bras such as neons, corals, etc. A bright bra draws attention to your upper body to reveal a fun, flirty side. For those who want to add that extra bit of sexiness, opt for a push up sports bra instead.

Bright coloured shoes:
Add some zing to your workout wardrobe with bright shoes. Your shoes should be fun and cheery and something that you look forward to wearing. A pop of colour like a pink, orange or lime adds a fun element to your workout gear and makes you feel sexy and confident.

Well fitted gear:
The days of wearing your old and loose clothes to the gym are over. Opt for well fitted clothes to show off your curves. A pair of black tights work really well as the colour has a slimming effect. But very tight clothes might hamper your workout. Have a good balance of well fitted clothes that are comfy as well.

No visible panty lines:
It will be great to wear tight and fitted pants to the gym but visible panty lines aren’t an option at all. Thongs are a great option for those who want to wear fitted tights.

Colourful hairbands:
Whether you have short or long hair, those little strands of hair are inevitable and are bound to come over your face while working out. Push them back with a stretchable hairband. You can use a thick cotton hairband or even a few of the thinner ones. Add some colours to your headband and get funky with them. Choose from blues, pinks, yellows and so on. Colourful headgear can really perk up your look and your workout.

Minimal makeup:
It is really essential to prep up your skin for your workout. Use a good wipe to clean your face and remove any traces of makeup. Exercising with make up can lead to bad breakouts. Avoid using foundation or any other makeup, though a good waterproof mascara is an option. It is a great way to define your eyes and avoid any smudging while working out.

While a lot of women prefer being safe with the basic nude, black and white colors, your lingerie drawer still needs a dash of pop colors. Add an element of fun with colors like pop pink, hot red, classic blue, vibrant purple. Pick the one you like and pair it with a semi transparent top. A great way to add a hint of fun and sexiness to your simple tops.

Now ladies, multiway bra is a life saver for any of your sexy cut out dresses. We cannot even begin to describe how useful these bras are. You can wear it as a strapless bra, one shoulder bra, cross back or a halter bra. Add some sexy push-ups, designs, fun prints and hot colors to give a twist to your multiway bra.

Rouge & Lingerie
Match your lingerie and lipstick!

So girls, it’s the festive season and all of you are out doing what you love the most – shopping! Makes us think how we can add to the ideas to help you shop for that just amazingly gorgeous look. Lipstick and lingerie are always any girls two most favorite things to shop. Somehow both have an amazing ability to uplift moods and come to the rescue if you are ever having a bad hair day or if the hormones are creating havoc on your moods.

Two things can quickly fix that – new lingerie and new lipstick. Why not buy both? As they say, it’s easier to have a good time once one is in an amazing mood. We bring to you exciting options that you can explore for amazing effects on your mood and confidence. Below are a few exciting lipstick/lingerie combos that will surely get you back in the mood.

Black Lingerie:
You don’t wear black unless you want someone to see it and you don’t wear bold lipstick unless you want someone to notice those lips. This gives an exciting combo. Match your bright pinks with black innerwear to add the extra oomph. The added naughtiness intrigues whoever looks at you when you show off your exciting side. We recommend a hot shade of pink to go with an exciting inner in black.


Red Lingerie:
The glamour associated with the color red, makes it the classic of all lingerie shades. Red is an ultimate ‘provocative’ color. It gets you back to your natural instincts and brings out the aggressive and confidence in you. Nothing works as good as red satin, silk or chiffon lingerie. How great would it be if this combination is enhanced by your lips? Yes, you got it right! Go plain and simple on your lips to add that extra package of sexiness inside. We recommend going naked on the lips to add to the natural sizzling look.


Leopard prints:
Leopard prints and bright reds bring out your wild sexy side. We recommend this combination for the “sexy and I know it” woman in you. The bright red accentuates the wildness inside you and completes your look. Pairing these two together bring forward your image and the added confidence in yourself that you radiate. Plus your man would love you for it! ;) Use this combination to throw ‘sexy’ on someone’s face. This is truly a match made in heaven…err the jungle.


White Lingerie:
Whether you go for the casual look or show off your stylish-yet-soft look, white is the all-weather friend in lingerie. Ladies, bring out the black sheets to surprise someone with the intriguing contrast. However we recommend staying away from contrasts on the face for this one. Go for lighter shades like crème, soft pink to complete the simple girl next door look. They would all know you love to show off your simple side with style.


Nude Lingerie:
There’s one color in lingerie that’s always overlooked – nude. Let them guess whether it’s on or off and add to the style with something bold on your lips. The lingerie adds to the “barely there” effect and we highly recommend these colors. Choose on the right color depending upon your skin tone. Although we don’t recommend going for seductive reds, we recommend dark shades with this one. A mix of purple, red, maroon adds to the nude feeling on the inside. A nude look on the inside accentuates the dark look on your lips. Go for this one to surprise both on the outside and the inside. ;)


Bright colors:
They say for every mood, there is a color! Colors represent your mood, nature, personality and your state of mind. Feel bright in yellow, pretty in pink, calm in blue and royal in purple. Go, get hold of all your colorful lingerie and match them up with a shade of refreshing coral lipstick.

