Don’t we all love glitzy Indian wear? Well wedding season means a lot of sarees, suits and lenghas. This often means wearing heels which can make carrying your attire a bit of a task. And if like me, you are born with two left feet heels, it can be a daunting task! Last night we saw photos of Sonam Kapoor’s stylish sister Reha Kapoor don a pair of sneakers with her Anamika Khanna outfit and the sneaker lover in me rejoiced. Why has no one ever suggested it to me?

Pick white sneakers

Let the sneakers pop out. Do not try to colour co-ordinate them by wearing a same coloured pair. They need to pop out to make you stand out.

Pull it off

You need a sassy attitude to pull it off. Like every Indian wedding the ‘aunties’ are going to question you? Be ready.

Wear them embellished
