10 Must Have Wardrobe Essentials Feat. Shein.com

I understand that there is just too much fashion around us and you eventually tend to get confused.  As a fashion blogger, it is my duty to surf through the trends and internet to bring forth the must have wardrobe essentials. I doubt most you would say no to these needing basic requirements for your wardrobe. These essentials will be the foundation of your wardrobe. I promise you, once you curate this list, getting up in the morning and getting dressed will just be easier. It’s wiser to spend your money on essentials first rather than buying everything that can’t be tailored to match.

The best part about these essentials is that they are immune to seasonal changes and can be worn solo or layered accordingly. I believe in investing in signature pieces that go with everything. It’s all about being comfortable and remaining stylish. Here are ten wardrobe essentials you need for all occasions. These are the basic building blocks of a closet.  They will carry you through work days, to family dinner, casual day out with friends etc.

  1. Kimono

A Kimono is chic and effortless. It adds a happy tag to your dull outfit and also adds a pop of colour to all your blacks and whites. You can style a Kimono with your shorts, skirt, denim, dress etc. There are countless ways of layering a Kimono.

2. Asymmetric Jacket

A nude jacket or a shrug is a saviour. It perfectly fits your need no matter what occasion or season you are in. I love shrugs and jackets because they can styled the way you want.

5. Bodycon dress

Look for a classic knee length black dress. A black dress works as a casual outfit and also as a versatile piece of clothing. Add a kimono for a pop of colour on a casual day or wear a statement necklace and you are good to go on a date.

6. Pencil SkirtPencil Skirt

Pencil skirts work two ways – Casual & Business. I personally love pencil skirt and have them in all colours too. It not only accentuates your curves but also is a classy outfit. This style looks good with anything whether it be paired with a sweat shirt or a nice top.

9. Ripped Denim

Ripped denim or normal denim is perfect for all seasons. You can multiple layer on top or wear it with a casual tee. Wear them with boots and a leather jacket in the day or heels and a silk top for a night out. These go-to pants can do no wrong.

10. Wide Leg Pants or Palazzos

A casual pyjama or a wide leg pant can work for on a weekday as well as on a lazy day. palazzos remind me of my beach days though. Works best for as an effortlessly casual outfit.

Skin First Feat. Aroma Essentials

Exceptional and healthy skin only begins with good skin care. With the heat wave hitting the southern region of India, I don’t dare to walk out from the house without my summer essentials. I just walked out to realise the temperature and frankly speaking I got roasted. Always thought Bangalore would keep us cool and cosy, looks like Bangalore changed it’s mind.

Last month, I had received some beauty care products from Aroma Essentials. They are all homemade and made out of natural ingredients like carrots, rose, lemongrass etc.  Aroma Essentials products are a combination of Aromatherapy and Botanical extracts.  Don’t worry about the side effects because there aren’t any, since Aroma Essential’s products are composed of natural elements for skin and hair. They not only nourish your skin, but rejuvenates it. Aroma Essentials offer a wide range of skin care to hair care, Eye Care, Lip Care, Scrubs, Face Masks, Tan Removal, Make-up remover, Hydrating mist, Massage candles and many more.

I received two body butters, sun block and a bottle of bath salt.

It’s Tyffyn Time Again Feat. Vaya Tyffyn

Remember the time when I wrote a post on Vaya Tyffyn box. I had reviewed the 1000ml Vaya Tyffyn, a three container version on my post last year but this time it’s about the 600ml Vaya tyffyn. The 1000ml Vaya tyffyn is not handy and portable to carry compared to the 600ml tyffyn . Also if you eat less or want to carry less, it just feels weird to have an empty box in your lunch box. Therefore, Vaya recently launched a smaller version of the same 1000ml tyffyn for school, college and work.

Home cooked food is always the best. I am just a lazy person who just can’t wake up early in the morning to cook and pack my lunch box for work. But the Vaya tyffyn is inspirational and motivates you to carry your lunch box for a change. Not only is it smart but also functional. I wish I was in school to show off my premium lunch box. You know what I mean!!

Nothing much has changed except for the size. The 600ml tyffyn is a two case, vacuüm insulated lunch box. The tyffyn box keeps the food warm for atleast 4-5 hours. The 600ml tyffyn has thinner containers compared to the 1000ml tyffyn box. Just like the earlier one, the 600ml tyffyn box has a stainless body and has leak-proof double shot lids with compartments for easy separation. Isn’t that wonderful !! When I was in school, aloo paranthas and pickle would always create a mess in my lunch box. The entire parantha would taste less like aloo parantha but pickle aloo parantha. We did not have an option then and I always detested to carry to separate boxes in my bag, which would just increase the burden. Ah! good old days !! Coming back to the 600ml Vaya tyffyn, it comes with a bag that conveniently unfolds into a table mat. They come in Maple, Graphite and Wool.

The bagmat is a launch offer so hurry up and buy the 600ml tyffyn box now to receive the bagmat without any extra charges. Otherwise the bagmat costs Rs.690, which you could buy separately according to the variation you choose for your tyffyn.

I decided to carry Vaya 600ml tyffyn for my short trip to Hyderabad and filled it with some sandwiches and puffs for the journey. Thank god for the partition I could pour in some ketchup for the sandwiches with out any chaos. The partition does not let the other compartment food to leak out from one corner to another. The size of the tyffyn box is not only adorable but convenient. The 600ml Vaya Tyffyn is a perfect combination of transformation and trend. For all of you who carry lunch box to school, work, college or travel, hurry up and get your hands on Vaya Tyffyn now.

Let me know about your thoughts on the Vaya Tyffyn.

The Best of Wear.Style Bangalore Fashion Week 16th Edition

This was my first ever Bangalore Fashion Week. I was overjoyed and grateful to receive the invitation. This being my first time, I was clueless as to what happens at a fashion show. I couldn’t attend the first day but made sure would sit back and watch all they show for the next three days. It’s always fun to know what’s new and trendy in the fashion industry. With so much creativity around you it’s never a bad idea to make time for a fashion week. The 16th edition Bangalore fashion week was filled with handloom, denim, kalamkari, silk and loads of embroidery work.

I was actually looking forward to some amazing innovative and bohemian fashion but unfortunately it was mostly traditional. There were few designers like Parinita, Amita Gupta and Pria Kataria Puri who showcased an indo-western themed collection rather than the typical traditional wear. I am pretty excited to bring to you my personal favourites from The Bangalore Fashion Week.

Parinita’s collection was inspired by Yakshas – a theatre dance form called Yakshagana. Matched to the creative expression of extravagance, drama, and rhythmic movement associated with the dance form. The collection was filled with bold colours, checks, Kolhapuris (which is also a part of Pariha) and layers.

Inspired by the era of silks, Ashok Mannay showcased his creativity with radiating craft and colours. The silk was typical colours of day, gold, beige, ivory with intricate embroidery work. The glamours silhouettes not only were elegant but dreamy. He celebrates the Indian sari with an element of mystery and enigma.

Pria Kataria Puri is known as the Kaftan and resort-wear queen. The beautifully designed Kaftans are for all sizes. The collection showcased was bold, fun and edgy which are perfect for summer 0r beach day. The collection has a Kashmiri influence, crafted in silk and satin. It incorporates new styles of kaftan silhouettes like a maxi kaftan, jumpsuits, palazzos, dresses, tops, blouses and rompers in pure Italian silk. Off shoulder and cold shoulder cuts, bohemian sleeves, structured hemlines lend a feminine grace to the ensembles. Bold bikinis and racy cut-out swimsuits with complementing cover-ups are perfect for a beach date.
