LOVE KNOWS NO boundaries and least of all boundaries between two states. Thus, Krish Malhotra (Arjun Kapoor) and Ananya Swaminathan (Alia Bhatt) have to fight many deep-seeded social and cultural perceptions dragged on by generations to hope for a life together. The film, 2 States, adopted from Chetan Bhagat’s novel by the same name, will sure be worth a watch as we trace the journey of this couple through many ups and downs in their relationship.
While you can expect to come across many shades of emotions in the film, do watch out for as many colours in the styling done on the characters.
Alia Bhatt as Ananya
Given the modern-day urban setting of the film, the leading lady is dressed in Indo-western clothing, opting majorly for ghagroos and kurtas teamed with silver jewellery. Ananya’s style reflects the character’s liberal thoughts but conservative roots. Krish is styled in denims and cargos teamed with jackets in solid colours. Specs add a nerdy touch.
Arjun Kapoor as Krish Malhotra
The styling on both the characters reflects the fashion sense of a typical Indian college student. Sure the youth will associate with the colourful kurtas, silver jewellery, jackets, cargos, denims and backpacks.

WATERY COLOURS MERGING into each other for a soft and dreamy effect – ombre is what we are crushing on this summer. The lovely Aditi Rao Hydari wears it to perfection with pink and purple palazzo pants by Nachiket Barve, who is known for using ombre extensively.
The watercolour like effect of ombre shading reminds us of crushed ice candies and that’s what makes it perfect to chill out in the scorching summer heat.
Ombre is not limited to women’s fashion; men can wear it too. Your basic t-shirt gets a new look when it has an ombre shading, and is sure to make you stand out as you step out for some weekend fun.

IT IS IPL time again, and we know what that means – a month and half of cricket fever taking over every topic of discussion, an extra tab on your internet browser for live updates and cable bills being paid on time.
Some of us will go to the stadium to feel the excitement, while others will stay home to cheer for their favourite teams. Whichever way you choose to watch the matches, it is always more fun when you dress for the occasion.
Even the hottest Bollywood celebs wear their team colours, so get inspired and get your own IPL gear in place. While you can always wear your team jersey, you can also pick up a sporty polo tee in the colour of the team you are rooting for. Your trusted, much-worn jeans, a pair of comfy sneakers and a cool watch are all you need to go with it.
Girls, you can balance the boyish shape of the polo tee with a cute pair of shorts in a contrasting colour. A pair of sunglasses will protect your eyes from the glare of the sun and the arch lights while adding a touch of style to your casual outfit.
So grab the popcorn and yell out loud, for we’ve caught the IPL fever!

WITH THE DOUBLE denim trend still going strong, how can chambray be left behind? For those of you not so well versed with fashion terminologies, chambray is a cotton fabric with half its yarns white and half coloured, usually blue, that gives it a double shaded effect. While this lightweight fabric is usually a staple for men’s shirts, it also lends itself well to women’s tops and dresses.
This simple fabric has been spotted on the most glamorous celebs, proving itself as a must-have material for summer. Blue chambray shirts are a classic, as seen on Jake Gyllenhaal, Justin Timberlake and Imran Khan, the latter who wore it under a casual blazer. Katie Holmes and Anne Hathaway wore cool summer dresses in chambray, while Deepika Padukone glammed it up in a cut out style shirt paired with a pencil skirt.
Sweet summer chambray was also presented by Louis Vuitton, Elizabeth and James, Paul Smith and J.Crew in their summer and resort collections.
There are many ways to wear chambray. While tops and shirts are the most obvious ones, try out a shirt dress and pair it with neutral coloured accessories. Men can try chambray kurtas for a change and pair them with linen trousers and leather sandals for that elegant, casual look.
But to use chambray to its full potential, replace your thick denims with relaxed fit trousers and shorts. We guarantee it will be your saviour during the heat wave. Pair your chambray bottoms with a simple white shirt for the classic look or a bright coloured tee when you are in a fun mood.
To stay cool under the scorching sun, comfy chambray is what you need this summer.
