The glorious four letter word, “SALE”, is flashing everywhere online and offline. And your favorite shopping haunts are overflowing with focused and frenzied shoppers hoping to crack the best deals and go back home as winners. All that’s left to do now is to have your game face on and grab those cute kurtis and sassy sari’s which you’ve been eyeing for some time now.
Now, if you really want to make the most of the sale season then we got your back. Our favorite hack is: Shopping in bundles. Which is essentially buying complete outfits made up of separate pieces which come together in harmony instead of buying individual pieces and then trying to rack your brain on styling them.
This hack not only allows for efficient sale shopping but also takes away the guessing game of putting together a look when you’re in a hurry.
We combed through the sale and styled some of our favorite pieces into deals which are hard to not ‘add to cart’. Let’s dive in.
We like a good color gradient outfit and this is one of them. Style this high-fashion color combination of pink and red and complete the look with platform espadrilles in white. Grab a round-shaped rattan bag in light brown or white for just your essentials and as for jewelry go for a pair of shoulder grazing beaded earrings in red.

Focus on accent colors
No-fuss color palettes are a favorite with us, but what we like even more is playing with a bold color and balancing it with more subdued shades. A trick as old as fashion time. Style this high-neck printed kurta with teal leggings and complete the look with silver brogues. Accessorize with a watch and cuff bracelet combination and finish with nude brown lips. Oh yes, find a nude brown which works for your skin tone, you can never go wrong with that.

Move over LBD
Cocktail dresses sometimes get way too much attention, whereas the real show-stopper and fashion killer is a Little Black Saree. If you have a corporate cocktail coming up, an event to attend, or just an ad hoc invite to a reception party then you’re going to need a cocktail saree. This beautiful net saree with dull embroidery makes styling easy, as all you have to do is slick your back into a bun and put on some comfortable platform heels in black. Accessorize with power jewellery like chunky solitaire-styled earrings, a leather-strap watch and a cocktail ring. If you’re feeling like pushing the envelope just a little more, put on a leather waist belt in black, not too wide- keep it medium. Keep your lips nude and draw on that eyeliner to perfection. Ah! We can already imagine you looking like a slick dream.

Go for classics
Revamping your current classic combination which you’ve been wearing for years is always a good idea. The green and red duo is a crowd favorite and should be hanging in every closet. And if you’re someone who doesn’t own this combination just yet, then well click away. Style with gold-toned earrings, stacked bangles in gold, a minimal maang-tikka, and comfortable heels which you can run in, okay running might be extreme but you get the drift. Complete the look with ruby red lips and minimal eye makeup.

A new neutral
Whites and blacks in all styles and for all occasions should be stacked in every wardrobe. After all neutrals make for the most creative styling. We are taking a departure from our usual b&w’s and adding a new neutral to our must-have list, and that is olive green. A color which works for every skin tone and can easily merge into any wardrobe. This tunic not only meets the color requirement, but it can be worn across occasions, be it work or going for a movie. Style it with a pair of navy-blue relaxed cotton pants and clear sandals with a chunky heel. Accessorize with minimal silver pieces for a more formal look but for a celebratory occasion go with a headband in hues of gold.
