Transitional weather periods require transitional wardrobe. And one of the transitional weather absolute favourite staples is the trench coat. From royal, Kate Middleton to reality star Kim Kardashian West and blogger/ journalist Pandora Sykes (you are seeing the expansion of the fashion spectrum here, right?) are opting for multiple variations of the trench coat. Whether you choose the Bottega Veneta one that Lauren Bacall wore in the SS17 show or the uber trendy winter floral print at Michael Kors, this piece is bound to add more than a few points of elegance to your look. 


There's great variety in form but most importantly in the fabric. High gloss details or full on shiny leather trenches. Tightly cinched or left in a looser silhouette. One of the most spot on colours for trench coats this season is khaki, but get ready for some impressive numbers in red, off-white, camel and baby blue. 

Check our exclusive edit of the trench coats you need to own this season!

Sienna Miller walked into Wimbledon this year in sartorial splendour. Wearing a Ralph Lauren lemon yellow sundress, the star of the recent Young Vic play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”, emulated modern elegance. 

Sienna steered away from the cliche tennis whites and garden party florals and swapped her chiffon and silks for linen. Linen is strange choice for some, an old fashioned one perhaps. However, contrary to the grandmother's-wardrobe association we once made, linen is on the rise and is a must-have this summer! Matched with the right accessories, it echoes both cool authenticity and summer sophistication. 

Do not fear, you don’t have to be Sienna to pull off this casual classic. Lucy Williams, the ultimate style influencer is sporting linen. The eponymous label Three Graces and Paloma Wool as well as queen of e-commerce cool, store “Lisa says Gah” and blogger Song of Style are wearing it. 

We are delighted that some key fashion players have designed some beautiful pieces, from palazzo trousers to crop tops and sundresses. There is something for everyone! Buy a linen sundresses or crop top and high wasted skirt and pair with cat eye sunglasses or dramatic tassel earrings. Do wear linen the contemporary way and style it with some cool accessories for a relaxed and laid-back look!

It seems as if since the beginning of time a magic fairy godmother awarded all French women with effortless style and elegance. From 60's Brigitte Bardot to Vanessa Paradis and Jeanne Damas there's no denying that Parisian chic is very specific yet unattainable. But what does that mean for the rest of us? We here at Shopcade have aimed to dissect the authentic French style and follow a few simple rules to nail it this summer. 


Beauty & Hair 

The first rule of the School of French style is that there simply are no general rules. Developing your individual style is part of the process. This process never fails to involve mineral toning water, eye cream and a great SPF cream. A thorough beauty routine with quality products makes all the difference for French women as they wear minimal make up. "I only wear red lipstick everyday, "said Jeanne Damas in a recent interview for Man Repeller. French girls emphasize on taking care of their skin instead of covering it up with endless layers of make up. They wear little foundation, use hair spray for a sexy out of bed look and have a signature scent! 

Show off your Pins 

Baring your legs as much as possible like French style blogger Camille Charriére is another Parisian staple. Sport your mini summer dresses, vinyl red skirts, LBDs or uber chic culottes which are basically very cool and elegant ways to nail French chic. 

Where Did You Get That Shirt? 

All Parisian girls own a great white shirt in their wardrobe as it's ultimately versatile and oh so chic. You can literally pair it with anything that may hang in your wardrobe: from jean bell bottoms to a pencil skirt, a pair of denim shorts, with smart trousers at the office even worn loosely over your swimsuit at the beach. Go for a white crisp shirt fitted or oversized and try a Breton design - another French girl favourite. 

Quality outerwear 

Even though we're in July we can recognise a quality outerwear item in all seasons. From a boxy blazer, to an elongating raincoat or a simple rock n roll biker jacket the options are endless.. Take cues from French chic and really look which outerwear items will look best with your wardrobe essentials. 

Comfy flats 

Especially for daytime, comfort is key to the laissez-faire nonchalant Parisian look. So invest in ballet flats, chic sandals, espadrilles and white trainers to elevate your everyday look. They can really romanticise an outfit instantly. 

Accessories 

When it comes to accessories they should always include a great hat, basket bag, earrings, and a quality watch. Less is definetely more so "Before you leave the house, take a look in the mirror, and take one thing off", as the mother of Parisian chic Coco Chanel used to say. 

