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.

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. :)

Pretty Pleats


 Hello Chicas,

How are you all doing? I'm totally home bound these days, preparing for my exams having no time for myself due to which my workout regime has gone for a toss. Can't wait to hit the gym again.

Coming to today's outfit, it's a casual summer attire. The pleated maxi skirt is the center of focus of today's outfit which I have paired with a graphic print crop top to dress down the look. This maxi skirt is currently a favorite in my wardrobe, the reason being its beautiful leaf green hue and the amazing fit. Also, it's flowy silhouette makes it a comfortable wear in this scorching heat. 

Accessorized the outfit with retro round sunnies, chain linked neck-piece worn as a bracelet and a studded envelope clutch. And of course Ruby Woo lips to up the glam quotient. :)
Enjoy the pics.
