Transitional Weather Dressing

Hello Chicas,

So it's officially that time of the year when the weather seems to be going through an identity crisis. One day, it's hot and sunny while the next day we are subjected to cool breezy weather. As these early days of spring are turning out to be super unpredictable, it's time to gear up for the transitional weather dressing. Now is the perfect time to take out your short dresses for a spin and layering them with pieces from your winter wardrobe. And today I'll be talking about one such outfit which is perfect to wear during this transitional time.

On one such confused weather day, I wore a maroon bodycon dress which has this tie-up detailing on the neckline, this trend has been my favorite for quite some time now as I find it very sexy. The dress is in jersey fabric, making it light and airy. I have layered the dress with a beige shrug which has fringes on the hem. This shrug from KAZO has buttons on the shoulder and can be also worn as a top. I really loved the final outcome of mixing these two warm toned colors. Coming to accessories, I have gone all color coordinated this time with a pair of chunky high heels in cream and oxblood lips. 

So this is one way to mix and match different pieces from your wardrobe without having to compromise your winter wardrobe soon. My next post will also be on early spring weather but with bright pastels.

Closet Must Have- The Slip Dress

Hello Chicas,

How have you all been? I'm back with the last outfit from the inner wear as outer wear series and this time I have styled a slip dress. I had shot this outfit quite a long time back but didn't get the chance to post as I have been on a crazy schedule for the past few months. Anyway, coming to the most favorite trend of mine, slip dresses are versatile and is one of the most multi-purpose pieces of clothing one can own. I have been wearing them since last summers in various ways and they aren't going away anytime soon. Although wearing them in summers is an easier job, but that doesn't mean you have to keep them away during the cooler weather. The key to make your slip dress transition easily from season to season is layering. Be it a chunky knit or a denim jacket, the easiest way to wear them in colder weather is by pairing them with another article of clothing. 

Coming to my look, I am wearing a suede slip dress in baby blue. This is such a cute and soothing color and can be worn in summers too. I have paired the dress with a ribbed mock neck full sleeve top. As mentioned above, you can team it up with any piece from your wardrobe. Wardrobe basics like a white shirt or something as simple as a basic tee can be worn with the slip dress to amp up the look. For accessories I went for a pale pink pumps to compliment the pastel dress and a white studded sling with tassel detailing.

My Red Valentine

 Hello Chicas,

Firstly, I would like to apologize for the delayed post on my Valentine's outfit. I have been super busy trying to multi-task so many things at a time. I ended up spending Valentine's week in a village with my friends on a field visit for our college project and it was an altogether very unique experience.
I have always celebrated Valentine's day with my friends and family. For me it has been the perfect excuse to put on a cute outfit and hit the town. 

Now moving onto the outfit, I came across this midi length red tulle dress in a thrift store and the very first thing which came to my mind was that I found my Valentine's day outfit. However, a red dress sounded way too cliched to me for Valentine's and therefore I decided to add some layer to it. I have paired a floral embroidered crop top over the dress which is again another way to flaunt the innerwear as outerwear trend. The floral embroidery and the red color makes for a perfect Valentine's day look, perhaps out for a brunch with your girlfriends or on a date with your lover. For accessories, I opted for a black handbag with metal studs which gives the outfit a very edgy look. I finished the look with a classic pair of black pumps, mid parted hair and a black lace hand chain.

Meshing Around

Hello Chicas,

In my last blog post I started off with the series inner wear as outerwear and today's post is in continuation of it. As we all know Valentine's day is around the corner, so I have created this look keeping in mind the season of love.

An easy way of wearing the lingerie trend is by layering it with a sheer top or a peek-a-boo shirt. I have paired the same faux leather Bralette from the last post with a sheer black top. I totally fell for the sleeves of the top the moment I saw it. Mesh or netted fabric is currently trending and is my personal favorite too, as it makes one look effortlessly sexy. I have paired the top with a pleated skirt in blush pink. The color and the flared hem of the skirt makes for a pretty cute date outfit. Lastly, I have added a bomber jacket which has this really beautiful floral embroidery. I'm so glad that embroidery is back in fashion, I have already ended up buying quite a few of them. This look is a blend of both cute and sexy at the same time, the blush pink color with the floral embroidery gives a very enchanting feel, whereas the combination of mesh top and Bralette lends an edgy look to the outfit.

Accessory wise, I have just added a pair of black pumps to complete the look. Also, I finally tried my hands on brown lipstick and I'm totally crushing over it. The one I'm wearing is a lip filler from Colorbar in shade 14. It's a pretty affordable shade, a little drying since it comes in the form of a pencil but looks smashing.

Peek-a-boo

Hello Chicas,

The trend of wearing innerwear as outerwear has made a comeback and how! A host of celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Rihanna can be seen rocking this trend with their delectable lingerie collection. This fashion trend is not exactly a new phenomenon as stars like Madonna, Beyonce had nailed this style in the past. While we all are guilty of hoarding countless slip dresses last season, the underwear as outerwear trend doesn't limit itself to just these slinky dresses. From bralettes to lacey camisoles, the fashion world counts them as a legitimate outdoor wear. I personally found this whole concept of wearing something as intimate as lingerie in the broad daylight bold and empowering. However, pulling off this trend is not an easy job. Newbies might find it intimidating to show off lingerie in public. So one can start off with a little peek-a-boo look by giving a glimpse of a lacey camisole or a bra worn underneath.

In today's post I'll be sharing part 1 of the underwear as outerwear series with you all and I promise to return with a few more posts on how to wear this trend. Coming to my outfit, I have chosen a black faux leather bralette to start off with this trend. I have worn the bralette over a white shirt and paired it with a checked mustard yellow pleated skirt. This has to be the easiest way to wear this trend without revealing much. For accessorizing my outfit, I opted for a white studded purse with tassel detailing and knee high socks with combat boots to battle the winter chill.

Camo Crushing

Hello Chicas,

I have been a big fan of camouflage print since my childhood days and have always had something or the other in this military inspired print. Whether for fashion or function, camo has never been out of style. Just like polka dots or stripes, camo remains to be a wardrobe classic however, this season the print is hotter than ever with celebrities and designer popularizing it. The classic olive green has to be my personal favorite which is perfect for the fall weather. Many people find it difficult to pull off this print as it looks very tough and masculine, however the trick to work this trend lies in wearing it in moderation.

Following are some of the few ways to wear this print like a pro:
  • Do not wear camo print head to toe. Stick to only one camo piece at a time to make a statement.
  • You can either wear camo with colors like black, white and other neutrals or add pastel shades to soften the look.
  • Accessorize your outfit well with golden or silver jewelry to keep the look on the feminine side.
  • Lastly, go for a well-fitted camo piece. If the camo jacket is an oversize one, balance it out with a fitted dress or tee underneath.
Coming to my outfit, I am wearing a camouflage jacket in the classic olive green version. I fell in love with this jacket the moment I saw it. The patchwork detailing adds an element of fun to this otherwise rough and tough jacket. I have worn this jacket over a graphic bodycon dress. Again, the "No thanks" slogan goes pretty well with the bad-ass army look. The soft pastel pink color of the dress lends a feminine touch to the look. I have further accessorized the outfit with combat boots and layered chokers in black. Lastly, oxblood lips and round sunglasses completed the tough-girl look.
