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.

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. :)

Tulle Death Do Us Part

Hello Chicas,

Like every other girl, I am a big fan of Carrie Bradshaw and an even bigger fan of her wardrobe. Whether it's the intro theme song of the show where she appeared in a tutu or the last episode where she wanders around the street of Paris in a mint green tulle dress, she gave us some major fashion goals in those outfits.

So inspired by her, I bought this tulle dress like a year ago, but was skeptical about wearing it without looking like a school going kid. Also, the upper part of the dress didn't look very flattering on me because of the ill fit. So it remained somewhere shoved in my closet until very recently when I thought of pairing it up with a crop top. The fashion issues crop top came to the rescue and I finally got a chance to slip into this poofy tulle. Wearing navy and black together is one of those fashion no-nos which had to be broken. Also, I ditched the sky high heels and opted for a super comfortable pair of blingy slip ons. Red lips and a dainty bracelet cum watch completed the look.
