The not so routine- everyday look you must try! #WrapThat

I’m pretty confident that all you girlies have a printed wrap around skirt in that wardrobe. Either you received it as a gift, or bought it at a fair or just ordered one cause you felt that you could rock this look.

Well, if you have been struggling what to team it with just like I was, I decided to go dead-basic. T-shits just about fit into any look, you can layer the look with a long cape, you could even wear the skirt with a nice plain kurta. The options are endless, here is one such option that you can easily carry to your next work day or college too.

Wrap around skirts tend to suit most body types, they are easy to wear and really comfortable if you have to run errands all day. Adding desi accessories and kolhapuri chappals added an interesting blend to the look for the day. Go ahead and #WrapThat

Als, i wore the same skirt with a plain white tee while on a vacation with family, find a bonus picture with my Mumma ji below.

Tell me how you like such basic looks, should we do more?

Tee-Series: Styling a round neck t-shirt, again.

Taking cue from our last post in the same series that you can read here; I am still obsessing over the 3 uber cool doodled t-shirts that I got designed by The Filmy owl (Angel Bedi) from PosterGully.com

I was absolutely overwhelmed when so many of you sent me photos wearing the same t-shirts! Yay, blogger feel. Keeping the core thought the same, we cannot do with them can’t do without. Round neck basic t-shirts or chest print t-shirts are not just to work out or sleep in, they need to be worn out. You need to surprise yourself at how stylish you can make this wardrobe staple look. Watch and learn 😛

_DSC7577 _DSC7561 _DSC7547

It’s not difficult to understand when you add crisp white denims and heeled footwear you are definitely going strong on your style game. I have worn the same t-shirt with shorts as well as harem pants and I swear the whole look becomes unique with different shoes and pants. Also, makeup and accessories. The bag, shoes, red lips, earrings all add up to this look and makes it wearable to a dinner or evening wear.

Change how you wear a t-shirt, make a side knot and experiment._DSC7647

Use chest print t-shirts to communicate and express. I mean why not?_DSC7637

The Zara neckpiece and the striped skirt made me brunch ready, I could even go to a meeting looking like this. Would’nt you want to try?_DSC7636 _DSC7619

My Chumbak bag kept the look casual and chic, also flats for the win. So comfortable, I can shop all day sporting this look._DSC7615 _DSC7657

No style is fully complete without stunning glares and your signature pose. What are you waiting for, re-use those favourite t-shirts and send us some more tips to do the same! Stay Jugni.

#MaaKaWardrobe Here’s what you can do with that gorgeous silk saree.

When it comes to classic pieces, I find all my answers in Mumma’s wardrobe. From the most epic dupattas to authentic embroidery and fabrics that stay forever there is everything!

I have been eyeing Maa’s saree collection for the longest time, and when I finally got my hands on this one I knew I wanted to create magic with it. So, out of the many things you can do with your mom’s silk saree you can also convert it into a beautiful pleated skirt/lehenga. Just like you’ll see in the pictures below. This classic digital print, pure silk, gold and sea green piece is my Nani Maa’s treasure passed on to my mother and is now mine. By adding a pop of blue in a beautiful raw silk, I tried to put in a little life onto the colour which made me look a little pale when draped as a saree.

The saree has so much legacy attached to it, I almost feel like I’m wearing years of family style with each step in my new skirt. Crop top and skirt trend looks like it’s here to stay, hence it just fits well with fashion today created by a piece from the 60’s. What do you think of it? Do you have an old treasure from #MaaKaWardrobe that you would like to revamp? Write into us and let’s brainstorm together!

My designer suggested that we added removable layers of can-can in the skirt which made me feel like a total royalty, also, I can remove it and style it down as and when required! So cool! Designed by Ginni’s Studio.

Monsoon Gloom to Glam!

“Fashion is about dreaming, and making other people dream.”

Such inspiring words to read on a monday, nai? Whenever i start to feel a little worthless, i read these random quotes on pinterest, though the effects are not long lasting, temporarily they lift me up! have you ever tried? This post is another effort to help you dream a little dream to be a glam diva!

That is exactly how I felt, with a new photographer and a full fledged hi-fashion shoot. Hair, make up, lights et al. We’ve tried to level up this post onwards doing better pictures not just for Jugni & Co. but to make you dream of this glam feeling, ok i know i said that before, but you get the excitement right? Monsoon on most days gets to me, makes me gloomy, makes me worry about my frizzy hair and being unable to wear long gowns and sexy heels. ‘Gloom to Glam’ was inspired from that feeling.

