Celebrating the Shades of the Tricolor

Parades of marching soldiers, thousands of fluttering flags and a sentiment of patriotism will soon sweep the country. As we celebrate Republic Day this year, why not let the fervour show in what you wear? It's not too difficult and will look great as well!
Wearing traditional Indian clothing need not be boring. In fact you can make a style statement or support an age old Indian art form. You can never go wrong with a cotton kurta. What's more, it goes well with jeans as well as churidars and is perfect for guys or even girls. Try shades of blue, saffron or green. But, remember to keep the shoes subtle. Nude pumps or white sandals will go well.
And if you're tired of the traditional ethnic look, try the bohemian look. Flair crushed skirts are not only comfortable, but look great as well. Available in a riot of colour, team it with a black or white blouse. If you want take the look a little further, try a dhoti or Patiala with a kurta. Mix and match the colours. Here's when your kolhapuris or sandals will come handy. And since the bohemian look goes great with a miss match of colour, you can try totally different colours of sandals to offset your ensemble.
Accessories play an important part in your look. They're perfect to add a hint of colour to an all white ensemble or just blend with a colourful look. Get those jhola bags out of your closet and team it with the junk jewelry you bought from the neighbourhood street side vendor.

Think you got all the elements to match your look? If not, you don't need to worry as we've got a wide variety of footwear to choose from, all in the comfort of home!

Stay Stylish @ Work this Winter

With all those festivities and holidays coming to an end, it might get hard to return to the daily grind. But the new year brings along with it loads of excitement. And the best way to reflect that is through you personal style. So even if you don't feel like getting up early to take your daily local, your new look will give you plenty of reason to drive you. Don't worry, as always we're with you on this!

To get started with your look, the number one rule is to feel comfortable in what your wear. Make sure your clothes and shoes don’t leave you begging for air. With temperatures dipping, you’re sure to feel as cold on your way to work as well as in your work place. Closed shoes would be a good bet. Tweed jackets, black tapering pants, and shades of gray are perfect to complete your look!

We know it gets difficult to choose what to wear when you have so much to wear. The key to smart dressing is ‘Mix and match’! A pair of nude pumps will virtually go with anything. Try a suede pair of boots with leggings or stockings for a semi formal look. Pointy toes make a comback this season and are great for those tapering pants. Try red, if you want to add some colour in your ensemble.

 
 

Guys, we didn’t forget about you. We know how important it is to power dress for those important meetings. Leather’s probably what you’ve always been wearing. But leather need not be boring. Besides the customary black, try shades of brown as well. Experiment with textures and patterns. Suede shoes go extremely well with chinos and are perfect for Friday dressing!

Hey, it’s never too late to upgrade that wardrobe. So make the most of our year-end sales! We’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment or hit that ‘like’ button!

Happy Sankranti!

Sankranti Wishes from FASHOS.com

If you're thinking that the season of celebration is over, then you couldn't be more wrong. It's time for a whole new list of festivals to begin. Leading them all is the vibrant festival of Makar Sankranti which is celebrated with much fervor across the country. And how could we forget Lohri in Punjab? And before flying colourful kites, singing songs around bonfires or eating tonnes of sweets, you would need to get your new ensemble in place. And as always, we're here to help you!

Don't be shy to experiment with colour. Brighter the shade, more cheerful the look. But, maintain restraint as you don't want to look like a riot of colours. Darker tones are always safer, especially if you're not sure how to play with bright colours. The combination of red and green could never go wrong. Yellow either by itself or with light tones of blue or pink would be perfect for the festive celebration. Yellow is also the colour of happiness. From patialas, churidars to saris, let colour speak for the occasion!

&Now that you've got your ensemble in place, it's time to pick your footwear. From mojris to stiletto sandals, choose your shoes according to your look. Once again, mix and match. If you're ensemble is colourful then stick to sober shades for your footwear. Nudes or whites would be a good bet to try. You can try mixing red mojris with a green churidar or white and yellow sandals with a yellow sari.
It's never too late to buy a pair of new shoes. So don't worry, if you still don't have your footwear decided. Just click on our collection of shoes and select what works for you! What's more, our season sales will ensure those new stilettos are not too heavy on your pocket!
