summer look 20-4-19

In summer dressing up is no mean feat. You not only have to choose the right color to step out in the scorching heat but also want the overall look to be simple and effortless.

Although our celebrities always put their best foot forward and it feels like they don’t even know what a bad selfie looks like. Yet in this warm weather what our A-listers are wearing, is nothing less than magic.

We scroll down our Insta feed to hand-pick some of the most edgy summer looks our fave celebs have worn. Scroll on to see who made it to the list as it will help you set your own wardrobe for this season.

Twisted Rope Braid

This old school hairdo was not only spotted at the New York Fashion Week but we have also seen the likes of Kardashian and Beyonce following the trend. Recently, Sanam Saeed posted a picture on her Instagram donning this super cool summery hairdo.

Try your hands at it and say hello to your simple-yet-stunning hairstyle.

Large Hoop Earrings

Does the fashion of hoops ever go away? We don’t thinks so. The best way to add a feminine and cool touch to any of your summer look is to wear a pair of large hoop earrings.

Many celebs have been spotted wearing these statement hoop earrings. Perhaps, Hareem Farooqi can be described as the “Princes of Hoops”.  The actress has donned some amazing variations of hoops recently. Seems like she is also in love with this basic piece of jewelry just like us.

Fringes

To all the fringe lovers out there, we are glad to tell you that this trend is back in vogue. Be it in your earrings, bracelets or clothes, fringes give dimensions and textures when done right. The best part about them – they are feasible for every season.

Mawra Hocane can be seen donning a perfect evening look with fringe-d black sari. So, if fringes are not your thing, we believe it’s time to change that.

Print Mashup

If you want to stand out in the crowd, try wearing clashing prints together. Hania Aamir has mastered the art by going print head-to-toe. The unlikely combo will make you look like a perfect summer baby.

Prints also look dramatic with a neutral base. In fact, with a sophisticated neutral, even the minimalists can easily embrace the print on print trend this season.

Neon

Another trend that you need to incorporate into your wardrobe is the neon trend. If you want to shine brighter than the sun, add some neon.

Neon is simply an Instagram gold this season, you find it everywhere. See how smartly Sonya Hussyn has harmonized her neon green stilettos to lift up the otherwise casual summer look.

You can also add a subtle pop of neon in your wardrobe to stand out in your next beach trip. All in all, we can safely say that the neon trend is going to be sticking around for a while.

The Ultimate White Kurta

We fall in love with Mahira Khan every time she keeps it casual with her classic white kurtas and churidars. But, now it seems like white kurta has become a summer must-have as many other actresses have also been seen wearing the elegant style statement for their mid-day outings.

See how gorgeous Mansha Pasha looks in this chic white kurta and pants. We think her fans would have already decided to make this simple outfit their summer uniform.

Health Festival? We only know about food

Now Karachiites know all there is to know about food festivals but we never take care of our health, our health takes care of us. So, while LuckyOne Mall is renowned for attempting many Firsts, this particular one is immensely commendable.

RELATED: Sensitive Teeth: Causes and Precautions
We were recently made aware that for the first time in the history of any mall in Karachi, a health weekend is being held on the 15th, 16th and 17th of February 2019. The idea is to bring awareness to the general population regarding various diseases that exist.
We are gearing up to avail all the free on spot consultations by a panel of esteemed doctors and also get some screenings done.
On this occasion, we are informed that Dr. Kashif- one of the leading dentists of Karachi will also be there to inaugurate his new branch of Kashif Dental Clinics at the mall.

We are gearing up to avail all the free on spot consultations by a panel of esteemed doctors and also get some screenings done.

Did you know 8/10 people don’t know how to brush?

The festival boasts of having a little bit of everything for everyone out there; including eye-checkups and screenings. Initially, we were more inclined towards acquiring a free dietary chart for ourselves but our interest was piqued when Dr. Kashif mentioned that we have been brushing our teeth wrong the whole time.
Also turns out flossing that we attribute more to a ‘once-in-a-while practice’ should actually be a permanent part of our oral hygiene.
Make sure you head out to the Kashif Dental Clinic stall to learn about the fairly simple process of brushing. On all three days, Dr. Kashif along with his team will do a free tooth brushing demonstration and discuss the Do’s and Don’ts of flossing and other dental queries.

