Dress-up like the Retro Sun

Hi girls! Doing well?

Okay, so this post in reality had to go up yesterday, but since its my country's independence day today, I just thought of putting it up now to celebrate the pride since I'm wearing one of the colors from India's national flag. Having said that, you already know orange has become my don't-like-at-all to my all-time-favorite within a year and I love it so much so that my bedroom walls are painted orange too! Haha! Now, today I'm sharing with you a look that I created inspired by the 80's gorgeous ladies who loved lace dresses, living now an era of modernisation.

At various stages of the 20th century, there is no longer the "lace golden era", but these years, lace comes back with fashion. The Lace dress has fallen in and out of favor with many women due to poor quality, scratchy lace being all that was available for many years, unless spending hundreds on a key piece. With many softer lace fabrics available now, they are not only comfortable to wear but extremely beautiful and feminine. This type is now fashionable and affordable with many pieces sporting bold colors, daring styles and sexy lace options. From the beginning of summer, lace is coming with a dash of graceful gesture, adding the midsummer night a touch of romantic and charming colors. The reason why lace is so popular till today is not because of its long and glorious history, but its sweet and graceful style!

For me, lace was always something revealing (see-through), I thought I'd never be able to wear the trend until I realized that lace dresses are made attaching an inner piece of fabric as well. And then, one day while scrolling through the Limeroad website, I came across this pretty orange shift dress made of cotton lace. The very moment I saw it, I knew I had to buy it. The floral lace from top to bottom made me drool over the piece. Shift dresses have always been one of my favorite shapes. They are elegant, pure and simple with minimalist design lines. Also, they are extremely comfortable. Since I can’t deal with tight waists in the summer, the shift is my throw-it-on-and-look-cute summer staple! I teamed up my dress with a pair of brown leather bellies since my belt at the waistline was brown too! I wanted to keep everything matching and because browns and oranges go very well together I put on a lighter shade bag, the beige! And the same went with my Fedora hat which I got from Mumbai last year and its been my on-the-go favorite since then. The best add-ons were my Miu Miu sunglasses (gifted by someone very very special) giving the real retro touch to my look and the Titan watch which I stole from my mom about 10 years ago! Even though the summer weather is becoming really nasty and the sun is making us sweat all day, the whole look turned out to be super chic and cute.
