2 ways to do the BLUES?

Is there an evergreen colour? Trust me it is B-L-U-E and not black! Well, this dynamic hue offers shades to choose from as per your mood and you can mix and match sky, navy, torquise,midnight and royal blues to define your personal style statement. Also,
it’s a cool colour to wear this summer whether you choose to go funky or feminine.
Here are the two ways to do the blues this season:

☆For Work
-Keep it simple and fuss free with an A-line dress of any length. It can take you from one meeting to another all day, even if you are travelling in this heat.
-Choose a breathable fabric like cotton or linen this season.
-Stripes are in fashion always and you can add a few nautical motifs too.
-As far as accessorising is concerned, keep it functional. A colourful sling bag can add a bit of spunk to even a work attire.

☆For Play
-A crop top, racer back singlet or even a smart t-shirt works. Make sure that it fits you well. Anti-fit styles are fun too when you team them up with fitted bottoms.
-Hot pants are really hot this season but wear the length that makes you feel comfortable.
-For accessories, add a cute bow and carry a back pack that’s trending currently.

And you are good to go…

Seriously wear comic prints now!!!

Comic characters might have fascinated you during your childhood days, now they can make you look fascinating. Get fashion forward and sport a cool and cute style statement by wearing outfits with comic book prints.
Here’s how to make them look wow on you:


# Select a bright base colour that you like, so that the prints stand out pretty.

#Opt for subtle and smaller prints so that they don’t overpower your look
# You can wear the same outfit to different occasions by simply changing around your hairstyle and accessory. Throw on a baseball cap for a change for the day or a pair of reflectors and carry a smart clutch for the evening.

#Keep the makeup simple yet sexy and the hairdo quite effortless to go with the mood.

WoW Ice Cream Time!!!

When you think of indulging and forgetting about calories…You can never have enough of ice-creams!!!
I had my share of ‘happy high’ digging into an innovative array of flavours at Papacream. This latest outlet in Mumbai does not only serve up exotic frozen desserts but also an experience worth savouring.

Here’s what makes it a WoW hangout:

1# The chocolate and fruit jelly combination of Sushi never tasted better. It is a must try platter and can be shared too.

2# The window décor of a cart wheel with jars of yummy toppings is quite inviting. It is also perfect for a photo backdrop to add onto the memories.

3# The service is quick and thanks to liquid nitrogen technology that makes sure that your ice-cream does not melt into a watery soup easily.

Wear stripes differently!!!

How innovative can you get with stripes, depends on you. So next time you decide to wear something semi-formal to work, ditch the stripped business shirt and opt for a smart dungaree instead. Here’s what I choose to do to make my weekday dressing different and feel wow even on a Monday!

# Team up a simple black and white stripe bottom-wear with a fresh green for a change.
A hint of fluorescent always has a fun and funky effect.

#Keep the mood casual chic with minimal accessories.

#Simple makeup and clean hairdo always works best to complement this street style effortlessly.
