Seeing how denim is like a second skin to all of us it’s just very hard to imagine that at one point in our history it was restricted to waist overalls for workmen and sea-men. Then came the era of Levi Strauss which changed the face of denim and made it to our very favourite ‘Jeans’. By 1950s, the big shots like Elvis Presley and Marlin Brando made jeans an insignia of rock and roll and pop culture.
          As the decades passed on, denim became a wave that swept away the whole world and became associated with the most sought after names in the fashion world. Denim became one of the most experimented fabrics which had a new look almost every day and the best thing about it was that everyone could add a little touch of their own individuality to it, whether it was chains for biker gangs or flower power icons or even just your own name written in ink.
Well, let’s just get back to our own time, you see since the start denim has been for the daring, constantly experimented upon, so why should it be any different this season. This season colours seem to be the ‘in thing’ and so the denims has been coloured. Go beyond the basic blues and blacks in your denims and choose the most bizarre colours of your choice.
True that the favourites have been red and royal blue but you may gallop in any colour you wish. Just throw on basic colour with the denim and be in style. And what I said earlier was true you can individualize it according to your own taste, accessorize it or just plain rip it up in places.  You may have a small flair at the end or an ankle length skinny look or even a knee length paired with a breezy floral top.
The best thing is, there’s no set way to wear the fabric; one may want to use it as pants but a jacket or a dress in the fabric is equally chic. A combination of the age old denim shorts and a denim jacket is an ensemble which remains in fashion no matter what any season says.
So be a dare-denim this season and just let you inner fashionista have some fun experimenting!!!!!

As you all know this summer was desperate to greet us all sooner than we had expected. Now if you are anything like me you are not big fans about summer and we all know that the summer in India is absolutely a killer for skin, looks or even fashion for that matter.  But hey no matter what the climate gives us, a gal’s gotta look her best right. Have no worry we can all be fashionable and yet be breezy.
            Well, as we know black is always a favourite but summer is not the time to go against the sun so, we all get to gallop in different shades of sun. The most favourite shades this season are different levels of nudes (I don’t mean the Birthday Suit), browns and rose. And our favourite fabrics have to be chiffon and georgettes and cotton, ofcourse.
While chics can rock floral cotton prints or the famous American stripes, which are back courtesy the new dive towards the past in our movies, soaps etc, in those awesome short dresses filled with ruffles and pleats. Or if you have those perfect legs you may dazzle the crowd with denim shorts which every girl has, with loose checked or striped shirts with folded sleeves for that devil may care look.
However, the main thing to remember is that let yourself be a part of the nature and be filled with the colours of sun.
