Workwear: 2 New Summer Office Looks You Can Pull Off In Less Than A Minute

They’re morning people & then they’re nocturnal asses like you & me. Hello! Life’s a mess for millennials & has its own ways to kick them hard in the guts, okay. Just when you think you’re done waking up early every morning after school/college, office’s ready to knock you up (or else you end up being unemployed, living on your dad’s mercy, which is worse. Anyway.) No matter how much we despise, we all need those pay checks to live by the weekend, don’t we? Today, I won’t promise to make things go trouble-free but I’d surely help you to get through by making them a little uncomplicated.

I partnered with Myntra & created these 2 new summer looks for those early morning office meetings & evening night-outs straight from your work place, which you can easily pull off with least efforts.

IMG_2505_Facetune_15-06-2018-22-31-26

Honestly, these are the simplest looks I’ve ever assembled & the most basic I’ve EVER been. Nevertheless, quite happy with end results. See for yourself:

Look 1:

That-Summer-Bloom

If you’re lucky & have a work culture which allows you to go a little extra (just a little) then this one’s for you. Floral, pastels, whites & blues is all you need to keep it chic & suave this summer or any summer tbh because we all know there’s nothing ICONIC about them as literally everyone connects to these prints & colours in Spring-summer & hence enabling you to play safe. Not so on-the-face yet so out there.

IMG_2504_Facetune_15-06-2018-22-30-50

Top- A white piece of ease with polo neck & short sleeves that you can pair up with a relaxed-fit chinos & slip on tennis shoes or sneakers. You can do so many permutations & combinations with this piece for e.g. these can easily be worn over a classic denim with white sneakers. Never ending possibilities, you see!

IMG_2506_Facetune_15-06-2018-22-31-33

Price- Rs. 1399. Get 49% off on Myntra. Click here to buy. Brand- John Players

Bottom- A pastel blue, mid rise, top-of-the-line, regular fit trousers with a button closure & 4 pockets accessorised with an oversized belt giving a little 80s 90s retro hipster feels to the whole look. Another attire you can definitely try with these can be with a nicely tucked plain white or a black shirt.

IMG_2507_Facetune_15-06-2018-22-32-39

Price- Rs. 2499. Get 60% off. Click here to buy. Brand- Invictus

Shoes- A pair of cushioned footbed, round-toe, white & blue printed slip on sneakers with rubber texture & pattern details outside, blending in, on fleek. The problem with your regular pair of office shoes is that you can’t really wear them when you’ve got to attend an evening get together/party straight after office with no time to go back home & change. Hence these (or other solid coloured) beauts should definitely be a part of your shoe rack!

IMG_2513_Facetune_15-06-2018-22-39-51

Look 2:

White-down-under

A more effortless, straightforward & quickly manageable office look you can carry out on all those lazy Tuesdays. Well, not necessarily the way I have kept my buttons opened but yeah you get it! This season I’m all about neutral shades of beige, brown, ivory, grey etc. Continue to embrace my yeezy instincts, the same aesthetics you’ll even feel on my Insta feeds.

IMG_2510_Facetune_15-06-2018-22-36-20

 

Top- A thin striped, mandarin collar, antimicrobial, beige linen shirt with long roll up sleeves, curved hem & a full button placket, perfect for those sweaty afternoon meetings. Later at night while going out for drinks with the gang you can put on a lightweight bomber jacket & possibly a kickass pair of boots.

IMG_2511_Facetune_15-06-2018-22-38-29

 

Price: Rs. 1399. Get 50% off. Click here to buy. Brand- Ether

Bottom- We’ve come to a decision you guys! A white trouser (or sneakers) is no more a FAD! This slim fit, angle length, stretchable white denim is not going to obsolete, at least for the next few seasons. An year-round wear! & do I really have to mention in how many different ways you can rock this? (refer previous blog posts)

The Wedding Collection ’17 – Season Special

This is a shoutout to all the overly dressed, emotional, high strung & hyper aunties, always up for an interrogation/ rapid fire round whenever they bump into us. “Beta shaadi ho gayi aapke? ” “Acha salary kitne hai?” & to all the brainsick, maniacal uncles intoxicated with alcohol, constantly comparing you with their sons but too drunk to notice that their pants are slowly sliding down. Haha yes! The wedding season has barged in & I’m talking about a big fat punjabi wedding where everybody just loves to create a scene. Disputes emerging everywhere, literally from paneer tikka to ‘Dulhan ka fancy lehga‘.

