Nautical Fashion 2012: Part 3 Colored denims


After Part1 and Part2 of the Nautical fashion series, here i bring you another style dedicated to the
trend that will never die.
Like i had said earlier, this is a tribute to Coco Chanel who introduced this trend for women .I will keep
this series going (as most of you requested) till her Birthday month i.e August .

To any element that wants some 'life & love' add a flower.
If stripes seem plain to you, add a floral touch, either with accessories or let the print do it for you!
Florals and stripes work beautifully in harmony. In fact, many fabric prints use this combination.
It combines the femininity of flowers with the smartness of stripes.
Add colored denims, and its a whole new happy outfit for you .
Since choosing stripes is easy, let us concentrate on the bottoms- the colored denims.

Colored denims- not your thing?

Most people avoid risking their wardrobe with a colored denim.
Luckily,people have now started embracing them ,thanks to their availability and people
like you and me who want this cheery & colorful addition.
One of the reasons why people avoid colored bottoms is because they feel there are limited ways
of styling one.
But believe me, once you start wearing them, you will realise they can be quite versatile.
Colored denims go very well with striped tops.Its either white or its stripes.
Although unlike your classical blue denims, colored denims have to be chosen with care.

How to chose the colored denim that suits you?



I'll save you the complex exercise of identifying your skintone etc.etc,to identify the right shades.
Instead, I will quote Leatrice Eiseman, author of The Color Answer Book ($10,amazon.com) and director of the Pantone Color Institute( Remember the post on Pantone color of the year, here ?), the international authority on color.
 "Some colors work for all skin tones and hair colors, because they fall into the middle of the color spectrum, meaning they're not too warm or too cool," says Leatrice Eiseman


She lists the 4 universally flattering clothing colors.
And i believe these are the 4 colors that are the safest bet irrespective of your skin-tone!
Buy any denim from this color chart , and you my darlings, will rock the colored denim trend like you never did before!
4 women with different skin tones donning the 4 magic colors .



COLOR 1: Eggplant

COLOR 2: True Red

COLOR 3: Indian Teal

COLOR 4: Mellow Rose

Remember, pick any denim in one of these shades, and it will definitely be fail-safe.







                                                                Shadows overplay

MATCH-MAKER- Look how seamlessly patterns from the wall mosaic & my shirt match!

A little SUN here, a little SUN there, a little SUN everywhere!

Whoever said RED was loud?! Look which color screams here....!


The most refreshing Lemonade ever---especially after looking at the sun straight in its eye!
Dear Sun ,shine bright...Don't give me a tan in the night!

Red denims - Globus,           Rs.1200 (Last worn here.)
Top- Hill Road,                    Rs.200
Mustard Kolhapuris,Colaba, Rs.250
The messenger bag you see here is my regular staple!

  2. At times I am jealous of you ladies :-D .. you people have so many colors to choose from....I always liked horizontal stripes over vertical stripes..despite the notion that horizontals make one look broader (but I don't subscribe to it) :-)
    Like always..this post is also a delight to view..

    1. So true Rohit.Guys can experiment with colored bottoms too, but with caution.
      If you think you can carry it well, you can definitely wear colored bottoms- Its only about your attitude then.

      Horizontal stripes have a certain presence you can't ignore!
      Thanks for reading :)
