Sale Must Have Jackets_Header

The comfort of having e-commerce in our lives has turned the entire shopping experience into one happy hobby time. If not for our cravings to add on some more clothing to our wardrobes, the e-commerce round the year sales are worth surfing through their thousands of collections; every now and then. Gone are the days when Sale season only meant the ‘end of season’ discounts galore. Now everyday is a discount sale on the web world. And now, when the cold breeze is wearing off slowly, giving way to the spring season, the end of season sale too can be seen reflecting on these .COMS! With massive discount festivals running a 3-day gala affair, with cut-offs as high as 80%, the shopping therapy just can’t get any better than that. How To Shop Smart Sale shopping might seem like a genuine blessing, but it is more a strategically planned marketing plan that the e-commerce giants milk on. Not saying that it’s bad for our health, but if you ain’t a smart shopper, you might get doped into buying something which is on ‘discount’ for almost the same amount as its actual costing. The idea is to analyse your cart carefully and ask yourself ‘Is this jacket worth spending INR XXX on?’. Don’t go by the discount cut only, but the actual worth of spending a few bucks on something which might actually look like a few pennies instead. Current Stocking Scheme I am one of those buyers who often check out the physical stores for their end of season sales, so as to invest in off season clothes that are worth a buy, will be in trend and will definitely last worth the money spent on them. Even if we are slowly approaching the spring season, we still have a …

Party Ready With Triumph Magic Wire

Getting ready to welcome in the New Year 2016? I’m pretty sure that you have finalised on your party ensembles, got your make up and hair done with heels polished to perfection. While most of us are focusing on these look-list essentials, we often ignore the very fact that the right inner wear too plays a major role in shaping up the ensemble. The wrong fit of your lingerie can make your posture look dull and non-appealing. And with an occasion like New Year’s Eve, it becomes more important to get things right; inside out! Well, this post is a last minute scribble for you all to figure out what type of lingerie will work best with your ensemble. And to set the examples right, I present to you my 5 amalgamations of New Year Party looks, in case you are still wondering what to wear for the perfect eve. Before I share my list of New Year Eve party looks, let me share a personal opinion on lingerie. For me, lingerie is all about wearing inner wear that is comfortable, soft and flexible. The last thing that a girl wants, as she steps out to party, is worrying about her lady parts to feel saggy and unfit. And if one plans on showing her grooves on the dance floor, the right fit and support of lingerie is essential. Triumph is one lingerie brand that doesn’t need any kind of introduction. Having been a hit in Asia and many parts of the Uk, the brand is famous for its high quality lingerie that pleases every requirement and size. Recently, they have announced their ‘Magic Wire Bra’ range as one of their finest and most successful range, so far. While many women avoid wearing a wired bra, it actually is a …

Benetton Fall15_Kalapalette1

Probably a little late to say that we are slowing crawling into the clench of frost-biting winters, but a Fall 2015 OOTD post had to happen! Being a summer baby (Yes! I hate the winter blues and prefer sunny side up any time), I am still trying to soak in as much summer warmth as possible. Out for my regular working day, I visited the shopping hub of Saket (Delhi) recently. While wandering through the shopping joints of the mall, I visited the mansion of signature Polo shirts and other flirty yet sporty silhouettes – Benetton and boy! I was in for a treat. United Colors of Benetton has, since the last few seasons, ventured into the serious business of fashion; with collections designed around current market trends and interests of the fashionistas; worldwide. This year too, for their Fall/Winter 2015 collection, the brand has presented a diverse range of western wear that advances from the basics to party, formal and casual wear. Having featured the Benetton Menswear 2015 Collection earlier, it was time for me to dress-up in ‘UCB’ tags and strut around the waiting lawns of Select Citywalk. Take a look at what I wore! First things first, I instantly fell in love with this colour blocked shirt from their Fall 2015. I mean, doesn’t it remind you of Picasso and his affair with colours?   I had been literally on hunt out for the perfect pair of reflector sunnies and this one from the brand just wooed me away! If you are wondering how come I managed to work up some make up, then well, it was the result of my meet with Sonic Sarwate of M.A.C. Psst have you checked out the video, yet? Here’s the LINK. I have a few big luggage bags from the brand and this time …

