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.

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.
An ardent globetrotter is always in the search of some really comfortable clothes. And when we say this we also mean that it has to be uber chic and Instagram worthy.
Upon seeing the black crop top, the first thing that struck is to pair it with plain white shorts. Of course you can go with a distressed one too. This somehow gave a contented feeling that we wanted. To give it a smarter finish, we accentuated the whole look with a long denim shrug. And that worked wonders. The embellishments were kept minimal as the polka dots were the attention seeker.
You could also alter the denim jacket with a different colour or fabric that matches well with your shorts and top. If you too want to try this look for a short trip with your friends, then shop the look below:
Incorporating handlooms in traditional wear has always been an easier task and much favourable too. Whenever we think of handlooms, we tend to buy a saree or a kurta. And why not, after all in India, we get to see a lot of varieties when it comes to handmade clothing. Ace fashion designers too promote this manually operated loom on every fashion platform.
In our daily wear we love to subsume various varieties of handlooms to get the comfort from the fabric. Everything that is hand made has a different feeling and everyone loves it. However, the question arises. Can we even incorporate such fabrics in our daily routine? Would we able to manage? Of course! Why not! Gone are the days when handmade clothing only justified to conventional outfits. Designers, stylists and fashionistas keep encouraging to wear woven fabric globally. Various e-commerce sites have also taken up separate sections.
In this particular look, the colourful checkered pattern top is from the one of the most liked e-commerce fashion portals, Tata Cliq. It is bright, comfortable and yes handmade, giving it a very ‘loom’inous effect. While this could have been paired with black palazzo or ethnic skirt to give it a more traditional vibe, we thought keeping it basic and simple and went for plain white jeans. Wearing it with white jeans and heels renders more focus to the colourful top.
If you too are fond of this look, then give it a try!