IMG_5577_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-41-28

Hello drunkards! How have you been? Hope y’all having fun unlike this boy who has been sucked off to the last drop by his new city life. Who said college is fun? Ugh! Anyway! It’s that time of the year again when girls cut down on calories & boys do extra flexing, to look extraaa at their friend’s or cousin’s wedding, tantalising everyone around them!

IMG_5572_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-39-42

 

And so if you’re planning to attend a wedding this year, you just can’t afford to skip reading this story. Period. (YES! READ THE FUCK UP, DON’T YOU DARE SCROLL DOWN FOR PICTURES)

IMG_5573_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-39-59

As we grow up, we tend to hate going to these mocked up ceremonies created by our heteronormative society but hey! At the same time we can’t say no to our mum either, asking us to accompany & tag along with her. Hence, it’s better if you go, you bring out the A game.

Indian Wedding Season 2017Hottest New Trends

  1. Colors are making a comeback!– Yay! Enough with all the minimalism, pastel & all-white weddings.
  2. Technology stepping in– You won’t believe the other day I spent 4 hours watching a live-stream wedding on Instagram. Now if that’s not futuristic, I don’t know what is.
  3. Bride with Aviators & sneakers– Umm. Okay!! Quickly moving on…
  4. Day time weddings– Even in Delhi, Yes. Why? I. You can do so much more with the décor. II. Budget booster! You save money on booking the venue.
  5. E- invites, destination wedding venues, pre wedding shoots & more.

Wedding AttireWhether to Buy or Rent?

Decisions, decisions! You can either own it or lease it. The former might give you short term satisfaction but would definitely cost an arm & a leg, the latter won’t. My tip is: Contemplate & then make your move. Either way, it depends on you. Come to a decision after considering all the factors such as your budget, purpose, season etc.

IMG_5576_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-41-04

There are plenty of amazing platforms available online if you plan to rent your outfit.

Pros: You don’t have to struggle much to find out the right garment, easy delivery system, multiple options, haute couture, designer wear under your budget.

Cons: Fittings (though they’re options available to fix it according to your size), Internet can be unreliable at times but so can be your favourite tailor.

IMG_5578_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-41-50

 

About the look:

 

IMG_5574_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-40-12

This navy blue dupion silk sherwani is definitely an exemplary choice throwing all the newly wed vibes. Elaborated heavily with all-over golden jaal embroidery and murky buttons. It’s paired up with golden dupion silk chudidar which can be worn as another outfit if you wish to reduce the burden of heavy layers.

How to make the right choice while renting out?

There’s always an option to return back, so chill! Take a deep breath & follow these simple rules:

  1. Quality is non-negotiable: Make sure the fabric doesn’t look tawdry & tacky.
  2. Do not procrastinate: Start scrolling though the web so that you have time to fix things up, even in the worst case scenarios.
  3. Going over the board: Yes, you may! Experiment & explore, it’s a fucking wedding after all.
  4. Wedding type: Day or night, indoor or outdoor, location, etc. Keeping all these things in mind. You won’t want to look like a shiny furry ball in the day time or wear something dull & unilluminating at night, unless that’s your ‘thang’. No, please! Try not to do that.

IMG_5579_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-42-11

Kurta & chudidar: Perfect for the never ending, add on occasions such as Mehndi, Sangeet & so many more.

