Embrace the waterproof make-up: We know how it feels when the makeup refuses to stay on the skin and gets washed out either in the humidity or the downpour. But yes, you can look your best with few simple makeup tricks, even during the messy season. Restrict your make-up to the minimum and use waterproof products.

Take good care of skin: Don’t forget that monsoons demand a little extra care for your skin, as there is already a lot of moisture in the air that can make your skin rough and dull. Use skin packs to keep your skin breathing.

Hair care: Go for an uncomplicated hairstyle, which doesn’t require regular maintenance. It’s best to keep a messy, wavy hairstyle, as the rain will only add up to the style. Washing your hair daily with a good mild shampoo is advisable so that your scalp remains clean all the time.

Jeans Guide: How to choose a perfect fit for your body type?

Jeans are a fashion staple in every woman’s closet, but the style of the jeans you wear can make or break your look. If you choose your jeans based on your body shape, you’ll be able to confidently put your best foot forward whenever you step out of the house.

All of us have different shapes, sizes and styles, so finding the right pair of jeans can be a task. Luckily there are tips and tricks for each of you for finding the perfect pair of jeans! All you need to do is follow a few of these steps and remember them when heading to the changing room of your latest denim department.

hourglass

Hourglass Bodyshape

You ladies are a lot luckier with this body shape as you can get away with most things and look great. With a hip to bust ratio of 50/50 and a slim waist, it’s all about the styling and keeping your proportions balanced. Here are some great jeans to look for:

Skinny Jeans – These are the most flattering on hourglass shapes. Your chest and hips are in proportion with each other already so showing your legs off in skinnies only highlights that point. Bootcut jeans can actually overwhelm you and hide your frame.

Higher rises – High rises are recommended because the waistband will sit at the smallest part of your waist, this will also give the illusion of an even slimmer middle.

Medium size back pockets – Don’t go too big or too small with your back pocket sizing, it’s important to enhance your butt so choose wisely!

Skinny flare – If you want to do flared jeans, I would say choose a pair that are tight and skinny all the way to the knee and then give off a slight flare. This is much more flattering.

Flares – If you are a much more curvy hourglass that above and carry a lot of weight on the hips, a flared jean will really help balance that out.

rectangle

Rectangle Bodyshape

Most often like the super model shape with extra height, long legs and a straighter hip area, you can find it hard to get jeans to fit in length and be flattering and feminine. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of choices for you. Look out for these:

Inseams – If you want to go for a smart look, long inseams are the way to go as they will make you sleek and clean. If you prefer something more fashionable and love the look of jeans with ankle boots, go for a cropped skinny and cuff them with your ankle boots. This will give more depth to your shape and lessen your height a little bit while looking chic.

Skinny Jeans – Skinnies are always your best friend as they show off your figure beautifully. Just be sure to pick the most flattering pair for your butt and thighs.

Skinny Flares – You can also get away with skinny flares as you have the height to pull it off. Don’t do baggy flares as they will overwhelm you, so make sure the flare starts below the knee and the fit above is tight.

Rises – If you want to show off your height, go for a high rise, but if you want to make your legs more proportional, a low rise will work wonders.

Boyfriend Jeans – Luckily, you can get away with boyfriend jeans and make them look amazing! Go for a slimmer fitting boyfriend and it will look great.

triangle

Triangle bodyshape

With more curves around the hip and butt and a smaller upper half, it can be harder to find jeans that balance out your proportions and are flattering rather than awkward. You look out for jeans with these fits:

Bootcut or wider flares – These will help balance out the hips and keep your legs in proportion with the extra fabric around the calves.

Long inseams – Having a longer length means you can wear heels under your flares and bootcut jeans. This will of course elongate your legs and make them look slimmer.

Higher rises – You should buy jeans with a higher rise as they are very balancing to your shape.

Larger pockets – It’s important to enhance your booty since you are blessed with it, so look for larger back pockets as small ones can make it look bigger.

Stretch denim – Always look for stretch denim as it will hug your body better, creating a more sleek silhouette. Plus, it’s not as restricting as rigid denim.

Boots – If you do want to go for a skinny jean,  you should tuck them into boots as it will help balance out the hips more and create a better shape.

Inverted Triangle Bodyshape

Round Body Shape

For those of you who carry your issues around your tummy area and always struggle to find jeans that are flattering or give you that shape you are looking for, there’s definitely options for you too! Embrace your body shape and work with it rather than against it. These are some tips to look for:

Skinny Jeans – Skinny jeans can look really good when they are paired with a floaty, gypsy style top as this will hide your problem area but the skinnies will still be fitted, creating a balanced look.

Rises – If you are more curvy and you want to hide your stomach, you should opt for a high rise jean as this will hold everything in. If you are a more slimmer apple shape then lower rise jeans can give you a more curvy appearance.

Trouser Jeans – If you want to balance things out, you should go for a trouser style jean as the wider leg from hip to foot will help with proportions.

Want to look Stylish at all times??

Here are a few, easy to follow tips that most Chic women have cultivated, to look polished at all times:

Dress for the occasion: Make an effort to find out what’s the dress code for any occasion, whether it’s ethnic or western, modern or conservative. This will help you in dressing appropriately and looking dignified.

Wear clothing as per your bodyshape to camouflage body variations.

Plan your Outfit the Night Before: Besides making you look your best, it also saves you from the stress next morning.

Keep some additional time in the morning for getting ready: Fix your alarm 15-30 minutes prior. This will give you sufficient time to apply your make-up, fix your hair, wear matched accessories and shoes. Also, for any other unforseen situations…

Plan the Right Undergarments based on your outfit: The foundation to looking great is well supported bras, panties and shapewear. For example, wearing nude bra rather than a white one under a white shirt will always look more appropriate.