Along with everything stated above, Kashif Dental Clinic will be offering a flat 40% off on all dental treatments including scaling, laser fillings, crown, surgeries and even implants till the 10th of March 2019.

Why are you so sensitive?

Over the years we have noticed that some people are more sensitive than their teeth and some vice versa. For the latter, Dr. Kashif will be explaining the A-F of sensitivity, its origin and management. Apparently, the culprit usually is the plaque.

LuckyOne Mall is renowned for attempting many Firsts, this particular one is immensely commendable.

Plaque- which is a soft layer that keeps depositing on our teeth, needs to be removed by efficient brushing techniques, flossing and mouthwashes. Failure to remove plaque causes this layer to harden and form what is called calculus which then may even progress to diseases of the gum. Dr. Kashif will be explaining how and why majority of the population seems to suffer from sensitivity along with the right way to tackle it. A free on spot dental check-up and diagnosis shall also be provided to the visitors on all three days.

Opening Discounts!!

Along with everything stated above, Kashif Dental Clinic will be offering a flat 40% off on all dental treatments including scaling, laser fillings, crown, surgeries and even implants till the 10th of March 2019. With his state of art set up, all his patients shall receive quintessential dental treatment comprising of a digital OPG for correct diagnosis, hygienic instruments that are regularly sterilized.

RELATED: Avoid These for Strong and Healthy Teeth

Attention Brides & Grooms!

With the wedding season at its peak, a smile can add uncountable touches to the flawless portraits and candid shots. The pearly whites of various celebrities and politicians are envied by many but little did we know, that it is so attainable. With their power teeth whitening system you can get those perfect teeth too.

You don’t really need to visit the dentist-unless you want to keep your teeth

Much to our embarrassment, none of us could remember the last time we visited our dentist.
The golden rule to a healthy oral hygiene is to get a routine dental checkup every 6 months during which the dentist may advise you to get scaling done if required.
Scaling is a dental cleaning procedure that specifically targets all the surfaces of the teeth and extends into the gums to remove plaque and calculus. Dr. Kashif also explained to us the merits of the ultrasonic scaler device which offers deeper and better cleaning with zero discomfort.
Improper teeth scaling technique can lead to more damage than good.

No more DIYs for teeth whitening

Most of the general population encounters a problem of stained teeth. Teeth staining is a common incidence and can be efficiently dealt with through polishing. There is a flat 40% off on polishing so now is the time to get your teeth white and shining instead of experimenting with the various baking soda hacks.

With the opening of their new branch at LuckyOne, Kashif Dental is offering absolutely no cost related to their initial consultation so you better hurry up and get your appointment scheduled since it’s always good to start early. Also, it’s advised to take your little one to the dentist as soon as he turns one. A casual visit to the mall with your child now can easily turn into a convenient family visit to the dentist!

Sandra Oh, also known fondly as Christina from Grey’s Anatomy, hosted the 76th Annual Golden Globes along with Andy Samberg of SNL and Brooklyn Nine-Nine fame.

Even though the two made an awesome pair and hosted a fun-to-watch ceremony, Oh stole the show with two outstanding moments.

The first was when she took a minute to be real amidst the fun-host duties:

“If I could take this moment here in all honesty, I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change,” she said. “And I’m not fooling myself. I’m not fooling myself. Next year could be different. It probably will be. But right now, this moment is real. Trust me, it is real. Because I see you. All of these faces of change, and now, so will everyone else.”

She made this speech in reference to racial inclusion at awards ceremonies which is not always present. But this year, to her, marks a change in that particular discourse.

The second moment was when she won a Golden Globe award for her role in Killing Eve. At the announcement, her ADORABLE dad gave her a standing ovation while looking out at the sea of people in the audience. She went on to thank her parents in Korean in her speech. Asian families everywhere understand this moment of significance and we couldn’t help but shed a tear.

Basically, Sandra Oh ruled the Golden Globes this year!
