Symmetry Of Fashion

“Fashion is about something that comes from within you.”

Hello, girls!

I’m posting an article that I thought I had posted long back but then, I found it in the unpublished folder in my laptop.

When I did this shoot, I was very excited to talk about the trend of geometric accessories and symmetry in fashion that has been trending now for a while and I wanted this post to be a Choker top DIY but unfortunately, not only did I forget to post this article on time but that day, I also lost the choker that belonged to this outfit. So before you head over to the pictures, I wanted you to know that this tube top was actually a collar shirt before and I cut it and stitched it to make it look like this, except my choker was a collar choker.

For the theme of geometric fashion, I decided to wear something that shows different shapes and patterns in one outfit. So, the first thing that I picked up was this check shirt/tube top that I’ve worn as a knot crop. I paired it up with my culottes from Koovs. The accessories I’m wearing add to the theme like geometric earrings and marble bracelet in the shape of circle and triangle. I also wore the same bracelet as an arm cuff (Fashion tip). Another way to wear your accessories in a different manner. I decided to add a layer to the outfit and paired up my formal black padded shouldered blazer with it, giving a better shape to the final outfit.

For footwear, I decided to go for heeled white sneakers because the culottes make petite girls (like me) look even shorter. I couldn’t even get them shorter because otherwise, I’d have lost the beautiful frayed hem. So, I’d suggest the petite girls out there to also add some sort of heel if you’re planning to go for culottes. 🙂

So, let’s see how the outfit looks!

The Rules and fashion tips Of Denim On Denim Trend 2017

The Rules Of Denim On Denim Trend

“The joy of dressing is an art.”

Hello, everyone!

Few years back, had you worn denim on denim and gone out, people would have definitely called you Uday Chopra but not anymore! Here I am with another fashion blog post talking about the all new fashion trends and this one is about the very much in Vogue trend of Denim on Denim (DoD).

Now just because the trend of DoD is back, doesn’t mean there aren’t any basic rules for you to follow. Before you go on to imaging your DoD outfit in mind, let me give you few styling tips and tell you the rules.

Rule 1: While styling your DoD outfit, do not go for denim accessories. That means a big NO for denim belt, denim scarf, denim bag, denim strap watch and everything that’s denim when it comes to accessories.

Rule 2: Definitely go for distressed denim wear. Ripped, Rugged, both? Yes! Yes! Yes!

Rule 3: Add something white in your DoD outfit. Adding a little white or off-white color to your outfit maintains the whole DoD look. White shoes or white tee or anything else that is white and syncs perfectly with the whole outfit will do.

Rule 4: Don’t go overboard with the accessories.Too much is never too good anyway.

Now coming to the Fashion Tips:

Tip 1: Definitely go for patch work denim jackets. It is one of the must haves of 2017 fashion trends.

Tip 2: Wearing either all transparent heels/boots or all white canvas shoes will add the classy or retro look to the whole outfit. Otherwise, nude heels will do too.

And here’s the look that I created. Let’s see how it looks:

  • Denim Jacket (Bought for Rs 250 from Sarojini Nagar, Delhi)
  • Off white sweater (Bought for Rs 100 from Sarojini Nagar, Delhi)
  • Watch by Sonata
  • Black boots by Street Style Store

It’s because I like to add that vintage touch that I decided to go for the Sonata watch and the chic embroidered off-white sweater. I folded the sleeves of the sweater which complemented the denim jacket as well and completed the look with these block heeled black boots.

The Ripped Edit: Leather jeans, stripped top, boots with accessories and specs

The Ripped Edit

Hey, everyone!

Since it’s winters, I thought of styling few minimalist outfits and talk about the basics of shopping. So, few of my future posts are gonna be on the same theme i.e. Minimalist. However, this one is about the trend of ripped clothing. I bought these high waist knee-ripped jeans from Koovs and absolutely loved the fitting. The thing that girls do wrong is ordering the wrong size while buying high waist jeans online.

