Jugni's Take Style

Bold & Blue.


While we have to attend certain parties, dine and wine at certain gatherings the heart would rather embrace its blue, pick up the heels and walk into the room.

Yes, we’d put our make-up on, we’ll even look the way you would want, we’ll walk down that lobby and be there to party.

But when all we’re feeling is blue, it will be hard for you to not notice too.

Here’s to the nights that we regret the next day.

Here’s to the champagne you didn’t like anyway.

Here’s to being Bold when all you needed was to cry.

Here’s to the gown that gave you the power to at least try.

Step on those painful heels, step into the ballroom & win the hearts of all.

Girl, you are the charm of the party, the onlookers’ delight. Be the life of the night.

Come here you, be bold even when you’re immersed in blue.

Off-the-shoulder, trend that’s here to stay!

You might think that you saw too many, but don’t you find it very difficult to stop yourself from buying one more? The 90’s inspired Off-shoulder trend looks like it’s here for a while. So read on and prepare to stock up!

Planning and shooting to put up posts is not half as easy as it looks. It requires us to wake up on holidays at wee hours in the morning, to catch the perfect light, draw the perfect liner while barely being able to open my eyes, and oh the struggle in location scouting. Luckily my super-team Sakshi Nahar & Sahil Shah found this amazing spot in Pune. at 7am, with these bright outfits and the killer mausam, this spot worked beautifully for us. Can you guess the location?

If you have been following Jugni & Co. for some time you should have noticed the increasing number of times we featured the colour yellow as an absolute must have! We’re back at it. This time the trending colour with the classic off shoulder. Hope you like what you see. Besides which when we put together our spring summer trend book, we just couldn’t miss out on shades of green.

More on greenery and the Pantone shade of the year 2017 real soon. Till then, scroll down and maybe head to Samshek to shop now!

While I am planning to host a special giveaway for you with Samshek, they are getting ready to stock up on their spring summer collections on their website for all of us.

#BringTheKurtaBack – Styling your favourite kurtas in simple new ways.

Remember how there was this whole phase where kurtas were only sported by the journalist-artists-NGO volunteers, or at least people judged those to be in this profession.  Then came a phase when TV serials brought the Anarkali with leggings trend. Then came the never ending straight kurtas with palazzos. Somewhere in this race of trends, the basic Lucknowi kurta was amiss.

When I was 6yrs old, my mum would dress me up in pretty pastels Lucknowi kurtas with matching bindis. It was adored by all of us, she wore similar kurtas too and we gave Mom & Daughter goals to everyone! My association with XOX fashions gave me a chance to relive those fun style days all over again, this time trying different tips and tricks!

The Classic:

If you are not digging the palazzo trend, bring out your Patiala salwar. Get a basic white/ offwhite intricately embroidered Cotton kurta, while using a bright dupatta to complete the full ethnic look.

Also, do you have a full ghungroo jooti yet? it’s everything I needed to finish this style.


Taking cues from Alizeh in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, the following looks I am thrilled to share with you!

The Badass:

Doing the old school kurta legging is too basic for you? Go badass with a smart jacket leather (only if the weather permits) or any other with skinny fit denims & solid bellys.

Top it off with reflectors and you’re good to go!

The Everyday-Cool:

Go back to college with this look, your favourite old pair of jeans and sneakers will keep you on your toes and ready to do all your chores with ease. Add cat eye glasses and a big tote bag for the final chic elements in your style game.

Golden Girl, here is your go-to dress for this New Year’s Eve!

From Veronica to the girl in the fairness cream ad. This Gold sequin number was everywhere I looked and I couldn’t wait to own one. Once upon a time, the thought of shiny gold attire called to mind Las Vegas party girls. However, thanks to an especially strong showing on Fall 2016 runways, metallics—specifically gold—are poised to be a seasonal standout. The trend report was further confirmed with all the divas in B-town gracing Manish Malhotra’s birthday bash all dressed in gold!

This look was ideally inspired by Veronica DP’s character in Cocktail, I have had my eyes set on her beautiful gold sequin dress ever since. It can easily make you the queen in the crowd this NYE! Ideally for long party nights or fancy dinner outings. Exactly like Deepika in the movie, the dress boosted my confidence and for some reason made me feel like a total badass. Which is what you should be going for in this ongoing party season!

It’s time you invest in a sequinned outfit and be the Golden Girl you were always meant to be!

Shine on, be Jugni!

Post-party antics!

If the weddings have been here, so have the cocktails nights. The elaborate sangeets and the week long bachelorettes. The one night before the wedding, unending birthdays, anniversaries or simply the month of December. There is something about this time of the year. Everyone is exceptionally cheerful and wanting to party for sometimes no reason whatsoever.

