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:

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.

Wearing Dungaree In Winters

Hello, girls!

We all have those clothes in our summer wardrobe that we absolutely love but cannot wear during winters. You can always wear body warmers with them but they just wouldn’t go. That’s why these winters; I’m going to come up with articles on how you can wear your summer apparel even in winters and save money whole looking stylish. You can look fabulous even on a budget. In this article, I’ll give you few tips on how to wear a dungaree in winters.

In the outfit, I’m wearing a high neck off-white sweater that I bought from Funky Store (Kamla Nagar) under the Dungaree. I decided to go for a high neck not only because it looks very classy but also because, a deep or V-neck sweater wouldn’t be as warm. You can also wear a slim sweater or wear a T-shirt with a Bomber jacket for a better look. I wanted to keep the look very simple and casual and that being the reason, I didn’t add a lot of accessories. I just wore a rose gold bangle that has a quote written on it (You’re my Sun, my moon and all my stars) and that adds a little color and shine to the outfit.

You have to know how to accessorize your outfits in winters because some girls overdo the whole thing when they decide to carry a long scarf with a neck piece, a cap, a watch and then, few bracelets. Now, that’s too much fashion to handle and also, over-dressing. Make sure you don’t do that.

You can also leave one side of the dungaree undone or unbuttoned. That way you won’t have to worry about tucking the sweater inside and looking like you’ve gained extra pounds this holiday season. 😛

For footwear, I wore my white casual shoes that go with absolutely anything in my wardrobe and add that “sporty” touch to the look. This is one of my looks that you can wear to college or any casual outing. The outfit details are mentioned below.

A Retro Story

Hello, all!

Here I am with the article that I have been postponing for so long but not anymore! So, this green top that I had bought from Sarojini Nagar two years ago, was lying under the heap of my clothes and I had never worn it much because it didn’t go well with an of the bottom wear I had back then. However, when I recently put it on, I loved how to colour of the top looked so lively and how well it looked. I even worn it to college and got a lot of compliments which I wasn’t expecting. 😛 These knot-tops were not in fashion at the time when I had bought it but now they surely are. Anyway, so the reason why I decided to publish this post was because of this outfit’s retro vibe. The entire outfit is retro. Hence, the name of the article.

I do hope you like the outfit. All the looks that I create on my blog are affordable and easy to recreate and so is this one. It’s very easy to find a knot crop top and a flared jeans. As far as the accessories go, if you like any of them from my blog posts, feel free to drop me a message on the Spoyl App. All my collection is available there under the username Sale sale sale and I can make stuff available for you if it’s out of stock. Other than that, I hope the details are helpful enough. You can recreate these outfits using your own personal style of course because your personal touch is what makes your outfits unique. 🙂

So, let’s see how the outfit looks.

4 Last Minute Indo-Western Diwali Outfits

Hello girls!

I was so busy planning for some amazing blog posts (that I’ll be posting later) and occupied with my college work that I had completely forgotten to do a Diwali blog post. So, I went through my wardrobe and found this really elegant lehenga of my mom that she had bought after her marriage and then, decided to use that for creating different looks. This is a very old lehenga and I have used all that there is in a lehenga to create three unique Indo-Western looks for the last minute ladies and yes, since the shoot was next day, these outfits are actually last minute. I have also used an ethnic long skirt that was lying there in my wardrobe for years and created a bohemian look for those ladies who do not have any lehenga to create a last minute outfit.

Let’s have a look at the outfits:

Look 1: Wear any long skirt with a blazer & create a bohemian look

I don’t wear long skirts a lot. I found it difficult to even pair this skirt up with a top because I’m not into tank tops and that’s what usually girls wear skirts with. A tank top or tee, a scarf that goes with the skirt and flats. But when you are dressing up for some festival, you dress up properly and you DRESS UP! That being the reason why I added a blazer in this look and the chunky bohemian and Turkish jewelry. You should definitely go for a heavy statement necklace if you want to recreate this look and create your own last minute Indo-western Diwali outfit. 😉

01-original0302-straight040508.png07.png

Outfit Details:

  • Bohemian coin necklace from amazon.in
  • Printed Long Skirt
  • Black Blazer by Only
  • Plain Silver bangles bought for Rs 100 from Sarojini Nagar, Delhi
  • Silver Jhumkas for Rs 100 from Sarojini Nagar, Delhi
  • Vintage Turkish Rings from my collection on Spoyl App (Account: Sale Sale Sale)

Look 2: Wearing Lehenga’s dupatta as a saree

For those of you who are very much into experimenting and wearing Ind-western look, this is a last minute outfit that you can definitely go for. Using a dupatta as a saree and draping it around your jeans to make it look like a saree. The dupatta that I used belongs to my mom’s lehenga and what I absolutely love about it is the color and fabric that it is made from. Golden jewelry looks fabulous with maroon color and especially a dark colored saree. One fashion tip that you can go for is: if the dupatta you are using is short in length, you can add two dupattas and drape them around your waist like a saree. I kept the look simple and elegant and added minimal accessories. I wore flared jeans in this outfit but you can surely go for a pair of black jeggings or leggings for a better finish.