Style icons 

Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, Vanessa Paradis and Clemence Poesy are among many of the greats. For new sources of inspiration, follow Parisian blogger Camille Charrière, Jeanne Damas, Camille Rowe, Lily Rose Depp and Louise Follain on Instagram. 

Scroll down below and see how you can nail French style this summer!

Summer is probably one of the best seasons to show off broderie detailing. By broderie we mean those refined almost lacey tops and summer dresses in angelic white, and dreamy eggshell tones that perfectly compliment sun-kissed skin.

This year broderie anglaise took Instagram by storm when the white cotton sleeveless top with lace trim by Reformation was seen on every celebrity Instagrammer under the sun from Jeanne Damas, to Pandora Sykes while Danielle Bernstein and Marianna Hewitt donned the cute mini dress version.

Whether you're planning to attend a wedding, a festival, a racing event or even a casual BBQ with friends, you simply can't go wrong with the elegant nonchalance of a broidered top that blends wonderfully into any summer occasion.

Taking cues from blogger extraordinaire Pandora Sykes on how to nail the summer day look, don a broderie crop top with a pair of gold shorts and white espadrilles. Finish the look with your favourite golden bangles, earrings, black Ray Bans and a bold red lip. 

For the ultimate beach to bar look, pair your broderie mini dress with a romantic and oh-so-chic basket bag, a pair of espadrille sandals, oversized sunnies and a floppy straw hat. Add a pair of big gold hoops, and a pendant to amp up your laissez-faire summer outfit. 

If you're planning to attend a festival this summer then opt for a broderie jacket with a funky crop top (even your bikini top will do) and a pair of your favourite wide-legged jeans. Top the look off with a leather cross body bag and a vast array of your most colourful accessories. 

For a romantic date night try combining the innocent broderie top with a sexy red mini skirt. Finish your flirty look with high stiletto heels and your favourite miniature crossbody chain bag.

How will you style your broderie outfit this summer?

French girls are the epitome of chic. They are well put together, have great style and a nonchalant cool attitude. No wonder Parisian model Jeanne Damas and blogger Camille Charrière have over half a million Instagram followers! Dressing like these gorgeous creatures may look effortless, but its not easy for us Brits. Looking like you’ve just walked out the Chanel show comes naturally to these girls, but for the rest of us, it requires some education. Luckily, we’ve got some tips, and some style essentials that will transform you from Brit cool to Parisian Chic, in just a few clicks! 


Beauty routine: French girls are very natural, the focus is on skincare and just enough makeup to highlight your features without over doing it. Jeanne Damas, in an interview for Man Repeller said “ I only wear red lipstick everyday, nothing else.” She also uses Nuxe moisturiser and Leonor Greyl Shampoo. French girls work on their base resulting in amazing skin, hair and body. Using a cleansing milk is great for getting rid of impurities in the skin, and a healthy diet and moderate exercise is key to keeping in shape. They wear little foundation, have a signature haircut and a sexy scent for that extra je ne sais quoi! 

What to wear: Its all about dressing for both day and night. Do wear a fancy dress in the daytime, but downplay it with some casual espadrilles. Wear jeans and simple t-shirt and add some spice with statement earrings.  Wrap dresses, mini skirts, blazers, breton stripes and florals are key to dressing a la française. 

Style icons: Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, Vanessa Paradis and Clemence Poesy are among many of the greats. For new sources of inspiration, follow Parisian blogger Camille Charrière, Jeanne Damas, Camille Rowe, Lily Rose Depp and Louise Follain on Instagram.   

The bottom line: Be feminine and comfortable. Sounds easy right?

La saison des festivals arrive, et si vous êtes aussi impatientes que nous (on blâme Coachella), vous préparez déjà certainement votre look !


Et cette année, on laisse la couronne de fleurs au placard et on opte pour un style plus subtil mais toujours 100% tendance.

Notre experte make-up Bebym a sorti ses pinceaux et nous donne tous ses conseils beauté dans la vidéo ci-dessus.

Étape 1
On  commence par appliquer sous les yeux un anti-cernes mélangé au fond de teint.
On unifie ensuite avec une nouvelle couche de fond de teint sur l’ensemble du visage.
Corriger les imperfections avec un correcteur de teint.

Étape 2
Appliquer un fard doré/cuivré sur la paupière mobile et au ras des cils inférieurs.

Étape 3
Intensifier avec un fard brun sur le ras des cils supérieurs et inférieurs.

