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!

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

Dressing for Dandiya nights, when you don’t have a chaniya-choli! #NavratriMustHave

Happy Navratri!

A few years ago, I used to plan and prepare for Navratri nights weeks in advance with my white plastic bangle sets, authentic outfits, and accessories. I even had a family friend courier the outfit to me from Ahmedabad, because the patterns there were so updated and prettier from the ones here in Pune. Did you also take a 3-day crash course in Garba pre-navratri? School dandiya night, society dandiya, and ones in the clubs here in Pune. Then came those random events at grounds where TV stars would come and give away best-dressed awards and best group Garba awards. My God the pressure used to be intense.

Some days those used to be no? Coming to the present. I barely realise when Navratri starts unless Mom announces it. So here I am, stuck with no prep and a few Garba nights ahead of me.

Activated Jugni mode and we came up with a quick fix for our readers too. Dive into your wardrobe for heavy dupattas (preferably with shells / mirrorwork / bandini / lehriya / phulkari) as ethnic as it can get. Bring out all those old tucked away accessories, oxidised stuff, maang tikkas, bangles, kamar bands and more. The trick is to layout all options you have and then put together a look.

Doing the same, here are two easy-peasy looks for Dandiya nights. Also, google Deepu in RamLeela for makeup references just like me and go all out with drawings on the face and neck. So sexy.

Used dad’s kurta buttons as a choker and was so impressed with the way it turned out. Ever tried? _dsc1977

Deep Kohl eyes are kind of a compulsion, and this pinterest inspired hair kept my fringe away from the face and the look fuss free._dsc1991 _dsc2007

Another Navratri special DIY look coming up in the next post, stay tuned. Psst. If you are a fan of reusing old dresses and pom-poms you’ll love it. Till then, tell us if you have simply draped a heavy dupatta on your old tee and jeans for dandiya before?

One dress four ways. Easy tips for effortless style!

It’s a horrible thing we have started doing, this whole Instagramming and snap chatting OOTD pictures. It adds layers of doubt in the decision to wear an outfit again!

If it has a picture taken and uploaded somewhere, I tend to let the picture do it’s social media time and more before even considering wearing it again, and when I do, it must be with a completely different audience.

Stress.

In all that self-created drama, let’s look at wearing a simple maxi dress repeatedly and stylishly! If you have a plain dress you know you can do oh-so-much with it, but here is a dress I love and the print is quite unique which not only makes it amazing but also makes it so difficult to repeat!

Layering is everything:

No rocket science there, throwing on a shrug or a jacket you know will change the look drastically. These days girls are wearing t-shirts over maxi dresses and using the dress as skirts, go figure! And, I was hesitating to put on a sweatshirt over my dress even while freezing. Hmm. Jugni issues. Layering makes styling an outfit easy, play with lengths, fabrics, styles too.

Added a simple cotton shirt and tied it up at the waist, very art-class look feels nai?

IMG_3023-Edit

The big messy hair is all thanks to our ever so unpredictable monsoon weather. yes, I’m kind of Monica Geller-ish with my hair when it gets humid. IMG_3032-Edit

Keeping the accessories same, I tried a dress on dress. Denim over a cotton maxi might sound off but actually looked pretty cool. It not only changed the look of my maxi but also allowed me to wear my denim dress again. See the denim dress post here.

How about a semi-formal jacket? Spunk up your maxi dress look with a full close button up or zip up jacket and change your look completely!

IMG_3062

Jewellery is everything! While trying to establish a particular look, the accessories you pair together really adds up to your look. I tried two different themes with dull gold and oxidised silver too. Keeping in mind the print of the maxi dress with those little coins can be turned into something ethnic, I liked how it added up. Do you?

Drop that shoulder! KoovsXJugni

Continuing on the ongoing cold shoulder craze, here is a simple look you have to try the next time you are stepping out!

Jugni tip: not a good idea to go dancing in an off shoulder top, as the elastic slides up each time your arms move to do your moves! *NotGoodBro*

Besides that tiny winy little glitch, here is our first ever tie up with Koovs! *yayy* Also, I seriously believe only super stylish people wear Koovs, I find their stuff super cool you must check it out if you haven’t already! This summer also is about investing in white denims! The summery-spring-y-floral tops and hyper colours are best when paired with a classic white pair!

I got my hands on the most epic fit from Zara. Although, I do think that lighter coloured bottoms do make my thighs appear broader, the length of the tops you wear the changes the game completely. So choose smart. My sling bag holds just the essentials and went effortlessly with the look, also the reflectors from Anjuna, Goa added swag!

 

IMG_0470 IMG_0472

An absolute must try are the jump in shoes, which are comfy enough to keep you running in all day at the mall or amidst your errands. I love the little bling which I teamed with my cute-sy two finger ring.

Did you see? Do you like? Won’t you try?

Cold Shoulders and Ripped Jeans! #TrendAlert

Who knew giving a cold shoulder would be cool!

Cold shoulder tops are the rage right now. And they are so perfect for the summer. What I love about them is the perfect balance of skin show and hide! These consist of peek-a-boo sleeves, off shoulders, one shoulder tops or in-cut sleeves, punch hole sleeves and many more. Basically all those that flaunt your sexy shoulders!

Try them in basic colours with interesting denims like the one below, or even pair this with a fitted skirt for a casual chic vibe. These looks also show my love for basic solid colours and how black and white are the answers to any style problem. You are never over or under dressed when you put on the classics.

Don’t you agree? Have a look and let me know how you liked this easy look.

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.

_DSC7662

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.
