1. Layer it like a boss!

Our Social Media Manager, Gopika E.M., is giving us layering goals! She’s wearing a fringed skirt with the cutest collared top, and for that extra mile, she’s thrown on the perfect oversized summer coat.
2. Gravitate towards graphic tees!
Been there, done that? Think again. Graphic tees go way beyond the jeans-and-sneakers pairing. Add a little creativity and style, and these T-shirts can solve almost any fashion dilemma. They are by far the quickest and easiest way to up the cool factor in your ensemble. Ergo, making you look effortlessly chic.

3. Just another shirt? Don’t think so!
Shirts - love them or hate them, we can never do without them. A little boring, you say? Wrong. Easily turn your plain old shirt into a fun tie up cropped shirt by simply...tying it up at the bottom! Yes, it’s that easy! A brand new look that will kick boring right out of your closet!

4. The Indo-Western fusion
Mixing Indian ethnic designs and outfits with Western wear is a guaranteed way to look sophisticated and unique! Stay rooted whilst looking absolutely fabulous - this look just resonates the modern Indian girl, that is, all of us!

In a beautiful blend of Indian and Western wear is our Social Media Coordinator, Dakshee, who is giving us some major fusion inspiration. Giving a completely new twist to the sari, she has teamed it with her skinny jeans and looks drop-dead gorgeous. We recommend you try this one out!
5. Statement pieces
For the lazy days, adding just that one statement piece can automatically lift up your outfit to a whole new level. Statement neckpieces or shoes, if added to an otherwise plain outfit, is a sure shot way to amp up your look. Never let a dull day kill your vibe!

6. Colour block
There are days when we don’t want to wear prints, and there are some of us who are just not into prints. You can still wear a solid colour and refrain from looking bland and boring. The key is blocking - colour blocking! Wear a bright hue that pops and pair that with another equally delicious colour and BAM! You have an outfit that doesn’t even come in the same zip code as boring. Stick to a minimum of three colours.

I paired a bright coral skirt with a simple moss green top, and I think the effect was pretty great, even if I say so myself! And if you want to take it up yet another notch, try adding a funky accessory like a hat. Trust me, I had a blast!