Trend ’17- How To Mix Clothes of Different Fabrics Like A Pro?| High Shine & Thirst Traps With Denim

IMG_1667

You know that moment when you’re mad but you really don’t know why? Because
your feelings are so fucking blended. Everything’s jumbled up, even your emotions. No matter how hard you try to suppress, it vents out sooner or later. And the longer the suppression, the worse is the mental breakdown. I feel our minds are like unbreakable balloons & when they get filled up, more than their capacity, they explode. Getting me? No. Okay. All I’m trying to say Read More

Squishy Sweaters- Office Couture.

Let’s talk about office scenarios. Okay tell me about your dream job? A job which doesn’t suck the life outta you but just enough to buy you the newly launched iPhone every year. Not much but just enough to pay off your rent, mobile bills, fancy food, day drinking booze & Starbucks. Of course. And not forgetting your weekend shopping spree. Right? Right. But oh boy! for that sass you gotta werk that slothful ass off. And just as you, every other millennial dreams of the same luxuries.

img_0745

I’m gonna get little personal & tell you some awkward yet hilarious moments of my intern life. For almost 2 years I did this internship where either I was over dressed on most of the days, looking dapper than the boss (WHICH DIDN’T TURN OUT TO BE A GOOD THING, OBVIOUSLY.) or I looked like a dead hungover corpse if I had partied the night before. Nothing in between. Ugh. Haha but yet I survived somehow & managed to get through the shiz & completed it. *pats on the back*

img_0234

 

So if you’re already working in an office or you have start a new job, this article is for you. Today I’m telling you the minimalistic ways to pair up your everyday sweaters, cardigans with the right kind of accessories.

img_0759

As a kid I hated wearing sweaters. I used to find it so boring, just to wear plain basic coloured knitted sweater. No matter how warm they were, keeping me away from the cold. As I grew up, I found out various ways of styling them. Yes! So many different yet classy ways to rock a sweater.

“I can’t come straight to the pub bruh! I’m in the office, I haven’t even dressed properly” won’t ever be your excuse to miss out the weekday party shenanigans.

Oversized sweaters

If you’d closely follow the trend you’d know how overwhelming the oversized bombers & sweaters are this season.

 

img_0749

From Ariana Grande to Kylie Jenner to Troye Sivan. Everyone’s Instagram is booming with oversized outfits. Not to mention how adorably comfortable they are. 1st style: This mountain gray round neck, full sleeves sweater made with ultra soft material is an irresistible winter wear.

Sweater: H&M

To make it look suave, I’ve paired it up with my favourite white linen trousers & blue brogues.

Related Accessories: The brown faux leather bagpack which is capable of carrying literally everything, from my books to laptop. Every damn thing.

img_0722

I’m a motherfucking starboy. And if you also wanna do that little extra effort to slay the day, just like me? Put the stars up.

img_0069

Sunglasses– Marc Jacobs

And if your work culture is as cool as the weather outside, put your favourite nail paint on & step up the game. Not yet possible in India? Well trying to bring the change won’t hurt anyone. Yeah?

optimized-dsc_4710

Linen Trousers: Zara

2nd style:

Don’t feeling like wearing white? Because chances are it’s gonna get dirty when you work for the whole day. Don’t worry I’ve got this sorted. Wear a dark coloured trouser or chinos whatever goes perfectly with your mushy sweater.

Possibly white sneakers, just to give the complete touch to the whole outfit. ZARA

LOOK 2

Style 1: My favourite choice for this winter, round neckline, ribbed trim knitted sweater. Look how exquisite this beaut looks. Wearing sweaters was never been so delightful before.

img_0439

 

For a causal day look & if you feel comfortable in your everyday jeans. I’ve worn this with a black Levi’s denim.

Related accessories: The happy socks are the happiest. I’ve the new passion for collecting & wearing adorable socks like these. Aren’t these the prettiest? Omg! Please just don’t vanish away like all other good things in my life.

Courtesy: HappySocks

img_0723

Style 2: Pairing it with the Navy blue linen trousers for that perfect office day. Again it depends what are you comfortable wearing? For some people it’s their favourite denims. For others it can be their old trousers.

