Fugly Flats, or Fashionably Ugly Flats (yes, that’s really what they’ve been named) are everywhere this season. Designers have reworked them in different styles for S/S 14, and one example is the ’80s pool slider.

There were bling-tastic sliders at Prada and Phillip Lim, metallics at Chloé and crossover styles at Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant, not to mention the original Adidas sliders, which are back too.

For the budget shopper, you’ll find the best high street takes on the trend at Zara, Aldo and Urban Outfitters.

Vogue India Trend Post: Think Pink

11th Sept 2013

I’ve been sooooo slow at adding some A/w looks to my wardrobe for one simple reason- I just didn’t want to admit Summer was coming to an end. But seeing as that chill seems like its here to stay its time I got a little season ready and my fave A/w trend is def Think Pink. Here’s my latest Trend Post for Vogue India on all things Pink!…

Think pink this autumn/winter. And to give the colour a seasonal update, think minimal as well.

Instead of embellishment and colour blocking with bold tones, go for shades of blush, rose and magenta in key pieces — sweaters, dresses, pants and skirts. If head-to-toe pink doesn’t appeal to you, pair the various hues of rose with classic separates in neutral tones of whites, ivories, stone, khakhis, greys, blacks and metallics.

Designer looks we love are Manish Malhotra’s flowing maxi, Victoria Beckham’s two-tone crepe dress and Nishka Lulla’s blush and gold coat. As always, high street has some great pieces too — Topshop’s simple strappy camisole and Zara’s blush pants and blazers.

Pink is especially natural in India. It reminds us of Rajasthani choli blouses and girly wedding lehengas. Remember what the original Voguette Diana Vreeland famously once said: “Pink… it’s the navy blue of India.”

Friday Fives: Zara A/w 13 Jewellery

23rd August 2013

I can’t bring myself to do any proper A/w shopping posts because I’d have to then face the fact Summer is almost over! yep denial in work over here. But jewellery is season-less non? Well that’s what I’d like to think and so here I am sharing these beauties that have just dropped in store at Zara.

Zara, crystal, flower, necklace, costume jewellery, a/w 13, trend, shoppingI just can’t resist Zara’s statement costume necklaces.

S/s 13 Trend : Monochrome trousers

21st March 2013

Last month the lovely Jahnabee Borah of Strut120 asked if I’d like to put together a Real Girl story. (click here to see how I got on) I’m pleased with how the story turned out and think the mix of personal styles is fab. There’s geek chic Devi-Asha, fashionista Meera, hippie at heart Momtaz Begum Hossain and a few more girls including me. I’ve mentioned several times that I’m not exactly a natural in front of the camera but with a LOT of direction from my sis I managed to get a good enough snap for the story as well as a few extra for this monochrome trouser blog post. Monochrome is a huge trend for S/s 13 and wearing a printed pair of trousers is a good way to work the look. You can go for a contrast side panel pair or a vertical stripe pair (which creep me out because they remind me of the film Beetlejuice) or you can go for a pair of monochrome check trousers like I have.

1 nina patel 1I love these trousers. They were a recent buy from Topshop and I’ve named them my clown pants.

2 clutch detail 1This clutch is from Zara, bright shades make me happy!

I’d describe my style as kinda lazy. I like easy simple pieces that make a statement but not too much of a statement (does that even make any sense?!) For example. I love the monochrome check trousers but would always opt to pair it with either a plain white tee or block colour jumper (say orange or cobalt blue) than say a fussy blouse or contrast print top.

watch 2My watch is from Marc Jacobs, the spike bracelet is from ASOS (I love ASOS’ costume jewelry )

3 necklace detail 1This chain and pom pom necklace is from Topshop too and for the eagle eyed my nail varnish is Vendetta by Chanel.

4 slippers detail 1These embellished slippers are from Office. I like my flats, I’m 5ft 9″ and can get away with wearing them.

Zara A/w 12 jewellery love

17th July 2012

First drop A/w 12 goodies dropped into Zara this week and its the jewellery that was giving me palpitations! I adore the nod to Chanel’s pre-fall collection in the new costume jewellery and was able to snap up the stunning Emerald necklace. It’s a perfect bold fusion piece that will rock with Indian clothes and at £30 an amazing find.

I am still in search of the pink stone piece though which looks just as yum (I have my fingers and toes crossed I’ll still be able to find one in the city)