Amazon India Da Milano_Kalapalette1a

Ever since Amazon India has come into existence, online shopping experience has become a serious trend in the country. Country like India, where buying in bulk or buying in sale has always been a popular concept, is now well equipped with the modern amenities of a leisure lifestyle. Gone are the days when we used to step out in scorching sunlight, planning out days/months in advance, what we will wear for the festive celebrations. Now that the festivals are lined up closely in order (Starting this month), I had to give into the festive mood and feature something that every desi girl is currently doing – setting a look rack for the festivities. When Amazon India Fashion team decided to send across some love from their #MustHaveFashion category, I was instantly able to relate the colours and texture of the product to this celebratory season. Amazon India sent across a lovely structured Da Milano bag, which has been sophisticatedly textured on a pop of red tone to set the mood. The Ensemble Giving into the breezy autumn season, I picked up the kurti from a set of two that I purchased a couple of months back from Myntra. Breaking the monotony of the yellow printed kurti, I added a darker tone of palazzo pants that I thrifted from the locals of Delhi. The Print Festive season in India means embroidery and prints. Mostly, derived from the middle eastern influence, Paisley design is very famous in traditional Indian forms. One can opt for such detailed prints or keep it simple with gota patti or add dollops of embroidery to please the bling-struck festive feel. The Hand Bag Star of this outfit post is this Da Milano structured hand-bag. Like I had mentioned earlier too, I absolutely love the rich red colour of …

Happy Independence Day to all my ‘Desi Swaggers’! Hope you’ve all had an inspiring start of the day with a power packed speech by Mr. Modi over a cup of your hot Darjeeling Tea. The history of our country’s Independence is truly remarkable. Although we can never analyse the depth of struggle that our heroes put into giving us a free world that we live in now, such notable days are still worthy of paying tribute to our heroes and remembering them for their work and sacrifices. Their are several ways in which Indians celebrate the Independence Day. While some opt to fill their social media feeds with inspiring posts, few celebrate the day by watching historic movies over a palette of Indian cuisines; and then their are some who put up their best ethnic avatar to add on to the celebrations. Everything tangerine, green and white is their motto. Well, I too have been shuffling through my wardrobe, trying to pick the right trio coloured #ootd for the day. But don’t you think the same trio style every independence day has become a bit mundane? Well, for those who are feeling patriotic and are looking at adopting it to their personal style, how about a throwback to our Indian history and the styles of our great heroes? Fashion is a piece of art that too strives on inspiration that can float in from almost anywhere. On the occasion of India’s 69th Independence Day, presenting to you a list of some remarkable trends that were sworn in as a signature by our great Indian Heroes. Take a look!

Marrakech_Maxis_Trend_Kalapalette

Many a trends keep resurfacing time and now on the fashion front. From seeking retro summer trends inspiration of a legendary fashion show or editorial spread to simply soaking up the tones of a historic design has become a norm of this industry. But then there are certain ‘evergreen trends’ then tend to repeat with decades passing by and still manage to become a rage even in the current world of vogue wherein being quirky and normcore are absolutely normal! This international Spring Summer Trends 2015 showcase too saw some nostalgic Déjà vu’s happening on the runway, for both men and women. While most of the designs followed the basics and a few presented art on the front, their were a few designers who adored the classic trends and made it a point to present them in futuristic silhouettes that the people of the current world can adore and wear. There is something about the 1970’s (wish I was born in that era *Sigh!*) that keeps resurfacing in terms of fashion picks on designers labels. Have actually lost count of the times when someone referred a particular silhouette or design to something that was introduced in and around the 1970’s timeline. Was that the time our fashion goddess came down on earth and sprinkled some modish inspiration on our lace & layered land? Maybe! 1970’s Marrakech Maxi Flows We just can’t do without having some free-flow silhouettes in our summer wardrobe. Which is why any trend that works around these almost-floor touching fabric arrangements are a win-win situation for us. And when someone amalgamates it with bohemian side of style, the wishlist scribbles topple down with these added as the top priority. Many designers internationally and even on Indian front have presented this earthy yet eye-catchy trend on the runways this year. From …
