The 20s Are Passe, Here’s To Dressing Classy In The 30s

Though most 30-year-olds feel their youth is past when they turn the corner, they should know better. The thirties are the prime time of life, when life just seems to be starting. It’s full of possibilities and one feels the struggles of the 20s are behind and one has chosen one’s career or life path and needs to only invest passion and faith in it.

Along with other subtle changes, one’s desire to wear a certain kind of fashion style also reveals itself as one enters the ‘30s. The saying goes that age is nothing but a number, however, it does mean a lot when it comes to fashion. So, filling up one’s wardrobe with a different kind of fashion clothing becomes necessary.

From choosing classier and edgier clothing to dresses that flatter your body changes will work best. Even if you think you can carry them off, please try and ditch those shorts and LBDs, that you probably wear to look 20-something. Choosing to wear something younger may actually make you look older, that’s the irony of it.

Similarly, T-shirts with loud messages are not even for the 20s, what to talk of the 30s! Instead, choose formal or semi-formal blouses that spell elegance with a capital E.

The best part about moving into a new age is you can have fun throwing out clothes that no longer make any sense and filling it up with the new and relevant. And remember, at no age should you choose boring over bombshell.

Of course, you can continue to wear jeans, which come with a versatility to suit any age, but mix and match it well. For instance, you could wear it with a sheer top. Replace a sling bag with a classy purse, because the 30s call for smart accessories too, you know.

Palazzos

The thirties are also a time when people have become comfortable with their bodies, a real issue since teenage years for most people. That, combined with a better sense of fashion, makes dressing in the 30s a win-win affair.

But one thing you gotta remember is that now, comfort dressing steals a slight edge over style dressing. Palazzos instead of churidhars and maxis instead of minis define the thirties fashion over the twenties.

You can create a whole new wardrobe for the thirties on Myntra, India’s leading fashion portal.

Beyond clothes, fashion includes a whole lot of other things as well. Make-up for instance. Once in your thirties, choose a lighter lotion for your face and body. They help by keeping age away as well as don’t make you feel the discomfort of wearing a thick anti-age cream that you can put off till the 40s. Oils with vitamin E also help to moisturize a skin that’s slowly losing its natural moisture and helps to remove the puffiness. Fruit peel-based packs also help.

When it comes to hair, avoid taking the free hand you may have done in your twenties and go for less loud hairstyles and hair colours. Talking of hair, how about trying a middle parting? Perhaps, you haven’t tried the look since your schooldays but now it will go a long way towards making you look chic.

The Show-Stopper At IIFA 2017? Myntra’s Fashion Show, Of Course

The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), although a film awards event, has almost always had a fashion show as a part of it, ever since it made its debut in year 2009. Fashion designers like Manav Gangwani, Rocky S, Anamika Khanna, Falguni Shane Peacock, and Farah Ali Khan, not to mention Vikram Phadnis, who has been involved more than once, have showcased their latest fashion designs at the prestigious event.

One might as well as ask: What’s the connect between fashion and Bollywood? However, the truth is their connection is almost symbiotic, one unable to do without the other. Bollywood has always inspired fashion – with a new trend of clothes being portrayed in the movies in each generation, which is soon imitated by an adoring movie-going public across the country! Fashion on the other hand, has given Bollywood stars something totally new to wear and showcase and have an impact otherwise impossible.

Myntra being named IIFA 2017’s Style Partner

With India’s leading online fashion portal Myntra being named IIFA 2017’s Style Partner at the film awards night in New York – Times Square, no less – how could it not do a fashion show? It did that, that too, with a difference, as has been its forte, always.

Thus, Myntra has two feathers in its cap: Not only has it been chosen as the official style partner for this year’s edition of IIFA being held in New York’s iconic Times Square, it is also going to stage a fashion show during the event.

The Big Apple is home to many fashion shows, including its own annual show, The New York Fashion Week. But when Myntra, the style partner for IIFA this year and more, unveils its fashion show on July 13 during IIFA, it will be a fashion show with a difference.

The difference lay in not making models cat-walk on the ramp, but to “unramp” the fashion show, altogether, and making its models stroll on stage in groups, in a fun and informal way. The show stoppers were Bollywood actors Dia Mirza and Tapsee Pannu – who showed that there were many new and imaginative ways to adorn a sari, the Indian six-yard wonder.

Other clothes portrayed on the ramp were a mix-and-match of clothes and accessories available on Myntra from its Gen Next collection – comprising the latest quirky, urban, street fashion and stylish wear.

For those watching the IIFA awards back home, had no reason to feel deprived from not being able to have a slice of the cake. They could simply come online and shop in realtime for the very same clothes which were being showcased on the catwalk.

As more than 20 million Myntra app users voted for their favourite style icon, Bollywood star Alia Bhatt quickly won for herself the title of Myntra’s ‘Style Icon Of The Year.’

Later, there was even a green carpet interaction between the Bollywood celebrities and Myntra customers.

One could say, the awards night was one of the best of fashion and the best of Bollywood coming together: Myntra representing the best of fashion and IIFA bringing the best of Bollywood under one roof.

