spring summer 2014 trends : part II

COOL WHITES – It is crisp, bold (without being too in -your- face ) and perfect for summer. this is a minimalistic approach to fashion and can be tricky to pull off but not entirely difficult…here are certain ways to pull off this trend.
pure minimalism : go for an all- white look breaking it up with different shades of whites( ivory, cream, snow and baby powder) or similar color stories such as beige and nudes. blending in of these tones will avoid your ensemble from looking completely washed out.Image
POP IT UP WITH COLORS – this one is my personal favorite….use your white piece as the base of your canvas and throw on your pops of color. break down the monotony with a single color schemeImage
or go all out n about with a splash of colors..
JUNK JEWELLERY- Pile on your junk jewellery to give a cool boho- chic vibe.
TEXTURES AND SURFACE DETAILS – use white fabrics in contrasting textures and cut works to cut down the plainness ( for the lack of a better word ) of an all- white ensemble. Shop for pieces with cut-work/ appliques or cut-outs for an edgy look.
Do you guys have any other ideas on how to wear this summery trend??pls give in your comments.

how to do a desi-boho look

change it up:
change it up: 
instead of going by the obvious route..try to change it up . Try pairing your kurtas/tunics with voluminous maxi skirts or palazzos/ shararras/ patiala salwars instead of the everyday leggings or salwars.pair your saree with a shirt instead of your blouse (or experiment with your blouse itself)
acceseroize: don’t shy away from accesorizing your look ever. your accesories make or break a look. incorporate  jhumks or jhoolas into your look. antique silver jewelry or glass bangles will also give you a quirky/ desi-boho look.  
desi roots
desi roots: while putting your look together try to add certain desi elements into it. raid your mother’s wardrobe for indian textiles and embroideries (bandhanis, phulkaris etc.)  instead of your go-to everydaysandals complete your look with kohlapuris or punjabi jhootis.

FLORAL – This trend needs no introduction..One can never get enough of floral. Be it dark, 3D or printed its all about flowers this season…here, i will jotting down ways to incorporate the trend in your wardrobe this season: 
  • florals+ lace – Bring in the blossoms with some lace for the flown blown effect.Image
  • Denim – to give your look a youthful, carefree spin, pair your ladylike blooms with your favorite blues.Image

trend alert : normcore

fashion movement or massive in- joke!!!
The latest fashion trend to hit the market is going to give nightmares to all the fashionistas!!! this trend is all about not following the trends at all. all you have to do is dress so blandly that you completely blend in….norm core allows you to blend into he crowd n still be in “vogue”.
personally, i in love with this trend already( cos that’s how i dress 99.9% of the times ) and wish its here to stay..
So, whats your take on this!!!
