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!


Easy ethnic

WITH THE HARVEST season upon us, it is but natural to try and incorporate indigenous elements into our daily dressing. A little tinkle of a jhumki or the glint of stacked colourful bangles, rows of beads kissing your neck or a belt to define the flowy silhouette of a saree – things put beautifully and easily together to make you shine when the sun shines.

creative-1 creative-2

Last year the cleavage-baring inverse-buttoned shirt trend got an eyebrow-raising response during Spring/Summer fashion weeks across the globe. But we can tell you the secret to pulling off this oh-so-cool trend with élan. Adding a crop top underneath your open shirt can instantly make the trend wearable. You can add high-waisted pants if you want a peek-a-boo effect in your look. We have curated a look that will help you nail the trend, the right way.

Class apart : Emma Watson

EMMA WATSON SURE knows magic. At least her fashion evolution suggests so.

Over the years, she has conjured many style spells to stun the world with her very chic and classy sartorial choices. From her initial baby steps into fashion at the age of 11 with quirky gowns, fur boas, frilly dresses, and her penchant for boots, she has come a long way and proved herself every bit a style icon with her matured outfit choices in recent times.

Emma was selected the face of Burberry at a very young age and she has always adhered to extremely high standards in style in her growing up years, picking her outfits majorly from Chanel and Alexander McQueen. Simplicity in style is always her thing. She lets her costumes speak with very little interference from makeup and jewellery. We attempt to decode some of her looks on the occasion of her 24th birthday.

Look 1

Emma looked stunning in this white mini dress with embellished neckline and shoulders at MTV Movie Awards some years back. She teamed her dress with silver pumps and very minimal jewellery. Her eyes, however, had a dash of heavy makeup. Emma’s look was simple yet elegant and extremely matured.

You can copy the look with a simple white dress with an embellished neckline and team it with silver heels and minimal jewellery. Look 2 Fresh as a daisy, Emma stunned Cannes with her grace last year. Simplicity in clothes, shoes, makeup and hair do was her mantra. This basic maroon dress teamed with simple black heels and no jewellery helped her cut a pretty picture. The appeal of the look was in its simplicity. Try out our picks to experiment with this look.  

Look 3

Emma’s look at the UK premiere of her film, My Week With Marilyn reflected a grown-up sartorial choice. Her white peplum top and black pencil skirt were styled to perfection with a sling belt, animal print clutch and black heels.


Look 4

Emma takes her street style seriously. Again, simplicity forms the basis of choices for clothes. A 10 on 10 for our girl for wearing black denim paired with a white formal shirt and slouchy jacket for a day out on the streets. No makeup and no jewellery were again a feature in her look. Her love for boots was, however, reflected in this look. Try out our picks to recreate this look.
