5 ‘Oh so Retro’ Trends to Borrow from the 70’s

The craze for fashion was on its peak during the 70’s. Perhaps, it was the era when women actually started keeping up with the latest trends. Wearing what’s ‘in’ was the trend during the 70’s. And the trend continues all the way to the post-modern era of fashion. While the fashion world has moved way ahead and new trends have been introduced to the industry, the retro re-runs will always be a part of progressing fashion. And to get that ‘oh so retro’ appeal, here are the five trends that are worth borrowing from the 70’s: 1. Monochrome Polka Dots

Polka Dots

Polka dots will remain an evergreen print. They were ‘the buzz’ during 70’s and they still enjoy the Read more

Here Is How Bollywood Celebrates Diwali In Style!

Glittering diyas and even brighter lehengas and suits; Diwali was a student affair for our B-Town hotties. From Shilpa Shetty’s Diwali party to the Big Bachchan’s Bash, stars marked their inevitable presence everywhere. Glimmering with delightful choices of attire, let me show you the fancy side of Diwali in lieu of our Bollywood favourites.

Picture Perfect

I had no idea that an all white attire could look that gorgeous and when you have someone like Kareena to match upto, you’ve got to up your game. Soaring high at Shilpa Shetty’s Diwali Party, this power couple totally rocked it. Kareena takes the trophy, undoubtedly, for her Sabyasachi creation and that entire traditional aura surrounding her.

Co-ordinated Much?

s-5_111015044929

Isn’t it cute when couples match their outfits? Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty did exactly that and took all the limelight. The Manish Malhotra lehenga looks sizzling on the host and her husband follows suit. Not to miss the flashy gold tribal tattoo on Shilpa’s arm- utterly sassy!

Here’s more from the party where Shipla and Raj proved to be great hosts!

Tarun Tahiliani for Sonam Kapoor and Rohit Bal for Karishma Kapoor, both of these ace designers created magic because our divas ended up looking nothing less than divine at Shilpa’s Diwali Party.

Coming to the Bachchan’s Big Bash, that was something no one could’ve missed! All the who’s who of bollywood were present there and it was a great night!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in All her Glory

Killing it in Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, Aishwarya looked nothing less than an angel. Neeta Lulla and her daughter too added truckloads of panache to the event.

Amidst all the glamour, Sonakshi Sinha, Preity Zinta, Hrithik Roshan, Simi Grewal, Tabu and many others enlightened the Bachchan house with their auspicious presence.

Apart from these big studded soirees, one thing cannot be missed- Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor! While promoting their film, Tamasha in Delhi, the duo celebrated diwali in top class fashion. They’re definitely our favourite onscreen jodi. And I have the biggest girl crush on Deepika because she is downright gorgeous!

Fashionista 101: Top 10 Fashion Movies

Fashionista 101: Top 10 Fashion Movies

Every fashionista must go through a training course of sorts. It starts in the younger years and develops as we get older. The required course includes a rigorous analysis of glossy mags, celeb style and of course, movies. We’ve all sat through a chick-flick and desperately wished we had a luxurious wardrobe just like our silver screen role models. The absence of money to buy a Channel tweed jacket at the age of 13 led us to daydream about the leading lady instead. Which basically meant her style, always her style – the exact flick of her cat-eye eyeliner, the precise messiness on her messy bun, the way she accessorized for a date with the hot male lead, and so on. You get the idea; the point was, we wanted all of it, especially the hottie.

If you are new bride-to-be, then you must check these 10 looks for the modern bride!

Whether they intend to or not, movies, of any ‘Wood’ have had the ability to influence our style choices in many ways. Be it a fashion biography or a film with a great costume designer, movies are always the easiest source of inspiration when it comes to style. So here’s a list of our top 10 picks loved by every fashionista!

 

Devil Wears Prada

It is quite literally impossible to not include this movie in the list. Miranda Priestly as the She-Devil incarnate and poor little Andy Sachs; a love/hate scenario ensues but that’s not the point. The point is the clothes! The tres chic clothes. Andy’s transformation from a normal city girl to a full blooded fashionista to Miranda’s love of Hermes scarves and her luxurious coats, this movie wins in every regard for us.

