Who knew a few years back that I would be writing elaborate fashion posts and churning out style tips via this blog. My personal style was always minimal and I loved to dig in details. My ideology was simple, to understand individual body types and dress accordingly. I had a knack of choosing color schemes and flattering fits according to body/skin type. Though I was always particular about how I presented myself but following trends was the last thing on my mind during my engineering days.
Fast forward to today, I keep myself updated of the latest trends but my personal style is still same, Minimal! I now love incorporating trending pieces with my functional wardrobe and this amalgamation excites me. In this post I have put down two current faves of mine, the shirt dress and striped lounge pants. The shirt dress trend is very much in and I have been layering it repeatedly over my outfits lately. It makes for a chic everyday wear and comfortable travel outfit. Plus anything with checkered print works for me somehow! I have scrunched up my hair for this look and put on my red lipstick to break the monotone.
Tip: When working with big prints and dark colors, keep in mind to tone down rest of your outfit. Say for example, This shirt dress goes well with an almost all-white outfit or even with blue denim and a light crop top. The idea is to understand color transitioning and make your outfit look new even with same old items!
This outfit was shot twice due to sudden clouds entourage and gloomy weather the first time. Second time again was a spoiler with bright hot sun for my makeup to stay in place. Somehow we managed to get a few good shots which I have put up on blog! Hope you like the pictures and if you do, do let me know!