Fashion Has Always Been All About You

India is turning fashionable, and what’s more, it is starting young. Unlike previous generations when only a select few included fashion in their daily choices, today’s world is one where almost every person is into fashion. Today’s fashion is not just about wearing trendy clothes but also the knowledge to accessorize and blend fashion with one’s own taste, all at the same time.

A leading fashion portal like Myntra cannot but be elated at this change. Anant Narayanan, CEO, Myntra & Jabong, in an interview with CNBC, said that fashion and lifestyle are undergoing a major transformation in recent times.

In fact, he went so far as to describe fashion as having emerged as a culture. The reasons for this, elaborated Ananth, was fashion becoming one of the best forms of self-expression; the modern Indian woman becoming aware about what she wants to do; and existing biases getting better. Making Myntra a daily habit for women was a task they had undertaken, shared Ananth.

All About You

What better example than Deepika Padukone’s All About You when it comes to a clothes brand created to give the wearer the freedom to actually wear what one wants, be it in the material that best suits the Indian weather, or having the choice of wearing western as well as Indian (which not many brands offer) and also being one of the most affordable brands in fashion, costing just between Rs 800-Rs 4000.

As Deepika Padukone shared in the same interview, when she initially thought of launching her own clothesline, it was to give expression to the girl inside. But her passion soon evolved into the idea of empowering girls and women, from age 15 to age 40, by giving them the right to find their preferred fashion within this brand.

Deepika said that fashion was an extension of a person’s personality and it truly came into fruition when one had the liberty to wear what they wanted to at home, work or any social setting without any peer pressure. Talking of her Spring-Summer collection launched recently, she said it had softer and lighter fabrics, lace, florals and pastels, with comfort being the key word. Deepika also emphasized that knowledge and acceptance of one’s own uniqueness is key and it is upto each one of us to mould it into our strength. Only then can a person drive out the irrelevant and embrace themselves.

All About You has also proved to be one of the top five women’s wear brands on Myntra, and among the top ten on Jabong, according to Ananth. The unique partnership of Deepika and Ananth, one an actor and the other a businessman, can be credited with the success that All About You has seen in the online retail space. By making the brand a lot more accessible to a larger audience, by endorsing simplicity as well as pizzazz, All About You has reduced the isolation that a lot of brands create by catering to specific trends and audiences. As Deepika has stated, it is all about exploring and embracing your true self which would in turn reflect in one’s style and clothing, the idea on which All About You is based on. As a matter of fact, Deepika based the idea of the brand based on her own mother’s elegant and relatable fashion which inspired her.

All About You has seen good growth in recent years. With a Year on Year growth of 150%, it’s no surprise that the brand is so hugely successful and will continue scaling higher in the foreseeable future.

Myntra, India’s leading online fashion portal, is bringing its flagship End of Reason Sale once again starting January 3, 2017. This is the fifth edition of the landmark sale. It lasts up to January 5, 2017.

Just when you think all the festivals and celebrations are over with the year coming to a close, the Myntra sale, coming as it does at the start of a new year, brings a whiff of hope and excitement with it. What’s more, the sale promises to deliver everything your heart desires with its tagline: “Jo chaho milega, jab Myntra ka sale khulega” (meaning whatever you want you can have, when the Myntra sale opens).

Around 1800 top Indian and international brands with their latest winter collections are part of the sale, which expects about 10 million-plus customers to come online to shop and create a new wardrobe for the New Year. To participate, customers of Myntra can shop through the Myntra mobile app, the Myntra mobile website and the Myntra website on the desktop.

There are many other innovative activities, like the Mannequin Challenge, which can be used to uncover the prices of products.

By now, most people must have spotted the Myntra ad at least once. The ad features both P V Sindhu and Hrithik Roshan. While the Olympic champion and ace shuttler is seen tackling two players across the net even as she prefers to browse through he Myntra App, the Bollywood star is seen in his branded clothing lien HRX, jogging and giving a shoutout about the sale dates.

The 35-second ad tells shoppers to get ready for the ultimate sale. It encapsulates the secret fashion desires of people, and helps to build excitement. The commercial can be spotted on top TV Channels, while the marketing campaign for the sale is spread across print, radio, digital and social media. On the digital front,, besides the game, Twitter has seen Indian off-spinner R Ashwin doing his bit for the sale.

The TVC has been conceptualized by Happy Creative and directed by Razneesh Ghai. Kartik Iyer, CEO, Happy Creative Services, had this to say: “Working with Myntra on their EORS campaign has always been exciting, with the sale growing by leaps and bounds every season. The aim has been to build excitement around the most awaited fashion sale in the country.”

On the campaign, Gunjan Soni, CMO & Head, International Brands Business, Myntra, said, “EORS has emerged as the most sought-after fashion sale event in the country. Through this campaign, we are reaching out to our existing and new customers, urging them to prepare and make the most of the three-day sale.”

Gunjan Soni added, “The size and reach of our marketing campaign for the upcoming ‘End of Reason Sale’ is unprecedented. We have come up with an array of innovative activities to engage with our customers. We are doing a take on the Mannequin Challenge to reveal prices of products, gamification to drive traffic and a focused regional push on digital.”
