Sleeveless Coats trending this Winter!

We have been wearing sleeveless jackets for ages. But sleeveless coats? Coats are meant to be cozy and snug, with sleeves all the way up to your palms. Those are one big investment in winters as they make you look fitting for the season as well as smart. But ever thought how would these coats look without sleeves? Definitely, amusing! Some of the labels in fashion like Victoria Beckham, Celine, Dior etc. have incorporated this element into their lines this winter. As much as outlandish it may sound, but these coats do look uber chic. For pleasant weather, these could be worn directly over a trouser or skirt. For cities where the temperature goes down steeply, these could be complemented with full-sleeves turtle necks or sweaters. Here are a few of my favorite picks...

All that Glitters is what you should wear for this Festive season!

For this festive season, have on something that glitters or has that shimmering effect on its surface. Sparkling gold tones will accentuate the festive mood in you and you would definitely stand out in the crowd. I have been looking through collections from various designers and what is interesting is that they have not only used gold for that shimmering look but also pastels, darker and muted shades. With embellishments in the form of sequins, cut beads and rhinestones, the outfit looks equally glamorous.

Reminiscing Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta died yesterday at the age of 82 after battling long with cancer. It's a great loss to the fashion industry, as he was amongst the finest of the designers of this century. Originally from Dominican Republic, De la Renta has worked at great fashion houses namely, Balenciaga, Lanvin, Dior, and Elizabeth Arden. His designs have been a favorite on the red carpet, of Hollywood A-listers, the Royalties and first ladies. He truly knew how to make a woman look beautiful. Some of my favorite designs from the collections he had showcased over the seasons are below.
