OOTD | How to Style A Black Crop Top In 5 Different Ways

Hi Girlies,

Dressing up or looking all dolled up makes me feel good. It makes me happy. That is why dress up game is my favourite. Yours?

So, I have made this post to show you a glimpse of dress up game I played today. ☺️

I styled this full sleeves crop top in five different ways. Colour of the top? You know how much I love the colour black. If you hadn’t, well, you know now. πŸ˜‰

I bought this crop top from Myntra. Β Some bottoms are bought from online store and some offline. Hehe.

Let’s get started with the looks.!

  • Β Boy friend jeans:

These are oversized jeans. I must say, they are too comfortable. I love wearing them especially on those days when I am feeling lazy to dress up but still want to look good. Haha we all have such days once in a while. True?

I usually keep accessories minimal or no accessory for such looks.

 

  • Palazzo:

I know I talk about this piece of cloth in most of my outfit posts. I just can’t help it. They are so comfortable and stylish that I love them a lot.

I had created a similar look with the same palazzo but a long top. Do you remember that post?Β 

Well, this is a look inspired by that one. But crop top looks more cooler. Know?

I wore these big white earrings to add more girly touch. 😌

I know this palazzo looks like a long skirt. Here is a pose to prove that it’s not a skirt. 😁

  • Monochrome:

Styling with single coloured outfit makes it a monochrome look.

Paired the same top with my favourite pair of black, stretchable, high waisted jeans.

Wore hoop earrings and kept the neck minimal. I personally like skipping neck accessory whenever I am wearing boat neck tops. Minimal the better for such pattern.

Also, included this silver, multilayered waist chain to add a pinch of spark to this monochrome look.

 

  • Skirt:

A favourite and comfortable piece of fabric loved by many – skirt.

Wore this striped pencil skirt along with the black crop top.

Chick look, perfect for brunch dates.

 

  • A touch of ethnicity:

Tried something new. Styled the same top with palazzo and twist to the look is the dupatta.!!

Draped the dupatta around to get a look of half sari. Added nice silver earrings and finger ring to increase ethnic look score. Plus, the bindi πŸ˜›

Tried with two different dupattas. I like the red one more. What about you? πŸ˜€

So, these are the looks I created with keeping the top as a common piece of fabric across all looks.

I hope you enjoyed the looks as much as I did creating them. πŸ€—

Black Dress And Bold Lips : OOTD

We all have two moods when it comes to dressing up – either we dress up like a homeless or we dress up like we are going to meet our worst enemy. Well I had a latter one kind of a day.

Thought that initiated this look is ‘bold lips’. You guys know how much I love lipsticks or any lip product in general. Seemed like my whole collection was wandering between different shades of either red, pink or some shades of n*de. Umm light, cool shades in general. Recently I came across some pictures of one of my favourite influencer @avantii2 on Instagram. She had carried these bold lips so elegantly that I had to, had to try my hands on them.

Lipstick alone is a great accessory you can carry. I did exactly that with this look. Tried these bold lips for the first time. I kind of like it. I used two shades of lipsticks from Elle 18.

About choosing this outfit. For the zillion time – Black is my happy colour. It’s classy, always. Winter is my favourite season of all. I love layering up. This black body hugging outfit is from the brand ‘Forever 21’. The turtle neck and the fabric is just perfect for a dinner night during chilly winter nights. The cold shoulder sleeves add some fun to the outfit.

It is still quite cold here in Pune. So just to increase the points in layering game, chose to wear these stockings.

Footwear – These black heels from the brand catwalk, bought online from Myntra.

OOTD : Shopping From My Own Wardrobe

“Ahhh I don’t have anything to wear…!!!” is a universal dialogue of girls. Typically said while they stand in front of their huge wardrobe. Sounds strange but yes that’s the real problem we all face, many a times.

Most of the girls love shopping (yes I have seen some exceptional cases who doesn’t like shopping at all. #SpareMe). We don’t really need an occasion to shop. Do we? But when we have occasion, we never avoid shopping. No matter how special the occasion is, we tend to buy new clothes to dress up.

If you are working lady, you will exactly understand what I am going to say next – During the start of the month we feel like shopping anything and everything. All thanks to the mobile apps who send you constant notifications about the offers and stuffs. Thus, we end up shopping more than what we need. By the end of the month, you might start regretting the money you wasted on the stuffs which you didn’t need. Ironically, if you clean up your wardrobe, there is high chance that you might come across at least a pair of clothes which you haven’t even worn at least once. Don’t you??? I have. **face palm**

So, to be guilt free and to stop wasting money, I have started a new thing, inspired by my favourite @wanderleen – shop from my own wardrobe.

How??? Just pick a piece of cloth and mix and match with different clothes and accessories you already own. Yes. That’s possible.

For example, I love this palazzo. Which I have worn multiple times with multiple tops/ Kurtis without wasting money on different jeans/ bottoms.

You know how we girls are. We buy nail paint/ accessories and then by matching outfit sometimes (trust me that happens sometime). So something similar was supposed to happen with me few days back.

One of my beautiful friends gifted me this beautiful embroidery dupatta. For which, I wanted to buy a plane black kurti. In spite the fact that my wardrobe is 60% filled with black clothes. #TypicalGirlIAm.

As it was a month end and making a hole in already torn out pocket was not at a good idea. So just give it a thought of having a glance at my wardrobe, check whether if something really goes with dupatta. Guess what??? I got this kurti which I had worn for this post. Where I had created a look inspired by Shraddha in the movie Stree.

From my Look book from the blog, found few more mix and match styles.

Styled this kurti in two different ways. One with jacket and one with signature laal(red) dupatta.

Look 2:

Blue crop top – with high waist jeans for office and with pencil skirt for a winter dinner date.

Look 2:

Styled this lehenga in two different way. One with long slit top and one with a blouse to give more festive look.

I am loving this shop from your own wardrobe thing. It’s economic, yet fun. Instead of going to a shop or shopping online, let’s try and shop from our own wardrobe and see how it turns out to be.

Bring out that stylist in you and try and enjoy the styling game. Let me know how it turns out to be.

OOTD: Angarakha Kurta

Hey,

One more OOTD post is here. Its again one of my favorite attire – Kurta and leggings.

But this kurta is something special. Not like it has any personal story of mine behind it. But because it has ancient history behind it.

It is a Angarakha Kurta from the brand Here&Now, bought from Myntra.

The word Angarakha means protect the body. So this particular pattern of garment was worn by men in ancient India to protect their body. You must have seen in old movies, men wearing such patterned upper garment. So this is basically an overlapping garment which is tied on the right or on left side of the shoulder. As it has tying with a knot facility, it was considered as most flexible and comfortable attire.

Well, it was a men’s wear in ancient India. But has entered wardrobes of women in modern India. Hehe.

This kurta is Angarakha patterned. I mean this is not exactly an overlapped and tied one. This is been stiched to look like Angarakha. Hehe.

The Navy blue kurta has this red and sky blue colored floral designs. The border of sleeves and kurta has this small design with off white color. The color combo is not loud it gives a calm look.

The deep v neck, the three quarter sleeves and the knot you see makes this Angarakha Kurta.

I paired it with comfortable fabric – black leggings.

For accessories, I happened to have earrings which exactly matched with this attire. The two step hanging earrings is of navy blue and sky blue combination. This is one of my street shoppings.

For neck I skipped the accessory.

I wore these different colored metal Bangles on one hand, my favorite pearl watch from Titan Raga collection on the other.

Completed the look with my comfy black Footwear from the trusted brand, Bata.

Did you like this outfit??? 😊
