  • Don’t be afraid to experiment

If you don’t experiment your style will become stale and you certainly don’t want that happening. Take cues from the ‘Highway’ girl and experiment with your style. Try varying kinds of outfits, some of which are out of your comfort zone. You never know when something clicks and becomes your new favorite.

Also, it is not just clothes that you have to experiment with. Play around with different accessories, hair styles  and even footwear, just the way Alia does.

  • A good hair day is what we need

We all wish that all day are good hair days. But some days our hair just doesn’t cooperate. Take lessons from Alia and you’d be able to handle bad hair days as well. Beachy waves, side braid, top knot, fishtail braid – Alia has sported them all with class.

Let the overall feel of the outfit and the hairstyle be in sync. Casual wear is best matched with curls and messy braids. With ethnic wear you can tie your hair in a loose bun and even add some traditional accessories, a maangtikka or a flower.

  • Mix n Match

Take tips from Alia on how she mixes and matches her outfits to other parts of the look. Quirk up a boring outfit with statement jewelry, bright shoes or carry a beautiful bag and you’ll be good to go.

You can also mix n match elements of ethnic wear with casual wear to create a fusion indo western look, which is very much in vogue these days.

  • Be comfortable

It is essential that you be comfortable in whatever you wear. When you are comfortable you’ll be able to carry with confidence. Instead of following trends blindly, wear what suits your body type and create your own fashion statement.

  • Add lots of drama

Many times an outfit is simple, but the dramatic effect adds that oomph factor. Flowy gowns, plunging necklines, ruffle tops and a bit of sheen, there are various ways to spice up the look and add oodles of drama. See how well Alia does it.

  • Say yes to quirky dressing

Happy prints, bright pop of colors, t-shirts with quotes or statement shoes…what’s your way of quirky dressing? Off late Alia has amped up her quirky dressing quotient. From wearing a doodled dress for Shaandar trailer launch to wearing funny and cool sweatshirts during promotions, she has done it like a pro.

Remember to carry quirky outfits with a little extra doze of confidence and you’ll be the center of attraction.

  • Ethnic wear with a twist

Ethnic wear is not at all boring and Alia proves this every time. Teaming up lehangas with crop tops, giving an edgy twist to the regular churidar kurtas and flaunting backless cholis, Alia’s personal style varies a lot.

The other important lesson to take from Alia is to keep it minimalistic. Her jewelry is never overboard and the make-up is very balanced. Ladies, I hope you are taking notes.

  • Fabulous Footwear

With ravishing outfit, pretty make-up and beautiful accessories, you cannot forget fabulous footwear. Alia loves to experiment with varied styles of footwear and carries them all very well. The statement neon heels, cowbow boots, gladiator sandals or the classic sneakers, there is a lot that she teaches us.
