Embracing Oriental Style with Max Fashion

Hello Chicas,

Spring has finally arrived after months of dedication to velvet dresses and teddy jackets and with the new fashion season comes a fresh batch of trends to get our heads around. The things that I get most excited about the changing of the seasons are fresh colors, new prints and updated clothes. To revamp my wardrobe, I recently browsed through the newly launched Spring collection from Max Fashion and was elated seeing so many wonderful styles. Their Spring collection 2018 revolves around four themes, Work, Play, Fun and Travel. I personally love their travel themed collection, which is mostly dominated with Oriental designs, a perfect infusion of Eastern and Western fashion sensibilitiesI have created two looks for you'll featuring the collection from the travel section from Max Fashion.

Oriental inspired clothing has been weaving stories of opulence and exoticism across the runways. Oriental clothing is just not about mandarin gowns; there's much more to the trend from exotic prints and embroidery to an air of androgynous cool. I'm glad that Max Fashion is bringing back Oriental fashion with its Spring 2018 collection. From satin dresses to structured tops, the take is ornate, colorful, floral and absolutely gorgeous. Vibrant colors like golden and red are the major protagonists in this style. 

Look 1

For the first look, I opted for a red satin floral robe. Last season’s sleepwear-as-daywear phenomenon focused mostly on tops, pants and slip dresses. This season the trend has made a progression into kimono-style robes. The fluid and ethereal fabric makes for a perfect travel friendly look. I have layered the robe over a black shift dress to allow easy movement while travelling. The robe can also be worn with a slogan tee and pair of cropped silk pants or shorts. I have completed the look with a pair of sleek black heels and silver loops. I channeled my inner Eastern diva by pulling my hair back into a top bun.

Wardrobe Recycle

Hello Chicas,

"A wardrobe full of clothes, but nothing to wear." How many of you can relate to this feeling? Like any of you, even I face this situation while heading out. We all have this irrational fear of repeating outfits. And more so due to the latest trend of documenting every look on the various social media channels. However, we need to put it out there that repeating an outfit is no crime and yes, you will certainly not be hunted down by the fashion police if found wearing that same red dress. All you need is a little recycling and mis-matching to turn your age old outfit into a new one.

So, recently while planning for an event I literally turned my wardrobe upside down to find something new to wear and I got my hands on this lace skirt. Having worn it once before I was skeptical about wearing it again. However, while trying it out I figured another way of wearing it which is as a tube dress. To add some twist to the plain jane dress, I added pompom balls to its hem line. These little colorful balls of happiness are such a mood lifter. They have the power to brighten any look and one just cannot ignore them. Earlier I had made a diy pompom shoe which turned out pretty good and therefore I thought of using them on an outfit. These pompom balls can be easily bought from local fabric stores. Online shopping portals like Amazon and Flipkart also sells packs of multi color pompom balls, but they are charging an exorbitant price for it so I would suggest you to get it from a local shop. Now the only thing you need is to sew them on to your outfit or accessories, I somehow managed it myself but you can take the help of a tailor. And, ta-da you have your very own pompom dress ready.

I have given this outfit a bohemian look by pairing it up with a kimono. This paisley print kimono is my current favorite as it literally goes with everything in my closet. For accessorizing the outfit, I went for layered silver necklaces and some golden bangles. A tan sling bag and tie up heels completed the look.

Boho Chic!

Hello Chicas,

So it's officially fall except in my city where I still have to think twice before heading outdoors to shoot an outfit! With the fashion world embracing fall trends, I present you all my first fall outfit Sheer Damask Kimono. 

As much as I love to dress sharp and chic, I also like to be my free spirited self at times. So in today's OOTD I'm channeling my inner Boho vibe in this enchanting emerald sheer kimono. I love the delicate damask patchwork throughout the kimono and the fringed hem makes it an even more fun wear. Also, I figured out shorter kimonos are way easier to work with on my petite figure as compared to the longer maxi ones. I have teamed it up with an ivory bodycon dress as I didn't want to overdo the outfit, but to make the kimono stand out! 

I have accessorized the outfit with tan wedge heels and some golden black bangles and my fringe tan bag added to the fringe fest. :D Round retro sunnies and ox blood lips tied up the look together. 

A huge thanks to LA Photography for the amazing clicks.

Maxi Kimono


Hello Chicas,

In today's post I will be sharing with you all my latest summer purchase which happens to be a maxi kimono.

The over-size kimono is in ivory with sheer fabric and beautiful thread embroidery. I specially love the back of this kimono which has a butterfly embroidery. After buying it, I was super confused as to what to pair it with as I am not in the shape to wear shorts right now. :P After hunting my wardrobe I got hold of this plum jumpsuit which was a sale purchase last year and found it perfect to go with the kimono.

I have completed the look with golden cuff, a statement ring and chain linked necklace. Also a wide brim fedora to shun the sun! :)
