Undeniably, the greatest summer piece in your wardrobe is a sari.

And what takes the sari to even-more-awesome heights is a fab choli.

A special blouse -- be they desi-fied bandeaus or bustier-fied cholis or any species in between/beyond -- is also the artistic style device that will transition your look from day to night magically.

Yes, everything about saris is magical, because wrapping yourself in a few metres of unstitched cloth provides you with the most economical but yet extraordinarily elegant costume of your dreams.

The Bolly lasses always have many an ace up their sleeves when it comes to making use of the Great Indian Choli-Jugaad Trick. Start up your lessons, ASAP ...

It's a dream for every woman to find a bustier that fits like a glove.
That's probably why Khushi couldn't stop her selfie binge.