When you go for a low or normal waist jeans, it’s easier to decide the size because you already know where to measure your waist from. However, while ordering a high or mid  waist jeans, you have to measure the slimmest part of your waist. The size that I ordered was size 26 while I wear 28 when it comes to normal waist bottoms. So, I hope you know about the sizing now.

Coming back to the trend of the ripped jeans, I would suggest everyone out there to have at least one pair of denim that is ripped. They are very simple to style and make your outfit fashionable without you having to put any extra efforts.

In this outfit, I went for the basic stripped top with my black leather jacket and paired them up with these block heel boots from Street Style Store. I got a lot of messages on Instagram from girls, asking me about the website and the price. Let me tell you that the boots that I ordered from the website were nothing like the ones that I got but I was still very happy on receiving them because I didn’t expect such an amazing product to be available at such a reasonable price.

Let’s see how the outfit looks!

OUTFIT DETAILS:

  • Stripped top by Koovs
  • High waist knee ripped jeans by Koovs
  • Thin rim specs
  • Watch by Times
  • Bohemian rings (My Instagram store @simplygorgoeus002)
  • Black leather jacket
  • Black boots by SSS

I finished the look with few accessories and my new specs. For those who wear specs, don’t hesitate to try few new designs when it comes to glasses because that’s where the fun lies; in experimenting with your look. Don’t think that your glasses make you look nerdy and not-cool. They don’t. There are so many options available to you now. So, go ahead and change your look. Up your style quotient!

Hoping that you liked the article and found the content useful. Don’t forget to share and liked the article with your girls-friends. I’ll be coming up with more minimalist articles soon. For any updates, keep checking my Instagram. 🙂

A tip for all the girls with gorgeous curls or silky straight hair: Flaunt them!

Back To Basics: 20 Every Day Styling Tips & Tricks to look slimmer and taller

Back To Basics: 20 Every Day Styling Tips & Tricks

“Because friends don’t let friends wear bad outfits.”

Hey, everyone!

In this article, I’m going to talk about tips and tricks for dressing up nicely every day. These tips will also help you in looking taller and slimmer than you actually are and hence, giving your body a proper shape.

I travel in the metro almost every day for around two hours and I know a lot of people find it exhausting which it is, but what keeps me occupied is noticing everyone’s outfits. Yes! And that’s something a lot of girls do. I’ve always been that girl in my circle who points out the fashion disaster when she sees one (but I also compliment those who look lovely 😛 ). I see girls wearing low waist jeans and ill fitted clothes and I see how their outfits are ruined because of simple mistakes. I know not everyone is into “dressing up” but I hope these fashion tips help the ones who are because I believe that if you have curves, you should flaunt them and be proud of yourself no matter what size you are. Even if you aren’t the way you want to be, you’re all you’ve got. So, instead of feeling bad about your body, physical appearances and your flaws, I say admire them and admire them all! Dress up, look good and feel good.

Mentioned below are few fashion tips that can help you look better while dressing up:

