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!

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…

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!

WEARING: Asos Red sheer lace dress, Zara red pumps, earrings from Accessorize (India), rings from Ted baker, Pipa Bella, Style fiesta, MAC Ruby woo lipstick.

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!
