In the 21st century, the style has also made a huge impact on the fashion industry. Workwear has not so just become a style of clothes that has been adopted by the hipster subculture, but a culture and way of life in this particular community.

THE COLOUR RED AND VALENTINE’S DAY

RED IS THE COLOUR OF THE SEASON…

“Red is the great clarifier bright and revealing. I can’t imagine becoming bored with red- it would be like becoming bored with the person you love”- Diana Vreeland

Hi there, how about talking Red, as it is indeed the colour of the season because most of us are waiting for the Valentine’s Day. I may have time but unfortunately doesn’t have enough space to write at length regarding this audacious colour which depicts love, passion, desire, heat, longing, lust, sexuality, sensitivity, romance, joy, strength, leadership, courage, vigor, will-power, rage, anger, danger, malice, wrath, stress, action, vibrance, radiance and determination phew!! I know there are others too but I am going to focus only on one of my favourites. Red colour.Dating back to 15,000 years prove that red colour was primarily used in that period. According to the ancient history, in Egypt, red was associated with life, health, and victory. Egyptians would colour themselves with red ochre during celebrations. Red ochre was widely used as a pigment for wall paintings, particularly as the skin colour of men.

Red is used in modern fashion much as it was used in Medieval painting; to attract the eyes of the viewer to the person who is supposed to be the center of attention. People wearing red seem to be closer than those dressed in other colors, even if they are actually the same distance away.

Monarchs, wives of Presidential candidates and other celebrities often wear red to be visible from a distance in a crowd. It is also commonly worn by lifeguards and others whose job requires them to be easily found. In classic Rome, the most powerful men are called the Coccinati, meaning the “ones who wear red”

Red is the colour most commonly associated with love, followed at a great distance by pink. It the symbolic color of the heart and the red rose, is closely associated with romantic love or country love and Saint Valentine’s Day.

Each year on February14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers( most of them are red in colour)with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5thcentury, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia. But these days we celebrate Valentines day in slightly different manner as we spend quality time with a loved one. Go out to a nice restaurant or create a special dinner. Make a homemade card (especially in red) for someone. The card will have more meaning to it if it’s created by you instead of buying a card from a store.Valentine’s Day Roses. Rose is one of the most popular flower (especially red rose) and one of the most powerful symbol of Valentine’s Day.Valentine’s Day Hearts. Red heart pierced by the Cupid’s arrow is a traditional symbol of Valentine’s Day. Think of candy, chocolate, or sweets and you are ready to please your Valentine.

 

Red in fashion rule the ramp throughout the year, it is one such colour which takeover one’s imagination and can create wonders. As they say red is not the colour of outside, it is the colour of inside too!! I appreciate this colour all the year through and love to wear any which way, whether it is a beautiful red dress, or top, beautiful accessories like red bag, shoes or just anything in this beautiful colour.

 

 

Associated with an aristocratic excess, red is the fashion code for all seasons. Red makes a strong visual impact in the collections of designers, and fashionistas. Powerful and exciting, it can make a statement without doing anything. The hue complements almost all skin tones. Wearing red makes a bold statement that the wearer is in charge, and is full of excitement.

 

Be it fashion apparels or other fashion accessories, alluring shades of red run deep, charming people into the mix. Not only in fashion but this brings vibrancy to red decor or red theme too.

 

And yes, how can we not talk about beautiful, bold red lips. Luscious red lips are always talk of the town. In my opinion red lips can never go wrong, they always marks a presence whenever you wear them. And that similarly applies to the red nails also!!

 

 

Don’t wait and grab a hottest piece of this shade and add power to your wardrobe as this is considered to be one of the zealot shade.

Amp your wardrobe quotient with the shade Red and rock it!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO ALL YOU BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE OUT THERE!!!

Style Cap: Red looks eternal when wear with Black. So combine these two unique shades of the universe and rule the world. Red on red also gives the fuller feel to this extraordinary shade, so you can try that too.

“Bright reds, Scarlet pillar, box red, crimson or cherry are very cheerful and youthful. There is certainly a red for everyone”- Christian Dior

SLEEK PONY V/S BLOWN OUT

SLEEK PONY v/s BLOWN OUT

Hi girls, let’s talk about our beautiful hair this time, which we always want to style different everyday. Yes, literally everyday but I know that it is not as easy as it looks but still we can make it happen! Hair is an integral part of our life and whenever it comes to style them we need to try different approaches it is just not one to rest upon. So in this blog post I am going to have a stiff fight between Sleek Pony and Blown Out look and ask you pleasing people out there to ballot for the style you applaud right now:)

So are you going to keep up the volume of your hair or keep it super sleek!! Think and try.

Both of these styles are absolutely unique in them, and complement according to the jaunt or occasion.

Sleek Pony is more of a debonair and ultra-fine hair style whereas Blown out is kind of free spirited and valiant hair style. In my opinion we should try both the styles at continual intervals and can look different whenever we want!

Lets talk about SLEEK PONY first:

What Do We Need: Hair serum, a rubber-band, shine boosting shampoo and hair volumizer.

How Do We Do It:

1) To get this look add hair serum of good quality to damp hair.

