You know it’s fashion week when your social media feed is all about runway videos and street style images! It’s not ‘just another day’ when you know you are going to some of the biggest festivals of the fashion world. It gives you a license to dress and look as creative as you can. Fashion week is all about celebrating fashion. So why ‘dress to impress’ when you can ‘dress your best’?
Deciding what you’re going to wear on those 5 days is also called the break-your-head-on-the-wall. As I always say, you must take time to plan your outfit. It should look like you’ve put in effort to put together ‘That look’. But then, don’t try too hard either!
Coming back to my looks, I decided to go for Indian designers (barring one day) as we were celebrating them, literally. Here are my two looks from the fashion week-
Look 1:. I’m majorly into co-ords aka ‘matchy matchy’ this season, and it has become like my go-to trend for every possible occasion. In fact out of 5 days, I was wearing matching separates on 3 days.
My first outfit was by Sneha Arora, from her Summer/Resort ’14 collection called ‘Leak’. Indigo color shirt with a high waist tea-length skirt. I fell in love with it at first sight and decided to wear it on the very first day of the event. To break the monotony I wore it with a tan belt, adding just the ghunghroo choker (also by the designer) and a backpack! (You just love everything if it’s in ‘trend’ and my love for backpacks have started.)
P.S: You know what you’re wearing is right, when Anita Dongre compliments you 😉
Outfit & Neckpiece-Sneha Arora, Bag-Accessorize, Footwear-Steeve Madden
Look 2- Day 2 at LFW celebrated the ‘Indian textiles’ and my first and only choice was designer Debashri Samanta. I’ve said it before and I can say it again, this young designer from Kolkata has got all that you need to become the next queen of handwoven garments. I picked this house print maxi dress from her spring/Summer ’14 collection.
Its not just me who loved this, you can also see Alia Bhatt donning the same maxi (here)
It’s a beautiful maxi, and most of us would flaunt it just like that. But I decided to take the androgyny root, pairing it up with a semi formal black jacket, and sliders. It was such a mixed look, as I wore my Amrapali ring with it, and a text neck piece that says ‘happy’ (I had all the reasons to be 😀 )
Dress-Debashri Samanta, Jacket-Mango, Neckpiece-Romwe, Bag-YSL, Sliders-Zara.
So you can call it, androgyny meets edgy meet girly meets chic. After all it’s fashion week, and no one is complaining!
P.S: Apart from getting clicked by many street style photographers, I was also covered by style cracker for one of the favorite street style looks on Day 2.
