Let’s Patch Things up-Part 2

In my last post Lets Patch things up- part 1, I wrote about the latest trend of badges, patches, brooches and pins and how to style your clothing using this trend. This post is on styling accessories and shoes using badges, patches, brooches and pins.

  1. Trendy Bags:-

Back when I was in school we use to put badges on our backpack for the cool kids effect. Back then there were not many choices when it came to badges and patches. Smiley faces in round shape were easily available. Later came the badges with our favourite superhero emblems and TV stars (I remember owning a few Hannha Montana badges) but the shape was still round.

Now with the wide variety of designs and shapes being available, decorating your backpack is super easy. Big brands are embracing the patch trend and decorating their purses, totes, pouches, slings and clutches too.

Brands like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci have  also been using patches and badges lately to stay on trend and make their bags unique.

2. Caps/ Beanies/Hats:-

80s hair and head accessories have had a major fashion influence. Bikers and sports fan have always been seen rocking patches on their caps. But now its not just limited to bikers and sports fans or caps.

Putting 2 or 3 pins on a beanie is a great way to style this up.  You can also sew on a few patches on your favorite hat to match your outfit or location.pilled-up6c366f77f17ed0ccc2a02598278687db

3. Shoes:-

Patches can be put on any footwear – from boots to bellies and from heels to flats.

DIY your old pair of loafers or sneakers by sewing on some fun patches. Your boots can be given a whole new look by loading them with pins. For example, you can put the GAME OVER patch on your shoes for a great effect.tendencia-parches-zapatillas-renzo-costa-blogScreenshot_2016-04-17-10-28-54-1.png

Hola Everyone,

A very Happy New Year to all of you. My resolutions for this year are quite simple. Like 90% of the people I have decided to go to the gym regularly but, instead of loosing weight I am planning on gaining some. I also plan on traveling a lot and therefore you are going to see a lot more travel blogs from me. The last resolution is to follow every upcoming style and fashion trend.

So, keeping in mind my last resolution I made a list of few things that would help me stay fashionable in the winters of 2017. I am sharing my list with you guys and hope you too will find it helpful.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO STAY STYLISH IN WINTERS OF 2017

  1. Flared jeans :- Yes they are back. The bell bottoms from the 90s are back in fashion and fashionistas all over the world have been spotted wearing flared jeans this season. From Kendell Jenner to Kangana Ranaut, it’s all over the globe.Cropped-Flare-Cover.jpg
  2. Knee high boots:- They are a classic winter must have. These gorgeous high boots are mainly used to fulfill two purposes. First, to keep you covered and secondly, to increase your sex appeal. When worn with slacks or a pencil skirt, knee-high boots are totally office-appropriate and can be party ready when worn with a mini skirt or shorts.knee-high
  3. Ankle boots:- A heel ankle boot is the best way to pick up your jeans, tapered trousers, a flippy printed dress, or winter shorts and tights a notch while still maintaining the tough and rugged feel.fashion-2014-12-04-dolce-vita-daytona-lace-up-booties-main.jpg

Summer festival look and essentials

Hello everyone,
Summer is here and it’s the festive time!! We all love fashion, music and a mix of all that jazz.
I bring to you all the essentials that you need to look fabulous and chill at a summer music festival.

1) Sunnies:-
It’s summers and the sun is shinning high. I’m sure you girls want to enjoy this season instead of walking partially blinded in the sun. Wear a cool pair of sunglasses preferably a one with bright and colourful frames. They protect you from UV rays and are the coolest accessory available.

image

2) Caps/Hats:-
Hats and caps are the cutest head accessories possible. There are a huge variety, designs and colors available to match any possible outfit. It also shields you from the harsh harmful sun rays.

image

3) Footwear:-
Your feet need all the rest they can get as you have to do a lot of walking. Choose your most comfortable pair of heels or nice boots. Wedges or block heels would be a very good option

image

4) Accessories:-
The best accessories for a summer festival are hats and sunglasses as discussed earlier. If you are all about accessories go for a bunch of bracelets and a choker. Don’t go for a statement piece of jewellery as it would be hot and not comfortable at all.

image

5) Clothing:-
The temperatures are going to be hitting the roof so it’s the perfect time to pull out those shorts, skirts, backless tops and short dresses. A cute little flowy Bohemian dress would be great for the day. For colors it would be better to go for whites and pastel colors. Don’t go for dark colors as they absorb a lot of heat.

Also remember to keep yourself hydrated as this is the only thing that will keep you pumped up the entire day.

THREE WAYS TO STYLE A LONG MAXI SIDE SLIT TOP!!

Hey everyone,
I bought this cool Long maxi side slit top from FAB ALLEY and I simply love how versatile it is. You can just go crazy styling this top.

In this post I’m going to style this top in three different ways. So, let’s get going…(before I start, I would like to let all of you know that this post is not in collaboration with any brand)

1) AS A TOP-

In this look I paired the top with simple denim shorts that I bought from VERO MODA. I chose to wear a pair of sequence sneakers with it. To complete the look I wore a simple thin beaded necklace. This is a great look for a brunch or a movie or just a fun day out with friends.

Here are the details of the first look:-
Top- FAB ALLEY
Shorts- VERO MODA
Shoes- MAX FASHION INDIA
Necklace – LIFESTYLE

2) AS A DRESS-

In this look I simply made the top look like a belt by wearing a thin waist belt over the top. If the slit is too high for you, you can always use safety pins.
This dress can be paired with heels to give it a night gown feel. As you can add in some bling to boost your swag.

Here are the details of my second look:-
Dress- FAB ALLEY
Heels – JABONG
Necklace – BLING LANE
BELT- VERO MODA

3) AS A SKIRT-

Wear another top to cover the upper portion and use the lower portion as a long side slit maxi dress. I have accessoried this look with a scarf from accessorize. I tied the scarf around my neck in the form of a bow. This is a perfect date look.

Here are the details of my third look:-
Top- H&M
Skirt- FAB ALLEY
Scarf- ACCESSORIZE
Heels- JABONG

My favourite date Look !!

Hey everyone,

It’s never just dinner when you going to meet someone you are trying to impress. It is the second date when you want to be fabulous but not look like u r trying to hard. In that case go for this particular look!

image

So, here is how to play it cool!!

Dress:-

Wear a short dress, preferably black!! If you wear a Gaun it will be trying to hard. Don’t make it formal. Keep it as casual as possible. Black is the perfect choice of color as it is good for every occasion and makes everyone look perfect.

This is a little black dress is from CODE by lifestyle!!

image

Shoes:-

Wear Heels!!! A girl looks elegant, stylish, tall and invisible in heel. In order to play it cool don’t forget you are on a date and you are there to make a statement. Black or nude heels would be perfect. You can also wear red heels if you are planning on wearing red accessories.

image

Accessories:-

You want to be the one doing all the talking not your over the top accessories. Remember you are playing it cool. Wear a statement necklace or a pair of statement earrings. Wearing both a necklace and earrings can be a bad idea as it will shift all the attention to your accessories instead of your face.
This chunky bead necklace is from Accessorize.

image

Makeup:-

The makeup depends on the location of your date. Don’t forget to carry your compact and lipstick in your bag.
With this particular look I would never miss my bright red lipstick.
One of my favourite lipsticks is MAYBELLINE REBEL BOUQUET in shade REB04

image

And finally the thing you need to do is enjoy yourself!!! Have fun. Hope you find love!!

Hope I could be of some help and if you think the same don’t forget to leave a comment!!