Pants: M&S

Whatever suits you because you have to spend the whole day at the office wearing the same piece of clothing.

dsc_4954

Brogues: Damn! Those curves. I remember going completely cuckoo when I saw them online for the first time. This amazing piece of art is astonishing & very much affordable too. KOOVS

img_0760

Sweater: H&M

That’s all I have for this week. Feel free to write down your opinion about the looks in the comment section below.

Come again- Whips, cuffs & suspenders (2/2)

Buy branded clothes, strike a pose, use the hashtag #fashionblogger and there you go. Congratulations you’re a blogger. HELL to the FUCKIN’ NO. Buy new clothes, you lose perspective. As a student, I get a certain amount of pocket money which I’ve to utilize for everything including my extravaganza expenses. And like each one of you, I find myself completely broke at the end of the month.
optimized-img_1605
If you think I wear new clothes every week on my blog posts, good for me but you haven’t been paying attention. I’m amused to find different ways to re-use the same piece of clothing, get creative & bring out something distinctive & quirky. After all these years of living alone & managing my routine in this city, I’ve somehow learnt to balance things. No doubt, I fuck up every time I see something I believe is only made for me, a t-shirt or a pair of stunning shoes.
And obviously I’m hopelessly single & have no one who would buy me all things I fantasize. haha.
No worries, let’s take an oath to work towards it & get all the sassy stuff which we dream of.
img_2965
My emphasis has always been on affordable fashion. Clothes which people like you & me can actually pay for. Oh & even the nominal amount of money I get though my assignments, I splash it out on NSS.
This week’s outfit is the second instalment to my previous post, in case you did not know.

qeld0326


The 2nd look. More causal , less messy & can be easily pulled off with your favourite coloured t shirt & your same old amazing pair of suspenders.

espf6768

In case it isn’t obvious, I love the color blue. There comes a time in your life where you’ve to choose between black or white. I look for the blue linings in the sky. If that makes sense to you. Haha. I managed to pair this cute little blue thing with the suspenders & it totally worked out.

Shorts: Forever 21
qqya4404

Things to remember:

Don’t try too hard & play subtle with suspenders. A plain white t shirt or a shirt will completely compliment your look.
As said earlier in case of printed or multi coloured suspenders, try to balance the look with solid coloured tops.
Never mix too many patterns.
img_2968

Accessorise with your favourite set of jewellery. For me, it happens to be this blinky owl locket, snatched from the most dopest friend of mine. She’s a dude. Haha.
Also I’ve seen people considering a taboo to wear a belt with suspenders. Well that’s a myth. There’s are hundreds of ramp shows where models have rocked it. One thing you should know, fashion is subjective & has no limits.

fmdz8428
T-shirt: Forever 21

As mentioned in my previous post, I ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY HATE those white sneakers from Koovs. They’re uncomfortable, biting & a complete disgrace. I hate you Koovs for doing this to one of your valuable customer. If you’re seeing this, for heaven’s sake please improve your after sale services.
img_2794
You can look utterly disastrous wearing with the most expensive brands & you can slay even with the rug you thrifted last summer. Trashy or Flashy, it entirely depends on you.
As for now, I can only vouch for myself. I’m that kind of person who either wears the same old wrecked t shirt on every day of the week or slays with 4 different outfits in a day.
I’m unpredictable & I guess that’s what fashion is to me.
Tell me what does it mean to you? In comment section below.

Got laid parade- Monochromatic orgasm

DISCLAIMER: This article includes sex & liquor references. People who get offended by hearing the word Vagina, can kindly refrain themselves from reading ahead.

img_2833

Inspired by true events, this is a simple story of two horny homo-sapiens who wanted to fuck each other badly & ended up falling for each other.
Why am I writing this? – 1. Sex is empowering. 2. To introduce you guys to today’s outfit in a non run-of-the-mill way 3. Because I can.
img_2822

On a cold winter’s night, there was a girl standing outside a pub, waiting for her cab to arrive. Fully sloshed, wearing a little black dress with sky high heels in which she could hardly walk. Little did she know that she was about to experience something so arousing. A guy standing few feet away was gazing at her from round the corner.
Tia was too drunk to notice that everyone was staring at her including the bar bouncers & chauffeurs.
“Damn it! Bastard cancelled the trip” she yelped. After a while when she couldn’t bare to stand in those biting heels anymore, she decided to sit down on the road. The guy was observing her, mostly out of concern. After almost 20 minutes of looking at her struggling to get a ride back home, he approached her.
“Hey Tia. You alright? “ he said.

