The tricky winters might trick you so much so that you tend to choose dull color palletes from your wardrobe. Or it could be the other way round where you jump into prompt shopping when you are heading out for a visual treat in winter. Either of them are a complete no - no to me. I never burn my pockets to look jazz in winters , instead I work on choosing the perfect color splash to block the winter twilights. I work very carefully on my wardrobe choices during the times that I think can push me to indecisiveness. I prefer not to run around shopping malls tiring myself with over whelming choices. The best thing in my observation is to spend some time running through my wardrobe to pick up a color mix that works better for me to capture perfect frames.
For this project , I chose two brands that never made me regret for any of my outfit choices in the previous experiences. "Recycling" , Yes recycling your wardrobe in a quite very smart way is not an art but some times a spur of the moment beauty. I often keep myself in that space and enjoy the outcomes. The two brands that I worked on are " Sheinofficial" and "Forever21". If you are a frequent shopper at Forever21 you might have mastered their bright colors. Two looks that are carefully choosen for this post are not any different or exceptional but for me they are just perfect choices anybody could make to brighten up your dark winters.
In the look 1, I have chosen a burgundy sweater from sheinofficial and a black velvet skirt from forever21 which were a part of my wardrobe since last year and I have fallen in love ever since. They look perfect in the hidden sun that throws divine light in winters. And the snow in the background just compliments!.
In the Look 2, I have chosen a red skater dress from forever21 and threw a bright yellow bell sleeve top that perfectly complimented. Reds ain't for summers , they work magic in winters with the white snow in the background. The bright yellow at first might make you feel like you have made a loud choice , but it isn't. Loud is the new cool in winter. If you are an insta freak or a picture lover they do magic in your gallery.
That's it for the winter lookbook guys. I sure will come up with new looks in the winter and I thank these brands for helping me curate my perfect winter looks.
Happy Holidays my dear beautiful readers. Thanks a lot for all the lovely emails and enquiries on the outfits. I promise to keep up with extending the support to provide the answers to all your questions and will continue to help with choosing the perfect brands.

This winter's dramatic fluctuation in weather is trying to make me a couch potato. Yet I keep myself on toes this season. Since fatigue is what keeps me unhappy . Winter's wardrobe essentials and never ending winter shopping is tiring. I would want to avoid doing that constantly. Reusing your summer wardrobe is not a whole new different or unexplored tangent. But let me remind you that out and out summer wardrobe can be used or recycled to covert them into winter wardrobe.
We have all been at that phase where we never wanted to reuse those outfits that are photographed already once. But that is not a solution to sport different looks. Playing with your personal style and curating different looks with the same outfits is a fun task and you will enjoy doing it. This time I chose my suspenders from my wardrobe which are my favorite summer chic #ootds and converted them to use as my winter #ootds. Layering is the interesting part in winter , so let us layer our summer outfits in winter. I felt my suspenders aren't just for summer , I would enjoy wearing them even in winter. So i have Paired them up with a set of thermal pants and a full sleeve tee shirt unlike I do short sleeves or no sleeves in summer.
If you have similar outfits in your summer wardrobe do not scare away from reusing them. Below are the two looks with suspenders. I get inspired by recyclable fashion and blur my boundaries and strike off the statements to sport some fun looks by season. Experimenting with fashion brings out the best personal style , so do not stop experimenting this season.
I hope you guys have enjoyed this post. I will get back with another interesting post soon.

The December month is here. And I am personally a December lover, Since it is my birthday month as well as the month I tied a knot. Love spills and surprises all this month keep me hydrated with happiness. So this month I have decided to document all my winter looks for you guys. Ever Since I have turned my blog into a monthly journal emails came pouring in to write for different topics. I am catching up the speed to accommodate all the topic requests.
If you follow me on Instagram , You already know that I love minimalist fashion and style. Writing about affordable and accessible styles has been the agenda since day one on The Chic Iconic, even though I treat myself with occasional gifts and luxury brands.This time I chose to give myself a recyclable winter look along with providing some tips to you guys about how I repeat my summer wardrobe to style my winter.
Below is what I will be doing for most of this winters.
1. Pull out all my shirt dresses which are above my knee length from the wardrobe.
2. Pair them up with stockings , jeans or leggings.
3. Turning my casual look to formal or party look , I will be adding some shine/glitter in the form of accessories like gold strapped watch or earrings or an evening clutch.
4. Providing an accent to the whole outfit pairing up with a pop color. Can be either a bomber jacket or a winter coat in color pop.
The below Forest Green shirt dress is from Express and most of my shirt dresses are from Express. So this season if you have few pieces of shirt dresses in the wardrobe pull them out and reuse.
Keep following me on Instagram for everyday style files , lifestyle updates and daily perks. This winter look book series will be continued until the end of December. So keep watching this space for more looks this winter.

An Indulging Spa Experience....In Collaboration with "Anthony Vince Nail Spa" at one loudon , Virginia
Isn't it time to indulge yourself with an ultimate spa experience?.... Since the holiday time is round the corner , its time to treat yourself with some extra care and pampering. Today's blog post is about a soothing experience at "Anthony Vince Nail Spa" at one loudon , Virginia. I am glad to have been invited to the spa's grand opening and had the best experience ever.
Anthony Vince Nail Spa is a Spa chain established in 2004 with multiple locations in multiple states within United States. They provide irresistible spa services to relax and rejuvenate yourself. As soon as I walked in , I have been received by "Kelli" the manger who walked me through the spa decorated as a Bride. The Christmas theme and well furnished interiors are a feast to the eye. The Spa is very vast that it can accommodate 70-100 customers at a time each and every member of the staff never forgets to give you a very welcoming smile.
It is very much a package when it is more than a nail spa and provide additional spas services in one place. You can find the different kinds of services they provide at their website : www.anthonyvincenailspa.com/. Today the services I have chosen are the " Royal Hot Stone Spa Pedicure" - pampers your tired feet with ultimate spa experience with an extended lower leg and foot massage. They use warm smooth rocks to gently loosen your stiff muscles and that is my favorite part , as i am personally a fan of hot stone massages. And further warm oil massage and hot towel wrap is the final touch of luxurious experience. For manicure I have chosen their " No-chip gel nail polish" service and "mai" has done a wonderful job on my nails providing a soothing massage with creams. Additionally they also parties for birthdays and weddings. please contact the front desk at (571)-207-7060 for more details.
Finally , If you are local to Virginia and are looking for a soul satisfying spa experience "Anthony Vince Nail Spa" is one such place to visit and once visited it would never be a one time visit. Some business Conquers with their products , some with their services . But this one leaves no stone unturned to conquer the customers heart.
