Outfit of the day featuring Wills Lifestyle|Signature collection

Hola,

I’m so happy to be back on track with blogging regularly. It feels super good to post everyday  and today i’m back with an outfit post for you all. Few months back when I was invited for the launch of the “Signature collection” at Wills Lifestyle, I found such amazing varieties of silhouettes, that are perfect for the summers and exclusively designed by the well known designers of our country. There were a couple of pieces that really caught my attention and one such beautiful outfit was a Lime green coloured Kaftan styled Tunic which had a pretty “Bandhni” work on it. The fabric was light and soft to touch and I knew I had to pick it up for myself and style this for you all.

Since the colour looked so soothing to the eyes, I paired it up with a white pair of trousers that i’d recently bought from Unlimited Stores and wanted to go for an easy breezy college/shopping look, so wore my flip flops from Myntra and my fringe bag from New Look. I wanted to go for all summery shades and hence avoided any kind of dark colours for the look. The whole idea of sporting this look was keeping in mind a perfect shopping day with your girlfriends with no hassle of clothes sticking to your body or any such discomfort, yet look stylish and put together.

The hair was tied in a loose pony tail and the makeup was kept minimal in this look with only some compact powder, a nice shade of Chambor liquid lipstick and some eyeshadow. Summers are all about wearing comfy loose but not shabby clothes. You need to know how to dress well even in the most loose fitted clothes without looking like you just got out of the bed. If you own loose T-shirts or tunics, you can always cinch your wait with a belt and look presentable instead of looking way too casual. I own loads of oversized clothes and I usually tie them at the sides or use a belt to kind of make it look my size and it really does the trick.

I am absolutely in love with this colour and fabric and I would really recommend you all to checkout the Wills Lifestyle store for their new Signature collection. I have another post coming up which is all about dressing up for a party in comfortable clothes. So stay tuned for that and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat@aishwaryamohan7 to know all about the upcoming posts, mini reviews and lots of randomness.

Men’s Casual Summer look |Chambray trend| Face of the Month June 2016

Hello everyone,

I’ve been suffering from a very bad cold since the past week and that’s why I have not been active on my social media or even posting blogs. But finally I decided to get up from the bed and post this look that was supposed to go live a long back.

Nothing will give you that immediate rockstar feel like a chambray shirt because it defines “understated cool”. The chambray shirt is one of those statement pieces that can never go wrong and has made sure it is here to stay. Pick white chinos or joggers for bottoms that look like summer and you are set to look effortlessly fashionable. Colours always incite a certain kind of feeling and perhaps blues remind us of the summer days. Or maybe it’s because it’s the easiest colour to match! Whatever it is, blue has been ubiquitous in spring/summer menswear collections.

So here is a look that i have put up for our Face of the Month for June on the blog, Hitesh who happens to be the blog’s official photographer too. He is the man behind for all the beautiful pictures on the blog and one of the reasons for making me look pretty for you all through his pictures. Hehehe

Since, he’s too camera shy, it was kind of difficult for me to convince him to do this shoot for me and a lot more difficult for me to make this tall boy pose for the pictures. But I think we did quite a good job and have come up with this simple casual look using a Chambray Shirt from Wills Lifestyle. We have paired the shirt with denim joggers which according to me is one of the best pieces that any guy can own in his wardrobe. Since it’s a summer look, we went for flip flops instead of shoes, but if you like wearing shoes, go for a nice pair of white sneakers or kicks and you can make this look even more stylish.

If you are not comfortable experimenting with joggers, you can always go for your good old pair of jeans or even white or beige chinos. You can convert this look into a party look by simply pairing them up with chinos and some brogues. Hitesh likes simple and effortless looks, hence he wanted to stick to this minimal look and he thinks this is something the college-goers can definitely try.

I saw this polka dotted chambray shirt at Wills Lifestyle and instantly picked it up for this shoot. They have an amazing Indigo collection and I think you guys should definitely check out their new collection. I have talked about their SS16 collection in my previous post HERE and how their men’s collection truly impressed me.

Chambray has such a cult status because of its off-duty cool vibe, so keep it simple and cool.  Do not try and think too hard about how to style this trend. However you decide to wear it, as long as you keep your look simple you will have that rockstar feel, trust me. Chambray is not just about the shirt. Recently, because of its popularity and versatility, it has expanded into the world of suits. The best part is, it’s a versatile item; By investing in some quality pieces, like a heavy feel shirt and a lighter weight one, you will be covered for every season.  Wear it under a coat for an extra layer, or wear it open as a coat itself.

If you own a chambray shirt or would want to own one, how would you style yours? Comment below and let me know and tell me what you think of this month’s face of the month? Would you like to get featured next month? Send me an email at thattripeurbanlife@gmail.com and I will definitely like to get back to you.

Unveiling the Wills Lifestyle Spring-Summer 2016 Collection

Hola,

Hope none of you are having trouble dealing with the Monday Blues today. I have been having super hectic and troublesome days but somehow trying to stay positive and getting through them. Back to the post for today, a few weeks back, I was invited by Wills Lifestyle for their SS16′ launch in Chennai. This was the first time I ever went for an event at Wills Lifestyle, but was in awe after seeing the beautiful collection they have come up with this year.

For me, Wills Lifestyle was always a place to buy my formal wears from, but with the spring summer collection this year, they have upped their game for sure. They have collaborated with some amazing and renowned designers from the industry and I got to style 4 models in my favorites from the collection. I wanted to create looks that were appropriate as casual brunch wear as well as those that can be worn to work but something apart from the boring basic colors.

I styled the male model in a striped pink Polo T-shirt along with black denims which went really well with his white kicks. To match with the casual look, I asked the female model to go for the assymetrical blue dress from Ritu Kumar and a white handbag from the collection. This look was created keeping in mind the scorching summers that we all are facing these days. The silhouettes were amazing and the fabrics used in this collection is super comfortable and wearable even during the day time

The next two models were styled for more of an office appropriate look or something that can be worn to official parties and events. When it comes to work wear, most of go for basic colors, but i think we can play with colors if styled in a subtle way. I love Nehru jackets and I feel men look so presentable when they wear a jacket like this on top of their shirts. So i gave the model this off-white Nehru jacket to pair it up with the blue formal shirt. I styled the female model in a pretty orange shift dress which I absolutely loved and accessorised it with a white clutch. You can even top it up with a summer blazer to give it a more professional look.

The 2016 Spring Summer collection is all about breezy fabrics and summery shades. You will find outfits that are so comfortable once put on. The men’s collection impressed me in every aspect. From the indigo/denim range to their formals, everything was stylish yet comfortable.
