My latest fashion fixation is comfort with style. Now that I am nearing 50, I want to be super comfortable and stylish at the same time, without looking weird. I have lately started travelling a lot. So, the endless airports and the long exploration walks in a new city does take a toll on my feet. So, I am trying to wear sneakers with most of my outfits.
Here are some of the ways you can wear sneakers with almost everything.
WITH DENIMS AND PANTS.
WITH DRESSES AND LONG SKIRTS
WITH MAXI DRESSES
The key is to be confident and carry the look with style.
P.S. All pictures are from google images.
Hi there! It is that time of the year again when the chill sets in. Now I am a great lover of a longish silhouette. But in winters you need to keep warm also. So how do I pair my dresses with pants?
This was a look for the youngsters.
For my age here it is…
Pairing dresses with tights is also a smart option. Try and go for shoes in the same color as the pant or you can wear nude shoes too.
The safest option is to wear black pants or leggings with black boots. This gives an impression of length.
Add a scarf for warmth.
The best part of this look is that it hides flab and is super comfy.
I hope to rock this look this winter.
My last blog ended abruptly on a a matter of great importance, Sorry folks for that. But since then I have been thinking about the importance of length of your upper and lower separates in defining how you look.
What I mean by this is that even if you maybe able to carry any look with ease but their are certain clothes which need length to make them look elegant, especially for women my age (30 plus). So a longer dress slightly below knees),longer kurta, maxi dresses ,sarees all will make ..you make slimmer and taller.

So as you can see that Kim looks more slim and slender in the first picture than in the second even so she is sexy in any avatar. It just shows that what the length of your dress does to your silhouette.
Above is an example of changing profiles with changing lengths of your dress. Juhi looks definitely more elegant in the first picture.
As you can see a longer silhouette does make you look slimmer. But that does not mean that short dresses are out. Of course one can wear anything so long you have the confidence to carry it. For shorter dresses the fabric of the dress matters. Again a fine flowy fabric is a better choice than thick frumpy fabrics for shorter dresses.
So dearies short is not always sweet. Use your commonsense and a complete understanding of your body to decide what looks good on you.
