Fortunately looking like a partial hobo is trending at the moment; making enough room for that old denim and tees that have been gathering dust in our closet. Distressed jeans, sweaters, tees and cardis are currently trending and apparently torn is fashion gold on the streets.

The emphasis is on “on the streets”; which means that this trend is strictly limited to street fashion. Be aware that ideally only one item of clothing is allowed to be torn or ripped to avoid looking like a complete hobo and attracting loose change from people you come across on the street. img

In conclusion; this blogs effectively lists all the current trends with some predictions for the rest of the year. As mentioned before fashion is subject to time so one should ideally check in every few months to see what continues to trend and what ceases to.

Additionally; fashion is also subject to individual body types, personal preferences and personal comfort. One can pick and choose from any of these trends to make them their own or look elsewhere for inspiration. While investing money in trending fashions; don’t forget to buy some classic clothing items that never go out of style to ensure that you are ready to step out of the house in style even if you haven’t been shopping in a while.

Just like clothes, shoes and accessories; makeup is subject to changing trends. Every year and every few months, new makeup trends and tricks find their way into the spotlight. This is definitely welcome as it efficiently breaks the monotony of putting on the same makeup every time you step out of the house.

Changing makeup trends can apply to a complete look or individual areas of the face like nude lips and smoky eyes. Makeup trends are definitely subject to individual preferences which mean that some people may be comfortable with stunning and dramatic makeup while others might prefer something subtle; one way or the other, makeup trends for 2017 and 2018 has enough for both.

The color story is bound to be gelato colors which also happen to be the reigning fashion trend for 2018. Lipgloss in shades of pink and red; ranging from light to darker shades are destined to rule. img

2. Less is More

less in more

Less is definitely more according to the latest makeup trends in India and this will be a reason for relief during the warmer months. 2018 will be the year to let your natural beauty shine through and healthy radiant skin will be valued even more than top of the line baking, strobing or contouring products.

It’s important to note that this doesn’t mean a completely makeup-free look. Minimal makeup will be effectively paired up with bold eyes or scarlet lips and no one is complaining. img

3. Statement Lips

2017 and most of 2018 is the time for statement lips on both pale and darker skin tones. Evening wear will be effectively complemented by statement lips in bold colors with a dash of glitter but common sense will prevail; so you won’t be seeing much of this look during the daytime.

Statement lips will definitely be the trend to make your own for parties and festive events and the emphasis is on contrasting statement lips with understated makeup for the rest of your visage. Less is more applies here too; barring the lips. img

4. Natural Brows

natural brows

Put your tweezers, powders and pencils away for a while as the latest makeup trends in India and around the world is calling for natural and straight; almost boyish brows.

This trend is sure to work just as well in the office where you are expected to tone it down a few notches with makeup and will also have looking in keeping with the times when you are out and about having a good time.

6. Monochromatic


Makeup products that are multi-use can be of great advantage to you according to the latest makeup trends. The idea here is to go for a completely monochromatic look that is stunning and dramatic. As mentioned earlier; dramatic makeup may not work for everyone so the emphasis remains on finding a shade that is best for you.

With this look you can use the same shade of makeup to highlight and contour most of your visage. You can give this look a pass if you wish; as you can go for the largely makeup-free look that is also trending at the moment. img

We have made a conscious effort to put together makeup trends that range from subtle to dramatic; allowing every individual to adopt a trend or trends according to their personal taste.

6 Mistakes that Occur at Weddings

1. Running out of Food

This is probably one of the most obvious and embarrassing things that could ever happen at a wedding – seeing as how many of us attend weddings just for the food! ; D
It’s imperative to make sure that there’s enough food for everyone and you have reliable caterers.

2. No Vegetarian Food

Another food-related mistake that doesn’t occur that often is when a wedding serving non-vegetarian food forgets to serve vegetarian food for their vegetarian guests. This is more uncommon these days, but when it does happen, it means that some of your guests may leave with empty stomachs.

3. Photography Blunders

There are weddings which are beautiful and grand, but the bridal couple and their families get so caught up organising the wedding that they forget to let the photographer know exactly what kind of a result they’re expecting. This is something that cannot be rectified once the wedding is over and you lose your beautiful memories forever.

4. Makeup Blunders

Brides or their family members who end up trying on their bridal makeup for the first time on their wedding day instead of getting a trial done ahead first sometimes end up with rude surprises of unsuitable makeup which cannot even be rectified because of lack of time before the wedding. This can be emotionally traumatic as you might end up looking worse than normal on the day you want to look your best!

5. Losing Important Things

Everyone knows that there is not a more chaotic day than at the wedding. It’s easy to lose or misplace important elements of the wedding ceremony and end up frantically searching for your earrings at the last minute. This can be avoided by putting together a bag of everything you need at least a week before the wedding.

6. Uncoordinated Communication

Communicating with different vendors delivering different things at different places is very trying. If you don’t want to be on 101 phone calls at the same time, the best thing to do would be to allocate different responsibilities to different family members and friends so that one person doesn’t have to juggle everything.

Did you relate to any of the above or have any funny experiences to share? Let us know!
