Style Tip by Neeta Lulla: Wear clothes which are comfortable because that’s what make you look stylish. A basic black dress or basic black blouse and for a Indian woman, a basic black sari is a ‘must have’ in the wardrobe. If not a black, it has to be a colour that you really relate to for e.g; neutral shades makes your wardrobe work considerably.
