5 Accessories Every College Girl Must Own!

Summer vacations are coming to an end and it’s “Back to College” season now. College is an exciting phase where trying new trends and making new friends are foremost for everyone. Since college is the time you experiment with different styles, and develop your style, it’s important to have a list of things you must own before you head for class. Here are five accessories every college girl must own.

Tote Bag: The tote bag is the one that will carry everything that a college girl needs. Books, stationary, make up, phone, charger, medicines et all get dumped into the tote. So it must be big enough and not too over sized to stay on trend. Prints are trendy this summer and what better way to flaunt this trend than by owning a tote that has prints on it. Prints can range from florals, checks to downright quirky. Quirky prints tend to get noticed more. So if you want to catch someone’s eye, be bold and go for a quirky printed tote bag.

Scarves: The scarf is a clever piece of fabric that only a few know how to wear. A scarf, if worn the right way can accentuate your look tremendously. A printed silk scarf is a perfect accessory with a white T-shirt and a pair of jeans. It can also be worn with a solid coloured salwar kameez. A hand block printed cotton scarf is also a classy option to own. You’ll find that it’s the easiest way to look instantaneously stylish. 

Dainty Earrings: It is best to always own a few pairs of simple and elegant earrings. Buy them in neutral colors so that you can wear them with all kinds of clothes. Gold and silver colored earrings with simple detailing are the best to wear daily to college. Pink gold is another colour that is fashionable this season. If you have a round face, wear studs and small earrings. If you have an oval face and a slender neck you can pretty much wear any earring. But the rule of thumb is to stick to something not too elaborate.

Statement Necklace: A statement necklace is a must-have piece of jewellery in every girl’s wardrobe. You have to pick the right necklace in order to complete your look. Tassels are trending big this season. Another trend seen on runways is the layer necklace. You can work this look in different ways. One way is to wear a long beaded necklace wrapped around to create two or three layers. Another more contemporary look is to flaunt a multi chain necklace in gold or silver. A fashion rule that will do you good to remember is when you wear a statement necklace keep the earrings minimal. Pair a statement necklace with ethnic wear or western wear as per your taste.

Body Chains: College days are a lot about partying just as much as studying! The trendiest accessory to wear at a party is a body chain. Wear it with a little black dress be rest assured that you’ll be the most stylish girl at the party. If you’re aiming for a rocker chic look, wear the body chain with ripped jeans and a black top. Make sure to wear the body chain with a figure hugging top or dress. If not, you will end up looking shabby.

Remember to experiment with fashion and stay stylish!

Top Trends of 2015

Tassels, Statement earrings, Spikes and Sequins are the big trends seen on the runways for Spring Summer 2015. Here are some ways that you can adapt these trends and stay stylish.

Tassels – You could work this trend any which way you desire. A heavily embroidered dupatta with tassel embellishments at the corners paired with a simple shalwar kameez, is perfect for a pooja at home. A more contemporary way to rock this trend is, to wear a tasseled jacket or a fringe bag with a pair of jeans and a shirt. Or you could choose to play it safe and simply experiment with the trend and wear a gold coloured tasseled cuff with your sari.Statement earrings look best when worn with a simple outfit. For maximum effect, wear a knee length sundress with a pair of earrings that almost scrape your shoulders. It’s a sure shot way of getting people to notice you. Long earrings look best on people with a slender neck. The best way not to overdo this look, is to skip the necklace while choosing to sport statement earrings. Look stunning while wearing a heavy georgette sari with chandelier earrings at a wedding cocktail party. Being the odd one out and not wearing a dress to the party is sometimes a good thing. For me, the sari is the most fascinating and versatile piece of clothing. It is made for our body types. Believe me when I say that Indian women look sensational in a sari.My favourite trend of the new year is Spikes. It shouts rebel! Each one of us has a rebellious side and what better way to express it rather than through fashion? Whether its a clutch, a necklace or ballet flats be runway ready in spikes. The British designer brand Alexander McQueen is the cult brand for accessories with spikes. You just have to own a McQueen clutch! Get in touch with your rebel side by sporting a spike ear cuff by our very own  Manish Arora for Amprapali. Manish Arora is well known for his edgy designs. Today, you have the freedom to mix and match. So go ahead and be different – Wear your spikes with something as traditional as a sari. As Indians, let’s admit that we adore bling! Fortunately for us, sequins is still a big trend for the new year. Whether you want to go all out or be subtle, there is something for everyone who wants to wear this trend. I prefer to stick to sequinned accessories and keep my outfit plain. But the choice is yours. Wear a sequinned belt to dress up the otherwise plain little black dress. The same belt can be worn to complete a pair of jeans and a white shirt. If you’re aiming for a more formal look and still want to wear sequins, pair a sequinned bag or a clutch with your sari. Fashion is about being clever and choosing accessories that can be repeated with different clothes for different occasions.

