The 20s Are Passe, Here’s To Dressing Classy In The 30s

Though most 30-year-olds feel their youth is past when they turn the corner, they should know better. The thirties are the prime time of life, when life just seems to be starting. It’s full of possibilities and one feels the struggles of the 20s are behind and one has chosen one’s career or life path and needs to only invest passion and faith in it.

Along with other subtle changes, one’s desire to wear a certain kind of fashion style also reveals itself as one enters the ‘30s. The saying goes that age is nothing but a number, however, it does mean a lot when it comes to fashion. So, filling up one’s wardrobe with a different kind of fashion clothing becomes necessary.

From choosing classier and edgier clothing to dresses that flatter your body changes will work best. Even if you think you can carry them off, please try and ditch those shorts and LBDs, that you probably wear to look 20-something. Choosing to wear something younger may actually make you look older, that’s the irony of it.

Similarly, T-shirts with loud messages are not even for the 20s, what to talk of the 30s! Instead, choose formal or semi-formal blouses that spell elegance with a capital E.

The best part about moving into a new age is you can have fun throwing out clothes that no longer make any sense and filling it up with the new and relevant. And remember, at no age should you choose boring over bombshell.

Of course, you can continue to wear jeans, which come with a versatility to suit any age, but mix and match it well. For instance, you could wear it with a sheer top. Replace a sling bag with a classy purse, because the 30s call for smart accessories too, you know.

Palazzos

The thirties are also a time when people have become comfortable with their bodies, a real issue since teenage years for most people. That, combined with a better sense of fashion, makes dressing in the 30s a win-win affair.

But one thing you gotta remember is that now, comfort dressing steals a slight edge over style dressing. Palazzos instead of churidhars and maxis instead of minis define the thirties fashion over the twenties.

You can create a whole new wardrobe for the thirties on Myntra, India’s leading fashion portal.

Beyond clothes, fashion includes a whole lot of other things as well. Make-up for instance. Once in your thirties, choose a lighter lotion for your face and body. They help by keeping age away as well as don’t make you feel the discomfort of wearing a thick anti-age cream that you can put off till the 40s. Oils with vitamin E also help to moisturize a skin that’s slowly losing its natural moisture and helps to remove the puffiness. Fruit peel-based packs also help.

When it comes to hair, avoid taking the free hand you may have done in your twenties and go for less loud hairstyles and hair colours. Talking of hair, how about trying a middle parting? Perhaps, you haven’t tried the look since your schooldays but now it will go a long way towards making you look chic.

The Show-Stopper At IIFA 2017? Myntra’s Fashion Show, Of Course

The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), although a film awards event, has almost always had a fashion show as a part of it, ever since it made its debut in year 2009. Fashion designers like Manav Gangwani, Rocky S, Anamika Khanna, Falguni Shane Peacock, and Farah Ali Khan, not to mention Vikram Phadnis, who has been involved more than once, have showcased their latest fashion designs at the prestigious event.

One might as well as ask: What’s the connect between fashion and Bollywood? However, the truth is their connection is almost symbiotic, one unable to do without the other. Bollywood has always inspired fashion – with a new trend of clothes being portrayed in the movies in each generation, which is soon imitated by an adoring movie-going public across the country! Fashion on the other hand, has given Bollywood stars something totally new to wear and showcase and have an impact otherwise impossible.

Myntra being named IIFA 2017’s Style Partner

With India’s leading online fashion portal Myntra being named IIFA 2017’s Style Partner at the film awards night in New York – Times Square, no less – how could it not do a fashion show? It did that, that too, with a difference, as has been its forte, always.

Thus, Myntra has two feathers in its cap: Not only has it been chosen as the official style partner for this year’s edition of IIFA being held in New York’s iconic Times Square, it is also going to stage a fashion show during the event.

The Big Apple is home to many fashion shows, including its own annual show, The New York Fashion Week. But when Myntra, the style partner for IIFA this year and more, unveils its fashion show on July 13 during IIFA, it will be a fashion show with a difference.

