This season Indian Cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur associated with Blenders Pride Glassware Fashion Tour, here’s what she had to say:

How do you feel about this collaboration with Blenders Pride Glassware Fashion Tour?

Harmanpreet: It’s a moment of pride for me, because, you know, I come from a Cricket background, it’s the first time that I’m going to be part of any fashion show. It’s a great moment for me, and it was the right time because this time, they are going to add some boost to the traditional outfit. And I think for me, it was the right time to come on the board and I thought, it would be great.

Do you feel like international fashion brands and sports go hand-in-hand but in India that is still to happen, at least for female athletes?

Harmanpreet: Yes. Because, we have always seen this point of view, we wear traditional clothes, otherwise sports have sporty look, at the fashion tour it was a different zone for me. I’m very, very excited to wear the SNCC collection.

Do you wish that brands supported female athletes more and brought them into the mainstream as they do with men?


Harmanpreet: Now with women’s cricket becoming more popular, female cricketers are getting more attention. The more we win, the more we get recognized. That’s when brands usually approach and support us, which is very encouraging.

Define your fashion style and your association with Blenders Pride?

Harmanpreet: I like to be more in my comfort zone which I can carry easily. The SNCC outfit that I am wearing right now is also very comfortable and has elements from my sport – cricket, which makes me love this outfit even more.

Minimalism is all about simplifying your life and focusing on what’s truly important. When it comes to apparel, this means choosing products that are comfortable, uncomplicated, and easy to wear. This mentality may also be extended to jewellery; by selecting pieces that are clean-cut and uncluttered, you can create stream-lined outfits that do not compete with your clothes but rather complement them.

Milind Mathur, Creative Director & Partner, Kohinoor Jewellers Agra, and Rohan Sharma, Managing Director of RK Jewellers South Extension 2 share simplistic jewellery to pair with your workwear:

Earrings: Once you need to include a sprint of colour, gemstone stud hoops are a simple choice. Littler studs around the 3mm check are particularly on-trend.

Necklace: V-neck tees and high-neck sweaters superbly scenery a stack of fine metal pieces of jewellery. Layer 2-3 chain and pendant neckbands of different lengths for an easily cool vibe.

Stackable Rings: Thin gold, white gold, and rose gold rings see particularly chic after you highlight many on each hand.

Detachable jewellery: Detachable jewellery has been in trend since the 90s as it offers varied styles to wear for any occasion. Detachable pieces are not too expensive when compared to regular ones and there is nothing to worry about in terms of wear and tear. However, one should be careful while wearing detachable jewellery as there is a minute chance of the pieces falling down.

Winter fashion styles

Joggers are also a great option if you’re looking to add a casual touch to an otherwise formal outfit. For example, you can wear a pair of black joggers with a loose-fitting shirt and a pair of sneakers to complete a casual winter outfit…reports Asian Lite News

Even though most people dread the cold season, it does come with some perks. Winter blues are a great excuse to invest in cozy clothing and accessories that will keep you warm for the rest of the year-and help you look stylish in the process! We all know that a winter wardrobe should be filled with natural fabrics like cotton, wool, and cashmere.

But while these materials are arguably the most practical when it comes to staying warm during chilly days, they also have a downside: they aren’t exactly as fashionable as other options. Fortunately, there are ways to stay warm and trendy at the same time! Santosh Srivastava, Marketing Manager at Numero UNO shares three different winter fashion styles that will get you through this season in style.

3 winter fashion styles to get you through the cold season.(photo:IANSLIFE)

The jogger

The jogger, essentially a loose-fitting pair of pants with a wide leg, has been gaining popularity in the fashion world for a few years now. This style is efficient for winter since it will allow you to move freely without feeling constricted by tight clothing. Whereas jeans are often too heavy to wear during the winter, joggers made of lightweight fabrics such as cotton, and linen, or synthetic materials such as polyester or spandex will keep you warm without weighing you down.

Joggers are also a great option if you’re looking to add a casual touch to an otherwise formal outfit. For example, you can wear a pair of black joggers with a loose-fitting shirt and a pair of sneakers to complete a casual winter outfit.

The fur-lined hoodie

Though the fashion world has been exploring the relationship between fur and style for many seasons, fur is still heavily associated with winter clothing. If you’re looking for a garment that will keep you warm without being too heavy or bulky, a fur-lined hoodie could be the perfect option. Unlike a regular hoodie, a fur-lined version will make sure you stay warm even on the chilliest days. This is because fur naturally traps warm air, which makes it a great insulating material.

Furthermore, a fur-lined hoodie is a great option if you’re looking for a way to play with textures in your winter outfit. While a regular hoodie would look too casual with a fancy pair of pants, a fur-lined one will allow you to add a playful accent to your outfit that will still look stylish.

The faux fur coat

The faux fur coat is an investment piece that will help you stay warm during the entire winter season. Unlike real fur, faux fur is cruelty-free and doesn’t shed-which means that it’s a great option for people who don’t want to wear real fur yet want to stay warm and stylish at the same time. Fur is a very visually appealing fabric, so a faux fur coat will instantly add a stylish touch to any winter outfit. These coats come in various colours, so you can choose one that will complement the rest of your wardrobe. A faux fur coat is a great option if you’re looking for a stylish yet functional garment to wear on the coldest days.

Furry Cardigan

By incorporating some brushed wool cardigans into the mix, you may liven up your winter wardrobe. It meets in the middle of casual and stylish, making it a wonderful alternative for your morning coffee runs when paired with fashionable jeans.

Classy Cable Knit Cardigan

During the course of a working day, as you flit from the office to meetings, a chic cable knit cardigan will keep you looking put together. Feel especially special in styles that have a sophisticated cut and fine workmanship; they will offer your day a positive lift.

Granny square crochet

It’s adorable, unique, and a much-needed burst of brightness and colour during the gloomy winter months if it doesn’t look like your nan knitted it for you in front of Countryfile.
