Fashion is a tough nut to crack, especially in winters. This winter, we round up some weird fashion fails that can make you say ‘what the…?’ One needs to understand that winter can look fashionable yet comfortable. Why is ‘Skin show’ a fashion statement, specifically in winters? If you ever find out an answer to this, do hit us up in the comment section below!

Here are some wackiest fashion trends of winter:

Ripped Jeans

There are things that can make you doubt their existence. Ripped jeans are one of them. They look cool in summers but in winters? What’s even their purpose? We see girls walking around in thigh/knee high boots, sweaters and ripped jeans! Such fashion statements can make you go bonkers. There’s still some winter breeze going through the tiny distressed holes, sister! You may want to take care of that.

Crop Sweatshirts/Sweaters

Next on our list is yet another brainstorming fashion trend, crop sweater or sweatshirts. When we hear the word sweater, all we could think of is a comfy, cozy & warm clothing item. But fashion has evolved. And this evolving fashion goes over our head.  A lot of women find them cute or let’s say ‘dope’. Last time when we checked, the purpose of sweaters were to keep us warm during the cold weather. Sweater and sweatshirts being cropped can still be considered when the weather is mildly cold. We still won’t take them into consideration. SMH

Cold Shoulders

Talking about crop sweaters and sweatshirts, we cannot skip cold shoulder sweaters. While this looks super cool and airy in summers, it looks equally discomforting in winters. Why would someone wear a sweater but with two big holes on either of the shoulders? The sight of it gives me chills, reminds me how cold it is! Well agreed, it can still be worn in mildly cold weather like in fall. But to take it further in winters…it’s just sheer stupidity.

Netted Sweaters

With cold shoulders, crop sweaters, there’s another one that just cannot serve the purpose it is supposed to go with its name! Netted sweaters- still a better option if you wear something underneath, something warm and layer it with something, still looks comfortable. But it still makes me doubt its existence!

Finger Cut Gloves

Saved the best for the last, finger cut gloves! Gloves are supposed to keep our hands warm and we get it, with the evolving lives that requires interaction with technology. Technology like mobile phones, laptops, biometric and etc. The option is either you wear it or you don’t wear it. Leaving your fingertips, just the tips exposed to cold, they get numb! Raising the question, why? I’d suggest you wear it while you travel and once you’re inside your office/school/college/homes, you can easily work with warm-enough hands! It does make sense right? Fingerless gloves do serve a purpose but it still makes us doubt the purpose of warming our hands while the fingertips are peeping out of them!

Fashion is evolving. And how! This blog pretty much talks about some silly stuff that many of you might not relate to. “Fashion” is about comfort and feeling good. What’s the point if you are not comfortable because it is quite visible that when you wear such pieces, you’ll shiver and shrink! Why keep your health at stake because of making a statement or impressing anyone? Confidence is the key to make any fashion trend to stand out and make an impact! If you’re not confident enough to pull it, it definitely is going down. Winter clothing can be classy and fashionable too. Try trench coats, high waist jeans, knee high boots, and a lot more. Want to know few basic that can make you look fashionable and stylish even in winters? I’d get back with another blog with few basics to style and be equally fashionable but comfortable and confident! Self-confidence is the best outfit, so style it and rock it! Alas, it’s your choice. Maybe they’re comfortable, just not to us!

Darjeeling located in West Bengal was the Summer resort for the British Elite class back in the pre-independence time. Darjeeling has always remained famous for three things. Firstly is the Black Tea- the aroma of this tea is believed to be the best in this world and till today the best quality of Darjeeling tea is sent to the Buckingham Palace because the Queen loves it. Secondly, the railway transport of Darjeeling is also famous which is a narrow gauge railway and is declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thirdly, the British-style public schools here attracts students from all over India and the world. But the most important point is, of course, Kangchenjunga- the world’s 3rd highest mountain. But apart from these identities of Darjeeling, do you know that shopping in Darjeeling should also be an important part of your tour plan.

Mumbai is known as the financial capital of India. All the rich and famous people live here. Mumbai is in the wish-list of many people across India majorly for being the seat of Bollywood. But apart from that, Mumbai is quite a vibrant place with lip-smacking street food, wonderful architecture, and of course the roaring Arabian Sea. On one side lies the rich and cream of the society and on the other side lies the poor and dejected Dharavi- world’s largest slum. So, Mumbai is a place of a stark contradiction too. Therefore, very easily, you would find the posh and luxurious products at both at expensive rates and cheap rates. In this blog, I will let you know some of the best yet cheapest shopping destinations in Mumbai.