The difference lay in not making models cat-walk on the ramp, but to “unramp” the fashion show, altogether, and making its models stroll on stage in groups, in a fun and informal way. The show stoppers were Bollywood actors Dia Mirza and Tapsee Pannu – who showed that there were many new and imaginative ways to adorn a sari, the Indian six-yard wonder.

Other clothes portrayed on the ramp were a mix-and-match of clothes and accessories available on Myntra from its Gen Next collection – comprising the latest quirky, urban, street fashion and stylish wear.

For those watching the IIFA awards back home, had no reason to feel deprived from not being able to have a slice of the cake. They could simply come online and shop in realtime for the very same clothes which were being showcased on the catwalk.

As more than 20 million Myntra app users voted for their favourite style icon, Bollywood star Alia Bhatt quickly won for herself the title of Myntra’s ‘Style Icon Of The Year.’

Later, there was even a green carpet interaction between the Bollywood celebrities and Myntra customers.

One could say, the awards night was one of the best of fashion and the best of Bollywood coming together: Myntra representing the best of fashion and IIFA bringing the best of Bollywood under one roof.

How blue cloth from France became Denim from America

Contrary to popular belief, the blue denim that has become inseparable from modern life, be it high-fashion or comfortable casual wear, was not born in America, but has its roots in Nimes, in the southern France region of Languedoc-Roussillon.

Although Levi Strauss is credited with having created the first blue denim trousers, as well as for coining the name “jeans” in the mid-19th century, the material used by him to stitch the very first “jeans” was a tough cotton fabric known as serge de Nimes, which was dyed blue because indigo was the easiest colour to use.

The year was 1853 and Levi Strauss, a 24-year-old German immigrant, had just left New York for San Francisco because of the Gold Rush happening in California. He opened a dry goods shop there. One day, a customer – who was a prospector in the gold mines – came in to check out his goods. When all he saw was some rough canvas-like cloth for making tents and wagon covers, the customer retorted, “You should have brought pants!”, adding that trousers didn’t last long enough in the mines.

Levi decided to use the blue cloth to make rough overalls, which he named “Jeans” from the word “genoa”, the name of the blue dye, and called the material “denim” from the phrase “serge de-Nimes”. Levi Strauss realised he had struck a gold mine himself after the new Denim Jeans created by him became a huge hit with prospectors as well as miners. Soon, their fame spread across America.

The Denim Shirt Is Back: How To Slay The Look

While the denim as a fabric remains extremely popular in jeans, jackets, belts, and what not, the Denim Shirt, in particular, is back under the spotlight. In fact, it has such a versatile look that it offers both men and women many different ways of wearing it.

According to the fashion manual Idleman, there are two main ways for  a man to wear a Denim Shirt: heavy or light. For those into oversized, casual cool, one can pair the Denim Shirt with a jersey, a jacket and hiking boots, to create the rugged all-male outdoor look. For those preferring a more subtle look, a slim-fit Denim Shirt can be worn in a casual or tailored look: wear it unbuttoned with joggers or dress it up with a tie and blazer. Choose a light blue denim shirt or one with faded wash. A washed out denim works with all skin tones, thankfully, so one always looks fabulous wearing one of these.

The Refinery, into personal style coaching, has not one but 21 stylish ways for Women to wear the Denim Shirt. To begin with, it puts the Denim Shirt on a pedestal by calling it a “classic piece you must own”, adding however, that despite its versatility, the debate about what to wear with it, makes it not worn as much. So, it suggests 21 “bottoms” to pair it with.

The Denim Shirt on Myntra

Myntra brings the Denim Shirt from Forever 21 (solid casual shirt), ONLY (printed, navy blue, faded, washed, round neck, even polka dot), and Vera Moda (regular fit and washed casual). So, one can sport the best of not just American but even European fashion right here in India. Interestingly, Forever 21 was among the first to offer a distressed blue Denim Shirt as well as long Denim Shirt.

Why Gigi Hadid is inspiring Tommy Hilfiger’s collections

Gigi Hadid was spotted early this year at the London Fashion Week, promoting the TOMMY X GIGI Spring ’17 collection. It was the second time that the supermodel was promoting the eclectic American fashion designer’s clothes, which has her creative inputs as well.

So, how did the two iconic personalities collaborate?

