What truly sets this season apart are the beautiful hues that imbue our lives with happiness and joy. To begin with, there’s the eternal white, pristine and pure, in a league of its own. This hue, or lack thereof, symbolises all that’s good and sacred.
With a spring in your step, you go to work, as the scarf has given your mood a much-needed boost of confidence and happiness; everyone compliments how fresh and sophisticated you look!
Jewellery for the body is perhaps our most ostentatious, obvious way of showing our love and gratitude towards our bodies! A slinky chain around the waist, an armlet on the upper arm aren’t modern style statements, but have been worn by men and women since ancient times.
The fact that there is no limit to the ways a black dress can be styled is a fact universally acknowledged.
Wherever your eyes rest these days, chances are there’s a profusion of all things Barbie — pink, pink and some more glitter! Barbiecore, an aesthetic where one embraces pink in all its glory, especially the shades largely associated with the most famous doll ever created, Barbie. Don’t mistakenly consider this as your daughter’s obsession with Barbie accoutrements.
The inglorious Bangladeshi summer is here with a drumroll, or rather, heatwaves! Call it what you will, but summers do allow us a lot of liberty in terms of fashion. One can experiment with sleeves, cuts, colours and most importantly, silhouettes. Sundresses are an eternal favourite for summer. Easy, breezy and beautiful — what’s not to like? In fact, a survey had proven that women wearing sundresses exude more confidence and appear chic and pulled together.
While ombre hair and hefty extensions are the order of the day, there used to be a time when hairstyles were considered artistic. In the ‘20s and ‘30s stylish flapper girls and fashionistas favoured bold but sculpted styles. It was the age of great change, women could vote and were slowly gaining independence, so they did not shy away from embracing new styles.
Curls have long been touted as a statement of sorts. When a woman refuses to fall into pre-existing tropes of Western beauty standards and flaunts her curls in their natural glory, she may come across as somewhat rebellious; someone who does not and will not squeeze herself thin into society’s narrow definitions of beauty. Her curls, strong and gravity-defying, is a reflection of her own self that refuses to be contained into rigid notions of femininity.
