Athleisure – The Trend that’s becoming a Lifestyle

It is a fact that while we all want to be fashionable and stylish, there’s no denying that if it comes effortlessly and takes less time than it usually would, we are going to grab it with both hands, albeit languorously. 

Athleisure – athletic and leisure. The terms are completely on different ends of the spectrum but that’s the beauty of this trend. Continue reading “Athleisure – The Trend that’s becoming a Lifestyle”

Retro Blues – The Off Shoulder Maxi Dress

You know, I am one of those people who is really glad to live in a city like Mumbai, where the weather is tropical pretty much all year round. I have no problems whatsoever dealing with hot weather, in fact I quite love it. That is partly because I can wear summery dresses any time I want. You can probably tell by now that I am currently obsessing over off-shoulder silhouettes. Here are a few pictures in a blue bardot/off-shoulder maxi dress, which my sweet brother clicked during Rakhi. This dress is probably sold out now but here are a few similar ones. Happy shopping!

My outfit details:

Bardot Maxi Dress – Femella  | Sunglasses – Koovs | Necklace – Candidly Couture

I decided to go with an elegant, retro inspired look with the braid and the oversized sunglasses, to let the dress have it’s own moment.

3 Trends You Need to Know for Spring/Summer 2016

spring summer 2016 trends

One quarter of the year is gone and I feel like it had just begun! Did I just blink and miss it? Crazy! Just yesterday it was winter and now we are suddenly heading straight into summer like a boulder rolling downhill! Ah but I like summer. Summer fashion is fun, quirky, colorful and young.
While summer staples like whites, floral and pastels hardly ever go out of style, here’s a look at some off-the-wall and yet very wearable trends that you could try this year.

Romantic Maxi Dresses

We predicted way back in October, looking at the fashion week trends, that the 70s is going to be huge in spring summer 2016 and it is. A maxi dress, whether printed or solid color, is an easy thing to style. Throw on a pair of metallic flats and a crossbody bag to complete the look. Go embrace your inner flower child!

Floral gone wild

Speaking of flowers, floral will always be a trend for spring summer but this time, the flowers have gone bolder! Think more graphic, more eccentric.

The Slip Dress

Remember Carrie’s naked dress from Sex and The City?

One look at SS 2016 runway reveals that the slip dress is going to be the thing for 2016. 2015 saw a complete transformation of the slip dress from a boudoir piece to a chic staple. The slip dress is reminiscent of the 90s when Kate Moss made a strong case for it every now and then while looking fabulous in it. Today, the slip dress has made a comeback but I have to say it’s a tricky trend to carry. However, if you are feeling adventurous enough, pair one with a boyfriend blazer and heels and rock the dress! I am going to definitely try, as well. A black slip dress for parties is on my shopping list!

Until next time,

Stay stylish.
