IMG_1033There is something about fashion that has always been said, or rather dictated. But this sartorial connect comes to us with experience, with our love for fashion, and with the need to stand out, even after being effortlessly comfortable in our outfit. But was that really possible without adding that glam co?

Yes!! Right from the 90’s till date and may be this fad will continue forever. The love for men’s clothes! Ladies, we do steal “men’s shirts”, don’t we? (Eye rolls)

So what?

Right from Tomboyish moments, to the real girl trend of boyfriend jeans and boyfriend blazers, we were hooked and how. It only gave us the liberating feeling. Isn’t being relaxed, effortlessly dressed and being told how sexy we look; a great feeling???

 This is what over-sized shirts do to me.

The best part is, how much ever we are hooked on to over sized shirts, we need no man for this inclination now! We can rather opt for these in stores now.

I am wearing ‘Denim Kiss’ over sized shirt from Fancy Pants on my plain white basics to bring in my summers with a twist! This shirt is easy, comfy, and sexy and over sized that I want to wear it on so many pieces. I have paired it with a basic bow belt and Corset heels.

As long as its not toooo over sized, its perfect to bring in my summers. The trick (I believe) is to cut down its boxiness, which is why I am giving my bust line a well-defined contour by adding in a casual belt.

 Meanwhile, life was happening, and this shirt gave me the perfect morning ensemble. We went to this newly opened place in town – GrandMama’s Café (Lower Parel)!! Beautiful, Beautiful and Really Beautiful are the first few words for this marvel place. I am not unveiling the details yet, they are all coming out with pictures and an honest review in my next article. So stay tuned in for more on ‘GrandMams’s Café’..

Thank you Fancy Pants for this western style Denim Kiss Oversize, I am loving it!

Love thyself,
 
Sincerely, Su!

For Denim on Denim, famously known as ‘Canadian tuxedo’, the secret is balance! Yes, this trend is so wrong, that its right and it is not going anywhere anytime soon.

On a casual day, I am running errands and finishing my shopping list in my super chic and comfy denim shorts, denim shirt and lace-up brogues (super love River Island). It instantly gives a street style vibe, effortlessly put together. Mixing of the washes is giving it a seamless flair and making it an ideal outfit to wear while out on the town. The noble thing about these pieces is that they are wardrobe staples and are sure to get a ton of wear on a daily basis, whether worn together or separately.

So styling the “D” Duo is not at all tricky, rather can be naturally put together. You can also see the A-listers follow the trend and get more inspiration on the same.

Bonus Tips – Dos & Don’ts:

Do: Use the denim advantage to highlight your body parts. As a rule, the lighter shades of denim draw more attention to the body parts they cover, while the darker contributes by giving a slimming effect. For many of us girls, it means, darker denim bottoms.

Don’t: No to denim accessories. No denim shoes, hats, handbags or any other accessory. Keep it confined.

Do: Keep it simple! Always works! With two denim pieces put together, less is more. So break it up with simple colours and neutral accessories to keep it clean. Nude / White / Browns.

Don’t: Match it all (never). Keep in mind not to wear the same weight and wash, especially if you’re a beginner.

Do: Play around with colours and the weight and wash of the denim. For beginners, mixing the right proportions is a must. Blues and whites and blacks and the shades can all be mixed and matched. Personal fav – chambray shirt with dark skinnies (Oh, So Fresh!).

Don’t: Do NOT mix up too many main elements / trends in the same look. Stay away from too much boho; you don’t want to look like a caricature. Minimal is the way to go.

Do: Distress. Don’t be afraid to rip your denims away (shorts or jeans). There is something about distressed denim look. The style and the attitude make it very chic and modish, giving you the refined look.

Don’t: Never go back in the days to take inspiration on this look, which undoubtedly went so-so-wrong-wrong. Example: Justin Timberlake and Britney spears (do check them out), you can never go this wrong then!

Do: Dress to tell. You can always up your look by adding statement slinky heels, sophisticated blazer or an outstanding lip colour.

So we are definitely breaking the rules by this combination. But, ey, don’t your eyes love it? Have you tried the denim on denim yourself? If yes, as always, we would love to see it! Please share your pictures and tag us on Instagram @sincerelysu.official and #SincerelySu, so that we can share your style inspirations with our beautiful readers.

Love thyself,

I always like to plan my look in and around something prominent. But thinking about our day-to-day looks, we are all jammed in the same stock of attire: pants / skirts, tops / shirts, heels / flats, jackets and more. Accessorizing with baubles and a scarf or bags can add extra fashion potential, but all this has been done and is always done. This is what I always keep crunching my mind on every time I have to dress up and go out, even though if it’s just a simple and basic look. I am always on the run to add more or make it less for it to be more kinda technique.

We have been introduced to so many new trends day after day, year after year, and some of them just keep recurring and refuse to perish (thank god)! Such is also the case with the most pervasive fad – Fringe (and of course my oh so fav – crop tops too)!

Yes, Fringe can be the tricky one to pull off, but it works truly well on jackets, skirts, dresses, also on accessories like bags and shoes. I tried various combinations and it worked really well, needless to say I fell in love with its fresh, yet edgy flair. So now, I wanted to push the quotient a bit more and wear it almost everywhere. Also, it is soft and feminine which gives everything a lil bohemian edge that is ever-so-sought-after inspiration. So how?

Can I shake my basic look a bit more?

Can I have something more fascinating flowing in everyday?

Can I have the cake and eat it too?

