Hola Sugarcups! The month is about to end and I just couldn’t get enough of white this summer. And I’m completely obsessed about this season’s girliest trend – RUFFLES. Ruffle dresses are the new-season LBD for sure! I think there is nothing more cooler and chicer way than a figure flattering white ruffle dress to wear this season. Having spend…Continue reading

Hola Sugarcups! While on our never-ending journey for a healthy and a happy hair, we’ve been spending way too much on hair care products and hair spa appointments. Because I know that the struggle is real; I can truly understand and relate it when we have our makeup and outfit on point but the baby hair or the frizzy hair…Continue reading
Hola Sugarcups! Mercifully, the mercury level is going low a bit, making this place a reasonably sun-kissed with around 30 degree Celsius (*phew!). Today’s post is something that was on my mind since quite a while and then this one fine day, I went all for it with a fellow blogger and my brother-in-law Rutvik Majmudar and Jhansi Soni. Lee…Continue reading

You’ve probably spotted this super cool trend from street-style fashionistas to international fashion runways and from the house of grandiose fashion designers.

Hola Sugarcups! Whether you agree with me or not, we regret heaping that lehenga which we once thought of donning for that special occasion. Barely once or twice you have worn that piece and now it has become bland or boring. My today’s post is a parable of Indian and British trend – FUSION wear. Its time to bring the…Continue reading
There is just so much about India that you can’t stop falling in love with. With a multitude of traditions, each season has a story to tell. Summer springs in and in my today’s post I’m going to emphasis on one of this season’s chicest trend – Ethnic Jackets. Summer ethnic has always been a saga for fashion designers. With pastel colors and sunshine bright colors, we’ve seen a much globally ethnic demarcation this year. The ‘ethnic jacket’ is one such perky trend. We’ve seen and prized the ethnic jacket since last two seasons, but this time there is a secret story to unfold.
Vivid colors, gorgeous embroideries, eccentric patchwork and embellishment is what we grasp this Summer. The long-line ethnic jackets come in assorted fabrics; semi-cotton jacket, fabric net jacket and georgette jackets. You don’t really need to invest in a new ethnic jacket if you are comfortable with basic cutting and sewing. I saved on this beautiful ice-blue net ethnic jacket by DIY-ing it from an old anarkali dress. There is this thing about ethnic jackets that they can be styled with anything! By anything I mean – you can shrug it over a basic top and pant to create an indo-western look or you can go for a bff’s-wedding-appropriate-look by wearing it under an embellished bustier top and lehenga.
In my look one, I’m wearing my ice-blue net ethnic jacket with a black turtle-neck top and navy-blue denim jeans. For me, layering has to be something that add up the quirk quotient and I really don’t see any way other than teaming this pretty pastel net jacket with my casual for a more Summer chic look. I choose to keep my hair open and go with just a foundation and lipstick. You can do go a step further and do a beautiful hair-do too! For my second look which is a not-so-basic and a perfect bridesmaid outfit inspiration, I wore this lovely blue ethnic jacket with a nude bustier top and blue lehenga.
Let me know what do you think of this super summer trend and how you will be going to style it. I’d love to see what you come up with! Follow me on Instagram (rawandtoasted) and Twitter (@rawandtoasted) for fashion, lifestyle and homestyle ideas and inspiration.
