She’s witty, she’s brutally honest, she has an in-you-face attitude and she says exactly what’s on her mind! And you’ve got to love her for that! Her posts make you laugh, cry and laugh even more all at the same time. She’s a lawyer in the making, she’s practical, has her head on her shoulders and most important – she has her heart in the right place. She’s somebody whose tweets I look forward to, and someone whose attitude I’ve grown to love and admire! She’s none other than RED HANDED (‘coz she prefers to remain anonymous…. just adds to the mysterty doesn’t it ;))

We all try to copy someone else. Don’t tell me that you have never ever tried to copy someone’s style, the way they dress, do their hair or the kind of clothes they wear. Look at celebrities for example. The salons were flooded the day Karthik calling Karthik’s movie trailer got out. Everyone wanted Deepika Padukone’s haircut in that movie. When it comes to guys, I am sure you would have seen many Ghajini’s walking around, though not even one could pull the look off. We all have been wannabes at some point of our lives, though we could never come face to face with that fact.
So talking about being wannabes, my eyes are being tormented by people who I swear cannot pull off what they wear. You should drape yourself according to your body shape, your overall personality, your colour, your age and your attitude. Don’t wear something because FTv says that it is the fashion of the moment. Don’t wear it because Rani Mukherjee wore it in her latest movie. Oh God! How many Babli’s I saw when the movie Bunty aur Babli released.
So these are certain things people do with their face and body that ends up making them look like world class wannabes.
1) Low waist skinny jeans
Just because those chicks in the Levis ad look sexy in it, doesn’t mean that everyone can pull off that look. If you are too skinny or if you are really chubby with a potbelly, please do not wear these. Go for mid waist jeans, which will help you hide that fat. For the really skinny chicks, go for high waist pants and trousers, because they are the real in things and only you can look hot in them.
2) Red Lipstick
You need the right skin tone to do justice to these. I see so many dusky skin toned chicks wearing blood red lipstick which almost makes like look like blood thirsty cave women. If you still want to wear red lipstick, you get shades which suit your tone and according to your lip shape because there are so many shades of red. Really thin lips look really ugly in blood red lipstick.
SHADES OF RED LIPSTICK
CHOOSE YOUR SHADE WELL
3) Sleeveless tops
If your arms are too fat like mine, do not go for sleeveless tops, or mega sleeves, or puff sleeves. You can look equally sexy in three fourth sleeves and also no one can pull off a full sleeve other than you. To hide your arm flab, go for sleeves which are a bit longer than the normal ones. True story!
4) Colored Lens
Please stop wearing coloured lens! Nothing looks as sexy black eyes. Coloured lens look ridiculous and so artificial. They make your eyes look spooky and trust me everyone will ask you if those are lens because if God did not give you coloured eyes, he meant that you look just dazzling in those black or brown eyes.
SPOT THE REAL
5) Hair straightening
This is really overexposed. Why do I see everyone with straightened hair these days? Where are those normal beautiful wavy hairs? I am not against straightened hair actually I support the whole look it gives, provided the person can carry it off. Please try temporary straightening first and get feedback from your GENUINE friends, before hopping into permanent. Besides it ruins the texture of your hair and within 3 months you end up looking like Tarzan, with your hair twisting at random spots.
Which one do you prefer?
So next time you go for a new style or try to copy someone’s look, please look at the mirror and really look at your style, your personality and your body shape. Think if what you are going to wear will look good on you and not attract giggles from others. People might not even tell you that you look pathetic in what you wear because that is how this world works. Wear what suits you and not something which you want to but cannot and should not.
