I was in the Fashion capital of India when my website developer called up to inform me that my blog was ready to go LIVE! I pulled out my checklist and ticked off another box on it and then straightaway headed to the DLF Promenade to shop for my first “Outfit” post. It had to be special after all. As I made my way to the mall, stepping closer to my goal, I looked at my Bff who was walking with me, then I thought to myself, she is one of the most well dressed people around and what would be better than posing with my bestie?

When the developer called, we were discussing the trends of this season! Midst the discussion of new patterns and trends we realized how appropriate it would be to share the same knowledge with all of you. So we decided to do our top two favorite trends of Spring-Summer 2014.
The first, for both of us really, is the Boyfriend Jeans. Its time to give your dark wash skinny denims a miss this season, put it back on the top shelf. A pair of boyfriend jeans is the to-go item in your wardrobe. The most versatile piece of the season, to say the least, can take you to places, from day to night. Literally.
So what is a ‘boyfriend jeans’ exactly? Simply put, a pair of worn out jeans, read ripped, looser in appearance and fit, just the kind you would love to borrow from your boyfriend. Skin fit and straight fit boyfriend jeans are other modified versions.
Here, are the two ways (out of many) in which you can wear your pair of distressed denims. This will help you experiment with yours making you more confident in trying out innovative ways.
Look 1: If you think wearing ripped jean is oh-so-masculine, try the trend by pairing it with a denim jacket for denim-on-denim (my favorite) look. A dressy-formal shirt inside will help you slip from day-into-night with total ease. Keep accessories minimal, carry your favorite tote, and put your best foot forward. Voila!
Look 2: If you are little more daring and love experimenting, wear your highly distressed jeans with a black camisole, a loose Shirt tied around the waist (or wear it front open). Accentuate it with gold accessories, a box clutch and strappy sandals, to reveal the boy-meets-girl side of you.
PS: Don’t forget to roll up your jeans in any case; showing off that slim ankle will balance out the over-sized denim silhouette.
So how would you like to blend in the trend? Send us a picture of you in it! We would love to see your take on ‘Boyfriend Jeans’. Don’t forget to drop in your mail address to know our second favorite trend of the season. Trust me, its going to be worth it- whether u like it this way or that way! *winks*
