Trendy Kurtis From Oomph In My Closet | Review

I am usually wary of buying clothes from new online brands because of my worries regarding the sizing and the quality of the clothes. However, when the lovely folks from Oomph In My Closet approached me, I couldn’t resist saying yes to their trendy kurtis¬†that are definitely fashion forward and unique at the same time. I have realised over the years that the pieces of clothing that I really love and re-use the most are the ones that are not the standard styles that are “in” at the moment but a different take on them, and the kurtis¬†from Oomph fit this description perfectly!

I loved the fabric of these kurtis because it is light weight and smooth Рaka perfect for the summers. I am a size XS in the brand and this is a comfortable fit for me, which I prefer as opposed to body hugging kurtis, especially in the sultry weather. I love the fact that the brand combines unique colours, patterns, and prints with latest trends such as tassels and ties, to create offbeat designs that are not cheap replicas of designer wear.

Pricewise, these kurtis are quite affordable, with most designs being priced at INR 700-800 on Flipkart. This is a great price because the popular brands provide kurtis of similar quality at around INR 1200. So this brand definitely gets a big thumbs up from me and I am already eyeing more pieces from their range.

Head over to their Instagram page now to add some Oomph to your closets too!

How I Style My Black Outfits In Summer

Black is hands-down the most flattering colour for all body types and skin tones, however, styling black outfits in the summer months can be tricky, especially during the day. Nevertheless, this does not make me ditch my black ensembles on warm days because I know that they are some of the best pieces in my wardrobe. Here is how I recently styled a black dress for a summer brunch, to make sure that I don’t look completely out of place and inappropriately dressed for the weather.

To keep things easy and breezy, I went for a black dress with a looser silhouette and floral cutouts from Shein.com. This loose-fitting style is definitely more weather appropriate than say a bodycon dress in a dark colour. I also didn’t want to sport an all black, wintery look, so I added a splash of colour with a beautiful tassel necklace from Ajio.com and a pair of matching blue earrings. I also sported a bright fuchsia lip that definitely shouts spring.

I would have loved to pair some colourful pom-pom sandals with the outfit but since I don’t own any, I went with the golden flats from Ajio.com which are also quite summer-appropriate. Flats add a casual vibe to the dress, which would look quite formal with heels, and the gold definitely adds a fun element to the outfit.

Overall, I was super happy with the final look and would definitely sport it again on a sunny day. Are you someone who loves their black dresses all year round? Leave me a high five in the comments if you are!

My Summer Shoe Wishlist Featuring FSJ Shoes

Does it ever happen to you that you spot an amazing pair of shoes on the runway or in a movie but are unable to find a similar design in any of the stores or online shopping portals that you frequent? This has definitely happened to me on more than one occasion when the shoes of my dreams remain just that and I never get to sport them in reality. However, I recently came across FSJ Shoes (fsjshoes.com), an international shoe brand that has a fascinating collection of well-made shoes catering to all the latest and timeless trends. They have a huge collection of beautifully designed shoes that range from sexy high heels to comfortable flats in all the colours one can imagine. Here are some of my favourite shoes from their website that are currently topping my summer shoe wishlist and are making me drool!

Gladiator sandals ruled the roost of shoe fashion in 2017 and they are definitely here to stay in 2018 as well. With bolder designs such as thigh-high gladiators adding an oomph factor to this footwear trend, my eyes are currently set on all gladiators, heeled or flat, calf-high or barely brushing the ankles – I want them all. Following are my favourite picks from FSJ Shoes.

1. Black Stiletto Heels Strappy Knee High Gladiator Sandals

Unlike most gladiator shoes that have thin straps, these black gladiator sandals have thicker straps running up to the mid-calves which make them unique. This pair would certainly be a head turner when paired with a floaty dress.

2. Gold Metallic Heels Open Toe Stiletto Heel Gladiator Sandals

Nothing spells sophistication like a pair of delicate gold stilettoes and these gorgeous gold gladiator sandals check all the right boxes for me. I can already envision myself pairing these with a royal blue dress for an evening out with friends.

3. Royal Blue Heels Suede Stilettos Gladiator Sandals

This striking blue gladiator shoe can add a pop of colour to any monochrome outfit and is also perfect for colour blocking with a bright yellow dress. An excellent choice for when you want to stand out in a crowd.

4. Brown Gladiator Sandals Knee-high Platform High Heels

Brown is a classic shoe colour and brown gladiator sandals look amazing with an all-white ensemble. This pair will look extremely flattering on anyone and can easily transition from day to night.

5. Grey Strappy Gladiator Sandals Suede Knee-high Lace-up Flats

On the days when you simply can’t bother with heels, this unique pair of grey gladiator flats will allow you to feel super stylish and comfy at the same time. A pair of denim shorts and a loose white shirt with these sandals is a practical yet chic look for the summer.

Not only are these wonderful designs from FSJ Shoes completely lust-worthy, the website also ships internationally, so you can easily get the best of global trends at your doorstep when you order a pair. I will definitely be investing in a number of shoes from this wishlist because FSJ Shoes provide runway designs at a fraction of the price. Which is your favourite pair from my list?
