Athleisure Life-2| How to Style Men’s Joggers| Tips and Tricks

Hello everyone,

How’s the week treating you all? I have one final submission to go for this semester and will have a long vacation ahead! Yay!!! As promised, here’s the second edition to ‘Athleisure Life’ series, where we will be talking about styling ideas for men’s joggers and some tips and tricks. You can read the previous posts Here and Here

Even though, some of you might not like the idea of wearing your lounge pants to work or to a social event, but trust me, it’s not as weird as you think. From high-end brands to your local stores, joggers are creating a revolution in men’s fashion industry. It has definitely evolved from the baggy, loose-fitted pants to more tapered and structured to fit your body and go along with various combinations.

  • Try it with a T-shirt or a casual plaid shirt:

T-shirts are the easiest for any guy to pick from his wardrobe and pairing them with denim joggers is the simplest way to look comfortably stylish. If you own joggers that are of chino-material or even corduroy fabric, I would suggest you to go for a casual shirt and avoid fancy T-shirts.

We picked up this denim jogger and the full-sleeved T-shirt from Bewakoof.com. They have some great collection of joggers for men and we were quite drawn towards this particular combo. It’s best to keep the look simple and casual when you are going for joggers because in the end, they were originally made for casual or lounging right! Go for monotone colours and wear them with a simple pair or trainers or sneakers to keep the look laid back and understated.

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you are going for a smart-casual look, try looking for a pair of joggers that are fitted or more tailored and structured pair. But make sure to get the right one! You don’t want to look like you are wearing your girlfriend’s leggings right! The joggers should be loose fitted at the thighs and the crotch area.
  • If you want to experiment with colours, go for varied colours in joggers. But be careful to keep the rest of the look simple and not loud.
  • Try a light coloured Polo shirt with a dark shade joggers and to keep the look casual, accessorize it with a cap and some trainers.
  • Of course, outer wears will add more to your look. There are options from denim jackets to bomber jackets to even biker jackets. For a more work appropriate attire, go for a semi-formal blazer with your joggers.
  • The best pair of footwear to team up with your joggers are trainers. You can even go for some converse or plimsolls too.

So there are a lot of ways you can style your joggers and for men, the options are a lot. All you need before buying your pair of joggers is to understand your body type and what fabric suits you the best. And the most essential, not to follow the trend blindly. Only if you think, the style suits you, go for it because you always have the good looking chinos and jeans in your wardrobe! 😀

We were quite excited to shop from Bewakoof, but unfortunately after just one wash, the T-shirt shrunk to almost 2 sizes down which was such a disappointment. But this was also because we didn’t pay attention the washing instructions for the fabric. So when you are shopping on their website, make sure to check the fabric and follow the wash instructions to avoid any mishaps like we did!

Athleisure Life| How to style Joggers for Women| Tips and Tricks

Hello lovely people,

Do you remember how I told you “Athleisure” is all in trend these days in one of my previous posts? If you don’t recall reading the post, you can click HERE. The age is all about comfortable clothes that helps you breathe through your clothes but also make you look stylish. Joggers are one of the most comfiest as well as trendy looking piece of outfit and currently trending everywhere. Try searching on Pinterest and you will find so many jogger looks and you have one suiting every person’s style. Regardless of whether you are going to the gym or to meet your friends or to even to work, you can style your joggers in so many different styles appropriate to the occasion.

When Bewakoof.com sent us some of their awesome joggers and graphic tees, we knew we would have fun working on this shoot. Though it took quite a long time for us to put up this shoot due to many unforeseen factors, but here is the Part 1 of the “How to style Joggers” post where we would be focussing only on styling joggers for women.

Since Joggers are meant to be a casual outfit, the best way to style them is pairing up with a graphic tee and some sneakers (I would say white goes the best with all colours). I am not a fan of boxy tees but when I saw this Captain America crop boxy tee on Bewakoof.com, I thought to myself, “Well! Why not experiment!” and picked these up. I already own basic coloured joggers and hence wanted to try out a different colour. This pastel coloured joggers with “Tres Chic” printed on it looked pretty and my type and knew would go well with all the tees and shirts I own.

