Strappy love

AS THE MERCURY rises, it is time to go minimal with your wardrobe. Peel off those layers and get rid of bulky accessories to make way for delicate pieces to match your summer mood. Strappy, minimal sandals are the palette cleanser of accessories and if you are all for a sleek, streamlined look, they are exactly what you need.

Young stars Emma Watson and Alia Bhatt show how to keep it simple with dainty sandals that complement their short skirts perfectly. Sometimes you don’t need embellishment to dress up your outfit; a pair of heels with thin straps adds a lot of elegance to a flirty summer dress. And your skinny jeans or cigarette pants get a sophisticated look with strappy heels.

The simpler your sandals are, the more they let you show off those neon nails or that funky toe ring. And what’s summer without brightly painted toes? Get your feet out of those cramped shoes and give them the love they deserve with simple strappies.

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.

 

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.