  1. Do not wear low waist bottoms. Low waist bottoms make you look short and healthier than you are. Go for mid-waist & high-waist bottoms.
  2. Wearing flared jeans (high or mid waist) makes you look taller than you actually are.
  3. Wear layers while styling your clothes and avoid looking heavy.
  4. Wear maxis and make sure to keep them mid or high waist. Just like flared jeans, you’re raising the waist line to a higher high, ultimately looking taller and slimmer than you are.
  5. Always wear properly fitted clothes. Either one of your bottom wear or your top should be properly fitted to your body (and that doesn’t mean wearing only tight clothes but the ones that hug your body and you feel comfortable in.
  6. If you are short, never go for over-sized bags. They make you look shorter. Try opting for bags that are proportionate to your body/size.
  7. While wearing full sleeve blazers, fold them up with the sleeves of the top to give it a better look.
  8. Try not to go for broad belts. They cover the most portion of your waist and make you look broader.
  9. Try wearing V-neck tops that will show off more of your neck line. A great tip for those who have a round face shape and short neck.
  10. If you’re plus-size, go for apparels that have vertical lines rather than horizontal.
  11. Wearing heels give a better shape to your legs and make you look slimmer than you are.
  12. If you have a short neck, never go for heavy neck accessories but the simple elegant ones.
  13. Give an impression of an elongated body by making high pony tails and top knot buns and showing off your neck.
  14. Wear high waist mini skirts. They’ll show more of your legs and make you look taller as well.
  15. To give the impression of longer legs, another tip to follow is to wear footwear that match the color of your bottom wear. Like nude sandals with mini skirts (same skin color), black boots with black jeans, etc.
  16. Adding just few accessories to your outfit can make you look more fashionable. Go for  elegant pendants, chokers, watches, hand cuffs, anklets and so on.
  17. You can lengthen your torso by wearing a long fitted tank top underneath a cropped sweater. Also, while wearing a buttoned up shirt underneath a sweater, wear a tank top to make sure your shirt stays in its place and doesn’t make you look bulky.
  18. Dress according to your body shape. Find out whether it’s triangular, hour-glass, inverted triangular or any other and look up tips for dressing according to it.
  19. When someone notices you, they check out these two things first: They footwear you’re wearing and your watch. So, make sure you invest in these two to make a great first impression.
  20. Before taking your jeans to the tailor, wash it twice to get the right alterations because it shrinks after washing twice.

Here’s an example of how I used few of the above tricks to create a simple and very basic outfit.

In this outfit, I went for a small backpack that is proportionate to my body, high waist jeans with no belt, properly fitted crop top and few accessories like choker, silver bohemian rings and ear stud. I have made high knot bun in few pictures and kept my hair untied in few other to show you the difference.

8 Ways To Wear A Dress In Winter

8 Ways To Wear A Dress In Winter

“People will stare. Make it worth their while.”

Dear all,

I wish you a very Happy New Year! I hope all of you are having a great time. From the past one month, I have been posting on my Instagram profile about something interesting that I have been working on for my blog. This is the article I have been going nuts about. I know it is difficult to come up with a lot of outfit ideas everyday in winters and we all miss wearing our short dresses and skirts when this season comes. That’s where the inspiration to do this blog post came from. I have hardly worn this dress in summer and before I knew it, winter was here and I was wondering if I will have to wait for months to wear it again. So I styled these 8 ways to wear this summer dress in winter so that I didn’t have to wait for months to look my fabulous self. Let’s see how I styled my dress in 8 ways:

1: Wearing the dress over a crop top

If you follow fashion trends, you must know about the trend of those slip dresses that are worn over tees that are so much in vogue now. For those of you who don’t wish to spend a lot of money on such dresses, this DIY should do. You can wear your black or stripped summer dress over a plain white crop top and Voila! You have a stylish outfit ready for you! I have paired the dress with black socks in all the looks. You can either wear thigh high stockings, fish net stocking, plain black stocking, woolen stocking or leg warmers with boots if you like. There are a lot of options available to you!

  • Stripped dress (Bought offline for Rs 250 from Kamla Nagar, Delhi)
  • White Crop Top (Forever 21)
  • Thin Black Velvet choker from my collection on Spoyl App (Account: Sale Sale Sale)
  • Vintage Turkish Rings (Instagram Account)
  • Black Thigh High Stockings (Amazon.in)
  • Black ling Bag (Bought for Rs 250 from Karol Bagh, Delhi)
  • Heeled Oxford Shoes by Knotty Derby (Jabong)

2. Wearing a warm sweater over the dress

This is the most common way to wear your dress during the winter season. A warm sweater, plain black stockings, a cute sling bag and your oxidized silver accessories is all you need to put together when you want to look fab.

Outfit Details:

  • Off white fur sweater (Bought for Rs 200 from Sarojini Nagar, Delhi)

3: Wearing a plain blazer with the dress

Ditch your sweatshirt for this classy black blazer and pair it up with your dress. A blazer with padded shoulder is the best kind of blazer that you must have in your winter collection. This is something that you can even wear to your office and to any outing. I have paired up with dress with a black belt to give more shape to the outfit. Don’t forget to carry your “something blue” like I did to add color to your outfit and look sassy!

