Peppy Palazzos

Hello Chicas,

Come summers and we all look for clothes which are comfortable without compromising on the style quotient. One such pleasant wardrobe staple piece is palazzo pants. The relaxed silhouette from top to bottom makes ample room to move around freely. The best part about them is they compliment all body types by making a slim figure look fuller whereas a curvy shaped body leaner. The key to styling them successfully is balancing proportions. People with petite frames can opt for high waist palazzo pants, which would further elongate their legs while taller ladies can add a kurta for an Indo-Western fusion.

Coming to my outfit, I am wearing a rust orange palazzo with micro pleats on it. I have paired it up with a white cold shoulder top with bell sleeves. Accessory-wise, I have opted for an oxidized silver choker necklace. To compliment the warm earthy tones of the outfit, I have added a tan fringe bag and blush pink pumps. A floppy hat to shun away the harsh sun rays completed the look.

Slip Dress

Hello Chicas,

Today's post is about slip dress which originated during the 90's and was made famous by supermodels like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. 

Slip dresses are the so called lingerie inspired clothing which one can wear outside their bedroom. They usually come in plunging v-neckline with spaghetti straps. Lacy hems coupled with silk muslin silhouette make it look like a sensuous night wear. I opted for a casual cut out slip dress sans the lace detailing. The lime color screams summer and the vented neckline provides such a relief from hot sunny days. Slip dresses come in a variety of lengths ranging from mini to midi ones. For those who are a little apprehensive about trying out this teeny tiny dress, worry not as they can be worn in following different ways for a more reserved look:
  • Pair it up with a basic tee or a shirt underneath for a casual day look.
  • Add a pair of sneakers to tone down the sexiness of the slip dress.
  • Layer it up with a denim jacket or a long line shrug during cooler days.
  • Add a structured blazer to balance the flowy silhouette of the dress.
  • Lastly, if you have tried the above ways of wearing them, embrace them as it is and own the look.
As the dress was simple, I have styled it with some funky accessories. I have opted for two of my most loved accessories this season. One is this super cute cupcake purse in metallic pink and the other a multi-colored striped pumps. Somehow looking at them gives me a massive urge to indulge my sweet tooth in red velvet cupcakes. :D
