How to style maxi dresses for fall/ autumn 2016

Hey everyone! Lets talk about maxi dresses today. All of us love to wear them in the summer time, which is great but i feel they are actually more appropriate for cooler weather with all the fabric to cover you! And all the layering that is possible underneath and over them. I have put together some great ways to wear them this fall/ autumn winter but before that let me talk about eShakti the brand this maxi dress is from. 

Shakti in Sanskrit means power and the brand truly lives up to that. It gives you the power to customize your clothes to your size and hence liberate from the typical size tag. We all have diff bodies and though we might fit into a standard size its not the perfect fit in all respect, you get what i am trying to say, right! So at eShakti you can customize your clothes to fit your body to the T. Here's how it works- choose a design, give your measurements, customize to your style (neckline, hemline, sleeves, what not..) and then receive your box of joy in 10-14 days as simple as that. I had such a great experience ordering my dress, easy peasy, delivered on time in the exact form as i had imagined, definitely ordering more given they have such a huge selection of styles in prints, solids and self detailed options for any occasion be it formal or casual. Their bridal section is great too and you also have the option to choose from their standard sizes 0-36W, just in case.
eShakti has also given an exclusive 10% dis to all readers of thestyletune valid between 26 aug 2016 - 30 sep 2016, code 'thestyletune'

And here are some ways to style maxi dresses for fall/autumn winter 2016.

  1. the first things to go for before going to layering are a) choosing maxis with thicker fabric and b) choosing warm colors and shades like this one with maroon and black.
  2. wearing warm color footwear is also a great way to wear maxis right now and the trendy block platform style as worn here is perfect to prevent the dress from skimming the floor as well balanced enough for both day or night wear.
  3. add interesting accessories like a choker or do your hair in a fun hairdo to look fresh for 2016.
  4. wear your pants/ jeans/ tights or leggings underneath, a huge trend for this year is to wear your dresses over trousers, i specially love side slit dresses worn over trousers for this fall/ autumn/ winter.
  5. wear a polo neck top or sweater under to stay chic and warm
  6. wear the breezy boho dresses with leather jackets to make them edgy, fun details to try for this year are shearling or fur collars.
  7. velvet boots (going to be sold out) , ankle boots in jacquard, mid calf length sock boots, shoe boots or over the knee boots (majorly discounted) pair beautifully with maxis but two cooler shoe styles for this year are the loafers and sneakers.
  8. longline outer wear looks even more impactful paired with maxis, classic blazers ever so chic and fur vests and jackets look a lot fun and how can we forget the bomber jackets.
  9. bandana and scarves around your neck look interesting and also a great way to do print mixing with your printed maxis.

why a style moto is important

Hey everyone! We either have found our style moto or we are looking for it and if you haven’t thought about it,  you definitely should because it is the moto that helps you buy pieces that you actually will wear. It could be anything form minimal to statement to glamorous to casual to comfortable to anything!! But just finding that will make your wardrobe a very functional one. 
As for me i feel my style moto is to wear clothes that i feel comfortable in, so if i wear clothes i feel comfortable in they automatically feel good and look good. I learnt this the hard way after buying a zillion things that were trendy or looked good on other people but restricted me so no matter how bad i wanted to wear them i dint really wear them and they just hanged in my wardrobe and never saw the light of the day.

Todays dress from THML is one such piece that i feel totally comfortable in from the material to the fit to the length to the print to the colors everything spells comfort. So no matter what i do, be it an outdoor activity or go get a bite or just laze around i always feel good and so look good.

What i wore: Dress- THML, Shoes- Asos, Hat- zara (similar, similar), watch- daniel wellington

A summer piece to take into fall and how to add fall/ autumn vibes right now

Hey everyone! Fall/ Autumn is my absolute fav time of the year. I enjoy my tea more and love finding diff ways to layer outfits, somehow i feel if u love styling u will love fall because there is so much more to do. 

My fav top 6 fall/autumn trends for 2016 and how to wear them right now:

1) Dark Lips- The first thing i do to add fall/ autumn vibes to any look is wearing dark lips. It changes the outfit instantly. As you can see in todays look. Wearing and similar 

2) Peep toe booties- Shoes are great to begin seasonal changes into your wardrobe and peep toe booties are perfect for this weather can be worn with summer dresses, skirts, shorts or just about anything.

3) Slip dresses- They are so good for layering, wear them over shirts or plain Ts or turtle neck tops.

4) Bomber jacket- Try the lightweight embroidered ones,  metallic ones or velvet ones. So you can rock two trends in one! They only give the look and wouldn't make you hot.

5) Metallic- Metallic shoes are always a great way to try this trend but i am specially loving metallic cami tops and pleated trousers or skirts for this year.

6) Velvet- The easiest way to add lux to any outfit. Velvet skirts in shorter lengths are great for right now  and the big trend is the velvet sock boot and ankle boots and a surprise trend velvet leggings.

What i wore- TopSkirt-( asos similar), shoes- (similarsimilar) Lips

I just can't have enough of this mesh cutout top from 0 degrees celsius. Super versatile, looks great worn casually with shorts or ripped jeans as it does here in a formal contemporary look.  And white is always in fashion all year round so ill def get a lot of use out of it in the winter time as well. I love pieces that can be combined in dif ways to create dif looks and that is why i love 0 degrees celsius. Its for the contemporary modern women of today who definitely wants to maximize her wardrobe by creating multiple outfits from a single piece.