Confused, she mumbled “Do I know you? How you know my name?”

We were in the same theatre group at college, obviously you don’t recognise me, do you?” Karan said.
– “To be honest, I really don’t.” she replied
No worries, I can go away right now but I think you need to get back home, it’s 3:30 am.” He said.
– “Oh fuck! it’s 3:30? Fuck She won’t let me enter & she’d call my mother, bitch!”
Woah chill! Who?
– “The cousin I live with. Shit! I shouldn’t have had those extra shots, I’m so wrecked”
“Stop! It’s okay. Can I drop you to a friend’s place or somewhere”
– I tried calling em. No one’s in the town. Fuck my life!
“Stop cussing, you can crash into my apartment if that’s okay with you, it’s just few blocks away”
– “I..I don’t..think..that’s..”
It’s alright. Trust me.

Everything’s real & has happened except the revised names. They’re two of my great friends & that’s how they met for the first time.
I’ll carry on with the tale & simultaneously bring you guys a total different approach on how you make a fashion statement with your plain white shirt.

img_2749

Shirt: Blackberrys
There’s nothing more comforting than a perfectly tailored shirt. But for how long you gonna be stuck in your comfort zone? Today after office, get your inner dapper out & be ready to party, wearing the same shirt with suspenders.
If you have printed or checked suspenders, try pairing them with a solid coloured shirt.

img_2829
Leather Belt: Levis
How many times you were almost choked to death on an event wearing a bow tie?
Well! I give you guys a less sweaty & a more funky way to wear your favourite bow tie. As a choker.
Yes, it’ll still stick to your throat but with a little less trouble.
Try experimenting as chokers are booming this season.

Bow tie- Koovs, Sunglasses- Marc Jacobs

Continued in brief..

As soon as they reached the apartment, she was totally out blacked out. He almost had to carry her to the bed & tuck her in a quilt.
Next morning, she woke up with a bad headache & after a while she realised she’s sleeping right next to a total stranger.
In the same breath, she jumped off the bed, wrote a note with her number on it, put it on the table & vanished away.
Later at night *Screen flashes*
Text from Karan-
“I know, you know.”

-about what?

Text 2-“That I’m not the guy from your college theatre group”

– Well I knew.
Text 3-“Didn’t even know your name until I saw your college ID which had fallen off your bag.”
– Oh how smart of you? 🙂 But figured that out as well.

Text 4-“Can we meet tomorrow?
– Maybe. 🙂

First date at a coffee shop:

You look terrible” he said
– So do you Mr. Predator

Oh as if you didn’t wanna do things that actually happened that night” he winked
– I didn’t say that. she smirked.

I like you” he said.
– Cliché. But I like you too.

Do you mind if we grab a bottle of wine & try to re-live the moment?
– “That won’t be a terrible idea though.” She said

___________________________

Look at those little polka dots hovering over the black trouser. With their perfect fit, they’d go even with a simple v neck t-shirt. Totally worth the buy.

img_2747

Trousers- Forever 21

White sneakers- Koovs– Honestly, they aren’t great at all. Not comfortable & crafted with bad quality material. My love for Koovs is eternal but they need to work on their after sale services & product quality assurance.

Anyway to sum up, it’s been 6 months these two love birds having been fucking each other. Haha. Who knew that they would dating? It could have been just another sex date, overrated & readily available. Hope some of your got inspired by their short dramatic first meet story.
Also I’ve to mention that my motive is not encourage you guys to get drunk & stay over with a stranger.Hell No! Get that straight. All I want to say is that you can’t plan when you’re going to find your match. Wonderful things happen in their own time. You just gotta have patience & stars will do their magic tricks.