5 Jewellery Pieces Every Girl Must Get Her Hands On

The key to going from drab to fab is picking the right accessories. Here are the hottest pieces this summer. 

1. Statement Necklace – Every girl must own a couple of statement neckpieces. An important rule to follow is to keep the earrings simple while wearing a statement necklace. So wear a pair of minimal studs in the same colour as the necklace that you’re wearing. Bold necklaces are very fashionable at the moment. Make a statement in the boardroom with a statement necklace paired with a white cotton shirt and trousers. A funky alternative is to wear a statement necklace with a sari for work. It will make a serious statement for sure. You could also explore your punk side by wearing a necklace with spikes and stones. It’s edgy and very chic especially when worn with a linen dress for summer. 

2. Layered Pendants – Layering pendants is a very bohemian trend. This trend has been spotted at all fashion weeks across the globe. Wear turquoise and citrine coloured pendants with a white cotton midi dress to be summer ready. Another way to be a gypsy goddess is to wear a few pendant necklaces with a pair of jeans and a casual shirt.

3. Tassel Earrings – Tassels are trending on all runways the world over. An easy and quick way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe is to own a pair of tassel earrings. There are a few ways that you can flaunt tassel earrings. You can pair them with a pair of denim shorts and a funky tie and dye T-shirt to chill out at a pool party this summer. Another way to wear the tassel trend is to wear the earrings with a floral printed maxi dress for a summer party. Tassels for me mean freedom and summer is the perfect season to have fun with them.

4. Bold Blue Rings – Blue is the trendiest colour of the season. So why not buy a few bold rings in shades of blue? Turquoise, aqua and indigo are all fashionable colours right now. Wear a bold ring with a chikankari kurta and leggings for a day out with your family. Or wear these rings with a shift dress in navy or white for a movie date with your special someone.

5. Hand Harness – Besides rings, hand harnesses or haathphools are funky and fun. You’ll be insta-cool if spotted wearing a hand harness. There are a variety of haathphools that you can wear. A simple chain link hand harness worn with ripped jeans is a huge trend this season. An ethnic hand harness with a full-length skirt and a crop top will make you stand out in a crowd. Go out there and have fun experimenting with hand harnesses! 

Remember to have fun while staying stylish!

Whats hot for the party season?
Its that time of the year when everyday there is a party to go to. Each one of us is in a celebratory mood, eager to meet our friends and family who have come home for the holidays from near and far.The hottest trends at the moment are fringes and shimmer. Shimmer is ubiquitous for dinner parties. Its glamorous and brings out the diva in you. A long gold lame maxi dress is sure to make you feel like a showstopper in a fashion show. Tall women look best in a maxi. If you’re the petite type of woman, the best type of dress to wear is a short one that reaches until just above your knees. Accessorize it with a gold colored belt at your waist and voila, you have upped your style quotient. To complete the look, wear a pair of glittering gold stilletos. It is the party season after all, so be bold and own your style.On the contrary, if you’re the kind of woman who likes to play it safe but would also like to be fashionable, carry a glittering metallic evening bag in gold or silver. For a more traditional occasion, one can always wear a chiffon sari and pair it with a sequinned blouse. The blouse lends instant character to the otherwise plain sari and will dress up the whole outfit.
Now lets talk about the other trend on the runway – the fringe. There is something about the fringe look that shouts casual luxury! The easiest way to own the fringe look is to flaunt it with accessories. A sling bag with fringe detail is the “in” thing and the easiest way to stay trendy. The brands that I really like are Zara and Rebecca Minkoff.
Another way to stay trendy, is to wear a pair of fringe gold colored earrings with your little black dress, popularly known as the LBD. Depending on the occassion, you could wear the earrings even with a lovely kancheepurarm sari. A mix of the traditional and contemporary will most definitely make people stop, take notice and compliment you. If you’d like to be a tad bit bolder, experiment with fringe detailed shoes. The exquisitely detailed and dramatic fringe detailing on your pair of stilettos is sure to draw all eyes to your feet. Schutz and Chloe are well known luxury brands for their fringed stilettos.Its okay once in a while to splurge on shoes. A word of caution, these stilettos are definitely not for the faint hearted.
My favourite way to flaunt the fringe look, is to wear a leather jacket with fringe trimmings over my favorite pair of blue denims and boots. It keeps me comfortable and stylish at the same time. A popular belief is that in order to keep up with the latest fashion trends one has to sacrifice comfort. I disagree! Its picking what works for you and your body type that makes you truly stylish.
