RK : What are the three essential elements of fashion that every girl should have?
Ena : I think fashionable girls always should have Blue Denims, it goes with everything and comfortable also. Nothing can replace a well-fitted Blue jeans. You can wear it with Casual tees or gorgeous crop top.
Second thing, Stilettos and Sneakers. It is very essential to complete your look. For casual looks I always wear sneakers. It comfortable and fashionable. And for party nights or shoots or events I have to get a good collection of Stilettos. Well if u don't want a huge collection of Stilettos then I prefer buy only Black, and Red.
Third think I mostly prefer is Handbags for a complete look. A regular sized Handbag to carry your stuffs and if you are party girl then must carry a small sized Handbag and carry minimum stuffs.