The second look is for a cooler or a windy day, where all you can do is just put on a flannel shirt over your tee or tank top and you are good to go. This is a perfect outfit for your school or college where you would look presentable and stylish but in a lot more comfortable way. Though these are just my regular glasses, but adding a pair of glasses would definitely give you the stylish nerdy look :D. Scroll down for all the outfit details and some tips and tricks to flaunt that pair of joggers in your wardrobe.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Start with basic colours like black or grey if you are trying out joggers for the first time.
  • Look for the right fit- fitted at the waist and ankle and a bit looser at the thigh section.
  • Dress them down with graphic tees and tank tops along with sneakers and dress them up with feminine blouses, bustiers with some sexy heels.
  • Strappy sandals with joggers- a complete No-No!
  • For cooler days, pair a denim jacket or a leather jacket with a tank top or a blouse inside for a more ‘work-appropriate’ look.
  • Try accessoring with some statement pieces or a cute bag for a more dressy look for night outs and parties.

Bewakoof.com is definitely your place to shop joggers from denims to playful ones. And not to forget, their shirt dresses and graphic and fun tees are Oh So Awesome! Stay tuned for the Part 2 of this post where we will be talking about styling men’s joggers.

Casual Comfy Outfit to the movies

Hola,

How many of you like going to the movies all dressed up and a little presentable? I was definitely not one of those until recently when I felt like a sloth going to the movies to my neighbourhood movie hall and saw everyone all dressed up like I would do for attending a party! That’s when I decided to make some efforts rather than just wear my PJs or similar looking pants.

But here’s a thing, I go to watch movies to get entertained and be all comfy while eating my big tub of popcorn and soda and I’m not going to feel any better if I wear a dress or a skirt with a fancy crop top. Hence tights are my go to option for the movies or for mall outings these days. I literally live in my tights ever since I lost a bit of extra fat from my thunder thighs. The best part about tights are they are so versatile! You can pair them up with a crop top (if high waisted tights), a simple tee, skirt, shorts, kurtas and what not and that’s why I love them so much.

I recently went to watch the movie “Sully” and this was my outfit for the evening. Since it was a windy evening, I had to wear this pom-pom woolen cap to make sure my hair doesn’t go all cray-cray! The best part about this outfit is that it’s not only comfortable and chic (trying adding a scarf for that pop-up fashion statement), but also a perfect everyday fall outfit. Scroll down for outfit details.Hope you like the pictures!

Revlon Perfect Matte Nail Enamels- Review and Swatches

Hello everyone,

I love matte lipsticks and when Revlon sent me three of their newly launched Matte Nail Enamel shades , I was excited to try them out. The colours I received were, Marine Matte, Sunny Matte and Cool Matte and each of these are priced at 190 INR. They currently come in 8 shades ranging from reds to corals to blues.

Shades available: Hot Matte, Marine Matte, Coral Matte, Rosy Matte, Cool Matte, Sunny Matte, Flaming Matte and Crimson Matte.

Price: 190 INR

This was the first ever time I was trying matte nail paints and I was so surprised by the fast drying formula of these nail paints. But this could be a disadvantage too, if you don’t close the lid of the bottles fast. The consistency is  a bit runny but goes opaque in 2-3 coats. The colours look super intense due to the matte finish and looks really classy on the nails be it long or short nails.

The only point that was a bit disappointing was it’s longevity, but that might be also because I do the house chores including washing utensils everyday. With all the washing and cleaning, the nail paint was still intact for 4-5 days after which it started chipping at the tip. I would suggest to apply a matte top coat to make sure that the nail paint stays for a longer period of time and to avoid chipping.

Despite all this, I absolutely love the colours and how it looks on my nails. Ever since I moved to the new place, I haven’t been getting time to go for manicure and have a bit of a dry skin around the nails. But these nail paints still make my hands look nice and presentable. Since I wanted to try all the three colours at once (call me impatient!), I thought of trying some easy nail art and this is the best I could come with, without any nail art brushes. I’m a total amateur when it comes to nail art, hence this was real fun to do and I was jumping around like a happy kid with my colourful nails. HEHEE!!!

I would totally recommend the Revlon  Matte Nail Enamels as they are not heavy on the pockets compared to some of their other matte counterparts and if you don’t mind changing nail colours on a weekly basis, this is totally your stuff. My ratings for the product would be 4.5/5 only because of its short staying and a need for a top coat.

Let me know in the comments below if you like the concept of matte nail paints and which one is your favourite shade among the three. Don’t forget to follow us on our social media channels to know what we are up to.                                          Till then stay awesome 😀Read More »
