Especially espadrilles

creative1 (2)While sleek and high stilettos seem to be the mother of all footwear, when the sultry summer calls, there nothing as comfortable and cool as espadrilles. The casual shoes that came in the fashion scene decades ago are back in the limelight. And this time espadrilles have got a glamorous spin in sequins and quirky prints.

Putting their best foot forward in espadrilles are our celebrities. Stars like Bella Thorne, Karolina Kurkova, Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba have been spotted wearing them.

There a pair of espadrilles for every personality. The right styling can push it from being a day-wear essential to a party fave. Here’s how.

Wear printed espadrilles with monotone outfits to let the print do all the talking. You can even pick brighter shades to make the look quirky.

Monotone espadrilles are a must-have in everybody’s closet. They lend a nautical feel when paired with stripes and tropical prints.

Furthermore, crew neck tees, swing dresses and beach-inspired prints go well with espadrilles.


Style trotting – Summer ponies

WHETHER IT IS a quick fix with a scrunchie that you carry around on your wrist, or a sleek and sharp style, ponytails are what we are loving, now that summer is here. If you tend to always wear your hair down, now is the time for a bouncy update.

creative1new Nargis Fakri was recently spotted wearing her hair in a pony of a medium height and soft waves, with a slightly tousled pouf over the crown. This is a great look for a semi-formal event, like an office brunch or a date, as it is the right combination of dressy and effortless. Or if you have to spend most of your time outdoors in the sticky summer heat, Jennifer Lopez’s tight high pony will give you a youthful look, while keeping hair off your face.

The increasing heat and humidity are good reasons to experiment with cool updos and it couldn’t get simpler than a basic pony. Just dress it up with minimal, colourful or bejewelled bands depending on your mood, and you are good to go.


Celeb Style: Jennifer’s Easter Sunday stroll


EASTER SUNDAY WAS a rather quiet day for one of Hollywood’s youngest and most dynamic stars Jennifer Lawrence, who chose the company of close friends and took a stroll down New York’s upscale Soho neighbourhood. The Oscar winner chose not to dress loud to mark the festivities, but kept it rather simple in a slouchy sand-coloured jacket, blue jeans and white top. She used simple accessories that included a silver chain, maroon loafers and a brown sling bag.



Arm Candy: Printed clutches

WHILE BACKPACKS AND totes are our day buddies, the twilight demands a much chicer and sleeker mate, the clutches. And, clutches with fancy prints do score a ten-on-ten score on our fashion scale. High on oomph and glamour, the printed clutches are a spring favourite on the runways.

Floral, animal and digital prints are being used to offer varied dimensions to the clutches. While florals in pastel shades speak of a shy and feminine identity, the animal prints reveal boldness. It is indeed time to let your clutch do the talking.

Designers are experimenting with a lot of prints on clutches. Farah Sanjana used the spring favourite pelican wing prints, Pankaj and Nidhi showcased prints inspired by cards and Nikasha used pretty florals on the latest clutch collection.


In the celeb circles, Bipasha and Pippa Middleton were both seen using an animal print clutch to jazz up their looks.
