Hey Guys!

I’m back with a badass look! I recently got my hands on these killer black leather lace-up pants, and needless to say, I’m in love. This pair of pants can surely make any outfit super edgy & fashionable (although sadly, they aren’t comfortable at all). I went with a pair of black peep-toe sock boots to class it up and a plain white crop top to tone it down , creating the perfect balance. To accessorize, I added a silver choker necklace & a black leather crossbody bag. As usual, I’ll have everything linked in the outfit descriptions ❤

Until next time,

XOXO

Trend Report 2016

blogger, fashion, fashion blogger, Uncategorized

Welcome to 2017! Every new year calls for new styles, trends and fashion! That’s what is so exhilarating every year, it’s almost like a mystery, you never know for sure what the fashion industry has ahead of you! One can only expect what ensembles are to be carried from the former year into the current one, obviously guesstimating, while trying not to be hackneyed. With that said, I wish you have the best year yet filled with loads of fashion and fun.

Today, I’m listing out my favorite trends from 2016 that I think are worthy enough to be incorporated in upcoming 2017 fashion , whether on the runway or the streets. I have 3 outfits styled around these trends along with inspiration pictures (mostly of kendall’s street style bc goals). I thought a post pretty much wrapping up 2016 fashion and saying farewell to it would be a must,so here it is! Buckle up, as this is going to be a long one!

Trend Report 2016 

I

Mesh

My take on it 

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Mesh is certainly one of the most popular trends to follow. A great way to style it is to wear a bralette and a long necklace under. That’s what I’ve done with my outfit, this beautiful piece features flared sleeves and a tight high neck, making it the perfect mesh top. I was getting total bad girl vibes from this outfit, so I topped it off with a half up bun hairstyle to complete it.

II

Western Buckle Belts

 

My Take on it

This trend has been around for many years now, and I totally understand why. Belts can do so much for any outfit, imagine my outfit without the belt, it would be super boring and wouldn’t stand out. Buckle belts probably won’t ever go out of style. I love the look of these belts with mom jeans and chunky booties. My all black ensemble surely wouldn’t be complete without this piece.

II

Faux Fur

My Take on it

There are so many ways to wear faux fur, from coats to shoes, it looks great incorporated in any ensemble. If worn the right way, it can make you look instantaneously classy and chique. I chose my white fur coat to be the statement piece of the look. Paired with a plain salmon bodysuit to compliment the pink in the skirt and a pair of chunky heeled boots, it was the perfect girlie grunge outfit. 

IV

Embroidery

 

My Take on it

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb1 preset

There’s something about the combination of black and embroidery that screams my name. The darkest color paired with the most elegant embroidery patterns is the quintessential example of contrast. A big part of the Dolce & Gabbana 2016 fashion show was this trend, many other brands such as Gucci and Ellie Saab also featured this trend in their shows. I found this beautiful black embroidered skirt during my trip to Dubai on sale and it was love at first sight! 

 V

Flares

My Take on it

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Last but not least, bell bottom pants may not be everyone’s cup of tea. I personally used to hate these because of their 90s origin, but I’ve had a newfound love for them. We’ve seen them sported by all celebs on the streets and the runway. New variations of bell bottoms are super cool, I’ve been longing to have a pair with lace up detail or a frayed two-toned hem.  

& MANY MORE

 Some more examples are chokers, off the shoulder, metallics, fendi fur balls, velvet, cut-out graphic band tees, fur fenty sliders, slip dresses, bomber jackets, oversized sweatshirts, over the knee boots, sock boots, fishnet tights, Gucci fur loafers, lace-up, suede, culottes etc.

As usual, I’ll have everything linked in the outfit details!

Farewell 2016!

Hello 2017 ❤

Hey Guys! So I recently went on a week long vacay to Dubai,United Arab Emirates

I really didn’t plan the outfits as I had to pack in less than an hour. I literally threw my travel essentials and favorite basics from my wardrobe into my suitcase and just went with the flow! At the end of the day, basics paired well can make the best outfits.

Thus, this blog post is all about styling basics. If you notice, throughout all the outfits, there is a statement piece, which is basically any item that revamps a simple & boring outfit to something a little more special, may it be an embroidered skirt (Day II) or some layered delicate chokers (Day V). Moreover, this makes the styling process more eventful as it makes your mind work and challenges you to create great outfits from just some simple items.

My favorite look would probably be the outfit I wore on Day III. I threw on a blue silk button down shirt over a distressed cutout t-shirt ( which I DIYed myself) and a pair of sneakers to give it a raid-back feel.

If you wish to buy items similar to those in my oufits, I’ll have them linked in my outfit description.