 

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A girl from a small town who envisions a comfy city life with a fabulous wardrobe – it’s the ultimate dream isn’t it? Tiffany’s might not be available to our fingertips (at this point) but we know we all wish for it, we all window shop and dream about “The Dream”. Seeing Holly Golightly trying to find love and fashion on a limited budget struck us all at our core because we’ve all been there. Knowing that we’re not alone in our hunt for love, money and good clothes made us love Ms. Golightly all the more.

Jane Austen. Sonam Kapoor. Abhay Deol. Clothes. I really don’t think I need to say more. But I will! On the matters of the heart, we might be a little (a lot) clueless but when it comes to the fashion…whoa, mama! Pernia Qureshi as the stylist brought about a huge change in when it came to costumes for the heroines. Long gone were the sarees and kurtas and ill-fitting outfits designed by the set costume designer. Aisha opened up our eyes to the amazing combination of vintage, couture, high-end and thrift.

Jab We Met

Here is a movie where we met the tadakti bhadakti Punjabi Kudi. At its time, this flick showed us that comfy clothes can be cool too. A long t-shirt and salwar – a dream come true for most girls. Add some desi bling to the outfit and you are ready to go. As soon as the movie hit the screens, the streets were hit with Patiala salwar and long skirts flooding every corner. This movie showed us the chill side of ethnic clothing like no other.

Clueless

clueless-pics-16-1

This one was the original 90’s take on Jane Austen’s Emma and spewed fashion galore for every girl back then. True, we didn’t have the money but we all wanted Alicia Silverstone’s wardrobe. The mix of vintage class and 90’s edge was absolutely perfect in this movie. Chanel tweed jackets and a mini skirt, I mean ‘Hello!’ could you get more chic? No, no you couldn’t. This movie made us want to be the coolest girl in school with the best style.

Sex and the City

Following Carrie Bradshaw and her posse’s love was a bang-on, satirical replication of our life, or what we wished our life was. The moment the show ended, we lamented its loss and its movie revival got our hearts beating all over again! A group of New York City girls on the big screen had us sitting on the edge of our seats for all the right reasons. The reasons being the clothes of course.

Annie Hall

Woody Allen is quirky enough to have us hooked on to his movies, but Annie Hall had something a little extra. Diane Keaton was the one of the first women who introduced androgynous dressing to the masses. It might have started out in the 70’s, but this is one trend that has stuck around till today. Equality and fashion working together at its best.

The Great Gatsby

gatsby
Image Courtesy: GoodReads

Everyone might not have read the book, but we all saw the movie. Leonardo and Big B aside, this movie had the best interpretation of period clothes. The 20’s was a radical age in terms of fashion, the world saw girls wearing knee length dresses, drop waists, and super chic headbands. A combination of Prada and Miu Miu dresses had us salivating for more. The “Roaring Twenties” were visualized for us in an epic format of clothes and style.

Pretty Woman

A street-side hooker turned sophisticated lady is kind of our dream minus the hooker part. Thinking about the scenario of a rich businessman taking on a personal prostitute out of boredom was a little weird but thankfully that is not the point we’re focusing on right now. Luckily Julia Roberts’ trashy chic is back in fashion now with cut-out dresses. But the long, elegant evening gown with a great necklace is something that will always be in style and will always be sophisticated.

Ram-Leela

What better way to end with than with an Anju Modi ensemble movie. At the end of the day, we all envisage ourselves in an eye-catching ethnic outfit flirting with our crush of the moment (without the gun). The workmanship is a guarantee with the designer at hand but also the cut, the flare, and the makeup, we wanted it all. Wedding and party goals were all about getting the same lehenga style or as close as we can get with Chandni Chowk.

Why You Should Rediscover Khadi…

Why You Should Rediscover Khadi…

It is time to let the cat out of the bag; in this case it is time to get your khadis out of the bag, closet, trunk where all the old junk is stored or head over to your mom’s to dig some more. Why? Because it is time to rediscover Khadi!

