5 Christmas Outfits

Christmas is barely a couple of days away and since I'm a huge fan of the Christmas season, I thought I'd do a little outfit post. So here are five outfits that are pretty much very diverse and can be twisted and turned according to convenience.

Trends This Fall (2011)

So summer’s trends are fading away and fall’s trends are creeping in. (And yeah, even if you live in a place where such a thing as fall doesn’t exist, who said you couldn’t at least follow the trends? And you always have winter!)
   So I’m gonna highlight some of the most prominent trends this fall, or at least my favorite ones. Here we go…

Black On Black (Fall 2011)

   One of my favorite trends from this fall is the all-over black trend. Being a big fan of the color myself, I think this is amazing. Mix a couple of patterns and textures, and you're good!
   Just keep in mind that it's all gotta be black. From your outfit, to your shoes. Preferably your bag, and I'd say your nails too. It gives you the complete effect of the look, and if you mix a couple of patterns and textures here and there, it keeps the outfit from looking boring.

Fall 2011 (1)

   Check it out. This is perfect for Fall/Winter this year. Simple skinny jeans and a loose sweater topped with a lace blazer. According to me, lace is amazing for just about every season.
   Add a little bit of color on accessories and you're good to go!

Picture Inspired (1): Bold, Bright, Floral

   Tell me if you've ever felt like you just don't know what to wear, how to wear what you wear, how to layer up without messing up, what trend to follow. You put something on, add an accessory or two, decide to put on a different colour with your shoes, something completely different with your earrings, you pull your hair up and wear bright lipstick.
   And in the end you look like a mix up of three different trends you were thinking of. And just wrong.
   Hence, it helps if you have something to refer to if you're not good at making it in your head. Pick a nice, glamorous picture from a magazine or wherever, and now try doing the same, don't copy, just get inspired... by the colours, or maybe the pattern, the style....

   That's exactly what I'm going to do here.
   So lets start with this one...

Go Wild

   We all have secret desires that we are too gutless to admit out loud. And I’m talking about fashion desires here.

   I remember this one time when my friend told me about her wish to get an animal printed dress for Easter. I was like, “Are you serious? Animal print? What, like tiger stripes or something?” I have to admit, I was laughing. She looked offended and went, “No! More like leopard print or something.”
   She was crazy, but it got me thinking. Why do we embrace floral prints so easily, and duck when asked about patterns like leopard spots?

   In reality, we’re not very wrong to hate animal prints (for those of us who do, that is). Because they’re loud, gaudy and make you look like an animal-hater.
   But wait. All of the above is true, but, of course, ONLY when not worn right.

Satin Smart

   Do you know that feeling you get when you see someone wearing an outfit that is just so wrong at so many levels, and you just want to go up to them and ask them what in heaven’s name they were thinking while choosing to wear it? But you can’t. And then your eyes hurt to even look at them.
   Now, do you know that feeling when you notice people staring at you with the same expression on their face, pleading you to move away?
   Probably not. But then, sometimes mistakes happen, and you end up embarrassing yourself and feeling scarred for life.
   So you rather avoid those mistakes, right?

Now…. Let’s solve this problem.
   There are certain areas where most of us go wrong. Let’s go over them one at a time. Starting with satin.

Sober During Summer?

So! Summer’s finally here. The air’s getting HOT. And so is my wardrobe.
   Yeah…! Summer’s the time for all the fun clothing, right? Bikinis, colourful tank tops, shorts and basically minimal clothing. AND a whole lot of colour.
   But what if you’re too scared to step out of your house wearing a bunch of colours on your body?
   “I can’t pull it off!” that’s what we say.
 Then play it easy!! Keep it simple, conventional, but still follow summer’s trends.

And how do you do that?

Fashion Inspired: Taylor Swift

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you think 'Talyor Swift'?
Blonde curls and shiny guitars!
   Yeah! Also, great lyrics and a down-to-earth attitude.  And a signature style. An original one. An inspiring one.                                                      
That's what I'm going to look into.

Edgy, much?

   Have you noticed the sudden change in celebrity clothing?  Have you noticed how suddenly the goody two-shoes, pretty clothing is being gradually pushed aside for something so much edgier?  Do you see the dawn of some kind of rock/punk/gothic style in recent times?
   Well, I do. See it, I mean.
   When did the simple, delicate, single bracelet with the white lace dress get replaced by chunky bracelets and rings? Uh, exactly when the white lace dress started being worn with a black leather jacket. And studs replaced shiny stones.

Trend Alert: Wedges

   Every girl loves shoes, and keeping up with shoe trends is the best part. Shoe trends do take longer to pass than clothing trends, but thats kinda nice, actually (you save on cash). Clothing trends emerge in a little more of the 'in-your-face' manner as compared to shoe trends that come in more subtly. So, it does become a little difficult to keep track of them.
   But with some, you can just tell.
   So, if you don't already know, the Wedge Shoe is the new in-thing. Shoe styles have come and gone. Classics remain. The shoe trend, this Spring/Summer, officially, are wedges.

Springing up your Wardrobe: Easy Trends (Spring '11)

   Spring is officially here (or has been for a while now, anyway) and all the world's corals & florals are parading into your wardrobe. Seriously, what season can be better that spring when the flowers are blooming and everything is pleasant?
   But wait.
We live in India. And especially  for those living in Mumbai, such a thing as spring doesn't exist. For us, its just summer all over again. So......what, we don't follow season's trends anymore?
   See, according to me, there are two kinds of season cycles -the season cycle of the real world and the season cycle of the fashion world. So what if your country doesn't exactly follow the former? You can always follow the latter!