So what do you do when the baarish is not filmy and pretty, it is sad and makes you stay indoors all the time? You lift yourself up, with fashion quotes, vogue, and extra doses of caffeine. Shown below are too simple looks, that i am pretty sure you have in your wardrobe. These dresses are basic, but the make up is grand! With our hair and makeup specialist Saba Poonawala (follow her on instagram!), She made me understand that any look can be glammed up with the right kind of make up. so pay close attention to monsoon special makeup trends!

A bright neon-ish dress does no harm in this sad weather! Matchy matchy shoes, and a cute wooden clutch blend well with this kind of a look

Monsoon make-up tips:

  1. Stay clear from liquid foundations, stick to powder press compacts or go ahead and invest in this magical product that I swear by. The MAC studio fix. It has never failed me, gives enough coverage and keeps me photo ready always!
  2. Try a Dia Mirza inspired dewy-dreamy look, use a little shimmer-mineralise powder all over the face, highlight your cheekbones with a light pink/peach shimmer highlighter like the one i use. Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer brick, it’s a little expensive but so pretty! As seen in the first look.
  3. If the au natural look is not your type, do a nice bold liner like the deep blue used in look 2 below, and super bright lips. Bright pink or a bold red rarely does any harm to anyone. Nude lips, might just look more gloomy if not paired with the right outfit and eyes. Bright lips always add that happy zest to your face and the over all look.
  4. When it’s about lining and accentuating the eyes, waterproof picks are a no-brainer. But these formulations have chemicals that dry the lashes and sensitive skin on the eyelids. To maintain the resilience of your lashes first coat them with a volumising or lengthening mascara. Build it up by topping with waterproof mascara. When it comes to liners, for a flawless matte finish, go for a felt-pen liner or a gel liner verses a pencil that’s cream-based. It dries quickly and stays put.
  5. Final tip: Seal in your look with a make up fixer, the one from MAC is amazing!

An almost pastel dress, with the ongoing high-low hemline, bright eyes and super bright lips! Makes you monsoon trending!

Since the makeup and dress added enough colour, nude belt, shoes and bag was an obvious elegant choice. What do you think?

#TrendAlert. Did you know about maxi tops? Move over maxi dresses!

I love fashion and there is no easier way to express yourself than through the clothes you wear.
-Victoria Justice

For some random reason I felt like some kind of royalty in this outfit, the elegance, the length, the way it swayed with the wind and how it made my red lips pop out beautifully! You know how we all have this simple outfit that we feel like a total princess in, this maxi slit out top did just that to me!

If the Maxi dresses craze was not enough, see some here & here. Here come the maxi tops, pair them with shorts, jeggings, palazzo pants or even a maxi skirt and somehow they will team up beautifully. Maxi tops just like the one I am wearing can be seen on this website!

Also known as slit-outs, these are known to give you the illusion of a taller leaner body and also make you want to twirl around whenever you can 😛 Shooting at sunrise gave us the perfect light to enhance the outfit as well as, oh, me! It’s been such a fun post this one, I am thinking of putting together many more outfits that make me feel a little more royal, a little more princessy than the daily deal! Would you like that too? Would you tell me your easy-peasy style tips that make you a princess?

Also, this seems to be the ideal option for a pool party, a brunch day, or even a day out with family since you can cover the slit up easily and pull it off as a dress! you can buy it from here!

Pairing white shorts came as a natural choice, the turquoise blue earrings and ditto shoes went just like hand in glove and also added a different colour element to the look. Try and do that when you put together a look, break it with a different colour, justify the colour by teaming a bag or shoes of the same family.

The jeggings were safer but looked equally great, the red bag helped break the monotony of all that print. And red lips, you may ask, well they never let me down. Pair them with sexy heels and wear it out in the night too. Try kariye!

Top 5 wardrobe essentials for a Power Dresser.

To not just be a head turner in any room, to not just exude a killer impression, but to actually feel like you own the place Put on that Jacket! Power Dressing mantra 101 is to put on a jacket whenever you are not quite sure of yourself, and then feel the magic!

Remember how students look and feel more confident when they wear blazers, a good presentation or even conducting an entire class comes easy when you dress so powerfully. To look empowered and feel like it, we researched on the Top 5 wardrobe essentials for a power dresser.

1. White Shirt: No formal look is complete without a crisp white shirt, I have one from Mango, it’s been with me for the last 2 years. Slim fit and crisp even after multiple washes and wears. Invest in one today.