I’ll be featuring the second look from the series, next week. If you guys have anything you’d want to share, feel free to write in the comment section below.

Bloody Mary- How to play safe with colors?

Almost 2 month ago when I started gymming after my exams, this guy comes up to me & says ” BRO! I can helps you loos weit” Now not that I deprive of dark humour or sarcasm, I could’ve easily settled this guy but instead I just stared at him & smiled it away. But a voice inside my head was like Bitch 1. I’m beyond perfection no matter how fat or thin I look 2. I don’t need any stupid self appointed personal trainer 3. I’m fit as fuck. And that’s exactly what I want for you. A self motivating voice screaming in your head that you’re fabulous. Body love is everything. And improving yourself to make it look even better, is definitely the way to go. Also remember that the improvement should be for yourself rather than for your bf/gf. Because tbh! Aren’t we done pleasing others?

IMG_2567

And with that prologue I give you guys the 1st way to play easy with the color Red. Coloured pants can actually happen to be disastrous if not styled & paired properly.
The easiest way to slay em is to pair it with some solid color like white or black.

IMG_2578

If there’s one thing you’d ask me to eat my whole fucking life. My answer would definitely be pizza. Hands down. And you know I’m not wrong! because Pizza isn’t just food, it’s love. It’s like feeding your soul.

IMG_2358

Late night on my laptop while causally scrolling down, I found this tank on an online store & right away it was in my shopping cart. No question asked. Because hello! It defines the fucking reason I still manage to live in this damaged world. Yes! I live for food.

IMG_2589
Tank- Uptown18
Now comes the shining red trousers which you can rock whenever you feel bored of wearing the usual dull pants or chinos.
When denims are out of the equation & I can’t handle anymore sadness in my life, I fill it up with colors. Make sure you pull off coloured trousers according to the occasion. Most of times people have no idea what to wear & end up wearing something catastrophic. Yes! Like wearing red pants to some wedding function. No please! You don’t want one more embarrassing moment added to your life. Do you?

Trousers– Freecultr, Back cover– Uptown18, Sunglasses– Forever21

IMG_2556

2nd look:

Shirts! Men’s saviour for life. Like a knight in shining armour saving men from making a fool out of themselves. Whenever confused, wear a fucking shirt.
It just can’t go wrong. And this rule goes with the coloured pants too. Try pairing a plain solid coloured shirt with your pants & wonders will happen.
Here it goes:

IMG_2587

Shirt- Louis Philippe

With those stars printed sneakers from batata.in. It almost feels like I’m wearing a galaxy. So dope & comfortable.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sneakers- Zed

Tip: Try not to mix up different colors when wearing coloured trousers. Also keep your accessory game low & not blinkly because you pants are already defining the whole outfit. 😊

To conclude, like I always say you don’t need anybody’s approval to feel good. And most importantly when you feel good, it reflects on your face & eventually you look good. Eat it. Burn it. Remember to do your squats to stay healthy & booty-ful. Or just have a pizza instead, life will fuck you anyway. 😘

I’ll meet you guys next week.

Spread love.

Desi Lollapalooza.

Thalaiva! Bruh

Umm..Have you ever tried beedi or a desi pauaa?
Well this week your very own homeboy is turning desi. Yes! More like Kylie Jenner turning into Lisa Haydon. Haha okay quickly!
Gulab jamun or tiramisu? Samosas or dim-sums? Jared or Ranveer? Exploring your inner desi can so much fun.
We are talking about a westernised version of wearing a traditional Indian outfit, and why not?
With no pun intended Lollapalooza is on the top of my wish list. Soon after Coachella & Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza happens to be a big annual music festival, this year in Columbia celebrating its 25th year. Now that I couldn’t afford to go there, I thought it won’t hurt anyone if I throw some festive vibes in our own desi style.

