And the adventure begins!!!

The D-Day, the day when the Bride To Be is nervous, yet in love; she is holding on to so many small details, yet hoping to create magic. Yes the D- Day when all of it is just going to be worth it and beyond. She wants to enjoy the little things, and also hope that many more good things come to her in abundance. Along with so much excitement, she is also holding up to her outfit and more importantly her jewellery..

Well, an indian bride for sure knows that her wardrobe is incomplete without those jewellery pieces that make her feel so special. Specially on her big day, where she is wearing the most exquisite pieces to create that magic.

I would say, select them with keenness to detail as they are a part of your most expensive legacy and memory. Totally layer up them jewels, so that they can be worn many-a-times than just once. That leads me to the most talked and adapted trend this season ‘The Choker Fad’. 90’s did you say? Ha well, they have been lurking since forever, but somewhere we knew that their being in the style spot was always inevitable. The best part is, you can go single or style them up with absolutely anything, or any attire.

Why drop this trend on the D Day ? Narayan Jewellers helped me skilfully pick some stylish, yet so elegant pieces for my D-Day. Specially a gorgeous gold & vilandi choker with accents of pearls & emeralds like this! Its a total YAY with a long necklace like this one, which gives it an opulent look. The necklace having a square, intricately constructed pendant in gold pieces with vilandi strung with strands of pearls makes it stand out inspite of all the layers. Wearing two different necklaces together is extremely popular and sensible as it gives an opportunity to wear those pieces separately later in any desired manner. So hey, that adds up to a lot of evenings that embark your presence.

A maang tikka to highlight your gorgeous forehead, stack of vilandi, jadau & gold bangles for your beautiful hands, statement vilandi rings to adorn your fingers, and a nose ring with a string of pearls that slides by your cheek completing your look; are a must wear for the special lady of the evening. These pieces are carefully crafted to perfection with enamelled paintings even on the inside (a very intricate detail that will not be observed by everyone, only for the eyes of the wearer to fulfil the desire to feel nothing less than a queen). These jewels, promise of a lifetime, chosen carefully by your family & you, lovingly handcrafted for you by the most sought after designers of the time – Narayan Jewellers; to celebrate your big day!

As they say life is a beautiful ride, but it can be made more beautiful with lots and lots of love and some gorgeous jewels…;) Get your mojo on and pick some fascinating pieces from none other that Narayan Jewellers.

Love thyself,

Being Effortlessly Fashionable is SEXY!

Wearing: Denim Kiss Shirt from Fancy Pants, Corset heels Espirit, Uk.

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,

A Black Pencil Skirt! One of the timeless possessions a woman can own.

Yes, if you want to instantly sculpt your waist, look slimmer, enhance those curves and look well groomed, stock up your staple with a coveted Pencil Skirt.

Over the years, we have seen many trends and then we have also seen timeless styles. But no matter what when and how, the later will always have my heart. A pencil skirt is a perfect piece every woman should own as a wardrobe essential for that touch of elegance, sophistication and glam. Pencil skirts can be worn day and night, from casual to formal, and even parties.

This age-old style or rather ‘timeless’ trend has been there forever and is worn effortlessly by women of all body types. It might have started as an office ‘must-have’, but this enduring sheath really hasn’t limited itself to 9 to 5. Don’t believe me? Watch as I put this basic apparel to test and style it out in 6 different ways- from work wear to quirky fashion events to casual day wear with my girlies and to date-nights and to late-nights. Trust me, you will be covered everyday of this week.

However, before I carve my looks, I would like to highlight a few key pointers for wearing it well and multiplying your wardrobe with a single PENCIL SKIRT.

♥ Boost your finest features: If your bottom part is a concern, sticking to a solid colour pencil skirt is your best bet, especially black. Color your top with bold patterns, texture, mixing it up to build that illusion of curves.

♥ Dare to wear: Be adventurous, be bold and style new permutations. Mixed colours, crop-tops and folded / knotted shirts. This is a great way to show a little skin with that high wasted cover. And a high wasted pencil skirt is always flattering as it creates an impression of long legs, making you sexier.

♥ Take it easy: The look and feel of your pencil skirt should be smooth and easy. Especially when standing up, as bumps will show it is too tight. In that case, up your size and make it worth the stare.

♥ Slim it down: Good fit is important. Solids are important. Length is important. Also, Colour blocking is awesome with a pencil skirt to express your attitude. However, make sure that the darker shade is applied on the areas of your body which you are looking to slim down.

♥ Wear it in the Day: Wearing a basic colour pencil skirt (solid) can help you in any setting, whether a casual day, everyday meetings and even those last minute happy hours. Make sure you tuck your blouse / top in to emphasise your waist and define your outfit.

You will be amazed to see how easy, basic and wearable this Black Pencil Skirt is in various styles.

♥ Look 1: This bow-tie and pencil skirt was perfect for my daily official meetings and is easy to carry from 9 to 5. It gives me the verve to be sleek and chic, even at work.

