My #TIL moment this week has been this: Westside launches its freshest, newest styles on Tata CLiQ every Friday. Like clock-work. And the up side is that it saves me a trip to the store. My top picks from this week’s collection were a co-ordinated work suit, a fun polka dot jumpsuit and a maxi dress in the evergreen check print.
Considering that I get so many queries on styling tips and the looks I wear, today I’m going to answer some fashion FAQs, based on the looks I have created using my Westside finds.
What’s your style of dressing?
My style of dressing is always very Street Style-forward and casual. I like to keep everything comfortable be it formals or party wear. It depends on where I’m going, how much time I will be out for and what occasion it is. But you will always spot me in comfort clothes. I believe one can pull off any basic outfit if they know the right way to style it!
Outfit 1: Maxi Dress
This dress is so easy breezy – it makes me feel comfortable, and yet so stylish. I’ve styled it with a simple sling bag and a basic heel.
I can spend my whole day in this outfit! It’s perfect for a day out, shopping spree, brunch or even a lunch date!
Outfit 2: Work Co-Ords
We often complain about boring outfits for work, but this look is stylish and work-appropriate. I have chosen Co-Ords because they are so easy to pull off. Nothing more is needed! I can actually go out for dinner after work in this outfit.
What I love most about this blazer-and-pants combination is the print – the checks give it such an edgy look.
Keep in mind that the perfect fit also matters, especially when it comes to formal wear, otherwise it won’t look presentable. This suit enhances my shoulders and makes them look broad and toned!
The pants are high-waisted, which gives that elongated look and makes me look taller. So yeah, I really love this look!
Outfit 3: Polka Dot Jumpsuit
I love outfits such as this for dinners and nights out. They’re so comfortable! So chic! So edgy!
I picked this piece because I love the print; plus, the neck line is so sensual, which is what makes it so extraordinary. I love how it enhances my figure and makes me look so tall and curvy!
What do you keep in mind while picking a garment?
I pick styles and prints that can stand the test of time. All three are my forever pieces, so don’t be surprised if you see me repeating them across seasons! I don’t think polka dots, co-ords or maxi dresses will ever go out of style.
What accessories do you use to create your look?
For these looks, specifically, I have kept it minimal. I’ve accessorised with sling bags and heels. In fact, I like wearing heels, as they add height. Though one can pair these outfits with basic loafers or flats.
When it comes to sling bags, I’ve kept it basic, because I prefer to mix and match them with several outfits; but I like to pick unique bags in terms of shape and the colour. In my opinion, bags should be basic, as then the outfit is highlighted and that’s how my style is!
