How have you guys been? My side has been a little hectic. But good hectic. You know where you’re busy but you love it. I think it is mainly because I love what I do so it doesn’t really bother me. Also, the love that you guys pour in is so encouraging that I see no pain in working my ass off for anything. It has been a great journey so far. With all that support, I am also now finally selling my DIY projects through Instagram. So if you like what I make and do not have the time or energy to make it yourself, you can now buy it from you. For that you need to follow @thesassybeans on Instagram. TIA.
Moving forward, today we going to talk about bell bottoms. Aren’t you loving the fact that they are back? I sure am. Back as a teenager, I hated them. Literally. I have always been skinny and then the kind of bell bottoms we got were really loose. They hung on me like on a hanger and it was painful. So this time too when they made an entry I was skeptical of how they would look on me. So instead of getting a full on flared jeans I got myself a pair of bootcuts from Myntra. I just wanted to make sure they don’t look as hideous as they looked the last time.
To my relief, they didn’t. In fact, they look gorgeous. I am now planning to go ahead with getting some pair of the proper bell bottoms but for those who think the flare is a little too much, you can always opt for such boot cut jeans.
Look 01: Rock it retro.
What’s better than rocking that pair of flared jeans the way it used to be when it was introduced. I love retro and totally swoon over the popstars of 70’s who made bell bottoms look ever so gorgeous. So I decided to do the same.
Of course going all the way is a little too much so I tried to keep it subtle. I paired my jeans with a striped bodysuit and a head scarf for that retro touch. Some flatforms to go with the whole vibe created a beautiful outfit together. What do you think?
Look 02. Andro what?
Androgynous, yes! I told you I was a tom boy right? Yeah, like a million times. I am a passionate lover of androgynous fashion. This is mainly because of how powerful and bold that kind of clothing makes you feel. Your outfit does give you feels, and this one here gives me the chills.
For the same, I wore a white shirt because there’s nothing classier than crisp white shirt. Also added these suspenders that are actually an old bag’s belt. (I was making that bag. Never finished.) Quick tip: If you don’t have real suspenders, you can always put a similar belt around your neck and tuck it in your pants for that look on the front.
Also wore these Ikat shoes from Banjaran. They sure are ice breakers, aren’t they?
Look 03. Bohemian head.
Bohemian or boho has been the buzz word for a long time now. And everybody seems to love it. Of course, who wouldn’t love such carefree vibes! Also, a lot of people have a misconception that flared jeans does not look good with long tops. It sure does.So, I wore my ombre skirt as a top over the jeans to show you how you can actually rock those kurtis, slit tops or just anything long over these retro beauties. Don’t be shy. There’s never harm trying.
I paired it with this tasseled necklace that I used as a belt, some silver loop earrings and gold strappy sandals. Gold and silver together? Why the hell not!
