SulaFest has definitely been one of India’s most unique and fun festivals over the last 10 years! Yes, SulaFest 2017 was their 10th edition, once again with a potent mix of great food, wine, drinks, fashion and music.  SulaFest is held in Sula Vineyards, near the Nashik city, which ups the tempo of this music festival right from the beginning. This gourmet and music experience has only gotten better and bigger over the years attracting even better Indian and International artists from across the globe, playing varied genres and keeping the pulse high for the goers.

This year being the 10th edition, the festival tempted us for 3 days back to back! The artist lineup was power packed with popular names including- Dubioza Kolektiv , Infected Mushroom, Hilight Tribe, Bloc Party, Nucleya, Indian Ocean, The Raghu Dixit Project, Loco & Jam, Swingrowers, Ska Vengers and Afro Celt Sound System and many more. So hey, it was tons and tons of good music and fun and frolic. There was so much to indulge in than just the usual drinking.  SulaFest was a runaway success with thousands of people showing up from across soaking in the sun, wine, music and most of all the good vibes.

Drinking for 3 days (back-to-back) is just crazy. I must admit, it gets heavy and can induce sickness, which of course restrains one’s capacity to enjoy the moment to the fullest. Thank god, this time, I had my hangover shield – LIVitup! It helped me not only survive the fest, but also enjoy it till the very last day to the maximum. It had me feeling lively and light (Well, pictures say it better.)

Yes, you heard me right. There is finally a product so good, that it can help you wake up to a hangover free morning. LIVitup is an Ayurvedic liver protector & hangover shield (2-in-1), 100% natural, FDA approved, and has no side-effects. Dr. Vaidya’s LIVitup prevents hangovers in the short-term, as well as  liver cirrhosis in the long-term.

Ahmmm wait, why don’t you try it for yourself?

Love thyself,

Being Effortlessly Fashionable is SEXY!

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!

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!

Since the last 6 months now, I have been cleaning my closet to get a better picture of what all am I really missing out on. As a ‘trend loving’ girl I have so much, yet I never have clothes, is what made me clean out. I got much of my stuff altered, gave away clothes and jewellery out of goodwill and got it all organized. So now I know what all is actually missing from my basic ‘must have’ list. I want more of buttoned down, clear and fresh shirts!

 Granted that I do not work in a corporate world anymore, I have stopped wearing those formals and nicely fitted flowy shirts. They are just not a part of my uniform anymore. And this just doesn’t seem right to me.

 Well, my vibe has always been modern, edgy, yet sophisticated. I want to make the traditional staple feel fresh by adding a lil drama (ofcourse). So, the easiest way a girl can look her best effortlessly? Yes! Is by investing in a good fitted white shirt.

 SS TIP: Every girl should “own” a white shirt and an LBD / LBJ!

 The classic white – a must have item, will always help one keep the look simple and definitive. There are various ways to wear it and highlight your assets correctly.

Now, wearing the white shirt also comes with a lot of do’s and don’ts and doubts. In order to get the perfect fit, I would never wear a tank top inside my white shirt and keep the top buttons open. Never is the word. I rather would invest in one good fitted shirt (avoid anything boxy, it will make you look big, and alterations can always be done).

Keeping the white shirt white is also a problem, especially in India. They do need to be replaced and I would say they have a lifespan on 20- 24 months only, depending on your usage. However, till then maintaining them is the key. Even though dry cleaning is a lil expensive, I would highly recommend dry cleaning them after atleast 2-3 wears. This will help retain its color, shape, and crispness. Girls, please avoid sprays and deodorants. Specially, as it causes yellowing in the armpits and after repeatedly done, these marks do tend to hold on forever. Do not rub any make up (near the neck) to avoid dirtying of your crisp shirt. Also, be careful with bleach. Even if you don’t realize, it will eventually make it dull.

White Shirt is one of the most affordable fashion items and it keeps you covered for a job interview, office wear, everyday leisure time or even when you have to make a statement. Getting the basics right can help you do it all with White!

You can customize the whole look by throwing in accessories such as scarves, belts, bags and jewellery and even play with cardigans, jeans, skirts and shoes.

 Here I have kept it very simple as I am wearing a super fitted Ramanika white shirt and have button the cuffs, as prim as Audrey Hepburn. The sexiest length of the sleeve is the mid-forearm; you do not want to push the limits making it too casual. I have accessorised with a Bronze gold shirt collar. Beneath, a cute flair green skater skirt. To highlight the look I have worn a colour pop LYDC (London) handbag and Red Lips (Oh, yeah)! I am going for a meeting and want to look curt yet charmingly pretty so lenskart completes my look with those sharp frames.

Ta Da!!

End note, I love necklaces with shirts. Whether you button up your shirt all the way up till the collar and add a beautiful editorial statement neckpiece OR unbutton your shirt low (ofc, not too low) and wear a long neckpiece that will dangle just on top on your bust line. The wonderful thing about white shirts is ‘how versatile they are’, isn’t 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!

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!
