In the midst of a busy semester when work just doesn’t seem to stop, a wonderful break called the ‘weekend’ is long awaited. It is perhaps the only time for hostel students to go home and lighten up. The feeling of meeting your parents and catching up on everything (by everything I actually mean everything) is just so relieving! The comfort and the homely feeling is always a dream.
Fashionistas switch on the comfort button when they decide on their outfit to go back home. This season hasn’t been a very friendly one for the most desirable line of fabrics. The heat and dust ideally make you depend on linen, cotton, denim and rayon. Mercerized cotton is also very much depended upon, as it’s light and silkily soft for the weather.
This Fashionista is a sophomore studying textile design, and it’s evident by her style that she prefers a blend of comfort and luxe fabrics. The polka-dot trend she exhibits is probably one of those fashion favorites that go a very long way. But it is very important to flaunt this pattern in the right way. Big bold polka-dots, if not contrasted well, may just bring down the key factor of this ensemble.
Her outfit consists of this pattern on her high-waisted shorts which indeed stands out with the help of a subtle range of accessories and clothing. Don’t forget the royal blue! The color enhances the silhouette and brings vibrancy to it. These days, designers try different methods of bending their creations with these polka-dots and it was made evident during Milan Fashion Week 2013.
I love the overall look created here. It is very important to let the pattern speak for itself. The muted soft off-white top justifies this. A closer look brings to attention the intricate crochet work done on the neckline that beautifies it further. Further down are suede strapped flat sandals kissing her feet. I must add that the gorgeous minimalistic colorblock wallet is second in line to steal the prize.
So whether it is spending the weekend with your parents, or just back in your hometown, this outfit is the way to go. Dress up for a weekend of delicious food, good drinks and your comfort space, and it’s relaxing all the way.
One Simple Change: Accessorize! Yes, the addition of funky jewelry is nothing but an element of quirkiness. A leather cuff glamorizes your hands, and adding a pair of sunglasses makes you look sexy to go out for shopping!
