Crop tops have seen a major revival.These cute crop tops I don't think  are going out of trend any sooner. Everyone seems to be too comfortable with crop tops.Crop tops in my opinion when styled correctly can be versatile and flattering.I have already styled a cute crop top with a maxi skirt here and also a cropped shirt here.This time I decided to pair it with high rise pleated trousers.To make the look stylish and chic I have added statement accessories and heels.To turn this look into a casual one, one could go sans any heavy jewellery and add flat sandals and a tote.

Sometimes while putting an outfit together selecting a neutral item and later working bold pieces around it is an apt way.When you have a nice bold print, mixing it with a neutral piece helps in maintaining subtleness in the outfit.

I didn't settle for the regular conventional solid, floral or logo crop tops, something bold which would make a statement was what I was looking for.Seldom you come across pieces with Indian ethnic traits which remind you of your roots and yet can be carried so effortlessly in a western look.The striking modern take on these ethnic symbols grabbed my attention.The rich fabric and the vibrant colour make it more appealing. With such crop tops you can go both traditional or western.

You guys already know what a midi rings buff I am.This beautiful statement midi ring is the newest addition to my midi ring stash.

Monsoon Brights

I have this love hate relationship with rains and this year we have been waiting for monsoons with much anticipation.I do love the sweet smell of earth when the first showers hit the ground and also heavy rains but only when I am sitting at home sipping some green tea.Every time it rains I just dread getting out of the house.In monsoons for me there is no such day as a good hair day.It is quite a dilemma on how to arrive anywhere looking presentable.

During monsoons, it is better to be cautious about what outfit, make up and accessories you choose.The emphasis should be more on no fuss comfortable clothing.Adding a dose of rich vibrant colours to otherwise dull day is the way to go.Its best to wear easily drying light fabrics in monsoon.In monsoon again its difficult to wear denims and thats why I picked these light fabric blue pants for this post.Its bright to counter a dull day and the fabric is light and dries easily.Blue and black&white is a classic combination you can never go wrong with it.Monsoons bring dark gloomy days, so to cheer up your mood bring out those bold polka dots, aztec, geometric prints.Now coming to these black heels I have worn these because the look required it otherwise we cannot wear anything other than monsoon friendly footwear.

And as every year I do I am reminding myself not to stay gloomy like the weather but welcome the beautiful rains with a happy and cheerful face and also hopefully enjoy them till they last. 
Keep the above tips in mind dont let the rains be a dampener and hit the monsoons in style.
