Shades Of Blue




As a young girl, I remember my mother dressing me up in a pair of yellow tights and a red velvet+wool sweater. This was (mind you) one of my special outfit worn at a family wedding. As far as I remember its post that I regained gained my fashion sensibilities and quit wearing tights.
That's until last year when I casually picked up these basic black tights to wear at home..and soon they became one of my best friends during winters. I won't dig into how comfortable one feels in tights...I am sure you all must be knowing that already. But I am happy that at this half of the circle my Tights-Fashion-Sensibilities turned for the better!!
P.S. My mom sensed color blocking back then...how cool is she??








Blue is one such color that has never really needed a 'come back' on the runways. In one way or the other its always been fashion's favorite silhouette. The Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collections saw various avatars of blue. From the classic evening wears in one shade of blue to the textured versions and to the basic denims..blue can never not be THE TREND.
Different shades of blue always complement each other perfectly, so don't be afraid to mix the darker hues with the lighter one's. Adding contrasts to blue works wonder in breaking the expanse of color and most importantly shaping and structuring the outfit. I teamed my outfit with the classic, timeless contrast of black and added a bright pop of Orange.

Wearing:

Black Tights - Thrifted
Shirt - Van Heusen
Sweater - Aeropostale (Dad's..remember how I love wearing my Dad's clothes??)
Sleeveless Sweater - Allen Solly
Bag - ASOS
Shoe Earings - Forever 21 (wish you could see them clearly :( )
Elastic Belt - Thrifted (worn here)
Ballerina's - Thrifted (Dubai)


Thank you for stopping by...
Love
Agam
