Shades of Red Sarees

“Ek chutki sindoor” the famous dialogue from the movie “Om Shanti Om” is as famous as the charisma of sindoori ‘the sacred red’, that has led the hue to dominate bridal trousseau wear since the inception of marriage as an institution.

The symbol of love, passion and even intense drama is often hailed as an auspicious colour in the spectrum of hues.

No Hindu wedding is complete without this colour. We have curated shades of this colour in different saree fabrics that we have to offer.

Trends which made come back in 2016.

c.jpg

Trends often reflects the society. Important personalities in history have also had an impact on fashion, but no matter how competitive and innovative the Fashion industry is, it actually has to follow what is called the “Fashion Cycle”, which has no specific measurable time period. Some styles sustain for longer period of time. Some die out soon, and some styles come back years after they were declined.. So we can say that fashion changes with time and has always been evolving to fit the taste, lifestyle and demands of society. It is only natural that the new trends are introduced to the public gradually.

Take a look at these vintage styles from our mom’s generation that is making a comeback this season.

Flared bottoms

To ace this trend, all you need to do is raid your mom’s closet or trunks from years gone by and take out her flared bottoms. This ‘hippie’ style accentuates your figure like no other. You can pair them with high heels and off-shoulder tops and you are good to go. The perfect blend of quirk and bohemia, these vintage bottoms are comfortable and snug, and our moms loved wearing them a lot back in the 70s.flared bottoms

Big geek Glasses

The giant geeky glasses and tinted shades are making a huge comeback and how. Think Zeenat Aman and Dum Maaro Dum and you know what we are talking about. Ask your moms and they will tell you how big a rage they were back in their time. And luckily for us, this retro trend is back in vogue. Myriad shapes and different hues, you can pair these glasses with your wardrobe and look retro-chic.

High Waisted Denims

There is a reason why they are called the ‘mom jean’ because they love you back. The silhouette may be super unflattering but boy oh boy, are they snuggly? Your Pinterest feed is flooded with fashion bloggers giving a big thumbs up to this retro style. These high rise pants were a rage back in our moms’ time and it is here to stay.

Fringes and Tassels

Tassel Fringe is in! Yes there is still plenty of 70s- and Western-inspired suede fringe walking down the runways and on the streets these days. Get your boho-chic on and flaunt your fringe in accessories and clothes.

Chokers

Revamp your wardrobe and give it that extra edge with beautifully embellished chokers. This trend has made a huge comeback since the 70’s and many Indian celebs have been sported flauting their necks in style. Your mom in the eighties was definitely donning these beauties and so should you.

Big Hoop Earrings

When it came to earrings back in the seventies, the bigger was definitely better. And this decade too, stands by it. Sneak into your mother’s jewellery box and gorge on your mom’s favourite gold hoop earrings.

Block heels

If you are hunting for big chunky heels, you need to look no further. Prod your mother to take out her old platform heels for you. These may not be super comfortable but hey, who said vanity was easy.

Peasant Blouses

The flowy silhouette was everything that the seventies stood for; nonchalance and freedom. Our mothers will tell us that. The peasant blouses have made a huge comeback in 2016 as well. This hippie style is effortless, casual and modern.

Winged Liner

Made famous by Sharmila Tagore and Hema Malini, the winged liner was quite the rage back in our mother’s time. Before we even heard of the winged liner, our mothers were casually applying feline flicks on their eyes. Seventies, was the decade when the cat eye look was at its most dramatic. winged liner.jpg

Kaftans

This flowy garb from the seventies has returned to the fashion scene, like never before. You can wear it as a beach cover up or to a date and look flawlessly elegant. Or you can tweak your mother’s old Kaftans and give them a refreshing makeover.

Time to raid your mom’s closet and borrow those enviable pieces now.

The Best Colors for your Skintone

Untitled-1

The right Color can make or break a look. Be it muted shades or bright ones, every skintone has a couple of colors that makes it pop! Most of us are weary to get out of our comfort zone and experiment with certain colors which we presume doesn’t suit us.

But now it’s time to break out of such preconceived notions and find out which colors are best suited for your skintone.

Read on to find out more:

FOR PALE/FAIR SKIN
Find yourself constantly looking for shade from the summer sun? And do you have pale skin with light features? Then hues that clearly contrast with your skin tone will – quite literally – bring some colour to your complexion. Darker colours like grey, brown, burgundy, bottle green, navy and bolder shades of blue will all work well as these shades contrast with your skin tone. Pastel shades can wash you out, so we recommend you be careful while picking out lighter tints. Powder Blue and Blush Pink can do wonders, but only when paired with bolder bottoms.

FOR OLIVE/MEDIUM SKIN
If you’ve got olive-toned skin that tends to tan rather than toast in the sun, then you have what’s known as a ‘warm’ complexion which suits a much wider spectrum of colours than those with fair skin or ‘cool’ complexions. While most colors suit your complexion, opt mostly for shades that are either a little brighter or darker than the middle ground. Choose pale beige rather than warm sand if you’re opting for light neutrals or try a bolder shade of purple (such as magenta) rather than mauve, for example. Metallics and Neons work well with your complexion as well, so do remember to put it to good use.

FOR DUSKY/DARK SKIN
The colour of your skin is perfectly positioned to marry well with the vast majority of hues and shades, as it doesn’t run the risk of being washed out like comparatively pale skin tones. Contrary to popular believe, you have a licence to wear bold, bright colours like scarlett red, jade green or cobalt blue but be mindful of adding balance to your outfit with a containing colour, which will hold the look together. While black, brown and navy are key colours in anyone’s wardrobe, it’s worth keeping these to a minimum to really make the most of your especially versatile skin tone.

Now that you know which Colors to opt for, it’s time to splurge on some perfect dresses for your beautiful complexion!
