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.

      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…

      How did you spend this Valentine?I am so happy its spring again.Can I please please have spring all year round?
      Anyway I am back with another outfit post.I am so excited for this one.Why?Because I look pretty in this outfit 😄😄
      I love Indian wear.But I don't usually wear them much.And when I do, I try to experiment.Because I don't want to make it all boring with the same kurtis and salwar/churidars.Check out how I wore my kurti today.




      I recently got this ethnic black jacket with golden print.I really love it so much.Isn't it really gorgeous?You can buy it from the link at the end of this post.
      So this jacket was a total show-stopper.I didn't want anything else to steal its limelight.So I wore it over a plain black kurti and black cropped jeans.Black and gold are my favourite combination.I have accessorised the whole outfit with golden accessories- a golden anklet,rings and a rose gold watch.My bright red painted nails and lipstick makes the whole outfi…

      OOTD : Tee-Shirt Dress

      Hi there,

      Comfort fashion was all the rage last year.And it doesn't look like it is going anywhere anytime soon.Who's complaining?After all fashion is all about comfort.And what can ever be better than comfort being the trend?Like there are days when you just want to totally ditch the pants,sit back and relax.But oh! you have to meet that friend for brunch?We have all been there.That's when the T Shirt dress comes as a saviour to mankind( women kind actually *tee hee* 😃😃 ).Just throw in your nice big snugly Tees as a dress and go meet that friend.So it's like you get to stay in trend with minimum effort.Can you even think of anything better than this?

      Okay I am not the only one who's going nuts over this latest fad.From Rihanna to Taylor Swift, this trend is totally the new BFF of the fashionistas.Check out how I wore mine.













      I got this dress from Koovs (hattieXkoovs).Did you notice the cute print on the dress?I threw a bright yellow shrug over it and finished the…
