Vintage Colours

And spring is finally here! Though a little early but I am not complaining. By far my favourite season because of the beautiful ambience, vibrant clothes, pleasant days - to summarize in one word, AMAZING! 
Fall was all about voluminous shapes in form flared jeans, culottes & ponchos. Carrying forward the trend for spring are the Bell Sleeves! This 70s silhouette adds the perfect drama to your attire.

For this look I chose to go for a sleeker yet sculptural version of the bell-sleeve renaissance. The all over print & scalloped V-neck back added an understated glamour! Tucked into a maxi skirt to define the waistline, I loved how the look ended up to being so vivid & perfect for spring. This mustard skirt was a sale steal (psst.. just for Rs 800) and will definitely be my go-to piece this season. 
Keeping it minimal with accessories, paired these dainty Aqua earrings for a clean finish. Finally a messy side bun and coral glossed lips because I have taken a break from mattes!

Warm Tones

When it comes to choosing an outfit in cool or warm tones, I always tend to go for latter! Colours like rust, camel & yellow not just suits my skin tone but also gives a refreshing & bright touch to a sombre wardrobe.

This utility jumpsuit has been one of my best sale picks this year. The slouchy fit, the colour & the details, everything screams street style. Said to be a daunting piece to pull off, according to me a utility jumpsuit is versatile and pretty much flatter every body type!  
I always prefer easy styling over the complicated unrealistic ones! Coming to the outfit, I styled this piece on the elegant lines & added a printed monochrome over-sized scarf and a sleek Hamsa chokar. Despite being unstructured, the nipped in waist accentuated the shape & gave a more polished look. Did a high -low mix and paired it with these heeled ankle boots. A quirky pair of sunglasses added a flare to the whole outfit.

Tribal Essence

There comes a time when you feel like dressing up unconventional! Experiment with accessories, colours, and end up creating a look that is different from general days. That's how this look came about. If I define my personal style, it's more of easy-chic whereas for this look I played with bold accessories over subtle colours.
So I wore this ribbed midi dress and layered a long sleeveless blazer over it. Where on one hand the dress fitted like a glove, the blazer gave a structure to the whole look. Accentuated the waistline with the help of a belt.
To uplift a plain attire instantly one should simply team it up with alluring chunky accessories. I wore a beautiful coin and tassel statement neckpiece and multiple amorphous rings. These tribal-inspired pieces added drama & deco.  Completed the ensemble by adding these mid rise black stilettos & a box clutch. Pulled the whole look together with light make-up & half-tie hair. And well those three dots on the chin were to go…


Why fashion blogging? 
So this is my first "not just a personal style post"! Sharing few reasons, instances & even hurdles that led me here. Even though there is still a long long way to go, but I thought this is best time when I can have a little heart to heart conversation with you.

My love for fashion began in sixth grade, when I told my mom that I wanted to be Miss India. She obviously didn't take that seriously & without any guidance I couldn't have achieved that, and eventually that dream could not be fulfilled! Fast forward to 2010, during my second year in Mass Comm., I gave my second attempt for NIFT. I really wanted to do Fashion Communication & when I was least expecting it, I got through! But I chose to skip it because being a graduate by 2012 sounded more exciting than being in a college for next five years.

I graduated, started working & it was only in 2013 when I encountered IMBB and realized that something called 'fashion blogging'…

Delightful Contrast

Talking about preference, as the heading gives out hint, there is a disparity of the colors that we choose for our outfits! Where I keep black & grey highlighted, she walks ahead with olive green & rust. Coming to the post, we shot this on the bank of Kosi River, a beautiful sight at Jim Corbett! Definitely a must visit since it has this vintage bridge amidst the mountains as the backdrop, perfect place if you love getting clicked.

Keeping it casual, Garima decided to wear a sleeveless cape layered over a basic tee. Paired it with rust denim, rolled up at the hem for a cropped effect! The statement earrings with Turquoise drops added tinge of charm to the whole look.

While I chose the elegantly classic way & paired an oversized fuzzy jumper along with a pencil skirt! Added a beige infinity scarf, not just for the much needed warmth but to give a fun element to the ensemble. Finally maroon ballet flats & a cutesy clutch to break the monotony of the look.
