Bohemian Rhapsody

Hello Chicas, 

The soaring high temperature these days makes us all wish to be clad in minimal clothing sans accessories. I came across one such feather like outfit recently while sitting at home with a tub of ice-cream and hunting for summer clothing online. It was a beautiful peasant dress with a delicate paisley detailing along the neckline and sleeves. Peasant dresses are characterized by easy flowing silhouette with a certain folksy element in the form of floral embroidery and dramatic sleeves. It's perfect for people looking for comfort without compromising on the style quotient. Coming to my outfit, the soothing white color of the dress and the airy chiffon material makes it appropriate for summers. This ethereal tunic like dress can also be worn over a pair of denim or leggings. To give the look a bohemian twist, I have added a golden floral head gear, which is nothing but a hair band worn across the forehead. I have never been a big fan of accessories and considering the current weather condition I opted for metallic tattoos, which I feel is such a great alternative to the usual ornaments. A tan fringe bag along with gladiator heels tied up the look together.

Shine Bright like a Diamond

Hello Chicas,

Metallic is making a comeback and has been touted as one of the biggest trends of 2016. Gracing the runways of Gucci, Channel, Alexander McQueen and the likes, this is one trend that is sure to stick around for a while. However, styling metallics can be a daunting task as overdoing this trend might make one look like someone from the future. Even I had my doubts in embracing this style as the only metallic piece I have ever had in my wardrobe, is a Barbie doll in a flashy pink dress. 

After exploring various online websites, I settled for a pleated metallic midi skirt in silver. Feeling a little adventurous after buying this magnificent skirt, I went on with pairing it with a bold orange perforated crop top. I remember having a similar "parental advisory" tee in my high school days, which was highly frowned upon back then, by my mommy. Hihi. I have kept the accessories low key by adding a black quilted purse and a pair of Oxfords. For those who are a little shy to try this trend, you can opt for accessories like shoes and bags in metallic which makes for a very versatile and classic item in one's wardrobe. Balancing is the key to work this look, so don't go overboard and stick to neutral colors if you are wearing one metallic piece. Also, Mango has recently launched an entire metallic collection, so you know where to head to after checking out the pictures below. :)
