For the lazy girls out there the jumpsuit is go to outfit. One outfit solution to all your problems : Monday morning blues, waking up late, no planned outfit, in the fashion rut, feeling supper lazy.All you need is the jumpsuit to jump start your day and banish the problems. 

Invented by Florentine Thayat in 1919, the first jumpsuit was a considered a liberating garment during the futuristic period. Thayat used cotton fabric or African canvas to cutout the shape of the garment and added few buttons and a belt. Thus the first jumpsuit was a creative do-it- yourself project by Thayat.

Every girl need to have this item in their closet. The jumpsuit is for every season and occasion. Loved by the fashionistas and the lazy gals out there including me. Styling a jumpsuit is simple and easy.Wear them solo or pair them up with simple black blazer or jacket.

The black jumpsuit is a closet essential. They are available is several patterns and cut. Monochrome, colour blocked, printed jumpsuits with cropped or flared hem and wide range of necklines. 

All you need to do it get a jumpsuit that fits you perfectly. Know  Why you need to get your clothes tailored.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

Summer calls for jumpsuits and a pair of sunglasses to beat the heat in style.Planing  minimalist looks has never been easier.

 

They are classy and great for semi-formal looks. Add belt to accentuate your waist and plums to round up the look.

Accessories with a hat for the daytime look paired with sandal. The free flowing breezy fabric is perfect for summer and daytime activities.

They double up as pantsuits too. All you need is a blazer to get polished put-together look.

 

They are red-carpet approved. Planing a  party wear is not so hard anymore.

Day to night transition outfit has never been easier with some jumpsuit around.

The monochrome jumpsuits are the safes bet if you are not sure about this wonderful trend. Pulling off an head to toe  white look has never been easier. French style lovers this is something you can’t do without.

Black is forever

My love for the color black is unsurpassed by any other colour. It is my go to colour. When in doubt go Black. Back to Black .People around me are forever asking me to wear other colors , anything other than black.

The importance of the colour black when it comes to fashion and my wardrobe is immense. 

 

You can’t go wrong with The Little Black Dress has been a wardrobe staple and rightfully so. They are versatile and flattering on almost everyone. Easy to accessories with statement neck pieces and colorful scarves.The uniform project involved wearing a LBD for 365 day consecutively but creatively while not repeating the same outfit. Black is one of the best colour for the monochrome look followed closely by white and blue.

Black and white  is another classic combination that is always trendy. The combination to these two neutral colour is striking and suitable for every occasion starting from formal to casual.  

 

Apart from that black looks good with a wide range of colors . From pastels to fluorescent and several bright tones can be easily balanced with the colour black. Needless to say   pencil skirt, blazer, jeans, shirt, t-shirt, tank and a pair of semi-formal pants all in the colour black is my wardrobe staple. 

Well , when it comes to accessories the belt, the bag and the shoe, black defiantly dominates the field. All these are must for formal wardrobe.

 

Leather jackets and blazers looks sharp and classy all the time and more so in the colour black. Edgy looks are best when done in black so does studs and chains. 

Black colour gives the best slimming effect too. 

For some people black is boring but for me black brings out the best in every colour and outfit. What is your go to colour?

Days Without Jeans ………. part 2

The LWD is in fashion and booties too …..

The simple black and white horizontal stripes look daring when paired with orange stockings . Stockings are great option if you don’t want to show too much skin .

The printed dress is truly great ….

Cover up with polka dot stockings for a retro vibe ..

This is easy to wear and super comfortable ……

The unique hemline does it all and don’t forget the bag .

Black stocking paired with this unique print dress is chic. The cut ans style of the dress is unique and interesting.

Go for a tie and dye dress and pair it with statement necklace to complete the look.Chunky bangles and bags to complement it if you will.

A simple dress like this has go it’s own charm. The color is unique and the style is unusual. Upper half is sweater and the lower part a full skirt with defined waist. A simple and comfortable look.

If you not comfortable with shorter hemline go a bit longer.This length is flattering on almost every one and provides enough coverage for cold weather. The dress is successfully paired with black long coat and ankle boots and a head piece.

Play with different types of hemline not only in length but also in form.The handkerchief hem is style.

The unique hemline and the red and black patches in the otherwise simple polka dot dress  is trendy . The red belts adds to its charm.

Simple tie and die dress looks great and comfortable for long summer days. Paired with gladiator sandals  and long neck lace.

If you are in love with sheer trend and not afraid to take risk this is the dress for you.

The charcoal gray tapered dress pants paired with classic white button down and black jacket is office appropriate and on trend.

The track pants inspired pants with side stripe gives a relaxed vibe.A simple black t shirt and a white belt make it a office worthy out-fit.

you can also go for printed pants  like the criss-cross pink and blue stripes on black background .Pair them with solid colored top or you can even play with prints.

I simple love this outfit the bold black and white vertical striped trouser and the mint green shrug paired with a simple black top look simple and fuss free.

The cut of the coat is cool and the layering does not look bulky at all. Layering is a art that girls in cold weather must graduate in.

Hats of to the one’s who can wear this pair of pant and be comfortable in it all day round . Personally I do not recommend sun extreme fashion that is uncomfortable. But this outfit is a hub of texture. Texture play a very important role in monochrome outfit.

Mustard yellow have been ruling the run for few seasons and the colour is sober and bold at the same time.Office appropriate and with a white top you can never go wrong.

The monochrome outfit is smart and not slouchy.The break in the colour comes where the belt and the funky shoes are added . The bold red lips add a touch of freshness.

Liquid leggings someone.. I love the way she has matched the bag and shoes while keeping rest of the outfit in neutral tone.

Another great example of layering without bulking up.

Double dose of leather is so cool and trendy way to stay warm. Leather is great alternative for jeans and gives edgy vibe as well

The dressy hot pant is not every ones cup of tea but the polka dot stockings and white button down make is work appropriate. This a great piece for your wardrobe as the shorts can double as evening wear when paired with dressy tops.

The office outfit is very simple but lovely. The moccasins and scarf are  good add on. The off white colour pant suit is simply chic.

The floral pant suit is comfortable options …..for a lazy day .We all go through a lazy day now and then so this it is good to have some ready made laid back outfit in the closet.

Days Without Jeans ………. part 1

I love denim and can’t think of going without them for even a week …  but these outfit are really inspiring me to take up the challenge of going 7 days without denim.

Leading the way is Alexa Chung with a floral printed skirt ….

Monochrome skirts are great options if you not sure about prints …… bold Chery red , neutral gray  , brown ……. and this reminds me of me school uniform …

You can even use belts to accentuate your waist ………….

Though the skirt is feminine the  bold chain accessories complement’s it the perfect way ……… I just love it ..

It’s definitely hard to carry of sequin during the day … but where there is a will there’s always a way …..it works great with understated or faded pieces.

The Classic white Shirt and a bold large print full skirt  …….

You can even opt for full skirt if you not comfortable with showing too much skin and don’t forget about the tights. Metallics works great with neutral and white T-shirt will never fail you.
