April फूल!

April फूल! BY PERKY POCKETS

1aec890d-ee55-4374-9298-b0bede7cd162

Hola people! How is everyone beating the crazy summer heat? I have switched over to cotton in my wardrobe, and melons in my diet. It stuns me how cotton, being such a lightweight and a ‘simple’ fabric, can still transcend into a strong outfit with high impact. So, today’s post is all about a floral explosion with PERKY POCKETS where I’ve experimented with fabrics and prints.

Flowers are a beautiful symbol of freshness, grace, and purity and are synonymous with spring.  Floral prints are what I naturally cleave to in all seasons but I can play around with them much more in the spring. 

There are certain trends that are practically reminiscent of summer. Floral prints are eternal, versatile and represent strong femininity, cheerfulness, and effortlessness. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and staying comfortable this summer. Floral prints definitely put me in a good mood! How about you?

I am dressed up in PERKY POCKETS with umbrella overhead, flowers for dresses, and happy smiles for make-up!

These prints are so nice that you don’t really need to accessorize. What do you think?

Yelling Yellow

Color me silly!

Mangoes, ice cream, staying indoors, and rising temperatures are telltale signs that summer is here and yellow as a color certainly adds that much-needed summer announcement to your closet! If there is one essential that needs to be in your wardrobe for summer, it’s the maxi dress. Whenever I have to get ready to head out, the easiest choice for me is to pick out a maxi dress and team it up with some statement jewelry or go one step further and accessorize with a lovely pair of heels. Boom! I’m ready to slay any party with hardly any effort.

Have you spotted this gorgeous color popping up everywhere? I am a sucker for yellow, so here today I am wearing a yummy yellow summer screamer maxi dress. I love how this dress is versatile and can be used for simple days out as well as an occasion that needs dressing up. Moreover, they not only look good but also help stay cool through summer. Keeping the look simple and all eyes on yellow, I paired up this dress with a gold neck-piece, tassels earrings, and flats.

Before I leave for my party, I would like to remind you to decide the length of the dress before you go ahead and buy it. The length of the dress just below the ankle, nearly touching your feet (neither too short nor too long) is dainty, feminine and easy to walk without tripping too. That’s my go-to length. But check your height before you go shopping since long dresses could make short girls look stocky and very tall girls look lanky.

If you’re comfortable and are able to walk without grabbing a handful of the fabric in your hands, you’re all set!

I can’t think of a better festival than Holi to celebrate friendship, family, love, and happiness. Symbolizing spring and the victory of good over evil, Holi has been a family favorite and mine especially for as long as I can remember. The balloons, vibrant hues, food, dance parties and colors have us almost as excited as the opportunity to bring all the pretty dresses out!

I got invited to a Holi party recently and I had just one question – what do I wear? It’s a playful festival so it’s versatile – jeans, shorts, dresses, Indian attire – you can wear anything. I, personally, naturally lean towards white for this festival and that’s what I did this time too. I teamed up my white kurta with a vibrant stole and jeans. 

This year, I had to come up with a stylish way to protect my hair. I made a turban out of a bandana for a chic look and hide my tresses from the harshness this color can have sometimes.

I’m all set now to get messy and play Holi! Wish you and your family the best one you’ve had yet.

Tied and Dyed

PERKY POCKETS

IMG_7559.png

Summer is our favorite season – sunshine, watermelons, butterflies, the opportunity to dress ourselves in cheerful colors and brave cuts – sigh! We’re super excited to dress ourselves and you this season. Light capes, shorts, scarves, long shirts, summer dresses – all make for really cool and stylish outfits and practical too given the intense heat we are expecting this year. Tuck the blacks and greys to the back of your wardrobe and embrace every bright color there is on offer. We’re going to show you just how to style yourself and make heads turn wherever you go.

If you want to start your summer with a fun and flirty vibe, tie-dye is where you should begin! Originally from as early as 1909, the term “tied and dyed” speaks of a resist-dyeing technique that involves tying clothes and letting the dye soak in the fabric. It is vibrant, bright, loud and unapologetic and has made quite the come back this year! It is a versatile print that screams summer and is super cute on the beach, a day out with your girlfriends or even a solo trip that’s long overdue. You can wear just about any color and look cute. Pair it with a simple solid colored top and minimal accessories and you’re good to go. That’s what we love about it. It is low maintenance and can make you look quirky or cute depending on how you accessorize. 
Perky Pockets’ brave color palette includes strong splashes of color, soft pastels and eternally graceful natural tones making our summer pieces the perfect pieces to give you a wardrobe detox. Our new collection is an amalgamation of stylish and playful details such as ruffles, fancy cuffs, flattering cuts, bows and frisky prints with bright colors that will make your eyes sing! Bring in this holi with these bright beautiful skirts and dainty feminine top for example and be the talk of that Holi party at your friends’.

Straight from the weaver’s kalam

Straight from the weaver's kalam

My affection for Indian wear knows no boundaries and you’ll always find me attracted towards it in the slightest of ways; whether it’s teaming up jhumkas with my western outfits or add a desi touch with bindi or mojris. It’s a cultured elegance that certainly boosts the outfit tenfold.

