Sporty Fashion - Romper and Snapback Hat

Wednesday 28 August 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I love giving my sportswear a spin most of the times, and keep on experimenting with as many looks as I can, by keeping them in the spotlight ! My love for everything and anything sporty is well documented on the blog too, hence this time around I decided to play with my sporty Romper ..Its funny to me how this trend takes it back to basically what a baby would wear (lol). But its true and it so happened that they did make a fashion entry back in 2012. 
So what is this Romper thing we are talking ? 
A romper is a one-piece short suit that has short sleeves (or sometimes no sleeves) and often has a built-in belt !! Lot of women n celebrities have been rocking them on the streets, which clearly tells us one thing for sure- That they are not for babies any-more ! Secondly I am  much for a game towards them while I know that most of you are nodding in a  Naah expression-  as they are truly convenient to wear in places where it gets windy or where its a bit inadequate to wear a dress. (remember those childhood bike ride days in dungarees ?  )
You wear them wrong and you might end up looking like a slob, or  Doughy, but if you get them right, The protocol says that you are definitely blending with the trend, and are about to make a fashion statement ! So how do you fit in this Romper mold ? Here's how :
Hair N Make-up:Too much fussing with your hair or makeup doesn't suit the ‘romper look’.So stick to loose hair with flowing waves, or a Pony ! 
Accessories-Don’t over-accessorize. Pair Rompers with simple necklaces, and let the outfit shine on its own. Don't go too matchy with the bag too. A basic tote would be all you need Small purses won't look right with this causal outfit. Even if you have nothing to put in it, a big handbag is the perfect way to complement your romper .( tip- u can stuff it with an empty cardboard shoe box  :) :)
Shoes:Rompers definitely aren't meant to be glamorized. They’re comfortable, and your shoes should reflect this. Subtly chosen shoes are your best bet and will always compliment a Romper look  (pick wedges, Strappy flat sandals, and canvas shoes instead of chunky heels)

So have you worn them before too ? Go On Be a- Sport :) and try one now..

How to Wear Peplum

Friday 23 August 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Recently I am obsessed with running my hands through my hair all the time, which is clearly evident from the pictures you are about to see. Frizz ! Thanks to Delhi's weather !
Secondly I am also obsessed with my new  Ray Ban Sunnies, which were bought when I was anticipating a splurge few weeks back !
And I really don't know when my new Octopus arm candy will become my new obsession(which also u'll come to know in my future posts).
During one of ,my online browsing session, I came across this . It was in that moment, I got an inspiration to style my Peplum floral top which I picked from Bangkok , and decided to do a similar fashion twist by throwing it with my leather skirt. Ok I'll admit it-it was the last thing I wanted to put on before heading out in the hot, and since they say- Stay Cool while looking cool, I literally took these words on a slightly serious note there ! After much of the scoffing was done, It eventually turned out to be a good idea coz the loose floral  top provided the much needed air for me to breathe while I added those spikes n skulls to supply a totally fresh dress code. Well we can also say that it could be one of my Moto girl Inspired look !!  Ahem ! Over to u folks !!

Fashion Trends- Animal Head print Dress And a Facinator

Tuesday 20 August 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

Every girl if not love dresses , and I am not an exception . I am always on a look out for  dresses, which offers comfort,and are a bit loose,and accentuates the best of your body.The moment I walked in the store,and saw this dress. somewhere  it made my heart skip a beat because the color palette was perfect,and those lil tiger heads reminded me of zoo and instantly all the risks were taken and suddenly I am talking a big trend which is bounding onto the fall scene ! The only thing to watch out for is getting the right size print to suit your body type and of course exercising a little trend independent fashion judgement topping it off with a bit confidence(and a playful attitude ,if u don't mind that either).

On another note I was sent this beautiful Fascinator by Shilpa from The Young Designers Collective.

Asos Oxblood Midi Dress

Tuesday 6 August 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I saw this dress on Asos last year, and immediately wanted to dip my toes into the vintage waters,with this dress giving a whole 40's vibe to the length ! The moment I tried it on, the first words coming out of my daughter' mouth were- MOM are u going to school ? And there I stood with the most Pokerish sort of expression on my face, with my soul cursing me for yet again giving into an impulsive buy !  Since Midi length was the only thing that looked current(at least on the runaway) I decided to hide it in the darkest corner of my closet, waiting for the right Inspiration or mood - to say it appropriately, and bring it out !
The first time I wore it was here- and it looked pretty decent with the layers, and very formal too ! The look was really growing on me, and I was able to demystify the midi trend at least . I decided to redo the whole look and bring out this Orphan dress(instead of getting rid of it ) and break certain myths we have for this kind of length !
I have broken down the cheat codes for you all too !!
  • Tuck that top In (incase of a skirt): Its more flattering when eyes dig your waistline till the hemline ! I chose the dress in two-tone contrast color, to get the same effect ! 
  • Layering is a good idea- The midi length looks neat when layered. Just make sure the layer(cotton/denim jackets for hotter months) hits above the waistline or just an inch or two above the hemline(trench/long coats for fall), either of which, really  depends on what season you are in .
  • Length: Thin or petite woman look great in lengths which hit just half an inch above the knee. If you are tall n petite, you can pull the longer ones too. The same holds good for curvy or pear shape women also !
Have you tried this trend too ? How do you carry off your midi's ? Comment Comment !!
