How to dress up when in TOK-YOOO!!

When you think of street fashion, Tokyo surely has its place. From being dressed up like dolls(literally) to wearing famous anime character overalls to some real funky styling, there is umpteen number of such trends. While one part of the crowd(mostly the younger ones) stick to these street styles, the other part of the crowd mostly dresses according to the seasons. People in Tokyo, take care of every detail to ensure perfection and here are some of the looks. Spring: During spring, the main fashion staples are trench coats and denim jackets. You can pair it with jeans and T-shirt or with a dress. Layering is preferred as it can get cold during the nights and a striped black and white tee comes handy for such layering.  Summer: The look is kept simple, as it can get quite hot during summers.

Gingham Pop- Let the styling begin!

Gingham is one of the biggest trends we saw this year and this is outfit is my take on the trend. Even though we have seen a lot of it in the summer, we are going to see a lot more of it through Fall and Winter and I can’t wait to style it in different ways. This outfit can be your casual brunch look, minimal but on trend and of course cute. I chose to pair a black and white gingham wrap skirt with a graphic white T-Shirt. This added a bit of colour to it. I believe the colour adds to the grace of the outfit, it brightens the mood and lifts the outfit up. The red detailing on the T-shirt gives the right amount of pop to the outfit. The classic monochrome print on the skirt can be dressed up or down as per your liking.  For…

Discovering the essence of Japanese beauty

I have been living in Japan for quite some time and have been admiring the beauty of the Japanese women. They have flawless and radiant skin. Wondering what would be the secret to such even toned skin, I interacted and found out that they use very simple techniques. Japanese food culture is one of the best in the world, as it consists lots of proteins and fibre. They are very important in maintaining the skin quality and the essence of Japanese beauty. Among them, rice water and green tea play a very important role in maintaining skin quality. Rice water: The leftover water after rinsing the rice (preferably Japanese or Basmati rice) is not wasted by the Japanese and is preserved for beauty usage. The rice water can be cooled to ice cubes, which you can gently rub on a freshly washed face using a cloth. This gives you instant…

THE SH!T GAME? OOPS IT’S THE SLIT GAME.

Long slits are so much in trend and styling them is a super confusing task. I’ve created 2 looks with the top which is super versatile and belong to 2 different genres. LOOK 1 This is a very casual yet a dressy a look. I paired my top with this jean and my favourite shoes that go amazing with this outfit. You can also accessorize this with a casual chain or any statement neck piece. But, I like it plain as it is more casual and can be worn to college as well. LOOK 2 This is a completely different look from the first one. It has a pinch of Indo-western look in it. I have paired the long slit top with this very colourful wrap around skirt. To enhance this look I accessorized it using my boho neck piece, a nose ring and these very pretty handcuffs. I…