A house of textiles, India has always been known for its culture and crafts. Kalamkari is one such form of craft which includes freehand drawing and block printing on cotton fabrics derived from Persian words. Characteristically named after the technique of its making, ”qalam” denoting pen and ”kari” signifying craftsmanship, Kalamkari has been ubiquitous in numerous parts of Southern India, primarily in Andhra Pradesh. This art makes use of only natural colors or vegetable dyes which makes it unique!

Several Indian fashion designers are using kalamkari recurrently in their fashion week runways; the latest trend that seems to have caught the attention of fashionistas is the Buddha print. Fashion enthusiasts seem to be well-tuned to the fact that the Buddha need not be detained for being a statue in the lounge, but can be fashionably sported on dresses, sarees, jackets, or kurtas too.

I particularly love the way contemporary Indian wear binds traditional silhouettes with edgy styles and that’s exactly what I am wearing from my own label Perky Pockets. This outfit is an amalgamation of trendy style with alluring Indian print and design, sure to turn some heads!

Keeping the look simple and the attention focused on Buddha print, I paired up this dress with silver jhumkas and nude heels.

Perky Pockets offers you outfits using the finest fabrics. We have a lot of striking and amazing clothes, if you like them, wish to customize a dress, top, kurta and more… or just want to get to know them, get in touch with us on Facebook or Instagram.

Perky Pockets‘ new collection is all about funky and playful prints and keeping it quirky with just the right amount of spark. I am a huge fan of kooky prints, playful patterns which add charm to any outfit.
I can say that quirky art defines me and what I love to wear! It was love at first sight when I saw this print. And to me, this kind of sartorial is exactly what describes my personality. I like to be fun, fearless in my style and stand out from the crowd.
You can add kitsch, to your simple or regular outfits. It might be a frisky print, lively hues, or completely a different pattern and turn them into exclusive attires and look charming!
So, if you’re looking for kooky outfits and want to stand out, Perky Pockets is the best place to shop.
To keep it cool and casual, I teamed up the “HORN OK” print cape with shorts and a black tee with sneakers to look simple and stylish.

It’s December and planning for Christmas party is in full swing. I can’t believe where did the time go? I am very excited for Christmas, the parties, get-togethers, spending quality time with family and friends, the secret Santa surprises, the glittery Christmas tree, sharing gifts and carols in the air! Furthermore, along with splurging on presents and decorations, it’s also time to think about what to wear to parties. Are you ready? If not and you need to get your party style sorted, then this is the blog for you! Here are a few easy-to-achieve ideas that might inspire you.

It’s time for some swanky and festive fashion ideas for the Christmas season. So here are my few Christmas Party Looks; whether it’s a fancy Christmas party night or Christmas lunch!

Look 1

img_4617.jpg

This shift style red dress is such a classic shape and makes it a refined and timeless look. This shape and cut is so flattering as it really clinches on your waist and then kicks out making your waist look not only smaller, but also it hides the bulges in the tummy area – surely a win-win!

Look 2

While red might be the color of the moment, green is still enjoying its fashion resurgence. Don’t forget about red’s faithful companion: green, this Christmas! Paired green palazzo with white bell sleeves top for an elegant and contemporary look.

Look 3

Add some staple pieces from your wardrobe and still have a festive outfit on your hands. For a more casual look, team it up with scarves, wraps, and shawls; the easiest way to achieve a party outfit and look stylish and chic! I always have an element in my look that is minimal and classic and makes the whole get-up look clean and put together.

Look 4

This next look is so feminine and fabulous, the lace dress is a perfect option for a romantic look. Wear it with the right accessories, hairstyle, and a flawless makeup!

Look 5

I adore this look; ideal for a Christmas evening or a Christmas lunch in the city. This skirt gives a flattering shape and is perfect for all body types, the top I teamed with it is so versatile, perfect for matching with any skirts, or it would look equally chic if worn with some black pants and stilettos! 

Look 6

I am a huge fan of maxi dresses all year long! And this RED maxi is perfect for Christmas party. Maxi dresses are stylish, feminine, comfortable and elegant!

CULOTTES IN MISSAMORE STYLE

IMG_4128 (1)

IMG_4128 (1)

There is no doubt that this season culottes are having a big moment in the fashion world. These stylish pants are so versatile and give a flawlessly flattering shape to the body and allow an array of possibilities to wear them. At first, it can be tricky to style culottes but once u nail the look you will be wondering how you ever lived without them. They make a great travel staple and currently have replaced my stack of straight pants, denim, and trousers! 

Culottes make an outfit look perfect, be it a casual day out, lunch date, formal meeting, or last-minute dinner plans this style doesn’t fail to impress! And are available in various patterns, and lengths. If you are too scared of the prints try a monotone pair to ease into this style. You can style them with a crop top, any solid color top, cold shoulder top, blouses, boxy tops, sweater, jacket, options are endless! For petite girl’s vertical culottes is apt as it creates the illusion of height.

Wearing burgundy solid top + flared culottes, that I recently shopped from one of my favorite online site Missamore. One thing I loved about this brand is the unique style of their outfits which make you look just ‘perfect’ for any occasion.  I am loving their collection and definitely, goanna go back to #MISSA MORE and shop as much as I can.