Girls, Bollywood inspired lehngas are our dream dress! We all daydream about Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra’s designer pieces. And yet we know, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea to afford the same. But “shaadi karungi toh Kareena wala lehnga pehen ke karungi nahi toh dulhe ko bolo tata-bye bye ho jaye”, as quoted by Alia Bhatt in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, we all want it to happen. As easy as it may sound to hush away the ladka wallas just for a lehenga, it’s not. Growing up watching Karan Johar’s grand weddings set up, we somewhere have pictured ourselves wearing the heavy, embroidered, and embedded with stones blinding us with their shine lehngas. Hands down, it’s our DREAM to walk down to our handsome grooms wearing that. Alas, it’s all in a dream, we know it. Now if we’re done with the nostalgia, let’s come back to the reality. And coming back to the reality here’s a happy news for you, we bring you the ultimate gem for all you beautiful brides-to-be!

As much as we know what we want for our D-Day, we know Chandni Chowk is the hub for some really gorgeous looking ethnic designs also because of the affordable prices this place offers. Adding to your excitement, this treasure is loaded with lehngas that are breath-taking.

How to reach to Navya Collection Chandani Chowk Delhi?

Fashion! It is an ever-changing industry. Fashion Trends keep changing every few months. What was considered trendy in July won’t be trendy in December and this is the beauty of this industry. Designers come up with new ideas every single day by putting their heart and soul into it. Moreover, it often makes a comeback like the Big Loose Shirts from 90s made its way back to 2018, bell sleeves from the 70s or patchwork denim from 80s. Good fashion choices always find their way back.

But apart from all the amazing fashion trends, there are some disastrous ones too! The trends which are followed by many but no one actually understands them. Not everything titled as the latest fashion trend looks good. Here is a list of 5 fashion trends I do not find as trendy as they sound:

Too Much of Ripped!
Too Much of Ripped!

Don’t get me wrong, I love ripped jeans. Ripped jeans are amazing and they do make your outfit look trendy. What I fail to understand is that why did people take this trend to another? They have started to wear not only ripped jeans but super ripped jeans. Wearing ripped jeans is one thing and wearing torn is another. You can’t just wear something which looks torn and roam around the streets. When you look someone wearing super ripped jeans, you might think they took it too far but hey, no! Ever seen people wearing ripped jeggings? Yes, that’s what taking it too far looks like. It is not the right material to rip and it looks terrible.

Furry Slides

I always wonder why do people wear furry slides. I mean what purpose do they serve? Do they look good? No! Do they keep your feet warm? No! Do they make one look sloppy? Yes! Why wear something which looks terrible and makes no sense.

You do not have to follow every fashion trend celebrities follow. Their life is way different than ours. They do not have to use public transport wearing those fashion trends. STOP wearing Furry Slides people!

Sweater Crop Tops

Last time I checked, sweaters were supposed to make you feel warm. They are supposed to cover you when it’s cold not make you feel cold. Does it make any sense to wear something warm which isn’t covering you or protecting you from the cold? Just because it looks good, doesn’t mean you have to fall sick. Most people who wear Sweater crops tops complaint about being cold! Why wear it, people? Didn’t you decide to wear a sweater because you were cold?

Fake Tanning

Now this is pure hypocrisy! We mock people for a darker skin shade and yet want our skin shade to be darker? Do you realize that it makes one look fake and stupid! Whereas people with a darker skin colour want to be fair? Stop messing around with your skin colour. Every shade is beautiful and even if one wants to go for a tan, then why do you go for over tanning? It does not look good! Remember Ross from friends with his Tan look? Yes, that’s how you look with a fake tan.

Extreme Eyebrows

So what’s the obsession with faking your eyebrows? Thick eyebrows look nice but so does thin ones. Why do people need to fill their eyebrows with eyebrow pencil? It looks good, and I understand people like doing it. What looks bad is overdoing them! Like you might have seen people with more eyebrow pencil than the real eyebrow! What’s that about? It looks fake, doll!

Chokers

This is something I will never understand! Why are chokers so cool and why are they trendy? These are often referred to as bold fashion! In my opinion, Chokers are similar to a dog’s collarbone!

So, these are the fashion trends I feel shouldn’t be called trendy! Although everyone has their own comfort zone and fashion sense but hey, it wouldn’t hurt to go for something better, something which doesn’t make you look awful. You don’t have to go for everything celebrities wear. In my opinion, fashion is something which makes one feel good and comfortable, not what’s trendy!

