Be so good, they can’t ignore you: Steve Martin

I think I speak for all womankind, when I confess that even the best fashionista gets stumped whilst choosing the perfect bridesmaid dress. I mean forget the usual concerns about fit and style, there are zillion other things to think of! Can we opt for ivory /white? Should it be long and flowing or short, simple and chic? Is it long enough or too long? Is it too short?

Bridesmaid dress style

When I saw this blush pink dress (in TK Maxx) I knew I have found the perfect bridesmaid dress. There is something ethereal about the blush pink colour that you simply cannot ignore. Add to it, the spiffy lace details which gives it a romantic feel.

I have kept the accessories minimal. Golden earrings, bangles, statement necklace and floral headband. I have opted for rose gold heels. Simplicity as they is the key to sophistication and this kind of style brims with both.

“Beauty begins the moment, you decide to be yourself”–Coco Chanel

Summer and denim shorts are one of the best fashion relationship you can ever find. In Britain, there was a glimmer of summer few weeks ago when it was gloriously sunny for half a day (and if you missed it then too bad). Denim shorts are perfect for summer–laidback, chic and versatile. These are just some of the ways you can describe denim shorts.

There are zillion ways to style them–wear with Breton top for a Parisian feel or with a slogan tee, bomber jacket and sporty shoes for casual evening with friends. Polish it up with a boyfriend blazer and wedges for a night or go girly (like I have done here) for a beach day trip.

How to wear denim shorts

I have paired my denim shorts with a cold shoulder top which I last wore here. Because of the coral piping on the top, I have also added coral earrings. Finally, to add a bit of zing to the outfit, I have added a scarf which I have used in a “few” different ways here. First, I used it as a bun tie (no images) then head band and then finally belt. I have sealed the look with simple flip flops and an anklet because it is a beach and less is more here.

“Clothes aren’t going to change the world; the women who wear them will”~Anne Klein

Sometimes I wonder why I bother. Every week, I am here discussing and giving you ideas what you should wear this summer/spring/winter. What are the “in”colours and the various ways to pair the autumn-winter state–boots. Honestly, it is exhausting! My mind, however creative, sometimes has no idea how to describe a dress for the zillionth time. And then I wonder, if it really matters in the larger scheme of things–children still dying for hunger and poverty, women denied equal rights and Brexit. Ofcourse it does not.

However, I convince myself if something as simple as a dress and boots can bring some realm of happiness in the daily grind of life then why not? So, whether you hate it or love it I am here. Boots are esentially a winter thing but the British weather being more temperamental than a woman; it is here to stay even in summers (if you want call it that!)

The trick to making an ankle boot work with a dress in summer is to create a gap (no this is not some imaginative made-up rule by me). Pair with a midi and bare calves or a mini with opaque/sheer tights (if you wish, I had to here as it was just too windy) or with a maxi that ends just on your ankles.

If you ask me, the ankle boots with dress style is perhaps just the summer option you need when sunshine is still…..a bit weak.

Summer is finally here (apparently) and here I will be showing you (once again) what are the trends to try so that you are fashionnably ahead. I recently attended the fashion fix event at Broadstreet Mall (Reading, UK) which showcased a great show about affordable fashion for all age and gender groups.

Prints, Prints and More Prints:

Prints (unsurprisingly) are going to big season. If you know me, you would know that I am already sold. There is nothing like a vibrant, graphic and colourful print that can up the ante of any look without much effort. Pair with single colours for added oomph (and also looking like a Christmas tree is not a great look). Not a fan? Pair printed accessories like a scarf or bag with neutrals.

If you want to know how to pair clashing prints, then check this post out.

Colours:

Orange is definitely the new black (yes even for men) don’t be shy with colours go all out and pair it as you want. For women, pink is the hue of the season thanks to Duchess of Cambridge and her Indian sojourn (remember, the pink dress which practically broke the fashion internet?). I must admit I am particularly pleased with this trend.

Shoulder-baring

fashion trends for Summer 2016

Shoulders are apparently the errogenous zone of the season (yes, it is a thing; no don’t ask me how). Cold shoulder and off shoulder clothes have already hit the high street and is here to stay. I like it very much–it is chic in a nonchalant way as well as effortless without much skin show.

And what did I wear?

A cold shoulder top (trust me I had no idea) with ripped jeans and coral accessories.

I loathe narcissism, but I approve of vanity–Diana Vreeland

The thing about the world of fashion and style is that it revolves around beautiful clothes. But as ironical as it may sound, sometimes we get so caught up with trends that we forget the simple pleasure of dressing up (or down). I feel style should not be so complicated and trends should not dictate all our sartorial choices. These days, perhaps because of my extremely busy days and the fact that I am spinning around many different plates, I do lean towards minimal and effortless looks. In the fashion dictionary, it is called norm core–the act of blending in rather than standing out.

It is about rejecting the razmatazz, refusing to be a peacock and instead being an every day pigeon. An unfussy look of t-shirt, jeans and trainers is exactly that–unfussy but take a leaf from late Steve Jobs who probably nailed the look even before it entered the fashion echleons.

If you know me, you know I am all about personalising each look because otherwise where’s the fun and I done exactly that here. I have paired my striped tee with a ripped jeans. I have used  floral scarf and a candy colour satchel to add a dash of colour to this look. For footwear, instead of trainers I have opted for ankle boots. This look is edgy, chic yet feminine. It is fun and yet functional–the new fashion cool.
