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?

Okay then… this was my round-up on trends that I hope you’ll try. Give it a go and tell me how it went.

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!

Co-ords: Heck yeah!

We know the trend of co-ords has been around for a while and if you wear them right, it’s one trend that is going to be around forever. Trends usually come and go but this one’s a keeper (just like a good boyfriend/husband, lol).

So for my favourite “trend post”, I dug into my wardrobe yet again (I have no plans to shop for every post I put up) and thought of showing you some ways how you coord ‘em right. Let’s keep a few pointers in mind. Warning: These tips are for ladies who haven’t dared to wear the coords yet!

  1. Whenever you wear co-ords, let them be the highlight of your look! Don’t over-accessorize and steal away its charm.
  2. Introduce an element to your look, that accentuates the co-ord. Eg: You’re wearing print on print, wear something neutral (shoes, bag) that helps the print/ colour pop!
  3. Fuss-free hair! As women, we love our hair (short, long, curly, blonde doesn’t matter what we are sporting in the season) but keeping them simple while wearing co-ords helps you dial UP your glam quotient several notches. So think- natural blow dry, simple top-knot or a ponytail.