The prime challenge during the winter season is the lack of moisture in the air that leaves an itchy and lackluster skin. You cannot always depend on cosmetic products for that natural glow and glamor of your skin. Of course, they must be great but it is always a safe option to use the naturally occurring things for a good winter skincare. These natural things don’t give you that shine readily unlike the cosmetic products. But the radiance on your skin after regular use of natural stuff is something that people would notice in you. Some also may feel jealous!

Every time when you step out of your house especially in daytime, you cannot apply the cold creams or lotions. Because they would attract more dirt and dust leading to pimples and acne. Therefore, when you are at home, you have to use certain things on your skin so that the moisture is retained even when you go out in the chilly breeze.

Learn these tips and tricks to own that radiant skin in the winter season. And pile up your table with these easily available products.

Honey

Even our favorite icon Bebo aka Kareena Kapoor Khan also says in her interviews that she never skips applying honey on her face. Honey is a natural remedy to dry skin and gives an enviable glow to your skin. You can use it directly on your skin or mix it with other things like rose water and milk or yogurt. The consistency of honey is quite thick and thus it won’t be easy to apply it on your skin. Therefore, you have to dilute it with rose water or milk. Take half a spoon of honey and mix with half a spoon of milk and rose water. You would see a change in your skin tone and texture after a week! Before you notice yourself, people around you would notice that surely.

Winter is also the time when there are endless parties at your place, friends place, or at a pub. So, there would be a surplus of alcohol quite naturally. I am saying it from a personal experience that whiskey works wonderfully for your skin. I mixed 1 spoon of whiskey with 1 spoon of honey and rose water. The glow on my skin was to die for!

So, a jar of Dabur Honey or any other brand of honey is all you need for winter skincare.

Rose Water

Rose Water is essential for all kinds of seasons. It works as a great toner for the skin. As the makeup base also, you can apply some rose water on your skin. After cleansing your face and neck, apply some rose water. Or mix this rose with all the variety of face packs that are available in the market. You can mix this rose water with orange peel powder, rose powder, or sandalwood powder. The orange peel, rose, and sandalwood powder of Everyuth is really good and comes at a minimal rate. Simply take 1 spoon of these powders and mix with required rose water for that glow on your face. Make a habit of applying these face packs every alternate day.

Take sandalwood powder for yourself if you have a very oily skin. If you have a mixed skin, then take rose powder or orange peel powder.

So, Dabur Gulabari or another brand of rose water should be in your list of winter skincare shopping.

Oranges

The presence of vitamin C in this fruit works wonders for skin and also fights diseases! So, while driving back home, stop by the fruit seller and take the juicy and refreshing oranges. Have 1 orange daily after half an hour of your lunch meal. Keep one piece of orange for an easy winter skincare. Simply squeeze the orange and apply it directly on your face and leave it. It would take hardly 5-7 minutes for your skin to soak it up. Then rinse your face with normal water. If you follow this simple routine for at least 10 days, you would see a great result.

And there is a long list of other ways to use it. You can squeeze the juice of oranges and take 2 spoons of it and mix with half spoon of honey. You can use orange juice with sandalwood powder. Or you can mix the required orange juice with a spoon or two of gram flour or besan which can replace your face wash!

Bananas

You get this fruit easily every season. Bananas are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium, and other fibers. Eat bananas in your breakfast and also don’t forget to use it as a winter skincare mask.

The simplest and easiest way is to mash half a banana very well and mix with some rose water simply if you are in a hurry or running out of other things. Apply on your skin properly and let it sit for some time and then go for a good massage before rinsing.

When you have enough time to pamper yourself during the weekend, you can make a nice banana face pack with yogurt and honey that would cleanse and moisturize your skin beautifully. Take half or 1 banana and mash it properly. You may churn it in a blender for a smoother consistency. Take 1-2 spoons of yogurt, 1 spoon of Aloe Vera gel, and 1 spoon of honey and mix all these together. Apply nicely on your face, neck, and hands and leave for a good half an hour. Now, massage while rinsing.

Your skin would feel young, rejuvenated, and supple just like a baby!

