How to wear Pastels

Hi again,

Pastels are the most delicate and feminine shades.They are the most soothing hues out there.And as contrary to popular belief,they are actually very versatile.The key is to wear them right.Here's a list of few Dos and Don'ts when you are wearing pastels.

     How to wear pastels :

      • You can colour block pastels without hurting others eyes.Yay ! If you have always wondered how they wear two colourful shades and still look pleasing to the eyes,but the thought of doing the same sends shudders down your spine,fret not.Pastels are the way to go.You can pair two pastel shades for that chic feminine look.

      • Or wear pastel accessories with pastel outfit but in different shades.Take tips from Aayushi Bangur in this pic. 


      • Wear pastels with cute prints or floral print.Suppose you have a cute little skirt with prints in three or more colours.Choose one of the lighter shades and wear a top in the same colour.Pairing cute tiny prints like the one in the picture above is a no brainer and always looks super chic.
      • Neutralise your pastels with grey,black,white or tan if you want a more sophisticated look.Add a tan belt to cinch a pastel dress.

      • Give some edge to your delicate pastels with leather or denim jackets or a fitted blazer.
      • You know what's too cool for the summer?Pastel blazers.

      How not to wear pastels :

      • Most important- Do not cover yourself in the same pastel hue from head to toe.This is so not in trend and stings the eye.As for that matter,not just pastels,but any colour.Just do not overdo it.Red dress,red shoes,red purse and red lips ; Ouch ! Ouch! My eyes already hurt from picturing it.Pastels may be a little delicate but covering yourself in one would make you look like you fell into a candy machine.Instead try wearing nude/tan shoes and accessories with your pastel outfit.


      • Loud makeup and delicate pastels do not get along.Remember to keep your makeup subtle.And I do not mean you go as blank as an empty canvass.Sharp outlined eyes and bright lips make you way prettier.Just don't go wild with your imagination while doing your eyes.

      I wore a turquoise spaghetti strap top with black culottes, a printed blazer and nude block heels and accessorized with my glasses, a rose gold watch and some pretty rings.To complete the look I have added a beige sling and a swipe of red lipstick.

      Keep calm and geek on

      I'm a geek who loves fashion. There's been a reinvention of the word geek. It means being passionate about anything that's under the radar or sort of frowned upon, like Comic-Con. Kristen BellThere's something about geek fashion that i absolutely love.Nerdy glases, blazers, ties and sneakers- I am in love with anything that involves any of these.If I had to define geek fashion in one word, it has to be SEXY ! Gosh ! those things are hot.

      So this time I wore a black T shirt dress that has 'Feminism' written on it.Now, I am feminist AF.And before you judge me for being anti men or something, let me make it clear.I am a true feminist.You know, the ones who actually believe in gender equality.The ones who split the bills.The ones who give up their seats for the elderly or the disabled,irrespective of their sexes.

      Okay coming to my outfit.I paired my T shirt dress with a longline shrug, a fishnet stockings, and white flatform sneakers.And oh! my very nerdy glasses.  Ha…

      OOTD : How to wear a trench coat this winter

      Best thing about winters? TRENCH COATS ! Oh my god, they look so damn classy.I wish I had one in every colour.Actually I think I would have got them all if only they weren't so pricey 😦😦.But it is definitely worth owning at least one since they are never going out of style; nor can you ever be too old to wear one.



      Before I come to my outfit post,I have a few tips for you to keep in mind while buying a trench coat that suits you the best.
      According to your shape  If you are top heavy avoid anything bulky like heavy collars or embellishments or huge buckles.Also look for single breast coats to avoid looking too big.If you are generously blessed on the bottom half of your body, look for straight coats that are longer and do not fall midway or just below your hips(that is going to make you look bigger on the bottom). If you have a tiny bosom, look for trench coats that define your waist and have big collars.Double breast coats will flatter you.If you are leaner down the waist, wea…