With all things done in excess, comes a major regretful morning. I absolutely hate those who never face a hangover or those intense hunger pangs after a night of dancing with the fam!

We thought why not do a fun post party theme shoot, catching all the high spirits, the mandatory pizza and of course the famous feeling of ‘a hangover can only be cured by some more beer’

Here is a stepwise description of what goes down on an epic night, well at least on those we remember.


Let the fun begin!


Oh but, I killed it on the dance floor mood!


I’m too old for this stuff phase.


Let me stuff my face with cheese phase!


Is it time to call it a night yet?


Jumping on the bed is the most underrated joys of life!


Party on, stay safe. Be Jugni.

Coordinates please? Still wondering what to wear to your bestie’s wedding, here are some co-ords for you!

The weddings are upon us, my social media feeds are bombarded with people attending people’s weddings. What is with people and December? Anyway, if you like all my friends are also stressing about what to wear, how to plan your outfits, well here is another type of outfit you can consider!

Done too many Anarkali, sarees even kurta palazzos? Move over to crop top and skirts. Using the same fabric split into top & skirt makes it a coordinate set, you obviously know that, but I also need to play the whole trend educator role here no?

So here goes supremely affordable, really pretty, must have outfits you should adorn on at least one function in this wedding crazy time! Pro Tip: Ditch the earrings and do a headgear or a nice boho accessory stunt to guarantee the different look and loads of compliments.

Saree with a hint of steam. #DrapeGame

Are you one of those many many girls who absolutely adore the saree on people, but would never dare to try it on?

Don’t worry, You’re not alone. The ultimate sexy and traditional outfit gives a lot of us jitters with the thought of wearing it. How do you drape that? How will my curves look bulging out? How short will it make me appear? What if it opens up? and the classic fear, what if I trip and fall? While we saved the saree for farewell nights in school, and wedding receptions, there came Sonam Kapoor and broke all saree rules!!

Pairing it in ways we had not imagined, and draping it in weirdly chic styles, she opened my heart to the amazing saree. The trips and tricks to hide the flaws and look stunning in a saree are a zillion, just get down to it.

For this post, we are collaborating with Tanvi Ejrekar, a famous Pune-based designer who is launching her all new December collection with Jugni & Co.

In the words of the designer : “This season, we bring you the sheer beauty of Chanderi sarees blended with Variety of fabrics in solid colours. The chanderi material is embroidered with exclusive designs and motifs to enthral you while keeping your comfort in check!”

Here I have paired a peplum black top with black jeggings and see in the different drape styles the whole look can be played around with so well! Who would’ve thought?

In this drop dead gorgeous cherry red saree, I felt like absolute royalty. Styled it over a formal white shirt and flared pants. It made me look leaner and taller. Felt super silly that I haven’t done this yet!! What do you think?

The eternal semi-precious jewellery was a true game changer in both the looks. So light and wearable, I felt as beautiful as my mumma wearing these pieces and didn’t feel like taking them off. Check them out here

The makeover studio did a fab job with wedding makeup and casually pretty hair! See more of their work here

2 Style Bloggers, One Black Dress and a whole lot of Drama. #JugniXTSC

As I was steadily giving up on the idea of making new friends, Aleena came along and changed in a complete 360. Meet Aleena Mackar, founder & creator of The Style Chair, amongst Pune’s top bloggers, and the most epic conversation maker!!

We hit it off almost instantly, sharing the love for bollywood, fashion, pune and so much more felt like the past so many years would have been way better with her in it. Being bloggers and now friends we absolutely had to do a fun post together.

So here goes 2 Style Bloggers, One Black Dress and a whole lot of Drama. #JugniXTSC


After brainstorming on two dozen ideas, we settled on something that will benefit you the most. Easy style tips to dress up a staple outfit. Hence the black maxi dress. Done up casually, we both saw our love for knots and styled it as you can see. The denim throw on shirt on my dress made me pair it with the light denim slip-ons and dressed down the look completely!
jugni_x_tsc-5 jugni_x_tsc-6 jugni_x_tsc-18 jugni_x_tsc-14-copy

The Style Chair (TSC) was killing it with her booties and knotted up shirt, don’t you think?


What’s most fun for me was to have a style expert with me on shoot day. We obviously had way more fun than what you can see here. Scroll down for more on that.

We ragged each other, embarrassed each other & felt absolutely no qualms while doing it. Clearly visible here, that People come along in your life and make a place in your heart when you least expect it. jugni_x_tsc-51 jugni_x_tsc-69-copy jugni_x_tsc-72-copy

As the casual looks were done by us, here came the interesting part of our collaboration. TSC styles Jugni &Co & vice-versa. In the second look with the maxi dress, you will see how Filmy meets Badass. Quite literally we swapped our style statements and created extremely fun-doable looks you could do with a plain maxi dress. With my style forever revolving around fusion & Desi, Aleena gave me a full make over with the bold lips, leather jacket and a sleek ponytail.

