Five Days Of Fashion..

The Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 is over and here is how we decided to keep it simple yet colourful this season, a round up of Five Days Of Fashion

Day 1: Nude is the new black!
There is a craze for nude shades since a while now. The same applies for us too. The beige knee length dress with abstract prints was one of the simplest options one could go for. It was breezy and comfortable. The pair of brown, feather earrings was just an option but it proved to be the only option that went best with the outfit. Beige coloured wedges and a maroon lipshade was all that was needed to complete the look!

Day 2: Black and white, done right!
The first thing that was in the mind was to ditch the heels. Lakmé Fashion Week calls for a lot of work and comfortable footwear is all that one needs. The focus was to work around a pair of simple black sandals. A basic black asymmetrical tee was the one we chose and tucked it with a pair of striped palazzos. Vertical stripes not only give a smarter look but also makes you look slimmer. Ending that with a silver statement neckpiece was all that one could do the best.

Day 3: Experimenting with basic colours!
A knee length magenta dress with a purple undertone was something that could be experimented really well. The first experiment was accessories and jewellery. A broad belt could flaunt your waist line. Otherwise beige heels would contrast really well with the colour of the dress. Ditching these two alternatives, we thought of accessorising with a multi coloured, beaded neckpiece. The necklace did not look that great at first but after wearing it with the dress, we came to know its worth. A purple lipstick was all you need to complete the look.

Day 4: That pop of colour!
There was this red floral dress in the wardrobe since quite a long time and we thought of giving it a chance. Pairing it with flats was one possibility of making it look different than one would usually think of working around with it. Completed it with a half, high pony to get that playful look.

Day 5: Black is back!
Needed to get the black back. Yes, black works wonders. It is the ultimate solution to all fashion problems. A black jumpsuit and black heels (less high, more comfort) was all that one needed. An LBD would otherwise be a great alternative to the jumpsuit but lets play with the legs. 😉
Did not want to do much but curl the hair to give the hairstyle a new angle. Black indeed is the saviour.

Friendspiration!

We are overwhelmed with the kind of support our friends have extended to us and are truly honored to share this special bond with them. Couple of days back, we did a blog on travel style and our friends have been gracious enough to share their personal style with us. Each of their look is an extended part of their personality and speaks volume about them. We will start with our personal favorite fashionista, Priti. She works with Deloitte where she is known to inspire people with her astounding sense of style. She puts her trust into classics. During her recent trip to Dubai, she swayed the locals with her on point dressing. Next is the woman who is closest to our heart, our Desi girl, Salakha. She is a true tester, fixing bugs professionally and also in her friends life. Her sense of style is completely opposite to her nature. The quirky prints and accessories, often overshadow her demure nature. We would now like to introduce you to our star Baker, Charul. A foodie at heart, she has converted her passion into a business. A true believer of the adage “Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes” . Riddhi is the wild child. Sexy, outgoing and lover of finer things in life. She can convert your home into a heaven with her designing skills. She is frequently seen experimenting with her clothing. What do we say about Richa. She is simple, sweet yet a fierce career women. Travel is her life. She has an effortless sense of style that mirrors her personality well.

A Bohemian twist of tale!

We all have been drooling over Anushka Sharma’s look in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. She is a diva, we all agree. Our favorite look is the one where she paired a white shirt with a brocade lehenga and accessorized it with a statement polki neckpiece. Don’t you think she looked drop-dead-gorgeous? The look has become a trend for all mehendi and sangeet functions.

We at Tea Time with Meeja thought of throwing some Bohemian twist to this ultra glamorous Indo-western ensemble. The one colour that comes to mind after white has to be black. The every day black shirt when paired with a sleek Bohemian skirt that complements the shirt beautifully, brings out the best in us for a casual lunch or a day out with friends. To replace the polki jewellery, we paired the outfit beautifully with a silver statement neckpiece. Silver and black are the best of friends after all. ; )

Carry your favorite nude shade bag or clutch and team up your look with your favourite flats or wedges. The whole look itself is so elegant yet glamorous that anyone would have the urge to try this atleast once. : )