Aloe Vera Gel

Many people think that planting an Aloe Vera plant would give easy access to Aloe Vera gel and commit the mistake of applying the gel directly. The raw Aloe Vera gel may lead to irritation on your skin as it contains latex. So, even when you are thinking to extract the gel directly from the plant, you can do so but only after discarding the latex. But to be on the safe side, you can buy a tube of Aloe Vera gel which is good too. The easiest and simplest procedure to follow all through the winter season is to apply Aloe Vera gel properly on your face and neck before going to sleep.

In the morning, cleanse your face first with cleansing milk and then rinse with water. Now you can apply an Aloe Vera gel face pack. Take 1 spoon of turmeric powder, 1 spoon of milk, half spoon of honey, half spoon of rose water, and half spoon of Aloe Vera gel. You can do this once every week.

Another simple formula is to take half spoon each of Aloe Vera gel, honey, and rose water. The trick is to mix all these three and give a nice massage to your face and neck for at least 5 minutes. You may go for a shower if you are in a hurry or let the pack stay on your face for another 10 minutes after massage.

So, the Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel comes at only 80 bucks and that can be your best friend for winter skincare.

If you follow these easy and simple winter skincare processes, then feel free to share your reviews with us!

Have you heard about the new hip place in Delhi? It is The Liberty Village in Champa Gali, Saket. People have been saying that this cool flea market is the new Sarojini Nagar. But, is that true? Has Liberty Village successfully managed to grab a place in the hearts of Delhiites so well that it shares its name with Sarojini?

Liberty Village is an artsy flea market in Champa Gali also referred to as the capital’s best-kept secret. Champa Gali is not a very popular place but those who have visited it, know that it has given Delhi some of the most amazing places to hang out. One such place is Liberty Village.

Liberty Village is located in the corner of Champa gali which is a little difficult to find at first. Once you enter the place, you will start to get a chic vibe from the place. You will not be able to ignore the grunginess of the garage yet you will feel a little gush of happiness.

The first thing you are going to notice after grunginess would be the amazing artwork on the wall. It is colorful, quirky and eye catchy. Apart from making you nostalgic, it gives the place a lively look and enhances your shopping experience. The ambiance of the place makes you feel young and frisky.

The second thing you’ll notice about this is that it is air-conditioned. This really helps, right? Delhi is popular for its extreme weather conditions. The only problem while shopping in Delhi is the heat! Walking into Liberty Village in summers is kind of a relief.

The place also has a co-working place. It has a really cool café where one can sit, chit chat, eat or maybe just read a book. This place has got a really comforting vibe.

Shopping Made Cheaper

Now let’s talk about the main motive of going to Liberty Village, Shopping. Delhi is the fashion capital of India and if it has given a market a special place in its heart then we expect it to be really good. Liberty Village hasn’t failed to fulfill the expectations of the people.

The place has some really good brands at a very low price. The prices start from Rs. 50! Isn’t that cool? The stuff is really good as these are brand rejects. You can expect the quality to be really good but finding your size is a trouble. You also need to watch out for defects and dust on the products.

Liberty Village provides so much in one place. They have fine apparel- shirts, pants, PJs, Skirts, Bralettes, Graphic Tees, Dresses, Body Con Dresses, Maxis & so much more. They even have footwear, stationery, jewelry, accessories, funky shot glasses, mugs, home décor and loads of other cool stuff! Besides that is the type of a place where you get stuff which will make your workstation or study table look like you are one of the cool kids.

The prices go as low as:

A Top at Rs. 150/-

Pjs at Rs. 300/-

A Coffee Mug at Rs. 130/-

Heels at Rs. 400/-

A Body Con Dress at Rs. 500/-

Funky Notebooks at Rs. 130/-

Isn’t that really cheap? Whenever we get really cheap stuff, our main concern is the quality of these products. You can set your expectation level high because these are all brand rejects so the quality of the fabric is really good. All you need to do is look out for your size, dirty pieces and search a bit for the gold.

Is It The New Sarojini?

Is Liberty Village is the new Sarojini? The answer is definitely NO! Liberty Village is not Sarojini Nagar. The apparel quality in liberty village is much better than the quality in Sarojini Nagar.

The prices vary too! Sarojini is much cheaper than Liberty Village. Also, Sarojini Nagar has a great variety to shop from whereas liberty village has fewer options compared to Sarojini.

It is not Sarojini Nagar, it can never be! But it is definitely interesting. Moreover, Delhi always has space in its heart for hip shopping places.

It was opened in 2018 and has become popular within no time, this means it is definitely worth a visit. So, grab your best friend and go to Liberty Village for an amazing Shopping Spree because this place is definitely worth a visit!
