Top 5: Picks from Mantra

July 8, 2013

 

I’ve already introduced you guys to Mantra and shared their fabulous Summer shoot here, but I thought I would give you all a closer look at what exactly is available at the outlets.

Here are my Top 5 picks from Mantra’s latest collections, in store now. You can make price inquires on their Facebook page here

Mantra fashion Pakistan Karachi

 

1. This hot pink tribal necklace is bang on-trend. I’m envisioning this with a white tee and some crazy printed pants. The right accessories can take a simple look so far.

2. These sexy spiked wedges come in one of the year’s hottest hues: cobalt blue. The curved heel and suede-y texture are perfect when paired with cropped trousers or a sexy skirt.

3. Stripes are major this year. We already know that. So everyone needs to get this striped blazer asap.

4.  I just wrote of my love of yellow earlier today so it should come across as no surprise that this clutch is on my list.  The faux python, McQueen inspired clutch is perfect for those who don’t want to spend oodles of cash.

5. Neon earrings!!! I believe statement earrings are on their way to replace statement necklaces as the must have accessories for this year. These neon Tom Binns inspired earrings are rocking my world. How amazing will these look with a messy top knot or fishtail braid?

Anddd one more surprise for you guysies.

    Since this tee is a fashion statement, I’d definitely love to have it in my wardrobe someday. Will wear it with my striped palazzo and my trademark; a funky hijab soon :)

    Already following you on Ig for a while now – followed Mantra too!

    I’d style the black Geek Tee with faux black leather pants, and neon orange wedges and clutch.
    But if I were to win the white Geek Tee *Grin* – I’d wear it with white cropped pants, pink statement necklace and clear pink studded sandals.

    Hey, love your blog! Visit it quite regulary! I would style this Tee with either a high waisted skirt, probably a striped one a maroon colored one, a knotted skinny belt and some kick ass leather khussas. Add a fedora to it and I’m ready to hit Koel Cafe for their delish sikanjabeen. Another option would be with printed palazzos, thong sandals, messenger bag and John Lennon shades. There’s so much that I could do with it! Endless options!

  • Reply fatima sadik July 9, 2013 at 1:52 PM

    The shirt accompanied with skin tight jeans, red pumps, nerdy spectacles, curled short hair and rep lipstick.

    I love Mantra alot, but as I don’t live in Karachi, the Mantra outlit is a bit far from my area. I’ve loved this GEEK tee since ages and seeing a giveaway over it made me participate. The way I’d wear this t-shirt are 3, #1: I’d wear a white skinny jean and put the t-shirt’s end in it with a nice classy red belt because that would contrast with the black and white combination.
    #2: I’d wear it with black skinny jeans, and just loosely let it hang and hold the sleeves, giving it a very classy sleeve-less look which is very in these days and pair it up with a studded necklace.
    #3: I’m gonna wear it with a high-waisted plazo, and pair it up with a classy prada bag and tie my hair in a bun.
    That’s all! I really wanna win this! lets hope for the best :)

    i find this geek tee super cool and too fabulous! i went crazy since the first time mantra posted about it and i cant believe this is a chance for me to win it. most importantly, its a pick by Amara Javed who has such a great sense of style like oh my god i cant believe what is going to happen to me if i ever won this GEEK shirt. if i did, i think i’d pair it with my black and white houndstooth tights and my black raybans to give a geeky look. and i’d look fabulous with staright hair and a red lipstick on it. please let me win it xoxo

  • Reply Sana July 9, 2013 at 7:19 PM

    Adore your picks! And that McQueen clutch <3 If only I could actually buy one, haha.
    As for Geek Tee, I have seen way too many styles. I'd pair it with high waist-ed printed pants, maybe black and white (even maybe Aztec something print?), ankle-strap heel to prep up the look, shades and bag. When wearing it at home, I'd prolly throw over pajama bottoms and my nerdy glasses! xD

    If I were to win this tee *finger crossed*, I’d pair it with a bohemian skirt, a pair of flip flops, long necklace, some funky bangles and complete it with my neon headscarf and head to the beach.
    In my work place- being a doctor, I’d style it with my striped trouser coupled with a black headscarf, a pair of black flats and complete the look with a lab coat.
    I can wear this tee in a dental conference where I’d pair it with black colored pencil ankle length skirt, a neon (preferably an orange blazer), a black silk scarf and a pair of black kitten heels.
    On a casual day, would pair this geek tee with a high rise jeans and a pair of black ankle boots or sneakers and a colored headscarf.

    This tee is so in these days! I’ll wear it with a Mexican skirt and heels. (the one in your pic, i have them) I’ll curl my hair with red lipstick. This would be a rock on as I’m leaving for Thailand on 30th August for a 2 month vacation! I’ll complete the tee with gold statement necklace from Mantra!! Any tee (black or white) will make my wardrobe extremely pleased ;)

    Hi Amara,

    Have just become a recent leader of your blog and really like your well-written and thoughtful content! I had heard of Mantra before but through this giveaway got the chance to explore their products further via their FB page – they have some great, on point stuff on the offer.
    Here goes my $0.02– also keep in mind any of high end pieced mentioned below can easily be substituted by a high street (or even Forever 21) alternative!

    For a casual, every day, out for errands look I would pair the t-shirt with either a pair of brightly colored (think in the coral neon family) skinnies or a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. Throw on some Tory Burch flats or a pair of Rag and Bone booties, put your hair in a messy side fishtail braid and top it off with an adorable Fedora. Mirrored aviators, an oversized Michael Kors watch, a classic pave bracelet from J. Crew and you’re set!

    For a lunch and shopping with the girls look (even work appropriate depending on the work environment) I’d pair the shirt with a black cotton skinnies on the bottom, a bright blazer (or black depending if it’s for work) blazer over the t-shirt, wrap a pretty Etro scarf around my neck, throw my hair in a ponytail, slip on a pair of those adorable Zara multicolored high-heels and couple it with a Goyard or Celine tote. A pair of those adorable Mantra neon earrings would polish off the whole look.

    For a dinner date with the hubs, I’d rock the t-shirt with a leather paneled pants/jeggings, a pair of leopard heels, a metallic clutch or one of those bright faux python McQueen inspired Mantra clutches, hair in a sleek topknot, pretty pair of Kenneth Jay Lane earrings and a J.Crew classic statement necklace (demure enough not enough to overpower shirt which should take center stage) and pretty stacked bracelets.

    I would love the geekchic (I coined it;)) t-shirt (especially signed up for Instagram for it!) – fingers crossed!!

    I’ve read some of your blogs. The one on Faryal Makdoom’s wedding makeup really made me laugh. You really put up things nicely. Could not participate in this competition but I really admired how some people came up with an authentic way of dressing up with this tee. Some people, however, plagiarized the content from the comments already done and it is seriously a shame that our country lack originality ! Anyway, keep up the good work.
