WHAT TO WEAR: Day to Night

What to Wear

In a city that is near the coast, especially in India, the surging winter air is beginning to slow down, and the trends scream out spring! Sitting with friends at lunch and observing people and their style on campus one day, I came across this leggy Fashionista who manages to stand out without being over the top. She flaunts her unconventional chic outfit. It’s really cool to observe trends on campus these days, as people are wearing separates that shout out.

Mixing prints is one of the fun and experimental ways of dressing these days. After fancying the accessory line of Jimmy Choo by Rob Pruitt, I would say that this contemporary artist has created a very interesting blend of prints and textures in the fashion merchandise collection entitled the Fun Capsule. It’s great inspiration to create one’s distinct identity.

The Indo-western mix created by this Fashionista defines the fit and flair silhouette for a complete day to night look. The top is known as a kurta in India and is a very comfortable and fitted cotton separate. It is normally an A-line silhouette. The length is often altered by tucking it or wearing it out. The medley of pastel traditional prints on it suggest the uniqueness of the culture in the country. The skirt is playing its part of toning down the print above, and its hemline is something to watch out for. The netted long hemlines of skirts is trending these days.

The handbag quite subtly blends in. So we see that when animal and traditional prints meet, they speak volumes. Coming down to the shoes, I’d say way to go! These lace-up shoes have a cutting edge mesh outer structure. It says that the person wearing them is not just a girl next door.

The hues, prints and avant-garde approach of the Fashionista turns over a day look and makes it ideal for the night too. Just make sure you let your hair down.

One Simple Change: If the idea of blending prints is set in your mind, make sure to accessorize too. Wearing earrings of semi-precious stones and a kada, or bracelet, on your wrist will add a classic touch to the ensemble.
