href=”author/sakshi-kore”>Sakshi Kore , 15 Feb 2021Parineeti Chopra

Of late, Parineeti Chopra has been making a strong case for fuss-free off-duty looks using wardrobe basics. Solid-hued sweatshirts and t-shirts, breezy shrugs and flared pants or straight-cuts have been winning the actor’s vote of approval for work meetings, salon appointments and flights. Well, it only makes sense considering the lockdown, that had a major impact on all our sartorial preferences; cue in the popularity of loungewear. That said, Parineeti was spotted out and about in the city last week in three standout off-duty looks that are not only easy to recreate but also casual yet dressy enough to take you to a variety of plans—from a casual brunch to a coffee date or a shopping spree. Interested to know more? Keep scrolling!

How Parineeti Chopra makes wardrobe basics look dressy:

In look number one, Parineeti was spotted giving the most-loved staple of 2020 and now 2021, a spot in her outfit—a cosy oversized sweatshirt. The actor wore a pristine white sweater with a fuzzy texture, with a pair of beige trousers. The monochromatic palette of her look teamed with black sunnies and shiny Gucci slip-ons really made such a casual outfit look luxe! Perfect for brunches to coffee dates, no?

In look number two, Parineeti wore a plain white crop-top and teamed it with a pair of flared leather pants, instantly upping the ante of the look. She accessorised her outfit with round-shaped black sunnies with gold rims and an olive green Stella McCartney sling bag. White sneakers rounded off her look, which can easily classify as a cute date-ready outfit.

Look number three is a little more classy, definitely brunch-worthy and hella easy to put together. All you need is a cute little crop-top and bright-coloured palazzos. Parineeti wore her crop-top featuring a quirky twist on the front with a pair of burnt orange pants. She accessorised her look with an ivory headband that came with a bow on top, and sunglasses in the same colour as her pants. Her shiny Gucci slip-ons completed her casual look for the day!

7 Adaptive Brands That Are Revolutionising Fashion

href=”author/rishikadevnani”>Rishika Devnani , 15 Feb 2021Adaptive Clothing Brands | (Source: Instagram | @fforaofficial, @kathleenokk)

If you are someone with a disability or have gone through surgery, or know someone who has, you are probably familiar with the concept of adaptive clothing. Unfortunately, there has been massive neglect when it comes to designing fashionable and functional clothing. According to numbers from the National Statistics Office, over 2.2% of India’s population lives with a certain physical or mental disability

In response to this need, we have seen international brands, including big names such as Nike, UGG and Tommy Hilfiger launch adaptive clothing collections. There are specific features in these clothing items that make them smoother to use for those with limitations. For instance, magnetic closures and zipperless clothing are replacing buttons. Additionally, sensory-friendly traits such as side fasteners and soft fabrics are some characteristics that you will find incorporated in these designs. 

We are glad that brands have finally modified fashionable clothing to further highlight the strength of people with determination. Everyone should be able to look fashionable and be super comfortable at the same time.

For awareness, personal use or for a gift—scroll below some stylish items from 7 adaptive clothing brands:1) UGG Universal

We all know about these soft as fur fluffy boots that have been on our wishlist at some point. The company wanted to provide utmost comfort and easy utility for those with limitations. And so UGG partnered up with Zappos Adaptive to release the collection UGG Universal. They have modified their signature boots with special features to allow for easy wearing. Their best-selling boots come with an over-sized dual zip, a pull tab and a wider opening to allow for an effortless on-and-off. As a result, these timeless boots are now wearable by a larger community!

2) Tommy Adaptive

Tommy Hilfiger is one of the first popular brands that largely approached the issue. They did this by launching an innovative collection for women, men and kids with physical impairments. The brand’s designs are stylish and wearable for work, weekends and sports activities. Addressing the needs of those with difficulties, his clothes incorporate one-handed zippers, discreet part openings, magnetic closures and a sensory-friendly knit composition. We love how the brand is focused on designing adaptive clothes with style!

5) Slick Chicks

When disabled or injured, there are many basic challenges to accustom to. One of them being the simple task of putting on your undergarments every day. Encouraging independence and confidence, Slick Chicks is an adaptive underwear brand. Their stand out feature is side fasteners that allow you to comfortably change in and out of your clothing. Moreover, they feature panties in various styles and in the essential colours of black, beige and white. Antibacterial, super soft and in breathable cotton—these panties are genius for those with limited capabilities.

6) Care+Wear

Did someone say a collaboration with Oscar de la Renta? Care+Wear is a well-known brand that designs fashionable, functional and medically proficient products. Working with the input of several designers and patients, they create items that are safe, comfortable and stylish. The company has also worked with the design house, Oscar de la Renta to design a dual-port access chest hoodie for post-surgery. This hoodie sports a flattering fit with easy access to the chest and port area. Allowing for convenience during treatments and chemotherapy. The dual zip cancels the need of lifting your arms to remove clothing which can be painful post-surgery. Adding a sentimental value to it, the hoodie was created to honour the designer who passed away from cancer in 2014.