Étape 4
Appliquer un crayon doré sur la paupière mobile, au niveau du coin interne de l’oeil. Venir ensuite l’étirer vers l’extérieur au pinceau. 

Étape 5
Intensifier le regard avec un mascara volume sur les cils supérieurs et inférieurs.

Étape 6
Modeler le teint avec une poudre foncée, que l’on étire à partir de l’oreille pour donner un effet de creux.

Étape 7
Appliquer un blush rose sur les joues.

Étape 8
Et la touche originale: coller des stickers au dessus du sourcil dans la même teinte que le maquillage. Commencer l’application au quart du sourcil puis suivre la ligne.

Vous voilà prêtes à danser toute la journée avec un maquillage léger, mais parfaitement dans le thème.

Our favorite ‘Jas Sagu’ of ‘Woman I Love You’ shares with us what style is to her. She believes it’s all about picking up something off the street, injecting it with brilliance and making it look like a million bucks. ‘WILY’ is all about creating magic and dreams. Know more about this Wonder Woman and her tips on winter styling and routine here. 


1) Your style is very sports luxe yet classy and lady like. Tell us more about it. 
My moods are constantly influencing the way I dress. I don't stick to a particular style, I like to experiment without having to compromise on comfort. In simple words my style reflects my state of mind. You’re likely to see me in androgynous, urban chic and boho styles. 

2) What made you want to start a blog?
The idea of documenting my emotions and thoughts behind why I wear what I wear & how I feel about it :-) 

3) Name some of your favourite bloggers and why?
There are so many talented bloggers I follow. Among the Indian bloggers, on top of my list is Rhea Gupte. She writes like a dream and I love her aesthetics. The Glamourai, trop rouge and Camila Coelho are some of the international Fashion /beauty bloggers I like. 

4) Top 5 steal suggestions for fall according to you
Thigh high boots, Classic duster coat, Pinstripes Pant suit, Slick back hair and Graphic Scarves 

5) You have the biggest fetish for.......................?
Handbags & Sunglasses 

6) Name 5 beauty essentials for fall. 
A good moisturiser, Nude lipsticks, Hand cream by l'occitaine, My current fav perfume by Carolina Herrera "Good Girl' and Marsala/red nail polish 

7) One trend that you've never tried but would love to and why?
The paper bag waist pants. I love them but don't have the body frame to pull them off as I need to be tad bit slimmer from my hips. #goals 

8) What do you think is a big fashion hit this fall?
I'm personally liking the pant suits and gold metallic palettes 

9) What is the hardest part about being a blogger and how do you keep up with it?
Its very important to keep reinventing your work or else it gets redundant. You have to keep working on yourself constantly and be consistent. That can be challenging but if you love your job it eventually all works well. 

10) Who is your favourite style icon and why?
Marilyn monroe & Victoria Beckham

Our influencer for the week is the well-known stylist Prayag Menon (Insta handle: @prayagm_v). Prayag’s foray into the industry was incidental when he began styling shoots on his own at home, as an outlet for creative exploration. Completely self-taught and with no formal training, Prayag draws inspiration from his perspective on lifestyle, aspiration and the people he interacts with. His work resonates a sense of minimalism and timelessness. Read on to know more about him. 


1) Being a commercial pilot, how did you get into styling? 
A) I was always interested in fashion. Though the leap from pilot to stylist was a happy accident! My partner (photographer Porus Vimadalal) who’d recently entered the industry at the time was to collaborate on a test shoot with a stylist, but she had to cancel a day prior due to unforeseen circumstances; and I offered to jump in to style the shoot. I remember everyone really liked the shoot when it was out, and subsequent to that Porus encouraged me to start styling. I also started getting offers to work on other shoots and there was no looking back since. I am completely self-taught and have learnt consistently from each shoot I’ve worked on. 

2) What’s your personal style all about? 
A) Clean and restrained mostly. I like incorporating a sense of balance in terms of colours and silhouette. 

3) Do you remember your first fashion shoot? Tell us more about it. 
A) It was in the summer of 2013. We worked with some beautiful Roberto Cavalli gowns that a friend had recently acquired. The model was the beautiful Rasika Navare; now one of my closest friends. We shot a series of pictures in a studio and I still have that shoot in my portfolio; it's classic and beautiful. 

