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!

So my fellow odd-cats, what’s the cocktail + fashion spiel from you? Write in if you have some more looks you want to share, or even some pictures. Would love to know!

Until next time (i.e. my show)

Oh yes, it’s time to step up your game, style game! Summer is upon us and amp-ing up without breaking into a sweat is no mean feat. So, here’s your accessory for the season that will give you that unique edge. Remember the rule: own it like you mean it. Styling is a lot about attitude so work that “queen bee” swag. And yes, headpieces work better with western wear! See for yourself.

LOOK 1
The first look I’m wearing a headpiece with a western outfit. It’s more like a day or sundowner kind of look. If this headpiece is a bit much for you, get a daintier one. But for me, bigger the better.

LOOK 2
The second look is edgier because we have given Mohawk a new avatar. It could have been worn both horizontally and vertically. I prefer the Mohawk style because it’s “out there” and edgy.

LOOK 3
The third look is “too glam to give a damn”! Almost like crowning glory and I reckon- it takes a lot to carry it off. The first time I wore it, I got many stares (not necessarily in a good way) but you know what- I was “too glam to give a damn” 😉

LOOK 4
Turbans are now finding its ground in the fashion scene. It’s the easiest way to turn around blah into blow-up! I work ‘em turbans quite a bit now and think these are kind of foolproof.

LOOK 5
This one is simple yet stylish. A casual dress, sneakers & turban. When street style is achievable and not redundant, turban to the rescue!

Bonjour! C’est la post du Fashion Week parce que je l’aime. Ah non! This is not a French post but a post on Paris Fashion Week. I got a bit carried away because my heart and soul is has virtually visited Paris Fashion Week and I can’t live à New Delhi any more. Also, I wanted to show off (or not) my French language skills. Lol!
Moving on… Let me tell you this post will require a book publishing because there’s so so so much I want to write about. But, I’m cutting it shorter (heart sinks) because no one has the patience to scroll and love like I do! Or wait, instead of capturing designer wise, let me write about the trends to watch our for this fall. How about that?

Trend #1- Monochrome: I love this trend because it’s timeless and easy to work. And when designers like Jacquemus and Elie Saab are giving lessons, you’ve got to listen. FYI- Jacquemus is in my #crushyou category for more reasons than one.

Trend #2- Box Checks: A timeless classic, thanks to the evergreen LVMH. Coming strong in various colour combinations, this one is looking chic and edgy at the same time. Get your checks on!

Trend #3- Knee-Grazing Pants: Knee-length or slightly below or slightly above, this one is not for everyone. However, if you can work this, you are going from day to night or high-street to high-fashion in no time. Give it a go! Pair with tucked in or semi-tucked in shirts with block heels and wear a cool hat. A total winner in ODD-CAT’s books.

Trend #4- Overlays: Reminiscent of the Victorian era, overlays are for everyone. There are so many ways to work this trend- over dresses, over jeans, over everything you own. Everyday overlays are fab; think jeans, tee and a long overlay dress! You’ll never a dull moment with this one.

Trend #5- Belted: A huge comeback this one! Again, you need to know your body type to make this one shine. If you’re a plus size, I’d reckon you stick to skinny belts (or even chain mails), if you’re an hourglass, any belt works for you accentuating a narrow waist and if you’re let’s say skinny b**** (haha), the bigger, the better! Give us a shout, if you want help with this.

Trend #6- “Cape” town: So we have all worn capes but this fall, the longer the better is the case. And I think it’s very wearable and very cool. Think long capes, skinny jeans (or leggings) and thigh-high boots. Who said only superheroes came with capes? All our super-women can rock them too.

Trend #7- Utility Pants: When comfort and style go hand-in-hand, it is everyone’s fav. And I’m certain, most of you will be leaning towards this one. Again, it works for most body types. You can wear it with a tee or a blouse or a jumper or a cropped jacket. And you can work it as brunch look or girls night out look or even a party look. I recently pulled this one for a party look and I had compliments falling in left, right, center! So get one, pronto!

Trend #8- Boiler Suit: If jumpsuits, were your thing, then boiler suit is a friendlier cousin to that one. No hassles coming in and out of this one, sister. Ready, set, suit!

Trend #9- Tux so luxe: ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!! I needn’t say more and leave you to it. But let me tell you this- when you rock one, you’ll be dialing up hot & chic 100 notches, atleast. Take my word for it and get your glam on!

Trend #10- Cool Hatter: Hats, hats and more hats this fall. The best accessory, I would say. No bad hair days, no blow-dries, no hair dos! Just put the hat on and you’re all set. My quick-tip: add the turban to this hat season.

Trend #11- “Bow”ler: Be a bow-ler and give feminism a new twist. Bows have always been the girly girl thing, but you know what, it always bring the cool cat vibe. So wear the bow even on-the-go. See how!

Trend #12- Oversized: Again, this one has been around for a while and by now you know how to make it work. A little tip though: oversized doesn’t mean clumsy frumpy. While, it’s great to hide ‘em flaws, do it in style and not like it’s not your size. Inspiration enclosed 🙂

Trend #13- Layering: So bloggers all over the world and are telling us that how layering helps them stand out in the crowd. But, this can go terribly wrong, if you haven’t had a lesson or two in this. And sadly though, it’s not for everyone!

Trend #14: Power of Pink: It’s the colour, every fashionista is swearing by and truly there’s a unique power of pink. Gradutated from Barbie dolls to power haul! I say- wear ‘em pink y’all.

Phew! That was the round-up on trends from Paris Fashion Week. And TBH, there’s so much more. I have more favs, in terms of my fav looks, fav designers, etc… but let’s just wrap here. Holler me, if you need more styling advice.
