{ F.A.S.H.I.O.N} A Simple guide to Swimwear

Hello Hotties!

For some of us lucky people, summer is all year round. For others, its about to hit! Most sources on the internet classify body types and recommend swimwear styles according to that. Truth be told, thats where
most of us stop because we are not sure of our body type. To make it simple, lets just focus on the bust size and the lower body . Lets hope this is a simple guide to help you choose the perfect swimwear. For any queries, post in comments!

*Get above styles on OYSHO and AVAVERDU.

Lets get started....

BRA CUP - A/B :  Try the classic bikini/ triangle shape bikini or wear a strapless one-piece to accentuate the upper body. You can totally flaunt Bandeau tops or ruffled bikini-tops which are best when less support is required. Even high neck halter styles do wonders but such pieces are difficult to find.

BRA CUP - C/D : Go for a full support one piece . Choose a deep V-neck for minimising the bust - it looks amazing! If you love wearing a bikini , think broad straps for better support. You can also wear bikini tops with an underwire for support & pair it with high waisted bottoms to look ultra chic . Have you tried 3/4th sleeve bodysuits? Well, even they make for an amazing style on the beach if you're not swimming . You can also try the halter that ends near the bust which again makes for a minimising style.

HEAVY LOWER BODY: You can draw attention away from heavier lower body by wearing a top that has ruffles to make the look proportional. Try boxy shorts if you are wearing separates. Try color-blocking ,if you love experimenting and use darker colours for the bottoms.

BRA CUP D onwards:  Busty women look great in tankini tops or bikini tops paired with high waisted bottoms. 
For a heavier bust, its always great to pair a beachwear look with heavy metal accessories- like layered neckpieces. Heard of the beach goddess?

At the end, its always best if you spend a lot of time in trial rooms . The more you try, the more you’ll discover what works best for you. Its definitely not a one type, suits all scenario! So don't be shy and try till your eyes approve with a YESSS!


For any body type, Solid colours are the best way to look toned down. Also look for one piece swimsuits which have a curvy outline/pattern/patch near the waist which make you look like an hourglass figure- only if you prefer it that way. Dainty prints look good most of the times. Avoid big floral prints as they make the look too busy,

2018 Trends: Ruffles and polka dots are back . Especially with the high waisted styles , a  60s bikini look is whats being seen in a lot of collections. 
Also, if you have a petite frame, do try the scooped front high leg style to make your legs look longer. This trend takes a lead for 2018 swimwear looks. 

Till next time, CIAO!

{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} Sequinned Dreams

Hello my sweet people!

I am truly truly elated as i share this editorial with you. You know that feeling when ,what you visualise in your very casual thoughts, materialises into something even better.

This post is very much that and more. By now you know that Dolce and Gabbana is my favourite runway designer. Call it Rockstar royal- the D&G collections with their sequinned /shimmer dresses steal the runway limelight. There was a D&G collection in 2013 and i was floored with the embellished hairbands and of course sequinned dresses.

I thought the hairbands would never see a fashion store because it was too luxe to handle. But I was proved wrong 5 years later in 2018 !
Better late than never and thank you Zara for bringing runway glam to the stores. Though this hairband is half as good as the D&G ones, its perfect to flaunt in a day time or night time party .

The dress was thrifted from a store in Bandra. Its a limited edition Zara collection to which i will share the original ZARA website photo. This 80Euro dress ( it had labels intact) was bought in Rs800 on New year's eve- 31 DEC 2017. For those who follow me on instagram , i wore it on the same night and brought in the new year 2018 in this shining beauty. Lets not talk about what i was doing :D
There was no empty restaurant and i was eating street food in this dress, haha and i definitely had people staring at me in this bling !!!

The hairband was on sale and i got it for Rs.390. The shoes are also Zara and i got them in sale for Rs.1690. The earrings are another hot favourite and were found in Colaba causeway for Rs.120.

This whole look completed in Rs. 2900 and it cannot get better. You can also DIY the hairband in case you don't find it. In 2018, i am betting on hairbands and hair accessories that perk up the look, what about you?

{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} My idea of LOVE

Happy Valentine's day people!
While the indian media will be divided on how and why this day is observed in India, i believe life is too short to contemplate especially when it comes to LOVE!

I have never overly obsessed over this day in my life, and by obsess i mean i didn't set unrealistic expectations . I would be happy if i got those secret flowers and not sad if i didn't.

At times, i also thought, why only girls think of receiving gifts and flowers, even the boys will be  delighted if someone gifted them. But thats not how love is supposed to function for most of the populace.

The guy's gotta play the first innings. But luckily, more and more girls have taken charge and love to start the match- lucky men, right! And i think its absolutely fair.

Its funny that days like Valentine's celebrating LOVE ,are more popular when we actually don't understand love- in the teenage years. As we grow, the meaning of love gradually takes shape and now we know its more than just a day when you say I LOVE YOU!

Making your partner feel good isn't about flowers or gifts , though if they matter to your partner you should definitely use these to bail yourself out of difficult situations :D . Otherwise, the department of love functions on a heady dose of respect, acceptance, care, kindness and everything else in between. This makes up LOVE! So tell me whats in your bouquet for your favourite person? All of this or red roses ;) I sure have some red dresses thrown in for myself. Take a dekko!

Dress- C/o French Connection| Tiered Tassel earrings- Colaba causeway for Rs.120 | bejewelled hairband- ZARA sale at Rs.390 | Heels- Charles & Keith ( From a secret sale for Rs.1500| Watch- Daniel Wellington- Use Code - ILA for a 15% off if you are yet to get yourself a DW Watch!

Till next time, CIAO!