Show her some love,, subscribe to her Youtube  , Instagram , Facebook, Snapchat & Roposo too. Her quirky style choices and ridiculously fun talks will keep you hooked! Watch below for a full view of our Style Swap.

Completing our role reversal with posing like each other, and then finally giving in to our eternally filmy cravings. References below. Also safe to say, I do know how to style a Desi Look on The Style Chair & Aleena had me amazed at what she put together for me. Don’t you agree?

Major shoutout to our favourite photographer Kruthika Pillai (follow her on Instagram @kruthika_pillai). She really had to exercise a lot of patience with us and had to even play the role of a teacher and order us around to ‘behave’

Aleena and Me, both were very excited to do a post together but also nervous about how our readers will perceive the outcome! So, leave your comments below & trust me I am dying to hear back from you so we can work on some more crazy posts together ❤

Besides all this fashion talk, I am so thrilled to have found a genuine, oh-so-lovable person in Aleena and can’t wait for a life filled with fun shoots, random meet ups and beyond imagination level of girl talk! If you’re thinking that you are too old to make new friends, we hope our little story urges you to go out and try again. <3


Jugni's Take Style

Dear Zindagi, I always want to dress like this.

Even though I don’t understand how you change every single day, I love you Zindagi.

Even though you take away people I love the most, I love you Zindagi.

Even though I plan, you change the rules of the game, I still love you Zindagi.

Many times we stumble upon words or visuals that effortlessly trigger an emotion in you. That’s the kind of effect I felt as I watched the different teasers of upcoming film Dear Zindagi. Aren’t we all in the race to repair-recycle-reuse ourselves? Just like they showed in the trailers? Post-breakup we hate all the coochy-cooing couples, we get annoyed with never ending traffic, we don’t ever truly disconnect from all our work and technology even when we’re on a break. But when we find that amazing parking spot right at the entrance of the store, or that tiny moment when we clear the green light by a second, that time when you get offered a drink at every hour in the club by different people. That moment we say, with all of that Love you Zindagi.

The over exaggerated snap stories, the over the top dressing for no reason, the unplanned solo trips, the weekend getaways with friends, the drunk nights, the yoga mornings.

Dear Zindagi, these are a few of my favorite things.

  • Cycling down a slope
  • Paper boats and origami too
  • Messy hair-don’t care vibe on someday
  • Long hugs
  • Passionate Kisses
  • Easy Goodbyes and teary eyed hellos!
  • Petrichor
  • Full Moons
  • Dipping my feet in the pool
  • Conversations that don’t end
  • Speaking to someone till the sunrise
  • Being alone, and sometimes never being alone
  • Being able to decide whatever I want & do it!

Dear Zindagi, You are my favorite.

The little things that not just bring you a smile but actually stay etched in your memory for a long time to come. As I etched back in nostalgia, I had to do a post, decoding Alia Bhatt’s easy breezy I-Already-Have-This-In-My-Wardrobe-Look.

Dear Zindagi, a film which seems to have the potential to change my life! I just have a strong urge that this movie will leave us with the exact same warm fuzzy leaving that we feel after sipping on hot cocoa on a cold lonely night. Shahrukh plays a coach & mentor to Alia who seems to have had a tricky past with Kunal Kapoor *drools* Angad Bedi and maybe a few more men. Did you know, the part where SRK and Alia was cycling and Alia fell off the cycle is actually inspired from a real life incident that occurred on the set of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai where Kajol on a similar occasion lost control of her cycle. So cute! Sport the Dear Zindagi looks and stay comfy all day wherever you go today! #LoveYouZindagi

Read on to recreate Kaira’s looks from the upcoming movie releasing on Nov.25th.

Adding Jewels to your look Diwali. #GehneNotSoMehenge

We partnered with Beads & Threads, to give you a quick guide on festive must have jewels!

Whether it is Diwali or the whole set of wedding functions and parties you will be attending, ethnic jewellery can completely up our look at every event you go to! If you agree too, then you only have one option to go to. Mom’s jewellery box or lockers where you hide-away all special ‘real’ jewellery to be removed only on big festivals and close-relative-ki-Shaadi.

Don’t you think your subtle and simple kurta-palazzo can pass off as the ultimate festive looks only if you added a grand rani haar or semi-precious earrings to it? There are multiple brands online that offer some great real-looking pieces. These are the kinds you won’t feel guilty about not repeating too often, at the same time they are pretty enough for you to style them with different looks.

I personally have three favourite brands for semi-precious jewellery in Pune;

  1. Tarksya : Check them out here
  2. Diva Jewels, Camp: Click here for more
  3. Beads & Threads: Check out their entire collection
