Classic Summer Look for Men

{T-shirt - Forca, Jeans - Levis, Shoes - Forever 21, Bracelets - Aldo}

The weather has been acting up really bad for a past couple of days in Delhi. It rains one day and then it is terribly hot and humid. From fashion perspective, it is really confusing what to wear because it may just start to drizzle any time of the day. For men, I feel the classic combination of denims and white t-shirt is the best way to go for a relaxed and cool look.

Aman pulled this look together one day for going out for some shopping and to the movies and I knew I had to share it on the blog. It is a very guy-next-door kinda look, easy to pull together for absolutely ANY guy. Who doesn't have a pair of favorite blue denims and a simple white t-shirt! I really liked it that Aman played it up in the footwear department by wearing a monochrome patterned espadrille along with the layered bracelets. The whole outfit is quite muted when it comes to color palette but the patterned shoes and the bracelets add character to the whole outfit. Definitely the perfect Summer outfit!

Makeup Breakdown: Red pout

Hey friends!

I have been getting queries for makeup breakdown on few of my recent selfies so I decided to do a complete post on it. Most of you know, how badly I was sunburned in May and it took me 4 de-tan facials to somewhat match my foundation shade which I had purchased right before I got all burned up. But thankfully, the facials and staying indoors helped me to get back to my original shade in 2 months and just in time for one of my closest friend's wedding. 
The look for which I am doing the makeup breakdown:


In the pictures above, I am wearing the same makeup but with different attires. The left one is from an event that happened in Mumbai a couple of weeks ago and the one on the right is from my friend's Sangeet ceremony. Pardon me for using pictures clicked by my phone in these posts but these are the only pictures I have as I was not carrying my SLR for this trip.

The Shift Dress


{Dress - Femella, Necklace - A jewellery shop from my hometown, Shoes/Midi Rings/Ear cuffs - Forever 21, Clutch - Kunst, Cuffs - H&M}

A Shift dress is one of the wardrobe essentials as it flatters almost all body types and is suitable for many occasions if styled correctly. It came into the world of fashion in late 1950s and since then has been shifting its way through every era and it still holds it's ground when so many trends and styles have come and gone! Recently, I have grown an affection towards them as they are easy on the comfort level and high on style scale. This shift dress is my favorite of the lot that I have acquired recently. It's soft pale pink color looks very chic and sophisticated and the shoulder cut flatters my shoulders in the best way possible. This shift dress from Femella features a racerback and a layered look which adds more design elements to a simple dress.

I decided to style the dress in a more sophisticated way than I would any other shift dress as the color of the dress spells sophistication. Pairing it with a kundan necklace and a gold cuff, I kept the accessorization minimalistic yet bold. These two pieces of jewelleries were more than enough to complete the look. The shoes were a classy pair of suede heels and the hair was also done in an updo to maintain the classic and elegant look I was going for. This dress can be styled in so many different ways, the possibilities are endless. I can already imagine myself styling it in at least four more different ways, maybe one can be with sneakers for a super casual/relaxed look!