All You Need To Know About The Gluten-Free Diet—As Told By A Nutritional Scientist

href=”author/suruchi-patwary”>Suruchi Patwary , 15 Feb 2021Dr. Siddhant Bhargava, Fitness and Nutritional Scientist, Co-Founder of Food Darzee

It has not been long that the gluten-free diet became recognisable among the general public. In the present times, where people have started taking charge of their health, the gluten-free lifestyle is all the rage! Many health fanatics tend to stay with the belief that following a gluten-free diet is a quick way towards achieving weight loss. This form of diet is currently prevalent to be the sole treatment for patients suffering from celiac disease. That’s due to the lack of pills or therapies available, the only way to manage celiac disease is through following a strict, 100% gluten-free diet.

We spoke to Dr. Siddhant Bhargava, a Fitness and Nutrutional Scientist and the Co-Founder of Food Darzee to help us understand everything about the gluten-free diet, what it is, the advantages and disadvantages of it, what to eat and what not to eat when following a gluten-free diet and lots more. Scroll down to read everything he had to say about it!

So What Exactly Is Gluten?Gluten-Free Food By baibaz | www.shutterstock.com

It is a family of proteins present in edibles like wheat, barley, rye, and the by-products of these grains, comprising of malt and brewer’s yeast. Products ranging from packaged potato chips to medications can encompass gluten. A gluten-free diet tends to eliminate all products that contain these ingredients. Those who choose to live free of gluten can still enjoy a wholesome diet filled with fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, meats, poultry, fish, and most dairy products. Such components are naturally gluten-free and harmless to individuals who do not have allergies to these particular food groups.

For most people, consuming gluten-rich foods does not pose any problem. In fact, edibles like whole wheat, rye, and barley help in enhancing plenty of vital nutrients in the body. But some people feel uncomfortable after consuming gluten-rich foods. The most severe reaction is called celiac disease, which is an autoimmune disorder.

More About The Celiac DiseaseCeliac disease symptoms By BlueRingMedia | www.shutterstock.com

For people dealing with this ailment, even a microscopic amount of gluten—as less as 20 parts per million, can activate a reaction and avert the body from absorbing nutrients. An intake of gluten in these people attacks their immune system and impairs the lining of their small intestine. This malabsorption may trigger gastrointestinal symptoms like cramps, bloating, and gas. Unfortunately, about half of all people with celiac disease may not show these signs. Without an absence of any indication to let them comprehend they have unintentionally consumed gluten, they have to be even more careful with their dietary choices. If celiac disease is left unattended, these people may suffer from grave health issues ranging from anemia and osteoporosis to cancer and even infertility!

Health Benefits Of Going-Off Gluten

Consuming a diet that is free of gluten has many advantages, particularly for someone with celiac disease. Below are some of those advantages!

1. Helps To Relieve Digestive SymptomsDigestive Symptoms By BlurryMe | www.shutterstock.com

Most people opt for a gluten-free diet to get rid of digestive problems like abdominal bloating, constipation, flatulence, and diarrhoea. It has been researched that embracing a gluten-free diet can facilitate easing digestive symptoms even in people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

2. Can Lessen Bouts Of Chronic Inflammation In Those Suffering From Celiac Disease

It has been indicated that going off gluten can decrease markers of swelling like antibody levels. It can also facilitate in treating gut injury caused by gluten-related inflammation in those suffering from the ailment.

3. Can Prove To Be An Energy Booster

People with celiac disease often complain about feeling fatigued and sluggish. This may be a result of the nutrient deficiencies that damage the gut. In such a case, switching over to this form of diet will lift your energy levels and avert you from feeling tired.

4. Can Lead To Weight LossWeight Loss By Stock-Asso | www.shutterstock.com

It’s not uncommon to lose some extra pounds when you are on a gluten0free diet. This is because it eradicates many high-calories junk foods from your diet. It substitutes these edibles with fruit, veggies, and lean proteins. However, one must avoid eating processed gluten-free foods that can speedily add a lot of calories to your diet.

The Downside Of A Gluten-Free Diet

In spite of having numerous health benefits, a gluten-free diet can have some downsides too and constipation is one of them. It is the most common side-effect associated with a gluten-free diet. These edibles eliminate many fibre-rich sources like bread, bran, and other wheat-based produce. This can disturb a healthy bowel movement from happening, thus making one constipated. One must consume broccoli, beans, lentils, brussels sprouts to reduce constipation.

What To Eat & What Not To Eat On A Gluten-Free DietGluten-Free Diet By Foxys Forest Manufacture | www.shutterstock.com

There are a variety of starch, grain, and flour substitutes that naturally do not comprise gluten and thus can be consumed by those on a gluten-free diet. These alternatives include amaranth flour, corn starch, buckwheat, brown and white rice, almond flour, millets, corn, soy flour, quinoa, sorghum, and coconut flour to name a few.

Processed foods often contain gluten, hence it is important to read labels of processed edibles before buying or consuming them. Foods like bread, bulgur wheat, beer, candies, cereals, cookies, fries, bread croutons, pasta, and salad dressings are a big no when you are on a gluten-free diet.

People can make a range of gluten-free meals by swapping wheat, cereal, and pasta with gluten-free alternatives. A significant aspect to bear in mind is that when you are eliminating sources of gluten from your diet, it is essential that you must get sufficient nutrients from other dietary sources. This will help boost a person’s physical and emotional well-being!

Hope the above information helps you understand more about the gluten-free diet!
