LWD- No fuss affair

From the cutie-next-door to the glam doll, a LWD is a the covetable fashion item. From breakfast party to strolling on the beach to shaking your booty in the club, you don't have to worry too much when you have this baby in your possession. With endless styling possibilities, this was a perfect choice for lunch with my cousins.
I have worn this before for a dinner. You could see look HERE

Throw a printed shirt over,secure it with a belt also adding a pop of color with the same. A cutesy hair clip adds that little teen flavor needed for a bunch of pretty girls to get noticed.

East meets West

We all have been inspired by our grandmothers at some point in life, so no matter how many trends we follow, how short we go on the LBDs, Indian girls can never get rid of their fusion streak. We all love mixing. Following trends while adding a little bit of Indianness to the outfit can very unique and refreshing at the same time. Western stylish teamed with Indian fabrics and colors is not only innovative and interesting but also flatters the Indian body type and complexion too well.

How to do it your way-

1. The Dupatta(drape)- You could use your dupatta or your mother's old dupatta as a scarf around the neck on a dress or tee to add the Indian touch.

2. Indian fabrics-  Mixing Indian fabric with western designs is the basic key to the Indo-western look. Wear brocade pants instead of churidaars with your kurta/kameez or even a LBD/LWD. See Outfit Here

3. Printed pants/salwars- Bright colorful prints are a trademark of our culture, and so you can't get an Indo-western outfit right without it. A pair of printed pants worn with a tunic would look just right, or a salwar worn with an overized shirt/button down shirt can be uber cool.  

4. Beaded clutches- Clutches and bags with thread work/bead work , Indian motifs are a fabulous way to throw in some ethnicity to the outfit.

5. Jewellery- Bold ethnic pieces, multistring beaded necklaces, Kadas with the intricate Indian work, jhumkis, anklets, statement stone rings are all ways to grabbing eyesballs. You could also wear glass bangles with an outfit for a flashing Indian touch. Ethnic jewellery with a gown, for eg wearing kundan with a silk gown for a cocktail party can be quite a stunner. See Outfit Here

6. Jodhpuris/ mojris- Embroidered mojris can add crucial finishing touches to a western outfit and add can also make a great Indo-western outfit. Wearing mojris with a tunic/maxi or Rajasthani chappals with denim shorts can be a few options. See Outfit Here

7. Embroidered jackets- Jackets with Indian motifs or patch work can look chic for running errands or going for dinner to a fancy place. You could experiment with the length for several occasions. Like a patched/mirror work silk jacket can be a good choice to funk and ethnic touches to a basic white shirt-blue denim combo, cropped brocade jacket over a maxi can look sassy for a dinner date, while a zari jacket over a lehanga can look equally flamboyant.

8. Corsets- When we talk of western designs corsets cannot be missed. Halters, strappy garments and tube necklines  in Indian suits and  blouses/cholis are a hit with designers for the classy brides.
 Go ahead and have a colorful Indian summer:)

Neon DIY shoes

Are you thinking of throwing away an old pair of shoes?? well, think again. If you're a creative person like me, and like to customize your own stuff, you will surely love this. I saw a picture of these button DIY shoes somewhere on google, and that very moment I knew what I wanted to do with my old pair of off white ballerina. I chose neon and Aquamarine crystals to give a neon shiny effect to the shoes for this summer. 

What you will need:
1. fabric glue(if you're shoes are of fabric)
2. Some flat back crystals( so that they stick easily) You could use buttons, stones or whatever stuff you like for decorating.

This was an easy DIY as the crystals got stuck easily, and I didn't have to do much work. But yes if you're thinking of re-doing your faux-leather shoes then you will have to find the right glue to work with. Anyways mine were fabric so I didn't have to worry about it too much:)
