One Kurta Three Ways. Hacks for a serial outfit repeater. #StyleGameStrong

 

I have always sorta-kinda-been in denial about being a fashion blogger. In my head, these superstar girls I follow are true fashion bloggers, not me. Like I toh barely even get there. Until ta-da this post! So easy, you absolutely have to try it!

Merging the trends of maxi tops and fusion kurtas, my designer created this beautiful classic white kurta for me. The see through georgette and the sexy sleeves makes the bottom pop, with almost any kind of pairing. Be it palazzos, Patiala salwar, slim fit pants or even a skirt or lehenga. Wear it with a printed salwar to the next Ganpati pooja you attend, or pair it with your hot fit denims and sky high heels to impress you girls on your next brunch outing. Have a look at the images below and you’ll be surprised at how a simple investment can go a long long repeatable way.

#TrendSpotting Wedding Jewellery inspiration for the Winter Bride.

While hunting for an ideal spot to shoot the following look, my search finally ended at Zora, A Modern Indian Kitchen opened recently at Ishanya Mall, Pune. The interiors and the overall ambience is so classy I was thrilled to conduct a few shoots there for the blog. The digital gramophone, the vertical garden walls, the high bar, and the beautiful lights made my team’s stress levels go down as everything was already there!

Bridal Jewellery trends do stick to making statements while being classy and re-usable. Rathod Jewellers gave us the ultimate upgrade in the jewellery scene for the Winter Bride.

This beautiful layered set is a mesmerising combination of Polki, Gold, Pearls and Rubies. Paired with a maangtika and a contemporary diamond bracelet to go with it, I felt like a bride already.

These amazing pieces on me made me look like a dream amalgamation of Jodhabai & Mastani. Don’t you agree? If you are researching for your upcoming wedding, keep your eyes open to such Polki-Pearl-Rose Cut Diamond combinations, as it is rare and oh-so-beautiful. If you are a raging bridesmaid and has a few weddings to attend this season, investing in a pair of stunning danglers or maangtikka like this will have you sorted!

I also got my hands on this elegant outfit from Sonal Thakore, it’s pure white raw silk kurta with a very khadi-ish jacket, as much as I loved the jewellery and the whole done up look, let me tell you that the outfit in itself is an absolute stunner. I can’t wait to wear it out! While choosing outfits for weddings and gatherings we do tend to get lost in the array of happy hues, investing in a white wonder will be a good shift for all of us! Try it.

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.

IMG_3019 IMG_3022

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_3052

IMG_3055-Edit

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?

#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.

Flower Power.

Did you know, ‘flower power’ was a term coined as a means to transform war protests into peaceful affirmative spectacles. Hippies embraced the symbolism by dressing in clothing with embroidered flowers and vibrant colors, wearing flowers in their hair, and distributing flowers to the public, becoming known as flower children

Overall exuberates a lot of power with a strong non-violent ideology. The trend became huge in the late 1960s and the 70’s fashion wave is all about florals! The best part about such clutter breaking trends is the way they make their way back into our lives. 2015 has been seeing a lot of the 70’s vibe. From our very own baba sporting the floral trend to all over the runways, though trends like these take time to trickle down to the aam janta like you and me, it’s here and it looks like it is here to stay.

The floral trend helps in adding a little elegant spunk to any attire, (indian as well as western outfits) be it the little flower tiara or fresh flower bracelets that we see on mehndi functions at weddings. Florals are not just for spring, they are an all time hit now! Short printed dresses look adorable on any day, and then there is the maxi floral which I just cannot seem to get enough of!

IMG_1300 IMG_1333 IMG_1334 IMG_1335 IMG_1336 IMG_1338 IMG_1339

Take dresses like these to the next level, with sharp makeup, sky high heels and an attitude that will make everyone stop and take notice when you walk in looking like a million bucks!

Also, don’t forget that the flower power still symbolises so much history that you must feel like you are embodying a movement, a rebellion of sorts. For freedom, beauty and your own right to kill with cuteness! Go, be a gulaabo. #shaandaar #idea

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!

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?

How to repeat a dress, guilt free & stylishly

Apart from working on my Forever 21 sale haul, this post is going to help you with easy style hacks to wear your favourite dress to death.

We’re all guilty of owning a dress that we just cannot get enough of, to a club, to a brunch, to college, to office, even to bed if we could. This dress is your turn to whatever the occasion maybe. Having said that, I was delighted to find this easy-peasy casual dress at the recent F21 monsoon sale. Priced at only INR 500 (after discount) I didn’t see a reason for me not to buy it, infact i almost picked two. OK. Enough rambling, getting to the point. Working on this post made me realise the power of layering and accessories. So simple, and how unthankful we are to all the things that can completely turn around a look from elegant lady to school-girl.

Here are FIVE ways to repeat a basic dress, guilt free and stylishly.

1. Add on: A printed cape.

Printed capes are big right now, wear a pair of shorts and a tshirt and throw on a floor length printed cape, wear it on a dress or even a short cape on a maxi dress. So pretty, you have to try it. And the tassels just got me on this one!

2. Add on: A light shirt.

So honestly i just loved this shirt, but it doesn’t fit me. I mean the buttons just won’t shut, so instead of giving it a slow death at the back of my wardrobe, here’s what i did. Threw it on, and voila, look so pretty, let down or tied-up. It adds so much character to the dress, with the right bag i could wear it anywhere i like.

