10 looks to copy right now !!

At Heiress we believe that we can all look fashionable if guided right. Some have it in-born and some cultivate it. We all know people who are naturally good at styling, and may even have caught ourselves wishing that we could do the same. But in most cases we just can't, the colors and styles that appear to go with each other magically, sometimes are not very apparent to us.

But the good news us, for that group, you can always inspire yourself from street fashion and celebrity styles. All you have got to do is understand a look  in its most basic form. We help you decode a curated set of 10 looks that YOU too can copy ! Did we just put a smile across your face? Well its bound to get bigger.

Combine a well-fitted colored pants ( preferably high waist or medium waist) with a tank tucked in. Accessorize with flats, a printed scarf and printed canvas tote.

Reverse it! Micro Trend : Back Necklaces

The awards season started a while ago, and for any fashionista out there it remains interesting to note what celebrities wore to the red carpet. Rules and trends are made and broken here, as the fashion hungry applaud or criticize in return.

Our team witnessed the revival of rather a fad, the back necklace. The trend has a lot of historical connection with Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's as well as Lady Diana. Celebrities often, in a gap of a few seasons, embrace the trend again. At Oscars 2013, Jennifer Lawrence did a minimal version of the back necklace and Anne Hathaway a slightly more encrusted one. At Cannes 2013 red carpet Selita Ebanks also sported her own version.

Even though, the trend is popular for Christian Brides, we personally love seeing it on the street and in day-day live when you wear a backless blouse or  dress.

Have a look at the pictures and tell us... ARE YOU INSPIRED??

6 Swimwear Trends for Spring Summer 2013

Blame it on the heat wave that we keep obsessing over water. Yesterday it was the water prints and today we talk about swimwear. So if you are not heading to a beach for holiday, you can at least head to that pool party this weekend. Or perhaps continue with your swimming classes? Apart from cooling you off, it is a great exercise to tone up your body. Do you need any more reasons to go ahead with this idea?

And while you are at it, why not take some fashion along with you? Wondering  what sort of swimwear is on trend this season? Well wonder no more as here is our Swimwear Guide for S/S 2013.

Mis-Match in Style

Mis-matching separate really brings out the too-cool-to-care attitude forward. Whether you mix two prints or a print and a color or even two colors is upto you.

Micro Trend : Water Prints

Move over the galaxy prints of last seasons to give another print in the blue center stage. Welcome the water print. With designers like Charlotte Ronson, Michael Kors and Proenza Schouler all vouching for the calm and refreshing prints, it has to mean something right. We feel, this will surely and quickly trickle down and reach more fashionistas. The color and concept is universally flattering and if you have a chance to get your hands on one of these (even if slightly close) do give it a shot.

We are imaging a water print blouse with white shorts as the ultimate cool in this season, or a water print sun dress (Oh the irony!) paired minimally with Greek sandals. How would you wear the trend?

Cannes 2013 Freida Pinto VS Sonam Kapoor

If you are not living under a rock, you must have heard that Cannes 2013 started 2 days back. And while this may be too soon for a face-off but Freida Pinto and Sonam Kapoor had us spoilt for choices. Both the celebrities are already wooing us with their fashion wardrobe, and we really couldn't wait to know what you thought. 

While Sonam has already donned a semi-traditional look( which has become sort of her forte' and signature), Freida with her international appeal has been sticking with western outfits so far (and our guess is she will continue to do so) Both are also the ambassadors for L'Oreal and hence are expected to appear on some events together. But some of their pictures snapped together already point towards an amicable chemistry.

MET Gala 2013 : Who really was a punk?

For this post right here, let us forget for a few minutes what we usually find acceptable, sexy and good looking. Let's think Punk, for that was the very interesting theme of the MET Ball this year around. And Punk is rebellious, it breaks norms and does never try to fit in. Even though its elements like leather, studs are more or less a norm today and has lost its shock value ; the spirit of rebellion is at the heart of punk.

So our compilation today only talks about that, at the Red Carpet who really took a risk? Who really was dared to stand out and go a little or a lot crazy... who really was the punk?

And in case you need to see some punk imagery first, here you go!

Fashion from Music Videos

The title says it all, and gives a fine introduction to what we are fascinated by today. Be it Lady Gaga walking in Mc Queen's gasp-worthy reptile shoes in 2009 or Michael Jackson wearing the red leather jacket in Thriller in 1982, it is no news that music videos make a lot of fashion news. In fact we found on article that compares the above two.

Though, we agree it is not everyday that a legendary music video is released ; but every year some videos churned out do make you acquainted with a lot of trends. So what has been happening in 2013? Check out below. Also comment if you think we missed out on some fashion action from your favorite music star.

Tilda Swinton's huge chic bow and pastel eyeliner with a tweed blouse has got our heart beating fast.

Let's talk Bollywood!

It's been a little while since we featured well dressed Bollywood celebrities on our blog. But we consider it very important to do so, since International trends and celebrities deeply inspire us, but on we are very much in love with the locals too. And boy ! so they know their fashion. In certain cases the styling is so impeccable that it makes us stop and stare. You could do the same if you like. 

We set out to feature Bollywood Celebs in non-traditional outfits, but when we saw Kajol dressed so impeccably in a saree, we just could not help ourselves. So have a look and be sure to leave a comment to tell us who were your favorites in particular.

Latest Accessory : Knee High Gladiators

This one is rather a come-back, but in fashion isn't everything is? It is circle of fashion. But if you haven't noticed yet the big news is, Knee High Gladiators are in vogue again. They were a hit on the spring-runways, later among the edgy and bold celebrities, and it is permeating to the street too. But perhaps only the creamy layer on the street yet. But it can surely trickle down further.

But before it becomes a fairly common sight, why don't you trend-setters get yourself a pair? A piece of advice though, these would visually cut your legs in half, and hence make you look shorter. But if you are blessed with good height.. this one is for you. But there is a way around it. Either wear something like Alexander Wang's minimal gladiator interpretation. Wear them not in a high-contrasting black, instead choose a tan color closer to your skin tone. Or finish below the calf, and make sure you pair it with super-short shorts. 

But all that said, you still need to see the trend for yourself right? So here we go.
