The Grunge Look!

Hello Chicas,

Today's OOTD is a grunge look, a style based on the music scene around 90s which saw the beginning of rock music made popular by bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam. The main idea behind the grunge fashion is an unkempt messy look created with inexpensive clothing. This style combines elements of punk mixed with working class clothing.

 Here are a few ways on how to rock the grunge look:

  • To work out a grunge look, all you need to do is revisit your wardrobe and find out those super old worn out clothes which you have discarded. You can also pay a visit to the local thrift shops in your city or go street shopping.
  • Go for ripped, super torn denims which are actually a trend now. You can also rip your own denim for a more authentic grunge look.
  • Say yes to layering. Add an old sweater or plaid shirt over a casual tee or dress or tie it around your waist. 
  • Grunge footwear mainly includes sneakers and converse. Invest in a pair of chunky combat boots which you can pair with torn stockings or colored knee high socks. 
  • Go for a messy hairdo, wear it loose, or you can even bleach it to go with the unkempt look. Makeup wise, go heavy on the eye makeup. The dark smudgy Gothic look goes best with this style. If you don't want to opt for heavy eye makeup, you can add a bold red or maroon lipstick.
  • Last but not the least, don't forget to flaunt the "I don't care" attitude which is the main message behind the grunge style. 
Coming to my outfit, I'm wearing a maxi T-shirt dress with a thigh slit. Whether it's the charcoal gray color or the Ed hardy inspired rose and skull print, the dress speaks super grunge to me. I have added a red plaid shirt around my waist to layer the outfit. Accessory wise, leather combat boots and my super exploited black back pack completed the look. I left my hair open and added a bold red lip color to elevate the grunge look.

Damsel in Distress-ed!


Hello Chicas,

Today's OOTD is what I wore for shopping few days back. The weather here in Calcutta has been insanely hot and humid since last week. In fact, it seems like Summers are back in this city. As it was a shopping day out, I chose to dress up in a casual attire and clicked a few pictures to share with you all. 

 I went for this ripped denim joggers which is extremely comfortable due to its relaxed fit. I prefer wearing boyfriend denims or ones with relaxed fit as it goes well with my body type. I have paired up the joggers with a bright orange tank top which can be tied around the waist. I personally love wearing bright and bold shades and also mixing different colors. Sneakers are a big thing right now and no I'm not talking about pairing it up with a casual sporty outfit or the look I'm sporting here. People nowadays dressed up in top to toe couture are following it up with sneakers. Now isn't that cool? I totally love the idea as it's a more comfort oriented trend and I'm so eager to try it out. I finished my look with black and white flatform sneakers. I was never really a shoe gal until I saw this one online, sneakers with a little height was just what I was looking for. My recent sale pick, a black backpack completed this sporty casual look.

Stripe it right!


Hello Chicas,

Today's post is all about breaking the rules. Remember how you were told to avoid horizontal stripes as it makes you look bigger. Well, it turns about to be one of the many fashion myths. In fact, this particular striped midi dress made me look thinner and taller. The myth here is that the horizontal stripes draw the attention across your body, making you look wider rather than the vertical stripes which elongates one's body. Believe it or not, horizontal stripes look flattering on all body types when styled the right way. Here are a few ways to stripe it right:
  • The trick here is to opt for the right silhouette, and print according to your body type. Taller girls can wear a striped maxi dress or jumpsuit, but for petites, short dress or tucked in shirt with horizontal stripes will work well. 
  •  A striped garment should be chosen in such a way that it draws attention to your best assets like a bodycon dress on an hourglass body or a relaxed dress on fuller body type. 
  • One can always layer a striped outfit with a bright blazer or a denim jacket to break the horizontal stripe pattern.
  • You can also opt for chevron stripes instead of the normal straight ones to make it more fun.
  • Don't shy away from colored stripes, they are great for summers.
  • For those who are still in two minds whether to try this trend, take baby steps, add monochrome striped heels or a handbag to your wardrobe.
Coming to my OOTD, I wore this monochrome midi dress last year during the summers. The midi length of the dress, small stripes and relaxed fit worked out well for me. The lace detailing on the neckline of the dress made it look even more sexier. As it was a shopping day out, I carried this huge metallic tote and reflective aviators in blue with ruby lips for a pop of color.

Peplum paired with Mini Skirt


 Hello Chicas,

Today's outfit post is on Peplum top. For those who are not aware of the Peplum trend, it's characterized by a flared ruffle around the waistline and was first introduced by Dior. If worn right, Peplum looks flattering on all body types. People who are skinny can wear it to give an illusion of a fuller waistline while those who are curvy can wear it to further enhance their curves without drawing attention to the problem area. 

The Peplum top I'm wearing is a recent purchase from Faballey which I won't recommend to anyone as I wasn't really satisfied with the material and quality. The top is in a simple T-shirt form with the ruffle in leather which I have paired it up with a floral mini skirt. I have added some gold accents in the form of gold chain neck-piece and watch. Also, my favorite reflective aviators in yellow completed the look. So glad to finally flaunt it in the scorching heat! So sorry, but you guys will see more of it in the next few posts. :)

Leopard Love!

Hi everybody,

Todays OOTD is about my love for leopard print. Animal prints are a staple in one's winter wardrobe with an array of choices ranging from panther print, snakeskin print, tiger print or zebra print for a monochrome look. For those who find animal print clothing over the top, you can always incorporate these wild prints in your accessories in the form of shoes, bags or scarfs. But one need to steer clear of overdoing this trend by dressing up in animal print from head to toe unless you are Beyonce. Well, you can be anything if you are Queen Bee!

Coming to my outfit, I have paired a leopard print pleated skirt with a mint green ribbed sweater, which I actually bought online thinking it's mint blue although green went well too. The cutout at the arms of the sweater gives it an edge and one of the reasons I bought it. The leopard skirt was an absolute steal from B.k market. Given my pear shaped body type, this pleated skirt did total justice in flattering my curves. I have completed the look with black booties paired with over the knee socks, which I was so desperate to get hold on but I would recommend over the knee tights instead of socks as it keeps rolling down.

Accessory wise, I have added a gold chain necklace and cross hand chain. Tried curls for the first time on my own, turned out to be a messy affair!

Red Tux Jacket with Monochrome Joggers



Hello Chicas,

Firstly, thank you all for your wonderful wishes on my last post. Those sweet words were really encouraging, keep them coming. :)

Winters are at full swing in Calcutta these days and it's the best time to flaunt those long jackets and booties. I'm totally enjoying the cold spell with homemade delicacies by  dearest mommy and shopping online under the blanket.

Coming to today's outfit; I have styled a red tux jacket from Dorothy Perkins which I recently purchased from Jabong. So happy to see international labels finally available online in India. As the tux jacket looked more formal, I have added a monochrome jogger pant to make it a more fun and casual outfit. I hate winters for the monotonous blazers and jackets which I try to make it more lively by pairing them up with printed or colorful bottoms. I'm obsessed with jogger pants these days, they are so comfy that I can actually sleep in it. Apart from the comfort factor, they come in a wide variety so you can style it as per the occasion.

Accessory wise, I have added a red clutch and ankle length suede boots. Also, some arm and ring party to pep up the look.
