Hello hello, how have you all been. This post is about how not to get Over The Top with Metallic hues. As you know I mostly style myself on a whim don’t really like to plan a lot because I love how I manage to put together some fun stuff that may not happen if I plan it too much. Sometimes just because I don’t have time to iron a already ironed but crumpled shirt I manage to wear a totally random top with another random skirt and voila I suddenly have an entirely different outfit .
In my interactions with a lot of women I Style Coach I have figured that a lot them aren’t too comfortable adding metallic hues thinking it gets too much ….well if everything is all metallic one may look like a disco ball but a dash of it can add instant glamour to your outfit.
You might want to go easy on blingy accessories while wearing metallic hued clothes. The idea is to not to add more shine or weight to the look, let the metallic shine like literally …. let me show you how I wore a metallic top and yeah I wasn’t going for a night out….but you could most definitely replicate the look easily from day to night …. I Paired it with my favourite high waisted wide legged flowy pants and to put the look together I wore a belt….Like I always say say there is no problem that a belt can’t solve ….hahhahhhha….my absolute favourite accessory any day is a belt….!!!!
I finished the styling with brand new favourite black block heels from one of my favourite shoe brand and rose tinted sunglasses ….I guess this instantly took my look to the 70’s…. one of the most fashionable fashion decades…..

Hello my lovelies…. today’s post is on my favourite favourite fashion thing to do…. no no….not shopping but making your wardrobe look like you have 3 times more clothes than you actually do…well if you do the math and understand permutation and combinations then it’s way way more than just thrice…..YUP!!!…you heard….ooopppsss! …you read right…
If math is not your thing and just fashion is still this should interest you. My previous post on styling my White shirt dress with velvet Pyjama Pants was one in the series…. that I so feel about….and today is an extension of the same…..If you always wear a combination in a certain way only…..always…. then its time for this style coach to give you more ideas.
I have these beautiful cotton silk printed pants which I wear in a different way almost always, the trick is simple and the magic mantra is mix and match….. Borrow an element that is an extension or is a compliment of one garment and take it forward from there….and most of the time I hear is ….new pants by the people who have seen me wear this before….besides great laundry skills (…..I have an obsession of taking care of my clothes nicely….calls for another post) it is about how I styled it differently…. Hoping that this photo documentation of how I mixed and matched gives you ideas to do something similar with your wardrobes……
So these Pants in one of my favourite…… favourite colours….Blue… with Indian Prints …I Know that you that I drool over Indian prints and textiles….just can’t get enough in my wardrobe……I decided to pair it with a cold shouldered top in beautiful wine-burgandyish colour….different colour families….both very strong colours yet…complimenting each other…..
I wasn’t done making statements just as yet……Paired them with these gorgeous Jhumkis in silver….timeless…Don’t even get me started on statement jewellery…….hahhahahhaaaa !!!
Since I had put together bright coloured ensemble with statement jewllery already thrown in and it was day time makeup was very nude neutral…. I wore my trusted Jooti’s and hair tied in a low pony I was ready to showcase the Mix and Match story to you….
