How to Beat the Heat this Summer! *Speaking Stylishly, Of Course*

Hello, Namaste, Sat Sri Akal!Hope you doing great! Making the most of a long, dry sunny spell, are we? First things first, there is no magical way to beat the heat, unless you carry a permanent air conditioning system around you 24*7 or live in the Ice Age! We are simple talking about taking summers head on in a stylish frame of mind- hassle free, chic and effortless!
So are you with me??
Lets get started….

Keeping the tradition alive, sharing a quote/mantra for you to continue being the rockstar you are!

Well, according to me, the best way to stay cool in this dreary weather, when you are forever pining for rains, is wearing comfortable clothes! Trust me, comfort is the first rule of fashion. If you aren’t comfy, it will show right through a million dollar outfit you are wearing! Stay stylish, but not at cost of comfort and this philosophy could not hold more relevance in any other weather than summers!


Well, hot pants/shorts/skorts are your answer to beating the heat this summer! And who says it has to be boring or casual? Dress up like there is no tomorrow! A cutesy lil floral number paired with hot pink hot pants are amped up with muted gold footwear! Is there anything else you need to add to the look? NOPE!

Of course, you can add your charm, personal style and that wonderful smile of yours to it! And trust me, nobody can replicate your magic!

That is all for now! I hope you all liked this fun and flirty way of dressing up! If you did, write to me and if you did not, write to me your suggestions!

Until Next Time,
Love n Light! xx

The Magic of Leather Jackets in Winters

Like the last few dregs of coffee, when you really begin to enjoy it- the last few days of winters are giving way to spring! Right when you start appreciating the comfort and warmth of the winter essentials, its time to part with them……. Its time to slowly shake the inevitable summer beneath the overbearing yet good-hearted winter!

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John SteinbeckTravels with Charley: In Search of America

Before we step into the sublime spring stilletoes, lets raise a toast to the last few enchanting sips of winters through the terrific leather jackets!

 

Winter Staple!

A Leather Jacket is a polished, suave and classic way of embracing winter fashion. It lends a certain androgyny to the way one dresses up. plus a leather jacket is a great, great investment to keep away the winter dullness in your style sense.

Personal Style Statement

If there is a winter style staple which is versatile AF, it is a black leather jacket. I mean with no offense to the other colours-black in winters is totally god sent! Case in point-my look for this post is as simple as it can get! Plain white T, Soft blue jeans,Brown Boots, a bright lippy, a black leather jacket and tons of attitude!

Be Bold. Be experimental!

Now, figuring out your personal style isn’t exactly rocket science. You put it on and you are comfortable and you like it in the mirror-VOILA! Go ahead, wear your jacket with a sexy lace dress or a flared tweed skirt or the way I did! But own up this amazin’ piece of clothing and make it yours!

 

I hope you guys bend some fashion rules with your leather jackets and make yourself proud!

Next time,

Mazel Tov!

How to Embrace the Bardot!

Hello my beautiful souls!

Before you get all worked up trying to decipher ‘The Bardot’, lemme tell you its just a more proper way of saying ‘off-shoulder’! Now you know 😉

Now off shoulder or as I pretend to be more prim, The Bardot is one of the most sexiest ways of styling up! It lets you flaunt your sexy neckline in the most appealing way possible. It speaks of a woman who is so in control of her appeal and sexuality and yet with its care-free, BOHO vibe, it lets her embrace her wild side! She bares her shoulders to bare her individuality!

So I have put together THREE of my favourites Bardot/Off Shoulder looks for you all.. Keep scrolling to see what they are….

 Wild Child

So I paired this beautiful striped black ZARA Bardot Top with flared rust trousers from DOROTHY PERKINS, just to contrast the whole look( I am BIG fan of contrasts! It lets me play around so much!). And I took the liberty of adding bottle green FOREVER 21 pumps just to push the contrast a bit further!

 Stripes are such a versatile area of design. They can make anyone look proper and pretty. This one shoulder blue striped top from KOOVS complements pink pumps and white denims. The make up is subtle with some mascara and soft pink lips to put you in perspective.

The Knight of Sartorial Elegance!

Hello everyone!! How you doing?

Diving head first into the post, without any ado today. I am here to talk about this beautiful, versatile piece of clothing which manages to wash away all my blues, whenever I am in a fix over what to wear. You know those days, when you open your closet and you stare into the blacks of nothingness?! Those times when in spite of a closet full of random clothes, choice offers no respite and you groan at the misery of having to look for the perfect piece to wear? When minutes melt into hours and days of searching for “what should I wear dilemmas”! I know, I know…We have all been to that sartorial abyss infinite times. Worry not my lovelies, for I have found just the perfect contender to put you out of your misery and confusion. It is what I call the Knight of Sartorial Elegance!

(Drum Rolls please…….. ta-dum-ta dum ta-dum!!!)

JUMPSUITS……. Ladies and Gentlemen…. This multifaceted, multi-talented, flexible all rounder beauty of an attire! I am here to sweep you off your charms with this amazing invention called the Jumpsuit! In all honesty, Jumpsuits are such saviors.  I mean, look at this-which garment gives you the flexibility of trousers and a top, all put together? Its twice the amount of awesomeness. Look at it this way- It gives you the same elegance as a dress would give, but also gives you the security and comfort of trousers! What more can one ask for, really! It is such a put together look that can never go wrong(except if you want it to go wrong…with all the over accessorising and ill fits, you know what I  mean!).

Of course,I shall give you a few tips on how to channelise that inner diva in a jumpsuit. So here they are:

  1. Look for jumpsuits with the proportional placing of the seams. If the seam is placed way too many inches above your navel, it’ll end up looking super ill-fitted. Now if the seam is placed way below the navel, the form will end up looking baggy. So the trick to a well fitted jumpsuit is the seam-which should be placed slightly above the navel for the perfect fit.
  2. With flowy bottomed jumpsuits, make sure that the maximum length is up till the ankles for a more consummate look.
  3. Also to add more grace to a flowy bottomed jumpsuit, wear heels. For a pant like jumpsuit, both heels and flats can work absolutely right!
  4. PLEASE make sure you follow the cardinal rule of accessorising, with either statement earrings or necklaces-never both!

Of course, You can work your way around the Jumpsuit to create looks depending upon the time of the day and occasion. I prefer flats and minimal make up/accessories for a well polished day look and well- there is no stopping for an evening one! What a beauty it is to live in times where you can experiment and personalise fashion! Bring it on people!

So Scroll down to see my Tryst with Jumpsuits. Let me know what are your thoughts on it.

Happy Reading lovelies!

love and sunshine