It was in January 2016 that Tommy Hilfiger announced Gigi Hadid’s name as the brand ambassador for his Women’s Wear for the Fall Collection of 2016, as part of the brand’s plan to build on a new vision and plan a strategic expansion of its global Women’s business.

Gigi, too, was thrilled with the association. “I never thought I would be asked to design a capsule collection, so it still feels like a dream that Tommy approached me to collaborate,” she said. “His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life… I have always looked up to his brand, campaigns and design style.”

On the TOMMY X GIGI collection, she says, “Our collection celebrates the iconic Tommy lifestyle and mixes a bit of everything. There are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear, and styles that are tomboy but girly. Everyone’s going to love a different part of it.”

The first collection featured women’s sportswear, footwear and accessories, including watches and sunglasses, as well as a new fragrance, reflective of Hadid’s unique take on modern style, fused with Hilfiger’s signature “classic American cool” heritage.

Tommy himself had this to say about his business association with Gigi: “She is truly the definition of today’s ‘Tommy Girl’ – her magnetic personality is bright and always optimistic, her style confident, effortless and cool.”

Gigi Hadid, who has appeared on the covers of Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, TeenVogue, Numéro, Schön!, and CR Fashion Book, amongst others, joins a list of influential women who have partnered with the Tommy Hilfiger brand. These included Beyoncé, Kate Hudson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Naomi Campbell, Naomi Watts and Alexa Chung.

TOMMY X GIGI collection

At the time, Myntra fans were thrilled to discover that they could get their hands on the TOMMY X GIGI Collection on Myntra as soon as it was unveiled on the ramp in LA! What’s more, one can still get the unique TOMMY X GIGI style on Myntra.

What sets Gigi apart from other models on the runway of the past decade is her non-size zero shape. That, combined with the comfortable looks has won her a huge following. Her managers have not failed to notice how to capitalize on her 34.3 million followers on Instagram, since today’s world is ruled by the social media. So, what happened next was Gigi’s transformation from a supermodel to one that ruled the social media too. It was a win-win situation for all the brands she endorsed as she could easily promote them on those channels.

Hilfiger recalls, “When she hit the runway, the fans went crazy, they wanted to buy everything she was wearing, and we talked at length about how we could use Gigi as more than a model. I think a designer has never partnered with a model before and allowed the model to have a serious hand in designing the collection.” Yes, indeed, it was a first and disruptive, at that.

The TOMMY X GIGI capsule collection got sold at tremendous speed, online as well as offline. That success was replicated in a second collection, which boasted denims, bomber jackets, dresses, skirts, crop-tops and T-shirts.

Fashion Has Always Been All About You

India is turning fashionable, and what’s more, it is starting young. Unlike previous generations when only a select few included fashion in their daily choices, today’s world is one where almost every person is into fashion. Today’s fashion is not just about wearing trendy clothes but also the knowledge to accessorize and blend fashion with one’s own taste, all at the same time.

A leading fashion portal like Myntra cannot but be elated at this change. Anant Narayanan, CEO, Myntra & Jabong, in an interview with CNBC, said that fashion and lifestyle are undergoing a major transformation in recent times.

In fact, he went so far as to describe fashion as having emerged as a culture. The reasons for this, elaborated Ananth, was fashion becoming one of the best forms of self-expression; the modern Indian woman becoming aware about what she wants to do; and existing biases getting better. Making Myntra a daily habit for women was a task they had undertaken, shared Ananth.

All About You

What better example than Deepika Padukone’s All About You when it comes to a clothes brand created to give the wearer the freedom to actually wear what one wants, be it in the material that best suits the Indian weather, or having the choice of wearing western as well as Indian (which not many brands offer) and also being one of the most affordable brands in fashion, costing just between Rs 800-Rs 4000.

As Deepika Padukone shared in the same interview, when she initially thought of launching her own clothesline, it was to give expression to the girl inside. But her passion soon evolved into the idea of empowering girls and women, from age 15 to age 40, by giving them the right to find their preferred fashion within this brand.

