Not upgrading your wardrobe with the present-day trends is like sticking yourself in a bad relationship. It’s like keeping the cadaver of your dead cat, even when you know it’s dead af. The only wise decision is to move on, bury the remains & accept the inevitable change.
If you’re ever confused between white & black, choose blue. Pasta and risotto, order a lasagna. Coke & Pepsi, have a thumbs up. Doesn’t make sense? Well my point here is that sometimes wild choices make all the difference. Also timing plays an essential role, if you aren’t up to date, chances are that you’re gonna lose the game.
Don’t worry! I have your back at least in making you aware of what’s trending in fashion? From NY Fashion Week to Indian Fashion Week, I’ve got you all covered.
The Velvet Vogue:
Velvet is making a huge comeback & I can not wait to fill up my wardrobe with this enchanting fabric.
From jumpsuits to tailored jackets, velvet & its allys like silk is booming everywhere these days. And why not? It looks so slinky, slutry & rich. I had plenty of ideas in my mind on how to add more quirkiness to plain velvet apparels & giving them an edge.
All black everything. (well mostly everything) Have a look at this black velvet hoodie from H&M.
Try & resist yourself but tell me honestly if you haven’t fallen in love with it already.
Benefits of having this stunning piece of clothing is that it saves you from the unpredictable weather because it’s not fully warm but just enough to give you that feeling of warm cuddles.

The time has come when I present the main attraction of this whole look which is indeed sorcerous. The black faux leather trousers. Attention seeking? Yes. Body fitted? Yes. And fascinating as fuck? Hell Yes. There’s no chance that people won’t turn around in the club to have a look at your alluring attire.
And it’s thriving this season, thanks to Joanne (Lady Gaga) for wearing that kickass underboobs flashing outfit on this year’s Grammy Awards, showing off her amazing figure & choking the ungrateful body shamers.
Name one fashion geek who isn’t fond of faux fur, I’ll wait. I mean since the first episode of Scream Queens( Thriller-Comedy T.V Series) Most of Chanel’s outfits are made out of faux fur. TMI? okay. Everyone from Bebe Rexha to our highly adored rapper/singer Maclemore
