A For A-line Skirts

Play to the season’s retro inspiration with an impossibly figure-pleasing silhouette—the A-line. From skirts to dresses, mini to midi, it’s the chicest way to invest in the Swinging Sixties effect.

 

B For Boohoo

Step ahead of the trends with Manchester’s best kept fashion secret, Boohoo. With its cutting-edge designs and affordable price tag, you’ll wonder how your wardrobe ever coped without it.

 

C For Chop Chop

The only haircut reference you need to be wielding next time you visit the salon? The chop. From Khloe Kardashian to Taylor Swift, Adele to Nicole Richie, these women are giving us serious hair envy.

 

D For Do Denim

Chic and super-wearable, there’s a reason why we all love the denim. Whether for off-duty, cool night outs or relaxed office days, there are plenty of ways to wear fashion’s favourite fabric.

 

E For Eating Healthy

“No sugar in my latte please! eats a whole bar of chocolate”…No, we are not asking you to go on a diet, we are just asking you to eat real food. With enough food bloggers lending us serious inspiration, we are seriously considering those smashed avocados, peanut butter smoothie in soymilk, and that chia-seed pudding covered in nuts and dried fruits.

 

F for Flower Power

Flowers are always a firm fixture at the springtime shows, but this time it’s all about oversized petals in bold hues and exaggerated shapes. Take your pick—from buds on a bracelet to blooms on a brooch.

 

G For GPS enabled shopping

Wouldn’t it be great if you could shop the dress that you just double-tapped on your Instagram? Well, now you can. Check out LIKEtoKNOW.IT, our new-favourite app to shop the products we ‘like’(d) on our Insta. You’re welcome.

 

H For Holi

We know there’s still a month left but we can’t help getting excited for our favourite Indian festival, a.k.a, Holi. This time though, we suggest you step away from the cliché of wearing all-white and embrace VIBGYOR hues in all their glory.

 

I For InBetweeners

Bridge the gap between seasons with fashion’s favourite trans-seasonal piece–culottes! Despite their tricky reputation, they are not the scary fashion risk they’re made out to be. 

 

J For Joining The Gym

Last year Kayla Itsines was the big Insta-fitness star. Now it’s the turn of model and fitness pro Hannah Saul…33,000 followers and counting—swapping beaches and bikinis for fitness with her new app HanXFit, this Australian sensation is inspiring us to get fit.

 

K For Kardashian

No prizes for guessing this one! The whole Kardashian clan is perpetually in the news for either launching a new brand or breaking up with their boyfys! Besides the drama, it’s Kim Kardashian’s style and impeccable makeup we can’t get enough of!

 

L For London Calling

We don’t ever need a reason to visit London, do we? Besides being the capital of cool, this European destination has a lot to offer! From musical music to sightseeing, shopping to eating, London's got the best of all.


 

M For Minimal Makeup

Ladies, put down that contour kit now! 2016 is all about minimal products, used minimally. Take your inspiration from backstage beauty at Chloe, Michael Kors, Rodarte amongst others…

 

N for Netflix

Can’t seem to get enough of your Telly? Here’s good news! Netflix has finally come to India and we guarantee to make a strong case for binging, and chilling!

 

O For OTT

Fashion’s most OTT decade is back in a big way. Throwback with over-the-top accessories that were definitely acceptable in the 80s! This Zap cross-body bag from Skinny Dip is all we can think of…

 

P For Pretty Little Details…
Escape to a poetic world of pastels and ruffles, silk and chiffon, in this season’s romantic mood. Go for a deliciously frivolous look with this KOOVS double-layer waterfall blouse. It’s equal parts chic and sophisticated.

 

Q For Quay Australia

Want to get mistaken for the coolest celebrity in Hollywood? From oversized aviators to quirky cat-eyed, Quay Australia’s statement sunglasses are coming to our rescue this summer.

 

R For Romantic Ruffles
Last season’s structured ruffles have been kicked to the kerb in favour of feminine flounces and frills—and we are totally smitten. Offset the fluid fabric with a statement piece—think jewellery or a bold belt.

 

S For Summer-ready Nails

If the Spring Summer 2016 beauty trends are anything to go by, then perfectly manicured nails are the most overwhelming. From precious metals and French tips to bright and bold colours, we love the season’s nail vibe. 

 

T For Tea Time

Whether it’s darting in out of the rain or escaping the shopping crowds, there’s nothing quite like an afternoon tea. Our recommendation for the perfect hot brew include Au Bon Pain, Cha Bar, and The Tea Place by Manjushree.

 

U For Understated Style

This season is all about a subtle approach for pared-back sophistication. What you need is a closet that you cherish and the clothes that allow you to feel at ease with yourself. Keep it simple, and chic.

 

V For Virtual Star

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few years, you’ll recognise that face. As one of the most famous bloggers right now, Leandra Medine of Man repeller is on our top list for her incredibly outrageous style and idiosyncratic wit.

 

W For Watches

From ladylike wrapovers to boy-meets-girl leather (and not forgetting the ever-popular metallics) this season’s watches cater for all style personalities. Here’s how to step in time. 

 

X For ‘X’ Factor

This season, step outside of your comfort zone with notice-me-now accessories. We are coveting Chloe’s take on outstanding shoes. This is where no heel is too high and no detail is too decadent.

 

Y For Yesteryear Inspiration

Fashion’s favourite decade is back in full swing (literally), reverberating with all things sixties. And we are drawing our inspiration from the boyish pixie, long-lashed eyes, Twiggy!

 

Z For Zen Out

Winter is almost over! Get recharged for a brand new season with the top spas the city has to offer. We highly recommend the Wildflower Hall Spa, Shimla; Kaya Kalp, Agra; and the Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur.
