Ways To Style Your Crop Top.

 Hello Rickrackers!
 

Are you a 'Clueless' movie fan girl? If you said yes then you'd be happy to know that its most famous trend is back in fashion! It's raining crop tops in every fashion stores to the runways to your favorite style icon's closet. These bare midriff tops are EVERYWHERE!  I also call them the western version of our pretty ghagra-cholis.
Well, I'd agree with a few people who say crop tops are sometimes a little difficult to style so I did something to make your life much more easy by putting together a look book of different ensembles showing new and interesting looks of how you can be sporting this style. 
Before you go ahead and pick a look make sure it reflects the person who you really are and if you're comfortable and confident to wear it. 
(P.s: Don't wear it because it's in trend and everyone is doing it. That's so passé!)

So,Let's begin!

Look 1:
 For the girl,who loves to live on the edge and a little rebellious and says 'I don't care' most of the time!



Look 2:
 For the girl,who loves her sartorial choices and has a taste for street style wear. Wear a slogan tee and let your clothes do the talking!


Look 3:
 For the girl,who loves to flaunt her curves, will jazz up her style with statement accessories and loves to hear compliments.

Look 4:
 For the girl,who isn't shy to show her tomboyish side and wears her boyfriend's t-shirt to work even. Get those old backpack and nerdy glasses out to complete the look.
Ripped jeans are the best to pair for this look.


Look 5:
 For the girl,who loves to nurture her elite and feminine nature with a luxe look ! She is social and loves to explore life.



Look 6:
 For the girl,whose work is her passion in life. From morning coffee to meetings to formal dinner always on the go.She is independent and confident and this reflects in her attitude. (Watch Suits and you'll know what i mean!!)

Look 7:
 For the girl,who loves to  be minimalistic and believes less is more.She is always the centre of attention when she walks into a room.

A Day Out At Inorbit Mall

Hey Rickrackers!
   I hope you lovely people are feeling awesome today. If not, no worries I have something really fun to share with you. Recently, I was invited to participate in an exciting challenge at the Inorbit mall to create a monsoon look for myself (head to toe) by choosing clothes,accessories of my choice across the stores in the mall. It was more fun and interesting as it was timed to an hour and a half.I was very confident and even said "Oh,I will finish before that" but that kinda backfired on me as there was so much to choose from and so little time.

At Accessorize with fellow Blogger Chandana (thegirlatfirstavenue.com)

To top it all this activity was being filmed by the Inorbit crew making me slightly conscious as the camera followed my every move at the mall.
I'll post the video on the blog next (in process). Inorbit Mall is the one of my favorite shopping destinations in Hyderabad with a wide range of stores to choose clothes,accessories,beauty products,books and restaurants to slurp on later. You can easily make a day out of it like I did. 
I had already set my mind before I started to shop for the look on what and how i want the look to be. So I set out looking for something that reflects a girl-next-door kind of look something simple yet chic and comfortable. I tried out a couple of outfits from AND,Vero Moda,Chemistry,Biba,MAX,CODE and more.Finally I had to pin it down to two choices from AND (Anita Dongre retail) and a cut-out Chemistry dress with grey brogues from MAX(great buy!). I chose the latter as it was more easy to go(time restraint issue :/) but I equally loved the AND outfits as well. 
So, there it is..my monsoon look for the event.
Drum roll anybody?



I have to mention that I had a great time with the amazing team at the Inorbit Mall and also meeting fellow bloggers from Hyderabad.
Do share your thoughts about my looks below in the comment section!

Though there are a few pointers to remember when wearing cuffed up denims.
The do's and don'ts.
  • First Do make them look like it rolled up on purpose and not because they are long and you dint have time to alter them.
  • Don't EVER roll up bell bottom denim (that is just hideous to look at!)
  • Wear your favourite pair of heels.This look directly emphasis on your ankle so make sure to flaunt them right.
  • Don't roll up your denims if its cold outside(seasonal trend) or going for a formal meeting.



Thick fold Cuff-Fold the jeans two or three inches above the ankle.Skinny and destroyed jeans are the best pair of jeans for this style.
