OOTD – Denim on Denim!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 21st April 2015

Hello everyone!

Today’s post is going to be about one of the biggest trends for this season – Denim!

Denim1

The casual appeal that denim has is unparalleled and it is a fabric that can be moulded to fit an evening look as well.

Ripped jeans are one of my all time favourite pieces and a complete wardrobe must-have! This stunning pair can be styled in a multitude of ways but I wanted to create a more street-style appropriate look.

I rolled up the hem of my jeans to flaunt these gorgeous sandals!

I love how the denim corset adds enough curves and class to instantly uplift a monotonous white shirt-blue jeans outfit.

Denim5

My white shirt has a black collar and a black lace detail so I wanted to match my accessories to create a more cohesive outfit and pull the whole look together. These peep toe sandals look perfect when paired with this ensemble while the bag is roomy enough to fulfil all my on-the-go needs!

Since this is a casual outfit, I kept the makeup simple. This is the makeup look I gravitate towards on a daily basis.. You can check out my post on My Everyday Makeup Look to read all about how I do it and the products involved.

I finished the look with some gold jewellery.

10 Fashion Blunders To Avoid!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 5th January 2014

First of all, Happy New Year to all of you lovely people! I hope you had an amazing and safe start. I cannot believe its 2014 already. I am sure I am going to keep writing 2013 everywhere for a few months before proof reading! 😛

The internet is flooded with inspiration everywhere. But, there are just some times when you need to know what you ought not to do. I will be listing a few of my personal fashion pet peeves and I hope you find them useful! Also, I don’t mean to offend any of you. If you like to do any/all of these things then it is your own choice. For those of you who want to know some of my tips on dressing up, keep reading further :

1. Miss Color Overload :

Now this might just be me but too much color is off putting and distracting. It takes away from the personality and all your eyes can focus on is everything else covering our body. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you should stick to boring neutrals but learn to bring out a color in your outfit and rock it like you own it. If you’re shy then you can play up your look with your accessories. If you really love color and don’t want any neutrals, stick to pastels and chiffon. It looks amazingly feminine and ethereal.

For eg. Pair a bright colored blouse with neutral pants or vice versa. Pair a neutral blouse with a neutral skirt and add pop accessories. Pair mint green palazzos with a peachy tank. The possibilities are endless!

2. Miss Matchy-Matchy :

You don’t want to be covered in all matching pieces! It is always better to have some contrasting elements in your whole outfit. Something that shows your personality off. However, monochrome and black & white are huge trends and look very sophisticated when done right.

For eg. Black palazzo pants with a white top, black blazer and black shoes. If this is too safe/boring for you then add a bright belt and match your handbag to that!

3. Miss Lovely Handles  :

Love handles are not lovely to the slightest! If they’re showing, they can ruin your entire look. If you suffer from them then keep that muffin top tucked away in high waisted clothing. High waisted clothes bring attention to the smallest part of your waist and look very feminine and flattering on all body types. Just make sure it inot too tight.

For eg. Wear a beautiful high waisted skater skirt ( A line skirt ) with your blouse tucked it. The loose silhouette of the skirt will take away from a heavier bottom and not divulge that muffin top.

PS. If you suffer from a muffin top then please devote some time to fitness. It not only looks unpleasant but also contributes to diseases like diabetes.

4. Miss Poster Girl :

Please avoid things that flash the brand name as the main attraction factor. You don’t want to be a walking talking free advertisement of a brand. I see so many women with fake “Louis Vuitton” bags. Learn to combine pieces that show off who you are and don’t take away from your personality. Wearing flea market stuff or thrifted items isn’t cheap in the slightest way but trying to be who are not is.

5. Miss Look At My Cleavage :

Showing too much skin is never sexy, it just looks desperate. There are many ways to show off your beautiful curves without having to show too much skin. Showing cleavage isn’t wrong altogether but there is a time and place for it. Also, a good rule of thumb is to maintain a balance which means you are either showing a lot of leg or cleavage.

6. Miss Lousy Fit :

You never want to look like you just draped a curtain around yourself and left the house! If you’re on the curvier side then wearing baggy clothing can counteract your objective to look slimmer. Focus on your favorite parts of your body. If its your waist then cinch it in with a belt. Over sized or “boyfriend” clothes can look very relaxed and sexy if done right. Keep one element of your outfit on the loose side and style your look around it.

