How to style a leather jacket, outfit ideas

Time for wearing stylish winter outfits is here.. Yes, its December and it is getting cold. I have all my warm jackets out ready to be a part of my outfits for winters. Winters are incomplete without leather jackets. I really wanted to wear my brown leather jacket that I bought from Zara, Dubai last year.

There is a whole variety out there available in stores and online for leather jackets but its very important to buy the one that fits well and surely does not look a wrong size on you; genuine leather fits well and is very light and comfortable upon wearing if it is the right size. I know Zara sells genuine leather (I do not encourage animal cruelty by any means). A leather jacket can make or break your overall look. Avoid buying cheap jackets with odd colours. They not only look inexpensive but also the material that they are made from is hard and not so comfortable. Pick jackets that look similar to the shades of genuine leather like brown, tan, camel colour etc. Even if its faux leather, buy good quality that gives the feel of real leather.

Leather jackets are imagined to give a rocker or biker look but it can be made into a fun and chic attire instead. The best way I like to dress my leather jackets is by keeping my outfit simple and casual. I paired my brown leather jacket with plain black leggings and matching brown shimmery loafers to add that little spice to my overall look. I chose to wear MAC Ruby Woo to quickly brighten up my face with a sleek high ponytail for that edgy look. A high bun will also look great while teaming leather jackets in an outfit.

LookBook ~ Red & Blue Lehenga Outfit

“Fashion fades, Style is eternal.”

Exactly my point when I teamed in this Royal Blue & Red Lehenga outfit for my friend’s ring ceremony. Elegant, sophisticated lehenga outfit is a timeless classic. I am soooo in love with this shade of blue; it speaks elegance and class out loud. …and to your surprise this outfit was customized by myself.

Many of you might know that Velvet is the latest trend this winter 2016. I incorporated this look with minimalist ethnic jewelery to add that royal Rajasthani touch to the whole outfit. This lehenga was basically a lehenga sari which I got separated. I got the top custom made with golden lace on its wrist.  This is the same gold studded clutch that I wore in my Ethic Red Gown outfit look. I added a bindi to give an extra feminine touch to the overall look.

LookBook ~ Red Ethnic Gown

“There is a shade of Red for every woman.”

As the saying goes… Red is one of the most loved colour by most women. Red roses, a red lipstick or those fierce nails, we love everything red.. don’t we? So guys, I am wearing a Red gown today. The red I chose here is a brick RED; this is a gorgeous colour and a subtle form of red inclining towards the cooler tone.

It is bold, confident and an in your face colour that I love to incorporate in my looks every now and then. This time I went ahead with everything Red with a hint of gold. I picked up this red ethnic gown for the wedding season. The latest season is very experimental when it comes to decide ethnic wear. Typical lehengas aren’t the only option as they used to be. Ethnic gowns are the latest in the fashion industry and mainly popularised by Sabyasachi Mukherjee. His collection has a lot of ethnic gowns and cape dresses with a heavy skirt inside giving a look of an ethnic gown.

My gown is basically a two two piece dress with a heavy layered skirt underneath and a slit at the back cape kind of layer on top. I love how beautifully the gold motifs sit on the net fabric and the gold lace accentuates the look. Such gowns elongates the body frame and make you look tall and thin. I added gold earrings along with a golden clutch to add the perfect detailing to the outfit.

My inspiration for this look was Deepika Padukone. She who wore a similar golden colour gown by designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee for one of the award functions.
