Keeping Cool

Hello dear readers ❤

It’s been a lazy couple of weeks, fitting the hot, lazy weather of Delhi.

Today I want to share a very casual yet chic outfit with you. It’s a cotton shirt and cigarette pants combination. Scroll below to see what makes it stand out 🙂

Full outfit:

(didn’t feel the need for footwear as this was an indoor shoot 😛 )

This blue shirt is quite versatile. It looks like denim but is cotton!

White pants are a summer essential – in fact, I wear them all year round! This one is a straight fit pair. I try to avoid a skinny fit 🙂

I quite love the colour combination – blue and white with a touch of silver and crystals. Easy on the eyes and very refreshing on a hot day!

This bohemian statement necklace helps amp up the outfit and you can go from shopping to lunching in the same thing! 😀

You can simply pair this outfit with flip flops or chappals while you run errands!

The hair bun gives a very clean look and keeps me cool outdoors (I think I should accept that this is my favourite thing to do to my hair – no fuss! 😀 )

Guest Post: Adding Subtle Glitter to Outfits!

Hello ladies!

Today, I bring you a guest post from the online apparel store, Indiarush! Indiarush has to share something interesting about wearing glitter. Here goes! 🙂

If you love creativity, this blog post will be very helpful to you! Here are some new tricks of adding glam and glitter to your wardrobe to make it party ready like never before!

These little tricks will not only save the money that you would have to invest in buying expensive clothes for yourself, but at the same time will also increase your creativity. So, go on and design something new for yourself with the following tricks:

  1. Take up the outfit that you wish to transform and give it a nice little makeover by adding sequined patch of yoke or patti on its sleeves. Even this minute change will enhance the entire appeal of your ensemble and will make it appear new! And if you wish, you can even put the sequined patch on the hemline.
  1. If you do not wish to work hard, you could play it a bit smart! You can go for a dupatta with beautiful sequins booti or motif work with a plain lehenga or salwar suit that you already have. This way, you can smoothly achieve a party ready look without much effort!
  1. While dealing with clothes that have metallic textures and colors, you must carefully choose a contrast of neutral colours like beige, cream, black and grey to come up with the best look! This way, you will be able to balance out a subtle yet shimmery appearance for yourself! You can also do this experiment with your sarees, too!
  1. Go for muted tones of sequin work on garments for getting the glitz and glam in a subtle manner. Always remember that too much glitter and sequins will spoil the ensemble!

I hope this post was helpful to you girls. I’m gonna try out these DIY myself! 😀

Until next time, love from Shruti  ❤