For eg. Wear a fitted tank or tee with boyfriend jeans and add brogues/minimalist heels for an androgynous look yet maintaining femininity.

7. Miss Disco Ball :

Sequins can not only look sexy but sophisticated. Again, focus on one element and let it do the talking. If you’re wearing a blingy dress then wear understated shoes. Same way, if you’re wearing blingy shoes then wear a beautiful simple dress. Also, don’t even get me started on wearing sequins during the daytime in the sunlight. It is just too much! If you’re really want to take your look up a notch then bling it out with accessories like a striking statement ring and an eyeball grabbing necklace.

For eg. Pair a sequinned blazer with a neutral top and pants. You can add a statement ring if you want.

8. Miss Tights Are Pants :

This is a very personal thing. Many women have no issues in wearing tights as pants but I have strong feelings against it. Camel Toe? Really? You don’t want to attract attention for all the wrong reasons. Plus tights as pants is highly unforgiving unless you have legs to die for! In my opinion tights are fine as long as your booty is covered. If you do like to wear your tights as pants then all power to you!

Blair Waldorf was right! Tights are not pants!

9. Miss Puddly Shoes :

Subconsciously, your shoes are the first thing people notice about you. Always clean or polish your shoes before leaving the house. Of course you might be caught in a miss hap some time or you may step in a puddle, but try to maintain good looking feet as much as possible. Especially during summer, when you wear cute open toe shoes to show off a beautiful pedicure.

10. Miss Print All Over :

Mixing prints is tricky but when done right can look really sophisticated. Make sure you stay in the same color scheme and not mix over bearing prints. A good and easy way to start is by pairing a printed top with printed shoes. When you feel confident enough you can move onto mixing your bottoms and tops.

Always remember to be confident. Confidence is sexy and will help you pull off any look with ease. Just remember not to be egoistic or over confident.

Also, even if you do make one of these “blunders”, just smile and let it go. Its only temporary and you can always look better the next day. Take inspiration from various blogs, videos, magazines, newspapers etc. A good way is to cut out pictures of outfits that you like and stick them on the door of your closet or just create a board. This way you can always look at the pictures for ideas while getting ready!

It is always handy to carry a few safety pins with you at all times to quickly rectify any unexpected wardrobe malfunction.

Also, take advantage of every single day to dress up in your best clothes! Get out of the house looking like you are about to meet the love of your life that day, add a little pep in your step and flash those pearly whites! You will be the most attractive girl all the time!

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful.

A Little Trouser/Jegging Haul :-)

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 24th September 2013

Hello everyone,

I went to GK 1 M Block Market today to get my nails back into shape after my acrylic french manicure. Read all about it HERE

If you’re like me and you hate the discomfort of skinny jeans but love how they look, you’re going to love jeggings and stretchy trousers! Skinny jeans look very flattering and sexy, but to me, jeans are really uncomfortable. I prefer to live in palazzos, maxi skirts, jumpsuits, dresses, skirts, leggings etc!

Now that we have skinny trousers and jeggings, I don’t have to worry about uneasiness anymore!

I was looking for regular black jeggings of some sort and I ended up buying three different ones!

I stopped at a store called “Gift Palace” and this is what I bought :

Image

They’re a lovely charcoal grey pair of jeggings which will be perfect for fall and they go with everything! I love that it has two zippers on one side and one on the other! They fit me like a glove! I bought them for Rs. 1050/-

This is how they look on me :

Image

Then a lovely girl just outside the shop, came up to me and said, if I was looking for trousers then I should go to a place called “Happening” which a just a few steps ahead and she had bought a few pairs from there too and loved them. I thanked her and went forward wishing to find some black ones!

And guess what? I did! 😛

And another one!

Image

Both of them fit me perfectly!

This is how the black ones look on me :

Image

Every girl needs a pair of black trousers! I love that it has a lot of buttons at the front and a broad belt. They look like jeans but feel like leggings! ❤

This is how the olive green trousers look on me :

Image

Olive green and military green are going to be huge this fall. Textured clothes are always in trend during the winters. This was such an amazing find! All of them feel very snug and soft but this has to be my favorite one out of the three! 😀 Now I just need to get them hemmed.

Both of these retailed for Rs. 1350/- each.

Thanks to the wonderful girl for telling me about this lovely shop! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my little haul.
