Styling Clothes You Already Have

It’s super easy to go out and buy pieces from the latest seasonal collections, but always remember, style can’t be bought! At the end of the day, style depends on you and how you end up putting together your outfits. The beauty of styling is that its ABSOLUTELY FREE! I’ve put together a few tips and tricks that will add some personality to your existing outfits.

Roll it:

Long sleeves are meant to be rolled, PERIOD! It is the easiest way to add a cool factor to the most classic, stiff formal shirts.

1

Fold the damn jeans!

The hemlines of the jeans usually end up covering the best bit of any outfit – the shoes! Roll it up from the bottom and show off those heels! This is such an effortless chic look.

2

Drape it: 

This is the best way to make any outfit look expensive and chic. I’ve done this plenty of times with my long coats and I absolutely love it. You automatically start feeling cool!

3

Knot it: 

The best way to define a waistline is by knotting the shirt right in the middle. It is more playful than just tucking your shirt in.

4

The half tuck: 

Rather than completely tucking your shirt in, try tucking half in and half out. It conveys a more casual look.

4

Belt it: 

The easiest way to define your waistline is buy adding a belt over and oversized top. It takes a minute to throw on and completes the entire outfit!

Tips: Make your legs look longer

Hello beautiful people!

Quite recently I was at an event where I was told that I’m super lucky to be tall! As much as I love my height, I love heels, I invest in em and keep collecting them. I don’t wear them as much mainly cause I feel I look abnormally tall in ’em. But I love collecting them.My sisters hate me for it but I usually get away with it (perks of being the youngest child!)

So today, I’m going to share a few tips and tricks that will help you look taller by making your legs look longer.

  1. Aim High: invest in plenty of high waisted jeans and skirts. They look best with tops tucked in, they’re super easy to style and are definitely flattering.

     

  2. Choose your shoes wisely: always wear the right kinda heels that match your trousers or rights. Nude heels are a must have!
  3.  Skirt it up: always opt for dresses and skirts, particularly pencil and A-line styles.6
  4. Vertical patterns: wear bottoms with vertical details, this gives the illusion of longer legs.8
  5. Cropped Jackets: always tuck in your top and wear cropped jackets!

Look 1: Every summer, I dig up my wardrobe and take out all the palazzo pants & skirts! They’re super light weight, comfy and perfect for the summers! This super comfy and gorgeous palazzo pants were discovered in my darling cousin’s wardrobe & obviously I had to steal ’em! Decided to pair it up with an over sized tee & heels!

Hello pretties!

Lately I’ve been super dull with my outfits, quite honestly I don’t feel like dressing up that much, maybe cause it’s winters and its freezing! All I do, is mix and match random things and just throw ’em on. This outfit is an example of that- I paired my white formal shirt with my self designed palazzo pants (you can buy these if you want, they’re in stock [IG: @msloud_official]) , white adidas shoes and my favorite red vintage shawl. I’m not a fan of statement necklaces this season, so I prefer wearing chunky bangles or earrings. Palazzos are a very ‘summer’ trend but personally I don’t believe in trends that much I wear whatever I feel like whenever I feel like.

Fishnets

Hello beautiful people!

Thanks to Instagram, I’ve noticed that these classic tights are making a huge comeback this season. I’m in love with the idea of ’90s trends making a comeback and this specific one can either make you look really really cool or really really tacky, it depends on how you style it. You can layer ’em with your ripped jeans so that it can peek out from under the holes of the jeans or you can show a few inches above your pant’s waistband. You can also style ’em with mini skirts and boots.

Trend Alert: Socks & Sandals

 

socks111

Is it just me or are style trends from Britney Spears ’90s music videos making a comeback this winter? That’s right ladies, it’s time to go sock shopping- pick out the most funkiest prints and pair ’em with your heels and sandals. High knee socks are by far the most flattering and winter friendly trends of all time. Pair them with ankle boots, heels, flats – anything and they’ll instantly make you look stylish. It’s highly important that you get the right size of socks, so that it enhances your legs and is comfortable to wear. If you want to be mistaken for a fashion blogger then just buy yourself some socks and wear ’em with heels.

Quick Tips:

Palazzos & Sweaters

Hello beautiful people!

As mentioned in the previous post, I have an obsession with bringing together eastern and western styles. For this look, I’ve paired my self designed red Palazzo pants with a cosy white sweater, a statement necklace & golden flat pumps. I do love designing my own clothes every now and then, you can check em out on Instagram (@msloud_official). This look is great for casual day plans such as brunches or mall crawls because it’s not too much layering, I personally don’t like layering that much but I tend to feel really really cold in winters- so this is a fabulous way to stay stylish & warm!

 

 

Eastern western blend

Hello lovelies!

Today’s post is going to be about styling kurtas in a funky way! I love blending eastern and western styles together, I think its a really cool concept. So for this look, I decided to layer my Khaadi kurta with a monochrome blazer, cropped pants, oxfords and added a pop of color; the handbag. Glammed it up with some chunky bangles and earrings. What I love the most about this look is that it looks chilled out and at the same time you look stylish. You don’t necessarily need to style it the exact same way, you can mix it up according to your taste.
