Big Hair, Loud Mouth, and a tiny belt. Fashion blogger, Nilu Yuleena Thapa shows you how to get a polished look by styling a long sweater dress with a belt. Giving you a sleek look, a belt not only accentuates your curves, but also breaks the transition. Always buy a belt that fits you perfectly, like a stretchy elastic or buckled one.

Winter’s is a girl’s best friend to experiment with different styles. Wear a short dress and go for knee-high socks to give you that extra warmth, cue in lampshading without the boots. You can even opt for colourful or patterned stocking while playing with colours and textures. Just remember to keep it fresh like Riya Jain and balance the look with colours. You need not go matchy-matchy with this one.
