I’M WEARING: Kurta (awami by Amir Adnan) / Skinny Jeans (Cotton on) / Kolhapuris(Nagra) / Ring (Flea Market) / Black cuff (asos) / Key cuff (Disney) / Shades (factorie)
One of my favorite pieces from my wardrobe has to be this pink military inspired kurta that was designed (not by me) while I worked as a designer for Amir Adnan. Almost an immediate buy, surprisingly I haven’t donned it for many occassions. Part in the spirit of Mardi Gra and part just because I wanted to, the kurta tunic from the sub brand ‘awami’ is fun majorly due to its striking color. Hints of print via trim avoid it from going overtly serious. With a cloudy day at behest, it was a perfect excuse to for this cotton tunic that is easy and breezy… literally. Who said you need to feel all 50 shades of grey?? just add in a splash of color..hehe. Going with the contrast of oversize-streamline , because it looks good, I paired the kurta with a pair of skinny jeans from cotton on that still fit me despite all the binge eating I have been upto (need to stop that). Pairing it up with kolhapuris, I finished it up with a cuffs and a statement ring. The ASOS black cuff has just become my go to, and along with that I picked up this key shaped adjustable Disney cuff which reminded me of Maliha Rao because of the inscription MADE IN WONDERLAND.. hehe go read her about her and you’ll know why. A statement ring and reflective aviators from factorie accenting the look, tied it all perfectly.
I’M WEARING: Button Down Shirt (Cedar wood state) / Chinos (Zainab Market) / Socks (next) /
Desert boots (1st step) / Bowtie (Stoneage) / Cuff (ASOS) / Ring (Flea market)
Some days I just feel like creating a character of sorts, dressing up as that character and playing upon the traits in your own spin always results in some interesting looks. For this look, I went the geeky route, with wild hair inspired by a friend’s animation character of a crazy genius that she made quite a few years ago (I just shook my head wildly :P). With a polka dotted button down and plum colored pants, I rounded off the look with some laced up navy boots and cobalt blue socks. Adding in a bow tie, I went for a polka-on-polka effect with a navy dotted bowtie from stoneage along with big square shaped specs to bring out the nerd in me (which I do tend to be). A cuff from asos and a statement ring was just enough to add in a bit of quirk in accessories.
