EDITORS’ PICKS

2 weeks ago | BY Huma Hazarika Sharma

We heart it, you cart it

Spring is finally in full bloom (literally!), and we can’t get enough of all the happy, bright colours that we see everywhere around us, and on our clothes. Sit tight, relax, while we give you the (floral) lowdown on what’s trending, what’s big this month.

TIES THAT BIND
holding1
Spring dressing is all about embracing your zany side. So what if you’re a guy? Don’t let that stop you from wearing a bright printed tie in the brightest pink ,and flowers, lots of ‘em.

BOW-TIE-WOW
holding2
The perfect summer wedding accessory for a guy – the bow-tie can give your ensemble an instant kick in the right direction. Though we’d recommend you save these babies for more formal shindigs ‘cos a regular event accessory they are not.

HAND ME THAT BAG, PLEASE
holding3
A girl can never have too many handbags – isn’t that right girls? And not having a floral one in spring is a tad blasphemous (okay we exaggerate a smidge, but it’s a wee bit true no?). Go out, spoil yourself, and grab the most floral one you can find #BagLadies

SWIM QWEENS
holding4
The best part about spring apart from the happy vibes and ze birds, bees and flowers are the invites to the endless pool parties, and the fact that we can burn off the winter calories doing something we love, instead of being trapped indoors at a gym.

SWIM CHAMPS
holding5
Now there’s no better way to cool off in the summers and show off those abs (or the lack thereof ‘cos you should just own what you got) than in a pool or a beach, are we right guys?

JEWELS OF SPRING
holding6
Little do we realise it, but jewellery is often the best friend we never thought we had. She can add sparkle to our dreariest days & clothes, so make them big, bright & floral when it comes to spring.

BEAUTY IS IN THE AIR
holding7
The sudden change from the cold to the warm can wreak havoc on our skin, and you’ve got to tweak your beauty regime to include more summer-friendly products that carry lighter notes of zesty lemon and orchids, and the list goes on.

MOVIE: BEACH BUM
holding8
Starring everyone from Matthew McConaughey to Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Martin Lawrence, Jonah Hill & Zac Efron, Beach Bum is another one those movies that’ll go down in stoner history as a must-watch. And while it’s been panned by most, we would still totally catch it for the hilarious misadventures of Moondog (yup, that’s who McConaughey plays) and his many pals #420Approved

FOOD: SRI LANKAN
holding9
Sri Lankan cuisine officially topped the list of the best food trends in 2019. Given the tourist hub it’s become the last few years without letting go of its soul, we aren’t surprised because everyone who’s tried it can’t get enough of the fresh seafood and those larger-than-large crabs, and the equally delish vegetarian jackfruit & beetroot curries eaten with rice and pol roti, and of course the fan fave – the to-die-for egg hopper.

DRINKS: ZERO-WASTE COCKTAILS
holding10
Waste not, want not they always told us, and the last year or two, it’s begun to sink in even more thanks to chumps like Trump that have turned us all into saviors of the Earth in rebellion to him and his fools. And, while we are out saving the earth, we like to unwind every once in a while with cocktails that are completely zero-waste and made of leftover food like lemon rinds, orange zest and the like instead of procuring ‘em fresh #TheOnlyWayIsSustainable if we are to survive folks.
