{ FASHION} 3 Ways to wear the 70s Flared Denims



Hello beautiful people!

I still remember how much i adored bell bottoms as a teen. The first bell bottom i ever owned was a Red Velour one and it fit me like a glove on the thighs and then flowed into a beautiful flare. I was obsessed with it as a 9th grader. I could barely wear it enough as the top choices that went with it were limited. Then came college and my engineering college unfortunately had a uniform ! In the 3rd year, i happened to be in Mumbai for my cousin's wedding and thats when i got my hands on a stone wash grey-blue Denim bell-bottom.  It was mid-waisted & I wore it to death in my 3rd and final year- i thought i looked quite the bomb in those because every time i stepped outside campus- people stared and cat-called. Not the desired kind of attention, but i loved the denim anyhow.

Then came the first job out of campus. I bought my 3rd bell bottom denim- this time I was not a waist 30 - but waist 26 and so got a low-waisted bell bottom denim which had an embellished pocket.

I thought i looked a bomb again, because i had never worn a low waisted denim ever and never had waist 26. So i conceded this denim looked amazing for these reasons.

Then came skinny jeans and i felt how off the mark i was wearing those bell-bottoms which my mom despised. I thought i finally graduated into classy fashion and should naturally pile skinny jeans.

For 10 years, i didn't even look at bell bottoms , until now! These pretty pair were grabbed in Zara sale this season - July 2018 for approx Rs.1800 and i couldn't be more amused at how i am back with the flare- this time more exaggerated and for the first time- high-waisted. Suddenly i feel a relief because i no longer need to feel uneasy in my skinny pair during summers. It cannot get better.

I have styled it 3 ways to showcase how versatile these are and we can go on to 10+ ways to style these- if you were to use all tops in your closet. Anything i pair with this pair- seems to work . Woohoo!

Tell me if you will wear these looks and which one is your favourite?



STYLE 1: With a Frilly Blouse

STYLE 2: With a Skin-tight blouse & Denim jacket

STYLE 3: With a cropped-top and a knee-length Denim dress worn as a jacket

{ BEAUTY} 5 Monsoon Hacks for Beautiful Hair


Hello gorgeous people!

Firstly , i hope you are doing well in this rainy season especially since its wreaked havoc at some places! Secondly , sorry for posting all the time on instagram and not as much on the blog. I often
notice people like reading small informative captions as compared to a full fledged blogpost. However, for important topics like these, a blogpost is a must . A lot of you voted for this one on twitter as well as instagram and i did an INSTA LIVE with so many hacks. In this post , i list 5 important Hacks that I've used in the rainy season in Mumbai over the years .

Enjoy and share if you used these hacks!






1. CONDITION, SHAMPOO, CONDITION 

Yes, you read it right. Monsoons make hair unmanageable . The excessive humidity causes frizz leading to entangled hair. During hair wash, we struggle to de-tangle the hair and end up pulling at them with our fingers or the comb. Mind you, this makes the hair break and you not just lose hair from the roots but also mid-way. To make things simple- First, condition your hair with a conditioner. 
Keep it on for 5-7 minutes. Wash it off and you'll see smooth hair ready to be washed. You just saved yourself from a bad hair-breakage! Once you shampoo- remember to condition again. 
Infact you can use this tip whenever your hair get extra frizzy or after you've come back from the beach . 


2. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR FOR NO FRIZZ

A wonderful home remedy which is slightly smelly! I have used a cap-full of apple cider vinegar mixed in 5 parts  water to rinse my hair post shampoo. This is not only a remedy for frizz free hair but also helps in getting your scalp rid of dandruff . Talk about killing two birds with one stone! 
Remember to do a patch test just to ensure your scalp doesn't have wounds. Vinegar on a wound can be itchy and painful . 


3. USE WIDE-TOOTHED COMB

Thinly spaced or fine -toothed combs can further add to the frizz . After wash, use a wide toothed-comb to further detangle your hair. You may use a fine comb during blow dry for a straight-hair finish. 


4. BLOW DRY

Its important to not leave moisture in your scalp or hair before you head out. 
This little moisture can add to the frizz and attract fungi . Use a good dryer which is meant for daily use - esp 2000W and above. These are salon grade dryers which help in drying with minimal heat and effort thus causing less damage to the hair. 


 5. HAIR SERUM FOR BETTER HAIR 

Even if you use a good conditioner or a conditioning mask, the hair needs serum for 
manageability. Use a serum that suits your type of hair. Work the serum half-way day from the head to the hair tips. If hair tips are smooth, they won't entangle till your next hair wash. Also, serum can be used daily before you comb your hair . With consistent use of serum, i have experienced a lot less hair breakage and i can definitely vouch for its effectiveness all year round leading to better hair-growth conditions . 


Have a HAPPY MONSOON folks !

Till next time, 
CIAO!

{ 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.


A BODYSUIT worn as swimwear


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!

COLORS: 

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, 
.


Underwired bikini Top - ALDO | High waisted Bottoms- ZARA



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.