4) Who are the photographers you love working with and why? 
A) My partner Porus Vimadalal is definitely someone I love working with the most. I have learnt a great deal from him ever since I got into fashion. We have grown together in the industry and our aesthetics are completely aligned, which makes every shoot experience with him seamless and wonderful. 

5) What are some of the biggest challenges that you face as a stylist? 
A) One of the biggest challenges is dealing with commercial clients and a set brief which is not always familiar to your aesthetic. I have learnt from experience that it is necessary to stand by your opinion and choose how much you want to budge. It's fine to meet someone half way, but provided its mutual. 

6) What are some of the things you do to get inspired for a concept shoot? 
A) My work is straightforward in terms of fashion being the focal point. Inspiration arrives via many mediums; it could be a story I read somewhere, or someone I meet, or just my imagination. I then pick a trend which appeals to me and add it to connect the story. Conceptualisation and ideation are an organic process for me, I don't spend time consciously researching/studying or following a particular method. 

7) What are you currently working on? 
A) To name a few projects; I have a fashion editorial that is out in this month’s issue of ELLE India. I have also styled Verve Magazine's February cover story, and then I've worked on Miuniku's SS17 lookbook along with some more exciting projects releasing over the next few months. 

8) What would be a dream collaboration for you? 
A) I'd like to work with Marion Cotillard. 

9) What or who has greatly influenced your work and how? 
A) The women I've met in my life have played a huge role in the development of my work. These aren't necessarily women who are in the fashion industry; they come from diverse backgrounds. My relationships with them influenced and heightened my love for understated elegance, the idea of a lifestyle that is more cultivated and refined, not ostentatious. Through my work, I like depicting women as assertive and effortless; attributes inspired from the women in my life - independent and fearless, who live/have lived life on their own terms, and who make their own life choices. 

10) What’s the best thing about being a stylist? 
A) For me; the best thing is how work doesn't feel like work. It is something I truly enjoy, and never tire of. 

11) Favorite fall trend you can’t seem to get over? 
A) Velvet! 

12) What advice would you give to a young stylist who is just starting out? 
A) Start easy, explore different sensibilities before you settle into what your comfort zone is. It's totally okay to make mistakes and learn from them. It’s important to constantly seek inspiration in what’s around you. The most important pearl of wisdom I was imparted with, and that I'd like to share is: Do not seek approval from others. Take constructive advice but in the end just do what you really believe in. Your style should be an extension of who you are as a person.

However glamorous, life of a blogger can be crazy busy and exhausting if you're looking to build networks and continuous collaborate. Every day, we head out with our head up high, but return home tired and completely drained of energy, so much that it shows on our faces! It's why we asked fashion blogger Pallavi of Moda Ninja for a few tips, because no matter when we see her, there's always a refreshing glow on her face! 


Read on for a few beauty tips from her and also to know a little bit about her life. 

Shopcade HQ (SHQ): What do you do? 
Pallavi (P): I am a part time fashion blogger, part-time fashion consultant and sustainable development consultant. 

SHQ: How do you best describe your style 
P: My style is a mix of boho chic and androgyny. 

SHQ: Your fail-safe outfit/product 
P: Shirt dress in bright colours like red or yellow, can easily dress it up with heels and jewellery or dress down with a chambray shirt and oxfords or casual with wedges and some neck piece! 

SHQ: One trend you are loving at the moment 
P: I have ligament tear in both my ankles so I love the 'sneakers with everything' trend. 

SHQ: One trend/product you would never wear, if any 
P: *smirks* Crocs! 

SHQ: Long fashion week days - what are your tips? 
P: 
1. Wash and blow-dry hair first day so you save time for next 3 days. 
2. Wear comfortable shoes 
3. Carry battery back up, body spray and mint! 

SHQ: Things you can't leave without when heading to an event? 
P: Battery backup, credit card, body spray, lip balm, mint, notebook pen and visiting cards. 

SHQ: With this fast paced lifestyle, any tips for skincare? 
P: 
1. Hydrate your body, drink lots of water with a slice of lemon and mint to keep up with socialising at parties and oily food! 
2. Take off your makeup, however tired you are after the Diwali parties. I apply aloe vera gel fresh from plant with honey on my face, it is loaded with antioxidants and is good for sensitive skin and sunburns. 

Does this make your life easier? Well, it definitely helped us a lot!