♥ Look 2: This look was styled to make my pastel colour pump shirt look sensual, yet crisp for that formal and informal kinda day. Yes, it suited all off them.

♥ Look 3: I wore this for my girl’s night out! Big, Bold, Beautiful and SEXY! I must say, it got me the right attention and woo. There was black and white and gold and red and statement; perfect ingredients for my night out.

♥ Look 4: I wore this day to night for a fashion event and an evening out with my girls, making it fun and flirty and quirky.

♥ Look 5: This was positioned for a casual day look. I wanted that effortless basic and chic look for my daily wear. However pumping some colour with favourite Quirk Box staple clutch, really made it appeal well.

♥ Look 6: A gold glittery glam night out is something I live for and crave for. This look helped me satiate my hunger for that perfect spicy club night. Party On!

In the end, it just doesn’t get better than this! Its effortlessly classy and elegant, its feminine, so modern yet timeless, its sexy and my favourite; so much that its intoxicating! So get the look and get classy! I mean, toxic!!!

Love thyself,
Sincerely, Su!

Did we even realize how this year started with so many new hopes, ideas and ambitions, we welcomed the New Year, full of things that have never been. We were prepared for new chapters in our life and we closed, ended and tossed some in the sea. We chose and we chose to give away our love, have a broken heart, give up and then hang on. Time healed what reasons never did. We chose and we chose, again to let go, we chose dignity, and we chose to forgive others and ourselves. And then wonders happened! Isn’t life all about that, anyway?

Now we are bidding October a sweet goodbye (with a French kiss), but as long as we are breathing, in our eyes, we are just beginning new love!

 Talking about October, I have so much love for this month!! This is due to several reasons, which mainly include a lot of “celebrations”. Its starting festive, its parties, its weddings and was my birthday month! So as this month has given a start to so many celebrations, I try and keep things organized in advance. My mind is blown with so many beautiful outfits, SHOES, jewellery and accessories out there. I want it all (Oh, yeah!).

But most importantly, I have a ‘Shoe – Story’ to tell.

I came across this completely quintessential Shoes designer – Supriya Amin and her brand – The Shoe Shi Co. I am head-over-sparkly-shoes in love with these completely gorgeous and shoppable wedding (festive) footwear they make. From the comfort of how they are hand crafted to the glamour they add to my Indian wear says “WoW” out loud. I always want to have something pretty peeking out of my long tasselled anarkalis or long dresses or beautifully swaying saris at the weddings, specially to show off attractively done nails.  I love finding one-of-a-kind pieces like this and The Shoe Shi Co made it happen for me. I would say that craftsmanship of the Indians is showcased here.

They have a varied collection of many striking designs with different patterns, colours, fabrics and shapes. They had one for every occasion that I could just pick – wear – flaunt! They also customise one according to your whims and fancies. They are well made and cushioned, giving me that extra lil height without compromising comfort. I am totally crushing over how these gold, silver and all colours shine at me, and suddenly they all were just perfectly matching my outfits. The best part, they can be worn day to night – long after the wedding.

A complete mix of classic elegance, glitter, and hand made shine and goodness. It was simplicity well defined with feminism. Total love!

And then, a woman with good shoes can never be ugly; remember?!

P.S. Say ‘Hello’ to the wedding season with a perfect pair from The Shoe Shi Co. What are you waiting for; place your personal orders with them today for a pair for every occasion!! I already have!!

 

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.

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…

Darling, We Love White!

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!

Love ♥ My F’ Tale & My Red Dress!

The moment I saw this dress on ASOS, I ordered it. Once the dress was delivered, I fell in love! When I tried it on, it reminded me of a fairy tale (we all know Cinderella and her glass shoe). That inspired me to do this shoot and sprinkle some magic of love & freedom (for who “I” am and whatever “I” want to wear).

Fierce and fantastic, the ultra charming red dress can be something you can never say “NO” to. Undoubtedly wearing red would surely be my style, specially this dress wrapped in romantic lace, is a sheer delight. The illusionary high neck bodice has full sleeves and a flawless fit to show off your figure. Making a statement by adding drama, yet sophistication with its high low hemline.

Ah, isn’t this dress gorgeous? 

This dress serves dam well, even when you are unsure weather to wear a short dress or a long dress. If you want a pattern that will stand out, high low hem is the answer. Not on this dress, but a belt instantly compliments a high low hem dress and not to mention it accentuates your figure.

You can always accessories it in right proportions (very important). A dress that speaks so much, I would love to keep it minimal and classy. I will also love the way rings with gemstones and / or a particular metallic will compliment my look by adding a lil extra sparkle.

Shoes are essential to emphasis high low hem dresses, as legs are surely highlighted in this style. So to slenderise  your calves, heels or stilettos are a must wear. Also, heels will always empower your look and confidence.

The personal expression of who you are, every time you dress up lies in how you carry what you wear, wherever you go. So girls, get up | dress up | show up and please don’t forget your sexy buoyancy and a matchless smile!

Love thyself,
Sincerely, Su!
