Style is inherent. You either have it or you don’t. But, it can be acquired. For some, it comes easily, but for many, it’s a learning curve. Not everyone knows what styles suit him or her best. That’s where we come in. Last week we extended our services on Instagram to find out what style-related issues our followers were facing.
At the very beginning of this lockdown, I promised myself I would stay away (far, far away) from online shopping. We’re not going out, meeting people, going to work, parties or anywhere really, so why in the world would I need new clothes? At the very best I would put on a clean t-shirt to go down and get the mail but apart from that,
Last week I stumbled upon a denim skirt that I had kept away in my wear-again-someday closet and it actually made me happy to rediscover it! I had completely forgotten about its existence and it actually gave me the same feeling that shopping for a new item usually does. Recycling our own wardrobe is the new retail therapy at the moment and conscious buying is the need of the hour.
Just like clothes, every person has a distinct jewellery style. Some people like it edgy and ornate while others prefer more delicate and subtle styles. I for one belong to the latter. Not one to experiment much with everyday jewellery, I gravitate towards simple timeless styles, monochromatic looks and minimalistic designs, usually with an Indian twist.
Instagram is a great place to be. If you’re ever looking for inspiration; lifestyle, food, style or pretty much anything – you’ll find it on Instagram. As a longstanding loyalist, I’ve posted my fair share of #ootds to the ‘gram. I’m one of those girls who will conjure up an occasion out of thin air just to wear that new outfit I bought.
I have been a skinny jeans addict my whole life. Being on the petite side, skinny jeans were my go-to for literally everything, as it made me look more toned (without working out, so win-win), and fit like a dream.
I flirted with the idea of a different fit every time I went shopping, trying everything from a flare to a boyfriend to a straight cut pair (my least favourite).
Who is excited to go back to work? At the office we mean! Are you ready to ditch the ‘all-day pjs persona’ and wear actual going-out clothes? I feel like I have forgotten how to wear heels, or even just regular outside flats for that matter. Do you remember the everyday morning routine where you stood in front of your cupboard,
When was the last time you shopped a ‘non-essential’ item? My last fashion purchase was in January 2020. Yes, digest that! As we slowly creep out of the isolation slumber we have been in for the last three months, I can’t help but wonder, what are people shopping for right now?
If I had to make a list of things that I need and well,
Sometimes I feel like I’m wearing a uniform. White tee, jeans, flats and an oversized tote. It’s a combination I’ve worn countless number of times but somehow it manages to look different – every. single. time. The concept was somehow seeded when I was a teenager. “Mom! I have no clothes, what do I wear?” Which prompted my mother to tell me to look harder,
Did you know?
A single t-shirt and jeans you wear takes up to 20,000 litres of water to produce.
100,000 marine animals are killed each year by plastic waste, including microfibers which are used to make cheap clothing.
60% of all clothes used end up in the landfill within a year.
A single synthetic garment can generate more than 1900 indigestible,
Who remembers that moment that occurred once a year, where you got to shop for your ‘birthday party’ dress? It was definitely a highlight in my yearly planner and I can’t wait to bring the tradition back to life. The concept was simple; for one day, you got to look, feel, and behave extra special. And what’s more special than a very special dress?
Heels – we have a love-hate relationship with them. Take me for instance, I am all of five feet two and the idea of anything that makes me look taller (and slimmer!) is a dream come true. But the flip side is the discomfort. I inevitably remove my pair a swift thirty minutes into a party or conveniently find a place to sit.
