The festive season is upon us, and Aakriti Patni puts together a few looks to make you dazzle at year-end parties

The end of the year is always a happy time and there is an indescribable magic in the air. Whether it’s the excitement of the festive season or the relief of having got through yet another year, there’s something powerful about the last month of the year. And, as the Christmas cheer engulfs us and we make elaborate plans for New Year’s Eve parties, we hope to end the year with an impeccable fashionable flair as we don on the latest styles. But, despite our best efforts, we all struggle to put together stylish outfits. An office party, a Christmas brunch or a New Year’s Eve party — we imagine ourselves dressed to our nines, but we end up spending hours trying to match outfits without success. This year we’re bringing you an end-of-the-year gift — our festive look book. Four consolidated looks for different events; it’s time to get stylish!

Sequined evenings

The quintessential party look, sequined dresses are the latest trend. You will be effortlessly elegant yet chic in this darkened turquoise shimmering dress if you pair it with glittering heels and a quaint clutch. It’s perfect for New Year’s Eve parties or even cocktail parties you may have to attend this wedding season.

Who doesn’t love drooling over celebrity looks and outfits? And, if you’re in the mood to fashion your outfit after your favourite celebrity, we bring you some of our favourite celebrity looks from recent times.

Dressed to the whites


A vision in white, Gigi Hadid is the symbol of sophistication and style. In a trendy white pantsuit with beige loafer mules, Gigi’s outfit is one that we would love to emulate.

Layer upon layer

India’s style icon, Bollywood celebrity Sonam Kapoor, effortlessly pulls off the layered look and ensures us that chic sweaters and graphic jackets can be worn even in the not so cold weather. We love her colourful yet classic outfit.

The blackened style

This isn’t the usual little black dress that you see many celebrities sporting. Priyanka Chopra stuns in a black turtleneck midi dress with strappy block heels, a look that’s perfect for house parties and casual lunches. And we couldn’t be happier, especially since it’s an easy look to imitate.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
