The Collection Named ‘Chaya’

The word Chaya is derived from the Sanskrit origin meaning, “Shades of colors”. Just as the title goes, the collection is purely about how colors define fashion.

The only three leg workout routines you need to know to get those sexy legs!

February is almost here. The month of Love as they call it brings more than just red roses to you. It brings the season of Spring, pleasant air to breathe and lot of sunshine. Spring breakers at this time plan beach parties, pool parties, lunches and brunches and fashion brands showcase their Spring/Summer collection and women get ready to flaunt some skin as they work out before investing in the new designer collections.

So as you prepare to wear the slits, minis, and mirco minis, we decided to help you a bit in getting those perfect legs without having to go through much. These tried and tested workout routines can be done at home without you having to lift anything.

1. Basic squat and kicks – This particular exercise does not only workout your lower body but it also is a full body workout. 4 sets of 15 repetitions will do wonders for you. Start with keeping your body straight, your stomach sucked in and tight, end in squat position, rise up and kick your leg sideways up till your hip level, return to basics afterwards and do the same thing with the other leg.

2. Plie heel raise – You may not be a ballerina, trust us, you do not have to be but you still can do this exercise using a chair at home. If you do this exercise strictly without taking break then 4 sets of 10 repetition each will leave you gasping for breath. What you got to do is – Get on your toes while keeping your feet wide apart, start lowering down into a plie squat position keeping your heel up and toes firm on the ground. Keep your arms extended and do not rest your heels on the ground. Take support using a chair if you are unable to balance yourself. Breath in and out while doing this. You will see this difference in your legs and derriere (must we say) in no time.

3. Squat and jump – Another intense workout routine which helps the entire body burn fat. Start from the basic squat position, bend down then throw yourself up reaching for the ceiling, land safely on your toe bending your knee like a spring. Do this for 30 to 40 seconds without giving break to see best results.

So these three workout routine should be enough for you to be able to flaunt those legs and get the men crazy for you and hey if you are looking for the perfect dress to showcase your long and well toned legs then we have the solution for you.

Confused about resort wear?

Trust us, you are not the only ones who are confused about resort wear and trust us one more time as we say this – Resort wear is not only about bikinis, monokinis and hot pants. It is much more than that. Would you ever consider wearing a resort wear to a date? To an evening party? Or your friend’s wedding or your own wedding? Sounds intriguing rite?

Resort wear was started as a fashion trend only for the elite, the upscale and affluent customers who preferred spending their post Christmas weeks in exotic locations. Very recently the trend has been accepted as a year round fashion clothing style and is being accepted widely on the runway around the world.

Resort wear is usually made of soft and high quality fabrics like cotton, silk, georgette or poplins. Something which is very easy to wear, breathable and quick to pack.

We live in a country which is in a fashionably developing stage, hence the knowledge of resort wear is still on a growing step. People forget the fact that beaches are not only about skimpy swim wears, hats and giant sunglasses. So in this post we will learn about the segregation of resort wear.

Did you know that resort wear can be divided into three styles? Resort formal, resort semi formal and resort casual? We bet your jaws are touching your office table right now. We don’t blame you.

1. Resort formal – Something exquisite, something chic and elegant, something which accentuates your lady like features. A resort formal wear could be a long maxi dress, a flowy skirt or a body hugging tunic. Anything that would be perfect for a date night at the beach, to attend a formal family function or to go for a little sophisticated social evening.

2. Resort semi formal – Something that would go from brunch till dinner date. Something which can be worn with flats and high heels as well. Like a sun dress, knee length skirt and crop top.

3. Casual resort wear – Baggy georgette or silk pants, paired with strapless top, match it with a flat or wedges. Casual resort wear is perfect to go for shopping with your friends, take an evening stroll around the beach, or go just any other random activity.

When it comes to creating your own style, there is no end to innovation so you can mix and match and make you resort ensemble even more interesting by adding accessories to it.
