OOTD – Party Peplum with Zumbasa

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 4th September 2015

Hello everyone!

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you know my love for peplum! ❤

Zumbasa3

I don’t care if it’s out of fashion, I’ll continue to wear it till I think it’s pretty! It is so forgiving (i.e. hides your food baby) and comfortable to wear. So, you can comprehend that when I found this stunning white dress on Zumbasa, I was blown away!

Dresses are so easy to style and only need the right accessories to take your look to the next level. This one already comes with a gold metallic belt that can be used with other things in your closet too!

I decided to take the all-white route to keep the look fresh and clean and styled the pretty tube dress with sky high white pumps. I wanted the jewelry to complement my gold belt so I wore a minimalist necklace, some fun rings and a chain bracelet in gold. To add a little bit of extra something, I threw on a pair of heel chains on my feet which gives my plain white pumps a whole new feel!

The best part is that I have a discount code for you! You can shop whatever you want from Zumbasa and get a cool discount by using the code : “AISHWARYA15” at checkout! Happy Shopping! 😀

OOTD – Edgy Red

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 29th June 2015

Hello everyone.

Today’s post is about the outfit that I wore to the Jabong Beauty Blogger Meet.

Seen on me is a gorgeous red floral dress that I designed. I love simple, sweet and girly summer dresses in this hot weather. I purchased the cloth from my local store and designed this understated dress with quarters sleeves and a skater style. Such dresses are incredibly comfortable and look super cute on their own but I wanted to take it a step further with accessories.

I decided to edge up an otherwise girl next door dress with a broad belt and gladiator heels. A black tote was my bag of choice to carry all my essentials in. I especially love how the heart sunglasses match so perfectly with my dress!

OOTD – Boho Vibes!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 22nd June 2015

Hello everyone!

I bought a lot of fun skirts from Sarojini Nagar recently (haul video will be up soon) so, I wanted to create a boho inspired look. I usually like to dress up in sophisticated, clean lines and structured, fitted clothes but I wanted to venture out of my little comfortable space and create an all-new look.

This is my take on boho. I have paired this beautiful embellished crop top that I’ve had lying in the back of my closet since ages. The skirt is a stunning plain black maxi skirt with a side slit that gives it just a little something extra.

I decided to add a modern take to this look by pairing gold metallic pointed-toe pumps. Of course, you can rock a pair of strappy or gladiator flats with this look too. My handbag is a simple black clutch with gold accents.

The star of this look for me is the choker. I found this breathtaking choker in Sarojini Nagar and it was a steal! The rest of the jewelry is kept to a minimum with the exception of a minimal arm cuff.

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!
