Magic of Monochrome

Magic of Monochrome

By Anu Upadhyayula

What does monochrome mean? It means “one color”, so you can match a blue skirt with a top in a lighter blue for example. Choosing your outfits is infinitely easier when you stick to a monochrome wardrobe. Monochrome is just gorgeous, flattering and different without being risqué. It almost suits everyone and adds formal touch to any outfit. This look is on the trends chart this year and is not fading out any time soon. Nevertheless, it is believed to spin magic. Apart from fabrics, bags and statement jewellery are no less to adapt this monochrome trend. Ditch the glittery and pop coloured accessories for this monochrome arm candy, just for the sake of it. It simplifies outfit planning and is an outstanding classic. Let’s look how this long-time fashion staple can be dressed up!

Celebrate Republic Day with LimeRoad

Celebrate Republic Day with LimeRoad

I am a born patriot and love to display the spirit of patriotism by not only dressing up in style but also in sync for events as important as the Republic Day. It is amazing to see women in our nation hurrying to buy tricolor clothes and accessories for events of national importance. Some of us plan what to wear whereas others just pick things up on the go.

The ones who do not have anything specific planned look for ways by which they can imbibe the tricolor style into their wardrobe at the eleventh hour. Keeping these sentiments in mind I have designed several personalized looks for everyone ranging from planned princess to last minute queens.

Single shades

Outfits in single shades depict a sense of determination. Solid single shades of the tricolor can make you look ravishing. A simple short dress in white can make you look like a million bucks. Pair this dress with junky necklace in saffron and multi-color neon wedges.

Tricolor Shades

If you don’t want to miss out on any of the tricolor shades, then a subdued green kurta with white detailing can help you integrate most of the shades in one dress. Wondering how would you accommodate saffron in your look? Don’t worry; saffron kolhapuri chappals would fulfill your wish to sport the tricolor shades in one outfit.  Pearl jhumkas would look perfect and go well with this outfit.

Classy Kurta

The footwear has great resemblance with the dress as it sports a zari patch that is quite similar to the one on sleeves.

Evergreen stripes

Neckpieces are back and how! Floral, geometrical, tribal, abstract and there’s more. The great thing about statement neckpieces is that they don’t need to be accompanied by several other items.

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”- thus said the iconic Marilyn Monroe! Dare we say she was wrong!

Surely a li’l dose of bling and a jolt of colour can do no wrong! Selecting the right pair of shoes is extremely important, especially when we’re discussing weddings here! Taking it for granted that you’ll be all dressed up in the heaviest of clothes; lehengas, salwar, sarees et al, pay heed to your footwear too. We surely don’t want you to end up with sore feet at the end of the day! Stick to usual wedding hues in footwear such as silver, gold or even cream. These generally go with any wedding outfit, so you’re spared the trauma of looking for a new pair for each outfit of yours. A thoughtfully chosen pair will take care of all your footwear worries. bejwelled pumps

  1. Phone Covers:

Phones now RULE our lives, don’t they? Love them or hate them, you simply can’t do without them! We don’t think twice before splurging a bomb on high-end, fancy phones. It’s time we pay heed to keep them safe and secure too! Invest in a delectable, colourful one to draw attention from all quarters. Go for safer, not-so-shocking prints at a wedding! Play with colours instead. Go all out and infuse some vibrancy with a multi-hued phone cover. Afterall, Indian weddings are all about colours and royalty. Aren’t they? Let your outfits and accessories play along!

Mum’s the Word

Mum’s the Word

By- Niyati Talwar

Mum's the word

Image Courtesy: hungryforchange.tv

You might be 3, 30 or 60, but you need your mother. You fight with her, you have your differences but the bottom-line is that you love your mum. Our mothers do so much for us-be it diaper duty, happy-note lunch boxes, driving us to our oh-so-important parties and protecting us from every ugliness and potential pain in life (read dad’s upsets over marksheets and our self-destructive life decisions). Though you often forget, often being the operative word here, somewhere deep inside you know you would be nothing without her. I mean, come on, I know our generation. We would be perfectly happy to live off in a pigsty, binge on junk food, and never find life goals if we don’t have her continuously poking, scolding, prodding and inspiring us to get off our lazy bottoms.

