Formal Indulgence!

As the autumn approaches and there’s chill in the atmosphere, my heart wanders off to days with wooly jumpers and hot chocolate. It’s mid week and tiredness has already taken over my spirit. Amidst all these lazying, I realise I am late for work and have meetings lined up.

I quickly jump out of my bed, barely take a shower and fish out these snuggly fitted dresses that are perfect for formal event. I feel sorted for next day as well.

For the first day, I chose my jeans dress. The fit hugs my curves well and makes me feel like the boss lady that I am. I ditched the heels for comfortable stone encrusted flats and wore simple pearl drop earrings. The look was completed with my favorite gold watch and a hint of red on my lips.

The orange and pink dress has been one of my favorite as it gives a fresh vibe and a structured look. For Team Lunch, I paired it with the statement pearl neckpiece and as the colours are too bright, I went for subtlety in footwear.

The two formalised dresses really worked well for someone like me who was too confused to take a decision and solved my mid-week dress woe.

Shrug it!

An ardent globetrotter is always in the search of some really comfortable clothes. And when we say this we also mean that it has to be uber chic and Instagram worthy.

Upon seeing the black crop top, the first thing that struck is to pair it with plain white shorts. Of course you can go with a distressed one too. This somehow gave a contented feeling that we wanted. To give it a smarter finish, we accentuated the whole look with a long denim shrug. And that worked wonders. The embellishments were kept minimal as the polka dots were the attention seeker.

You could also alter the denim jacket with a different colour or fabric that matches well with your shorts and top. If you too want to try this look for a short trip with your friends, then shop the look below:

The Unconventional

Denims are often categorized under casuals but we thought of pairing it with formals for an unconventional and different look.

We were quite anxious while putting together this look but went ahead with it. The basic idea was to create a laid back formal look which would be a perfect Friday dressing. Channeling the lazy weekend ahead with maintaining the office protocol was a risky experiment that shaped up well.


The focus of the outfit here is the denim shirt while rest of the look has been kept subtle with beige tones. The lavie beige bag and gold watch has played the perfect accessory.

You can recreate the same with lighter tones of top and formals too. As they say, play with fashion and define your own style.
