Raiding my mother’s closet has a charm of its own. No amount of shopping from a designer label will give me as much happiness as re-inventing something from my twin’s (my genes have taken the phrase—Like mother like daughter, very literally) vintage collection.

 

One fine day, a long long time ago, a Rajasthani sleeveless jacket from my mom’s closet, featuring intricate mirror work and embroidery, met my eyes and I knew exactly what needs to be done with it. I snipped out the back of it completely and cut the neckline according to its mirror work and—Voila! Another vintage jacket bites the new age dust! In my defense, at least I made a good use of it. I packed this top for a great adventure in Gokarna (travel blog soon to follow). A pair of sturdy, ripped shorts and a big desi tote bag made this look just right for the new form of my mom’s vintage top.

 

Not Your Basic Desi

Have you ever done some experiment with your mom’s closet? I can’t wait to hear it. Go on, inspire me!

Layering is love. It sure is a tricky trend to master because you can either hit the spot or go a little too wrong. It doesn’t matter what your body shape is but how you layer it, is what makes all the difference. Allow me to take you back to a beautiful day where my team and I shot this editorial consisting of an exquisite Kasmiri work cape and a short brocade jacket.

A simple trick to layering: If you are bottom heavy then a long cape will only complement your curves and if you are bottom skinny then you can flaunt a short jacket that ends at your waist.

And if you’re more like me; make-your-own-fashion-rules kinda gal, then just go creative with all the jackets and cape in your wardrobe. You can make an outfit casual or formal, sexy or covering with just the right kinda layering element.

Want more inspiration in layering? See how other fashionistas are rocking this age old trend.

1. Layer with a skimpy crop-top over a plain white shirt.

2. Loosely hang your leather jacket over your shoulder for a chicer look.

3. Mount a loose cardigan over a denim shirt to complete your OOTD.

4. Or an XL sweater over a printed shirt to add some uniformity to the look.

So hope these tips inspired you to go forth and layer away that outfit. Comment below and tell me if you need some inspiration to rock any particular trend and I’ll have a great excuse to shoot soon!

#So Laid Back


So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back

Photography: Rishabh Maliwar || Bralette : Zivame | Singlet: Colaba Causeway | Belt: H&M | Jeans: Forever 21 | Shoes: Adidas Superstars

Impromptu shoots are the best! And yes, this too was one of those spur- of-the-moment kinda shoots. If you follow me on my social media, you’d actually witness the fun we had shooting this look. From endless laughter due to uncomfortable posing (I don’t know how Kim Kardashian does it!) to squinting eyes due to the harsh sunlight, this shoot was such a delight! Also, because my photographer Rishab is the sweetest guy ever!

Coming to the look, a straight up casual OOTD consisted of a pair of trusted denims with a boho-printed singlet over a bralette. A black belt and a pair of cool kicks were just what I needed to accessorise the look for the day. Such a sporty meets sexy kinda look is the safest bet for a Friday, I’d say. So tell me how much you liked this look by commenting below.

xx until next time!
