Contrasting Changes. This is what i love about fashion!

Nothing can replace the fit of a good denim. The skinny,  tappered, boot-cut and so on, we can still sleep in them! But, this was only until I tried on a pair of slouchy high waist pants! And ever since, my denims are asleep in the wardrobe!

High waist pants. Slouchy or skinny; straight or drapped; stiff or soft; they are amazing! Psst psst…when styled smartly, they compliment every body-shape!

Team it with a crisp cotton shirt and thin belt for that formal look. Or wear it with pretty chiffon or cotton tops for that casual day look. Or dress it up with silk ruffled top or Balmain jackets for the ever stylish evening look! Long simple chains or a big bracelet. Heels or two-toned shoes. Clutches or sling bags! However you style it, sophistication would be personified!

Sonam Kapoor always gets it right!

Sonam Kapoor, Bollywood’s fashionista, loves high waist pants. A floral top or a statement necklace or a slouchy jacket, it looks chic in every way!

tempted to try? borrow your boyfriend’s or dad’s formal pants and give it a try! They’d never doubt you when it goes missing from their wardrobe! 😉

Yellows graced the summer while Reds ruled the fall. Blues came and went by. Though Blacks and Whites remain eternally classy, the royalness associated with GREEN always remains in vogue!

Be it Angelina Jolie’s emerald jewellery at the Oscars 2009 or Aishwarya Rai’s saree at the Cannes 2010, green has been worn gracefully at various red carpet ceremonies in many different ways!

Green can teamed with pastels, greys, blacks, nudes and even some bright colours for that extravagant elegance! Bags, shoes, belts, hats and other accessories in green are a piece of attraction at all times!

Here are a few greens that have caught my eyes.

Sometimes, accessories are regarded as the ‘full-stop’ in a fashion statement (pun intended)!

From hair-bands to wrist watches to belts to toe-rings, accessories can transform an outfit altogether!

One such accessory that’s back in vogue is a brooch. Hand-made ones, metals, strings of knotted ribbons, cluster of safety-pins etc have been used innovatively to add that extra zing to the outfit!

Button of your denim or shirt broke out? Fix it with a brooch! Use it on clutches or belts. Pin it to hair-braid or stick it on your flats. Wherever, the brooch will do the talking!