  • Black waist belt (Amazon.in)
  • Embroidered clutch (Bought for Rs 300 from Kamla Nagar, Delhi)

4: Wearing the dress with a light sweater & blazer both

Another way to look chic while staying warm; wear a light sweater under the blazer. I decided to wear a red colored sweater because that adds more color to the entire outfit which otherwise would have looked very dull. Try adding more colors to your winter wardrobe other than just black, white and grey.

Outfit Details:

  • Red sweater (Bought for Rs 250 from Funky Store, Delhi)
  • Black blazer (Only)

5: Wearing the dress with a jacket & waist belt

Wear your summer dress with a nice jacket and a waist belt over it to give shape to the outfit. Other than this, you always have the option to accessorize the outfit whichever way you want. I wore a thick black velvet choker with my dress.

Outfit Details:

  • Plain white jacket (Bought for Rs 200 from Sarojini Nagar, Delhi)
  • Thick Black Velvet choker from my collection on Spoyl App (Account: Sale Sale Sale)

6: Layering the dress with two jackets

Another way to wear your dress is by layering. You can pair your dress up with a plain jacket and a leather jacket, both! Why go for one when you can wear both, right?

Outfit Details:

  • PU leather jacket (Flipkart)

7: Adding a little color to your outfit

Instead of going for a plain simple black/white jacket, you can go for something bright that catches people’s eye. A yellow colored sweater would be a great choice for that. I am also carrying a tribal print backpack with this outfit. These kind of faux leather backpacks are trending a lot and look very chic when worn with a dress. You can wear a belt under the sweater and tuck the sweater in as well. That’s what I did in this outfit as well. A messy bun is a perfect hairstyle for this kind of back-to-school outfit.

8: Wearing the dress with a shrug & bohemian accessories

Last but not the least is to wear your dress with a shrug, a waist belt and few bohemian accessories. I wore a grey shrug that I bought from Sarojini Nagar but you can wear it with a more colorful shrug and of course, the chic oxidized silver accessories.

Crop Tops & Cardigans: Tips for dressing up for winter

Crop Tops & Cardigans: Tips for dressing up for winter

“Life is too short to wear boring clothes.”

Most girls think that it is difficult to look different and stylish every day during the winter season. It’s because they feel that there are less options available to experiment or because they think that if they decide to go for looking good, they might forget dressing up according to the season. However, that’s not how it is. This article, Crop Tops & Cardigans: Tips for dressing up for winter, is a short guide for all those girls who think winter wardrobe only includes sweatshirts, sweater and jackets.

The best thing that I find when it comes to dressing up for winters is layering. Because it’s cold outside, you can stop worrying about wearing just your sweater or a jacket. I would be happy to wear both. You can leave your hair open, wear accessories without worrying about the fact that they’ll be uncomfortable and there are so many options when it comes to accessorising. It’s not just the scarf but also the option for different types of caps that are available in the market, colourful socks that you can wear with your sandals, suspenders, collar pins, belts, cardigans, denim jackets with patch work and a lot more.

In this outfit, I am wearing a black crop top with a denim skirt that I have paired up with these heeled oxford shoes by Knotty Derby. I have also styled the same outfit in a different way by wearing a caged bralette instead of the crop top, black thigh high socks and carrying a side handbag on which I have tied my black scarf. The pictures of that look have been added at the end of the article.

The aim of these two outfits was to show you the ways in which you can style your winter outfits. You must have a long good looking cardigan that you can wear when it’s not too cold outside. Pair it up with a belt around your waist, a scarf that you can also tie up with your handbag later and comfortable footwear like heeled oxfords or block heeled boots. The point is you can definitely experiment with your winter wardrobe instead of wearing the same sweatshirt or sweaters over and over again. Life is too short to wear boring clothes. So, go find something amazing in your wardrobe that you love and style it in your own way.

In this one, my suspenders are clearly visible (which was not my intention) but it’s an easy way to make sure your outfit looks good without wearing belt, which can make your waist and you height, look short.