Khadi or Khaddar as it was known was not just a homespun cloth but a complete movement in itself that helped us establish our own ideology, self-reliance, and independence from the British Colonizers. While the movement created a huge furor and evoked a sense of national pride, it slowly slipped out of the mainstream fashion scene. It was left to the arty-types, the ones who were mainly seen in cultural set-ups such as offbeat filmmakers, politicos, artists, painters etc. to appreciate the worth of this woven wonder.

But now our very own Khadi is making waves internationally. And this comes as no surprise as Khadi was and is a versatile cloth; keeping one cozy and warm in winters, and cool in summers. The whole world, especially leading Indian fashion designers, are putting together their creative prowess to re-invent Khadi.

Seen here is actress Sonam Kapoor strutting in a gorgeous Khadi designer outfit at the IIM Campus in Ahmedabad. This fashion show was the second edition of FDCI and Gujarat State Khadi and Village Industries Board’s initiative to support and promote khadi, titled ‘Huts To High Street’, furthers the cause to make the fabric  relevant. Designers like Rohit Bal, Rajesh Pratap, 11.11 and Pero shared their vision for this indigenous fabric.

So as we continue to drool over Ms. Kapoor’s outfits (designed by Rajesh Pratap), we need to come up with ideas to reinvent the Khadi in our own wardrobes. Kurtas, sarees, dupattas, heavy traditional clothes in Khadi silk etc. are pieces that rarely go out of fashion. But why leave Khadi out of our daily equation? To help you sort out this dilemma, we at LimeRoad have selected a few interesting Khadi pieces for you:

3. Plan the Karva Chauth menu: As per the tradition, women are supposed to eat delicious food items at dawn i.e. before sunrise, when the stars are still there in the sky (taaron ki chaaon mein). Items like parathas, phenia, milk and a mouth-watering sweets are generally eaten. So plan the menu in advance so that you can go shopping to fetch all the ingredients well ahead of the main day.

4. Prepare items in advance: Once you have decided on the menu and done a bit of shopping, prepare and ready some items which have a longer shelf life. For example, grind the chutney, keep the mathris ready a day or two in advance (many ladies prefer to have the traditional mathris as their first morsel when they break their fast).

5. Increase fluid intake: Grandmas and old aunts always mentioned to increase the intake of water and liquids the night before and during the early morning eating session so that you can manage the whole day without water. So keep tea, water or any juices handy so that you are comfortable the whole next day.

6. Call your best friends over: Be mentally prepared; the hunger pangs are going to trouble you on the main day. To keep your mind occupied and boredom at bay, call your besties. Plan some fun group games so that you all can have a fun time together.

7. Thali Decoration Competition: A decorative thali is an extremely important element of this festival. This puja thali called ‘Baya’ and contains key elements like earthen clay pots, sweets, vermilion, sacred water. So while you catch up with your gang, why not plan a ‘Thali Decoration competition.’ Give your imagination a creative flight and let’s all come up with the most awesomely striking and pretty thali. Keep some goodies and gifts handy to award the winner of the best-looking thali.

8.  One on one with Mom and Mom-in-law: Remember to discuss the traditional nuances and minute details with the bosses of the Family – Mom and Mom-in-law. This will ensure that you are on the right track and match up to their high expectations. Don’t miss out on discussing the lovely goodies that Mom-in-law has decided to include as a part of your ‘Sargi.’

9. Remind your dearest husband to be home early on that day. It’s a weekday this year, so remind him to be there on time. As you already have to wait for the moon to make an appearance, the last thing you want is to wait for him too!

10.  Throw subtle hints: Dying to make that beautiful necklace or lavish sari your own? Karva Chauth is the best time to ask for it. Throw subtle hints at your husband indicating your liking for them. If he is smart enough, he will read through them and that most desired gift will be yours on this special day. Alternatively, you may also buy him a special present, one that speaks volumes of your love for him.

11. Reserve the evening for that special candle-light dinner date: If you decide not to spend the evening in the kitchen rather make reservations for that special dinner date with your soul mate. Spend some quality time together and make it an evening to remember.

12. Keep the camera up and running: Remind your husband to keep the camera ready so that you guys can capture some of the beautiful moments of your togetherness. These priceless moments will act like cherished memories in the years to come.