IMG_2491

You’ll find people wrapped around in this kind of dhoti in south India, mostly on occasions like marriage. Trust me, nothing can be more comfortable than wearing a dhoti not even your favourite sweatpants.

Optimized-IMG_2500

IMG_2492
There are many ways to tie up a dhoti. One of them is what you’re looking at.
Why ready to wear? 1. You can actually stitch it at home like I did. Super easy. 2. You don’t have to worry if it would get opened accidentally. Also the best part? It doesn’t cost much make your own ready to wear dhoti.

IMG_2484

You can even add different coloured threads to add spark to your outfit.

IMG_2494

Now if you’re a fashion enthusiast like me & you’re bored of wearing your shirt, the same way, everyday. I can tell you a cooler way to carry if off. With SWAG.
Here instead of buttoning up the shirt, I simply tied a knot using the two sides.
Look I know this might seem quite outrageous to some of you but it doesn’t hurt to give it a try. Right? Who knows you might look as dope as the guy in this picture 😉

IMG_2497
Shirt: LP

Lollapalooza– For those who don’t know this is exact festival where Malia Obama (daughter of Barack Obama) was caught smoking pot. I mean I don’t even get why do they have to create an issue out of everything. Anyway so Lollapalooza has all the biggest EDM bands & artists, punk rock, hip hop artists performing in front of the coolest crowd possible. Now can you think of wearing something ethnic but at the same time punk enough to look dapper.

How can someone not admire this beautiful piece of art? Sheer Mesmerising & totally worth it. Adding up the right accessories plays an essential role on outfit’s final outcome. I remember the time I first saw this necklace in my friend’s accessory box I went OH MY GAUZE..WHAT FRESH HELL IS THAT? Haha & then I made my mind to feature it in one of my post. A shoutout for her, having an impeccable taste in styling. Here it is:

Jewellery: ARMANI EXCHANGE

Also this amazing friend of mine has started an ultimate online shoe store which I will highly recommend, not because she’s a friend but it actually features quite dope collection. Including this perfectly crafted brown ankle high pair which I’m currently wearing.

Tote bag: I can’t think of anything which can’t be fit in this bag. I mean it can carry upto 3-4 puppies easily. And that’s all I wish for . Haha. 😍 Firm, strong & good quality fabric makes it value for money.

Blue hairy, Pink fairy- Floyd

Let’s be fairy for once!

There comes a moment in your life where you have to choose between black or white. Surprisingly, I always go for pink. Well even guys have right to get pretty dolled up sometimes. It’s 2016 for fucksake, Barbies are for everyone. But do you also have that ungrateful son of bitch friend who always utters shit whenever you wear pink? Well! he’s the reason you’re so dope and successful, always keep him around. Oh & if you’re one of those who think pink is unmanly, please let me do the honours of shoving up that stupid male chauvinistic attitude up your ass.

Anyway So I have these life phases where at once I’d either be goth, all black everything or I would go full on floral. And why not? Pink & pastels are raging this season, I certainly can’t keep myself calm because it looks so damn cool.

IMG_2415

This look is inspired by breeze of summer which has left me all awakened. Tbh! I can happily die wearing this tank.

Specs– Dulce couture
What to wear when it’s not actually a date but you don’t wanna go too causal either. You know it gets so frustrating at times. Well, mix it up!
What about a tank with a pair of chinos? Yes! It actually looks pretty dope. See for yourself.

With those blue checked sneakers, keeping your moves chic & street styled. This outfit works perfectly even if it’s day out with your buds over drinks.

Sneakers– Zed

Check out those smashing trousers from H&M, so fitted & just so comfortable.
Not forgetting to show off the blue ombré hairdo because how can you even get over it?

IMG_2113

Try more pastel pink coloured shirts, trousers or shorts this month. And if you’d ask me to settle on one particular color & I’d totally freeze. No I just can’t. I believe color of your clothes depicts your mood. If you get what I mean. Not that every guy wearing black is suffering for pain. haha no. But adding colors to wardrobe definitely enhances your mood.

