Style It Thrice: Blue Coloured Jeans

The world of fashion has been rocking the coloured jeans trend for a while now; I finally mustered the courage to buy a pair just a few months ago. It took me some two and a half months more to finally wear them and step out of the house. 
I have to say, the day I wore my pair of coloured jeans for the first time, not only were all my preconceived notions about it broken but I finally realised why everyone is so in love with them.

Now that I have discovered the joy of wearing of coloured jeans, I decided to share it with you and feature in on this week’s ‘Style It Thrice’ segment.

A vast array of colours and styles to choose from, I chose to feature a pair of cobalt blue Vero Moda jeans {Rs. 1,995} from
For starters, the colour is the similar to classic blue jeans and ideal for those who want to try out coloured jeans for the first time.
Plus, the deep hue of the jeans complement almost most body types as well as all Indian skin tones.
Thanks to the richness of the shade, this pair of coloured jeans can be styled and worn for a number of occasions at any time of the day.

Keeping the latest trends as well classic styles in mind, here are few of my cobalt blue coloured jeans styling options.

Casual: Stripes has been a fashion classic for years, but this season it is considered to be an 'It' trend. Working with the cool colour palette,  pair these cobalt blue coloured jeans with a light blue stripe tee and teal hand bag. Add a pair of brown wedges and you are ready for weekend brunch or shopping/movie date for the besties.
To make this a more work friendly look, add a black/navy/brown blazer and swap the wedges with pumps.
FRENCH CONNECTION Tee {Rs. 1,699}, STEVE MADDEN Bag {Rs. 5,499}, RAW HIDE Sandals {Rs. 1,650}, L'OREAL Lipstick {Rs. 785}

The eaisiest way to make coloured jeans work friendly is by pairing them up with a classic black {or white} shirt.
To add pop of colour to this look, accessorise with bright colour bag, shoes and jewellery. Depending on your job profile you can select the accessorise appropriate for your designation.
For those not comfortable with a shirt, opt for a black {or white} mid-thigh length tunic or kurti and accessorises as per your liking.
 UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON Shirt {Rs. 1,599}, ACCESSORIZE Tote {Rs. 4,595}, STEVE MADDEN Ballet Flats {Rs. 2,999}, 
TONIQ Necklace {Rs. 329}, FOSSIL Watch {Rs. 9,995}

Party: Mixing and matching contrasting colours together is one of the quickest ways to make a style statement.
For a fun, night-out, party look go all out and pair the blue coloured jeans with a complementary light orange {coral, actually} lace top, brown studded clutch and gold shoes. 
Accessorising with simple necklace and bangles, the end result is glamorous without being over the top.
 FRENCH CONNECTION Top {Rs. 4,499}, STEVE MADDEN Clutch {Rs. 5,999}, ADRIKA Necklace {Rs. 295}, STEVE MADDEN Shoes {Rs. 3,999}, FLAUNT Bangles {Rs. 299}, MAYBELLINE Lip Gloss {Rs. 350}

Accessorize Me!!!

Anyone who knows me, knows about my unhealthy obsession with accessories. Be it bags, jewellery or shoes- I simply love them all!
Other than never really having any trouble finding them in my size, accessories quickly and cost-effectively transform everyday outfits into stylishly different looks.

When it comes to trendy accessories, no brand does it better than Accessorize.
Every time I enter an Accessorize store, I feel like a child in a chocolate factory or Alice in Wonderland.
From colourful baubles to eye-catching bags and gorgeous trinkets, Accessorize shop is a treasure trove for all accessory lovers.
At my recent store visit, I had a chance to go through the entire Spring-Summer 2013 collection. Thematically influenced by different cultures and concepts, the current collection has something for everyone. 




Since buying it all was next to impossible, I decided to do the second best thing: Create collages of my fave pieces from each collection.
All five collections left a strong impact on me, but the Las Salinas collection is hands-down my fave.

One of the things I have always loved and admired about Accessorize is, while their collections are always on-trend, the pieces are designed in such a way that even after the trend and season is over the pieces never really go out of fashion and can easily be worn at any time of the year.

For more information about the latest collection, check out Accessorize India's Facebook Page
All you online shoppers, rejoice, Accessorize is now available exclusively on

Like me, if you too are an accessory junkie, the lastest collection from Accessorize has your name written on it.

Styled With French Connection

While the heat and humidity outside may drive us nuts, the fashion of the season makes us go heady with happiness. Vibrant colours, eye-catching prints and flirty silhouettes, are some the reasons why this season is such a hit with fashion lovers.
As I walked into the French Connection store to review their Spring-Summer 2013 collection, myriads of bold prints, bright colours and classic summer favourites greeted me.
The colour palette offers everything from delicious neons to delicate pastels. From stripes to florals and from exotic to tribal, there is an array of prints to choose from. The silhouettes and fabrics are comfy and lightweight, ideal for the scorching summer heat.
With a variety of trends and looks to play with, here are few of my styling suggestions.
Look I
If there is one trend that everyone loves at the moment, it is the stripe trend. While many like to pair stripes with other prints, I decided to mix stripes and create a full-fledged stripe-on-stripe look. 
Opting for shades of blue from the cool colour palette, I paired a stylized sailor stripe tee with a broad stripe flared skirt. Add a white clutch and nude sandals and you are ready for a blind date or a weekend brunch with the family.
While mixing stripes can be challenging, it is not impossible to pull-off an all stripe look. Select a stripe pattern that complements your body type and make sure there is one common element that holds the look together.
Look II
Summer is the perfect season to flaunt a white ensemble. 
I instantly fell in love with this classy little white dress. With its delicate texture and simple silhouette this dress can literally be worn at any time of the day for any occasion. 
The LWD paired with a gold clutch, statement watch and white sandals is idea for a business dinner or cocktail party. 
If you are in a mood for a glam look, add a neon statement necklace and printed shoes and watch as heads turn your way!
To make this a work friendly look, trade the gold clutch with a metallic tote; slip on a pair of ballerina flats add a bright colour blazer and effortlessly transform your P.M. look into chic A.M. attire.
Look III
The first thing that caught my eye was a pair of these tribal print trousers. I loved the abstract colourful zig zag pattern. As stunning as these trousers are, styling them can be a tad bit tricky. Especially, if you are looking for a day, work-wear friendly look. 
I decided to pair these statement-making trousers with an elegant high-low hem pastel pink shirt and reddish orange cross body bag. The shirt and the bag balance out the colourful print trousers without overshadowing them. The overall look is eye-catching at the same time sophisticated. One can easily wear this ensemble for weekend meeting or lunch with the besties.
Look IV
We in the fashion world love to mix and match and spice things up!
For my final look, I went all out and paired a bodycon knit dress in neon stripes with a fuchsia bag. 
The fuchsia bag contrast as well as complements the neon stripes dress. Keeping the rest of the look toned down and simple, the end result is glamorous without being over the top. 
Mixing bright and bold colours is not for everyone. However, it is a must try for anyone who likes to experiment with fashion, colours and create striking looks.
What I really loved about French Connection Spring-Summer 2013 collection is its diversity. Most of the pieces from the collection can easily be styled in multiple ways for different occasions.
These looks have been styled by me-Amena Azeez- and modelled by my friend and namesake, Aamna Quraaishi.
