“High and Waisted”

High Waisted Tapered Pants - Rupika Chopra

The Super High Waisted Tapered Pants 🙂 

Who wears the pants in the House ……..Yeah…we do!!!

Summer is not yet over guys …….and till we can flash those abs without feeling the chill ….yeah… we will flaunt it, because we have it !!Oh my!! I still remember looking at Claudia Schiffer’s pictures in the high waisted pants …..Simply breath taking!!!                      I remember I got mine tailored in school just the same way and I did not feel any less wearing them to my school carnival. 🙂

From a time, when it was a big deal for women to wear pants in 1940’s …..(when women were striving for equal rights with men) – To now in the Millennial age – women have adorned pants from High, Mid to Low waist, boasting different cuts…..and styles. Pants actually paved their way through the bloomers. In 1851 a bloomer craze took over among women and they wore it under their dresses pushing boundaries with men. During the World War 1, when men went to  war, the women took their roles and wore their pants to work comfortably in the factories.

It was in the 1920 ‘s when Coco Chanel stole her lovers riding trousers and wittily designed women’s pants for the purpose of riding. The famous Hollywood beauties Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich wore trousers and also photographed in a man’s Tuxedo…..which gave freedom to women to wear pants without being looked down upon in society. 

High waisted pants became a “must have” in 1970’s and the 80’s. By then the High Waisted Denims became super popular. Owning a pair was a must for every girl!!  Ask any lady about their closet favourite at that time…and they will surely mention about this versatile piece from their closet.

In 1990’s ofcourse the low rise waist took over and almost replaced the “high waisted fever ” for a while. But it happily found its way back in the fashion scene, taking over catwalks for all seasons. From Spring to Winter ……there are amazing styles displayed across the globe. I love the fact that fashion storyline has become so eclectic and similar across the world, thanks to globalisation undoubtedly.

These Super High Waisted Tapered Pants are comfortable and cool to hang in anywhere. You can even wear them to work with a tucked in shirt or a sweet white top. They surely look elegant and accentuate your waist beautifully.

My white knotted shirt and flats ooze a relaxed vibe. I chose my Hat as the best accessory with this look and added some colour with my sun glasses.  The detailing on the trousers with crochet flowers is the most attractive part of my Kecks.

LBD’s are Forever!!

Little Black Dress - Rupika Chopra

Brunette loves her Little Black Dress :

Knock Knock……… who’s there??? Hi Darling, It’s me …..dressed in my “Little Black Dress” for a charming evening 🙂

The famous Little Black Dress originated in the 1920’s and yet again, Coco Chanel unlatched a gateway to an ever lasting elegant style of neutral classic LBD’s. Look….. how long the style has proven its prominent space in a woman’s closet. We are in 2018…..and we are almost closing a century with this one now. A well cut LBD, no matter how old, is a timeless companion like that diamond ring on your finger.

There is always flexibility of  dressing up or dressing down in your LBD. Black is a powerful neutral colour. The good thing about the black dress is you can layer it with a jacket, a scarf and bold accessories. An occasion has the liberty to define your look. An elegant LBD works for every season. It makes you look sharp as A Little Black Dress flatters every skin tone. Little Back Dress - Rupika Chopra

An LBD has been an important fashion garment among the stars and the Royals because of it’s versatility. We can’t forget Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and more so none of us can ever forget the gorgeous Princess Diana dressed immaculately in her LBD outside the Serpentine Gallery in 1994.

How can we deny, that LBD’s shower sensuality and one never has to ponder much for selecting a Feel Good Body Flattering LBD. Although, the length of an LBD must vary for different occasions, to be in one’s comfort zone. A well cut LBD like mine is quite figure flattering and oozes exclusivity. It is the cut that matters and Italians hardly ever go wrong with it!! This dress is designed by one of my favourite designers —Elisabetta Franchi. Her cuts are divine and the detailing on each garment is beyond impressive. You feel sultry in every attire of her’s. But this one is special!!

I love the layers on the dress as they make the attire more feminine and add a softer touch to it. I decided to play it cool with accessories and wore a pair of pearl earrings with it. You can blast this outfit with chunkier earrings and a bracelet as well. Leave your hair in soft curls to look enchanting.

Wear this dress to – a formal dinner, cocktail, a special date, and of course to any party and be assured, you will set the eyes rolling!!