Until next time,

Xoxo ❤

PICTURES SHOT AT THE LODHI HOTEL & LODHI ART DISTRICT, NEW DELHI


 

Hey guys! I’m ecstatic to share these looks with you all today, I have 2 outfits centered on my top two winter essentials- a biker style faux leather jacket & a pair of over the knee boots.

Since I’ve figured out that it is extremely hard to find the perfect pair of boots and jacket in India, as always, I’ve found the best jackets and boots available online & linked them below. Over the knee boots have been rocked by all bloggers and celebrity personalities so it’s definitely a trend to follow.

For Outfit #1, I paired the boots with a flowy babydoll dress & to add a pop of color, I carried my all time favorite blue crossbody purse. An easy way to spruce up an outfit is to either throw on a statement jacket or purse. If it were colder, I would add a pair of tights underneath.

For Outfit #2, I chose to go with a more refined formal look. Over the knee boots look amazing with a pair of jeans, I went with a grey pair and tucked in a plain white turtleneck to add contrast. This outfit is my go-to winter outfit, you can even switch out the faux leather jacket with a sturdier & warmer coat to render it transitional for the cold.

Until neck time,

I recently attended the launch party of Cover Story’s new collection, It was a fantastic evening full of fashion & food- the perfect combination. Their new collection is edgy & trendy yet classy.

Check out their effortlessly gorgeous clothing here.

For the outfit,I chose my main piece to be a faux fur gilet. Faux fur is being rocked by all fashion bloggers and celebrities around the world from Negin Mirsalehi to Kendall Jenner. Definitely a trend to be followed for this season. You can style yours over a simple singlet to highlight the faux fur, but you can also pair it with a tight turtleneck to render it transitional. I wore mine with a silk cami, tucked into a fitting pair of grey washed jeans & finished it off with a pair of lace-up pastel pink block heels to add a feminine touch.

Bodysuits & Boots

blogger, fashion, fashion blogger, Uncategorized

Hey Guys!

This is yet another outfit I love! Bodysuits have been a huge trend this season & I highly suggest you all to buy one,it makes any outfit look classy and put together. This particular one is from H&M, and since I’ve been obsessed with chokers recently ,I had to add this new addition from my choker fam to the look. This exact one has been linked below so that you can buy it!

IMG_2043

Since I was going with more of a western vibe, I needed a big buckle belt. This one is from Zara & since I feel buckle belts are definitely a must have, specially cause the colder months are round the corner and I’m sure you’ll be seeing all celebrities flaunting these.

IMG_2051

The best thing about this outfit is that you can recreate it with items in your closet or with items that I’ve linked below. As per your convenience , you can switch out the Boyfriend jeans with a cute pair of denim shorts! To tie the look up, I finished it off with simple black booties. These aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love these!.

Chokers & Off The Shoulder

Uncategorized

Hey Everyone!

This was a simple outfit I put together for a casual diner on a sunday night. Chokers and Off the Shoulder tops are a match made in heaven. They go together so well, it can be a simple choker with a black off the shoulder or it can be different variations of that like what I did here.

This particular top from Bershka, Europe has ties on the side giving it a more intricate girly look.

Choker- Amazon

To dress down the outfit a bit, I paired a blue denim button down retro skirt with the outfit. Not only did this make the outfit more trendier as the retro style is trending big time, it also adds edge and uniqueness to the outfit.

Skirt- Forever 21

For shoes, I wore a very simple pair of black sandals from New look on Koovs.

Hey guys!

I’m super excited to tell you guys that for this blog post I am collaborting with Bollywoo-Your online portal to the movie wardrobes! Bollywoo offers you the trendiest clothing items ,which have all been featured in popular movies worn by celebs like Deepika Padukone in Cocktail & Tamasha or Sonam Kapoor in Khoobsoorat!

Bollywoo was kind enough to send me this beautiful blue skirt worn by Sonam Kapoor, India’s fashion diva!

 



image.jpeg

I paired this skirt with a baby pink wrap around crop top from forever 21 and a pair of Steve Madden studded heels to add some edge to the outfit. I went with this subtle crop top as the skirt is the focal point of the look. Why baby pink? Because I felt styling the skirt with Any colour other than a white or a very light shade would do injustice to the skirt!

If you’re into fashion & Bollywood, bollywoo is your one stop destination!

Until next time,

All Black Everything

  BLACK ON BLACK

I usually only wear full black when I’m feeling super badass. Today was that kind of day , Pairing two of the most trending items of this season , off the shoulder tops and chokers . I love the look of bare shoulders and a simple quaint choker. Adding more edge to the oufit, my beautiful black ankle boots and my black knee cut jeans make the oufit complete.
