The unassuming baseball cap has got a nod of approval from across design houses this season. Tibi, Lacoste, DKNY and Rodarte have given a glamorous spin to its drab old sporty version, taking it forward from its luxe avatar.

Rihanna’s fondness towards the trend shows that they are more than just sun-protecting accessory. Likewise celebrities like Katrina Kaif, Miley Cyru, popularblogger Sussie Bubble have been sporting baseball caps. Amongst the men who can’t have enough of the trend are Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Johnny Depp.

Baseball caps can certainly give a va-va-voom spin to your casual as well as formal look! And the good news is that they are easy to style too.

Try teaming a printed flowy dress with a matching monotone beanie.

The pop-of-colour trend will take a whole new dimension when a bright cap gets teamed with muted hues.

Quick fix your bad hair days with a fun cap.

 

Bollywood Fridays – 2 States

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.

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.

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.

Oh Ombre!

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.

IPL catches fashion fever

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.

creative-2_celebsSome 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!
