Flaunt that body with these amazing prints this season

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? I hope you all have great plans for the weekend 😉 I was really happy with the fact that prints have come back in fashion and the sole reason why I like it is, it hides all those problem areas that we guiltily try to shy away from most of our lives. Nothing makes heads turn like the perfect print. But knowing which designs enhances your figure and learning how to style them flawlessly are some of the key factors to revamp your closet. So let me take you through a few prints which are my favorites.

POLKA DOTS:

This has been always my favourite favourite print. From dresses to tops to even my underwears have been filled with polka dots when this fashion had just come in . HAHAHAA. TMI!!

But always make sure to go for smaller polka dots as BIG polka dots make you look childish and a little at the bulkier side too. My suggestion would be to opt for darker shades of clothing with a contrast polka dots color and then you watch how the spotlight will be on you 🙂

FLORAL PRINTS:

My second favorite has to be the pretty floral prints. This is the best print to style up for your summer and spring season. But don’t think that florals can only be a girly thing. You can make it look all sophisticated and chic by teaming up with the right accessories, shoes and even outer wears like blazer and coats. But be very very careful as this print can make you like huge and wide if the right print is not chosen according to your body frame. If you have a broad figure, do not wear long sleeved clothes as this will accentuate all the wrong areas and make you look bulky. Team it up with some statement pieces like a nice golden bib, a cuff and a thin belt to cinch that figure and you are good to go. 😀

STRIPES:

If you are broad and short like me, then this is the best print for you. But as per the stylists, never go for horizontal stripes, as this will only make you look shorter and add weight to your body. The best option is to go for vertical stripes or even zig-zag or horizontal stripes. They make an illusion of a slimmer body and draw the eyes up and down, giving the illusion of height. Be sure that your clothes are tailored to fit you perfectly. If they are too tight or baggy, it can make your stripes lumpy and uneven, making you to look weird.

ANIMAL PRINTS:

Though I’m not a big fan of this print when it comes to clothes , but it’s been one of the most styled prints among celebrities, be it HOLLYWOOD or BOLLYWOOD. The most iconic one is the famous leopard print. You can find this print on handbags, shoes, leggings and dresses. If you plan to wear a leopard legging, keep the top plain and the vice versa applies as well. It can look a bit tacky, but if you think you carry off that style, go ahead girl!!! I like this style usually in bags, belts and even hair accessories.

HOUNDSTOOTH:

This is one pattern that is just universally flattering. Be it a petite woman or a curvy one, this just makes you stand out in the crowd. The reason behind it is, there’s so much design and pattern in it that there’s no part of the body where one can concentrate separately. My style tip would be to make sure the accessories and your shoes match up with the color of the outfit. This print is best if you want to flaunt a classy look. 😉

NAUTICAL STRIPES:

And the last one is the sailor-inspired stripes. They give you a very retro look and if you like to add some ooph to your appearance, this is the right print for you. This print just screams SUMMER in all its true sense. Classic black and white stripes have been around for ages, as one of the most beloved patterns in fashion history. Ever since Coco Chanel sported the timeless pattern on a boat neck shirt, it has become a popular summer choice for fashion-forward women all around the world, not just for young men catching fish on a boat. Pair a good nautical striped tee with your jeans or shorts to go for a sporty look. But if you want to play all quirky, wear a crop top with this pattern with some flared skirt and pumps and see what magic you do to the crowd.

So these were some of the major prints that are in vogue and I’m sure there are many other prints as well. If you guys know about other prints, do let me know in the comments window so that I can try them too. You see, there’s nothing exciting than gaining some knowledge about FASHION from my readers. I’m no fashion expert and these are just my personal choices and I hope you like some of these at least  🙂

 

Happy weekend 🙂

 

 

StreetStyleStore.Com Haul and Review

Hi Everyone,

 

It’s been a while since I posted here. I was a little busy coping up with my CAT preps and then had to come back to Bangalore from home (homesick already 😦 ). Anyway that was off topic. So today I’ll be posting my first ever haul on the blog and along with a review about this website called Streetstylestore.com that offers an amazing variety of footwear, bags and the newly added section for chic and sexy clothing as well.

I stumbled upon this website through an ad which I saw on Facebook I think a year back and noticed that they have some luring and interesting collection.There are different offers that are available on their website like 3 pairs for 999 INR, 2 pairs for 999INR etc and the designs are pretty cool and very different from those one come across on other websites or even in a store.

Though the first time I helped ordering 2 pairs of sandals for my best friend’s sisters at 999INR and he paid through card for it. The website says the shipping takes 7-21 days, but for our shock the sandals never arrived in the mentioned time. We even tried to find a number on their site to contact them and much to our surprise there was no contact number available. All we could do was just email them and no response from their end. After almost 1.5 months the footwear arrived and what I got to know from my friend was that they looked of a very cheap quality.

Well, so this time around a month back I visited their website and ordered 3 pairs for 999 INR and decided to choose cash-on-delivery instead of paying online to stay away from all the tension and headache which my friend had to go through. After around a month later when I almost forgot about my order my package arrived. The 3 pairs were stuffed in a cardboard box and the condition of the box didn’t look much appealing to me as well.

Lets get into this haul and I’ll also tell you what I feel about them as well!!!!

Here to staple:

And this is how it looks in real. This one’s my favorite among all the 3 in the haul. It has a very bohemian look to it with all that tassels going on 🙂

And this what I received. I expected the straps to be rigid enough to stand straight, instead of it all over the place, falling haphazardly. 😦

What I received in the package. The sandals in the picture looked so awesome and unique, but it was a total bummer only because of the flimsy material of the strap and the soles looked very prone to easy wear and tear. Though love the color combo 😀

I really liked the unique designs of the 3 sandals but was very disappointed by the quality as the straps looked very fragile and delicate and I doubt it would last a long time if you do not take good care of it and end up getting stuck in the rain with these sandals. I have a very mixed impression about this website and when you visit their Facebook page, you will see many complaints about package not delivered to the customers and comments getting deleted from their pages if it is kind of negative for them. But I kind of liked the footwear as you shouldn’t expect a lot when you pay 300 rs for a sandal. It has to be made with materials worth that money. Except the delivery time and their lack of customer service, the only thing that draws me to their website is their unique designs and great offers.

Pros:

  • Great and unique designs
  • Amazing deals and bargains

Cons:

  • Horrible delivery time
  • Lack of product details on the website
  • No customer care number to contact

Here are a few tips to those who wish to purchase from SSS (streetstylestore.com):

  • Always opt for cash on delivery and not pay online
  • Zoom in the pictures to find out about the material of the products as there’s no product details available
  • Have a lot of patience as the package will take almost a month to reach you most of the times

I had an okayish experience with streetstylestore.com and I will definitely want to checkout their awesome collection of bags and clothing section soon. If any of my sweet readers have ever ordered their bags or clothes do share your experience with me. Also do let me know if you found this haul interesting and if you would like to purchase any of these 3 footwear. All the links have been mentioned below the pictures to directly go to their website.

 

Have an awesome weekend my lovelies!!! 🙂
