1: Dress your age and personality. 

“Wear something that’s comfortable,” says Barve.  “Opt for something light-weight and maneuverable,  which you can dance in twirl in and which won’t weigh you down,” suggests the designer.

 2: Colour.
“In a sea of gold and bling it’s nice to do a pop-up colour which instantly uplifts your mood as well as lights up the room. Opt for deep crimson, emerald or even fuschia.”
