Indian prints, all in India and abroad will agree, are truly aesthetic and delight to the eye. There is a different pride in wearing them and flaunting them. In this post, with immense pride, I take the pleasure of introducing and reintroducing to the readers the prints that rock our outfits.

All of these are conceived from the hard work and fine craftsmanship. Many hands work tirelessly to promote local industries and the Indian craft. The wide variety of these prints ranges. For instance, abstract prints, floral prints, geometrical shapes to animal designs.

Bandhani

The famous bandhani prints are one of the most well known Indian prints. They are a colorful gift from the colorful state of Gujarat. The beautiful word, Bandhani, finds its roots in the Sanskrit word ‘bandha’ which means ‘to tie’. The colorful textile is alive around from the time of Indus Valley Civilization. Above all, the cloth is called Bandhani because it is decorated by plucking the cloth in a particular way by a fingernail. It is done in such a way that we get many bindings that form a design.  It is typical characteristic are dots, stripes, waves or squares.

Patola

In addition to Bandhani, another of the famous Indian Prints that is a gift by the state of Gujarat. One finds these designs on cotton, silk or on blends. It is a double Ikat weave. The making of a Patola is a tiring and skilful process. Each thread separately goes under the process of dying and weaving by hand to acquire the desired design.

WHO DO I DESIGN FOR? When I design I always have an image in head. I see independent women who are sure of themselves and very comfortable with their body. I see someone who is not bothered about trends or follows celebrities or magazines to decide what becomes a part of their wardrobe. I visualise women who are fierce but at the same time very feminine, I see women who are confident and unaffected with opinions people may have of them . I see someone who has a soul, someone who is not scared to tell their story. I see women who know how to have a good time and laugh loudly without worrying about how their pictures will come out. When I design I see my aunts and mum having fun at a wedding, I see you. I see love. Is there a bit of them in you? ❤️ #sarees,#saris,#indianclothes,#womenwear, #anarkalis, #lengha, #ethnicwear, #fashion, #ayushkejriwal,#Bollywood, #vogue, #indiandesigners ,#handmade, #designerayushkejriwal , #ayushkejriwalpatolas , #desibride, #bollywoodfashion, #style ,#indianbeauty, #patolasarees , #instafashion, #lakmefashionweek, #indiancouture, #londonshopping, #bridal, #kalamkari ,#madeinindia ,#weddingideas,#ajhrakh,#handloom

7 Reasons Why Men Should Embrace Pink

Published

pink

 

Pink and blue weren’t originally gender-specific colors in the earlier times. The color has caused major stigma around the specificity of gender. But the real question is who defined it to be girly? Also who said that men should not wear the color? We are in the 21st century. A major change has to bought about this. We give some major reasons why more men should embrace the color.

1. Pink Used To Be Masculine 

Via The independent

History tells us that pink wasn’t always a feminine color. Men were known to wear silk suits that had floral embroideries. Those outfits were considered very masculine at that time. History also mentions how the color was considered a warlike color since it was resembling red. This fashion and way of thinking got lost as society changed over time. The early 1900s saw the very first pink dress shirt. It become a hit. It was initially meant to target female students but it caught on more with college guys.

 

2. Don’t Follow The Society’s Norms

Via mankind

If there’s anyone to blame for making it a girly color, it’s the clothing businesses. They made that decision before most of us were even born. Parents started to know a child’s sex from an earlier age. So companies capitalized on this and introduced gender-specific clothing. This would mean that parents could no longer hand down a baby girl’s clothes to a baby boy and vice versa. They’d have to buy a second set. So the tradition of pink is for girls and blue is for boys began.

 

3. Pink Catches Women’s Attention

We know women adore pink. It appears they’ve always loved it even when it was considered masculine. But did you know our biology can sort of explain why? A recent study reveals that the color of girls clothing and toys might’ve been caused by innate bilogical preferences. Among people who like the color blue, women lean towards reddish-purple hues of blue while men prefer greenish-yellow ones. So you want to attract a woman by wearing the color.

 

4. You Stand Out From Crowd

Pink has been used to represent power. Ribbons were given to those who ran in the New York survivor race in 1991. A year later, the same kind of ribbon became the official symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It was said other events throughout the ‘90s and 2000s brought out a fierce character to the color. So you actually portray a very powerful image in the color. Be a different person and set your own path.

 

5. It Goes Well With Most Colors

It is a versatile color. The fact is any skin tone works with some shades of it. Men with darker complexions look good in lighter shades such as barbie, cherry blossom and lavender. Meanwhile guys on the fair side can go with deeper shades like purple rose and hot pink. Choosing a right shade of the color is essential as it could either build or break the entire attire. Aside from picking the right shade, wearing it requires steely self-esteem.

 

6. Pink Works Well For Formals

Pink makes a great addition to outfits that have brown, khaki, monochrome or dark shades of blue. That’s why it’s appropriate for both formal and casual styles. If you’re more not comfortable, experiment with smaller, subtle pieces that are worn away from the skin such as a pocket square or a pair of pink socks. Another easy option for injecting some personality into formal attire is a pink tie. It is a sure way to up your game.

 

7. Casuals Are Fun Too

Pink is also a romantic color. It’s a blend of red and white which combines passion with purity. So it’s no surprise that many weddings incorporate pink neckties for the groom and groomsmen. Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to be out wearing pink. The sun makes it pop out some more and you feel great in it. Try pairing a pink polo shirt with blue jeans, or a pink Oxford shirt with white chinos. These combos allow the color to stand out and give off that warm, youthful vibe.

 

So wear pink with pride. Let’s save this color from the stigma that came out of business greed. When it’s worn the right way pink makes any good style an awesome one. Also read- 5 Must Own Jeans For Every Woman

Skinny jeans, as the name suggests, are skin-hugging and fit you snugly. They take the shape of your legs and trace it all along. If you have lean and sexy legs that you cannot wait to flaunt, these are for you. Skinny jeans come in low, mid, and high rise waist cuts, all of which are usually stretchable – which makes them twice as good.

  • Suitable For – Women with an hourglass body shape, who are petite or anyone with slim legs can wear skinny jeans.
  • Avoid – If you have a round or pear-shaped body.

 

2. Skinny Crop

Skinny crop jeans are very similar to the regular skinny jeans, except they end before your shins. Some of them come with a fold that adds to the aesthetic. In terms of the design and technique, there is not much difference between these and the regular skinny jeans. Distressed, white, and black jeans in the skinny crop category are excellent choices.

  • Suitable For – Women with an hourglass body shape, those who are petite or anyone with slim legs can wear skinny or skinny crop jeans.

4. Jeggings

Wear tops that are a little below your hip if you are conscious, but you can treat them just like your super skinny jeans. Most women swear by them because they are incredibly comfortable and come with a waistband instead of the standard buttons system.

  • Suitable For – Suit all body types because they take your shape and fit well. Perfect for pregnant women.