How to select fun and sexy lingerie?
Give yourself a treat

Lingerie is more than just merely functional. It has the power to boost a woman’s confidence and make her feel gorgeous and sexy about herself. When you dress well, you automatically feel good about yourself. Similarly, when you are wearing boring lingerie or lingerie that does not fit you well, it makes you feel sluggish and irritable. Even though lingerie cannot be seen by others, it can really make you feel special and is a big ego-boost.

Picking fun and sexy lingerie might appear as a daunting task and may take a lot of effort and practice with the number of styles available in the market. Here are a few simple tips to help you select sexy lingerie. Remember that fun and sexy doesn’t have to be uncomfortable.

Black is timeless
There is something naughty and sexy about black. It is the most popular color of all times making it timeless and chic. It has a slimming effect and looks flattering on all body types making a woman feel confident. Legs look sexier and slimmer under black stockings while sheer black babydolls look seductive and glamorous.

Size does matter
It is important to pick lingerie that will fit you well. You might be wearing a certain size for years but that doesn’t mean it is the right one for you. Your body keeps changing and this certainly affects your bust size. Make sure you measure yourself properly or consult a specialist. You don’t want to look uncomfortable with the bra straps falling out or adjusting your panty or scratching your outfit. Ill-fitting lingerie can go miles to make or break your confidence and the way you look. Make sure that it fits well and flatters your figure.

For those with a smaller bust, frills and bows look great as they give the impression of a fuller bust line. If you are top heavy, then opt for something that provides good coverage.

Have fun with colors
Black, white and nude are the most commonly available colors in lingerie. But who said that fun colors are only meant for your outerwear? You can have fun with colorful lingerie and wear them regularly as well. Make a statement with bold and bright colors such as fuchsia, neon, blue, yellow and so on. Colors add an element of fun and flirtiness to your everyday lingerie and go a long way to boost your confidence.

Flirty prints and trims
Lace lingerie is a must-have for every woman’s lingerie drawer. Trims such as lace, bows and ruffles are feminine, flirty and add glamour to your sex appeal. They make you feel gorgeous and sexy. Also, do not shy away from experimenting with different printed lingerie. Animal prints are great for those who want to explore their wild side while floral prints are great to add some fun and delicateness.

Accessories to spice it up
Lingerie accessories create a style statement and look really sexy. A garter belt is one of the most classic accessories that can heat up the style quotient. It can be bought as part of an existing set and can be used with your existing lingerie too. Stockings are another pair of accessories that add to the oomph factor because they are versatile and glamorous. They can be bought in a variety of styles and look very sexy.

Tips to select the right shapewear
that you should know

Shapewear is probably the next best thing after lingerie but most of the women don’t know how to make the right choice as it is available in a variety of fabrics and styles. Shapewear is great as it not only helps smoothen bumps but also gives you the confidence when you want to look perfect in those fitted outfits. For those looking to invest in the right shapewear, we have a few handy tips that will help you select the perfect shapewear. So get ready to slip into your new dress.

Tip #1 – Always stick to your size
Most women tend to buy a size smaller hoping that it will give them that extra firmness and a slimmer looking figure. But this leads to bulges and makes you feel uncomfortable and look bigger. Hence, it is important that you measure yourself or get professional help from departmental stores.

Tip #2: Identify your problem areas
There are a variety of shapewear available in the market which serve different purposes and target different problem areas of the body. Here are a few most common ones:

  • Body Shapers – It covers your body from chest to hips and helps tone your chest, back, tummy and hips. It is usually available based on your bra size, so make sure you know your correct size.
  • Bust Shapewear – It enhances your bust more than a push up bra does. It helps you get a sexy cleavage while supporting your bust. This is available in your bra size as well.
  • These are usually worn on your tummy and cover your body from torso/ mid-waist to hips. It helps shape your stomach and hips giving it that sexy toned look.
  • Thigh Shapewear – It covers your stomach, hips and bottoms giving a smooth look with no visible panty lines. These control briefs are available in different lengths ranging from mid-thigh to very short. Some of them have a band at the hem so that they don’t roll up or shift.
  • Waist Shapewear – This helps define your waistline and give it a smooth contour. It covers your body from torso to waist line. This is usually worn to create a smooth curve and tone your tummy. It has multiple hooks where you can adjust the fit.

Tip #3: Know the purpose of your shopping trip
It is very important to keep in mind the occasion for which you will be wearing this shapewear. This will help you decide which one to choose rather than going through a host of different options. Nude is a safe color for regular wear as it matches with most clothes. If you are looking to buy for a special occasion, you may pick one depending on your outfit.

Tip #4: Choose the right color
The most easily available colors in the market are white, black and nude although many brands are experimenting with bold colors. Opt for nude if you are looking for daily wear or something to go under sheer clothes. For darker colored outfits, choosing the right color is not really important.

With many brands having their range of shapewear, it is critical to try them and understand which one fits you the best. Also, check the fabric before buying, especially if it is going to be used on a regular basis. The material should be breathable and seamless so that it is comfortable and does not show any lines under fitted dresses.

