If your wardrobe still has just blue jeans as bottom wear, then girl you need a style check! Fashion is ever changing and you’ve got to keep yourself updated if you don’t want to look like you’re from the previous generation. Jeans will always remain our favourite, but it’s time you added a few other stuffs to your closet. Here’s a list..
These are long trousers with extremely wide legs flaring out from the waist. Palazzo pants were very popular in the 40’s and 60’s and came back with a bang on this year’s spring-summer runaways. Be in solid shades or pretty prints, palazzo pants are very comfortable and versatile –they cover up as well as flaunt, as and when the need be.
Cigarette trousers are body hugging trousers that are often high waisted and cropped at the ankle. Mostly tailored in cotton and elastane, cigarette pants give a sleek look. If you’re blessed with an hourglass shape then this should be on your immediate shopping list.
This slim fitting skirt with narrow cut waist seems to be a hit with the woman of power. Sleek, stylish and classy, pencil skirts accentuate your waistline and pelvis. There maybe variations in length but the perfect size is the one that ends in the knee. Pencil skirts often come with interesting twists like the peplum waist.
High waist skirts
These skirts are worn from the mid riff and end in the thigh giving the effect of a short skirt, but more sophisticated by far. Unlike pencil skirts, these flare from the waist. High waisted skirts look extremely classy when paired with cropped jackets.
Well I never said you should abandon your jeans did I? Only this time when you stock up on jeans, get a couple of pastel shade ones. Think powder pink or lilac or mint green.
A new hit among the people who like to keep it short –the boyfriend shorts add an androgynous twist to a feminine style. Boyfriend shorts extend till the knee and the cut is very similar to men’s shorts.
Cowl trousers or Dhoti pants are loose at the top and tighten as they go down. Wear these trousers to incorporate an ethnic element in your look.
So now you know what the fashion situation is like. Feel free to share pointers incase we have missed any. Watch this space for more updates on fashion. Let’s keep it stylish ladies!
Wake up at 6, go to work by 10, stay in office till 9, get home and go to sleep. Though it may sound slightly exaggerated, we can’t deny that our lives have been reduced to the monotony of a rat race. As much as we may hate to admit it, it’s a material world and we are all material people. Don’t agree? When was the last time you actually sat watching it rain outside?

Figure out which things are the most important to you in life. Often times we think the most urgent things are the most important ones, but it’s not so. After you have set your priorities, try devoting more time to those things that are important to you.
Time Management– Every Day
Plan out your day the night before, allotting specific slots to all the things that you need to do, which includes spending time with your family as well as pampering yourself a bit.
Time Management- Long Term
Make an Excel spreadsheet for yourself recording all the things you have promised to do in a few months’ time. This includes going for a vacation, going to your child’s function, and other family engagements. This way you’ll know which days you will be unavailable for work and manage your work accordingly.
Exercise is not only good for your body but also for your mind. Even a 15 minutes jog every morning will energize you and rejuvenate you from the previous day’s exertions.
Apart from all this, take out some time for something that you love to do, like a hobby. If you love to paint then take out some time for it everyday. It’ll help clear your mind and refresh you.
Have realistic goals
You are a human being and not even the most annoying boss in the world would expect you to do superhuman tasks. So don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself. When you do your work, do it religiously and when you don’t, well do that religiously too.
Take a break
Sometimes when there’s too much of pressure, we all experience ‘mental block’. When this happens, take a break, have some coffee or some chocolate. Or just meditate or listen to some relaxing music or simply stare blankly out of the window for sometime. The same advice counts for anxiety and tension.
Why are you working anyway? To give a happy life to yourself and your family. Now if you stay so immersed in work and never make time for yourself or the relationships you have nurtured all life, the entire purpose will stand defeated. In our world where time is always a precious commodity, probably the perfect work-life-balance is not even possible to achieve. But you can at least set your priorities right and devote time accordingly. After all, it is a short life we have got.
When was the last time you bought books from a bookstore instead of getting them from Flipkart.com? Or your handbag from a shop instead of having it shipped from bagskart? Yes, the electronic-media retail pandemic is catching up in India too, and why not, online stores offer a greater variety of merchandise and deliver the order at your doorstep.
E-commerce refers to the business transactions conducted electronically on the internet. In the past couple of years, India has seen enormous growth in e-commerce which still continues unabated. Forrester, a leading global research and advisory firm reports in their ‘Asia Pacific Online Retail Forecast, 2011 to 2016’ that e-commerce market in India is set to grow at a rate of over 57% within the span of five years.
The ever increasing popularity of internet retailing can be attributed to the demand and appetite of Indian consumers and the willingness of investors to invest in the media. The push-of-a-button order system of e-commerce seems most convenient for today’s crowd since it saves a lot of time. E-commerce gives a chance to all companies, big or small, to go beyond the geographical boundaries and reach the global market. The 24×7 business transaction rule also escalates sales and profits for the online retailers. For the consumers, e-commerce provides a panorama of things to choose from in the comfort of their homes and the price is often cheaper than the outdoor market.
Sadly enough, this revolutionary trend in commerce is not accessible to the entire country as there are still places which do not have proper unperturbed access to the internet. But that problem is expected to be overcome soon considering the continuous advancement in technology. Besides the exclusively-online stores like Myntra , Urbantouch, Snapdeal, and eBay, other retailers like Shopper’s Stop with outlets around the country are also setting up e-commerce websites because of their popularity. It’s like they say on the new Google chrome advertisement – “the web is what you make of it”, the e-commerce trend is a satisfying and assuring example of mankind’s progress.
