BREAK THE RULES ~ Cape it

1451367442815

Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist. – Pablo Picasso

I am a lover of vogue (magazine) , well any fashion lover would be a vogue hoarder and it is considered the ‘bible of fashion’. So on a lazy day while I was flipping through the glossy pages of this sacred magazine, I stumbled upon an article which stated the do’s and dont’s in fashion . I skimmed excitedly and read the line , ” do not wear a cape with a maxi dress..”. I wondered why. When Sonam Kapoor chose to wear a saree with a cape at the red carpet, she received rave reviews, then why is a cape with maxi dress not a good idea? So I decided to break the rule and went ahead to try this look myself. Well sometimes breaking the rules is the way to go. And nothing screams breaking the rules louder than a graffiti wall. The amazing graffiti wall of GUSTO CAFE,CHENNAI played the perfect backdrop for this shoot.

If you are leaving for a holiday and still perplexed as to what to wear, this floral maxi would be a perfect day wear. This shape of dress is perfect for somebody with a heavy bottom like mine. The subtle colours and the print is cute and is perfect for a holiday. A cape is not only stylish but also shall keep you warm.

I choose a bright beaded layered neckpiece to go with it. Nothing screams vacation louder than a beaded necklace.  And I wish I had a better pic of that ring. It is super cute.

I am a shoe lover. And these T-Strap wedges in tan colour are my favorite heels. The wedge part has a subtle metallic flower print and looks beautiful. Nude shoes are your best bet when there is too much happening with your clothes.

What to wear to a music festival ~ the modern BOHO

IMG_2109

 

With globalisation happening at a rapid rate, India has become one of those countries where almost everything happens. We are no longer left behind. We have the best of parties to attend. American series and movies give us an idea about their music fests like tomorrowland and something like Coachella. We as indians are always attracted to what americans do and now we don’t have something as good as tomorrowland, but we have so many music fests happening in India at various parts of the country. Now what to wear to such an event. Well ideally, wearing denim shorts, ganji or a gingham shirt with boots and sunglasses feels the safest option. But going ‘BOHO’takes the outfit to another level! Well I do not have the body to carry shorts, I chose the next comfortable option, leggings. I wanted to go dark and hence chose an all black outfit.

Fringe and boho go hand in hand and I wore chose to wear a fringed kimono. And the lace gave the feminine touch that the outfit craved. A fringe bag would also would also do the trick. The black silver and gold combo neckpiece from topshop is my absolute fav jewellery piece that I own. It is a versatile piece and goes with almost everything.

Don’t even get me started on my super crazy head turning awesome leopard print shoes. This is one of those pieces which I thought I am impulsively buying, but eventually it turned out to be the most sane thing I have ever bought fashionably. I have a crazy incident with these shoes and I couldn’t be more petrified. But that doesn’t make me love them less. A leopard print ankle-length boots screams music fest and is the fiercest thing you can own.

I borrowed(read begged) these super cool sunglasses from my sister to complete my outfit . I wore two rings and bangles. Accessories wise you could do more by wearing midi rings .But since my style is fuss-free I  took the simple route. Braiding a section of my hair seemed so apt. You could add more braids and look super stylish. Voila you’re ready for the fest! This look would also be apt for a road trip with friends.

Shine on

IMG_1759The festive season is here. Diwali, engagements and shaadis. Which means loads of sweets, savories and let’s not forget the best part, DRESSING UP! I mean don’t we want attention from everybody, ranging from aunties to boys to our peers? Lot of you have card parties and other such parties to attend. What do I wear? The FAQ. So let me try helping you a bit.

What and how to wear:
badge

  • First and foremost, do not go overboard . Choose something that is festive, but not like something that says you’re the sister of the bride.
  • Wear a piece of jewelry or accessory that stands out. My personal favourites are big earrings and cocktail rings. They look very classy and complete an outfit.
  • Choose a color that works best for your complexion. Festive season is about being bright and happy. So choose the correct color as it sets tone to the look.
  • Experiment with your hair. May be try a new hairdo?
  • My personal favourite outfit for the festive season would be jacket kurti(like the one I am wearing), pakistani suits, silk kurtis and crop top with full skirts.
  • Wear make-up with a touch of gold. A golden eye-shadow or a bronzed look , looks great considering the occasion.
  • And no matter what you wear, wear it with oodles of confidence and a big smile.

SHANTANU & NIKHIL’s – THE MAHAL at India Bridal Fashion Week 2015

With so many fashion weeks happening back to back you lose track of who showcased what. But then there are special ones or the ones that are exactly what you like. One such a show was SHANTANU & NIKHIL’s MAHAL. This time the designers created garments using swarovski crystals. And one can imagine the bling and glamour that must have brought to the clothes. I love swarovski but I am not a big fan of very shiny and jazzy things. And indian bridal wear and bling go hand in hand. But then there are two phenomenal designers who are also the drape masters and their USP is understated elegance. One of the few designers who concentrate on tailoring more than making the outfit look grandeur by adding sequins and crystals. Clean lines, luxurious fabrics, structure, understated elegance, drapes are a few words that describe Shantanu & Nikhil. A thing about their clothes is that they are either a hit or a miss. There is no in-between. I love their entire spread this time. Also there are very very few indian designers who actually take effort in making a beautiful menswear collection. If you ask me who my ideal man is, I would just say that my ideal man is a Shantanu & Nikhil man. The dapper,stylish,raw man.

Cover wars – August 2015

Well August has dawned upon us and reminds us that half of 2015 has gone and what have we done? Well a boring year for me yet a very interesting one on the fashionable front. There was a time when nobody bothered much about covers and we went and assumed and adored the covers of VOGUE. But the game has changed now all the fashion glossies are giving each other a tough competition.
Grazia’s cover featuring Lisa Haydon in a tan leather jacket and Bob screams fall and we are still not over the summers. We want more sexy summery and sultry covers.
Harper Bazaar featuring the new face in B-Town Athiya Shetty, gives us all kinds of sexy and that jewel toned dress looks stunning on the bombshell.
Vogue India ‘s current issue is an ageless issue and they chose the charming Rani Mukherjee. She looks hot hot hot in that Dolce. This particular shade of green has my heart.  Anaita with her team just knows how to make a cover look best. Bow down mama.
Elle India, features the ever charming Kajol on their cover in Namrata Joshipura. Now what can I say. This was love at first sight. The color, the clothes, the entire cover. It’s like a perfect constellation. Everything is perfect.

For me this time Elle nails it and wins the best cover.

Which is your favourite?