2) Sweep all your hair to one side and fix it with a rubber band just behind your ear.

3) With a flat iron, straighten out the kinks in the loose hair or rub on some shine serum on your crown to control any fly-aways.

4) This side -swept Sleek Pony tail is considerable for an elaborate night out.

 

Now Lets talk about BLOWN OUT:

What Do We Need: Super thick volumizer, curl enhancing hair mousse and a round hair brush. Nothing much to look like a million bucks!!

How Do We Do It:

1) To achieve this look, spritz a volumizing product on the roots of your hair.

2) Using a huge round brush, pull your hair upwards while drying for maximum volume.

3) Finish with a small dollops of mousse at the ends.

4) Blow out hair intensify the volume and make your look sophisticated and chic.

 

So peeps, vote and choose for your favourite hairstyle and go convivial.

I am going to keep on writing posts on hair/make-ups and will ask for your opinions and polls. So folks stay tuned for more posts in future.

ROAD TO VELVET

ROAD TO VELVET

“My six favourite textures for fall and winter are leather, fur, tweed, mohair, velvet and wool. I love that they are all as warm as they are fashionable and easy to incorporate into your wardrobe”- Nina Garcia

Hi pretty girls who wants a component of royalty in their wardrobes, I want; because having this plush piece of cloth in my closet amp my fashion game and this one piece known as to be Velvet. This is a fabric which is not meant to wear all year long, as this is a cloth for cold climate, this can’t go very well in hot and humid weather. Whenever it comes to velvet regal feel comes to my mind which no other fabric has.

 

Velvet is a type of woven tuffted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. This fabric has often been associated with nobility. Cairo was the world’s largest producer of velvet.Velvet can be made from several different kinds of fibers, traditionally, the most expensive of which is silk. Much of the velvet sold today as “silk velvet” is actually a mix of rayon and silk.Velvet made entirely from silk is rare and usually has market prices of several hundred US dollars per yard.

 

Velvet is capturing hearts everywhere and is now taking fashion runways by storm, it is trending fashion of 2017 which according to trend setters will continue in 2018 too.

Velvet is opulent, rich and very royal fabric which adds luxury to your appearance and makes any outfit uber luxurious.VELVET, a silken textile fabric having a short dense piled surface. In all probability the art of velvet-weaving originated in the Far East; and it is not till about the beginning of the 14th century that we find any mention of the textile. The peculiar properties of velvet, the splendid yet softened depth of dye-colour it exhibited, at once marked it out as a fit material for pastoral vestments, royal and state robes, and sumptuous hangings; and the most magnificent textures of medieval times were Italian velvets.

There are varieties of velvet such as Crushed, Embossed, Hammered, Lyons, Panne, Velveteen, Pile -on-Pile or Utrecht.There are tons of affordable options you can even afford it at the price of $50 or less. From velvet jumpsuits, pants, skirts, camisoles to velvet accessories like clutches or velvet bags or shoes pick any piece and indulge yourself in a bit of royalty by adorning this fine fabric.

 

Make sure to have key velvet pieces that will keep you ahead of the curve in style. Minimalist pieces like velvet choker can do miracles too. So go girls grab a look for your royal self and add that palatial effect!

 

Style Cap: Try to layer your velvet pieces with other textures to add more drama. For that plush look style your velvet dress with velvet booties and textured robe jacket.

CHOCOLATE LOVE!!

CHOCOLATE LOVE!!

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt”- Charles. M. Schultz

 

Hi sweet people of the world! Sweet people because obviously you all are so sweet and other reason for this much sweetness is because today’s post is about having a sweet tooth in fashion or in other words having a love for chocolate colour palette. Just in case you can’t get enough of eating chocolates, you can wear it!

 

To know more let’s go back in mid-eighteenth century British colonial commerce; chocolate appears as a colour. It is not meant something to eat or drink initially but to wear. I am not talking about Brown colour here, chocolate means chocolate.

 

Chocolate could say something in clothing in that society. It had not marked quite in that way before. Some people considered it brown, but it did not maintain a consistent place in eighteenth century colour schemes. Therefore colour chocolate in particular, helped define turning points from the splendid to the conventional, the sublime to mundane, and for this reason it offer us a way to profoundly understand personal choices and public personas.

 

Chocolate colour clothing has absolutely different standards( I am not talking about Brown here, it is just another shade; yes it is!). It is not only a versatile colour that will flatter all skin tones, but also really pop and make most of your look brilliant when paired with gold, beige, cream, green or yellow accessories.

No doubt this colour legit feels like a real warm hug from your favourite person or drinking a hot chocolate milk in winters. So ladies grab season’s special colour for your wardrobe. Go for chocolate suede dress or cotton blend parka with hoodie, or chocolate hand bag along with suede chocolate boots!!Feels yummy!! And to amp you summer cocoa palette go for some nice chocolate colour frilled dress or nice cocoa camisole or best you can do is have a nice chocolate colour palazzo with cream top or beige topwear!!

 

Style Cap: To amp your chocolate quotient add a modern edge to your overall chocolate look with metallic accessories. As I have done it in the set above(polyvore set).
