Summer Lookbook : Basic Casual Outfits

June 18, 2017

Even though I never miss any opportunity to rant about how much I hate summer in Kolkata, if we look at the "brighter" side, it is actually the best time to show the fun side of your personality. You can play with bright colours, quirky prints, sunglasses of all kinds, easy breezy apparels and literally everything off the shoulder.

So I did a fun shoot for a summer lookbook with very casual and basic pieces that you can wear to college, brunch, a movie or maybe a coffee date.

Look 1

In this situation, an off shoulder top is a life saver. You automatically look stylish when you wear an OTS top and you don't even have to put any extra effort. So I created a very simple look with an OTS top with black and white vertical stripes and bell sleeves and paired it up with black jeans. I carried a backpack which is a bright pink one and put on a multi-coloured pom pom choker which add a pop of colour to the otherwise plain outfit. I finished the look with a pair of black shades and white kitten heels.

A simple maxi dress with quirky prints is definitely a wardrobe essential for summer. They are so effortless. You do not have to worry about styling them. The quirky print does the job for you. All you need to do is add a pair of shades, make your hair into a bun, wear a pair of comfy shoes, some colourful earrings and you are good to go. This second look I created is perfect for a brunch or a coffee date with your best friend. It is so comfortable yet so stylish. I am totally in love with the cloud print.

Look 3

We do not want to look over dressed but then we also do not want to look like we came out straight from our bed, you know in pyjamas. So, I think a simple white spaghetti top with cute water melon print is all you need to look summer ready. I wore the same black jeans and white heels and completed the look with the pom pom choker, a satchel bag in pink and white pastel shades and of course a high ponytail to survive the summer.

Also, if you have noticed, I am wearing a silver ring in all the three looks. This has been gifted by my friend and Youtuber Sinjini. She has an instagram jewellery store @sinjini_s. You should definitely check out her collection and also check out her Youtube channel for some fashion and beauty inspiration.

So, That's all. I hope you enjoyed the post. Do let me know if you want more such lookbooks. I have a lot of ideas but wanted your opinions too. I really like it when you guys send me what you want to read on my blog. It inspires me to work harder so keep them coming.
