A little shimmer is the perfect way to add a sophisticated dimension to your swimwear. A delicate pendant & gold earrings are preferred because they inspire thoughts of the golden sun. Earrings with a little bit of movement and flexibility will look great when you turn your head or walk along the beach.

Look_03

To rock that Little Black Dress,  pick a necklace that adds a bit of sophisticated spark on your chest and as earrings go, make sure they highlight your facial feature & flatter your skin tone.

5 Summer Hair Trends For 2016 To Get Onboard With

The best part about seasons is the inevitable wardrobe switch from fuzzy woolens to airy cottons. And it ain’t just the clothes. Anything that can – and must – be stylish goes through a rigorous trend mapping. Everything right from your toenails to your tresses. Speaking of which, let’s have a look at the hottest summer hair trends for 2016, shall we?

 

  1. Bob with Layers & Bangs

Last year was the year of the sharp and asymmetric bob. But as you walk into the new year and your roots grow out that asymmetric perfection, move towards this tussled and carefree bob with long layers and bangs.image (1)fgsd

 

  1. Sleek & Pointy

If your mantra for the season is “slick hair don’t care”, then you go girl and this look with the poker straight hair styled with some razor sharp layers will compliment your mantra perfectly. Go for a middle-parting and you’re golden!hbz-summer-haircuts-alessandra-ambrosio

 

  1. Textured Cut with Bangs

Lassies with medium to long tresses, this one’s your calling. Ask you stylist to give you a layered cut with some thorough careless texture. Turn up the sass by coupling the layered locks with some side swept bangs.GettyImages-516997714

 

  1. Fringed Mop

A cute mop of lightly textured hair reaching just about your jawline with brawled bangs spells out S-U-M-M-E-R. Dye it for some added panache. Shades of maroon or a natural redhead shade should do the trick just right!hbz-summer-haircuts-taylor-swift

 

  1. Platinum Plated

If you want to let your hair cut be and still be in vogue, dive right into some icy platinum hair color. Spotted on A-list celebs and fashionistas, the colour might be a task to pull off but is totally worth the risk!jourdan-dunn

10 Male Fashion Icons Who’ve Got Their Style Game Going Strong

The unintentional cold war between Mars and Venus is a constant that can never die down. So if women can strut the streets in head turning attire and set statements, can men be far behind? Here are 10 men who have been and will be forever associated with the term ‘style icon’.

  1. Steve McQueen

Before you roll your eyes at this predictable addition, let’s just say McQueen has totally earned it! It has never been about what he wore but how he wore it. Enough said.steve mcqueen

  1. Jean-Michael Basquiat

A celebrated graffiti artist in the 80s, Basquiat managed to create massive waves on the fashion front as well. He modeled for a Japanese label and partnered with Andy Warhol among a number of other achievements. Basquiat had a rather quaint desire of always wearing expensive suits while creating his masterpieces.jean_michel_basquiat_by_minackson-d32kna92

  1. Cristóbal Balenciaga

Really? Do we even need to explain why Balenciaga is one of history’s most celebrated male icons? The flag bearer of the double-breasted, sharp and tailored suit, Balenciage brought monochrome dressing in the spotlight.balenciaga

  1. Ryan Gosling

Did you just go “What?! This guy?” We had our doubts as well but Google Images was more than happy to correct our misconception. And no we’re not just biased because The Notebook made us feel things we didn’t even know existed but simply because the man knows how to dress up.Ryan-Gosling-Hot-Tea1

  1. James Dean

not just a pretty face, James Dean was a known rebel of his time who impacted minds in more ways than one. Not just was he a superbly convincing actor but also an outright trend setter.jd1

  1. Nickelson Wooster

There is nothing on the face of his planet that is coller than salt and pepper hair and an impeccable sense of dressing. Nickelson Wooster is living proof of just that. Those bold tattoos (at all the right places) add just about enough oomph to the entire package.wooster

  1. Johnny Depp

Can you come with even one name that could’ve walked off as Jack Sparrow, Willy Wonka, Edward Scissorhands or The Mad Hatter and look half as comfortable in his skin and convincible? That is simply because Johnny Depp carries off all his looks with the utmost panache be it unkempt dreadlocks, pale white skin or even a simple jeans and T!Johnny-Depp-D-johnny-depp-32536585-520-600

  1. Giovanni ‘Gianni’ Agnelli

A business tycoon who ruled the Italian subcontinent’s economy for almost 3 decades, Agnelli was admired as much for his style as he was for his business sense. A few of his signature styles included deliberately leaving his tie crooked and tucking his sleeve below the watch.8edc43fb1a93ac091033c7bb46473b8d

  1. Colin Tennant

The 3rd Baron Glenconner, Lord Glenconner was a Scottish aristocrat known for his ways of ‘having fun’. These included buying islands and turning them into a “multimillionaires’ playground”. Glenconner dressed up in fresh and bright hues and often accessorized with wide-brimmed hats. The fact that his off-beat style statements totally worked (even in the 80s!) – earns him a spot as a fashion icon.lord

  1. Terence Stamp

You know a person knows his wardrobe when he refuses to be styled even for a photoshoot and instead go by his own taste. Say hello to Terence Stamp, one of the best dressed in London who also happens to be renowned Mayfair tailor Doug Hayward’s earliest clients.terence stamp
