Denim Lookbook

Fashion

In 1969 a writer for American Fabrics magazine declared, “Denim is one of the world’s oldest fabrics, yet it remains eternally young”. About 200 years ago, denim started out as a uniform for American workers.

I believe denim is one of the most versatile and durable fabric. Today we see denim jeans, skirts, shirts, dresses, jumpsuits, bags, shoes, etc. I have seen a lot of celebrities carry simple denim look with extreme class.

Denim is all about looking stylist yet being comfortable, and therefore, may be “being comfortable” took the major part in my head whenever I thought about denims. Unknowingly, with the time, I developed this misconception that denim is all about regular days. I stopped believing that I can pull off a denim outfit in a fancy gathering. Where as the other day when I was rearranging my wardrobe, I realised that I own too many denims for a simple Data Analyst, therefore then I challenged myself to get my fashionista soul out and create some not-so-casual looks using my current wardrobe collection, and I did complete that challenge and filmed it. I created 6 not-so-casual denim outfits and did my own video and photoshoot by putting my camera on timer, which resulted in my first ever fashion video on my Youtube channel, Farhein Akmal.

To check out my video on denim click here and don’t forget to share your favorite outfit out of those 6 outfits. 😀

I then held a denim week where a lot of people showed their participation by wearing denim in that week, some of them uploaded their pictures on Instagram with #FariBlogDenim and tagged me. (You can check out all the pictures from the #FariBlogDenim on my highlights album of Instagram).

While I was posting my everyday-denim-look on my Instagram stories, I also created a poll of my not-so-casual denim look v/s my day-to-day denim look, and I was surprised to see the results..

Everyone from my instafam loved my day-to-day denim look more. By the third day of the Denim Week, I was laughing on how my everyday look which I hardly give any thought upon are winning the poll with the outfits on which I gave time to create and that is to not by a close competition but by 70-30 (hahaha).

This made me put a stamp on the thought that denim is all about being simple, casual, comfy and not being too challenging. 😛

 

And and and…..ever though the denim week has ended, still you can share your denim look with me by adding #FariBlogDenim to your picture’s caption on Instagram.

To give you little motivation towards #FariBlogDenim, I have a picture to share…

Black Dress

Fashion

Styling and Photography By Farhein Akmal

Hello Pretty World,

“When in doubt, wear BLACK!”
You may still go wrong with wearing red, but you will never go wrong with wearing black.

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy—but mysterious. But above all, black says this: I don’t bother you—don’t bother me.”
says Yohji Yamamoto.

Whether it’s a sexy little black dress or a sophisticated black evening gown,  the concept of the black dress is that it will never go out of style. Totally chic and timeless.

In today’s post we will see how Isha Virmani carries the most elegant and sexy long black dress I have seen till date.

 

This ELLE Black Long Dress can take many hearts away. The soft fabric of this long dress will make you feel as if it’s meant for you and only you. Like you belong in there.

But most of the credit for the whole look goes to those absolutely stunning accessories. Come on, I know you want that black block Aldo ring.
Those black golden Aldo earrings, golden handcuff and golden wired neck-piece is adding a lot to the elegance.
Since it was all black and little golden, I decided to add little burgundy to it, through lipstick and Zara heels.

Black is all about the way you mix it up.

See you soon, till then – SHINE LIKE A DIAMOND, GLITTER LIKE GOLD.

Romper

Fashion

Styling and Photography By Farhein Akmal

Hello Beautiful People,

Today, let’s talk Rompers.

They are the new best-friend for every pretty girl.
It feels so amazing that you can effortlessly create a polished outfit with just one piece.
It gives a playful feel and therefore, it is also known as Playsuits. They are a great alternative for jumpsuits because of their shorter length.
Rompers are comfy and can allow the addition of bold accessories.

Pragati is wearing a denim romper and to an add playful feel she paired it with a bright yellow basic vest top. She accessorized it with rings and wooden bangles. And when there is blue and yellow, let’s include 3rd primary colour i.e. red too! 😉 So, she carried a red-blue sling bag with her outfit. She wore black flat sandals to keep it little simple.

The whole look is so chic and timeless. You put just a one-piece item and you are done!

Indo-Western Gown

Fashion

Hello Beautiful People,

Kaleidoscope fashion events have hosted many shows since 2010, and now for the very first time, they are bringing The Grand Indo Western Bridal Expo and Fashion Show in Auckland on 7th April 2018. We all know how bright and colourful our Indian weddings are, and so are the royalties and traditional rituals. In India, it’s not a just wedding. It’s THE WEDDING!! Traditional wedding ceremony lasts for at least 3-4 days, it’s a festival in itself.

Every time I get an invite to an Indian Wedding,
I almost freak out because of two reasons:
1) Excitement : Colorful Beauiful Lahengas/ Sari/ Gowns; Fooooooddd..so much fooooodd; Pretty Rituals (Each ritual has its own story); And Lights…Decoration..
2) WHAT WILL I WEAR ????

Therefore, in my today’s post, I plan to show you an Indian wedding-wear.

Our another model, Nishtha Ahuja, is flaunting a very elegant and detailed dark blue traditional gown, which is perfect for a wedding function.It has a resham zari work on it. The best part of this gown is the work on the backside…so beautiful. The sleeves are made of a delicate net. Her earrings and hair accessory add so much grace to the outfit.

Leopard Print

Fashion

Styling and Photography By Farhein Akmal

Hello Beautiful People,

Can you guess world’s one of the most classic pattern?
Yep, Its Animal Print!! It is always in style and works on just about everyone.

Some of my friends really get conscience when it comes of an animal print outfit. My advice for them is to Start-Small. If wearing too much animal print scares you, try an animal print accessory to get started.
And once you are in the group, I bet you will never leave.

There is little fine precaution one must take…
If you are going to wear an animal print from head to toe, make sure you stick to one animal print whether a leopard print, cheetah print or zebra print. Avoid huge risk involving experiments.

My all time favorite animal print is Leopard Print.
I believe that it is very neutral, you can always pair it up with a solid color…And you can still rock the show.

Our today’s model is one of those extreme leopard print girls who have a belt, coat, shoes, swimwear, dresses, and what not in leopard print. You just name it, if it comes in leopard print…She owns it!
Introducing Dr Mandira Adhikari Dubey, a doctor by profession and a travel enthusiast.
(Catch her travel blog : DocDivaTraveller)

She is wearing a leopard print Zara Top with an orange colored Globus Skirt. Her earrings and bracelets are also from Zara and Globus respectively. That pretty necklace is from the Philippines and belt is from Promod.
Leopard Print Aldo Bag adds so much to the whole outfit. And if you are craving for those cool sandals, you must visit Ritu Wears soon. 😉

If you are still a bit unsure on this trend, try pairing leopard jeans with a simple black top for a night out. Add a kick-ass pair of heels, glamorous earrings, and red lips to dress the look up.
