Floral fix on flower clips

USING FLOWERS TO decorate hair is an ancient fashion obsession. The style has, however, continued to trickle its way through time and reinvented itself in the form of flower clips.

The appeal of this trend lies in the multiple dimensions that it can offer. It can be used to accentuate Western attire as well as ethnic clothes. Whether you embrace your girly self in flower clips teamed with dresses or pin them on a bun and paint a picture of elegance in a saree, flower clips help you look a class apart.

Vidya was seen posing pretty in a pink flower clip at a film promotion event recently. Do note, her lip colour agreed with her hair accessory while the rest of her look reflected a rather contrasting monochromatic play of stripes.

Recent fashion weeks witnessed bridal collections for the warm months. Falguni and Shane Peacock showcased a canvas of chiffon, georgette and tulle embellished with embroidery. The colour palette had everything from pistachio to ivory, black, gold and coral. Tarun Tahiliani created magic with the use of light fabrics, shimmer and soft shades like champagne, cream and white, although there were occasional pops of red!

We recently spoke about our love for crop tops and before we could go any further, we spotted the gorgeous Alia Bhatt nailing the crop top trend in just the right way.

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.
