How to Style the Same Dress Differently Using Jackets? (About OOTD, Jackets and Swag!)

Hello there Divas!

Hope my lovely ladies have been doing awesome! For me I had the most surprisingly amazing yet busy two weeks. Pre-Rakhi was all about shopping for gifts, outfit of the day and matching jewelry. Rakhi was all about getting all dressy, celebrating the day with my oh-so-notorious brothers (I am the eldest one, even among the cousins) and getting fatter with all those chocolates and gulaab jamuns and rasgullas. #NomNom Then Post-Rakhi was all about shopping out of the cash I received (God I love Rakhi! ). This year was indeed special for me. How about you ladies? Do share how did your Rakhi go this year.

I love a pair of sexy heels with jeans, a nice jacket, or a little dress.

THE IDEA: The other day I met a friend from school after about a year and a half. The long conversations about catching up and more touched one important topic. So we were discussing (secretly jealous of the fact that even if they change the shirt of the suit it’s counted as a new dress. Change the shirt in that tux and they are good to go. But women, well they get noticed. And scanned. It’s hard to repeat a dress unless some major changes are done.)

I have been asked a lot about how to recycle the same dress and yet look fabulous. And this post will help you with that. Here I have used the same dress but all I have done is played with the jackets a little.

The Classic Dinner Jacket: So I had to go to this birthday dinner (my own, and had been planning for it since a month) and I had this really beautiful dress I had purchased from #VeroModa (I got a great deal on Jabong). I always had a thing for oversized jackets. So when I saw this Boyfriend Blazer on StalkBuyLove, I knew it that these two will make a great pair {ironic for a hopeless romantic yet single like me to get things paired up, but at least my dress has someone #ChandlerBing #ForeverAlone #Jokes}. But yeah I do justice to the matchmaking, so yayyy! #LOL

2. Here Comes the Faux Leather: Now when I was done being all goody goody and want that swag back in my look, all I did was tweak one simple thing: take the good girl boyfriend blazer off and put on the brown leather jacket. Now I am against animal cruelty, so i have used faux leather material instead. #Peace #BanAnimalCruelty [Note: I haven’t thrown away the already existing leather in my wardrobe, but I am not buying anything new, so if you see any Clark’s in the upcoming posts, please don’t judge].

Well well turns out the sassy brown swag worked better for me, so I decided on putting more pictures of the same (Partial to jackets). The series goes with a story to tell. [My not so swag self tried out something].

Style up ideas: Five Closet Essentials for Summer 2016

Style up ideas: Five Closet Essentials for Summer 2016

Hello Divas! Hope you all are doing great!
As summer has brightened, so has the desire to have a perfect summer collection. Lucky for us, this season is all about colours, and colors are what we love! Although there are millions of ways to style up and unleash your inner diva, I have summed up the five closet essentials of Summer 2016.

Here are the 5 closet essentials for summer 2016:
1. Scarves: Always carry a scarf before you go out in the sun. Scarves not only protect your skin from the scorching heat, but also styles up your outfit. Play with the colors, go chic with the beautiful designs. So for those road trips you take, just wear your shades, throw on your sexy scarf over your favourite tank top and denim shorts, and you are good to go!

 

 

 

Scarves are an instant hack to your overall look

2. Dresses: The best thing about dresses is that you don’t have to spend a lot of time deciding on how to pair two pieces of clothing. It’s the most time saving piece of fashion. And above everything else, they are oh-so-comfortable. Plus they look cute! You may pair them with your favorite heels, or simple flipflops, or follow the latest trend and wear them with heels. So go ahead and get yourself that dress you always wanted to wear. Dresses are a strict closet essential for summer2016.

3. Denim: You can never go wrong with denim. As they say, when in doubt, wear denim. Denims are a rage this season. Not only because they are super comfortable, but also because they are not available in super sexy forms. Go rugged, denim on denim,  denim on dress, denim on short or anything your style sense asks you to do.So what is it for you this summer? Denim Shorts, or shrugs or shirts, or simple jackets?

4. Swimwear: With great summer, comes the fab swimming season. This is that time of the year where you can flaunt your curves with the perfect swim wear. Be it a two piece or a body suite that you might want to embrace this summer, Thanks to the growing fashion industry, we now have the sexiest range of swimwear and beachwear. You may even pair your bikini tops with shirts and shrugs. Happy tanning!

5.Skirts: There cannot be anything more feminine than a perfect pair of skirt. Do some wild experiments and go crazy with the mix and match. You can never go wrong with a red lipstick, to complete your look. Long, short or medium, you may never go wrong with skirts. Long, short, mid-length, choose your length, build up your style and bam we have a diva!

 

The idea is to have fun while experimenting with your looks. The only rule for Fashion 2016 is that there are no rules. And if you need any help with shopping, you may always ping me here. Just follow your heart, do what you like, wear what makes you feel sexy, feel awesome. Wear your best smile, and spray some inner confidence, and you are good to go! And if you need any help with, A.L.’s right here for you!
