INDIAN WEDDINGS are known to be over-the-top with resplendent looks, jewellery and unavoidable need for multiple outfits. Summer weddings are all but a rage and putting together looks centres around looking effortless yet glamorous.


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! Rohit Bal on the other hand worked with deeper shades like maroons and midnight blue.

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.


Beauty bulletin: Summer 2014


creative1Great style lies not only in the right clothes but also in the right makeup. And as far as make up is concerned, it ain’t summer without bright lips, pastel nails and nude face. But there’s certainly more to summer make up than just these. Style Mynt spoke to Rod Anker of Monsoon (one of the most popular salon chains across the country) and got to know his favourite colours, beauty suggestions and a lot more.

What are the lip colours trending this season?

Nude, fuchsia coral and burnt rich colors like magenta, burgundy, razberry and deep purple.

How cool are dark lip colours for summer?

Dark can fit in the summer with a shade that is more red than purple. Dab a bit of gloss or a light colour in the middle of your lips after applying a dark lip colour. You can also try gradient lips.

What is the right way to apply foundation in summers without making it look cakey?

- Apply a face primer. It smoothens out the surface, filling in pores and makes your skin smoother for the foundation.
- Use an alcohol or silicone based foundation.
- The finishing can be ended with MAC’s Fix Plus spray.

What kind of eye make up should one go for this summer?

Soft nudes with glowing undertones look the best in summer for day time. Winged eye liners are a new summer favourites too. For night shimmer , bright coral, green, purple tones are a new smokey eye favourite all around.

Any make up essentials for this season?

Eye liner: Whether one wears a little or a lot, eyeliner is a great way to open your eyes and make then look brighter.
The perfect nude lipstick: Sometimes we just want a neutral colour for a no fuss, low maintenance look.Mascara and eye curler: Every girl knows what a difference a couple of swipes can make.

What nail colours are trending this season?

Any make up tip?

Make sure to cleanse your face twice a day without fail. Even if you have been indoors all day long, a clean face is the secret to a healthy skin.



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!
