This Summer, No Bummer- How To Keep it Casual yet Trendy?

HELLO! Drunken youth. Summer has just begun & my MIA on this handle just halted. While everyone’s busy keeping up their ass hydrated from the scorching heat, I’m on a quest these days shooting for new stories while trying to get along with the hectic college life & of course a bunch of other dramas which goes without saying.

Starting off! The idea behind these 2 looks is ease, comfort & keeping it minimal for everyday wandering.

Look 1: Military Greens 

Trend spotted: Relaxed fit

From military uniforms to high-fashion runways, olive green has indeed come a long way. We have seen more and more brands adopt this colour not just in clothing but in various other categories as well as footwear, bags, jewellery, and even home furnishing. As aptly quoted by the goddess Miranda Priestly, floral for spring is way too mainstream & hence bringing some camo utility in action.

Paired with green ankled trousers, giving camouflage vibes while stretchability adding a dose of comfort to the whole look.

Sneakers- Obtrusive, loud, flashy & so damn fancy. Recently got these beauts in silver from Koovs apart from the shimmery golden ones which you might have seen in my previous stories. And guess what!? They have little LEDs too, literally so lit.

Outfit: Westside

Related Accessories: Sunglasses: Coolwinks. Sneakers: Koovs.

Look 2- The Mechanic

A little smaller than a jumper, bigger than a romper. By whatsoever name you’d like to call it, totally up to you. What I can assure you is that this piece of absolute charmer is captivating, eye catching & like I mentioned earlier, comfortable af.

Whether you’re dressing for a causal day or an evening out with your friends, it’ll definitely make you the”IT” guy at every occasion, standing out among the crowd.

Teaming up with these new Adidas originals kicks, being the perfect addition to the look. Giving it a very laid-back & relaxed overlook.

Quick tip: Over a period of time when everyone’s done checking out your new romper/jumper & now it’s not new anymore! You don’t have to worry, I’ve got you covered.

You can actually pair it with a solid coloured t-shirt & boom! You’ve got a new outfit. Just like this: 1. A t-shirt over it. 2. Open it till your waist & keep it hanging.

How To Slay: White on White Outfits- Everything You Should Know About The Trend

No matter how hard it is keep the whites white, we still end up stocking up our wardrobe with them. And even though black will forever be more dominant & endeared or whatever, White. is. timeless.

IMG_6583_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-32-45

Hola drunkards! Hope you guys are doped. A very happy new year to each one of you (for the new readers) While I had an amazing year-end bash & began 2018 with purple haze (Click here if you don’t know what I’m talking about). I’m still struggling to balance out my new city life. With no time to catch even a single breath, I thought why not serve you guys with a quick dose of quirkiness.

IMG_6584_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-33-56

The most minimalistic way to street style is to play with monochromes but where’s the fun in that? After a while it becomes dull & dry as dust. Hence to make it more stimulating & oppose the force, I created this look. Chic, snazzy & yet comfortable. Thoughtfully using the stand out elements, making the outfit more distinctive because devil’s in the details, right? Have a look: 

IMG_6579_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-30-37

Top: Boxy fit sweatshirt with round neckline & extended sleeves

From slim fits to the worst skinny fits, we’ve seen it all & currently the wide loose fit is getting its due attention. It adds volume to the outfit & at the same time doesn’t suffocate you to death.

Things to keep in mind:

  1. Make sure everything else is fitted when you’re rocking a relaxed-fit apparel, otherwise you might end looking wacky!
  2. Say no to baggy pants, they’re too scruffy for this t-shirt.
  3. Keep it casual to balance out. Still confused? tuck it in.
  4. Try pairing it with an unstructured jacket if you wanna go EXTRAA.

IMG_6581_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-31-16

Made with cotton, this piece is perfect for the unpredictable weather conditions as well. Not too thin & not too warm, either.

Sweatshirt- Koovs Fashion

Creating a contrast:

To heft up the lower part- The wider silhouette is complimented with the boots, alternatively you can try a pair of sneakers with round toes.

Avoid: Pointy, narrow shoes & sporty kicks.

IMG_6587_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-36-43

Accessories:

A wide brim, pinched crown fedora

For:

  1. Enhancing the outfit, drawing attention towards it.
  2. Perfect for the bad hair days.
  3. Protects you from rain, cold etc. (Ugh! like you didn’t know)

IMG_6585_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-34-20

 

Tip: Be very careful while pairing up this beaut. When done wrong, it can look tacky af. but hey! who gives a fuck? TRY.

Fedora- Forever 21

Sling bag: Jabong India, Boots: Timberland

Metal brim round sunglasses:

Sporting it everywhere! Driving, running, styling, biking.  No, not biking. I don’t own a bike but you see the point, right!? Courtesy: coolwinks

Bottom:

White shorts (Slim fit, raw edge, elasticated waist). You can try a fitted white trouser as a substitute. Whatever suits you! I like to summer-fy everything I see.

IMG_6586_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-35-55

 

Currently trending, white on white is most elegant way to turn heads around. Easy to carry with finesse. Also pocket friendly! A white t-shirt & a trouser doesn’t cost a dime & the same time there’re infinite ways to slay them. Everyday you can create a new look with the same piece of clothing.

IMG_6578_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-38-28

 

Shorts: Forever 21

Coming to the end of today’s story I’d like to fill up your mind up with verve. Please don’t keep yourself away from trying new things. Not only just clothes but everything you urge to strive. If you think it’s right for you, chances are it is. If it goes wrong! Well, own it & learn from it.

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)

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.

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.