Deepika said that fashion was an extension of a person’s personality and it truly came into fruition when one had the liberty to wear what they wanted to at home, work or any social setting without any peer pressure. Talking of her Spring-Summer collection launched recently, she said it had softer and lighter fabrics, lace, florals and pastels, with comfort being the key word. Deepika also emphasized that knowledge and acceptance of one’s own uniqueness is key and it is upto each one of us to mould it into our strength. Only then can a person drive out the irrelevant and embrace themselves.

All About You has also proved to be one of the top five women’s wear brands on Myntra, and among the top ten on Jabong, according to Ananth. The unique partnership of Deepika and Ananth, one an actor and the other a businessman, can be credited with the success that All About You has seen in the online retail space. By making the brand a lot more accessible to a larger audience, by endorsing simplicity as well as pizzazz, All About You has reduced the isolation that a lot of brands create by catering to specific trends and audiences. As Deepika has stated, it is all about exploring and embracing your true self which would in turn reflect in one’s style and clothing, the idea on which All About You is based on. As a matter of fact, Deepika based the idea of the brand based on her own mother’s elegant and relatable fashion which inspired her.

All About You has seen good growth in recent years. With a Year on Year growth of 150%, it’s no surprise that the brand is so hugely successful and will continue scaling higher in the foreseeable future.

No More Billing Queues At Roadster’s New Outlet

On March 17th 2017, Myntra opened its first offline retail store for its outdoor lifestyle brand Roadster, one of its bestsellers. The opening of this store lines up with Myntra’s ambition of employing technology to make fashion and lifestyle more accessible to the Indian mass.

The new Roadster store is opening at 100 Feet Road in Indiranagar, one of the very posh residential and commercial locality of Bengaluru. With a store size of 4000 square feet, this luxuriously huge store has been designed to engage customers with its appearance, ambience and use of technology.

Roadster

Inside the store is a video wall, with complete control to shopper by virtue of a touch interface, which will display every nooks and crannies of all Roadster products as well as provide a snippet of the latest fashion trends across the globe. To make things more interesting for the customer, a ‘Scan & Go’ purchase mechanism will be in place which will allow customers to add their purchase choices from the Roadster lineup into the Myntra shopping cart, removing the need for shopping bags, checkout counters and long billing queues, making it an even more comfortable experience for the customer.

To take the technology boom employed at Roadster one step further, a ’Highway 360’ feature, powered by virtual reality, will allow a person to visit idyllic locations and have incredible experiences, all through a virtual road trip. If this wasn’t enough, the customers will also get to pick tokens from a display that are to be placed on the touch-surface which will reveal real life destinations and clothing options appropriate for said location. All of this technology is done through the power of Artificial Intelligence, designed to empower and enrich the customer experience.

Myntra and Roadster’s alliance has paved the way for Myntra to develop an omni-channel presence, a feat not yet achieved by e-commerce sites in India of this scale. Roadster’s sale on Myntra constitutes of a little more than 8% of the overall revenue of Myntra, and such a partnership will help push Myntra’s dream of technology integration to the customer buying experience.

Ananth Narayan, CEO of Myntra & Jabong, spoke at the occasion of the store’s soft opening. He said that the store’s opening was the first step in Myntra’s plan to expand in the offline market and a brand like Roadster, with a growth rate of 80% YoY, will make for a very beneficial partnership for Roadster to boost its products and Myntra to become more omnipresent in the Indian retail market. He added that the store would be a transformative experience for customers through the technology that they will get to experience and bring in a new era of the shopping experience overall.

Adding to that, Manohar Kamath, Head of Myntra’s Fashion Brands, said that the store will be an addition to the portfolio of what Myntra has to and can offer to customers and the store’s design will prove to be a game changer for the future of retail.

The TVC has been created and produced by Taproot Dentsu. Speaking on the occasion, Ayesha Ghosh, General Manger, Taproot Dentsu, said “As an e-commerce platform, Myntra’s edge lies in the width and depth of offerings, as well as the ease with which to access them. To launch their sport offering, we felt this route works best, as it covers the A-Z of sport and makes for an interesting way to display the sheer number of sporting brands that are available on Myntra. It speaks to anyone, whether serious about sport or not. While not the focus of the story, the service aspects of assisted shopping and shoe finder technology convey the required expertise for Myntra to take the high ground on sport.”
