Get Naughty With Neon

Get Naughty With Neon

Neon – Apparently, known as the electrifying trend of 80’s.  It can be loud and fun to wear though it can be little intimidating as well, especially when you are not open to experimenting with colours and trends.  Having said, every closet needs a splash of neon colour.  Hop on the neon bandwagon to get you started for the summer months. Whether it is your favourite jeans and tees or pleated skirts and blazers, there’s a light and bright option you’ll most likely adore!  Pay homage to this 80’s trend with the modern updates happening on the runways! On a promising note, if you don’t want to rock hot pink jeans or those daunting neon shoes, some neon jewellery is a fun way to get in trend without going overboard.  Adopt these old trends for a new ‘you’.  Get naughty with neon and let us know if its rad or bad!

Colour Me Neon

Ditch those neutral hues and corals for a bright neon dress/skirt to pull together a new season outfit.  Pair a neon skirt with a white tank top or any blouse in lighter shade and neutral hues.  Colour block dresses in sherbet-neon colours is ideal for any date you have planned this summer.  After all, who says you have to only wear one neon hue in each ensemble?  Dress down the outfit with minimal accessories and nude pumps!

Neon Jewellery

Sometimes, it is those little things that can make an outfit stand out. Neon jewellery is preferred on simple outfits. It’s a good idea to wear solids instead of patterns. You don’t want your jewellery competing with your neon skirt, thereby causing a neon clash. Having said, colour blocking is cool. You can pair your neon jewellery with bold blue earrings, or hot pink bangles with lime green watches. Try to get creative and try balancing things out to push yourself away from routine. Do not attempt to mix more than three colours at a time !

Neon Footwear

Neon soles are a good way to introduce your feet to the neon trend without the commitment.  Flats and pumps in neon add a dose of spice to your wardrobe.  From hot pink to neon green, slip into a pair of glary flats to make season brighter.  Embellished footwear spruce up the look few notches higher.  Wear them to a club or house party with a mini dress and tights, your jeans for that matter!

6 Must-have Wonderful Summer Skirts

6 Must-have Wonderful Summer Skirts

By Harriet D’Costa

Are you ready to dig deep into your wardrobe and explore the wonderful world of skirts? I am here to help you in perfecting the art of picking the right skirt for every occasion. You would find certain tried and tested ways of ‘getting it right’ all the time without much effort. All it needs is a thorough look into the mirror coupled with basic fashion logic and you‘ll end up adding many more skirts to your wardrobe, by choice. Don’t be confused, especially knowing that you have me by your side! Firstly, you should know that every body type is categorized into apple, pear, straight and hourglass shape. You need to identify your body type as there is a different skirt for each body type. Let’s have a look at kinds of skirts that would suit your style and body type.

A-line Pleated Skirt

This pretty turquoise skirt looks fabulous with this jet black crop top. I have added some bling to the look with help of a pink-blue stone studded neck-piece and a black sling purse embellished in golden lace and pink embroidery. Black box heel shoes add comfort to your feet and go well with this look.

Denim Skirt

Jeans skirts are ‘denim well utilized’. They are usually casual; with some of them plain and some embellished. Some are high-wasited whereas others are low-waist. Some have pockets, some don’t. When a stylist advices you to ‘always have a pair of demins’ they aren’t restricting your choices to only demin trousers. A demin skirt is equally a closet essential. Wear it out for a casual date with your gang of girls or simply to accentuate your ‘my-behind-couldn’t-be-more-in-shape!

This classic blue buttoned denim skirt teamed with lemon-yellow crop shirt looks elegant. You can pair it with cool blue sneakers and printed buckle bag.  I recommend you to keep the look simple with fresh yellow stone studs.

Gingham Wrap Skirt

If you have it and want to show it off, then wrap skirts are perfect for you. These skirts were a big hit in early 80’s. They have been designed, keeping your curves in mind. Available in many stylish fabrics, these skirts mostly have a wide band around the base and this is why slimmer ladies prefer it more than anyone else.

This black and white gingham wrap skirt accentuates your lower body. Wear it with a white top with frilly sleeves. I have vigilantly chosen footwear and accessories in colorful print for this look. Yellow-black wedges would look great when team with floral studs and classic clutch. Like the skirt but not sure about the colours? Have a look at the pink and green wrap skirts.

Circle Skirt

Circle skirts have a peculiar circular shape (could the guess be more obvious?). Generally made up of light fabric, most of them have some ruffled curves. It is ideal of all kinds of body types and this makes it an absolute wardrobe staple. Bigger hips look decently slimmer and small hips look wisely proportionate. The circular free flowing fall adapts to your body structure thereby giving you a look that is well balanced.

This black circle skirt looks great with this statement white printed crop top. Metallic studs add drama to the look. Wear classic black pump heels that add to the modishness of this look.

Floral Flared Miniskirt

Flared miniskirts are derived from the conventional A-line skirts. These skirts have all the peculiarities of an A-line skirt and emblematic minis. This type of skirt is best suited for the gals who consider their never ending long legs as their main attractive feature.

Flaunt your beautiful long legs with this multi-colored floral flared skirt. Team it with white-pink horizontal stripe crop top. Keep the look humble with pearl white wedges and blush pink earrings. A yellow sling bag with floral flap is ideal for carrying your essentials.

Can’t get enough of florals? Have a look at these gorgeous skirts and dresses.

Multi-colored Straight Skirt

Straight skirts come with a typical fit around the waist and hips. It keeps up to its name as it falls straight downwards. These skirts offer the comfort of a regular casual skirt and finesse of a pencil skirt. This type of skirt is ideal for those of you who want to try out skirts but aren’t confident about your legs.

This multi-coloured stripe skirt is dominated by all-things-colours. I have teamed it with a solid pink crop top avoiding any colour clash with the skirt. Keeping the colour dominance in mind, I have added studded earrings and a sling. A comfortable pair of flats is perfect for this look.

My take on skirts is that they are a cornerstone of fashion for women and have persistently evolved over the passage of time. And we have curated some of the most gorgeous summer skirts, just for you. Come look for the one you love the most!

DON’T OVERDO IT
Never let your mind skip the fact to keep your dressing simple and minimal. Yes, stay away from the glam, red carpet looks. Keep your sexy and elegant outfits reserved for dinner dates. For the movie date, start with pants. You can’t go wrong with leather as no matter what’s happening up top they make your outfit look all the more cool. To get spoilt by choices, you need some knee length skirts or dresses, opt for an A-Line style, tights and a cropped sweater or jeans which can be paired with a cute top or oversized button down which can be teamed with cuffs or some statement necklaces and bracelets.
