A How To Guide To Dressing Up Without Dressing Down!

January 16, 2012

Fashion was never about showing skin! It’s as much about being dignified and elegant, as it is about staying trendy and chic. But can you pull off Spring Summer 2012 without showing an inch of skin? Hells yeah!

In many parts of the world, especially in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent, women face one big style issue: Dressing Up Versus Dressing Down so here’s a How –to Guide to dressing up in style while keeping it on ;-)

The Shirt dress:
Don the breezy long, loose shirt on a warm spring day. Wear it over a pair of opaque printed leggings and ankle boots. Top it off with a skinny belt in any one of the colors picked from your leggings and you’re good to go! Don’t forget to add that cute sling bag for a fun, casual day- in- the- city look. Add a scarf, around your neck like a snood or a kerchief for that Parisian summer look!

The Maxi:
The trend continues from last season, taking an asymmetrical shape in skirts and dresses. Pick a maxi dress or skirt in a neutral color and accessories it with bight pops of neon (such a hot trend for spring summer ‘12!) on accessories. A light and girly, summery maxi with a bomber or biker jacket( to toughen it up a bit) is all you need for the super hot on-trend look! Also pick out a stack of chunky bangles, bracelets or a big cuff and several big rings to complete the summer hot boho chic look.

The Classic White Tux Blazer:
You can’t possible think of spending the next summer without the classic while tux blazer in your closet- It can really elevate an outfit! Get in on the androgynous flavor of the season and take on the Bianca Jagger classic white tux look!  Well fitted crisp shirt buttoned up to the collar, pleated trousers and pumps are given a classic androgynous  twist with the spring summer 2012 must have- the White tux blazer! Hey you can even throw in a bow tie to complete the Oh-So-Chic look.