Fashion tip: Wear the same outfit with a lace bralette for a more festive look.

Outfit Details:

  • Mom’s lehenga’s dupatta
  • Wired Statement Necklace (Set) from Zylph
  • Curled leaf golden bracelet from my collection on Spoyl App (Account: Sale Sale Sale)
  • Angle wings ring from amazon.in

Look 3: Add an ethnic over coat or jacket to your Western outfit

The most effortless way to create an Indo-western look is by pairing up your ethnic jacket with a black crop top, jeans and any ethnic footwear. I don’t think I need to mention any ethnic accessories because those cute things are obviously necessary to complete the ethnic look.  In this outfit, I wore my mom’s lehenga’s jacket as an ethnic jacket and to be honest, if it didn’t have the embroidered borders, it would definitely look like a plain trench coat. 😛  But it does qualify as a great last minute Diwali outfit.

Outfit Details:

  • Golden Egyptian Statement Neckalce from Zylph
  • Mom’s lehenga’s ethnic over coat
  • Angel Wings Ring from amazon.in
  • Golden Heart Cuff Bracelet from TrendyWay.in
  • Golden Leaf Bracelet from my collection on Spoyl App (Account: Sale Sale Sale)

Look 4: Wear any lehenga’s blouse as an ethnic crop top

This is my favorite look because of this lehenga’s blouse. The embroidery on it is just beautiful and the best thing about it is the padded shoulders which give it a look of one of those military jackets that have padded shoulders as well. This is neither too much, nor too less for a Diwali outfit. If you have something like this in your or your mom’s wardrobe, then girls, you are all set for Diwali.

All To Gloat About Culottes: Look 2

Hello, girls!

So in my last article, I talked about the new trend of culottes and how you can pair them up to get a casual or formal look. In this article, I’m going to talk about pairing your culottes to make an outfit that is suitable for parties or any special occasion.

If you haven’t heard about bell sleeve tops yet, then I guess it’s time you do. Bell sleeve tops have been trending like anything these days and they not only look attractive but really classy. You can wear them as casual or party wear, depending on the print and design of the top. The one that I have chosen to wear in this outfit is from Koovs. It’s a plain pink bell sleeve crop top that has a V-neck and an elastic at the end.

I paired up my bell sleeves top with a fuchsia pink thin velvet choker and these really cute Dior inspired earrings that many celebrities have been wearing lately. A lot of Dior inspired accessories are trending nowadays like Dior inspired sunglasses in rose gold and silver, Dior inspired aviators that Kangna wore in Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Dior inspired danglers, stud earrings and a lot more. So if you’re thinking you saw some girl in the metro wearing some really unique and pretty piece of accessory and don’t know what to call it, you can try searching for Dior inspired accessories and you might just find it online. 😛  (You can also order the same from this website called Zylph).

Coming back to my look, I kept the look really simple and didn’t accessorize much because I didn’t want the accessories to take away all the attention from my overall outfit. This is one tip that you should follow when you’re dressing up for some occasion. Don’t forget to accessorize but while accessorizing, make sue that your accessories don’t take away all the attention that your outfit needs.

Also, I didn’t wear any heavy neck piece with this top because then, the V neck would have been covered and it would have looked like too much. Therefore, I decided to go with this plain choker. So, let’s see how the outfit is looking.

Modern Bohemian

Hello, Girls!

Do you not wish your work outfits were as stylish as your casual and party wear ones? Going to work wearing the same kind of boring formals can get boring. That is why I have brought to you this new “Modern Bohemian” look. With the help of a boho statement necklace and wearing a long formal white short as an overcoat jacket, I have created this look and tried to add a little bohemian look to this formal yet stylish outfit. There’s nothing wrong with wearing a rugged boyfriend jeans to your work place but only if you know how to pair it up. You can also wear a blazer with this same outfit to make it look more professional. Adding a classy watch with your formals is always a good choice.

You can choose to wear heels or wedges with this look. I went for comfort because I feel comfort should come before anything else. I hope you like the look that I have created. Outfit details are mentioned at the end of the article.
