Get the look: Gigi Hadid for Tommy Hilfiger

Hey, I am back with another get the look. It’s rare for me to come across looks that are worthy of a get the look post. And when I do, it’s hard for me to resist.

I totally dig Gigi Hadid’s look for her Tommy Hilfiger photoshoot. She looks classy and young all at once! From the duster coat to the glossy booties this nautical themed look is perfection ❤ Here is how you can pull off this look without having to burn a hole in your pocket.

It’s hard to find a department store version of that perfect long coat that Gigi wore. But I found this one from Dorothy Perkins is as close as it gets.

Get the look: Parineeti Chopra in Gauri and Nainika

I adore what Parineeti Chopra wore to Sania Mirza’s book launch. Her Gauri and Nainika, feather print dress was a delight.

In terms of personal style, Pari has a long way to go when compared to her stylish counterparts like Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor. She is yet to figure out what she wants to project as a fashion idol.

Her look here however really worked for her personality. It is girly and sophisticated. It is minimal, and right on spot with the current fashion trend with it’s ruffled sleeves.

My advice to Pari is to keep it simple and ladylike as that is what works best for her. Preppy looks that work for Alia Bhatt or Shraddha Kapoor don’t do much for her.

The look is easy to pull off. So, here is how you can get your hands on this look:

Find a long sleeved white dress. Check this one from Harpa.

And pair it with vivid pumps like these from Carlton London.

And, you are good to go! Here is hoping to see more great looks from you, Pari!

5 Ways to look now!

There are new fashion trends and then there are those fashion trends that have made a comeback. Either way, what is the best way to flaunt the latest styles and manage to look like you have been styled by celebrity stylists? What does it take to define 2016 through our outfits? Here are some things that make up the fashion scene for the current decade.

1. Embrace woman empowerment

The current era is all about women empowerment. This has been getting reflected more and more in the fashion scene over time. We can spot celebrities make powerful statements rather than look plain feminine or dainty.

A woman’s strength has been coming through in so many ways. Defined shoulders, tailored trousers with dresses, structured jumpsuits, bold lips, etc., are all fashion trends that have subtly underlined women empowerment tagged to them.

So, don’t hesitate to take your pick of structured pieces for your wardrobe!

2. Adapt minimalism

Just like our smartphones and tablets that come with a single button, it is all about minimalism. Less is better, because Ease is the name of the game. No one has the time or energy to waste on piles and piles of accessories or layers.

A lot of our favorite celebs like Emma Watson, Kendall Jenner and Sonam Kapoor are making the headlines with  minimalism.

Take a leaf out of your favorite celeb’s book and wear that trendy white top over a pair of skinnies. Finish off with a statement jewellery piece for a casual outing, and you are good to go!

3. Go sleek

As technology continues to make the world a smaller place and the gadgets get sleeker, our fashion too has gotten sleek.

Try that clean cut jumpsuit or a neatly tailored trouser with that pretty dress. Make sure that your hair is smooth and sleek.

4. Cover up

Gone are the days when tight and short used to rock the scene. Throw those cringe worthy, tight, short clothes in the back burner. Skin show is passe. Highlighting your favorite feature of your personality is chic. Either go for a décolletage, bare those shoulders, try that thigh high slit or go for a cut-out top. Elegance is the key.

5. Get creative

Don’t hesitate to get creative. 2016 is about experimenting without going over board. Give that neon bright, kawaii bag a go! Or how about that cool body jewellery? Yes, go out of your way to try unique and stylish accessories!

The future of fashion is now and it’s time to embrace it in all it’s splendor!

Get the look: Sonam Kapoor In Harper’s Bazaar

I am in love with Sonam Kapoor’s looks for Harper’s Bazaar Bride, India, June-July 2016. Out of all her outfits I found this one to be fresh and interesting:

Move over dupattas, it’s time for jackets! I love how she styled the lehenga with a summery, flowy maxi jacket. It is a Minimalistic-Bohemian style! ❤ I think this is a wonderful idea for a friend of the bride to wear to a Mehendi or Sangeet cermony. A bride too can give this idea a try by going for bold colours and embellished jackets. Here are some of my picks that will help you rock this look yourself.
Find that pretty pastel coloured, high waisted maxi skirt. This one is from SVD ADA:

Look for a cute embellished white crop top that suits your taste. Here is one from Divaat:

Now for the most important part of this outfit. The jacket! Try to find a sleeveless, long, georgette printed jacket. If you can’t find a sleeveless one don’t hesitate to buy one with sleeves. You can chop off those sleeves later if you have to. Check out this one from Only:

Now if you want to make a real statement, bride or not, don’t forget that head accessory! This one from Amazon.in is cute for a friend of the bride:

Sonam Kapoor for Harper's Bazaar

 

The fact that the outfit is sugary, girly and airy has me swooning, because Indian wedding clothes are usually just the opposite. They are suffocating, heavy and bold. I think this look defines a trend for the upcoming wedding season. So gear up!
