Ever since Keira Knightley recycled her wedding dress; recycling has become a hot word in fashion (or has it?). Recycling or not, I love experimenting and trying out new things. So, here I am trying to create a winter layer look with my summer and fall pieces.

Winter Layers

Your summer dress  can  be turned into a winter ensemble with some clever layering.

Winter layers

Dress: Asos (worn here), Boucle Jacket: Next (old), coat: Lakeland (worn here), gloves: from Amsterdam, Scarf: H&M (old), Hat: TKMaxx, Boots: Timberland (worn here).

I’ve added Boucle jacket, suede coat, my trusty boots and must-have scarf , hat and gloves to be pleasantly warm after all my winter mantra is: keep calm and stay warm 😉

I don’t do fashion, I am fashion. 

I started the style section on this blog after much trepidation. As a style lover, I’ve often thought that fashion can be a bit too discriminatory. We are often misled to believe that you need to be certain size, of certain ethnicity and have loads of cash to spare to enjoy fashion and style, I beg to differ. For me style is also like an art form, you pick up pieces from a plethora of things to create something. Starting this blog has also taught me that it is not so easy to talk style week after week because there are only so many ways to describe clothes. And why do I have so many things going on this in this blog? Because fashion has to do with ideas and I like to make it my own. On that happy note, here’s my top 13 looks of 2013.

1. Monochrome with a dash of colour:  Stripes with a dash of colour.

2. Fall Colours: To break the bleakness of fall.

3. Colour riot:  Because I love colours.

4. Drama Queen: The quintessential LBD for the drama queen.

5. London Fashion Week: Covering the LFW for the first time.

6: Girl meets Boy: Androgynous Cool.

7. Off-Duty: Casual Chic.

8. Coral Crushing: We all need a bright summer dress.

9. Style Expedition: For traveling in style.

10: Being Goddess: For my inner and outer Goddess.

11. Tartantastic: Gripped by the Tartan fever.

12: The Jumpsuit:  A wardrobe staple.

13. The ever elegant Saree: Because one must never forget one’s roots.

I think bidding adieu to an exciting year should be done in style (like everything else). For this New Year’s Eve I am opting for a floor length dress that’s simple, glamorous yet roomy enough to shimmy the night away.

Maxi dress style

This year has been quite exciting for me. I achieved a lot and lost some and I cannot wait for the next year. How do I like to spend my 31 st Dec? With my loved ones and friends amidst great conversations, music and food, dancing the night away. How do you like to spend your last day of the year?

Maxi dress style

Here, I’ve opted for a Navy maxi dress with power shoulders and teamed up with simple accessories save for a pair of statement earrings. Yes, comfort is a big factor because I don’t like anything to keep me away from the dance floor ;).