How to pick the perfect swimwear
Tips that you don’t want to miss

You might love the beach, pool or simply soaking in the sun to get a tan but let’s admit it: trying to find the right swimwear is a dilemma that most women face. We all have certain problem areas that we are insecure about and want to hide. Here are some tips on how to find that perfect bathing suit.

Body type: Athletic
How to know? You know you are athletic when you have similar body proportions without a well defined waist.
Styles & Silhouettes: Give a flirty look and go for frills, pleats and embellishments to enhance your hips and busts. Bikinis are a good choice as they help break the straight line and give an illusion of curves. You can also try push-up cups and knotted top styles to enhance your cleavage.
Colours: Feel free to experiment with bright colours, prints and textures.
Faux pas: Avoid wearing bandeaus. They will give you a flatter look.

Body type: Apple-shaped
How to know? Women with an apple-shaped body are top heavy. They have broad shoulders, wide torso and a fuller bust.
Styles & Silhouettes: Opt for halter neck swimsuits with thicker straps and good underwire cups. These are great as they will give you good support, will prevent sagging and make you feel comfortable.
Colours: Light colours and small prints work well for those with a fuller bust line. You can also go with a plain top and a patterned bottom to divert the attention from the top.
Faux pas: Frilly and thin strapped tops should be avoided. Stay away from bandeaus as they will not be able to give you good support.

Body type: Pear-shaped
How to know? You are a little wider/ heavier on the bottom as compared to the top.
Styles & Silhouettes: To flatter your body shape, try matching an eye catching bikini top with a darker bottom. This will help shift the attention. You can also opt for higher cut bottoms as they take the eyes away from your lower body and give the illusion of longer legs. A great option is deep V-cut swimsuits to enhance cleavage.
Colours: Black and darker colours are great as they have a slimming effect.
Faux pas: Stay away from boy shorts, skirted style swimsuits, big prints, frilly and other heavy detailing around the hips as they will draw unnecessary attention towards your bottom.

Body type: Hourglass.
How to know? You have those enviable great curves with a tiny waistline.
Styles & Silhouettes: Girls with an hourglass figure are the most blessed ones as they can sport most styles. Feel free to play with colours, prints, graphics and different cuts, anything that will enhance those sexy curves. You can also choose belted styles or swimsuits with detailing at the waist to show off your waistline. Mesh and lace inserts look fabulous as well.
Colours: Experiment with different colours but stick to matching bikinis.
Faux pas: Don’t mix and match your tops and bottoms as they might end up making your body look disproportional.

Bridal makeup tips and tricks
to get that glowing look

Planning your outfit, jewellery, lingerie and shoes are some of the essentials to-do things on your wedding list. But probably the key part is your wedding makeup. After all, you will be the centre of attention and would love to have your family, friends and guests admire your beauty. Whether you are doing your makeup yourself or hiring a makeup artist, here are some quick and simple tips to get that flawless look on your D-day.

Choosing a good makeup artist: When selecting a wedding makeup artist, make sure that he is comfortable with customizing the makeup according to your face, wedding location and time. He should be used to working with different tones and shades and working according to different light settings. Always ask for a small trial so that you know what you are going in for and can discuss the makeup accordingly. If you are doing your own makeup, practice for a couple of days and click some pictures so that there is no chaos on the wedding day.

Dress & personality: Your makeup should reflect your outfit and personal style. You need to look good but having a pancake of makeup on will end up making you look anything but you. Experimenting drastically with your look might end up making you feel uncomfortable. If you are more outgoing and sexy, play with bold colours, coloured eyeshadows and deep red lipsticks. For the more shy and reserved ones, pink, peaches and neutral tones look the best.

Skin tone: Your makeup should complement the colour of your skin tone. The idea is to highlight your best features and conceal some to give a flawless and radiant look. After all, everyone is going to be looking at you. If you are fair, bright reds and oranges will really help enhance the colour of your skin. For olive skinned women, choosing a good foundation is the key. Deep reds and maroons are great colours.

Wedding location and time of day: The colour palette that you pick will really depend upon the location & time of the wedding. If you are having a beach, outdoors or day wedding, opt for a more natural look with pinkish and peachy tones. With those having a ballroom or evening wedding, colours liked red, copper & smoky eyes work really well.

A few other tricks:

  • Wearing a darker eyeliner and mascara than usual really helps your eyes stand out in pictures. Play with eyeshadows. Start with a darker shade on the exterior of your eyelids and then move onto a lighter shade to highlight those beautiful eyes.
  • Never skip on the primer. A primer is a very essential step before you start applying foundation. It helps even out skin tone and serves as a great base for long lasting makeup. You will definitely need your makeup to last through all the dancing, eating and crying.
  • Apply a little more makeup than usual as all the heavy lighting will definitely tone down your makeup.
  • Don’t use a lip liner that is darker than your lipstick or lipgloss. This gives a very harsh and uneven look.
  • Always carry your wedding dress or a picture or a fabric swatch for the trial makeup. This will help the artist understand the colours and help you plan and decide your look accordingly.