Get comfortable in your skin & let everyone know your worth. Slay this season with pink. 💗

Feel free to comment down below 🙂

I’ll see you guys next week. :*

Distorted Dreams: A Threesome

I wake up every morning, my eyes not yet completely opened & guess what I see? I see 10 new blogs emerging outta nowhere. Every damn day. With every girl’s dream changing to ” Me fashion blogger banna chahti hu ” or even better “Mummy fashion to Mujhe aata ni, to me na travel ya food blogger ban jati hu” Blogging is becoming the new engineering. Call me vicious or mean but I’m concerned about the content these people are stealing & putting it as their own. There would’ve been no problem if these people were to bring their own imaginative side rather than replicating someone’s idea. Getting inspired by someone & absconding with someone’s hard work are two completely different things. Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying people should not start blogging but for Gucci’s sake have some respect. Yes! Before we could discuss today’s outfit I had to put this thing out of my system (more at the end of the article).

IMG_2302
Anyway let me suppress my feelings for a while & tell you guys 3 different ways to slay distressed shorts. Simple, easy & yet making a statement in your daily street style appearance.

Rocking the Nail art for men

Ask me that one thing which I would wear all my life if I had to & it’d be this beauty. Coachella inspired, bringing the hippy outta you, this thing is your ultimate buzz lifter.
And so that you don’t go wrong with all the styling which is needed to be done, I’m here with my 3 ravishing looks:

Look 1.
Take your favourite quote tee. Mine happens to be this amazing black t shirt which I got from Urban theka , Chandigarh, when I was in the town for a weekend. Randomly appreciating their work, these people are actually making quite unique & creative stuff, desi at the same time, which is rare to find here in Delhi.

PUNJABI BLOOD

Now your favourite quote t-shirt doesn’t necessarily have to be black. But try to choose the right pigment according to the occasion.

 

 

IMG_2105

Bag- Azzaro chrome

This superlative piece of excellence from @azzaro chrome has my heart since I first gazed over it. Easy to carry, fits almost everything I need in this life to survive, makes it my ultimate choice.

IMG_2340

Look 2: 

Cleverly arranging & pairing your clothes is all you got to learn. A deep oval neck T Shirt alone might just look plain with the shorts but wearing a shirt over, makes it look complete.

IMG_2343
Now it’s important to understand the color coordination & don’t worry you only get it with time.

IMG_2344
T shirt- H&M
Shirt- Van Heusen

GAME CHANGER : Step up your accessory game like never before.
Raise up your middle finger if you don’t wanna become a walking cliché. Throw away all your regular men accessories just this time back into the drawer & come up with something like this.


Yes! What if you could make an accessory out of a necklace. Be creative & drop that bomb.
This spectacular piece of art from @forever21 which surprisingly goes with my hair is completely justifying & enhancing the look.

IMG_2349
SNEAKERS-

Have a look at those perfect crafted quintessential sneakers from @zed They have a wide variety of excellent shoes made with the finest material. Easy-to-put-on & super comfortable, make em so dope & flawless. I’ll be sharing some more amazing pieces from em in my further posts.

IMG_2345
Look 3:

Sometimes just KISS. Keep it simple silly.
A basic gray tee gets along with almost everything no matter how loud the colors around you.
A classic v-neck with a blended side pocket, maintaining the look in such a way that the whole attraction goes to your shorts.

Sunglasses- Marc Jacobs

Now that we’re done with the looks, I’m not keeping myself calm over the issue I raised in the beginning of the article. I’m happy that people are engaging themselves more into writing blogs. But it’s just not about posting pictures or gaining followers. It shouldn’t be the reason behind the startup. Trying to come up with new ideas which you’d like to share with the world, should be the core perspective. But who am I? Just another boy in the town who likes to blabber over things he thinks are worth being blabbered on.
I don’t mind if thousands of peeps aren’t reading this post. Even if only one person got engaged & understood what I’m trying to say, I’ll be far more than happy to rest my case.

Your view & comments are always welcomed. 💋

Stay tuned, stay humble
