Emma Watson for Net-a-Porter The Edit Issue

Emma Watson poses for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit . The 23 year old star poses in five gorgeous dresses made by Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Erdem and Roland Mouret looking  absolutely amazing in these chic alternatives.
 

Since her visit to a factory in Bangladesh  she has been  questioning the current state of affairs: “I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a speciality and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?”

I live in India , Bangladesh’s neighboring country where there are factories with similar working condition as in Bangladesh. Some indian retailer’s even export from bangladesh because of their high productivity.

“It’s hard to talk about this stuff without sounding preachy.”

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.

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.

 

How do I wear Floral Pants ?

Retro-inspired and vibrant tropical patterns make floral prints a quintessential summer item.Floral print shoes, shorts, tees and handbags can add a burst of playfulness to any summer outfit, but floral print trousers are the ultimate showstopper.

Floral pants are romantic and feminine and so many celebrities are rocking this summer item. You inspiration is right here.

  • The first thing to consider while buying a pair is your body type. If you’re petite you’ll want to go with a smaller pattern which will not over-whelm your smaller frame.If you’re tall you can get away with a bolder, large-scale design. And definitely  pick a color combo that can easily blend into your current wardrobe and you are comfortable with as these floral pants quite a statement maker.
  •  Pair floral print with a matching solid colour of the same tone as the floral pant. And black almost always works.
