Orange-y.

Hey You! I'm quite excited. I was one  of the three Style Icons declared on Stylepile for this last month. Yay!! :) Do visit Stylepile, its a good dose of fashion!


Okay I don’t know if you guys have noticed yet, but black is my go to colour. It’s not like I don’t like other colours, but I somehow do end up incorporating black as one of the things in my outfit! Habit? Well I am going to try and get rid of it. Black is definitely not my favourite colour, it’s a habit colour. Do you guys have a ‘habit’ colour too?


Anyway so I got this jacket recently, and I don’t mean to brag but very seldom do i tend to repeat clothes, but I’ve owned this jacket for about 2 weeks now and I’ve worn it thrice, already! I love everything about it, the colour, the gold buttons, the shoulder padding, nothing’s wrong about it! I wore it with a dress once and twice the way I have in the pictures but with different shoes! It incorporates the nautical trend along with the current hot colour, Orange. It’s always good to have a piece like this one to add the burst of colour to a monotone outfit.

Just a few things I’d like to mention -

  • When buying orange, choose a tone according to your skin colour. Brighter hues would look better on fairer skins and warmer hues with darker. So always keep that in mind. Colours can do great things for you but if not worn in account to your skin, they could bring out your worse.

  • When buying stripes, keep your body type in mind. Vertical stripes can make you look broader, so if you are on the heavier side, avoid vertical stripes and go for horizontal ones. On the other hand horizontal stripes can make you look taller.

  • When using one bright piece, try keeping the others neutral. This will not only make the outfit look balanced but will also let that one piece grab all the attention.

  • Cropped jackets are a good way to substitute blazers on warmer days!

  8. I read in a couple of fashion magazines that vertical stripes make you look thinner & Horizontal stripes make you look broader?

  9. Thank you everyone!! :)

    @ Rajashree, Thanks for the comment! :)Im not a stylist but this is just something i have observed while dressing up! Horizontal stripes take away the attention from the broadness because of an illusion that it creates. Vertical stripes on the other hand, bring attention to the broadness. However the size of the stripes also make a difference. This is just my opinion.

  11. Oh! I had read it in Femina actually, that skinny people should avoid wearing vertical stripes because it makes them look all the more thinner and heavier people should avoid horizontal stripes.
    I follow your blog. You are doing a good job girl. And personally, since Im a fashion freak myself and try to keep up with the current trend, I love all your posts and pictures. They're lovely :)