2.Blazer: A blazer can help to turn around an outfit completely. It can be worn with jeans, pants, pencil skirts, even shorts! Don’t restrict yourself to the boring greys and browns, find a colour that makes you feel pretty and get a handful of blazers which can be worn out of office too, different cuts and drapes!

3. Black Heels: Heels correct your posture and make you walk tall and upright. A posture does give you a lot of confidence and heels make us all look so sexy! Try them now.

4. Pencil Skirt/ straight fit dress: Show off those long sultry legs, and make a no-nonsense impression on your colleagues and boss! One that they will not be able to take off their mind. Allen Solly, Van Huesen, Mango and even Westside’s LOV have some great options for all budgets!

5. The bag: You need to find that one bag, which has multiple compartments, a small handle as well as a detachable strap, preferably in a nude shade so you can carry it all day everyday. Charles and Keith have the best of these kind. Sale season is coming soon girls, all geared up?

Work wear, conferences, press meets or launch parties with a mix and match of the above mentioned 5, you’ll be power dressing like a pro!

Jugni's Take

Shoes your wardrobe is begging for! #JugniFinds

Before the international brands came in, before the malls raided our pockets, before we could walk in to a hundred stores to buy one thing; there was one market, one store and one fixed place for all things we needed here in Pune.

Cakes at Kayani, Grocery at Chandan, Sandwiches at Marzorin, and shoes at ABBA. Abba (like the music band) has been the jewel on main street for over 20 years. Walking into this store will never be less than a memorable experience, friendly staff, great service and almost always available footwear; the kind you’ll like and the kind which fits like a dream!

Having a foot size of UK 41, it’s been a nightmare for me to buy shoes that I actually like and not a compromise because of my size requirement. Abba has been my one stop for heels, flats, ballerinas, chappals and formal shoes too. I did go to all the crazy expensive brands and the malls where I was not just disappointed with the lack of attention I got, but also, rarely got my size anyway.

All in all, if you need someone who is as passionate about shoes as yourself, meet the owners of Abba! They don’t have fancy salesmen or floor managers but they sell what they create with so much love and passion that you won’t be able to not see it! The variety is good, the range is oh-so-affordable, and you’ll get a shoe here that fits every occasion; meetings, parties, dailies or even gifting. Its all at Abba.

In our Jugni collaboration we had the chance to meet up with the New Zealand return shoe expert Mr. Zaheer Tejani and his wonderful mum who lovingly run the store and offered us dreamy shoes sole by sole.

We are showcasing different pairs on the blog, click on the image to read more about the look, outfit details and styling tips for these gorgeous shoes!

And after lots of research and many shopping hauls here are the four pairs you definitely need in your wardrobe:Stilettos: You cannot go clubbing, or date night or big meeting without a sexy pair of these.
DSC_0019

Block heels: Comfortable for long days at the mall or while out roaming around a different city, also perfect to drive around or chill somewhere with your girls. (P.S: these are super in right now)DSC_0050

Flats: An obvious one. Get one with some bling so you can use it to dress up a boring outfit or just match it with grand ones. DSC_0158

Kolhapuris: Flats or wedges, they are so elegant and your desi swag is not complete without them.

Maxi-mising – Part Deux.

If you are the kind who thinks that the maxi dress is not for you, this post is dedicated to you. You think you are too short, the maxi makes you look taller. You think you are too curvaceous, the maxi flows and falls so perfectly on your curves that you’ll be surprised at your reflection in the mirror! you think it’s too dressy, well you’ll never know where all you can wear the same dress, dressy or not it’s guaranteed sexy.

The summers are here only another a month or so, before the monsoon rains all over your floor lengths, pull them out of those closets and flaunt away.

Here’s a dress which i just cannot stop bragging about. It’s thrifted. It’s the perfect green. You know the exact shade of green like ” The girl in the green scarf” from ‘Confessions of a shopaholic’ and it spoke to me, I had to buy it or it would haunt me forever. It’s supposedly from a brand call Vinegar, none the less it made my haircut look more expensive and my collar bones shone out like sun-rays. In a club it would be a total head turner. What do you say fellow Jugni?

A simple tube dress, a little aztec, and the classic Ruby Woo from MAC cosmetics. Team it with basic black shiny flats and an easy black sling bag.DSC_0121 DSC_0144 DSC_0146 DSC_0147 DSC_0150Also, I was a little under the weather while we shot this, sorry for the not great pictures, in compensation here’s how the dress can be worn outdoors 😛
