Mix matching colors, fabrics and playing fusion with silhouettes is a common story. But what becomes experimental is when you try to throw a print on another print. Yes, I am talking about the crazy amalgamation of say, Houndstooth over Gingham print. How’s that for an inspiration? Having been following up on French Connection India collection for over 3 years now, I had to checkout their SS’14 collection too. Although, a little late from the general standards of featuring an SS’13 collection (now that the monsoon is coming), I had to share what I found in French Connection India’s SS’14 collection. Being an international brand, French Connection makes sure to include the current trend in their collection, like always! Just like last year’s SS’13 collection saw lots of neon and solid palette love, this year adapted the international runway trend of Print on Print. Not just prints, but French Connection has showcased a line of breezy summer fabrics, quirky prints and a dash of glitter too. Take a look at the collection! With a collection so artistic, I had to create a few looks with em! So much to choose, experiment and mix-match with, I had a great time putting up the following 4 looks for all my readers. Check them out. Print on Print Rules 1. Always match the solid tones of two prints. Eg. A black print on white solid base will always go with a white print on a black solid base. 2. Neutral print goes with a colorful print. 3. Mix prints in similar color family. 4. Same patter can be matched in different scales/print sizes. 5. Add a solid element to break up the prints. Now that you have enough reasons to try out this fun trend, go ahead and visit your nearest French Connection …

Monochromatic Affair with Calvin Klein Jeans India

Fashion industry is one place where you make rules to be not to be followed. A while back winters were all about warm, mundane and dark shades of black/grey/mustard and so on; while summers on the other hand was all about matching the sunlight. Bright colors, pastels, icecream shades, floral patterns, loose silhouettes and so on. But now it seems as if the industry has had a flip side. Now *Winter 2012* for instance, was all about pastels, neons, bright colors, large pattern blocks, oversized cardigans and wool taking inspiration from summer trends. On the other hand, Summer/Spring 2013 has turned out to be a serious amalgamation of Black and White. While some high street brands are swearing by the but-obvious summer trends, Calvin Klein Jeans has another haute story to tell…. Apart from the overdose of Neons, CKJ has revived the evergreen trend of Blacks & Whites. Check out a wide variety of casuals to some serious suiting up range from Calvin Klein’s Summer/Spring Collection 2013. When in doubt, wear black (and white). This combination not only makes you look slim, but if you pick up the right print and  cut, you just might look taller, sexier and hotter.                    If layering, don’t forget to keep a balance between solids, prints, shimmers and matte. Calvin Klein Jeans has a lot to play around with. Let this experimental monochrome collection  B&W which defines your personality. Check out the mini video showcasing the MONOCHROME AFFAIR http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXcIlaRVw3U&feature=youtu.be&a I personally loved the collection as currently Neons and Ombre have taken the fashion industry by storm. This collection proved to be refreshing, reviving and ravishing! Check out the Calvin Klein Jeans Connection Facebook Website Store : Shop No 38, G F Select City Walk,  Plot No A-3, P-1b District …
