When you imagine the perfect boho-outfit we are sure that the first few colors that come to your mind are bright shades of yellow, red, and pinks peppered with white. And not to forget embroidered detailing and layers of silver jewelry. While this sounds perfect, we have our eyes set on a more upscale boho-look.
A deep midnight blue is where our minds at, thoughts of being draped in sheets of serene blue, no clutter just visual harmony. We aren’t just picturing good old classic solid blue, our spring summer boho-vision is more along the lines of bursts of florals, mini-tassels, and complementary embroidery.
Some key pieces that you will need to ride the summer bathed in boho-blue, are a little like the list we have built below:
The last thing and possibly the most important aspect of your look is the make-up, keep yourself hydrated, lather on some sunscreen, and keep those lips bright.
Have you ever looked at a piece of clothing so bright and bursting with prints that it confuses your mind a little, you’re attracted to it yet a little hesitant of how loud and proud it is. We say, take a chance, grab the most flamboyant piece which goes against all your current wardrobe habits, and style it in your own unique way.
The thing about pieces with brash personalities is that they do all the work for you, the mash-up of dizzying prints in contrasting colors, the tiny design details like ruffles and cut-outs, and the overall flattering silhouettes just do all the talking. All you have to do is throw them on and live vicariously through them.
With spring-summer blooming around every corner, you need a few boisterous pieces to partake in the joy of the season changing. And there are two essential pieces that you will need to start with. A dress and a skirt. Sounds simple? Well it is!
Keep your eyes peeled for a beautiful egg-yolk bright yellow dress and skirt. Each unique in their own way and each serving their own little purpose. For the dress, go for one which is cinched at the waist and flows out from there. An off-shoulder or cut-out shoulder is an add-on. In terms of print, the crazier the better. Complex prints always make for better instagram stories and meatier compliments. Style your dress with leather brogues, retro shades, and a compact box-bag. So that while your dress is insane your accessories are calm and collected to create balance.
For a skirt, depending on your body type go for either an A-line or straight-fit. Look for a piece with red and blue color prints as they will bring out the yellow perfectly. Style the skirt with a crop top in a similar color or if you want to turn it down a notch then choose a solid color like red or black. Just make sure the top is in the same color as one of the colors in the print of the skirt. Accessorize with light essentials in silver and slip-on shoes.
We can’t decide which look we like better and since we can’t help decide get your credit card out ladies, it needs a little greasing.
Styling ethnic clothes for the workplace is one of our favorite pet projects. We like to see women decked in strong prints and sharp cuts, immersed and passionate about their jobs and killing it with their wardrobe. It’s what fairytales are truly made of, not all that other fluff.
This season we are thinking, bold pay-attention-to-me prints like Aztecs. Usually this print is all over pinterest in shades of baby pinks, and powder blues sprinkled with gold and silver but that’s not what we are leaning towards. We are thinking strong palettes of blacks, red, browns, and yellows. High-contrast colors which make a statement when blended well together.
If you like where this is going, then here are the 3 styles you should play around with
Pick a look, make it your own, and own it!
Sometimes months pass by and you never get to dust out your decadent ethnic-wear, yet you keep collecting pieces with the hope that at the next big wedding you will look flawless. We ourselves have a mounting pile of sarees and lush kurtas which are too much for low-key events and just perfect for big blowouts which barely come our way.
Smart-shopping. That’s it. It sounds simple in theory but wait till you’re skimming through racks of clothes and your eye only steers towards the Padmavat kind of pieces. However, to build an ethnic-wardrobe which you can get the maximum out of, go for fusion pieces.
The beauty of fusion pieces is that they blend in traditional designs with western silhouettes and cuts perfectly, thus creating a look which hits all the right notes. While shopping for fusion pieces there are 3 things to make a note of:
What we love most about fusion pieces is the flexibility to dress them up for a big shindig or dress them down for a small gathering.