Unfortunately, we are unconsciously lax in appreciating the woman who has given us her everything. Don’t look for reasons to spoil your mum; you know how much she deserves it. It’s not only you who likes presents. It will be more heart-warming if you give her something without an occasion. Its time you revisit your Ps and Qs and spoil your mum a bit. Here’s a little help for you.

Flowers

FLowers-a perfect gift for your mum
Flowers-a perfect gift for your mum

I am sorry but, I had to start with the obvious. Every time I and my brother start planning a surprise for our mum, my brother’s first suggestion is ‘Let’s get her some flowers’! Every single time! I know all women love hearts and flowers. But, still! A little innovation and variation would go a long way. If you are bent upon giving her flowers, because of your tight budget or muddled head, at least do it in style. Instead of ordering and delivering a bouquet of the expected roses, give it a personal touch. Like hiding her favourite flowers around the house and letting her find them one by one as she proceeds with her chores with a sappy, sweet note attached to each. It will give her perfect, aww moments throughout the day.

All those (rich people) who have by-passed their awkward teenage and struggling twenties to amass a hefty fortune (congratulations!). News flash… you are still your mother’s kid and she still loves you. You are not where you are today without several mighty pushes from her so it’s time to spend some of those dollars on a personalized gift for your mother. Why personalized, you ask? Because that woman went through terrible PERSONAL pain and discomfort to first bring you to this world and then raise you into what you are today.
Get her a charm bracelet with some special ‘mom-and-you’ moments or maybe a lovely brooch. Did I mention that diamonds are a woman’s best friend? Just saying…

Bags

A bag is a perfect gift. A woman can never have too many bags. Just understand her style and her needs before you order one for her. Observe her schedule and see if she needs an office bag, a shopping tote or maybe an evening clutch. Then go all-out to give it a warm touch by stuffing it with some nice surprises or with a ‘something-special’ chain for the zip closure.

Find the ‘it’ bag for your mum on LimeRoad.com

Evening wear

Let’s admit it people. A woman can never have too many clothes. So even if you think your mom is single-handedly equipped to finance the textile industry, it is still never reason enough not to splurge some of your savings on some stellar sarees for her. We suggest, you go all out with some dazzling evening drapes in her favourite colour with maybe a pre-paid dinner reservation at her preferred restaurant.

Come on people, we owe our mothers our existence. A little gratitude won’t go amiss. Which means, you need to start saving! If mum’s the word for you too then here’s wishing you and her, a very Happy spoiling…

By Aishwarya Thapa

It is a well known fact now that bags are an important component of our outfit. After deciding what to wear, comes which shoes and then, which bag? First day of work, first day at college, weekend getaway, world travel – at least once does your mind start to wonder and possibly worry – which bag?
Now, of course, before fashion comes function. There are enough bags created, manufactured and sold today that can accommodate every event, use and need of ours. Here’s our list of a selection of bags that every girl must own.
Work Bag – Tote
Bags we carry to work can do two things – transport work material like diaries, files and maybe a laptop, as well as give your colleagues a strong insight into your personality. The best bags to use for work are totes; depending on your personal style try a structured tote or a non structured one. Totes are ideal to carry work stuff in, you could sneak in some files, a tablet, along with your everyday necessities like make up kits, a book, or even an extra tee to change into for your casual evening out.

Work Bag- Tote

Party Bag: Crossbody, Clutch
If it’s a fancy party, where you just have to look your best and socialize, and simply need a bag to match your new designer outfit – the clutch is yours. It’s small, neat, and the designs available nowadays can even one up your dress. In fact, we encourage this, pair a simple dress with an uber stylish bag and your look is done.
But if it’s a night out with your friends and you’re going to a high end club to drink and dance, then what are you going to be busy holding, your drink, your arm candy or your clutch? This is when you turn to a side sling or crossbody bag. It’ll hold your essentials in there – wallet, phone and lipstick. All you have to do is hang it on your shoulder and enjoy.

Casual: Hobo, Drawstring

This one everyone probably already owns, but we’ll tell you what’s trending right now. It’s that everyday bag that you can take to anywhere, be it college, a movie, shopping spree or the beach. It’s got to be comfortable to carry around, should be versatile enough to carry stuff depending on the destination and it’s got to match your casual look.
The most common one is the hobo, the loose, ball of a bag that you don’t mind carrying around on your shoulder for hours and can fit anything you need.
But another one of our favourites is the drawstring bag; it gives you the option to split the weight on both your shoulders and doubles up as a really cute fashion apparel.
