Clearly, I don’t think so because why wait to start spreading happiness??

This Christmas season, I definitely cannot get enough of these bright Christmas beauties that fully encapsulates the season’s joyous spirit. I am hooked, are you?

Fall Colours

Fall Colours

As much as I love the novelty of Fall–the crisp autumn leaves fallen on ground, the nip in the air and sunlight playing hide and seek. I dislike the sudden burst of cold biting my senses and the general greyness. The best way to inject some colour and break this greyness? Bright coloured trousers and a statement bag that can double up as a conversation starter.

Here, I’ve paired coral trousers with a simple striped tee. I’ve used a scarf and sun glasses for it was one of those brilliant sunny, fall day. Finally, there’s the star of the show–the bright, bold, fun lizard bag by Christopher Raeburn for Amex UK—a big highlight at this year’s LFW.

A fun bag like this can up the ante on any outfit, don’t you think? So, tell me how do you stay cool and hot in autumn?

And would you dare to don a bold, uber-cool bag like this?

They say human beings have both masculine and feminine qualities in them. In fashion, nothing reflects this universal truth than the quintessential androgyny look. Androgyny and fashion has been doing the rounds for decades. In fact, Hollywood icon Katherine Hepburn was an early pioneer of this look and appeared frequently in the early 1900’s wearing buttoned down shirts and trousers; the last couple of catwalks have proved that this look is not going to die anytime soon. Boyfriend jeans are an easy way to incorporate this look and I am told it is a style darling favoured by women from all walks of life.

But I have always looked at Boyfriend Jeans with trepidation feeling it will not compliment my curves. I thought I will pass on this style and just enjoy seeing other girls prattle around their “masculine” side. However, in the spirit of experimenting I tried on this uber-cool number and BOY am I hooked?

Nothing excites more than a versatile piece of garment and boyfriend jeans are exactly that. You can dress up or dress down and come up with thousand ways to wear this style.

Look 1: Casual Chic

Here, I’ve paired my jeans with a comfy Tee and leather sandals to keep it casual. A big satchel with polka dots brings an element of playfulness. I’ve added some “girly” accessories like bangles, dangling earrings and a large cocktail ring for some feminine touch.

Look 2: Femme Fatale.

Here, it is all about channelising your inner goddess and yet keeping the focus on the boy friend jeans. I love the white on white look and this is my own rendition to this trend. A white casual blazer should be a wardrobe essential; it screams of understated sophistication. Throw in some accessories and shoes in eye popping colours like coral and you will feel every bit like a Femme Fatale.

Of the two, my favourite is definitely the second look but I can totally see myself pulling the first one when I’ve to run to do errands or simply do some mall-walking.

And to all the girls who think their curves will not let them try this look. Pish-Posh. If you have it rock it 😉