DSC_0043

DSC_0064 DSC_0054

3. Add on: A Backpack.

Dressing down an outfit is my favourite task. Took-over this checkered backpack from my kid sister’s wardrobe. Duh. Elder sisters give you no choice. Also laid my hands on cutesy tiara print socks and monochrome shoes to go with the bag. And the minion sipper just felt so right. Ideal for a picnic this look just took me back to teenage.

DSC_0107 DSC_0112

Also notice how the bag drops and I go from full school girl to tuition girl swag. C’mon you know you opened your hair, pulled down your socks and threw the bag on one shoulder when you went to classes! Especially girls school. *ahem*

DSC_0138

4. Add on: A lace-y cape.

Taking the whole look to date night level was my borrowed lace-cape and suede heels. The black made just a drastic contrast to the dress, that it helped me up the look to an almost formal level. Heels also took the casual-ness of the dress out of the picture.

Ready for derby 😛

5. Add on: Jeggings.

Nobody remembers a dress worn as a top worn as a dress! You get it, confuse them by wearing it as a tunic top on skinny jeans or jeggings. Drape a scarf to make the top also look a little detailed, you could also wear a statement neckpiece, here i have worn my cape as a scarf and it works perfectly thanks to the tassels. Hai na simple? Try toh karo, your wardrobe is full of surprises and you don’t even know it.

Let me know what you think of these, and tell me did you ever feel ashamed to repeat your favourite dress?

Jugni's Take

Will work for Lipstick.

You know how there is just one missing element in somethings perfect? I think we are all perfect, most of the times 😛 and when we’re not, its mostly cause we are not wearing Lipstick.

From feel good quotes, to feel good selfies, they are all a sure thing with just a little bit of lipstick. Just before a hot date, or just before a meeting, before stepping into the mall or before stepping out of home, dab some on and go for the kill.

I recently laid my hands on two new lip colours, read on to know what i feel about the new L’Oreal collection. The colour riche black cherry shade, is like a deep red, though i was quite unsure about how i would carry it, once worn i could not get enough of it. So soft, perfect texture, long lasting and the rich colour was way beyond my expectations.

DSC_0329

Some of you might think its more of an evening colour, I think its just right for just about any hour of the day! Try it to believe it. You can also buy it here

The second product I brought in was the Colour Riche liquid lipstick- Rose Symphony, Lip glosses are so out! I think mostly because people connect back to their teenage days with lip-glosses, and not in a fuzzy nostalgia way but like a way in which they tried to look all grown up by wearing adult make up! i have seen 7-9yr old girls picking up barbie glosses and dolling up! Its a sticky memory, speaking of which after the craze of matte, non transferable all day long lip colours, lip glosses just vanished from my vanity. Until I wore this gorgeous pink colour riche liquid lipstick.

It’s ideal for days when you are wearing no make-up. It blends in with your lip colour and can add a beautiful punch when layered. It took me back to college days, when i loved these candy pinks on my lips. Try it, and break the matte clutter in your makeup pouch! L’Oreal Paris always seems to get it right with our cosmetic needs, they also have launched a limited edition moist matte packaging edition which comes with a studded case in a velvet box, buy it soon!

Turning Green.

Everyday as i dress up, i feel like i am walking on a thin line. I want to be dramatic yet subtle, I want messy hair that look styled, I want to remain current but not desperately trendy, most of all I want to feel like I inspire, not just be inspired!

Then i thought the most inspiring people I know, were at some point inspired too, hence the key was to feel inspired and walk on that glorious path to make people feel the same way. Everyday as I dress up, I wish that I inspire someone, to make that Kohl line deeper, to wear that accessory they think won’t suit them and to walk, walk with so much confidence that every passer by is filled with the same elated feeling!

This outfit is all of the above! It is so simple you’ll be surprised why you didn’t think of doing this earlier. Task for the day was again to be able to repeat the same piece of garment in ways that the ‘look’ will not seem repetitive. We’ve kept the make-up basic with lots of kajal, lip balm and clean strokes of mascara!

The first one is a easy day look. Walk onto campus/office looking elegant, and so-dressy that they won’t be able to stop their heads from turning.The huge tote makes it easy for you to dump in your laptop/books or even an extra pair of shoes, and also pulls down the formal-ness of the suit. It’s casual, flowy and I love imagining how well the georgette will move when you walk in it! Don’t forget to add a little trinklet on your bag too (if it’s a plain one like this) or do a nice big mirror work jhola in multi-happy-colours!

IMG_8515

The same throw on jacket can be worked into a family function or luncheon. I couldn’t resist the big silver jhumkas I had, they transformed the look to ethnic and festive in seconds, the hyper kohl eyes looked great and I went all in with the multi coloured jootis.

DSC_0030

How about wearing the exact same outfit to a day out with the girls? or maybe your first ever kitty party? I swapped the jootis to nude-comfy-heels and wore a statement neckpiece, one big enough to look like I cared to dress for the event and simple enough to make it look effortless! After all the game is to be able to say “Oh, this, i just threw it on!” and don’t forget to “#IWokeUpLikeThis” when you post it on your SM platforms 😛

DSC_0042 DSC_0043 DSC_0050 DSC_0054 DSC_0058

Don’t turn green with jealousy each time you think you don’t have new clothes, surprise yourself with these game changers, as i’d like to call them, that let you play with your outfit as per your outings/occasions. And want to know the best part? No these are not leggings, these are my favourite pair of denims also the jacket has been created out of an old dupatta! So casual and so comfortable, I wouldn’t mind doing anything in this outfit; if black base is not your thing,you can also do the same by wearing a nice deep blue denim with a similar colour ganjee on top!

BTW, is it just me or you too can’t resist twirling around every time you wear something like this? Would you try a look like this? Tell us in comments below!