Follow Other Stylish Women, fashion magazines & websites for Inspiration: This awareness only helps in understanding fashion and style more closely.

Cheers to many more Stylish Looks!

6 Ways to ace Pregnancy Fashion

cover

Pregnancy Fashion has become mainstream in many ways. We either come across celebrity divas like Kim Kardashian and Kareena Kapoor flaunting their baby bumps or we see brands launching exquisite collections dedicated to maternity fashion – either way we know that the concept of “dressing up” during your pregnancy is here to stay.

Today we talk about how you can ace this “super-mom” trend and look like a million dollars showing off your baby bump!

GO FLOWY
Maxi dresses are a pregnancy must. They are the perfect marriage of comfort and style. It hugs your body and flows gently out, concealing all bottom heaviness. Accessorize the look with a bright bag and super comfy wedge heels — go the color-block way as that has enough of a platform to be comfortable and is trending right now. This is a great option for women, as are kitten heels or ankle booties. We advise not to skimp on the accessories when dressing your bump. Use accessories to create a focal point and bring the attention up to your face with the long earrings or a statement necklace.

BE SHORT AND SASSY
Our mantra is to not forfeit your fashion identity to pregnancy. In pregnancy, hemline makes a big difference, opt for a short airy shirt-dress with bright gold accessories. A short flirty dress will always make you a little bit taller, and a baby doll is one of the most amazing little silhouettes. You can hardly see the bump hiding there then —super, super chic. An additional benefit to the look is its ability to translate to post-pregnancy style. After you have had the baby, you can style it with heels, add a couple of necklaces and still look just as glamorous. And if you’re wondering if pregnant women can wear high
short-dress

ELONGATE YOUR FRAME
When you are pregnant you never want to wear a choker, it makes you look squatter and shorter. Longer necklaces draw the eyes down, while dangling earrings bring the focus to a woman’s neck and shoulder. Scarves can also help pregnant ladies create a laid-back luxe look. The point of this look is putting all of her accessories in a way to make her look longer and leaner. The scarf does a few things: It adds the print, it adds the color, it also makes her look longer and leaner.

DON’T GO BIG
It’s natural to feel uncomfortable about your growing midsection. Your first instinct may be to buy some cheap tops at Target that are one or two sizes bigger than your regular size. Big enough to cover your belly. But big, baggy clothes on the biggest part of your body will only make you look…well, big. So if you haven’t yet embraced your inner “I am pregnant, hear me roar,” know that by wearing baggy clothes, you’re not fooling anyone. In fact, you’re actually making yourself look larger than you really are, which I’m assuming is not the effect you’re going for.
form-fitting

FABRIC IS IMPORTANT
When buying maternity clothes that you hope will last through several pregnancy stages, choose high-quality, well-made items. Ideal maternity clothes will be made with strong, stretchy material that will grow with you, so they’ll stay snug, flattering and supportive as your body changes. Breathability, softness, durability and stretch are the things to look for in high-quality, comfortable maternity clothes. Natural fabrics such as cotton, modal, and bamboo will be soft and breathable — helping you with those pregnancy hot flashes and itchiness that are so common. Blended jersey made from those natural materials together with Spandex or lycra deliver the stretchiness, support and shape retention you need to accommodate your body as it changes.
comfy-fabric

KEEP THE HEELS AT HOME
Avoid Stilettos as far as possible as those precious high heels cannot give your back the support it needs during your pregnancy. Opt for comfortable dressy flats that will take you from day to night. T-strap sandals, classy ballerinas or even trendy loafers can be your soulmate for those nine months. Size up a half size to accommodate your growing tootsies. After baby comes, stash them away for next time or thank them very much and pay it forward to the next lucky lady.

How to Shop Online – Part 3

Untitled-2

For this Final part of our guide to shop online,  we will discuss the return policies and wallet payments related to all online shopping sites. These are the areas most consumers have the maximum doubts about.

So today we will discuss what one can do to minimize the chances of making blunders during online shopping.

Also, if you by chance want to return the product you bought online or are facing payment issues – don’t worry, every online site has strict policies about customer service and full refunds, so you’re in safe hands 🙂

BE  AWARE OF THE TERMS & CONDITIONS OF THE SITE
Every site has their very own terms and conditions so before you place an order, make sure you have read all the terms thoroughly. Most sites have easy accessibility to the Q&A page or Terms&Conditions page, so missing that out and blindly placing an order could be a risky process. 
So the next time you go shopping online, don’t forget to visit this page which just might save you the trouble of going through a painful return/refund process all together!

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 12.24.22 AM

READ EXCHANGE & REFUND POLICIES 
This is probably one of the most neglected segments. Return/Exchange/Refunds are a major headache for any consumer so to avoid such an unpleasant situation, make sure you carefully handpick your desired product after going through the size guide and fabric quality matters. Even after this thorough check if the product received still doesn’t appeal to you a return request can be raised. 
More importantly, it is important to know that online sites have different variations of sellers who have their own terms on return. Some products can be returned only within 2 days of delivery whereas for others it can be as delayed as 15 days. Hence it is of utmost importance that you read the exchange and refund policies for that specific product/brand carefully. 

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 12.24.55 AM

MAKE ONLINE PAYMENTS 
We highly recommend making online payments through net banking, credit/debit cards or various online wallet services. This not only saves you the hazard of keeping change for the delivery boy when your product arrives but also makes refunds easier. 
Most of us these days don’t prefer keeping a lot of cash with us, hence online payment saves you the harassment of going to an ATM and picking up cash just for your Cash-On-Delivery courier. Also, why we said refunds were easier is simply because once you request a refund the merchant will process that to your bank account. Hence if they already have your bank details from your online payment made, it becomes easier for them to transfer the refund amount into that same account.