Then, who run the world, girls? We! We can absolutely do anything and everything we put our mind and heart to. That is – no news. So I clubbed it all to my run-of-the-mill basic look. Wore my fav Zara denim shorts, with a straightforward and simple fringe blue tank top (Zara again, thank you). Honestly, felt like tassels dancing around my body (and nobody is watching). Definitely a keeper! Also, it gave my everyday look an incredibly-cool-glamorous touch.

The bohemian element inspired me to wear my corset heels (booties) to complete the look. So, jump start your ABCs collection and don’t pass up this retro stimulated look.

In the end, what do you think about this fashion repeating itself? Fringe – Yes or No? Lets talk more…

 

Love thyself,

Sincerely, Su!

For the last few years now, working in a corporate firm in Manchester and in India (both), my only concern was ‘Mondays’ (actually even weekdays) – they are good & productive, but they are more consuming. Especially if you pay, even a lil attention to the hatred trolls and memes on Facebook and /or Insta about Monday mornings. But I would say, not all is lost if you get to take your style to work. Yay!

If our love for all things fashion has taught us a lesson, it is to hold your confidence high up and bone it like you own it.

How many of us really wake up and start our mornings singing songs of love and joy? And have an extra hour to try out various outfits? And finally pick out one impressive formal look together and wear it to your monday happiness? If this is your morning story, and this is you, then stop reading here.

Others (& me) 3 out of 5 times, we find ourselves running around trying to figure out ‘what to wear’, ‘what will look chic and yet be comfortable’, ‘how does my day look like’, ‘who will be wearing what’, ‘I have nothing to wear, ‘who will make my coffee’? Constant fight of thought’s while you are starring at those piles. Personally, one of the biggest challenge is to ‘dress smartly’ for a packed calendar.

BIG TIP: Organise your wardrobe and maintain it like that! You will always have more.

Now, one of my favourite approach is to pick attire that is versatile. Something, which can easily transition from glamorous at the office look to a late dinner & cocktail night. The 9am to 1am kinda look. These are those days where your hectic schedule does not allow you to change. A classy glamorous look is for all those sexy women around the sphere who rule the world, and would rather do it in style with sky rocketing high heels, bright seamless colours, painted lips and statement accessories that go day & night.

Well, as I always say, keep it simple; so for meetings, I am wearing my seamless pencil dress with neutral black toe lace pumps and delicate classy diamond and pearl accessories from Ted Baker. The tip is to infuse posh heels, rich fabrics, expensive perfume (a must, I am wearing Chanel No 5.), statement jewellery and a good bag.

After back to back meetings, I am was heading to my company’s private dinner & cocktail night at White Owl (lower parel, Mumbai). All I have done is folded my dress in a lil to make it look petite and crisp for a night out (who said you cannot curve your style skills;)) and changed my accessories to something more extravagant, to make a statement. I will add big statement earrings and rings for my fingers OR a showy necklace and small earrings to finish the look. It is imperative to stick to one big element for your look, not making it gaudy. I have also changed my heels to a solid colour, as I want to draw all the attention to my stunning jewellery. You can also style it with old metallic heels.

Now, Lipsticks last longer but gloss is more fun! So for nights like this, I pep up with a little gloss for the gleaming fresh look to match the spirit of the place that is so fine-looking and welcoming.

So, voilà, you are all set to go!!!

Love Thyself,

Sincerely, Su!

P.S. I am love with the freshly brewed artisanal beers at The White Owl. The place is young, relaxed and classy, yet easy. It is brightly lit and lively by day, warmer by dinner and progressively spirited as the night evolves! Sincerely, A Must Try!!!

If we have to say versatility loudly, it would be with a pair of ‘White Jeans‘!

They are young, relaxed and quite significant.  Coloured / patterned jeans are still in trend, making the simple denim style no more boring. Except some people still find it difficult to pair it with different attires. So no more qualms, why not stick to the timeless beauty ‘white’. The skilful  white jeans are not only easy to pair with just any colour / pattern / style, they look exceptionally pristine / chic (because it is neutral) and spontaneous (because they are denim).

Whenever given a chance, I like to jump back to my simple sense of style, where I like to keep things basic, yet proper, established and sartorial. The need to look dressed up and elite, even without wearing a dress, purely inspired this look. It was a last minute brunch plan with my girlfriends where I had no time to shake my head on what to wear. Of course, jeans are by far a harmless bet. So I chose white skinnies to add a lil kick-ass chic fashionista look. I do understand that everyone is not comfortable snug jeans, so you might go for a pair of straight fit denims, while we still maintain the sleek chic look we are aiming for.

Pairing it with a deep V cutout crop top to make it look oh-so-sexy, yet sophisticated with the choice of colour. To polish the look I have styled it with a pastel blazer that perfectly smartens-up a denim ensemble. The blazer has beautiful white lace detailing (still crushing over it) on the collar and the cuffs to make it more feminine and tasteful. Why go for a boring blouse (different colour/ pattern), when you can style white denims with a difference.

I am minimal on accessories to keep it classy, so a classy seamless DKNY watch & stoned bracelet is a look-perfect.

Now, my favourite way to finish this look would be by throwing in a worthy pair of footwear. In my opinion, a little bit of heel will definitely perk up the look and makes the simple denim look on-trend. You don’t have to over do with the heels, so 2”-3”inch tall will do the job.

So, tell us how do you style your white jeans?

As always, we would love to see it! Please share your pictures and tag us on Instagram @sincerelysuofficial and #SincerelySu, so that we can share your style inspirations with our beautiful readers.

BONUS TIP: Weather you wear white on white (I love), or white and chambray or white and whatever your heart desires (your personal flair) — you can never lose!

Love thyself,

Sincerely, Su!
