Look Book: Jaipur

Most of you already know that I traveled to Jaipur (by Instagram and Facebook post) on my birthday. This blog is on the looks that I have created in Jaipur. Like always I have kept few basics which can be mix and matched to bring out multiple variations. As Jaipur is comparatively hotter than Delhi so I have kept very light woolens and light color clothes.  A small tip here: always plan your look beforehand; it saves so much time and space. I have created five looks here and featured this look book. So, without wasting any time let’s start with my 1st look.

Look No. 1:

Because it was hot during the day time so I decided to wear this chikan with dark blue denim. To pep up this look I am carrying this orange sling bag and metallic sandals. For jewelry, I am wearing my watch, silver earrings and bangles (which I bought from Jaipur). This look is really simple to create and it lets you breathe at this temperature while being classy.jaipur ethnic lookpink column jaipurhawa mahal jaipurhawa mahal jaipurDenim: Levi’s / Kurta: Melange / Sling Bag: Caprese / Footwear: Lifestyle / Shades : Forever21 / Jewellery : Earrings (CP) and Bangles (Jaipur).

Look No. 2:

We decided to go out in the evening and to protect from chills, I wore denim jacket over white top. This one is pretty basic and muted. I broke the monotony using bright lipstick to which these images are not doing justice. Carried my stuff in the brown tote and wore same jewelry and watch.casual outfitTop: H&M / Denim: Levi’s / Denim Jacket: Top Shop / Footwear: Bata / Tote Bag : Allen Solly / Jewellery : Watch (Titan) and Earring (Pantaloons)

Look No. 3:

We decided to cover 2 – 3 forts in a day so I thought of going for comfort footwear. I kept this entire look keeping my sports shoes in mind. I opted for plaid shirt and jeans and carried denim jacket to protect from chilly wind.casual look jaipurcasual look jaipurWhite Shirt: H&M / Denim: Levi’s / Denim Jacket: Top Shop / Footwear: Puma / Shades: Forever21

This one is of birthday where I went out for dinner with my friends. After walking a lot around the forts I was tired and I didn’t take any efforts towards this one. Here’s the complete minimal look of mine. I have also paired this spaghetti top with black palazzo in my Lansdowne look-book.birthday outfitWhite Spaghetti Top: Top Shop / Denim: Levi’s / Black Blazer: Forever21 / Footwear: Westside / Sling Bag: Caprese / Jewellery: Watch (titan) and Earring (Big Bazaar)

Go Indo-Western for Cocktail Party

While working on an indo-western fusion look-book, I created one look which can be worn to a cocktail party. Whenever I receive an invitation for a cocktail party, I straightaway explore my wardrobe and get nothing to wear. I guess every girl keep on questioning, “what and how to dress for a cocktail party”. This season try to go for indo-western look for cocktail parties.

Cocktail parties call for a casual gathering where you get to eat, drink and dance more. So always choose a light fabric in which you can comfortably dance. Well this time, I picked up pieces from my wardrobe and thought to create a trendy look for the cocktail party and it does turn out so well. I picked up a heavy dupatta and paired it with my black denim and 3/4th sleeves black top to create an indo-western look.  check here to see what I wore to friend’s engagement.

To my black outfit, I draped this dupatta like a saree. Dupatta added a desi touch to my western outfit thus making it indo-western. Always pick the longer one as you have to create a plate or 2 in the front and longer pallu will look good.

Hairstyle:

I created a side-bun by twisting my hair and tucking them using u-pins.

Make-up:

I used Maybelline Fit me shade 322 on the face and did contouring using Kiss-beauty palette. I did rose-gold look on the eyes, filled up inner are with golden shade and outer with red and blended them perfectly. Used Maybelline eye -liner and for lips I choose NYX Full throttle

Jewelry:

I opted for kundan earrings and bangles. Well, you can go for danglers or you can either pick a trendy neck piece depending on your face shape.

Carry a matching clutch which compliments your outfit and go for heels depending on the occasion and time. I prefer to go for flats as I had a knee surgery in the past and I am still not allowed to wear that.

Hope you enjoyed this look!

 

Top Five Trends in Fusion Wear

The mixing and matching trend have taken over the fashion industry, it is no more about muted colors or patterns in accordance. And it’s just not about colors, designers are breaking the set rules of draping, styling, and matching, and it seems the era of fusing traditional with western wear has taken over the fashion industry! We take you through the hottest of the trends – fusion wear, taking over the fashion industry.

 1. Not So Basic Kurtas:

The good old kurtas have been fused with some great styles and patterns, pairing them with a contrasting colored pair of leggings or pajamas were good old ways. Now pair your Kurtis with dhotis, or else add layers to a straight kurta with a long skirt. It is sure to add more dimension and edge to your look.
Kurtas matched with trousers and palazzos are in vogue and gives a chic appeal, also you don’t compromise your comfort. I have created a fusion, where you can also wear your kurta as a dress and with appropriate accessories you can rock it!

  1. Drape it That Way:

Saree draping is an art and the kind of different draping ways fashion industry has seen over the period is amazing. One such quirky way has been trending these days, the dhoti style.

And why to limit it just to sarees, your good old scarves and stoles are can also be draped like saree to add an edgy appeal to your look. Another fusion look I created by draping a heavy dupatta as saree over black jeans. A post for this look will be up on the blog soon!

3. Skirt Effect:

Skirts have taken a plunge from wearing it just the old way to styling it with a different bodice. The trending one is with pretty crop tops, jackets, and kurtas.

Full-length skirt with a crop top is a trendy and comfortable affair, nothing too loud and nothing too low, just sheer vogue in comfort! Here I have teamed up palazzos with a tank top, added junk jewelry and carried an ethnic clutch.

4. Jacket Up!

Jackets over your kurta, spaghetti top, tank top or blouses they are just everywhere. Not just the leather or denim ones but of all. The bright and embellished jackets can be best paired with muted colored dresses; the good old leather and denim jackets can also be layered over your regular outfits.

5. Traditionally Dressed!

So, when we say traditionally dressed it doesn’t mean all that heavy dose of lehenga-chunni but the Anarkali Dresses, as they are popularly called as. Beautiful long dresses with ample lot of embellishment and work that sets you apart from the regular crowd.
