I love myself a good cocktail… and I think most women do. This is the yummy, complicated glass beverage I am referring to, not the dress. (Which FYI I love too, but that’s another post).

If you follow me (and if you don’t- what are you waiting for?) you would  already know that I’m launching my own line of fabulous leather bags & leather jackets super soon. I’m also curating a small trunk show with a few other designers whose work I love! It’s going to be AH-MAZING! So do come by 🙂

Anyway, moving on… Now that we have established some facts about the launch, etc, I have to tell you that I will be serving some delish cocktails at the show. I mean- girls just wanna have fun, right? Then, cocktails actually do multiply the fun we have with fashion (you know it’s true).

So all of this pre-show excitement got me thinking.. Which cocktail is it I identify most with? What you’ll read below are some of my favorite cocktails that I think gel with a certain look. Do read and figure out which cocktail screams YOU.

Bellini: If not Prosecco, then definitely Champagne ! The peaches, the sparkling…yumm! So how can one tell they are a Bellini? Simple: It’s classy with a hint of quirk. And, that’s what mostly floats my boat. Wear an elegant black dress and then give it a twist! Like a bold lip, a funky accessory.. And you’re set!

Bloody Mary: I’d like to describe this one as  “hot mess”! So, if you love a bloody mary, you’d better be pulling off the look. What’s that, you wonder? Think- skinny jeans, camisole, a jacket thrown over and messy, bedhead hair. Some red lip- and you’re just the right kind of Bloody Mary.

Dirty Martini (with Gin, please): Dang! Yes, that’s the flavor bomb of the martini and the one who looks every bit a martini; bold & beautiful ! Think- Slip Dress, a Judith Leiber, Heels (stilettos or kitten only) and shoulder-grazing danglers. Lips: understated but glossy! Ahem… stop drooling!

Cosmopolitan: Simply delish. Yes, even to look at. Everytime, we mention a Cosmo, we instantly picture Sex and The City. Now, if you are “cosmo”, your style is your own. You practically wear anything and make it look “cosmo”. But just for reference sake, here is what you wear: Shimmer pants, simple tee, kitten heels, bold effing jewelry and bold bold eyes! Maybe, you can wear a hat or a feather or whatever is befitting your mood at the time.

Daiquiri: Just because it’s always on the menu, doesn’t (by any means) mean it’s standard. It can grow on you, rather slowly. So, if you’re working a “Daiquiri” look, visualise: Cargo pants, chunky shoes (heels or sneakers- your pick), tank top with multiple bracelets and maybe a cropped denim jacket thrown over!

Oh yes…. Trends come and go and whether you like it or not, you do indulge yourself in some. Don’t say ohhh I’m not a trend-victim.. I’m always classic; that’s some BS, else you won’t be here reading this. Alright then, let’s start with it.

ODD-A-TREND #1
Neon: Heck Yeah! It’s a bit polarizing for some coz it’s not always easy to sport it. But you know what… you can always include it in your style, a tiny bit and go from there.. I mean, if you love it, get some more next time, if not, move on to trend no.2 already. So here’s what I know about Neons- they are bold and hence need a subtle pairing. Bright neon tights? Wear a white shirt and knot it. Tie your hair, gloss them slightly and wear ‘em heels.

Too much? Start with a nail paint. Duh! What more? Introduce it in your shoes. Crack these looks below.

ODD-A-TREND #2
Cycling Shorts/ Longish tailored shorts: Back with a bang! Now…. This one is not everyone’s cuppa tea but let me tell you straight- you can’t get more comfy than that. Lol! I’d say give it a shot… the other day, I just wore the cycling shorts with a long easy-breezy tunic and some bright flats. Looked fab, FYI! Another way is glam is to glam it up! Pair it with a light summer-y blazer, get a nice blow-dry (or a top-knot if you like it so) and wear tiny heels like kitten heels. And splash some red on your lips, I say!

Dainty dresses: Romancing It Right- We all have that one dainty dress that is kind of tucked away (unless, you’re like me and don’t so dainty, ouch!). I reckon, you pull that one out and give it some twist. Quite literally so! Think- dainty dress, beach waves, a nice crochet bag, and cute flats (or if your city allows, some nice boots). Good ol’ country vibes.

ODD-A-TREND #4
All White: Done Right!– This one is for everyone. How can you not? It’s chic, classy, crisp and very very sexy! How I’d wear it? Wear all white (and I mean all white) with glossy red lips and sick heels. Now, we are talking…! G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S (just said it the American way.. anyone been watching some American reality tv?) Hahaha.

ODD-A-TREND #5
Vinyl Heels: Get ‘em already!– I am currently living in my vinyl heels. My only problem is- some (ahem… clearing throat) fashionistas (make believe) online have kind of killed it for me.. but I hope you haven’t encountered them yet. So ya… what was I saying again? Ya… get yourself a pair of vinyl heels coz you can work them with anything… literally anything. It’s like barefoot without being barefoot and being a few inches taller. No one would mind that, right?
