Comfort it is




 Salwaar and tunic: O.M.O
Shrug: PROMOD
Bag: ZARA
Heels: KENNETH COLE
Bangles: FLEA MARKET
Finger cuff: FOREVER 21


 It feels like ages since I have uploaded an outfit post. Believe me I was as excited as I was when I had done my  first outfit shoot a year back. 

This outfit was worn on a hot afterrnoon few days back. 
My motto was to  avoid jeans or anything sticking to my body. 
A day when comfort food and comfort clothing were dominating my mind.
 I put on my beige calf-length cut-work salwaar and paired it up with my sanskrit-script printed tunic and a brown short shrug. To complete the 'comfort look' I added a finger cuff, few bangles, a fringe bag and my most comfortable heels.

Thus, comfort look turned out to be a success and I was ready to grab comfort food*winks*.

What do you think: Garments with pointed bust

A still from Christian Dior's collection  of the House of Dior
Pointed Bust in the garment were first noticed in 1947 when  Christian Dior launched the first collection of the House of Dior. 
The signature shape was characterized by a below-mid-calf length, full-skirt, pointed bust, small waist, and rounded shoulder line. 
The pointed bust were a style statement then, as a sign of freedom for women. The styles were more bold as women were finally given the respect that they deserved.
As and when the years passed by, fashion took unexpected turns. The necklines became more and more deeper, the skirts became tighter and shorter, the shoulders became rounder and the tights became jeans and trousers.
Moving on to the pointed bust: In 1950-1980's, women would flaunt the pointed bust line with pride. The more prominent the bust line, the better it would be believed to be.
Later as generations passed by the bust line became rounder and thus women started choosing round bust line over the pointed one as they believed that round is 'in vogue' and also the style of garments demanded a little change.


Recently, I have noticed designers bringing back the Pointed bust line in the market again.
It is a true definition of 'History repeats itself' and in fashion it definitely does.

 I wonder how women are going to react to this.
 Are they going to be comfortable highlighting their bust line or this style is only going to be limited only to fashion shoots?
So ladies, leave a comment ad let me know what do you think about prominent/pointed bust line?
