7 Ways to wear Denim this summer

The classic style – Jacket

A denim jacket is a must in everyone’s wardrobe, the design that goes with all kinds of outfits. It never goes out of style. I had invested in one long time ago from Splash fashions and it still is in great condition. If you don’t own one, get one this summer for the colder evenings. I have listed a few of my favorite brands.

Levi’s Denim jacket, Gap Denim Jacket, ASOS oversized Jean Jacket

Dreamy Denim Dress

Well, I have to say, it took me so long to find a perfect denim dress but it was worth the wait. This is how I styled my favorite Denim cami dress from Express. It is currently on sale and is under $40. If this is not your style, here are the other options for you.

Denim Shoes

Denim shoes are everywhere right now in the form of stilettoes, pumps, mules but my favorite are the Denim Slides. I got these from Forever 21 and they are under $20. I love the fringe denim look and they are very comfortable.

Additional options: Forever 21 Denim mules, Mix no. 6 Denim Pumps from DSW, Converse Denim Sneakers from DSW

Denim Shirt

This is also one of denim forms that have been trending for a long time. I found a perfect denim shirt/top from Primark. The fabric is so soft and I like the frilly arms. I can’t find it online but here are the other options:

Target Button-down denim shirt

Denim choker                                                                                                               

This is the simplest denim piece to style. The trend of Choker is still going strong this summer and they can make a part of your wardrobe without breaking your pocket. If they are part of your style, you can choose from the below options. I bought mine from Charming Charlie and it was on sale.

Denim Bag

This trend has been coming strong from 2016 but it is ruling this year. I have found so many options for denim bags and they all look so trendy and casual. I love backpacks because they are perfect for summer and easier to carry around. My cute little backpack is from Forever 21 and you can find it here: Forever 21 Denim Mini Backpack. Here are some of my other recommendations:-

Denim Shorts

These don’t need any explanation! Denim shorts are a must have – right from the High waist, mom Shorts, distressed, low rise – there’s one for everyone. I have so many denim shorts and hands down easiest and coolest summer outfit to style.

Here’s some of my favorite brands:  H&M denim shorts, Urban Outfitters Denim Shorts, American Eagle Denim Shorts

Shein : Online shopping and Honest Review

Recently, I did some shopping from Shein for my birthday. I had seen a lace dress that was out of my budget and I found a similar dress on Shein. I wasn’t sure at first about the purchase but I decided to give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised with their service. I received my items in less than 10 days.

Shein is an online retailer that is based in Asia. They sell inexpensive and trendy clothing and accessories. They have so much variety and if you start adding items in your cart, you cannot stop at one or two. This is not a sponsored post.

I bought the below items and this is how I styled them.

Fit –  I usually wear size “XS” but I ordered size “S” as it was the smallest size they had and measurements were same as “XS”. It fits me perfectly.

Fabric – It is a very delicate lace dress with cut out designs. I felt the gold zipper looked cheap but it’s a small detail compared to the beautiful overall look of the dress.

 

Fit – I ordered size “XS” in this dress and it runs true to size. I comes with same print sash so that you can cinch it from the waist and make a cute bow at the back.

Fabric – Fabric was soft and airy. I love how it feels on the skin, it’s perfect for the summer.

 

Some Do’s and don’ts when you shop at Shein

  • When you like something, make sure you go through the details of the item, especially size. I always avoid an outfit which says “One size”. Make sure you read the measurements for “one size” outfits, if you really want to order them.
  • I ordered these in the US so I added return insurance of $1.99 and they send you the return shipping label for free. It is cheaper and reliable form if you want to return something.
  • If you’re based outside US, make sure you check the custom duty they charge you during checkout. I think it is calculated on the weight of the package.
  • If you review their items online, they do give you points on your purchase that you can use to shop later.

I would definitely be making a purchase from shein again. Thanks for reading my post.

Summer Trends of 2016

A perfect summer day is when the Sun is shining bright, the wind in my hair and my best outfit on. Although, I always seem to get confused with the styles out there; do you? So I present to you my awesome, affordable and trendy ideas that you can rock this summer too.

Trend # 1 Cold Shoulder/Off Shoulder

2016 is all about those shoulders, don’t be afraid to show yours. I bought so many off the shoulder tops/cold shoulder dresses and have so many ideas to style them. I guess I should just a separate post on this trend :P.

Trend #2 Gladiator/Boho

Let your shoes do all the talking and Gladiator Sandals are the way to do it. Gladiators are the hottest trend this season. It can be worn with a pair of shorts, a white slip dress or the way I did it below. I bought my gladiators from Charlotte Russe and paired it with a beautiful off shoulder bohemian dress from Hollister.

Trend # 4 Crop Tops

It’s no secret that crop tops are a huge trend which is still going strong from last year. Opt for high-waist bottoms if you’re shy. Try a full sleeve crop top for little colder weather and rock the look. For a more feminine look, wear a matching bottom with it. There are no rules for wearing crop top, if you don’t want to invest in it, go for an old buttoned up shirt and DIY a crop top and give it a try. Here’s how I styled them :

Trend # 5 Slip Dress

The most comfortable yet Chic is what I call a slip dress. I bought a long slip dress which gives it a look of maxi dress.

Trend # 6 Lace ups/Crochet/Scallops/Little White dress
Lace ups + little White dress equals perfect. I got this dress from Charlotte Russe and it was just so perfect. White Angelic dress along with scalloped detail on the bottom gives it a little edge. It is perfect for a beach day, a Sunday brunch or even for a date night in Summer.

Trend #7 Tie Dye
Tie Dye is back. I remember dyeing my clothes in various patterns & colors with my sisters during summer break in 90s. I see the market is full of Tie dye crop tops, tank tops, skirts, maxi dress and slip dresses. There’s a lot to choose from but here are my ideas of how you can buy a slip dress in tie dye to combine two summer trends and minimalizing your wardrobe. It looks super trendy, breezy and is also pocket friendly.
