#StyledByMosh – Stripes

Wear those stripy clothes with pride!

Yea, I just semi-quoted one of the lines from the best letter ever written to anyone! (It’s from Me Before You, by the way).

Having said that, if you do not know that stripes (be it breton, barcode, pinstripes, candy stripes, shadow stripes or awning ones) have been the hottest trends for the last 4 seasons, then I’d really like to know where you have been living, because that level hermitage is enviable, and sometimes, needed.

I remember the first time I fell in love with stripes was when I was in fashion school, learning about the greatest minds in the business of fashion, and stripes happened to be associated with Coco Chanel first, and then Jean Paul Gaultier and his love for everything nautical!

For my outfits, I sought to create an outfit that would be semi-casual, easy to wear and keep you comfortable all day long. Pairing my stripy top (Zara) with either a pinstripe blazer or woven grey jacket with a pair of jeans (Nuon) and ballet flats (Head Over Heels), my backpack (Zara) filled with my essentials would have me ready to face the day and hustle, even if I have to commute within the city to get to places.

#StyledByMosh – Sunny Yellow

I got a pocketful, pocketful of sunshine!

Nothing drives away the monsoon gloom here in Mumbai like bright yellows, I say!

And what I preach is what I do, so… *gulps*

After a shopping spree at Zara and a dangerously low current bank balance, one of the things that I purchased was this lovely, cozy, oversized t-shirt.

Going for the effortless way to style it, I’m simply wearing jeans (Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren), a pair of sneakers with leather detail (Charles & Keith), a pair of Lennons (Propshop24), with a rad turban headscarf (somewhere in Hill Road, Mumbai) because I need to be hassle-free during this monsoon-y week, and that includes controlling that frizz underneath those wrapped layers of scarf fabric. With it all, I’d love to carry around a cute little bucket sling bag, in tan colour. Balances the denim blues and sunny yellows too well!

Monsoon-Friendly Styling Tips: Do’s & Don’ts

What do I wear under my umbrella… ella… ella… eh… eh… eh…

Happy monsoon errbody!

The cold, the wet, the damp, the perpetual prune-y fingers’ season is here!

No, no. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t HATE monsoons. But I do find the above mentioned things really annoying. I do, however, look forward to the lush green roadsides, thoroughly washed roads, chai pe pakode and then jalebis, and wearing my RAIN BOOTS! It’s the one time I feel super happy: in my squeaky rain boots as I walk through every puddle on the road with a smug face thinking, “HAH! You can’t do shit to my feet, puddle!” Yes. I feel incredibly smug and happy in those times.

But this post ain’t about my monsoon rants… This post is actually aiming to prepare you in braving the dark monsoon clouds and how to triumph over them like a pro-fashionista, in full-on Bahubali swagger, ignoring the clouds that are now looming over all our heads.

Jiyo-Re-Bahubali-2-Video-Gif.gif

That’s right. In this article, I’ll write about a few essentials you must have, how to master layering techniques specifically for rainy season, what fabrics to wear and what fabrics to avoid, what accessories to have and what accessories to stash away for the next few months, some tips if you’re wearing Indian outfits and a few links for supah cool raincoats, parkas, boots, and umbrellas you can buy! Shopping ki bhi season hoti hai kya (Is there a season for shopping)? Kabhi bhi karlo (do it whenever), and especially during sale time!

  • Essentials. Let’s start with the basics, yea?
    1. Raincoat. Duh.
    2. Hair ties / hair bands. Nobody like frizzy hair. Monsoon makes it even worse. So how about some hair ties to keep your hair in place and not allow it to misbehave?
    3. Cotton Scarf. Protect your face and neck from the monsoon winds.
    4. Rain boots (anti-slip). Forget your hole-y crocs. What if your feet gets infected or something with the dirty rain water? Get some boots please.
    5. Umbrella. And twirl it while you walk, please!
    6. Waterproof watch. Keep your phones in your pockets please (unless it’s water resistant like the new iPhone 7. My birthday isn’t here yet but I wouldn’t mind some cool gift yo). Plus, wearing a waterproof watch would be cheaper…
